Last Updated: June 17, 2014.

Introduction
This privacy policy governs the User's (“User”, “Lapa User”, “You”) use of this mobile application (“Lapa App”, “Application”), created by Lapa Studio, Lda (“Lapa Studio”, “We”, “Us”) for iOS and Android mobile devices and its interaction with our Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) tracking devices (“Lapas”, “Lapa Devices”) through our lost & found services (“Lapa Services”).

Lapa Studio may change this Policy at any time and without notice, effective upon the posting of the revised Policy. Your continued use of the website and store shall be considered your acceptance of the revised Policy.

We are committed to ensuring that the User's privacy is protected and that the private data that we collect from the User will only be used in accordance with this privacy statement.

Our Lapa Services are based on the Bluetooth communication between your Lapa App and your Lapa Devices (“Scanning Service”); on the geo-location of your Lapas provided by a community of Lapa App users that share geo-location (e.g., GPS) information with us about any Lapas tracked by their mobile devices (“Location Service”); and on sharing your User Data whenever you actively report your Lapa devices as lost for other Lapa Users to be able to help you (“Report as Lost Service”).

Collected Personal Data and Facebook Authentication.
The Lapa App obtains the information you provide when you register your Lapa account. When you register with us and use the Lapa App, you provide your email address, your profile picture, and an encrypted password.

If you login to the Lapa App with your Facebook account, the Application will ask some Facebook permissions allowing it to retrieve User's Personal Data from it, namely the User's profile picture, email, and friends' list.

Facebook Authentication is a registration and authentication service provided by Facebook Inc. and is connected to the Facebook social network.

For more information about the permissions mentioned above, refer to the Facebook permissions documentation and to the Facebook privacy policy.

The User's email address, profile picture and friends' list is accounted as “User's Personal Data”.

In addition to the User's Personal Data, from the time the User register a Lapa Device we collect information related to the User's Lapa color, picture, name, and description.

The User's Personal Data jointly with the User Lapas' colors, associated pictures, names, and descriptions are accounted as “User's Data” or “User Data”.

All User Data is collected to allow the Lapa App to provide its services. This information may be shared to other Lapa App users only if you explicit share your Lapa devices or report them as lost. We may also use the User's Data to provide support, send updates, and communicate important information, required notices and marketing promotions.

Automatically Collected Information.

Services Usage Analytics.
The Lapa App may collect certain information automatically, including, but not limited to, the platform, model, manufacturer, operating system version of the User's mobile device, usage habits, the timestamps in which the User launches and exits the Application, and geo-location data.

This data is used to create statistical data and reports about the usage of our Application by its users. This data is anonymously sent back to our third party analytics service provider, located in the USA.

Location Services.
The Lapa App automatically retrieves the User's geographic (e.g., GPS) location through his mobile device every time the User is in reach of his Lapa Devices (“Last Seen Position”) or the Lapa Devices of any other Lapa User (“Community Track”). Such information will be properly encrypted and anonymously sent by the User's mobile device to our server, located in the USA, and will be used to update the last seen geo-location of such Lapa Devices without ever referring which User shared such location.

If you do not want us to use your location for the purposes set forth above, you should turn off the location services for the Lapa App, located in your mobile phone settings.

If you just want to use your mobile device's geo-location for the purposes of “Last Seen Position” you can turn off the “Community Track” in the “Settings” menu of the Lapa App.

We will not share your Lapas' current location with other Lapa Users unless you explicit share them or report them as lost.
