Locality Privacy Policy

Last updated: 2/27/19

Introduction

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

While using our Site, we may ask you to provide us with certain personally identifiable information that can be used to contact or identify you. Personally identifiable information may include, but is not limited to your name, username, password, phone number, email address, profile images, and event information. We also collect non-personally identifiable information for debugging purposes and to improve user experience. We do not collect any data that is used in any advertisements at the time of this privacy policy. We do not sell any collected data to 3rd party companies for profit and your data is secured by Google-powered security. This entails logging secure data when user consent is authorized and the collection, sharing, and use of personal data to personalize user experience. Signing up to Locality is a record of consent given by you “the user” to let us securely collect information about you to enhance your app experience. In order to revoke your consent, Deleting your Locality account will erase all content you have ever created and all logged data will be erased which terminates this privacy policy with us.

Log Data

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.

Communications

We may use your Personal Information to contact you with newsletters, marketing or promotional materials and other information. At the time of this privacy policy, email will only be sent to change your password and verify your email. Phone numbers will only be used to show your contacts on Locality and to verify your phone number. In the future, we may send promotion emails or push notifications for user engagement purposes. All communication information that is personally identifiable is securely stored and never leaves our database / is sold to 3rd party companies.

Location

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.

Security

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.

Changes To This Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy is effective as of (2/27/19) and will remain in effect except with respect to any changes in its provisions in the future, which will be in effect immediately after being posted on this page. We reserve the right to update or change our Privacy Policy at any time and you should check this Privacy Policy periodically. Your continued use of the Service after we post any modifications to the Privacy Policy on this page will constitute your acknowledgment of the modifications and your consent to abide and be bound by the modified Privacy Policy. If we make any material changes to this Privacy Policy, we will notify you either through the email address you have provided us, or by placing a prominent notice on our website.
