You maintain the right to withdraw such consent at any time.


We use your Personal Data to provide you with the information or content that you have requested, and, in some cases, to contact you about our products, features or services. If you no longer wish to receive press releases or any other type of information from us, you may send us an email through our “Contact Us” link to change your preferences; or follow the “unsubscribe” link provided in the e-mail that you receive.

We use non-identifying information collected through Halp Services in the aggregate to better understand your use of our services and to enhance your enjoyment and experience. For example, we may use the information to improve the design and content of our services or to analyze the services that we offer.

We may employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Our employees, agents and contractors who have access to Personal Data are required to protect the information in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Policy.


Account and Profile Information. In order to use our services, we collect data from you through the use of our bot including but not limited to: name, avatar(s), email address, employer, title, permission settings and preferences.

IP Address.  To make Halp Services more useful to you, our servers (which may be hosted by a third-party service provider) collect information from you, including your browser type, operating system, Internet Protocol (“IP”) address (a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet, which may vary from session to session), domain name, and/or a date/time stamp for your visit.  We may associate your IP address with your account and your other Personal Data.

Log Files.  As is true of most websites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files.  This information includes IP addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (“ISP”), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data.  We use this information to analyze trends, administer the Services, track users’ movements around the Site or the App, gather demographic information about our user base as a whole, and better tailor our Services to our users’ needs.  For example, some of the information may be collected so that when you visit the Site or use the App again, it will recognize you and provide other information, support or Services tailored to your user needs.  Except as noted in this Privacy Policy, we do not link this automatically-collected data to Personal Data. 

Cookies.  Like many online services, we use cookies to collect information.  “Cookies” are small pieces of information that a website sends to your computer’s hard drive while you are viewing the website.  We may use both session cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them) to provide you with a more personal and interactive experience of our Services.

We use two broad categories of cookies: (1) first party cookies, served directly by us to your computer or mobile device, which are used only by us to recognize your computer or mobile device when it revisits our Services; and (2) third party cookies, which are served by service providers on our Services, and can be used by such service providers to recognize your computer or mobile device when it visits other websites.

Our Service uses the following types of cookies for the purposes set out below:

Type of cookie


Essential Cookies

These cookies are essential to provide you with our Services and to enable you to use some of the features. For example, they help the content of the pages you request load quickly. Without these cookies, the services that you have asked for cannot be provided, and we only use these cookies to provide you with those services.

Functionality Cookies

These cookies allow our Services to remember choices you make when you use our Services, such as remembering your language preferences, remembering your login details and remembering the changes you make to other parts of our Services which you can customize. The purpose of these cookies is to provide you with a more personal experience and to avoid you having to re-enter your preferences every time you visit our Services.

Analytics and Performance Cookies

These cookies are used to collect information about traffic to our Services and how users use our Services. The information gathered does not identify any individual visitor. The information is aggregated and anonymous. It includes the number of visitors to our Services, the websites that referred them to our Services, the pages they visited on our Services, what time of day they visited our Services, whether they have visited our Services before, and other similar information. We use this information to help operate our Services more efficiently, to gather broad demographic information and to monitor the level of activity on our Services.

We use Google Analytics for this purpose. Google Analytics uses its own cookies. It is only used to improve how our Services works. You can find out more information about Google Analytics cookies here:  https://developers.google.com/analytics/resources/concepts/gaConceptsCookies

You can find out more about how Google protects your data here: www.google.com/analytics/learn/privacy.html.

You can prevent the use of Google Analytics relating to your use of Services by downloading and installing the browser plugin available via this link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en-GB

Social Media Cookies

These cookies are used when you share information using a social media sharing button or “like” button on Services or you link your account or engage with our content on or through a social networking website such as Facebook, Twitter or Google+. The social network will record that you have done this.


You can typically remove or reject cookies via your browser settings. In order to do this, follow the instructions provided by your browser (usually located within the “settings,” “help” “tools” or “edit” facility).  Many browsers are set to accept cookies until you change your settings.  Further information about cookies, including how to see what cookies have been set on your computer or mobile device and how to manage and delete them, visit www.allaboutcookies.org and www.youronlinechoices.com.uk. 

If you do not accept our cookies, you may experience some inconvenience in your use of our Services. For example, we may not be able to recognize your computer or mobile device and you may need to log in every time you visit our Services.

Analytics.  We may use third-party analytics providers (like Google Analytics) to help analyze how users use the Services.  These analytics providers use cookies and other technologies to collect information such as how often users use the Services, what pages they visit, and what other sites they used prior to coming to the Site. We use the information we get from these providers only to improve the Services. They collect the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit the Site or use the App, rather than your name or other personally identifying information.  We do not combine the information generated through the use of such analytics with your Personal Data. Although such services may set persistent cookies on computer to identify you as a unique user the next time you visit the Site, the cookie is designed to be used only by the service provider.

We use cookies to understand site and Internet usage and to improve or customize the content, offerings or advertisements on our site. We also may use cookies to help us offer you products, programs, or services that may be of interest to you and to deliver relevant advertising.

We, our third-party service providers, advertisers or our partners also may use cookies to manage and measure the performance of advertisements displayed on or delivered by us and/or other networks or sites. This also helps us, our service providers and partners provide more relevant advertising.

We, our third party service providers, advertiser or our partners may also use “web beacons” or clear .gifs, or similar technologies, which are small pieces of code placed on a web page, to monitor the behavior and collect data about the visitors viewing a web page. For example, web beacons may be used to count the users who visit a web page or to deliver a cookie to the browser of a visitor viewing that page.
