PERSONAL INFORMATION THAT WE MAY COLLECT FROM YOU
Our Services may attempt to collect information through a number of different methods. In many cases we collect information that you provide directly and voluntarily when interacting with our Services. When using our Services you may be offered the chance to submit your own personal information such as your name, email address, ZIP Code, gender, birth date, hobbies or other items of interest. This information is collected to enhance your experience by providing feedback, responses or content that is generated by you while engaging with the Services. If the information may possibly be used for any future contact, you will be presented with an opt-in to accept or deny the use of your contact information for future use.
In addition to the information about yourself, you may also be providing information during the usage of the Services such as voluntary participation in surveys, contests, photos, videos or other submissions. Our services may also collect aggregate information about our users.
You should also be aware that it is standard practice to collect web-based browser information that helps us to improve our Services. Examples of browser-based information may include information such as referring sites, website visit statistics, entry pages, exit pages and your IP address and other information available in this manner. We may also collect information regarding the usage of our Services.
Thuzi/Fish attempts to protect personal information that it collects, but these measures are not failsafe. In general we attempt to prevent the misuse of any information we collect through industry standard safeguards such as encryption, firewalls and highly secure data hosting facilities.
THUZI LIVEWAVETM MICROPHONE ACCESS AND SOUND COLLECTION
Thuzi employs a unique technology in its Thuzi Event Pass® platform that interacts with special sound tones. This technology requires permission to access the microphone on a smartphone and it will not work if the permission is not granted. When in use, the Thuzi Event Pass Mobile App may "listen" only for specific sound codes, and no audio of any kind is recorded. There is no listening for voice or other ambient noises, only ultra high frequency tones that trigger functionality on the Thuzi Event Pass Mobile App.
CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 13
Thuzi/Fish does not knowingly request or collect information from children under the age of 13. If you are under 13 we ask that you not use our Services, or if you are providing the care of a child under the age of 13 we ask that you prevent them from using our Services. If we learn that we have inadvertently collected information from a child under the age of 13, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you feel that we might have information from or about a child under 13, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. For children ages 13 to 18, we strongly recommend gaining parental approval prior to sending any personal information or using our Services.
