2. WHAT INFORMATION DOES BEAMERY COLLECT?
The Personal Data that we collect depends on our relationship with you.
A. Information You Provide to Us:
Sensitive Information: We may collect information sensitive information (for example, your race, gender, or sexual orientation) for our diversity and inclusion reporting but only where you voluntarily provide this. We may also collect sensitive information if required by the relationship, for example, to make payments to you.
De-identified Information: We may also de-identify Personal Data to reduce the chances of being individually identified (e.g. replacing a name by a random number and deleting the original name; grouping 30 individual Candidates from London into one group “Candidates from London”). We use that de-identified and/or aggregated information for our own purposes, including statistics, analysis, AI, machine learning, and development of our product, or to provide that information to our partners for visitor statistics and analysis of our Website, Services, and our partner's services. We use one-way data hashing for analytics purposes to ensure there is less risk of personal identification reversal. We use hashing on all Personal Data. For any linkable Personal Data, we ensure that we process aggregated data only, so there is a many-to-many relationship, and any reference can less likely be traced to an individual. Any technical data we store for service delivery (like IP addresses) is not tied to any other data piece that contains Personal Data and is treated as a technical data point only.

If you allow us access to your “friends list”, your friends’ user IDs, and your connection to those friends, we may process them to provide social features to you that you have actively turned on and which make your experience on our Website and in our Services more social, e.g. to allow you to invite your friends to use our Services as well as provide you with updates if and when your friends join Beamery. Friends list information and shared contacts may also be used to improve Beamery’s Services only if and to the extent it is permitted under applicable law. You should always review and, if necessary, adjust your privacy settings on third-party websites and services before linking or connecting them to the Services.
