1. Information that we collect and store

We collect and store two different types of information: personal information and user content.

Personal Information

This is information that you give us when you create your Kuhlab account: your full name, username, password and email address.

You may also give us information for your user profile such as your job title, the industry you work in, and your selected hashtags. This information allows us to help you or others to be searchable on Kuhlab.

To customize our service for you, we may collect and store your precise geographic location. This allows our search engine to calculate your distance from other users, allowing users to filter their search results by location. We may ask for your consent to do so on your first use of the Service. However, your precise geographic location at any time is not shared with other users.

User Content

Kuhlab provides a platform for users to post content, including jobs, projects, photos, audio and video files, comments, feedback and other materials ("User Content"). This means that other users may search for, see, use, or share any User Content that you make available through the Service, consistent with the this Privacy Policy and our Terms of Use.

2. How we use this information

We may use your contact information to contact you by email about the Service, for example, account verification, changes/updates to features of the Service, technical and security notices. Please note that you cannot opt out of Service-related emails.

We may also use this information, and any User Content, to enforce our Terms of Use.

We may disclose your personal information if we are compelled to do so by law, or in response to a valid request by a law enforcement or governmental authority.

We do not share your personal information with other companies for marketing purposes.

Please remember that once User Content is posted, it is automatically available to other Kuhlab users, may be shared by them, and is effectively in the public domain.

We may use analytics companies to help us understand how the Service is being used. These companies use anonymous data (such as your IP address or device ID) and do not share it, except in aggregate form. No data is shared as to any individual user.

3. Security measures

We use [specify which security technology you use] to try and keep personal information transmitted to and from our server secure. However, we cannot ensure the security of any information you transmit to us over public or third party networks.

Please do your part to help us. You are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your password and for controlling access to emails between you and Kuhlab, at all times. We are not responsible for the functionality, privacy, or security measures of any other organisation.

4. Retention of your information

We will retain your personal information for as long as you are a user of the Service. We will delete User Content once you are no longer a user of the Service, or once you have deleted that content from your profile (whichever is earlier). Please remember that because it can be shared with other users, User Content may be in the public domain even after it is deleted.
