Beta Privacy Policy

This privacy policy applies to users of the beta versions of GoHype (“Application”) that was created by GoHype Limited. GoHype is a travel recommendation and booking platform. The below terms apply to all those who register as users of the Application.

The terms of this Agreement solely apply to beta versions of GoHype, released by GoHype Limited (“Company”/ “we”/ “us”).

Summary

Thank you for participating in the GoHype Beta! We care a great deal about keeping your information safe. Your data is securely stored on Google’s Firebase, which is utilised by companies such as Twitch, and the service was built with security in mind. We don’t track your precise location, we only automatically collect anonymised data, and we only retain the data you provided us, whilst you are registered on GoHype. We also won’t reveal sensitive personal info, sell your email address or otherwise use your information for any purposes unrelated to the Application. 

If you are unsure about a clause in this Agreement or would like more clarification, please contact us at team@gohype.io

What information does GoHype obtain and how is it used?

How we protect your information

We want you to feel confident about using GoHype, and as mentioned in the ‘Summary’ section, we are committed to protecting the information you provide to us. While it is impossible for any service to guarantee absolute security, our security procedures help to protect your personal data as would reasonably be expected. For example, only authorised employees may have access to sensitive information, and only in cases where they need to know that information in order to operate, develop or improve our Application, and they only may do so for permitted business functions.

Does a third party have access to the data I provide to the Application?

Only anonymised, aggregated data will be transmitted to external services for metric analysis and to improve the Application.

We may disclose either User Provided and Automatically Collected Information (a) as we are required by law. For example, in the event of a subpoena or comparable legal procedure; (b) if we believe that disclosure is necessary in order to protect your safety or the safety of others, under instruction of the government, to investigate fraud or to protect our rights; and (c) if GoHype Limited is to have any change of ownership, by means of a merger, acquisition or sale, we will display this on the Application’s privacy policy, showing any changes to the use of your information, as well as the choices you have regarding this. 

How do I opt-out if I change my mind?

As soon as you uninstall the Application from your devices we will cease to collect any further information as stated in this privacy policy.
