1. Information we receive from or on behalf of our clients, such as the email addresses their customers supply when signing up for Wi-Fi or visiting our clients’ websites, as well as certain information collected in connection with the Wi-Fi routers; and
2. Information collected from visitors to BotBit’s own website, www.botbit.io.
1. Privacy Practices for Information We Receive From or On Behalf of Our Clients
In an expanding number of cities, we provide our clients (restaurants, stores and other businesses) with wireless routers that let them share their Internet connection with people around their location. Like all Wi-Fi routers, ours receive the unique MAC address of nearby wireless devices, such as smartphones. We keep a record of these MAC addresses and the Wi-Fi routers they are near, absent a legal constraint or an applicable opt-out. To sign up to use the Internet connection though a client’s Wi-Fi, a person must (1) submit basic contact information, such as an email address or mobile phone number, and (2) agree to terms and privacy practices. The user may choose to enter additional information, such as their month and day of birth.
After a user signs up, we associate their email address and other personal information with their device’s MAC address and with any location history we may previously have gathered (or later gather) for that device’s MAC address. Later, when the user’s device returns to this client location or enters the Wi-Fi range of another BotBit router (of any BotBit client), we automatically recognize the device and record the visit in our record for that device, unless the user has opted out (as described in detail below). We also may record information about whether and when the individual used the Internet, but BotBit does not review or record the actual Wi-Fi traffic (such as the content of emails sent through the Wi-Fi or the URLs of web pages visited).
In addition to the above, our clients may provide us with personal information (usually about their current and potential customers), such as customer contact or point-of-sale information. We also collect information from third-party sources (such as social networking platforms). We may enhance the data we receive from or on behalf of a particular client with data that we receive from other data sources or that we have inferred or modeled ourselves.

Opt-out and Privacy Rights

Your country may also give you additional rights to object to our processing of your personal information or to withdraw your consent to our processing of your information. You may contact us at email@example.com to make those requests or for help with the MAC address opt-out described above.
If you believe that any child under 13 has provided us with any personal information, we ask that the parent or guardian of that child contact us to ensure that such information is deleted from our files.
