Privacy Policy

GENERAL INFORMATION

Your privacy as a user is very important to us. It is POZBEE's policy to respect your privacy and comply with any applicable law and regulation regarding any personal information we may collect about you, including via our Pozbee. application (hereafter “app”), website, and its associated services.

Personal information is any information about you that can be used to identify you. This includes information about you as a person (such as name, address, and date of birth), your devices, payment details, and even information about how you use an app or online service.

If our app contains links to third-party sites and services, please be aware that those sites and services have their own privacy policies. After following a link to any third-party content, you should read their posted privacy policy information about how they collect and use personal information. This Privacy Policy does not apply to any of your activities after you leave our app.

 

This policy is effective as of 30 May 2021.

WHO ARE WE AND WHAT ARE WE DOING?

Please read this Privacy Policy before using our Service or submitting any Personal Data to Pozbee and contact us if you have any questions.

INFORMATION WE COLLECT

Information we collect falls into one of two categories: “voluntarily provided” information and “automatically collected” information.

“Voluntarily provided” information refers to any information you knowingly and actively provide us when using our app and its associated services.

Additionally, when you encounter certain errors while using the app, we automatically collect data about the error and the circumstances surrounding its occurrence. This data may include technical details about your device, what you were trying to do when the error happened, and other technical information relating to the problem. You may or may not receive notice of such errors, even in the moment they occur, that they have occurred, or what the nature of the error is.

Please be aware that while this information may not be personally identifying by itself, it may be possible to combine it with other data to personally identify individual persons.
