Introduction

This Privacy Policy discloses the policies of www.bthere.is (the “App”, “Site” or collectively the “Services”) and its operator Bthere Holdings, LLC (collectively “we” or “us”) regarding the collection, use and disclosure of information you submit to us through the Site.

User Consent

By accessing or otherwise using the Services, you agree to the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy, which is incorporated into and forms a part of the Terms of Service. You expressly consent to the processing and use of your information as described herein.

Types of Information Collected

When you create an account, we may collect your personal information such as your account name, mobile phone number and a voluntarily-provided photo. You may be able to add one or more people’s account name to your account and if you do so, we will collect that person’s account name and phone number. When you allow us, we may obtain your contacts list contained in your phone or device.

We also collect your unique available geolocation information from your device as part of our Services. You will have the opportunity to alter the settings within the Services to control to whom and when your geolocation information is collected or made available.

When you voluntarily provide content to one more of your circles, we may collect such information.

Because families may want to include children under 17 in their circles, parents may add children to their circles. If they do, parents will be asked to confirm their permission with a consent form that must be returned via email before we will allow children under 17 to use the Services. If you have any questions or concerns about collection of information from children under 17 or believe we have done it without parental consent, please contact us at support@bthere.is.

If you do certain activities on other social media sites, we may collect information from those sites such as your profile information, profile picture, gender, user name, user ID associated with your social media account, age range, language, country, friends list, and any other information you permit the social network to share with third parties. The amount of data provided to us is dependent on your settings and the policies of those other sites.

When you use our Services, we may also collect information about your computer or device which may include IP address, browser information, referring/exit pages and URLs, click stream data and how you interact with links on the website, mobile app, or Service, domain names, landing pages, page views, cookie data that allows us to uniquely identify your browser, browsing behavior on our site, mobile device type, mobile device IDs or other persistent identifiers, and location data collected from your mobile device. This may be maintained as “Anonymous Data” that does not identify you or we may combine it with other available information that would allow us to identify you or your device. When using our Services with a mobile device, we may collect unique identification numbers associated with your device, your mobile service provider, device details such as type and OS.

We use technology to passively collect and store certain information about your use on the site such as what programs, applications, advertisements, services you used.

We may engage in remarketing to market our sites across the web. When a user visits our site, a cookie is dropped on the user. Users with this cookie may be targeted across advertising networks to receive relevant advertisements.

Use and Disclosure of Personal Information

We may use your Personal Information to provide you information related to your use of the Services. We may use your contact data to send you information about our products or services, to contact you when necessary, and in conjunction with your use of certain Services. We may use your demographic and geolocation data, to customize and tailor your experience on the Services and send your location data and to others you have requested through the Services. You have some control over what information about you is shared with others on the settings in the Services.

We also use Personal information to:

Make it easier to use the Services without having to reenter information repeatedly;

Track your location;

Provide custom content and content you have requested;

Allow the Service to find and invite friends on your contacts;

Evaluate the Services;

Allow the service to confirm information about others by checking your contacts; and

Collect analytical data about the users of our Services.

We share personal information with our business partners who assist us by performing core services (such as hosting, billing, fulfillment, or data storage and security) related to our operation of the Services. Those business partners shall be bound to uphold the same standards of security and confidentiality that we have promised to you in this Privacy Policy, and they will only use your contact data and other Personal Information to carry out their specific business obligations to us and to provide your requested medical care and services.

We share your information, including name, location and phone number with others whom you authorize us to provide such information. Please review your settings and take precautions with regard to which circles you join and share information.

We may share your personal information, including your location data, with third parties for marketing purposes.

We do not use Personal Information from accounts of children under 17 for marketing purposes or allow others to do so.

We also reserve the right to create Anonymous Information records from the Personal Information you provide by excluding information that we believe in good faith prevents it from being directly identified to a specific user such as your name. This would include any comments or feedback you provide us which becomes our property and we reserve the right to use any such material with your Personal Information redacted in perpetuity for any reason we deem appropriate including, but not limited to, marketing and or improvement of the Services, without royalties or compensation to you.

We may share some or all of your Personal Information with our affiliated companies that are under a common control, in which case, we will require them to honor this Privacy Policy. If we go through a business transition such as a merger, acquisition by another company, or sale of all or a portion of our assets, your Personal Information may be transferred. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur and are permitted by this Privacy Policy. The acquirer of any Personal Information through a business transfer will be subject to this Privacy Policy until revised by the acquirer pursuant to this Privacy Policy.

We reserve the right to disclose your Personal Information if we believe that such disclosure is necessary to (a) comply with relevant laws or to respond to subpoenas or warrants served on us; or (b) to protect and defend our rights or property, you, or third parties.  You consent to us sharing your Personal Information under the circumstances described herein.

Use and Disclosure of Anonymous Information

This Privacy Policy does not limit our use or disclosure of any Anonymous Information in any way, and we reserve the right to use and disclose Anonymous Information to our partners, advertisers and other third parties in our absolute discretion.

Location of Your Information

Your Personal Information may be processed and stored outside the United States of America where laws regarding processing of Personal Information may be less stringent than the laws in your country or state. Your Personal Information will not, however, be used or disclosed for purposes for which you have not given consent or which are not permitted under applicable law.

The Ability of Others to View Your Information

When you use the Services, certain information you post or provide within your circles on the Services may be collected and used by others within those circles and therefore could be shared publicly outside of the Circles, including people outside of the control of the Services. We have no obligations with respect to any information that you post within your circle that is shared by other users within your circles.

Third Party Sites and Advertising

The Site may contain links to other sites. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such other websites and this Privacy Policy does not apply to any other sites. We make no representation regarding the privacy practices of any other sites regardless of whether we advertise on those sites or provide a link to those sites from our Services.

Ability to Unsubscribe

Should you receive a promotional email from us, you may “opt-out” of receiving additional promotional email communications from us by following the unsubscribe instructions on the emails.  You may also contact us directly at support@bthere.is.  This applies to promotional communications and not administrative communications we feel are necessary to provide the Services.

Disclaimer of Guaranty of Security

We believe we have taken reasonable steps to protect your Personal Information. No one can fully guarantee or fully eliminate all risks associated with Personal Information and we make no such guarantees.

Revisions

This Privacy Policy is subject to occasional changes at our discretion. We will post any such changes to this page and may otherwise post other alerts on the Services or communicate such changes through email. If you disagree with any such changes, please cease using the Services. Continued use following the posting of any such changes indicates your acceptance of the changes.
