We have designed the Services to give you control over the information you provide using the Site and other sites and services to which you connect your Harmony Helper account. Please take full advantage of these tools and make sure you only provide information or content that you want to provide.
Harmony Helper and third party software application developers provide the App in their App Store for download and use in connection with photographs and audio (collectively “Content”) provided by the users of the Services (“Users”). The App may also interact with certain social media platforms (each a “Platform”) that allows users of the App to interact with the applicable Platform to modify, distribute, share and store their Content (“Sharing”). It is Harmony Helper’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while using one of the Apps.
Gathering Non-Identifiable Information
When using any App created by Harmony Helper, Harmony Helper may receive and store certain personally non-identifiable information, such as device operating system version, device type and crash logs. Such information, which is gathered using various technologies such as third-party analytics tools, cannot be used to specifically identify a user. Harmony Helper only collects such information to better understand users of its App and how to better serve them. Harmony Helper may also gather personally-identifying information which is described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
When using any App created by Harmony Helper, Users may interact with the App in ways that may require the User to send personally-identifying information to Harmony Helper. The amount and type of information gathered depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, you might contact Harmony Helper by sending an email and Harmony Helper will use that data to provide an answer to your question or resolve your specific issue. In each case, Harmony Helper collects personally-identifying information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of an interaction. A User can always refuse to provide such personally-identifying information, but that may prevent them from resolving an issue or using features of the App.

In order to register for a Harmony Helper account, you are required to provide Harmony Helper with certain personal data, such as your email address, phone number, user name and password. Your user name may be listed publicly on the Services, including in search results. We may use your email address and/or phone number to send you information about the Services, provide customer support or notify you of additional products and services. You may unsubscribe from such notifications.
You may also choose to provide Harmony Helper with additional personal data for your profile, which we will make public (your “Public Profile”), such as a picture, your location and some additional information about yourself.

Information Collected via Technology
Our App may also collect the following information:
Log Files. As is true of most websites, Harmony Helper gathers certain information automatically and stores it in log files. This information includes Internet Protocol addresses, browser types, internet service providers, referring/exit pages, operating systems, date/time stamp and clickstream data. Harmony Helper uses this information to analyze trends, administer the App, track Users’ movements around the App, gather demographic information about our User base as a whole, and better tailor our Apps to our Users’ needs.
Google Analytics. We use Google Analytics’ Demographics and Interest Reporting features to collect information about usage of the Site. Google Analytics collects information such as how often Users visit the Site, what pages they visit when they do so, and what other sites they used prior to coming to the Site. We will not facilitate the merging of your personal data with non-personally identifiable information collected through Google Analytics unless we have given you notice of that merger. You may opt-out of Google Analytics tracking with the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on.
If Required by Law
Regardless of any choices you make regarding your personal data, we may preserve and disclose your information if we believe in good faith that we are required to do so in connection with any legal investigation or by law or regulation, including in response to a court order, subpoena or other legal demand or request.

Creation of Anonymous and Aggregated Data
We may create anonymous and/or aggregated data records from personal data by excluding information (such as your name) that makes the data personally identifiable to you. We use such anonymous and aggregated data to analyze request and usage patterns so that we may enhance the content of the Services and improve Site navigation. We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to use anonymous and/or aggregated data for any purpose and to disclose anonymous and/or aggregated data to third parties for any purpose.
Certain functions of the App may allow Sharing of Content. Users should be aware that this involves two different types of data that are covered above. First, in order to access and integrate with your Platform, the User will need to be logged into his or her Platform account (e.g. Facebook account, Twitter Account, Vine Account, Instagram account, etc.) and will need to authorize Harmony Helper to access the account by collecting Oauth Tokens, handles or device identifiers that are used by the Platform to uniquely identify the User. Any information that we collect may depend on the privacy settings the User has set with the Platform. The App may ask you to provide your username and password for the relevant Platform. Users may control and change their settings by logging into their accounts with each Platform.
Disclosure of Personally-Identifying Information
Harmony Helper does not sell any of your personally-identifying information it collects to anyone. Harmony Helper discloses potentially personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that need to know that information in order to process it on Harmony Helper’s behalf, and have agreed not to disclose it. Other than its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, Harmony Helper will only disclose personally-identifying information when required to do so by law or when Harmony Helper believes in good faith that it is reasonably necessary to protect the rights or property of Harmony Helper, to protect the safety of Users of its App or the public, or to protect against legal liability.
Integrating Third Party Services
The App created by Harmony Helper may offer the ability to share content created with the App to online third party services, such as social networking services (“Third Party Services”). The App may ask you to provide your username and password for the relevant Third Party Services. By providing this information you are allowing the App to pass your log-in information to a service to share content created with the App. When you enable a Third Party Service account in the App, it will collect your login information and other relevant information necessary to enable the App to access that Third Party Service and your data contained within that Third Party Service.

California Users: Your California Privacy Rights
California’s “Shine the Light” law, Civil Code section 1798.83, requires certain businesses to respond to requests from California customers asking about the businesses’ practices related to disclosing personal information to third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes. Alternatively, such businesses may have in place a policy not to disclose personal information of customers to third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes if the customer has exercised an option to opt-out of such information sharing. Harmony Helper has such a policy in place. Despite any indicated preferences opt-out, Harmony Helper may still send service related communications.
