SportzConnect LLC (“SC” or “Been”) knows that you take your privacy seriously. We do, too. We are committed to giving you transparency of our privacy practices and control over your data in connection with Been’s Services (as defined in Been’s Terms of Service). This Privacy Policy covers Been’s treatment of personally identifiable information (“Personal Information”) and other data that Been gathers when you are accessing Been’s Services. The Services are not available to individuals who are younger than 13 years old.

What Personal Information Does Been Collect?

  • Personal Information You Provide to Us: We receive and store any information you enter on our Services or provide to us in any other way. The types of Personal Information collected include, for example, your name, email address, phone number, birthday, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, Foursquare, and/or Facebook usernames, location, use information regarding your use of our Services, and browser information. The Personal Information you provide is used for such purposes as allowing you to set up a user account and profile that can be used to interact with other users through the Services, improving the content of the Services, customizing the advertising and content you and your friends see (including Been or third-party advertising or content), and communicating with you about specials and new features. Your Services account will be associated with your email (and optionally a 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 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.
  • Information Collected Automatically: When you use the Services, Been automatically receives and records information on our server logs from your browser or mobile platform, including your location, IP address, browser type, operating information, mobile carrier, device and application IDs, cookie information, and the page you requested. We treat this data as non-Personal Information, except where we are required to do otherwise under applicable law. Unless otherwise stated in this Privacy Policy, Been only uses non-Personal Information data in aggregate form, which we may provide in aggregate formto our partners about how Been’s users, collectively, use our Services, so that our partners may also understand how often people use their services and our Services.
  • Information We Receive from Third Parties: We receive and store information from third parties that interact in some way with the Services, or that provide services to us in connection with the Services. In addition, you may choose to use apps that share your Personal Information, activities and/or content with Been. Please read the privacy policy of any such app so that you understand its sharing practices.

How is My Information Shared?

Personal Information about our users is an integral part of our business. We neither rent nor sell your Personal Information to anyone, though, as described more fully in this section below (under “Publicly Available Information and Apps”), your publicly-available information is available to third parties, and we may provide it to third parties, by license or otherwise. Been may share your Personal Information only as described in this Privacy Policy and related documents.

  • Friends: Your friends can see, for example, your location (as described in more detail below), name, email, phone number, profile photo, hometown, links to your Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, Foursquare, and Facebook accounts (if you have connected those accounts to your Been account), a list of your friends, plans you write or comment on, photos you post, tips you write, and which Been Services you use.
  • Individuals reading your Personal Information may use it or disclose it to other individuals or entities without our control and without your knowledge. We therefore urge you to think carefully about including any specific information you may deem private in comments, plans or tips, or other content (location or otherwise) that you create in the Services.
  • 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 TV show, a TV personality, newspaper or a consumer good that manages a page on the Service) that are relevant to them, and for these entities to provide information about themselves, their locations and events to users. When you visit a particular location and ‘check-in’ your visits are shared with that location in order for it to better provide services to you. Additionally, brands may have access to aggregated and anonymous data, such as de-identified data about places that its followers visit (that is, not tied to individual users).
  • Publicly Available Information and Apps: When you use the Services, certain information is public, such as your public user profile information, tips, recommendations, dislikes, 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 check-in data (that is, not tied to individual users), to third parties, including users you may follow, for analytical or other purposes.

Determining and Sharing Location

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 device 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 and tips). We automatically receive your location when you use the Services. We use various technologies to determine location, such as location services of the applicable operating system or browser, and sensor data from your device that may, for example, provide information on nearby Wi-Fi- access points and cell towers. This information will only be shared in accordance with the terms of this Privacy Policy. Also, the Services use your mobile device’s ‘location accuracy’ to provide the Services, including to send you notifications of tips /plans/interesting things etc. near you. By default, sharing is turned on and your location data is shared with your Been friends upon venue check-in and is updated from time to time using your location accuracy. If you have ‘location accuracy’ turned on, the Been app will, from time to time, tell us about your device’s location even if you are not directly interacting with the application.

Sharing Location with the Been app – Your real-time location is not shared on the Been app. Location sharing is one of the key functions of Been. Your location data is ONLY shared with others when you proactively decide to “check in” on the Been app to tell the Services you’re at a particular place. The location information shared with a “Check in” is the location information of that place. If you write a comment, recommend, dislike, or otherwise interact with a place, users may infer that you have been to that location. Some content, like comments, are time stamped and other users could use that information to infer when you were at a place even though tips can be posted when you aren’t at the place you are leaving a tip about.

Your Check-in History – Each of your check-ins using the Services is saved, allowing you and your friends to look back at all the locations you have checked in since you created your Services account. You can delete any or all of your check-ins from the check-in details page on our website and in the apps. If for some reason you ever decide to delete your Services account, your entire check-in history will be removed from our database.

Services Features

The Services include several features that may allow you to share your information with others. Please review them carefully. Please remember that if you choose to provide personal information using certain features of the Services, that information may be available to the wider Services community, or may be published on our Sites, which is subject to indexing by third party search engines.

Sharing with Partners, in connection with business transfers, and for the protection of Been and others:

  • Our Partners: In addition to the data sharing described above, we enter into relationships with a variety of businesses and work closely with them. In certain situations, these businesses, provide services to you, sell items or provide promotions to you through the Services. In other situations, Been provides services, or sells items jointly with these businesses. You can easily recognize when one of these businesses is associated with your transaction, and we will share your Personal Information that is related to such transactions with that business.
  • Business Transfers: If Been or substantially all of its assets are acquired, or in the unlikely event that Been goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party.
  • Protection of Been and Others: We may release Personal Information when we believe in good faith that release is necessary to comply with the law, including laws outside your country of residence; enforce or apply our conditions of use and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of Been, our employees, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations (including outside of your country of residence) for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
