Privacy policy

Your privacy is critically important to us. At LockyBot we have a few fundamental principles:

  • We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it.
  • We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
  • We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.
  • You can reach us at at any point to close your account and completely delete your data in our system.
  • If you have questions about deleting or correcting your personal data please contact our support team at

Data collected and processing

As much as possible, LockyBot operates within Slack without sending data back out to our servers. That said, we still need a few details to identify and provide relevant services.

That's it. We do not collect any names, emails, or any other information from your Slack team.

When you uninstall the LockyBot account, we retain the data for 90 days before deleting everything. This gives you a chance to resume the service at any time in that window.

If at any point you would like all the data to be deleted, you can write to us at and we process all requests without exception.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, LockyBot 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. LockyBot's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how LockyBot's visitors use its website. From time to time, LockyBot may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

LockyBot also collects potentially personally-identifying information that is collected by Gooogle Analytics. The analytics feature LockyBot has implemented is based on Display Advertising (e.g., Remarketing, Google Display Network Impression Reporting, the Doubleclick Campaign Manager integration, or Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting). Visitors can opt-out of Google Analytics for Display Advertising and customer Display Network ads using Ads Settings.

LockyBot will not facilitate the merging of personally-identifiable information with non-personally indentifiable information previously collected from Google Display Advertising features that is based on the DoubleClick cookie unless LockyBot has robust notice of, and the user's prior affirmative (i.e., opt-in) consent to, that merger. LockyBot also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. LockyBot only discloses logged in user IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.

At any time, visitors may choose to opt-out of Google Analytics tracking with the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on.

LockyBot uses the Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting feature to identify trends in the usage of its website which may be published in reports for internal use.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to LockyBot's websites choose to interact with LockyBot in ways that require LockyBot to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that LockyBot gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for an account at to provide their Slack authorization which in turn supplies us with your Email and Full name. Those who engage in transactions with LockyBot – by purchasing a monthly subscription to, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, LockyBot collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with LockyBot. LockyBot does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. Visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

LockyBot may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. LockyBot may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, LockyBot does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

LockyBot 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 LockyBot's behalf or to provide services available at LockyBot'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 LockyBot's websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. LockyBot will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, LockyBot discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when LockyBot believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of LockyBot, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a LockyBot website and have supplied your email address, LockyBot 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 LockyBot and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. LockyBot takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

LockyBot's visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using LockyBot's websites, with the drawback that certain features of LockyBot's websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

If LockyBot, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that LockyBot 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 LockyBot may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, LockyBot may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in LockyBot's sole discretion. LockyBot encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
