Information we collect and use
Information Collected Upon Expression of Interest: By completing our expression of interest form on the website, your information (such as your name, brand name, email address, website / social media / blog links etc.) will be collected by Hypetap to assess your suitability for the platform.
Information Collected Upon Registration: If you desire to have access to certain restricted sections of the Services and/or to have access to or use of certain parts of the Services, you will be required to become a registered user, and to submit certain Personal Information to Hypetap. Personal Information that we may collect in such instances may include your name, brand name, password, email, city, time zone, social media links and other information that you decide to provide us with, or that you decide to include in your public profile.
Log Data: When you interact with the Site or use our Services, our servers automatically receive and store certain personally non-identifiable information (“Log Data”). This Log Data is collected passively and may include information such as your IP address, browser type or the domain from which you are visiting, the Site pages you visit, the search terms you use, and any advertisements on which you click. For most users accessing the Internet from an Internet service provider, the IP address will be different every time you log on. We use Log Data to provide you with the Services (for example, to provide push notifications on your mobile device) and pool it with other information to monitor the use of the Services, and for the technical administration of the Services. We do not associate your IP address with any other Personal Information to identify you personally, except in cases where we are asked to comply with a subpoena or other legal demand or where we suspect that there has been a violation of our policies, our Terms of Service and/or applicable law.
Use of Information
In an ongoing effort to better understand and serve the users of our Services, Hypetap also often conducts research on its customer demographics, interests and behaviour based on the Personal Information and other information provided to us. This research may be compiled and analysed on an aggregate basis, and Hypetap may share this aggregate data with its affiliates, agents, advertisers and business partners. This aggregate information does not identify you personally. Hypetap may also disclose aggregated user statistics in order to describe our Services to current and prospective business partners, and to other third parties for other lawful purposes (including providing advertising use cases to actual or potential advertisers).
Information Sharing and Disclosure
We consider your information to be a vital part of our relationship with you. There are, however, certain circumstances in which we may share your Personal Information with certain third parties without further notice to you, as set forth below.
Service Providers: We engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to us, including, without limitation, hosting and maintenance, customer relationship, database storage and management, and direct marketing campaigns. We will share your Personal Information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these functions and provide such services. Each time we provide any of your Personal Information to our partners, we only provide information to these partners that is publicly available or publicly viewable in your Hypetap profile at the time we provide it.
Business Transfers: Hypetap may sell, transfer or otherwise share some or all of its assets, including your Personal Information, in connection with a merger, acquisition, reorganization or sale of assets or in the event of bankruptcy.
Disclosures for Legal Purposes: Hypetap may disclose your Personal Information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to (i) comply with a legal obligation, (ii) protect and defend the rights or property of Hypetap, (iii) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of the Services or the public, or (iv) protect against legal liability.
We care about the security of your Personal Information. We employ administrative, physical and electronic measures designed to protect your information from unauthorized access. However, no Internet or email transmission is ever fully secure or error free. We will make any legally-required disclosures of any breach of the security, confidentiality, or integrity of your unencrypted electronically stored Personal Information to you via email or conspicuous posting on this Site in the most expedient time possible and without unreasonable delay, consistent with (i) the legitimate needs of law enforcement or (ii) any measures necessary to determine the scope of the breach and restore the reasonable integrity of the data system.
