Last Updated: March 8, 2021

HALIO, Inc. (collectively “we”, “us”, or “our”), operates the HALIO mobile applications (the “App”) and related HALIO service offerings, which are provided to end users directly or through HALIO, Inc. This Privacy Policy applies to the App, service offerings, and to any other mobile app offered by us that reference or link to this Privacy Policy (collectively, the “Services”).

The App provides cloud-based control to tint or clear tinted windows in HALIO-enabled office buildings. It allows building managers to grant access to its tenants and end users to use the App in their designated space in the building. After downloading and registering with the App, end users will be able to control window tinting and clearing tinted windows in their office or work space based on permissions communicated to us by building managers.

This Privacy Policy describes the types of information that we may collect or you may provide when you download, install, register with, access, or use the Services. This Privacy Policy also describes our practices for collecting, using, disclosing, and maintaining such information.

This Privacy Policy does not alter the terms of any other agreement that you may have with us. Your use of the Services constitutes your acceptance of this Privacy Policy. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH OUR POLICIES AND PRACTICES, DO NOT DOWNLOAD, INSTALL, REGISTER WITH, ACCESS, OR USE THE SERVICES. By downloading, registering with, accessing, or using the Services, you agree to the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy.

1. Personal Information We Collect. “Personal information” is data that can be used to uniquely identify or contact a single person. We may collect certain information directly from you when you register with the App. We may also collect certain information that you or your building manager provides to us. Before you install the App, you or your building manager provides us with your email address and the list of building windows that may be accessed via that email address. We use this information for authentication purposes.

We collect this information for registered users of our Services. If you register for an account on the App, we collect your name, username, email address, and password.

We may also collect personal information about you from third parties when you login to the App using third-party sign-on services (e.g., Google, Microsoft Office 365). If you choose to use those services to login, we may use those services to authenticate your identity, and to share certain personal information with us, such as your name, email, and other information indicated when you authenticate your login information. For example, if you create or login to an App using your Google account credentials, we will have access to certain information, such as your name and email address as authorized by you in your Google profile settings.

2. Automatic Data Collection; Technologies Used to Automatically Collect Information. Whenever you visit or interact with the Services, we, as well as our service providers, may use assorted technologies that automatically or passively collect information about how the Services are accessed and used. We refer to this information as “traffic data.” Traffic data may include browser type, device type used to access the Services (i.e., computer or mobile device), unique number assigned to identify such device, operating system, application version, click path taken through the Services, your use of features or applications on the Services, and other usage information. This information helps us manage, improve and customize the Services. Traffic data is generally non-identifying, but if we associate it with you as an identifiable person, we will treat it as personal information.

3. How We Use Information We Collect. We collect and use your personal information for a variety of business purposes, including to respond to your questions or requests, to provide the Services and the services that you request, to communicate with you about our Services, and to do all things necessary to administer the Services, and manage, protect and improve them.

4. Information We Share with Others. To provide the Services, we may work with our affiliates and/or business partners. As part of that relationship, we may share your personal information and other information with those affiliates and/or business partners who will use that information for business purposes and to help us provide the Services to you. As mentioned above in Section 1, we may receive certain information from your building manager. We may also share your information, including personal information, with the building manager and the tenant for the space you are controlling via the App to communicate about how the Services are being used. The information we share with building managers includes information about the office building, including building address, and the building location (longitude and latitude). We may disclose your personal information to third parties to protect the security and integrity of the Services, to correct technical problems and malfunctions on the Services, to technically process your information, to provide the Services, or to take precautions against liability. We also may provide your personal information to service providers who provide services on our behalf, such as our data centers. If you request services via a mobile device, your request will be transmitted via your mobile carrier’s network and your carrier may have access to it. Consult your carrier’s privacy policy for additional information.

We reserve the right to transfer any information we have about you in connection with a sale, merger, consolidation, change in control, transfer of assets, reorganization or liquidation of our business.

Unless your browser settings are configured to make your online activities and information about your online activities (such as traffic data as described above) invisible to usage analytics tools, we do not presently have the capability to omit you from usage analytics to the extent your browser only sends us a “do not track” message and does not otherwise screen you from tracking without any action on our part.
