Privacy Policy

Protecting your privacy is really important to us. We only use your information where we have a legal basis to do so. This section provides the terms of our Privacy Policy. Our Privacy Policy covers our use of any information that can or could be used to identify you ("Personal Data"). It does not cover information that cannot be used to identify you ("Anonymous Data"). This section describes: (i) the types of personal information collected from you and/or your children; (ii) how the personal information is collected — directly from you and/or your child; how the personal information will be used); and whether we disclose personal information collected from you and/or your child to third parties.

When you sign up for our Services you give us Personal Data voluntarily by providing it to us, for example when you sign up for an account. We collect and use that information in order to authenticate you when you register an account and use the Services, to make sure you are eligible and able to receive the Services, and so that you receive the correct version of the Services. That information includes the username you choose to use on our Services, and internal account IDs that we assign to your account. The Personal Data we collect also depends on which third party accounts you choose to use, their privacy policy, and what your privacy settings with those services allow us to see when you use their services to access our Services. If you choose to link your Google account to the Services, we will collect your Google email address and an authentication token provided by Google. If you choose to link your Facebook account to the Services, we will collect a unique user ID provided by Facebook and, if permitted by you, your Facebook registered email address. Depending on the particular Service you sign up for, we may support other third party single sign-on services and collect additional Personal Data from them.

We collect and use your device location information as you use our Services (and, if you elect to turn on background location tracking for our Services, while you are not directly interacting with the Services), including how you move around and events that occur during use of the App. Our Services include location based services whose core feature is to provide an App experience tied to your real world location, so we need to know where you are to operate the App for you, and to plan the location of App resources. We identify your location using a variety of technologies, including GPS, the WiFi points you are accessing the Service through and mobile/cell tower triangulation. We also use the information above to show App sponsored locations that are in your vicinity as part of the App experience. We have an interest in using your Personal Data as follows: using your IP address, browser type, operating system, the web page you were visiting before accessing our Services, the pages of our Services which you browsed or the features you used, and the time spent on those pages or features, the links on our Services that you click on, device and advertising identifiers, as well as actions you take in the App, your in-App user settings and preferences and your in-app purchases to understand who is using our Services and how; using your contact information, namely your email address in order to communicate with you to provide technical and customer support; using your email address and device information in order to share updates and news about the Services with you either within the App or by email. You can unsubscribe from these at any time in your device settings or in-app settings; to provide social features within our App so you can interact with other users of the App, including storing your communications with those users, find your friends and be found by them, and share your App experience and achievements with your friends; and to organize and run live events based on or featuring our App. Note that when you participate in live events your App actions and achievements, App username and your avatar, team, and other components of your App profile will be visible to other event participants and to the public (for example on leaderboards displayed at the event and online).

We will only use your Personal Data to do the following if we have your consent: use your device’s health app (Apple HealthKit if you use an Apple device, or Google Fit if you use an Android device) to collect your fitness activity data (we read and/or write your fitness activity data to your device’s health app to operate background activity tracking and to ensure you get "credit" in your device’s health app for all of the walking you do while using the App); import from your linked Facebook account the list of your friends who also use the App and enabled Facebook User Friends; and send you marketing materials by email or via in-app notifications. You can unsubscribe from these at any time in your device settings or in-app settings.

We also rely on your consent where we use cookies or similar technologies. Insofar as cookies collect Personal Data, we will process it only based on your explicit consent, in anonymized form, or under a pseudonym. While you may disable the usage of cookies through your browser settings, Social Bee does not respond to a "Do Not Track" signal in the HTTP header from your browser or mobile application due to the lack of industry standard on how to interpret that signal.

We will not share any Personal Data that we have collected from or regarding you except as described below:
We engage third party service providers to work with us to administer and provide the Services. As part of that they will process your Personal Data on our behalf. These third party service providers have access to your Personal Data only for the purpose of performing services on our behalf, in compliance with this Privacy Policy, and we make sure each one is contractually obliged not to disclose or use your Personal Data for any other purpose. Some third party service providers may also collect information directly from you (for example, a payment processor may request your billing and financial information) as a Third Party Service in accordance with their own privacy policy. Such third party service provider does not share your financial information, like credit card number, with Social Bee, but it may share limited information with us related to your purchase, like your zip or postal code.

When you use the Services we will share certain Personal Data with other users. This Personal Data includes your App profile (such as your username, your avatar, and your team), your App actions and achievements, the real-world location of App resources you interacted with when using the App, and your public App messages. We share Anonymous Data with third parties for industry and market analysis. We only share information about you to government or law enforcement officials or private parties when we reasonably believe necessary or appropriate: (a) to respond to claims, legal process (including subpoenas and warrants); (b) to protect our property, rights, and safety and the property, rights, and safety of a third party or the public in general; and (c) to investigate and stop any activity that we consider illegal, unethical, or legally actionable. If we are acquired by a third party as a result of a transaction such as a merger, acquisition, or asset sale or if our assets are acquired by a third party in the event we go out of business or enter bankruptcy, some or all of our assets, including your Personal Data, will be disclosed or transferred to a third party acquirer in connection with the transaction.

We won’t require a child to disclose more information than is reasonably necessary to participate in an activity. You can review your child’s personal information, you can ask us to delete it, and you can refuse to allow any further collection or use of your child’s information. You can agree to the collection and use of your child’s information, but still not allow disclosure to third parties unless that’s part of the service. To exercise any of rights you can email us with direction on the rights you want to exercise.

We have appropriate security measures in place to prevent your Personal Data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorized way, improperly altered or disclosed. We also limit access to your Personal Data to employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your Personal Data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality. We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected Personal Data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.

We keep your Personal Data for as long as we need to provide the Services to you and fulfil the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy. This is also the case for anyone that we share your information with and who carry out services on our behalf.

When we no longer need to use your Personal Data and there is no need for us to keep it to comply with our legal or regulatory obligations, we will either remove it from our systems or anonymize it so that it can no longer be associated with you. When removing Personal Data, we will take commercially reasonable and technically feasible measures to make said Personal Data irrecoverable or irreproducible. To exercise any of your privacy rights please contact our customer service team located on our website and/or our internet application.
