To create an account you need to provide data including your name, email address and/or mobile number, and a password. If you register for a premium Service, you will need to provide payment (e.g., credit card) and billing information. You create your LW4IP profile (a complete profile helps you get the most from our Services).
You have choices about the information on your profile, such as your education, work experience, skills, photo, preferred non profits, and city or area. Some Members may choose to share more information than others. You don’t have to provide additional information on your profile; however, profile information helps you to get more from our Services, including helping Hosts of events or meals determine whether or not you may be an appropriate attendee of the lunch or event. It’s your choice whether to include sensitive information on your profile. Information will be made public to other users. Please do not post or add personal data to your profile that you would not want to be publicly available. You give other data to us, such as by syncing your address book or calendar, as well as, data on locations of events or meals.

When you connect with other Members, you will be able to search each others’ connections in order to exchange meal or meeting opportunities. Your profile will be visible to other users of the application or website. If you are hosting a lunch that lunch will be designated private or public. Public lunches may be viewed by other users while private lunches will only be viewed by the host and those individuals that have been invited to the lunch. We will use data about you (such as your profile, profiles you have viewed or data provided through address book uploads or partner integrations) to help others find your profile, suggest connections for you and others (e.g. Members who share your contacts or job experiences) and enable you to invite others to become a Member and connect with you. You can also opt-in to allow us to use your precise location or proximity to others for certain tasks (e.g. to suggest other nearby Members for you to connect with, or notify your connections that you are at an event or meal). It is your choice whether to invite someone to our Services, send a meal or event request, or allow another Member to attend your lunch as a host.
