To enrich our members' experience, we request and display some personal information to other members and visitors, which allows our users to identify each other and expand their network.  LuckyBars members can change their profile information at any time and can control how other members and the service communicates with them.

Information we Collect & How we use it

The LuckyBars Site collects user submitted information such as name and email address to authenticate users and to send notifications to those users relating to the LuckyBars service. LuckyBars also collects other profile data including but not limited to: birthday, profile picture, personal description in order to assist users in finding and communicating with each other.

The LuckyBars Site also logs non-personally-identifiable information including IP address, profile information, aggregate user data, and browser type, from users to the site. This data is used to manage the website, track usage and improve the website services. This non-personally-identifiable information may be shared with third parties to provide more relevant services and advertisements to members. User IP addresses are recorded for security and monitoring purposes, and to provide a customized service to each member.

User Profile information including members' pictures and names are displayed to people in order to facilitate user interaction in the LuckyBars social networking community. Email addresses are used for the purposes of inviting new friends to join LuckyBars, to add users to members' friends' networks, and to send notifications related to the service. With the exception of inviting friends, adding friends, and notifications, a member's email address is not shared or displayed to people within a user's personal network unless the member specifically chooses to do so. Users within a personal network can communicate on the LuckyBars Site with each other through the LuckyBars service, without disclosing their email addresses. Users' full names, home addresses, and mobile phone numbers are never directly revealed to other members unless the member specifically chooses to do so. To facilitate searching and finding friends and acquaintances on the service, the LuckyBars Site allows users to search for other members using a variety of methods including, without limitation, first and last name, and email address.

We may also use a user's email address to send updates, a newsletter or news regarding the service. Members may choose not to receive email of this type by changing their "notification" setting to "Do not send me notification emails" in the user "Account Settings" section of their member profile.

From time to time, LuckyBars or a partner, may sponsor a promotion, sweepstake or contest on the LuckyBars Site. Users may be asked to provide personal information including name, email address or home address or to answer questions in order to participate. We may transfer personal information to certain ad partners that you have explicitly requested to receive information from. It will be clear at the point of collection who is collecting the personal information and whose privacy statement will apply.

Invitations and Other Communications to Non-members

LuckyBars members can invite friends to join the service by sending invitation emails via our automated invitation system. The LuckyBars Site stores the email addresses that members provide so that the respondents may be added to the friend's list of the member sending the invitations, and also to send reminders of the invitations LuckyBars does not sell these email addresses or use them to send any other communication besides invitations, invitation reminders (up to three (3) per email address). Recipients of invitations from LuckyBars may contact LuckyBars to request the removal of their information from our database.
