1. INFORMATION COLLECTED AND MANNER OF COLLECTION

The below section talks about  data we may collect, receive and use:

User ID, notification tokens and passwords

When you first install the App, we generate a random user ID and password to identify your device. Passwords can be reset by the app user. The user ID and password allows us to detect when your device is in proximity to other devices that have installed the App. We also generate a notification token that is unique to your copy of the App, which we use to provide notifications. We do not link the user ID, password, or notification token to other information that could specifically identify you or your device, such as your name or device ID (i.e., the Identity for Advertisers on Apple devices or Google Play Services ID on Android devices).

Microphone and Audio Signals

The App demonstrated use of “data over sound” technology for various use case App . This technology requires the App to have access to and open your device’s microphone to decode data. We focus on ultrasonic frequencies when we process the microphone signals. We do not collect audio recordings of voice conversations through the microphone. The frequency and power range of ultrasonic is in a way that it does not have any adverse effects on the health of an individual, kid or animal.

Device Information

We collect information from your device, such as your device make and model, OS version, language preference, and information about Bluetooth and ultrasonic signals, in order for the Services to function and to troubleshoot, analyse and improve the services.

Contact Information

The App creates an alias ID and maintains it on your device at all times. This alias ID does not personally identify you and is different from your user ID. Alias IDs are periodically refreshed. The App on your device performs vicinity scans to sense nearby devices running the App (a “Contact”). When a Contact is located, the App exchanges the alias IDs of your device and the Contact’s device. 

The App uses the GPS functions of your device or collects your precise or coarse geographic location using coordinates from those GPS functions. We take device GPS location periodically to make sure to automate vicinity scan according to an app user’s working location and optimize battery performance of your device. We link alias IDs and actual user IDs and store such information on our servers. This information enables us to provide and improve the App and Services functionality, such as providing you notifications about a Contact.

App usage Information

We may collect information about how and when you use the App and features within the App, in order to analyze and improve our Services.
