Privacy Policy

Last Updated: 11th September 2017

Hey Babe, heres the 411 on Beautystack Privacy.

Beautystack App, Inc. (“Beautystack,” the “Company,” “we,” and “us”) is committed to maintaining a trustworthy, curated community. To that end, the policy set forth below (the “Privacy Policy”) reflects our commitment to protecting your privacy and describes the information we collect, how that information may be used, and with whom it may be shared. By using our web application (the “app”) and related services (collectively, the “Service”), you are agreeing to be bound by the terms described herein. We encourage you to read this Privacy Policy and our
Terms of Use carefully and contact us at
hello@beautystack.co with any questions you may have.

We will occasionally update this Privacy Policy to reflect changes in the law, our data collection and use practices, the features of our Service, or advances in technology. When we make changes, we will email you and we will revise the “updated” date at the top of this Privacy Policy, which will be posted at http://www.beautystack.co/privacy. We encourage you to regularly check for the most recent version.
Your continued use of the Service following the posting of changes to this Privacy Policy will mean you consent to and acceptance thereof. If you do not consent to such changes you can terminate your account at any time as described in our Terms of Use.

When you’re using our Beautystack web application and related services, there is some information we collect about you, and you can share your information on the App with other users (“Users”).

Collection of information

In order to apply for membership to the Service, you will be asked to begin an application using your Instagram credentials. Upon doing so, you authorize us to access information from your Instagram account, such as your username, profile picture, biography, website, list of followers, list of people you follow, and number of pictures. You will also be asked to allow us to collect your geographical at all times, only while you are using the app or not at all. Further, you may be asked if you would like to display your specific location to other users. In addition, we may collect and store any personal information you provide while using our Service, which may include identifying information provided in your application, such as your name, Instagram username, email address, date of birth, gender, hometown, city of residence, and listed friends currently using Beautystack. In connection with your use of the Service, you may also provide us images, a biographical description, information about your gender and preferences for recommendations and connections. If you communicate with other users within the Service, you provide us the content of your conversation. Should you contact us with an inquiry, you provide us the content of that correspondence. You may change your personal information at any time within the app settings.

Beautystack will ask to manage your calendar. This is so we can insert your bookings that clients make on the site. Your calendar entries will not be visible publicly. Our calendar integration only checks the duration and free/busy status of the events in your calendar so that we don’t book you when you’re busy. We never save who you’re meeting with, their email, the meeting title or any other details about the appointments in your calendar outside of Beautystack.

Beautystack will ask to view your contacts. This is so you can easily import your client list into our database. We save these contacts under your demand. We have no access to your contacts unless you specifically choose to import them into your Dashboard. Beautystack will never contact your clients without your authorisation and action such as an appointment confirmation or a promotion on your site. These messages are considered part of the service and you may not opt out of these messages.

Information Collected Automatically

Information you provide. In addition to the information you provide, certain information will be automatically collected as you use the Service, including, but not limited to, the operation system used by your device, your device type and ID, your IP address, and access times. If you grant us permission to use location services, we will automatically collect data regarding your geographical location at all times or while the app is actively running, as applicable. Note that even if you do not grant us permission to use location services, we may collect data regarding your city, state and general location (not not your exact location) through your IP address.

Once your application is successful, you are able to sign up to Beautystack through your Facebook account. We will collect information about you from your Facebook profile (“Registration Information”) including:

  • Name;
  • Age;
  • Photographs;
  • Email address;
  • Telephone number;
  • Location;
  • Workplace;
  • Friends List;

Uses made of the information

Information Shared with Other Users. When you register as a user of the Service, your app profile will be viewable by other users of the Service. Such other users will be able to view information you have provided to us directly or through Instagram, such as your Instagram username, photos you upload, your first name, your age, city of residence, hometown, your biography, and information you have in common with the person viewing your profile, such as mutually followed Instagram accounts. Users are about to chat with you through the Service. Should you engage in a conversation through our Service, that user with whom you are communicating will see the content of that interaction. By submitting an application to Beautystack, you are giving the app access to your Instagram profile through the use of Instagram’s API. However, the Instagram information automatically available to users of the app will not exceed the information otherwise accessible through your Instagram profile. Therefore, a “private” Instagram user profile will still be private; only the content you choose to share with Beautystack users will be visible.

We may use information about you, or technical information relating to your mobile device to:

  • offer you our services and features;
  • contact you with information about the App subject to the “Marketing” section below;
  • respond to any queries you raise when you contact us directly;
  • notify you about changes to our service;
  • carry out internal operations such as troubleshooting, data analysis, testing, research or for statistical purposes;
  • investigate fraud, protect our legal rights, and to enforce our
    Terms of Use
  • to allow you to participate in interactive features of our service, when you choose to do so

If you accept, push notifications/alerts will automatically be sent to you. If you no longer wish to receive push notifications/alerts from the App, you may opt out by changing the notification settings on your mobile device.

Geolocation Information

Upon using the App, you will be asked to turn on location services. If you turn these features on, we may collect your device’s geolocation data and save your device’s coordinates to offer certain features to you. We may also use your device’s geolocation information to personalise the App and make it easier for you to interact with other Users close by. You can control your location information settings in your Account settings and switch them off if you want to. Even if you have disabled location services, we may still determine your city, state, and country location based on your IP address (but not your exact location).

Our servers automatically record information (“Log and Usage Data”) created by your use of Beautystack, which again helps us to improve our service. Log and Usage Data may include information such as your IP address, browser type, the referring domain, pages visited, access times, your mobile carrier, and search terms. Other actions, such as interactions with Beautystack and advertisements, may also be included in Log and Usage Data.

Even after you remove information from your profile or delete your Account, copies of that information may still be viewable and/or accessed to the extent such information has been previously shared with others, or copied or stored by other Users or to the extent such information has been shared with search engines. We cannot control this, nor do we accept any liability for this. If you have given third party applications or websites access to your personal information they may retain such information to the extent permitted under their terms of service or privacy policies. Removed and deleted information may persist in backup copies for up to 30 days to enable restoration, but will not be available to others in the meantime.
