Privacy Policy

Last Modified: December 3, 2016

HaloBee is a fun way to interact with People, Places and Things in your Surroundings. It is a proximity based interaction platform. You can emit your profile, messages or images to the people around you and view their profiles when in proximity. You can keep a track of all the people, places and things you passed across and see interesting interactions come to life. Meet new people and digitalize your Physiacal World. When you use these services—and any others we at HaloBee Pvt. Ltd. roll out, whether in the HaloBee app or elsewhere—you’ll share some information with us. We get that that can affect your privacy. So we want to be upfront about the information we collect, how we use it, whom we share it with, and the choices we give you to control, access, and update your information. That’s why we’ve written this Privacy Policy. And it’s why we’ve tried to write it in a way that’s blissfully free of the legalese that often clouds these documents. Of course, if you still have questions about anything in our Privacy Policy, just contact us.

Information We Collect

There are three basic categories of information we collect:

Here’s a little more detail on each of these categories.

Information You Choose to Give Us

When you interact with our services, we collect the information that you choose to share with us. For example, most of our services require you to set up a basic HaloBee Profile called a "Halo", so we need to collect a few important details about you, such as: your name, a few words about you, an email address and a phone number. To make it easier for others to find you, we may also ask you to provide us with some additional information that will be publicly visible on our services, such as profile pictures, your message or "Buzz", or other useful identifying information. Of course, you’ll also provide us whatever information you send through the services, such as Buzz and Chats to other Halos. Keep in mind that the users you send Buzz, Chats, and any other content to can always save that content or copy it outside the app. So, the same common sense that applies to the Internet at large applies to HaloBee as well: Don’t send messages or share content that you wouldn’t want someone to save or share.

Information We Get When You Use Our Services

When you use our services, we collect information about which of those services you’ve used and how you’ve used them. We might know, for instance, that you passed by a particular place, saw a specific person for a certain period of time, and emitted a few Buzz to others. Here’s a fuller explanation of the types of information we collect when you use our services (to learn about how you can control some of this information, be sure to read the aptly titled Control over Your Information section below):

Information We Collect from Third Parties

We may collect information that other users provide about you when they use our services. For example, if another user allows us to collect information from their device phonebook—and you’re one of that user’s contacts—we may combine the information we collect from that user’s phonebook with other information we have collected about you. We may also obtain information from other companies that are owned or operated by us, or any other third-party sources, and combine that with the information we collect through our services.

How We Use Information

What do we do with the information we collect? The short answer is: Provide you with an amazing set of products and services that we relentlessly improve. Here are some of the ways we do that:

We may also store some information locally on your device. For example, we may store information as local cache so that you can open the app and view content faster.

How We Share Information

We may share information about you in the following ways:
