Data protection and aggregate sharing practices

Some features and functionality in Beam may require that you provide your location. We need location to be enabled ‘Always’ to tell when you’re visiting a partner location and to then automatically serve you a list of nonprofits supported by that partner. If you have your location services turned on, whenever you open and use or interact with our Apps on your mobile device, we collect and use your location data from your mobile device (e.g., latitude and longitude) to tailor our services to your current location (i.e., we’ll show you a list of nearby Beam partner locations). We will only process your location data with your permission. If you have background location data turned on by granting us permission through your device’s location settings and in your privacy settings, we will, from time to time, obtain your device’s location even if you are not directly interacting with the Apps. Other than reporting the total number of visits made by Beam users to our partner locations in aggregated form, your location is never shared with others.
We use various technologies to determine your location, such as the location services of your operating system or browser, sensor data from your device (e.g. magnetometer or barometer, Bluetooth data, beacon data, Wi-Fi access points, GPS data, and cell tower data), and other Data that may help us to understand your precise location. If you use Beam and have enabled background location services in the app, you have permitted us to collect the above Data about you in the background even when you do not have the app open (as permitted by your device settings). You may turn off location services at any time by going to your device settings and toggling off background location.
