Privacy Policy

October 1, 2017

Website Visitors
Like most websites or mobile apps, Hoverlay collects un-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Hoverlay’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Hoverlay’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Hoverlay may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its mobile app.

Hoverlay also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users. Hoverlay only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Hoverlay users choose to interact with Hoverlay in ways that require Hoverlay to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Hoverlay gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who are willing to create a Hoverlay account to provide a username, name, email address, password, and date of birth and optional cell phone number. Your unique username and name are visible to everyone. In order to make easier for other Hoverlay users to find you, you can optionally provide us with a profile picture, and hyperlinks to your social network profiles. Those who engage in transactions with Hoverlay – by purchasing premium services, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Hoverlay collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Hoverlay. Hoverlay does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain mobile app or website related activities. Be aware of that any piece of information you send through Hoverlay like text, photos, videos and links are public by default.

You can use Hoverlay as a guest, without authentication. It is however a limited feature and access to some features of the app is restricted to authenticated users.

Contact information
We reserve the right to use your email address as well as your cell phone number. If you provide us your email address as well as your cell phone number, it means you are agreeing to received text message, e-mail message or directly via the app for marketing and other information about our company and services.

Devices information
Device information helps us optimize and prioritize improvements to our services. We reserve the right to collect information about all devices (computers, phones, tablets and other devices) used to interact with our services. Here is a list of information we reserve the right to collect:

- Device location
- Details of how you used our service, such as your search queries
- Internet Protocol address
- Browser Information (Screen Resolution, Signature, Session, Language)
- Time Zone

Aggregated Statistics
Hoverlay may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites and mobile application. For instance, Hoverlay may monitor the most popular content at certain locations to help recommend content to users, or optimize its delivery. Hoverlay may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Hoverlay does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Information We Collect from Other Sources
With your authorization, we may also obtain information about you from other sources. For example, if you create or log into your Hoverlay account through a social media service (like Facebook, we will receive information from that service (such as your username and basic profile information) via the authorization procedures used by that service. The information we receive depends on which services you authorize and any options that are available.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Hoverlay discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Hoverlay’s behalf or to provide services available at Hoverlay’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Hoverlay’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Hoverlay will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Hoverlay discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Hoverlay believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Hoverlay, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Hoverlay website and have supplied your email address, Hoverlay may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Hoverlay and our products. We primarily use our various blog to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Hoverlay takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
