Privacy Policy

To provide you with the benefits of the Locale® mobile application ("App"), we collect certain types of information from you. This privacy policy ("Privacy Policy") describes how we protect and handle the information that you provide and that we obtain through the App and our website, twofortyfouram.com ("Website"). Please read this Privacy Policy carefully. By installing and/or using any portion of the App or Website, you agree to the provisions of this Privacy Policy.

Although the remainder of this document is dedicated to the details of our privacy policy, highlights include:

  • We will not spam you.
  • We do not sell your information.
  • We do not transmit private information, such as your address book and calendar, off of your device.
  • We do not track your current location.
  • We collect the minimum amount of information necessary to provide and improve the App and related services.
  • We use commercially reasonable efforts to protect your information and keep it secure.

1. We Collect And Use Certain Information

We collect information relating to you and your use of the App and Website in order to provide services and features that are easy to use and responsive to your needs. We use the term "Consumer Information" to refer to any personally identifiable or anonymous information relating to you or your use of the App or Website. The following sections describe more specific categories of Consumer Information.

1.1 Contact Information

Contact Information is information that allows someone to identify or contact you, including, for example: your name, email address, city, and state.

In the event that you contact us, any information that you provide is used solely for the purpose of responding to your inquiry. We retain communications relating to customer support for statistical and reference purposes.

1.2 Usage Information

Usage Information is anonymous information in the aggregate, such as how many people are using the App per day, in what countries and languages the App is being used, on what devices and OS versions the App is being used, whether any errors occur, and what features are most popular.

We receive this type of information from third party service providers, like Google, Localytics, and FB Analytics. This Usage Information does not uniquely identify you. This Usage Information is used for the purpose of improving the App.

Usage Information also includes anonymous information about your computer hardware and software that is automatically collected when you access the Website. This information is used for the purpose of operating the Website, maintaining the quality of the Website, and providing general statistics regarding use of the Website.

We do not associate Usage Information with Contact Information.

1.3 Location Information

The App DOES NOT and CANNOT track a user's location. Location information is only used within the App, and only after the user configures a Location condition. When a Location condition is configured, the App may scan for Bluetooth devices, Wi-Fi access points, cell towers, GPS satellites, and other reference points to determine location. These scans may collect information such as an access point's MAC address (an alphanumeric code that is unique to that hardware device) and a cell tower's cell ID. The App may also identify the IP address of the device in order to estimate location.

The App may also allow users to elect to calibrate location data to improve accuracy. This user-calibrated location is only available for location-determination purposes to the user who entered the information.

2. How We Use Consumer Information

We use Consumer Information for a wide variety of purposes, including to enhance the App, to provide you with customer service and to make a wider range of features available to you. We also use your Consumer Information in anonymous, aggregate form to better understand how consumers use our App and Website, which features they use, and who is likely to be interested in using certain other features, and for various other business purposes. We will NOT sell your information for any purpose. For a more detailed explanation of how we use Consumer Information, please refer to Section 1, above.

3. Disclosure of Consumer Information to Third Parties

We may disclose anonymous Consumer Information in the aggregate, and analyses and reports derived from such information to third parties including our service providers, consumer and market research companies, and other organizations. We will not disclose your personally identifiable Consumer Information to any third party for any purpose.

3.1 Contractors and Third-Party Service Providers

We may use independent contractors to assist with our operations. Such contractors may include programmers, consultants, auditors, attorneys, accountants, potential purchasers of our business, and third parties whose services are necessary for us to provide the App or conduct legitimate business activities in connection with the App. Some of these contractors will have temporary access to our databases of Consumer Information. Their access to such information will be limited to specific tasks. For example, the App uses technology from Skyhook Wireless to provide more accurate location data. We require these contractors and third parties to agree to protect the confidentiality of your Consumer Information and to use it only as necessary to perform the services they are asked to perform. These contractors and third parties are responsible and liable if they misuse any Consumer Information.

3.2 Compliance with the Law; Protection of our App

We may be legally obligated to disclose Consumer Information to the government or third parties under certain circumstances, such as in response to a legal demand issued by a government entity, a subpoena issued in connection with a civil or criminal investigation or litigation, an order from a court or regulatory agency, or to comply with regulatory requirements. We may determine that, notwithstanding the provisions of this Privacy Policy, it is necessary or appropriate for us to disclose your Contact Information and personally identifiable Usage Information to comply with the Electronic Communications Privacy Act, the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, and any other relevant laws or regulations, to enforce our applicable End User License Agreement or any other of our policies, to exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims, to protect the integrity of our operations, to protect our customers, or to prevent a crime.

4. Your Choices Regarding Consumer Information

In order to function properly, the App requests access to the calendar, contacts, "me" profile, and phone call state of the device. This information is only used within the App; it is not transmitted and stored. For example: the Location condition uses the "me" profile and contacts to show locations important to the user like "home" and "work," and the Caller condition accesses contacts and phone call state to detect VIP callers. Meanwhile, the Calendar condition can see scheduled meetings and adjusts settings appropriately.

This information is only used within the App and only after the user configures a Calendar, Location, or Caller condition. If you do not wish the App to access this information, do not configure a Calendar, Location, or Caller condition.

5. Security of Consumer Information

Because your privacy is very important to us, we have put in place commercially reasonable technical, physical, and administrative measures to protect the Consumer Information that we collect. Except as provided elsewhere in this Privacy Policy, we limit access to Consumer Information databases to our personnel who have a business need for such access, including servicing your account or aggregating Contact Information or anonymous Usage Information.

We use industry-standard security methods, such as strong encryption, one-way hash functions, multi-factor authentication, rotating passwords, physical and technical access controls, code and security reviews, and other measures, to secure the communication and storage of information throughout the App and Website. Despite these efforts, you should know that no one, including our company, can guarantee that such methods are 100% secure.

6. Information from Children

If you are under the age of 13, you should use the App only with the involvement of a parent or guardian and should not submit any personal information to us. We do not intentionally target children under 13. We comply with all applicable laws designed to protect children’s information. Children under the age of 13 should not use our App without obtaining prior parental consent.

7. General

7.1 Amendments to this Privacy Policy

We may occasionally update this Privacy Policy. When we do, we will also revise the "last updated" date of the Privacy Policy. We encourage you to review this Privacy Policy periodically to stay informed about how we are helping to protect the Consumer Information we collect. Your continued use of the App constitutes your agreement to this Privacy Policy and any updates.

7.2 Technical Problems

Even though we have taken significant steps to ensure that your Consumer Information is never collected, used, or disclosed by us except as set forth by this Privacy Policy, technical mistakes are possible. If such a mistake takes place, we will take commercially reasonable steps to correct it.
