Grow Inclusion and Belonging at Work
Enable authentic connections between colleagues with similar interests and differences in personal identity to drive a culture of inclusion and belonging.
Inclusive organizations are 8x more likely to achieve better business outcomes.
Belonging and inclusion can seem like buzz words these days, but at their core, they are key factors in employee experience, performance, and retention.
A sense of belonging means that people can bring their full selves to work, without feeling like they’re a different person from who they are at home, and without fear of different treatment or punishment.
Organizations that foster belonging can have access to the full potential of ideas and creativity brought by each individual. It allows each person to voice their perspectives, disagree comfortably, provide more meaningful feedback, and build trust within the organization.
Inclusion is the achievement of a work environment in which all individuals are treated fairly and respectfully, have equal access to opportunities and resources, and can contribute fully to the organization’s success.
Inclusive organizations are also twice as likely to achieve better financial performance, 3x more likely to have better team performance, and 6x more likely to be innovative and agile.
Swirl can improve perceptions of belonging and inclusion at your organization by 11% in 3 months.*

How It Works

Authentic relationships require purposeful connection. Swirl's algorithm matches you to a different colleague every other week.
Commonalities + Differences
Swirl matches colleagues with common interests and differences in personal identity for constructive relationship building.

This Policy applies to our websites, services, products, and applications (each a “Service”) and explains the following:
What information we gather from you when you use the ServiceHow we may use and share this informationThe security approaches we use to protect your information
Information We Collect and Use
We collect only the minimum personal information necessary to operate, maintain and provide you the features and functionality of the Service, to analyze how the Service is used, diagnose service or technical problems, maintain security, personalize content, remember information to help you efficiently access your Account, monitor aggregate metrics such as total number of visitors, traffic, and demographic patterns, and track Content and users as necessary to comply with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) and other applicable laws. “Content” refers to information, messages, text and other data which is collected, stored, surfaced, and shared through the use of our Service.
Information You Provide: You provide us information about yourself, such as your name and e-mail address, if you register for an Account with the Service or by connecting with the Service via a third-party service, which includes “following,” “favoriting,” “becoming a fan,” adding the Swirl application, etc., on a third party website or network. We receive and store the information you input when registering for our Service, or which you otherwise provide to us in any other manner.
If you create an Account, we’ll collect certain information that can be used to identify you, such as your name, email address, postal address and phone number (“PII”). If you create an Account using your login credentials from a third-party single sign-on service (SSO Service), we’ll be able to access and collect your name, email address, and other PII that your privacy settings on the third-party service permit us to access. If you log into your Account with a third-party SSO Service we will receive a login validation token, but will not receive or store your single sign-on service password. We may also collect your gender, date of birth, and other information that is not considered PII because it cannot be used by itself to identify you.
Cookies; When you use the Service, we may send one or more “cookies” – a small data file – to your computer to uniquely identify your browser and let us help you log in faster and enhance your navigation through the Swirl site. A cookie may convey anonymous information about how you browse the Service to us. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive after you close your browser so that it can be used by your browser on subsequent visits to the Service. Persistent cookies can be removed by following your web browser’s directions. A session cookie is temporary and disappears after you close your browser. You can reset your web browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent; however, some features of the Service may not function properly if the ability to accept cookies is disabled.
Log Files: When you use the Service, our servers automatically record certain information sent by your web browser. These server logs may include information such as your web request, Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type, referring / exit pages and URLs, number of clicks and how you interact with links on the Service, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed, mobile carrier, and other such information.
Clear Gifs Information: When you use the Service, we may employ clear gifs (also known as web beacons) which are used to track the online usage patterns. In addition, we may also use clear gifs in HTML-based emails we send to our users to track which emails are opened by recipients. The information is used to enable more accurate reporting and make our Service better.
APIs: application programming interfaces (or APIs) are software components that enable our Services to communicate with third-party services. We may use APIs to enable our Services to communicate with and gather information from third-party services, such as SSO Services, used by you.
Do Not Track: If you enable or send a “do not track” signal or similar mechanism relating to the tracking of browsing activities, we do not have practices or protocols to honor or respond to such a request. However, we only collect the types of information otherwise described in this Policy.
Information Use: Any of the information we collect from you may be used to:
Personalize your experience (your information helps us to better respond to your individual needs)Improve our Services (we may use your information and feedback to improve our Services, including our products, bots, and website)Improve customer service (your information helps us to more effectively respond to your customer service requests and support needs)Process paymentsRun promotions, contests, surveys, or other featuresMarket products and services to you that we believe may be of interest to youSend you information you agreed to receive about topics we think will be of interest to youSend periodic emails with updates pertaining to our ServicesRespond to your inquiries, questions, and/or other requests
We may also use your Personal Information to create Anonymous Information records by excluding information that makes the information personally identifiable to you. We reserve the right to use Anonymous Information for any purpose.
How We Share Your Information
Your Use: Your Account is private to you, however, we will display certain personal information about you elsewhere on the Service. Any information you choose to provide should reflect how much you want others to know about you. Please consider carefully what information you disclose in your Account and your desired level of anonymity. You can review and revise your Account information at any time. We may also share or disclose your personal information with your consent, and also as otherwise described below.
Business Transfers: As we develop our business, we may buy or sell assets or business offerings. Customers, email, and visitor information is generally one of the transferred business assets in these types of transactions and we may transfer your personal information in these instances. We may also transfer or assign such information in the course of corporate divestitures, mergers, or dissolution. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to notify you of any change of ownership or control in which your personal information is transferred.
Compliance with Laws and Law Enforcement Requests; Protection of Swirl’s Rights: We may disclose your personal information if required to do so by law or subpoena or if we believe that it is reasonably necessary to comply with a law, regulation or legal request; to protect the safety of any person; to address fraud, security or technical issues; or to protect our rights or property.
NonPersonally Identifiable Information: We may disclose your non-private, aggregated, anonymized or otherwise non-personally identifiable information, such as anonymous usage data, platform types, etc., with interested third parties to help them understand the usage patterns for certain Swirl Services.
How We Protect Your Information
The security of your information is important to us. When you enter sensitive information (such as a credit card number) as part of our Service, we encrypt the transmission of that information using secure sockets layer technology (SSL).
We’ve also adopted commercially reasonable physical, managerial, and technical safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of your personal information.No method of electronic transmission or storage is 100% secure, however, and we cannot ensure or warrant the absolute security of any information you transmit or store in the Service.
Your Choices About Your Information
You may, of course, decline to submit personal information through the Service, in which case we may not be able to provide certain services to you. You may update or correct your Account information at any time by logging in to your Account. To delete your PII and cancel your Account, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll take steps to delete your information as soon as practicable, but some information may remain in archived/backup copies for our records or as otherwise required by law. If you have any other requests or questions related to our handling, use or sharing of your personal information, please contact us at email@example.com.
Swirl Blog & Community
Our Service offers publicly accessible community services including blogs, and forums. You should be aware that any information you provide in these areas may be read, collected, and used by others who access them. Your posts may remain even after you cancel your Account.
Our Service is not directed to persons under 13, and we do not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 13 or knowingly allow such persons to register with the Service. If we become aware that we have collected personal information from a child under age 13 without verification of parental consent, we take steps to remove that information. If you believe that we may have any information from or about a child under 13, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org

THIS LIMITATION OF LIABILITY SECTION APPLIES WHETHER THE ALLEGED LIABILITY IS BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT, NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY, OR ANY OTHER BASIS, EVEN IF SWIRL HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGE AND EVEN IF A REMEDY FAILS OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.
