Bee's Privacy Policy

Last Modified: November 14, 2016

Bee is a fast and fun way to make money and change the world. Take photos of your favorite life moments. Endorse the products that make your life better, and give them the exposure they deserve. Get paid per like, and have your photos shown to new audiences across the world!

When you use these services—and any others we at Bee Technologies Inc. roll out, whether in the Bee app or elsewhere—you'll share some information with us. We get that that can affect your privacy. So we want to be upfront about the information we collect, how we use it, whom we share it with, and the choices we give you to control, access, and update your information.

That's why we've written this Privacy Policy. And it's why we've tried to write it in a way that's blissfully free of the legalese that often clouds these documents. Of course, if you still have questions about anything in our Privacy Policy, just contact us at customerservice@beeaweso.me.

To make this document easier to read, we sometimes use Bee instead of Bee Technologies Inc. and refer to our products and services as the "Service" or the "Services". You the user are referred to as "Creator" or "Creators", because you are artists and should be treated as such!

One final point before we dive in: We're happy to report that we participate in the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield, which you can read more about here.

Information We Collect

There are three basic categories of information we collect:

Here's a little more detail on each of these categories.

Information You Choose to Give Us

When you interact with our services, we collect the information that you choose to share with us. For example, most of our services require you to set up a basic Bee account, so we need to collect a few important details about you, such as: a unique username you'd like to go by, a password, an email address, a phone number, and your date of birth. To make it easier for others to find you, we may also ask you to provide us with some additional information that will be publicly visible on our services, such as profile pictures, a name, or other useful identifying information. Other services, such as commerce products or paid endorsement, may also require you to provide us with a debit/credit card number or related bank account/routing number and any associated account information.

Of course, you'll also provide us whatever information you send through the services, such as Buzzes (posts through the service)and Chats with other Creators . Keep in mind that content posted on Bee or any content created for a campaign can always be saved or copied outside the app. So, the same common sense that applies to the Internet at large applies to Bee as well: Don't send messages or share content that you wouldn't want someone to save or share.

It probably goes without saying, but we'll say it anyway: When you contact Bee Support or communicate with us in any other way, we'll collect whatever information you volunteer.

Information We Get When You Use Our Services

When you use our services, we collect information about which of those services you've used and how you've used them. We might know, for instance, that you looked at a specific campaign, saw a specific post for a certain period of time, and sent a few messages to friends. Here's a fuller explanation of the types of information we collect when you use our services:

Information We Collect from Third Parties

We may collect information that other Creators provide about you when they use our services. For example, if another Creator allows us to collect information from their device phonebook—and you're one of that Creator's contacts—we may combine the information we collect from that Creator's phonebook with other information we have collected about you. We may also obtain information from other companies that are owned or operated by us, or any other third-party sources, and combine that with the information we collect through our services.

How We Use Information

What do we do with the information we collect? The short answer is: Provide you with an amazing set of products and services that we relentlessly improve. Here are some of the ways we do that (but don't forget the specific uses described in this Privacy Policy):

We may also store some information locally on your device. For example, we may store information as local cache so that you can open the app and view content faster.

How We Share Information

We may share information about you in the following ways:

Information You Choose to Share with Third Parties

The services may also contain third-party links and search results, include third-party integrations, or offer a co-branded or third-party-branded service. By going to those links, using the third-party integration, or using a co-branded or third-party-branded service, you may be providing information (including personal information) directly to the third party, us, or both. You acknowledge and agree that we are not responsible for how those third parties collect or use your information. As always, we encourage you to review the privacy policies of every third-party website or service that you visit or use, including those third parties you interact with through our services.

How Long We Keep Your Content

This is a question of how long we store and process your information:

Control over Your Information

We want you to be in control of your information, so we provide you with the following tools.

Analytics and Advertising Services Provided by Others

We may let other companies use cookies, web beacons, and similar tracking technologies on the services. These companies may collect information about how you use the services and other websites and online services over time and across different services. This information may be used to, among other things, analyze and track data, determine the popularity of certain content, and better understand your online activity.

Creators Outside the United States

Although we welcome Creators from all over the world, keep in mind that no matter where you live or where you happen to use our services, your information may be shared within the Bee Technologies Inc. family of companies. This means that we may collect your personal information from, transfer it to, and store and process it in the United States and other countries outside of where you live.

Children

Our services are not intended for—and we don't direct them to—anyone under 18. And that's why we do not knowingly collect personal information from anyone under 18. In the event that we learn that we have collected personal information from someone under the age of 18 without parental consent, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that we might have any information from or about someone under 18, please contact us at customerservice@beeaweso.me.

Revisions to the Privacy Policy

We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time. But when we do, we'll let you know one way or another. Sometimes, we'll let you know by revising the date at the top of the Privacy Policy that's available on our website and mobile application. Other times, we may provide you with additional notice (such as adding a statement to our websites' homepages or providing you with an in-app notification).

How to Contact Us About A Deceased User

In the event of the death of a Creator, please contact us. We will usually conduct our communication via email; should we require any other information, we will contact you at the email address you have provided in your request.

Privacy Policy of Governing Social Media Site

Our Privacy Policy applies to Bee Technologies Inc., and the services we provide. When you use our Service to post to another social media site or application, you are bound by their privacy policy.
