IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH THE TERMS OF THIS PRIVACY POLICY, PLEASE DO NOT ACCESS THE APPLICATION.

1. Information We Receive Or Collect About You

Coupon Number: We do not collect your name, email address, phone number or other unique personal identifiers. The data that we collect from you will, instead, be tagged with your Coupon Number, an anonymous randomly-generated id that you obtain after registration. It is your responsible to keep your Coupon Number safe.

Device Information: All device information collected is tagged with your Coupon Number. After registration, device information such as device manufacturer and model, operating system version and type, phone sleep interval, and Firebase Instance Id, which is used for sending push notifications.

Location Information: All location information collected is tagged with your Coupon Number. We collect your location information from devices you use while accessing the application. Device location information may be derived from GPS and nearby wireless signals such as cell towers, WiFi networks or Bluetooth beacons. We will not collect your device-based location information unless you have permitted the Application to access location services on your device. You can disable this access at any time in your system settings.

Proximity Bluetooth Information: All Proximity Bluetooth information collected is tagged with your Coupon Number. The Application broadcasts itself and attempts to discover other phones running the Application. Other device with the Application only has three pieces of information about you: 1) an anonymous identifier (“Coupon Number”), 2) the study id that your Coupon Number is registered to, 3) the Received Signal Strength Indicator (“RSSI”) level, which is used to proximate the distance between two devices. This functionality will begin after you register and consented to the study.

Application Usage Information: All application usage information collected is tagged with your Coupon Number. We will collect data regarding your activity in the Application. We will collect information such as the answers you submitted to our questions, time of answer, question start time and question end time.

2. How We Share And Use Information We Collect

Study Investigators: The Study Investigator(s) who created the study that you are participating in will have access to your location and proximity Bluetooth data, as well as, your answers to questions and any metadata regarding your answers. All data that the Study Investigator(s) see is indexed by your Coupon Number.

Anonymous Statistical Data: Your data may be used to compile anonymous statistical data for research on a particular population. Your data may also be used to improve on the performance and efficiency of the Application.

Contextually-Aware Questions: The data that you provided to us may trigger contextually-aware questions.

Push Notifications: Study Investigators may send push notifications to you based on the data that you have provided to the Application.

3. Managing Your Data

Deleting Your Data: The Application attempts to connect to the server hourly. After a month of such inactivity, we will delete your data from our servers. If you would like us to delete your data earlier than that, please contact us with your Coupon Number.

Accessing Your Data: In order to access your data, you may contact us with your Coupon Number, which can be found in the settings page of the Application. Note that we will be unable to provide you with your data if it was deleted due to inactivity.

We reserve the right to make changes to this Privacy Policy at any time and for any reason. We will alert you about any changes by updating the “Last updated” date of this Privacy Policy and via push notifications on the Application. Continued use of the Application following the notice of such change shall indicate your acknowledgement of such changes and agreement to be bound by the terms and conditions of such changes.
