Introduction/Scope: All users of US Applications in the United States.
When you download and use our US App, you will be asked to give permission for Location – based Services. We automatically collect certain information connected to your Wi-Fi enabled device:
Information we collect when you join the Wi-Fi:
If your phone or other Internet-connected device is equipped with Global Positioning System (GPS), we may obtain, access, or use such GPS information for the provision of our Services. We collect your geolocation data from your device only after you explicitly give your permission for us to do this through the prompts appearing in the App.
Information we collect about your Location:
CloseComms may make interactive features such as games available through the App, which may include public leaderboards. To be added to such leaderboard with your game score, you may choose to go public and provide us with information such as a pseudonym, and online identifier, or your name. Your public information includes said pseudonym or name and metadata provided with it. CloseComms may disseminate this information, meaning it will be visible to other users. When you share information or content like your pseudonym or name, you should think carefully about what you are making public.
CloseComms’ website can be found at https://closecomms.com (“Website”). If you come to our Website, we use Google Analytics to aid us in providing you with information and in continuing to improve upon the provision and maintenance of such Services.
You can, optionally, enjoy additional benefits in the App by optionally signing-in via social media platform integrations. If you choose to do so, we collect the following additional information according to the social media platform you choose to sign-in with:
You can withdraw your consent for sharing this information at any time by signing-out of the App. We never post or interact with your social media account.
We will retain your information for as long as necessary to provide you with Services. We will also retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements. We may also retain and use your information to make promotional offers to you as described, unless you have opted out of receiving such communications.
Data is stored on servers in accordance with local regulations. All personally identifiable information is deleted from our servers after 13 months. The data that we collect from you may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the USA. It may also be processed by staff operating outside the USA who work for us or for one of our suppliers.
Our US Application and Services, as well as our Website, are not designed to attract individuals under the age of 13. In accordance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), we do not collect or store any personal information, even in aggregate, about children under the age of 13. If we discover we have received any information from a child under the age of 13 in violation of this policy, we will delete that information immediately. If you believe that CloseComms has any information from or about anyone under the age of 13, please contact us at the contact points specified below.
We do not locate our end users using beacons. Beacons are small devices that enable technology providers to pinpoint devices within a narrow range, periodically transmitting small amounts of data within a short distance and are often used for indoor location technology.
We will use your information
If you would like to opt out, please see below.
Your information is aggregated and shared with our Business Partners. We do not provide any personally identifiable information to any other third parties for any reason, except as outlined below in B.
We do so to provide insights about customer behaviors based on the collection of GPS and Wi-Fi location. Your information is analyzed and processed to create anonymous aggregate reports before sharing. For example, reports are created to detail how many people visited a store, and the gender percentage, if such information is available. This information is used to improve the experience of the Services.
In the event that we are involved in a bankruptcy, merger, acquisition, reorganization or sale of assets, your information may be sold or transferred as part of that transaction.
With regard to geolocation, you may at any time opt out from further allowing CloseComms to access location data by adjusting your permissions in your mobile device. With regard to push notifications, you may at any time opt out from further allowing Candy Lab to send you push notifications by adjusting your permissions in your mobile device.
You may stop using the Service at any time by discontinuing the App and uninstalling it.
Although we do our best to honor the privacy preferences of our visitors, we are not able to respond to Do Not Track signals from your browser at this time.

In addition to browser controls, many mobile devices have a separate setting to limit ad tracking.
We maintain safeguards designed to protect the information that we collect about you against accidental or unauthorized access or disclosure. However, protecting your information is a shared responsibility. We protect your personal information according to industry standard.
