Haiti Beat respects the privacy of its users (“you”) and has developed this Privacy Policy to demonstrate its commitment to protecting your privacy. This Privacy Policy describes the information we collect, how that information may be used, with whom it may be shared, and your choices about such uses and disclosures. We encourage you to read this Privacy Policy carefully when using our application or services or transacting business with us. By using our application or other online services (our “Service”), you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Policy. If you have any questions about our privacy practices, please refer to the end of this Privacy Policy for information on how to contact us.

Information we collect about you in General.
We may collect identifiable information that would allow us to determine the actual identity of a specific living person. Sensitive Data includes comments, or content (e.g. photographs, video, profile, text captions) that you optionally provide that may reveal your ethnic origin, nationality, religion, and/or sexual orientation. By providing Sensitive Data to us, you consent to the collection, use, and disclosure of Sensitive Data as permitted by applicable privacy laws. We may also collect your geolocation information with your consent through our mobile application or other online services. By using the Service, you are authorizing us to gather, parse, and retain data related to the provision of the Service. When you provide personal information through our Service, the information may be sent to servers located in the United States and countries around the world.


Information you provide.
To register as a user with Haiti Beat, you will be asked for your email which will be linked to your account.  You will also be asked to allow Haiti Beat access to your gallery along with your location information from your device when you download or use our Service. The only identifying information we collect is your name, birthday, gender, and email address. You may also provide us photos/videos, personal descriptions, and information about your gender and preferences for recommendations, such as search distance, age-range, and gender. If you chat with other Haiti Beat users, you provide us the content of your chats, and if you contact us with customer service or other inquiries, you provide us with the content of that communication.

Information collected automatically.
We automatically collect information from your device when you visit our service. This information could include your IP address, device ID and type, and language, the operating system used by your device, access times, your mobile device’s geographic location while our application is actively running, and the referring website address.


Mobile device IDs.
If you're using our app, we use mobile device IDs (the unique identifier assigned to a device by the manufacturer), or Advertising IDs (for iOS 6 and later), instead of cookies, to recognize you. We do this to store your preferences and track your use of our app. Unlike cookies, device IDs cannot be deleted, but Advertising IDs can be reset in “Settings” on your iPhone.

With whom we share your information
Information Shared with Other Users. When you register as a user of Haiti Beat, your Haiti Beat profile will be viewable by other users of the Service. Other users will be able to view information you have provided to us directly, such as your photos, any additional photos you upload, your name, your age, the approximate number of miles away and location.

Personal information.
We do not share your personal information with others except as indicated in this Privacy Policy.

Other Situations.
We may disclose your information, including personal information: In response to a subpoena or similar investigative demand, a court order, or a request for cooperation from law enforcement or other government agency; to establish or exercise our legal rights; to defend against legal claims; or as otherwise required by law. In such cases, we may raise or waive any legal objection or right available to us. When we believe disclosure is appropriate in connection with efforts to investigate, prevent, or take other action regarding illegal activity, suspected fraud or other wrongdoing; to protect and defend the rights, property or safety of our company, our users, our employees, or others; to comply with applicable law or cooperate with law enforcement, or to enforce our Terms of use or other agreements or policies. Regarding a substantial corporate transaction, such as the sale of our business, a divestiture, merger, consolidation, or asset sale, or in the unlikely event of bankruptcy.

Third-party websites.
There are many places on our Service where you may click on a link to access other websites that do not operate under this Privacy Policy. For example, if you click on an advertisement on our Service, you may be taken to a website that we do not control. These third-party websites may independently solicit and collect information, including personal information from you.  We recommend that you consult the privacy statements of all third-party websites you visit by clicking on the “privacy” link typically located at the bottom of the web page you are visiting.


How you can access and correct your information.
If you have an Haiti Beat account, you can review and update your personal information within the Service by opening your account and going to settings. Applicable privacy laws may allow you the right to access and/or request the correction of errors or omissions in your personal information that is in our custody or under our control. Our Privacy Officer will assist you with the access request. This includes Identification of personal information under our custody or control; and information about how personal information under our control may be or has been used by us. We will respond to requests within the time allowed by all applicable privacy laws and will make every effort to respond as accurately and completely as possible. Any corrections made to personal information will be promptly sent to any organization to which it was disclosed. In certain exceptional circumstances, we may not be able to provide access to the certain personal information we hold. For security purposes, not all personal information is accessible and amendable by the Privacy Officer. If access or corrections cannot be provided, we will notify the individual requesting within 30 days, in writing, of the reasons for the refusal.

Your choices about collection and use of your information.
You can choose not to provide us with certain information, but that may result in you being unable to use certain features of our Service because such information may be required for you to register as a user and  purchase products or services. Our Service may also deliver notifications to your phone or mobile device. You can disable these notifications by going into “App Settings” on the app or by changing the settings on your mobile device.


How we protect your personal information.
We take security measures to help safeguard your personal information from unauthorized access and disclosure. However, no system can be completely secure. Therefore, although we take steps to secure your information, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your personal information, chats, or other communications will always remain secure. Users should also take care with how they handle and disclose their personal information and should avoid sending personal information through insecure email. Please refer to the Federal Trade Commission's website at http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/menus/consumer/data.shtm for information about how to protect yourself against identity theft. You agree that we may communicate with you electronically regarding security, privacy, and administrative issues, such as security breaches. We may post a notice on our Service if a security breach occurs. We may also send an email to you at the email address you have provided to us. You may have a legal right to receive this notice in writing. To receive free written notice of a security breach (or to withdraw your consent from receiving electronic notice), please notify us at privacy@haitibeat.com

Children's privacy.
Although our Service is a general audience Service, we restrict the use of our service to individuals age 16 and above. We do not knowingly collect, maintain, or use personal information from children under the age of 17.

No Rights of Third Parties.
This Privacy Policy does not create rights enforceable by third parties or require disclosure of any personal information relating to users of the website.

Changes to this Privacy Policy
We will occasionally update this Privacy Policy to reflect changes in the law, our data collection, and use practices, the features of our Service, or advances in technology. When we post changes to this Privacy Policy, we will revise the “last updated” date at the top of this Privacy Policy, which will be posted on the Services under “Settings” and also on www.haitibeat.com and you should regularly check for the most recent version, which is the version that applies. If we make any material changes to this Privacy Policy, we will notify you of the changes by reasonable means, which could include notifications through the Services or via email. Please review the changes carefully. Your continued use of the Services following the posting of changes to this policy will mean you consent to and accept those changes. If you do not consent to such changes you can delete your account by following the instructions under Settings.
