Threaded Privacy Policy

Effective date: October 15th, 2022

We at Threaded know you care about how your personal information is used and shared, and we take your privacy seriously. Please read the following to learn more about our Privacy Policy. By using or accessing the Services in any manner, you acknowledge that you accept the practices and policies outlined in this Privacy Policy, and you hereby consent that we will collect, use, and share your information in the following ways, unless you exercise your right to opt out of the sale of your information under CCPA.

Remember that your use of Threaded's Services is at all times subject to the Terms of Use, which incorporates this Privacy Policy. Any terms we use in this Policy without defining them have the definitions given to them in the Terms of Use.

What does this Privacy Policy cover?

This Privacy Policy covers our treatment of personally identifiable information ("Personal Information") that we gather when you are accessing or using our Services, but not to the practices of companies we don't own or control, or people that we don't manage.

We gather various types of Personal Information from our users, as explained in more detail below, and we use this Personal Information internally in connection with our Services, including to personalize, provide, and improve our services, to allow you to set up a user account and profile, to contact you and allow other users to contact you, to fulfill your requests for certain products and services, and to analyze how you use the Services. In certain cases, we may also share some Personal Information with third parties, but only as described below.

The Personal Information of Minors

As noted in the Terms of Use, we do not collect, maintain, or sell the personal information of minors under the age of 16 years without affirmative authorization. If you believe that a minor under 16 may have provided us personal information, please contact us at so we can take appropriate steps in accordance with our legal obligations and this policy.

Will Threaded ever change this Privacy Policy?

We're constantly trying to improve our Services, so we may change this Privacy Policy from time to time as well, but we will alert you to changes by placing a notice on the Services, by sending you an email, and/or by some other means. Please note that if you've opted not to receive legal notice emails from us (or you haven't provided us with your email address), those legal notices will still govern your use of the Services, and you are still responsible for reading and understanding them. If you use the Services after any changes to the Privacy Policy have been posted, that means you agree to all of the changes.

What are my rights regarding my personal information processed by Threaded?

Under applicable data and privacy protection laws and our policies, you have several basic rights regarding the personal information that we process about you. Here are your specific rights:

Right to Access. The right to access the personal information we process about you.

Right to Transfer. The right to receive the personal information we process about you in a commonly used format and to have it transferred to another data controller based on your consent.

Right to Correct. The right to correct your personal information without undue delay where that personal information is in accurate or incomplete.

Right to Deletion. The right to have your personal information deleted in certain circumstances.

Right to Restriction. The right to restrict our processing of some or all of your personal information in certain circumstances.

Right to Opt Out. You have the right to opt out of our processing of your personal information.

Right to close your account. The right to request that we close your account.

Right to Non-Discriminatory Treatment. You have the right not to receive discriminatory treatment by Threaded for the exercise of your privacy rights under the CCPA.

If you wish to exercise any of these rights, please contact us at

We will honor the requests you make related to your rights as the law allows, which means in some cases there may be legal or other legitimate reasons that we may not be able to address the specific request you make. You do not have to pay to exercise your rights. We will respond to your request within 30 days.

To ensure the security of your personal information, we will need to verify your identity once you make a request. To do this, we will request that you provide certain information about your identity that we can verify against our records.

If you would like to designate an authorized agent to make a request under the CCPA on your behalf, please indicate so in your email request to us at When our users use an authorized agent to submit a request to know or a request to delete, we will generally request that: (a) you provide your authorized agent with written permission to act on your behalf; and (b) the authorized agent must verify their own identity with us. An authorized agent with a valid power of attorney will suffice for these purposes.

Information You Provide to Us:

We receive and store any information you knowingly provide to us. For example, through the registration process and/or through your account settings, we may collect your Personal Information such as the following: address, city, current and past employers, country, date of birth, email address, first name, last name, gender, preferred pronoun, password, phone number, picture, profession, state, username, workplace and ZIP/postal code.

If you provide your third-party account credentials to us, you understand some content and/or information in those accounts ("ThirdParty Account Information") may be transmitted into your account with us, and that Third Party Account Information transmitted to our Services is covered by this Privacy Policy; for example, we may receive some of your information from LinkedIn if you connect your LinkedIn profile with your Threaded account. Certain information may be required to register with us or to take advantage of some of our features.

We may communicate with you if you've provided us the means to do so. For example, if you've given us your email address, we may send you promotional email offers on behalf of other businesses or email you about your use of the Services. If you do not want to receive communications from us, please indicate your preference by opting out of receiving such emails.

Information Collected Automatically

Whenever you interact with our Services, we automatically receive and record information on our server logs from your browser or device, which may include your IP address, geolocation data, device identification,"cookie" information, the type of browser and/or device you're using to access our Services, and the page or feature you requested.

"Cookies" are identifiers we transfer to your browser or device that allow us to recognize your browser or device and tell us how and when pages and features in our Services are visited and by how many people. You may be able to change the preferences on your browser or device to prevent or limit your device's acceptance of cookies, but this may prevent you from taking advantage of some of our features.

If you click on a link to a third-party website or service, such third party may also transmit cookies to you. Again, this Privacy Policy does not cover the use of cookies by any third parties, and we aren't responsible for their privacy policies and practices. Please be aware that cookies placed by third parties may continue to track your activities online even after you have left our Services, and those third parties may not honor"Do Not Track" requests you have set using your browser or device.

We may use this data to customize content for you that we think you might like, based on your usage patterns. We may also use it to improve the Services; for example, this data can tell us how often users use a particular feature of the Services, and we can use that knowledge to make the Services interesting to as many users as possible.
