Last Modified: Aug 30, 2017

BeaconsInSpace, Inc ("BeaconsInSpace ," "we"; or "us") is committed to protecting your privacy. 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.

BeaconsInSpace is a member of the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) and adheres to its code(s), as applicable. The NAI is an industry leader in privacy and consumer protection practices for online advertising. The NAI has created a compliance program that incorporates attestation reviews, a consumer complaint process, and annual reporting to help ensure that member companies keep their promises to you and abide by the NAI's Self-Regulatory Code of Conduct.

Capitalized terms that are not defined in this Privacy Policy have the meanings given them in the BeaconsInSpace Terms of Service.

1. End User Data

Our Service provides a technology that is installed in third-party mobile applications ("apps") belonging to our commercial customers ("Customers"), and which provides our Customers with real-time analytics as well as tools that can provide or enable the provision of, content, ads, offers or other marketing solutions tailored to user interests, based upon visits to participating retailers or other venues. When a Customer uses our Service, the Customer's app collects information from end users including IP addresses, location data and the data described at Section 2 (“What we collect from end users or their devices”) ("End User Data") that is shared with BeaconsInSpace.

2. What we collect from end users or their devices

If an end user’s smartphone has downloaded an application of one of our Customers, then when that end user carrying his or her smartphone enters a retail space where our Service is enabled, data will be collected about that visit. Specifically, our Customers' apps can collect information from an end user's device periodically throughout the day (using GPS), or any time the device programmed with the app comes within range of a BeaconsInSpace “beacon”. A “beacon” is a small Bluetooth-enabled device that may be placed in retail stores or other locations which emits a unique signal that our Customers' applications can detect. BeaconsInSpace collects 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, the service will stop receiving information on that user from that app, alone. Relying on this app-specific, or device-specific advertising ID (IDFA, ADID), we collect:

  • An app-specific identifier or device specific identifier that is used to identify a unique app user or device user which can be tied to a specific mobile device or Customer app;
  • All location meta data when a user is within range of a beacon, or when a periodic location coordinate (ie GPS) is taken, including location data (latitude/longitude coordinates including, street address, establishment name, touch point);
  • Times of end user location detection;
  • Device information, such as the device type, model and operating system version, device language, mobile carrier, device name, device processes, device battery state, device speed, and current IP address.

3. How data is shared

End users should consult the privacy policies of the apps which have enabled our technology to learn how our Customers share data collected through our app, if at all. If BeaconsInSpace itself shares or publicly discloses information (e.g., in marketing materials or in application development) that is derived from End User Data, such data will be aggregated or anonymized to reasonably avoid identification of a specific Customer, end user or individual. Any End User Data that we maintain or process we consider to be strictly confidential. We do not use or disclose End User Data except as authorized and required by our Customers and provided for in our agreements with our Customers. Each Customer will remain responsible for the privacy and security of the End User Data that it collects and processes and for compliance with applicable data protection laws that may apply to the collection, processing and disclosure of End User Data.

We may also share or transfer your personal information in the instances described below.

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

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 End User Privacy Statement.

For further information on your choices regarding your information, see "This is an opt-in only services" below.

4. How data is used

We may collect, analyze and use End User Data and data that is derived from the End User Data, for the purposes of:

(i) providing or improving our Services;

(ii) enabling us to assist retailers and other venues in better serving and understanding the end users at a summary level; and

(iii) facilitating or enabling the delivery of content, ads, offers or other marketing solutions that may be of interest to end users.

Information we collect will be deleted or made de-identified after 7 years from the date of collection.

5. This is an opt-in only service

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 End User Data; and (iii) notify end users about how their consent can be revoked.

If end users do not want BeaconsInSpace 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 (this will limit data collection from this app alone); or (b) opt-out of sharing your 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”.
