We created this initial document
Our mission is to bring everyone insightful career coaching and mentorship, making it easier for people to excel in their careers. To do that, we show you personalized content we think you’ll be interested in based on information we collect from you and third parties. We only use that information where we have a proper legal basis for doing so.
We wrote this policy to help you understand what information we collect, how we use it and what choices you have about it. Because we’re an internet company, some of the concepts below are a little technical, but we’ve tried our best to explain things in a simple and clear way. We welcome your questions and comments on this policy at goats [at] aibex.com.
There are a variety of ways we collect information so that we can show you the personalized content mentioned above.
When you sign up for or use Aibex you voluntarily share certain information including your name, email address, phone number, photos, journal entries, conversations, comments, and any other information you give us. You can also choose to share your precise location using your device settings or through photos. We will still use your IP address, which is used to approximate your location, even if you don’t choose to share your precise location. You will also have the option to share other information about yourself such as your gender, age and preferred language.
If you connect your Facebook, Google or other third-party accounts to Aibex, we use information from those accounts (such as your friends or contacts) to improve your Aibex experience. This is dependent on the privacy policies or settings for those accounts.
