Privacy Policy

Thanks for using HowTall! Here we describe how we collect, use and handle your information when you use our websites, apps, and services (the “Services”).

What & Why

We collect and use the following information to provide, improve and protect our Services:

Account. We collect and associate with your account with information like your name, voice, photos, email address, and phone number. The Services may let you access your account and your information with other service providers, like Facebook or Instagram. By associating your HowTall account with other service providers such as Facebook, you are authorizing us to have access to your publically available information from such accounts in connection with the Services in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Services. When you use our Services, we store, process, analyze, and transmit your voice, photos and information related to them (for example, location tags in photos, face recognition data, and other metadata). If you give us access to your contacts, we’ll store those contacts on our servers. This will make it easy for you to do things like share your stuff, send emails, and invite others to use the Services. If you give us permission to receive your mobile device location data, we collect and retain the location information from your device.

Usage. We collect information from and about the devices you use to access the Services. This includes things like IP addresses, the type of browser and device you use, the web page you visited before coming to our sites, and identifiers associated with your devices. Your devices (depending on their settings) may also transmit location information to the Services.

Cookies and other technologies. We use technologies like cookies and pixel tags to provide, improve, protect and promote our Services. For example, cookies help us with things like remembering your username for your next visit, understanding how you are interacting with our Services, and improving them based on that information. You can set your browser to not accept cookies, but this may limit your ability to use the Services.

Speech. HowTall requires you to enter Speech Data in order to use and derive the benefits of the Services. We collect and process the Speech Data you input into the app. We or third parties acting under our direction, pursuant to confidentiality agreements, use the Speech Data to develop, tune, enhance, and improve our services and products. We will not use the contents of any Speech Data provided to us through your use of the Services for any purpose except as set forth above. “Speech Data” means the audio files, associated text and transcriptions and log files provided by you hereunder or generated in connection with the Services. Speech Data may include personal information (e.g., name, address, telephone number, email address, and location).

Advertising. HowTall may display advertisements, served by us or through third party providers. The advertisements that are served on HowTall may include targeted, behavioral advertising based upon information compiled about our users to provide more relevant advertising content. We and third parties operating ad serving technology may use demographic and geo-location information as well as information logged from your hardware or device to ensure that relevant advertising is presented, including but not limited to, IP address, device IDs, application usage data, hardware type, operating system information, browser information, unique identifiers in browser cookies, and on-line usage information. When we make location enabled Services available, and you consent to enabling access to your geo location data through the Services, we will collect and process your location data in connection with the advertising described above. To the extent we make available geo-location to third parties in accordance with this Privacy Policy, it will be provided anonymously.

 

With whom

We may share information as discussed below, but we won’t sell it to advertisers or other third-parties.

We may share or disclose personal information as follows:

Analytics. Like most websites and app developers, we use third party analytic services to gather information through automated means such as cookies and similar technologies. We may engage a third party to help us track and analyze anonymous information from users of the Services.

Aggregate Information. We may share anonymous and aggregated information from our Services with others, such as merchants, advertisers, sponsors, potential investors and business partners. We may also provide them with reports that contain aggregated and statistical data for general marketing and demographic purposes.

 

Service Providers. Information compiled from our Services may be shared with service providers, like technical agents, subcontractors, and our affiliates and consultants, that are helping us with our Services. These intermediaries and data processors use your information in connection with performing the Services for which we have engaged them.

Investigations. We may disclose your information if permitted or required by law or is necessary to comply with the law enforcement or in response to a search warrant, subpoena or other legal process or where we believe such action is necessary in order to protect or defend our interests or the interests of our users or business partners.

Business Transfers. We may share your information during due diligence or in preparation for a sale, merger, consolidation, change in control, transfer of substantial assets, reorganization or liquidation. In addition, the business of HowTall, or any of its assets, may be sold, or other transactions may occur in which personally identifiable information is one of the key business assets for the transaction. Accordingly, we retain the right to share and transfer all information described herein with a purchaser of HowTall or its assets if that purchaser agrees to abide by the terms of this Privacy Policy.
