We collect personal information from our website visitors in order to provide you with a personalized, useful and efficient experience. The categories of information we collect can include:

Information that you provide to us. We collect information that you provide to us when you set up an account with us, use our Service, or communicate with us. For example, we may request your personal information (e.g., name, postal address, email address and password, telephone number, and billing information) and your applicable business information when you register for an account or purchase our Service. We may also collect any communications that you exchange with us. We will combine this information with information about how you use the Service.

Information we receive from third-parties. When you connect our Service with services offered by third-parties, such as by "Liking" us on Facebook or following us on Twitter, or when you link our Service with other services, which may include your profile information, user name, user ID associated with your account, language, country, and any other information you permit such third-party to share with us and/or that you permit us to receive from such third-party. The data we receive is dependent upon your privacy settings with the third-party. You should always review, and if necessary, adjust your privacy settings on third-party websites and services before linking or connecting them to our website or Service.

We use this information to operate, maintain, and provide to you the features and functionality of the Service, as well as to communicate directly with you, such as to send you email messages about products and services that may be of interest to you. We may also send you Service-related emails or messages (e.g., account verification, billing confirmation, changes or updates to features of the Service, technical and security notices). Similarly, if you request information from us through an online contact form or if you email us, we collect the information you provide (e.g., name, telephone number, email address) so that we can respond to you. For more information about your communication preferences, see "Your Choices Regarding Your Information" below.

Information collected through technology. We automatically collect certain types of usage information when you visit our website or use our Service. When you visit the Service, we may send one or more cookies - a small text file containing a string of alphanumeric characters - to your computer that uniquely identifies your browser and lets us help you log in faster and enhance your navigation through the site. A cookie may also convey information to us about how you use the Service (e.g., the pages you view, the links you click, how frequently you access the Service, and other actions you take on the Service), and allow us to track your usage of the Service over time. We may collect log file information from your browser or mobile device each time you access the Service. Log file information may include anonymous information such as your web request, Internet Protocol ("IP") address, browser type, information about your mobile device, referring / exit pages and URLs, number of clicks and how you interact with links on the Service, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed, and other such information. We may employ clear gifs (also known as web beacons) which are used to anonymously track the online usage patterns. In addition, we may also use clear gifs in HTML-based emails to track which emails are opened and which links are clicked by recipients. The information allows for more accurate reporting and improvement of the Service. We may also collect analytics data, or use third-party analytics tools, to help us measure traffic and usage trends for the Service and to understand more about the demographics of our visitors. These tools collect information sent by your browser or mobile device, including the pages you visit, your use of third-party applications, and other information that assists us in analyzing and improving the Service. You may disable these cookies by changing the settings on your browser or mobile device, however, if the cookies are disabled, it may affect the functionality of our website or the Service. For further details about cookies, please see clause 4 (Choices Regarding Your Information) of this Privacy Policy below. When you access our Service by or through a mobile device, we may receive or collect and store unique identification numbers associated with your device or mobile applications (including, for example, a Unique ID for Advertisers ("IDFA"), Unique ID for Vendors ("IDFV"), Google Ad ID, or Windows Advertising ID), mobile carrier, device type, model and manufacturer, mobile device operating system brand and model, phone number, and, depending on your mobile device settings, your geographical location data, including GPS coordinates (e.g. latitude and/or longitude) or similar information regarding the location of your mobile device. You may disable the collection of this data using the settings on your mobile device, however, this will affect the functionality of the Service. We recommend that you do not sign up for the Service if you prefer that this data is not collected.

Information from other sources. We may obtain information from other sources, such as third-party information providers, or through mergers and acquisitions, and combine this with information previously collected. In these cases, our Privacy Policy governs the handling of the combined personal information.

2. How We Share Personal Information

We may share your personal information in the instances described below. For further information on your choices regarding your information, see "Your Choices Regarding Your Information."

º Provided we have received your consent, we may share your personal information with third-party service providers or business partners who help us deliver or improve our service, for example, providers who help us process payments, identify and send targeted advertising, send email or postal mail, provide back-office services, or measure site traffic. These providers will be given access to your personal information as is reasonably necessary to perform their function under reasonable confidentiality terms.

º We may aggregate, or strip information of personally identifying characteristics, and then share that aggregated or anonymized information with third-parties (including individual anonymized data).

º We may share or disclose your personal information if we determine, in our sole discretion, that we are required to do so under applicable law or regulatory requirements, or if we reasonably believe disclosure is necessary to prevent harm or financial loss, or in connection with preventing fraud or illegal activity, and/or to enforce our Terms of Use.

º We may share your personal information with corporate subsidiaries we own or control.

º We reserve the right to transfer any information we collect in the event we sell or transfer all or a portion of our business or assets (including any shares in the company) or any portion or combination of our products, services, businesses and/or assets. Should such a transaction occur (whether a divestiture, merger, acquisition, bankruptcy, dissolution, reorganization, liquidation, or similar transaction or proceeding), we will use reasonable efforts to ensure that any transferred information is treated in a manner consistent with this Privacy Policy.

3. Customer Data

Our Service provides a technology that is installed in third-party mobile applications ("apps") belonging to our Customers, and which provides our Customers with real-time analytics and tools to create a better experience for their end users. When a Customer uses our Service, the Customer's app may collect personally identifying information from end users including location data ("Customer Data") that is shared with BeaconsInSpace. We may collect, analyze and use Customer Data and data that is derived from the Customer Data, for the purposes of: (i) providing or improving our Services; (ii) enabling us to assist our Customers, the retailer and the venues (in which the beacons are located) in better serving and understanding the end users; and (iii) BeaconsInSpace providing directly, or sharing Customer Data with third parties so they can provide or enable the provision of, content, ads, offers or other marketing solutions that may be of interest to end users. As part of our Terms of Service, BeaconsInSpace requires that its Customers: (i) inform end users about our purposes for the collection of their data; (ii) receive consent from end users prior to the commencement of the processing of the Customer Data; and (iii) notify end users about how their consent can be revoked. If BeaconsInSpace shares or publicly discloses information (e.g., in marketing materials or in application development) that is derived from Customer Data, such data will be aggregated or anonymized to reasonably avoid identification of a specific Customer, end user or individual. Any Customer Data that we maintain or process we consider to be strictly confidential. We do not use or disclose Customer Data except as authorized and required by our Customers and provided for in our agreements with our Customers.

In this Section, we describe the type of data that is collected through our Customers' apps and shared with BeaconsInSpace. Apps that use BeaconsInSpace may use only some of the features and information that BeaconsInSpace can collect. Please note that this Privacy Policy applies only to the data collection and use practices of BeaconsInSpace's website and Service, and does not apply to Customer Data or to the data collection practices of our third party Customers that use our Service. It is always a good idea to carefully read the privacy policy of each mobile app you install and use on your mobile device to be sure you understand the app's data collection and use practices.

Data Collected through the Service. Through the course of providing our Service to our Customers, our Customers' apps will collect information from an end user's device any time the end user's app comes within range of a BeaconsInSpace beacon (a small device that uses Bluetooth technology that is utilized by BeaconsInSpace-enabled Customer apps and may be placed in retail stores or other Customer locations). BeaconsInSpace relies on an app-specific identifier or device specific identifier that is used to identify a unique app user or device user. This identifier is associated only with the specific Customer app and can be tied to a specific mobile device. If an end user deletes the Customer app from its device, this identifier will be deleted as well. Relying on this app-specific, or device-specific ID, we collect all meta data that is received by the beacon including location data (latitude/longitude coordinates including, street address, establishment name, touch point), times of end user contact with the beacon and the location of an end user’s device when it is near any of our beacons. We also collect device information, such as the device type, model and operating system version, and current IP address. We use this information to help our Customers better serve and understand their end users. We recommend that our Customers inform end users about how and what types of data may be collected and note that if they do not want the BeaconsInSpace beacon to identify their mobile device, they can: (a) delete the Customer app or adjust the in-app settings of the Customer app if the app makes that option available; or (b) delete the applicable mobile advertiser ID by limiting ad tracking on the device. For iOS, navigate to your Settings > Select Privacy > Select Advertising > Enable the “Limit Ad Tracking” setting. For Android, open your Google Settings app > Ads > Enable “Opt out of interest-based advertising”.

4. Your Choices Regarding Your Information

Email Communications. From time to time, we may send you emails regarding updates to our website, products or services, notices about our organization, or information about products/services we offer (or provided we have received your consent, promotional offers from third-parties) that we think may be of interest to you. If you wish to unsubscribe from such emails, simply click the "unsubscribe link" provided at the bottom of the email communication. Note that you cannot unsubscribe from certain Service-related email communications (e.g., account verification, billing confirmation, technical or legal notices).

Modifying Account Information. If you have an online account with us, you can modify your account information by contacting us at the email address provided below. Please note that BeaconsInSpace cannot modify or delete Customer Data except at the request of our Customer, or as permitted by our Terms of Service.

Online Advertising and Controlling Cookies. We may permit third-party online advertising networks to collect information about your use of our website over time so that they may play or display ads that may be relevant to your interests on our Service as well as on other websites or apps. Typically, the information we share is provided through cookies or similar tracking technologies. The only way to completely "opt out" of the collection of any information through cookies or other tracking technology is to actively manage the settings on your browser or mobile device. Please refer to your browser's or mobile device's technical information for instructions on how to delete and disable cookies, and other tracking/recording tools. (To learn more about cookies, clear gifs/web beacons and related technologies, you may wish to visit http://www.allaboutcookies.org and/or the Network Advertising Initiative's online resources, at http://www.networkadvertising.org). If you access our service on your mobile device, you may be able to control tracking technologies through settings.

5. Data Protection and Security

Storage and transfer: Your information may be stored and processed in the United States or any other country in which BeaconsInSpace or its subsidiaries, affiliates or service providers maintain facilities. If you are located in the European Union or other regions with laws governing data collection and use that may differ from U.S. law, please note that we may transfer information, including personal information, to a country and jurisdiction that does not have the same data protection laws as your jurisdiction, and you consent to the transfer of information to the U.S. or any other country in which we or our parent, subsidiaries, affiliates or service providers maintain facilities and the use and disclosure of information about you as described in this Privacy Policy.

Keeping information safe: BeaconsInSpace cares about the security of your information and uses commercially reasonable physical, technical and organizational measures designed to preserve the integrity and security of all information we collect and that we share with our service providers. However, no security system is impenetrable and we cannot guarantee the security of our systems 100%. In the event that any information under our control is compromised as a result of a breach of security, we will take reasonable steps to investigate the situation and to notify our Customers if the security, integrity or confidentiality of personal information has been compromised, in accordance with any applicable laws and regulations.

BeaconsInSpace's obligations with respect Customer Data are defined in our agreements with our customers, including our Terms of Service, and are not included in this Privacy Policy. Each customer will remain responsible for the privacy and security of the Customer Data that it collects and processes and for compliance with applicable data protection laws that may apply to the collection, processing and disclosure of Customer Data.
