Privacy Policy

This privacy policy ("Privacy Policy") explains how Edgehim LLC ("Edgehim" or "we") collects and processes information from members and users of the website.

If we ever need additional personal information for a specific reason, we will tell you and ask for your permission. Also, to the extent that [business] has links to other websites (like retailers), please note that we do not own, operate, or control them, and they have their own controlling privacy policies that you should review.

It goes without saying, we can't help you develop meaningful connections without some information about you, such as basic profile details and the types of people you'd like to meet. We also collect information generated as you use our services, for example access logs, as well as information from third parties, like when you access our services through a social media account. If you want additional info, we go into more detail below.

In order to provide our products, Edgehim collects information that you share directly with us when you use our website, extension, or Mobile App. Though you don't have to, you can choose to provide your email to set up an account with us, which lets you add items to your Droplist, earn Edgehim Gold, see a personalized recommendation feed, and more. You can also set up your profile with your name and other info for a more personalized experience.

Edgehim also collects technical information about your device and use of Edgehim to make sure that our products are working correctly. The information we collect is geared to providing Edgehim members with a better way to shop online and to help us develop, improve, and market our services.

Account and Profile Information.

When you become a member of Edgehim, you share a limited amount of information during the registration process, optionally including your name, email address, member password and other registration information to personalize your profile.

If you choose to link a social media profile (like Facebook) at sign-in, Edgehim will store this information for login purposes. Linking your social media profile grants Edgehim access to the profile, but only as allowed by your permission settings, that platform's terms of service, and this Privacy Policy. We will NOT track any of your social media activity, and we cannot post anything on your behalf.

If you choose to sign in with Google, you'll have the option of importing your contacts so that you can refer your friends to Edgehim. Referral addresses are masked, so we never see or store them, nor can we contact anyone without your permission.
