Welcome to BeeTheSwarm. By using the mobile app, website, or any BeeTheSwarm produced games (the “platform”) and services offered by BeeTheSwarm, (together with its parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, representatives, consultants, employees, officers, and directors — collectively, “BeeTheSwarm,”), you’re agreeing to the following Privacy Policy.

What We Collect

In order for you to create an account on the BeeTheSwarm platform and use our services, we need to collect and process some information. Depending on your use of the Services, that may include:

  • information (including but not limited to your name, email, telephone number, date of birth, and country of residence) that you provide by completing registration on BeeTheSwarm, including if you register as a user of the Services, subscribe to our newsletters, upload or submit any material through BeeTheSwarm, or request any information;

  • your login and password details, in connection with the account sign-in process;

  • details of any requests or transactions you make through the Services;

  • information about your activity on and interaction with BeeTheSwarm, such as your IP address and the type of device or browser you use;

  • communications you send to us (for example, when you ask for support, send us questions or comments, or report a problem); and

  • information that you submit to BeeTheSwarm in the form of comments, contributions to discussions, or messages to other users.

While you are under no obligation to provide any Personal Data, should you choose to withhold such information, we may not be able to provide you with some or all of the Services.  By voluntarily providing us with Personal Data, you are consenting to our use of it in accordance with this Privacy Policy. If you provide Personal Data to the Services, you acknowledge and agree that such Personal Data may be transferred from your current location to the offices and servers of BeeTheSwarm and the authorized third parties.

What’s Private

This data will not be publicly displayed or revealed to other users:

  • any campaign funding payment information you provide

  • your password details

  • your IP address

  • your phone number

  • communications you send to us (for example, when you ask for support, send us questions or comments, or report a problem)

We don’t give your personal information to any third-party services, except when it’s necessary to provide BeeTheSwarm’s Services.  When we share data with third-party services that support our delivery of the BeeTheSwarm Services, we require that they protect your personal information to the same standards we do.

We do reserve the right to disclose personal information when we believe that doing so is reasonably necessary to comply with the law or law enforcement, to prevent fraud or abuse, or to protect BeeTheSwarm’s legal rights.

What’s Shared Only with Creators

When you support a campaign, the campaign’s creator will know only your account name and the number of bees you have donated.

What’s Public

Whenever your account name appears on the BeeTheSwarm leaderboard, people can click your account name to see your profile. The profile is not searchable on BeeTheSwarm or via search engines like Google. Here are some of the things that will be publicly viewable on your profile:

  • the account name

  • account picture (if you choose to add)

  • campaign categories you've supported and percentages of total campaign support

  • current Level

  • current number of Bees

  • total number of Bees donated towards campaign

Please note that campaign creators will be able to see a list of users (profile names) who have donated to their campaign along with how many bees each user has donated.

Uses of Your Personal Information

We will use the personal information you provide to:

  • identify you when you sign in to your account;

  • enable us to provide you with the Services;

  • administer your account with us;

  • enable us to contact you regarding any question you make through the Services;

  • analyze the use of the Services and the people visiting to improve our content and Services; and

  • use for other purposes that we may disclose to you when we request your information.

We take securing your data and preserving your privacy very seriously. We never post anything to your Facebook, Twitter, or other third-party accounts without your permission. We do not and will not sell your data.

Social Networking Integrations

One of the features of BeeTheSwarm is the ability to log into various social networking services (like Facebook or Twitter) to share campaign posts. You acknowledge that if you choose to use this feature, your friends, followers, and subscribers on any Social Networking Services you have enabled will be able to view such activity. To take advantage of this feature, we will ask you to log into or grant us permission via the relevant Social Networking Service. When you log into the Services using your Social Networking Services account, we will collect relevant information necessary to enable the Services to access that Social Networking Service and your data contained within that Social Networking Service. As part of such integration, the Social Networking Service will provide us with access to certain information that you have provided to the Social Networking Service, and we will use, store, and disclose such information in accordance with this Privacy Policy. However, please remember that the manner in which Social Networking Services use, store, and disclose your information is governed by the policies of such third parties, and BeeTheSwarm shall have no liability or responsibility for the privacy practices or other actions of any Social Networking Services that may be enabled within the Services.

Email

We want to communicate with you only if you want to hear from us. We try to keep emails to a minimum and give you the ability to opt out of any marketing communications we send.

We will send you email relating to your campaign funding, should your campaign reach the funding milestone.

We may send you service-related announcements on the rare occasions when it is necessary to do so.

Mobile Services

BeeTheSwarm services include certain services that are available via a mobile device, including (i) the ability to upload content to the Services via a mobile device, (ii) the ability to browse the Platform and Services from a mobile device, and (iii) the ability to access certain features through an application downloaded and installed on a mobile device (collectively, the "Mobile Services"). To the extent you access the Services through a mobile device, your wireless service carrier's standard charges, data rates, and other fees may apply. In addition, downloading, installing, or using certain Mobile Services may be prohibited or restricted by your carrier, and not all Mobile Services may work with all carriers or devices. By using the Mobile Services, you agree that we may communicate with you regarding BeeTheSwarm by SMS, MMS, text message, or other electronic means to your mobile device and that certain information about your usage of the Mobile Services may be communicated to us. In the event you change or deactivate your mobile telephone number, you agree to promptly update your BeeTheSwarm account information to ensure that your messages are not sent to the person that acquires your old number.

Wrap-up

To modify or delete the personal information you have provided to us, please log in and update your profile. We may retain certain information as required by law or for necessary business purposes.

On request, we will give you a copy of all the personal information about you that we hold. This information is subject to a fee not exceeding the prescribed fee permitted by law.

People under 18 are not permitted to use BeeTheSwarm on their own, and so this privacy policy makes no provision for their use of BeeTheSwarm.

Information that you submit through the Services may be transferred to countries other than where you reside (for example, to our servers in the United States). We will protect all information we receive in accordance with this privacy policy.

The Services and our business may change from time to time. As a result, at times it may be necessary for BeeTheSwarm to make changes to this Privacy Policy. BeeTheSwarm reserves the right to update or modify this Privacy Policy at any time and from time to time. Any material changes will be preceded by a notice posted on the relevant Service(s). If you disagree with our revisions to the Privacy Policy, you may de-activate your account or discontinue the use of our Services. Please review this policy periodically, and especially before you provide any Personal Data. This Privacy Policy was last updated on the date indicated below. Your continued use of the Services after any changes or revisions to this Privacy Policy shall indicate your agreement with the terms of such revised Privacy Policy.
