Privacy Policy for our Apps

This Privacy Policy outlines the practices of CityBeetles (the “Company”, ” we”, “us” or “our”) concerning the collection, use and disclosure of information pertaining to end users of our apps.

This Privacy Policy is a legally binding agreement between the Company and the Partner (the “Partner”). By accessing or using our Services, the Partner agrees to abide by and not derogate from the terms of this Privacy Policy, as amended from time to time, and consent to the collection and use of information in the manner set out in this Privacy Policy. We encourage our Partner to periodically review this Privacy Policy.

The definitions in the Terms of Service apply to this Privacy Policy unless stated otherwise. In addition to this policy, please review our Terms of Service, which is incorporated herein by reference, together with such other policies of which the Partner may be notified of by the Company from time to time.

1. What information we collect

We only need to collect minimal information for advertising purposes. We collect the following types of data:

1.1 Anonymous Information

The anonymous information the Company collects (i.e. information that does not enable identification of individual persons) includes technical information transmitted by the end user’s device, including the end user’s software specifications (e.g. browser type and version, operating system, version).

1.2 Personal Information

We only collect the Android Advertising Identifier, needed to display advertising by third parties. We do not collect any other personal information such as name, passwords.

1.2.1 Advertising Identifiers

When you are using our a mobile application that incorporates our Services, we may also automatically record your Android Advertising ID (if you are using an Android device) , for advertising or analytics purposes. The Google Advertising ID is an anonymous identifier, provided by Google Play services. If your device has an Advertising ID, we may collect and use it for advertising and user analytics purposes. If your device does not have Advertising ID, we may use other persistent identifiers. The information collected may be also stored on your device. Please see below how you can reset you mobile Advertising ID or opt-out of receiving targeted ads through your mobile Advertising IDs.

2. What is the Purpose of collecting the information?

We collect the information specified above in order to:

– enable the Company to further provide, develop, enhance, customize and improve the Services, based on the end users’ preferences, uses and interactions with the Services;

– detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues;

– to respond to claims that any content available through the Service violates rights of third-parties;

To resolve disputes and enforce our policies, including investigation of potential violations thereof, for the purpose of law enforcement or in accordance with any applicable law or regulation.

3. Mobile Device Opt-Out

You may opt out of receiving targeted ads on mobile devices using the Android operating system, by using platform level controls enabled through your device settings. You should consult your device settings and instructions provided by your device manufacturer. However, we provide the following information solely for informational purposes.

If you have an Apple device, you can opt out of targeted advertising by updating to iOS 6.0 or higher, and setting “Limit Ad Tracking” to “ON”. You can do this by clicking on Settings -> Privacy -> Advertising, and toggling “Limit Ad Tracking” to “ON”. This prevents apps that you use from using your Apple device’s Advertising Identifier to serve you targeted ads. In addition, or as an alternative, you may reset your device’s Advertising Identifier, which will result in your device being disassociated from ad targeting profiles based on the Advertising Identifier in effect prior to reset. You can do this by clicking on Settings -> Privacy -> Advertising -> Reset Advertising Identifier. Again, you should consult Apple’s support web pages and instructions for the most current applicable settings.

If you have an Android device, you can opt out of targeted advertising on your device. You can do this by clicking the menu icon to display the apps list, then find and select the Google Settings icon, then find and select “Ads” and check the box “Opt out of interest-based ads”. In addition, or as an alternative, you may reset your device’s Android advertising ID, which will result in your device being disassociated from ad targeting profiles based on the Android advertising ID in effect prior to reset. You can do this by clicking the menu icon to display the apps list, then find and select the Google Settings icon, then find and select “Ads” and selecting “Reset advertising ID”. Note that Android settings menus may vary among device manufacturers and these instructions may not be accurate for your device. You should consult Google’s settings and instructions for the most current settings information.

4. With whom we share information

We do not share Personal Information with third parties except as specifically consented by the end user pursuant to this Privacy Policy (for advertising purposes) or if required by applicable laws or court order.

Anonymous information may be shared with other third parties (ad networks, advertising companies, service providers, media) for the purpose of developing or delivering advertising.

5. Children’s information

The Services are not directed or intended for children under 13 years of age. We do not knowingly collect or solicit information from individuals under 13 years of age. If we later obtain actual knowledge that an end user is under 13 years of age, we will take steps to remove that end user’s information from our systems.

6. Storing and retaining the information

We do not store the information collected on any of our servers but collect and deliver it to third parties only for advertising purposes.

7. Security and confidentiality

We use industry standard information security tools and measures, as well as internal procedures and strict guidelines to prevent information misuse and data leakage. Our team accesses the information on a “need-to-know” basis and subject to confidentiality obligations.

While we strive to use commercially acceptable means and procedures to protect the information, which considerably reduce the risks of data misuse, we cannot guarantee that our systems will be absolutely safe. To notify the Company about any security vulnerability or potential data breach, please contact us at: citybeetles@gmail.com, and we will take the appropriate measures to address such incident, as deemed necessary.

8. Merger, sale or bankruptcy

In the event that the Company is acquired by or merged with a third party entity, or other corporate transaction, or in the event of bankruptcy or a comparable event, we reserve the right to transfer or assign information in connection with the foregoing events. In the event of the above, our affiliated companies or acquiring company will assume the rights and obligations as described in this Privacy Policy.

9. Updates or amendments to the Privacy Policy

We reserve the right to periodically amend or revise the Privacy Policy; material changes will be effective immediately upon such changes being presented on our Privacy Policy. The continued use of the Services, following notice of such amendments, constitutes acknowledgement and consent of such amendments to the Privacy Policy and agreement to be bound by the terms of such amendments. The last revision will be reflected in the “Last Updated” heading.
