Limbo Privacy Policy

Your privacy is genuinely important to us and your trust is a key aspect of our business. Here's how we manage, use, and protect your data.

This document is our Privacy Policy, which describes what information we collect and what it's used for. It applies to all interactions with, including interactions with our site through widgets or embeds we may build.

Please read this Privacy Policy carefully. Your use of and/or registration with Limbo will constitute your agreement to our policy. If you cannot agree to the terms and conditions set forth below, please do not use our services. Additionally, our Privacy Policy is part of our Terms of Service, and by using Limbo you agree to both.

What Limbo Collects

Visit Information

Like most website operators, Limbo collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Limbo's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Limbo's visitors use its website. From time to time, Limbo may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website. Limbo also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. We may use this to improve the service, for example in determining geographical area or to detect spam.

Information You Provide to Us

We receive and store any information you enter on our website or provide to us. You can choose not to provide us with certain information, but it may impact your use of Limbo.

Certain visitors to Limbo's websites choose to interact with Limbo in ways that require Limbo to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Limbo gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask users creating accounts to provide an email address. Those who engage in transactions with Limbo – by purchasing reveal requests, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Limbo collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with Limbo. Limbo does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Aggregated Statistics

Limbo may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Limbo may monitor new profile submission rates to help identify spam. Limbo may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Limbo does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

How We May Use and Share Your Personally-Identifying Information

In Order to Provide Our Services

Limbo discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Limbo's behalf or to provide services available at Limbo's websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Limbo's websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.

Limbo posts the information that you provide to us as part of your public profile on our website, where it may be reviewed by interested companies. It is your responsibility to ensure that the information you provide cannot be used to determine your identity. While our terms prohibit interested companies from attempting to identify the identity of a candidate based on his or her public profile, we are ultimately not responsible for the conduct of our users.

Reveal Requests—which provide a mechanism for interested companies to reach out to anonymized candidates—will provide identity information for a candidate only when the candidate has explicitly given consent for that request to be revealed, or given explicit consent for the profile to be revealed to any requestor.

We May Disclose Your Information If Required by Law

Other than to our employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Limbo discloses potentially personally identifying and personally identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request.

Your Information May Be Disclosed By Us In An Emergency or to Keep our Services Running

We may disclose your information in certain emergency circumstances: we may also disclose your information when we believe it's necessary to prevent imminent and serious bodily harm to a person; to address fraud, security, or spam; or to protect our rights or property.

We Never Sell Your Private Information to Third Parties Without Explicit Consent

This means that we will only share your personal data with your consent, and after letting you know what information will be shared and with whom, unless it is otherwise permitted in this policy.

We May Contact You Occasionally

If you are a registered user of Limbo and have supplied your email address, Limbo may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what's going on with Limbo and our products.

Limbo takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.


A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor's computer, and that the visitor's browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. Limbo uses cookies to help Limbo identify and track visitors, their usage of Limbo website, and their website access preferences. Limbo visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using Limbo's websites, with the drawback that certain features of Limbo's websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Limbo utilizes third-party services like Google Analytics to help analyze how our site is used. These services, including Google Analytics, also use cookies to collect information about visitors to our site (including IP addresses) in an anonymous form that does not include personal information. We make reasonable efforts to reduce the amount of user information necessary when using these services - for example by enabling IP Masking in Google Analytics.

Business Transfers

If Limbo, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the event that Limbo goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Limbo may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy. We will make reasonable efforts to inform users of an acquisition or transfer (for example, by posting on our blog) before it occurs so that they may alter or deactivate their information in such a scenario if they desire.

Ways to Control Display and Use of Your Information

You can always opt not to disclose information, but then you may be unable to use certain features on Limbo. By visiting your Settings, you can correct, amend, add or delete personal information on Limbo. As a candidate, you may also remove Profiles from public view or correct, amend, add or delete information by editing them in the Profiles section of your dashboard.

If you do not wish to receive email from us, please follow the instructions contained in the unwanted email message. However, please note that you will continue to receive all system e-mails (e.g. those regarding forgotten user passwords or important profile activity) and legal notices (e.g. updates to our policies) from us.

Data Protection

If you are located in certain countries, including those that fall under the scope of the European General Data Protection Regulation (AKA the “GDPR”), data protection laws give you rights with respect to your personal data, subject to any exemptions provided by the law, including the rights to:

You can usually access, correct, or delete your personal data using your account settings and tools that we offer, but if you aren’t able to do that, or you would like to contact us about one of the other rights, please contact us at

EU individuals also have the right to make a complaint to a government supervisory authority.

Privacy Policy Changes

Limbo may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in Limbo's sole discretion. Limbo encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. We will make reasonable efforts to inform users of substantive changes to our Privacy Policy (for example, by posting on our blog). Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
