Privacy
Policy

LAST UPDATED:
AUG 6, 2020
At Locals, your privacy is a top priority. Your privacy is at the core of the way we design and build the services and products you know and love, so that you can fully trust them and focus on building meaningful connections. We appreciate that you put your trust
in us when you provide us with your information
and we do not take this lightly.

WE DO NOT COMPROMISE
WITH YOUR PRIVACY

We design all of our products and services with your privacy in mind. We involve experts from various fields, including legal, security, engineering, product design and others
to make sure that no decision is taken
without respect for your privacy.

WE STRIVE TO BE TRANSPARENT IN THE WAY WE PROCESS YOUR DATA

Because we use many of the same online services you do, we know that insufficient information and overly complicated language are common issues in privacy policies. We take the exact opposite approach: we have written our Privacy Policy
and related documents in plain language.
We actually want you to read our policies
and understand our privacy practices!

LOCALS.ORG, INC. (“WE,” “OUR,” “US”) IS COMMITTED
TO PROTECTING
YOUR PRIVACY

This privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) sets out how we handle the information we collect directly from you when you provide it to us or automatically when you use the Service, including information obtained through third parties.
