Knock Labs, Inc. (“Knock”, “we”, “our” or “us”) provides a managed API and dashboard for sending in-app and out-of-app product notifications (collectively with this website, our “Services”).

This Privacy Policy describes Knock’s privacy practices with respect to the personal information of individuals who represent businesses to which we market and provide our Services, including the information we collect on this website, from third parties, from individuals who are our customers’ authorized users, and from other sources.
