Information We Collect
There are three basic categories of information we collect:

 

  • Information you provide.

  • Information we get when you use our services.

  • Information we get from third parties.

 

Here’s a little more detail on each of these categories.

Information You Provide
When you interact with our ecosystem and use our services, we collect information that you provide to us. For example, most of our services require you to set up an account, so we need to collect a few important details about you, such as your name, username, email address, phone number. We may also ask you to provide us with some additional information that may be publicly visible on our services, such as user preferences.

Of course, you’ll also provide us whatever information you send through our services, such as your movies and shows recommendations, your watchlist and your seen list. Keep in mind that the users who view your recommendations, and any other content can always save that content or copy it outside the app. So, the same common sense that applies to the internet at large applies to Recobee as well: Don’t send messages or share content that you wouldn’t want someone to save or share.

When you contact customer support or communicate with us in any other way, we’ll collect whatever information you volunteer or that we need to resolve your question.

 

Information We Get When You Use Our Services
When you use our services, we collect information about which of those services you’ve used and how you’ve used them. We might know, for instance, that you watched a particular movie, sent a recommendation to a friend, asked for a recommendation from a friend etc. Here’s more explanation of the types of information we collect when you use our services:

 

  • Usage Information. We collect information about your activity through our services. For example, we may collect information about:

    • how you interact with our services, such as which movies and shows you are recommending, movies and shows you are adding to your watchlist, movies and shows you are sharing with your friends and followers, your comments and interactions.

  • Content Information. We collect content you create on our services, such as movies and shows’ review comments.

  • Device Information. We collect information from and about the devices you use. For example, we collect:

    • information about your hardware and software, such as the hardware model, operating system version, device memory, advertising identifiers, unique application identifiers, apps installed, unique device identifiers, browser type, language, battery level, and time zone;

    • information from device sensors, such as accelerometers, gyroscopes, compasses, microphones, and whether you have headphones connected; and

    • information about your wireless and mobile network connections, such as mobile phone number, service provider, IP address, and signal strength.

  • Device Phonebook. Because RecoBee is all about communicating with friends, we may—with your permission—collect information from your device’s phonebook. Information we collect from your device phone book is your contact's name, email addresses and phone numbers. We use this information to find friends and which helps us improve your experience and to give you better recommendations. Please note, we don’t store this information on our servers.

  • Information Collected by Cookies and Other Technologies. Like most online services and mobile applications, we may use cookies and other technologies, such as web beacons, web storage, and unique advertising identifiers, to collect information about your activity, browser, and device.

For example, we may use information collected on other websites to show you more relevant ads. Most web browsers are set to accept cookies by default. If you prefer, you can usually remove or reject browser cookies through the settings on your browser or device.

We may also share it with our current and future affiliated companies and business partners, and if we are involved in a merger, asset sale or other business reorganization, we may also share or transfer your personal and non-personal information to our successors-in-interest.

We may engage trusted third party service providers to perform functions and provide services to us, such as hosting and maintaining our servers and the app, database storage and management, e-mail management, storage marketing and customer service. We will likely share your personal information, and possibly some non-personal information, with these third parties to enable them to perform these services for us and for you.

We may share portions of our log file data, including IP addresses, for analytics purposes with third parties such as web analytics partners, application developers, and ad networks. If your IP address is shared, it may be used to estimate general location and other technographics such as connection speed, whether you have visited the app in a shared location, and typeof the device used to visit the app. They may aggregate information about our advertising and what you see on the app and then provide auditing, research and reporting for us and our advertisers.

How Do We Use Your Email Address?

By submitting your email address on this app, you agree to receive emails from us. You can cancel your participation in any of these email lists at any time by clicking on the opt-out link or other unsubscribe option that is included in the respective email.We only send emails to people who have authorized us to contact them, either directly, or through a third party. We do not send unsolicited commercial emails, because we hate spam as much as you do. By submitting your email address, you also agree to allow us to use your email address for customer audience targeting on sites like Facebook, where we display custom advertising to specific people who have opted-in to receive communications from us. Email addresses submitted only through the order processing page will be used for the sole purpose of sending you information and updates pertaining to your order. If, however, you have provided the same email to us through another method, we may use it for any of the purposes stated in this Policy. Note: If at any time you would like to unsubscribe from receiving future emails, we include unsubscribe instructions in each email.

How Long Do We Keep Your Information?

We keep your information only so long as we need it to provide RecoBee to you and fulfill the purposes described in this policy.This is also the case for anyone that we share your information with and who carries out services on our behalf. When we no longer need to use your information and there is no need for us to keep it to comply with our legal or regulatory obligations, we’ll either remove it from our systems or depersonalize it so that we can't identify you.

How Do We Protect Your Information?

We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information when you place an order or enter, submit, or access your personal information. We cannot, however, ensure or warrant the absolute security of any information you transmit to RecoBee or guarantee that your information on the Service may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by a breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards.

Could my information be transferred to other countries?

RecoBee is incorporated in India. Information collected via our website, through direct interactions with you, or from use of our help services may be transferred from time to time to our offices or personnel, or to third parties, located throughout the world, and may be viewed and hosted anywhere in the world, including countries that may not have laws of general applicability regulating the use and transfer of such data. To the fullest extent allowed by applicable law, by using any of the above, you voluntarily consent to the trans-border transfer and hosting of such information.

Is the information collected through the RecoBee Service secure?

We take precautions to protect the security of your information. We have physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to help safeguard, prevent unauthorized access, maintain data security, and correctly use your information. However, neither people nor security systems are foolproof, including encryption systems. In addition, people can commit intentional crimes,make mistakes or fail to follow policies. Therefore, while we use reasonable efforts to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. If applicable law imposes any non-disclaimable duty to protect your personal information, you agree that intentional misconduct will be the standards used to measure our compliance with that duty.

Can I update or correct my information?

You are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your unique password and account information at all times.

You should be aware that it is not technologically possible to remove each and every record of the information you have provided to us from our system.
