Locality ("us", "we", or "our") operates https://www.thelocalityapp.com (the "Site") and iPhone application Locality! (the "App"). This page informs you of our policies regarding the collection, use and disclosure of Personal Information we receive from users of the Site. We use your Personal Information only for providing and improving the Site. By using the Site or App, you agree to the collection and use of information in accordance with this policy.
Information Collection And Use
Like many other apps, we collect information that your app sends whenever you visit our App ("Log Data"). By using the App you agree to let us log data to provide a better user experience to you. This Log Data may include information such as your app version, the screens of our App that you visit, the time and date of your visit, the time spent on those pages and other statistics. In addition, we may use third party services such as Google Analytics that collect, monitor and analyze this. Logged data is sent infrequently and will not affect your phone’s performance or data plan and is purely used to create a better user experience and monitor analytics.
In some areas of the App we may request and use your location to find nearby events. This location is stored in our database in order to make our App scalable to view events by location. This information is only given by user consent and can be removed by editing the event. User location is also used in helping find nearby events and is not required to use the app. Once you have accepted our locations permission consent and apple’s location permission consent we may use your location in order to personal event information and searches.
The security of your Personal Information is important to us but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercial grade security standards to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. After that being said, our Google-power servers have secure encryption and all access requires authentication before changing or reading any data from Locality. Our server security is the highest importance to us and we strive to never have security breaches.
Third Party Services
Locality uses Google-powered servers which have access to collected data. We also use Algolia Instant Search for our search engine which stores information on events and users on Locality. The data used by third-parties like Google and Algolia do not further sell, move, or modify collected data without our consent. These third-party services are core components of our service and the data that is given to these third-parties is only to improve user experience in the App.
