Your Privacy Matters
At Structural, we value trust: the trust between co-workers, employees and employer, users and our company. Maintaining your trust extends to the decisions we make about how we gather and respect your personal information. We’ve crafted the policy below to be as clear and straightforward as possible. Our aim is for you—our users—to always feel informed and empowered with respect to your privacy on Structural.
Structural’s mission is to help employees realize their full potential by facilitating new professional connections, building relationships with your co-workers, and deepening engagement with your employer. Our registered users (“Users”) share their professional identities, engage with their network, exchange knowledge and professional insights. We believe that our services allow our Users to build and enhance meaningful relationships with co-workers.
Maintaining your trust is our top priority, so we adhere to the following principles to protect your privacy:
- We protect your personal information and will only provide it to third parties: (1) with your consent; (2) where it is necessary to carry out your instructions; (3) as reasonably necessary in order to provide our features and functionality to you; (4) when we reasonably believe it is required by law, subpoena or other legal process; or (5) as necessary to enforce our User Agreement or protect the rights, property, or safety of Structural, our Users, and the public.
- We have implemented appropriate security safeguards designed to protect your information in accordance with industry standards.
- What information we collect
1.1. Data Controllers
We collect your personal information in the following ways:
1.3. Profile Information
After you create an account, you may choose to provide additional information on your Structural profile, such as descriptions of your skills, professional experience, and educational background, and other information including content and polls. Providing additional information enables you to derive more benefit from our Services by helping you express your professional identity; find other professionals and information; and help your company better get to know you.
1.4. Other Services That Sync with Structural
We may make other tools available to sync information with our Services, and may also develop additional features that allow Users to use their account in conjunction with other third-party services.
1.5. Customer Service
1.6. Using the Structural Sites and Applications
We collect information when you use our websites, applications, or other Services. For example, we collect information when you perform a search, participate in polls, install one of our mobile applications, make a phone call or send a text message, as well as your usage information and the log data described in Section 1.7 of this policy, such as your IP address, will be associated by us with your account. Even if you’re not logged into a Service, we log information about devices used to access our Services, including IP address.
1.7. Log Files, IP Addresses, and Information About Your Computer and Mobile Device
We also receive the internet protocol (“IP”) address of your computer or the proxy server that you use to access the web, your computer operating system details, your type of web browser, your mobile device (including your mobile device identifier provided by your mobile device operating system), your mobile operating system (if you are accessing Structural using a mobile device), and the name of your ISP or your mobile carrier. We may also receive location data passed to us from third-party services or GPS-enabled devices that you have set up, which we use to show you local information on our mobile applications and for fraud prevention and security purposes. Most mobile devices allow you to prevent real time location data being sent to us, and of course we will honor your settings.
In the case of our Android apps, you will be provided notice of the types of data (e.g. location) that will be sent to us. If you choose to use our app after this notice, we process this data to enable registration or preview product features for you (e.g. jobs near you). If you choose not to become a User, we will delete this information.

We also customize your experience and the experiences of others on our Services. We try to show you content, such as news and presentations, that is relevant to you, your company, your industry, or your profession. We also use Users’ information and content for invitations and communications promoting our Services that are tailored to the recipient.
2.5. Sharing Information with Third Parties
Also, if you have opted to bind any of your Service accounts to your Twitter, Facebook or other similar account, you can easily share content from our Services to these third party services, in accordance with your settings (which you may change at any time) and respective policies of these third parties.
Polls may be conducted by Users of your company. It is up to you whether you provide this information. Your consent to use any personal information for the purposes set forth in the poll will be explicitly requested by the party conducting it.
You can search for Users, information about your company, and polls on our Services. We use personal information from our Services, including User profiles to inform and refine our search service.
If you share content via Announcements, you should be aware that any information you choose to disclose using these services can be read, collected, and used by other Users in your company. We are not responsible for the information you choose to submit. Your contributions are typically searchable on our Services and others may copy and use the information that you share.
2.9. Compliance with Legal Process and Other Disclosures
It is possible that we may need to disclose personal information, profile information, or information about your activities as a User when required by law, subpoena, or other legal process, whether in the United States or other jurisdictions, or if we have a good faith belief that disclosure is reasonably necessary to (1) investigate, prevent, or take action regarding suspected or actual illegal activities or to assist government enforcement agencies; (2) enforce the User Agreement, investigate and defend ourselves against any third-party claims or allegations, or protect the security or integrity of our Service; or (3) exercise or protect the rights, property, or safety of Structural, our Users, personnel, or others. We attempt to notify Users about legal demands for their personal information when appropriate in our judgment, unless prohibited by law or court order or when the request is an emergency. In light of our principles, we may dispute such demands when we believe, in our discretion, that the requests are overbroad, vague or lack proper authority, but do not commit to challenge every demand.
