Privacy Policy

1. What Personal Information Does Hoodime Collect?
2. Why is this information collected?

Your Services account will be associated with your phone number and this account will be used for all our Services that you use. Information you provide to one of our Services may be used with other Services from us that you or your friends use. For example, location information we receive in connection with your use of one of our apps may be used to customize the content you and your friends see in another of our apps. We may also draw upon this Personal Information in order to adapt the Services of our community to your needs, to research the effectiveness of our network and Services, and to develop new tools for the community. The contact information you provide may be used by Hoodime to send you timely and relevant promotions. By accepting this privacy policy, you give Hoodime the right to contact you by SMS, e-mail, mobile push notifications and any other forms of communication for such promotions.

Hoodime provides you, the user, with deals in various categories which are highly customized to your location, indicated tastes and probable use. Since the deals are time-sensitive, we need to collect the above information on a periodic basis. Your contact information is collected in order to enable you to share the deals that you discover on our platform with your friends at real-time.

3. How is My Information Shared?

Personal Information about our users is an integral part of our business. We neither rent nor sell your identifiable personal Information to anyone.

4. Available Information

Businesses, Locations, Events and Brands: One of the key purposes of the Services is to help users learn about businesses, locations, events and brands (for example, a restaurant or a movie theater or a hotel) that are relevant to them, and for these entities to provide information about themselves, their locations and events to users, as well as to reward users when they visit their location or event through offers and specials.

Publicly Available Information: When you use the Services, certain information is public, such as your public user profile information, tips, likes, saves, public photos, lists that you create and save, tastes and lists of friends and/or followers (as applicable to a particular Service), and may be searchable by search engines and be shared with or disclosed to third parties, including through our API to a wide range of users and services. We may also share or disclose aggregated and anonymous data, such as de-identified location data, to third parties, including users you may follow and users of our Service, for analytical or other purposes.

5. Determining your location

The Services deal with location, so in order to work, the Services need to know your location. Whenever you open and use/interact with our apps on your mobile devices) or go to one of our Sites, we use the location information from your mobile device or browser (e.g., latitude and longitude) to tailor the Services experience to your current location (i.e., we'll show you a list of nearby locations, friends and tips). This information is NOT shared in a form that is identified with you with others unless you are using a service that they offer. Also, the Services use your mobile device's ´┐Żbackground location to provide the Services, including to send you notifications of tips/friends/plans/interesting things etc. near you. If you have ´┐Żbackground location turned on, the Hoodime app will, from time to time, tell us about your device's location even if you are not directly interacting with the application.

6. Sharing Location with the Hoodime app

Your real-time location is not shared with anyone on the Hoodime app in a form that identifies you. If you use a service from one of our merchants, like or otherwise interact with a place or a deal, users may infer that you have been to that location.

By default, location sharing is turned on and is used to determine whether your mobile device should receive a deal based on the radial distance between the location of the Business sending the deal and the location of your mobile device.
