Privacy Policy

Please read carefully before using this website and the Business Hangouts app, as described in the Terms of Service Agreement. The use of this Website is conditioned upon the User’s acceptance of the terms and conditions contained in this Privacy Policy, which is part of and incorporated by reference into the “Terms of Service Agreement” of this Website (the “Website”). This Privacy Policy constitutes a legally binding agreement between User and Business Hangouts (“provider”) and its partners. This Privacy Policy lists our current policies, but, as noted below, this Privacy Policy may be adjusted from time to time at our discretion. Those who do not agree to be subject to this Privacy Policy may not, under any circumstances, use this Website.

1. Data Collection


User should be aware that portions of this Website contain functions for collecting the User’s personal information including but not limited to User’s name, email address, accessing history of this Website, IP address, geolocation information, Social Media Profiles and information included, the type and capabilities of the computer and network software and hardware configuration User employs, and referrer identification.

2. Entry by User


Certain areas of this Website will require entry by the User of certain personal information as indicated above. Provider requires that the actual User input such information and that such information be the most recent available. In addition, User may request that Provider modify or delete User’s registered information by sending an email to Provider Support with the words “MODIFY USER INFORMATION” in the subject line.

3. Use of User Information: Hosts or Account owners


Meeting hosts (Hangouts hosts) are considered as providers customers, no matter if they use the app under a paid or a free plan. Provider reserves the right to compile, save, use within the scope of Provider’s activities, and analyze any and all User data (registration data, use history, etc.).

4. Use of User Information: Attendees to meetings (Hangouts)


Meeting (or Hangouts) attendees, either active participants or simple viewers, are considered as the hosts clients (clients of our clients). Meeting hosts are thus enabled full access to all their attendees’ user information at any time. Meeting Hosts, Account owners of The App or other Business Hangouts services, who open their virtual meeting to Attendees, can have full access to information regarding individual attendees and who have entered into their space, attended a Hangouts or a virtual event, including all user information (except for the password), time of entrance to their space, time of exit, downloaded documents, Geolocation information and generally any interactions during a hangouts or a virtual meeting.

Moreover, users who attend virtual meetings should acknowledge that other participants can record the meeting in the form of audio/video, as well as the chat history.

Provider has access to the attendees’ user information as well. But Provider intends to use such User data for internal purposes only, including for the purposes of responding to User’s requests for information and for contacting User. Provider reserves the right to compile, save, use within the scope of Provider’s activities, and analyze any and all attendees’ user data (registration data, use history, social network used for login, login information, etc.).

If an attendee becomes a host (or account owner) of this service, no matter before or after being an attendee, then they will be considered as a client of the service for which they have signed up, and thus will be treated under paragraph 3 above.

5. Choice/Opt Out


Provider may periodically send User information regarding Provider, its products and services. If User has been receiving such information and does not wish to continue receiving such information, please contact Provider Support to let us know that User no longer wishes to receive such information.

6. Disclosure of User Information


Provider will, to the extent possible, control User information, and, except as otherwise set forth herein, not disclose such User information to third parties. However, in the event disclosure of any User information by Provider is required by law, Provider may disclose such User information without the consent of User.

7. Cookies


A “cookie” is a piece of data stored on User’s hard drive containing information about the user. Provider may use cookies in order to collect certain information about User, such as IP addresses, domain names, type of computer and operating system being used. Provider may collect such information in order to better operate The App so as to enhance User’s use of the Website. By using cookies, Provider is able to recognize User when User revisits the Website, and it is able to remember certain information about User, such as User’s contact information. Depending on the type of browser you are using, your browser may be set to alert you of cookies. You do not have to accept all cookies sent to you by the Website; however, depending on the particular cookie you reject, you may not be able to use some of the features in the Website if a particular cookie is rejected.

The Website may from time to time include, for User’s convenience, links to third party sites, which provider does not own or control and which are controlled by third parties. Such sites may use cookies. However, Provider has no access to or control over these cookies, or the information collected by them. If User has any questions about how such third parties use cookies, User should contact such third parties directly.

8. Security


Provider uses reasonable security measures to safeguard information concerning, and submitted by users. Despite the above security measures employed by Provider, users should be aware that it is impossible to guarantee absolute security with respect to information sent through the Internet.
