Information We Collect and How We Use It
When you use Bessa App and or create an account, we need to collect certain information that can be used to identify you, such as your name, email address (“personally identifiable information” or “PII”). We may also collect information like your gender, date of birth and zip code. If you choose to create an Bessa App account via a third-party service such as Facebook, you may have to provide us with your username or user ID so that your identity can be authenticated. When the authentication is complete, we’ll be able to access certain information based on your permissions from the third-party service. We don’t receive or store passwords for any accounts on third-party services.
INFORMATION COLLECTED USING COOKIES
INFORMATION RELATED TO USE OF Bessa App
Our servers automatically record information about how a person uses Bessa App, including IP addresses, browser types, operating systems, pages or features of Bessa App that were used and time spent on them, search terms and other statistics. We use and analyze (and may engage third parties to analyze) this information to customize and improve Bessa App. We also use IP addresses to generate aggregate, non-identifying information about how Bessa App is used.
In some cases we collect and store information about where you are located, such as by converting your IP address into a rough geolocation. We may use location information to improve and personalize Bessa App.
Information We Share With Third Parties
We’ll only share your PII in the following cases:
- We use a third-party service provider that requires it, such as for payment processing, data storage, and hosting and servers.
- We need to disclose it as part of a business transaction. Information that we collect from our users, including PII, is considered to be a business asset. As a result, if we go out of business or enter bankruptcy or if we are acquired as a result of a transaction such as a merger, acquisition or asset sale, your PII may be disclosed or transferred to the third-party acquirer in connection with the transaction.
- We need to do so for legal reasons or to protect ourselves or others. We strongly believe in protecting you from having your privacy violated through abuse of legal systems, whether by individuals, entities or government, and in contesting claims that we believe to be invalid under applicable law. However, we reserve the right to disclose any information about you to government or law enforcement officials or private parties if we believe it is necessary to satisfy or comply with any applicable law, regulation or legal process; to respond to lawful requests; to protect the rights, property and safety of us or others; and to prevent or stop activity we consider to be illegal or unethical.
- You expressly ask us to do so.
We may share aggregated information and non-identifying information with third parties for industry analysis, demographic profiling and other similar purposes.
Modifying Your Information
To delete your PII and cancel your account, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll take steps to delete your information as soon as is practicable, but some information may remain in archived/backup copies for our records or as otherwise required by law.
Your PII may be transferred to, and maintained on, computers located outside of your state, province, country or other governmental jurisdiction. If you’re located outside the United States and choose to provide your PII to us, we may transfer your PII to the United States and process it there.
Our Policy Towards Children
Bessa App is not directed to children under 13 and we do not knowingly collect PII from children under 13. If we learn that we have collected PII of a child under 13, we will take steps to delete such information from our files as soon as is practicable.
