This Privacy Policy explains how we may collect, use, store, and disclose information about the end users (“End Users”) of third-party mobile applications that use our Services as well as our Clients.

This Privacy Policy covers our processing of Personal Data that we gather when you are accessing or using our Services, but not to the practices of companies we don’t own or control, or people that we don’t manage. As used in this Privacy Policy, “Personal Data” means any information that can be used to individually identify a person, and “processing” generally covers actions that can be performed in connection with data such as collection, use, storage and disclosure.

We gather various types of Personal Data from our users, as explained in more detail below, and we use this Personal Data internally in connection with our Services, including to personalize, provide, and improve our services, to allow you to set up a user account and profile, to contact you and allow other users to contact you, to fulfill your requests for certain products and services, and to analyze how you use the Services. In certain cases, we may also share some Personal Data with third parties, but only as described below.

If you are a resident of the European Union (“EU”), United Kingdom, Lichtenstein, Norway, or Iceland, you may have additional rights under the EU General Data Protection Regulation (the “GDPR”) with respect to your Personal Data, as outlined below. Radar Labs, Inc. may be the controller of your Personal Data processed in connection with the Services. If you have any questions about this section or whether any of the following applies to you, please contact us at msommer@Craftbeerfinder.com. Note that we may also process Personal Data of our customers’ end users in connection with our provision of services to customers, in which case we are the processor of Personal Data. If we are the processor of your Personal Data (i.e., not the controller), please contact the controller party in the first instance to address your rights with respect to such data.

2. End User Information
We refer to the information we collect from End Users automatically through our Services on behalf of our Clients as the “SDK Information.” We only use SDK Information to provide the Services to our Clients, and for no other purpose. We will not sell or provide access to your SDK Information to any third party without your consent. The SDK Information may include, without limitation, the following types of data, some of which may be Personal Data:

Precise location (e.g., GPS-level) data, such as latitude, longitude, altitude, speed, heading
Mobile advertising identifiers (e.g., Apple IDFAs and Android advertising IDs)
IP addresses
Network information and connected wifi access points (e.g., connected SSIDs, BSSIDs, and signal strengths)
Device information (e.g., device make, device model, and operating system version)
Time zone information
Privacy preferences
We may additionally share the SDK Information with third parties in the following ways:

We share the SDK Information with our Clients in order to provide our Services to them.
We may share the SDK Information with the End User that is the subject of the SDK Information, upon Client’s request.
We share the SDK Information with our integration partners on Client’s behalf and request in order to provide the Services to our Clients.
This Privacy Policy does not apply to SDK Information or to the products, services and applications of our Clients (“Client Services”), and we are not responsible for our Clients’ handling of SDK Information. Our Clients have their own policies regarding the collection, use and disclosure of your Personal Data. To learn about how a particular Client handles your personal information, we encourage you to read the Client’s privacy statement.

Cookies. When you visit our sites, we will send you a cookie, which is a small file stored on your computer that allows us to uniquely identify it. Where required by applicable law, we obtain your consent for the use of cookies. You may choose to delete or not accept our cookies as described in this privacy policy. If you delete or choose not to accept our cookies, you may not be able to utilize all the features of our products and services.

Through cookies we place on your browser or device, we may collect information about your online activity after you leave our Services. Just like any other usage information we collect, this information allows us to improve the Services and customize your online experience, and otherwise as described in this Privacy Policy. Your browser may offer you a “Do Not Track” option, which allows you to signal to operators of websites and web applications and services (including behavioral advertising services) that you do not wish such operators to track certain of your online activities over time and/or across different websites. Our Services do not support Do Not Track requests at this time, which means that we collect information about your online activity both while you are using the Services and after you leave our Services.

Third Party Analytics. Our Services may use third party analytics tools, such as Segment, Google Analytics, and Amplitude (the “Analytics Providers”), that use cookies, web beacons, or other similar information gathering technologies to collect standard internet log information and usage information. The information generated is used to compile statistical reports on user activity. The Analytics Providers collects information such as how often users visit a website, what pages they visit when they do so, and what other websites they visited prior to coming to a website.
