This Notice sets out the privacy practices of Zeitbyte, LLC (“Zeitcaster“) for its website (“Site“) and mobile application (“App“) (the Site, together with the App, are the “Platform.”)
The words “user,” “you” and “your” mean users of the Site or App, and the words “we,” “our” and “us” mean Zeitcaster.
This Notice explains the information that we gather about you while you use the Platform, and the ways in which we use and share that information. This Notice does not apply to information we collect offline or through other means (for example, at a live event).
Currently, we do not serve advertisements via the Platform, nor do we share your information with third parties to serve you targeted advertising. We may, in the future, offer you the option for an ad-free Platform via a subscription-based service for a fee, or a free version that does serve ads.
1) What We Collect
We collect information through the Platform. Some information you may provide to us voluntarily, while other information we gather through various means. We will retain that information for so long as you have an account or we have a legal or business purpose for it. Your personal information may be collected, processed and stored on servers in the United States and in other countries. The following explains what we collect and how we collect it.
1.1) Information You Voluntarily Provide
You may provide us with information in order to use, or participate in, certain features of the Platform, such as registering for an account.
Account. If you register for an account, you will need to provide certain information, such as your first and last name, password and e-mail address. You may log into your account to access and edit certain information associated with your account, such as your contact information.
Other information. You may have the opportunity to provide information at other areas of the Platform. These include, for example:
- Communications with us. If you provide feedback through a form or contact us via e-mail, we will collect your name and e-mail address, as well as any other content or information you provide.
- Surveys, promotions, etc. We collect information you provide by participating in surveys, promotions or other solicitations.
Financial information. We do not collect financial information. If you make a purchase from the Platform, such as to subscribe for an account, any financial information you provide is collected by a third party payment processor, such as via Square Inc. or the Apple Inc. App Store for iOS devices, and may be governed by their privacy notice.
Children. The Platform is not directed to children under the age of 13. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13, nor do we knowingly distribute such information to third parties.
Terminating Your Account. You may terminate your account by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org. We may retain the information collected prior to termination for archival and/or legal purposes.
1.2) Information We Gather
When you access the App using your mobile device, we collect your operating system and version, and the features of the App you use.
Location Information. We collect location data when you use the Site that is provided by your ISP and third parties, such as your ZIP code, city and state. When you access the App using your mobile device, we collect the location data (such as your current latitude/longitude coordinates) that is provided by your device (if you enable that feature on your device).
You may adjust the settings on most devices to allow the Site or App to gather, or to disable it from gathering, location positioning data. Certain features, such as an event locator, may not work effectively if you disable location positioning data.
Do Not Track. Do not track is a voluntary program among Internet advertisers that is intended to give users the ability to opt-out of interest-based advertising. There are a few ways in which your computer may transmit a “do not track” signal to certain websites and online services you visit, and currently no standard has been established. We do not respond to do not track signals, and the settings in your browser will have no effect on the Site.
2) How We Use Information
Platform operation. We use the information we collect to operate, maintain and improve the Platform and our products and services, such as to respond to comments and questions and provide customer service; identify you as a user in our system or to protect the Platform, customers or other individuals; facilitate the creation of and secure any accounts you created on our Platform; provide and deliver the products and services you request; communicate about promotions, upcoming events, and other products and services offered by us and/or by third parties; send information including confirmations, invoices, updates, security alerts and support and administrative messages; to help understand your interests and provide you with better service; protect, investigate and deter against fraudulent, unauthorized or illegal activity; and/or for other purposes in operating the Platform.
Location Information. We may use the location information gathered to generate reports, such as the geographic areas that use the Platform most. We may also use this information to send you news about local events, such as promotions from local organizations.
3) How We Share Information
We share your information with others as follows.
Your Transactions. We may share your information to fulfill the purpose for which you provide it, such as to subscribe to an account, or for any other purpose disclosed by us when you provide the information.
Promotions. If we sponsor surveys, promotions or other solicitations for third parties, we may share the information you provide with those third parties.
Social Media. We may share certain data, such as your telephone or e-mail contact information, with social media outlets, like Facebook and Instagram, in connection with our agreement to share such information with them.
Location data. We may share location data collected from your ISP, third parties, the Site and/or the App in aggregated form with third parties.
Third Party Service Providers. We may share your information with third party service providers that assist us in operating the Platform, for and on our behalf, such as a hosting company or e-mail provider. They are instructed to use the information only to assist us in operating the Platform. We may also share with third parties your communications with us, such as sharing your feedback with our vendors to improve the Platform.
We may also share with third parties de-identified segment information, which is information that does not identify you personally, but allows others to know more generally, and the consumers who are using, the Platform.
Required by law or to protect interests. We may disclose your information to (i) comply with laws, rules, regulations, legal processes and governmental requests; (ii) enforce this Notice, including investigation of potential violations hereof and thereof; (iii) detect, prevent or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues (such as for fraud protection and spam/malware prevention); (iv) respond to user support requests; and/or (v) protect our rights or property or the rights, property and safety of our companies, partners, contractors, customers, users and the public (such as to report suspected illegal activity to law enforcement).
Corporate activity. If we sell assets (or the assets of a division or subsidiary) to another entity or if we are acquired by or merged with another entity, we may share with such entity information about users of the Platform that is related to that part of our business that is sold to or acquired by or merged with the other entity.
4) Information Security
We endeavor to protect the security of the information collected through the Platform and implement generally accepted standards of information technology security designed to protect information from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction. It is not possible, however, to guarantee the security or integrity of information disclosed online due to, among other things, technological limitations and the fact that no data accessible through or transmitted via the Internet is completely secure.
Links to Other Sites
The Platform may have links to third party websites, services and applications (collectively, “Third Party Sites“). When you click on such a link, you will leave the Platform and be directed to the Third Party Site and when you leave the Platform, you and are no longer subject to the terms of this Notice. This Notice does not apply to Third Party Sites, and we do not review or endorse, and are not responsible for, any Third Party Sites, the content therein, or their privacy practices.
5) Non-U.S. Residents
Residents of other countries outside the U.S., such as the European Union, may have other rights. While you may be able to setup an account as a user outside the U.S., we make no assurances or representations of any kind that the Platform is suitable for use in the country in which you reside.
By accessing the Platform, establishing an account or making a purchase, you consent to the processing of your personal information as provided in this Notice. You may withdraw that consent by contacting us at email@example.com . You are required to provide certain personal information in order to open and maintain an account. Your failure to provide such information may preclude you from establishing an account or may subject your account to termination.
If at any point you believe the personal information we process about you is incorrect, you may access your account and modify it there, or otherwise request to see the information and to have it corrected or deleted by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you wish to object to or raise a complaint on how we have handled your personal information, you may contact our Data Protection Officer who will investigate the matter. You may also be able to have your personal information transferred by contacting us at email@example.com.
If you are not satisfied with our response or believe we are processing your personal information not in accordance with law, you may contact the data protection authority in your jurisdiction.
The data controller for personal information collected pursuant to this Notice is Gary Kahn.
