Throughout this document, we will use a few terms to describe various products and roles. All of the text, data, information, software, graphics, photographs and more that we and our affiliates may make available to you, plus our websites and any services, plug-ins, software, or applications (including Boox.dev Click, Boox.dev for Chrome, Boox.dev for Firefox, and any Boox.dev applications) that we may provide all together constitute the Boox.dev “Website.” Boox.dev “Users” are the people who have created a Boox.dev account, and “Boox.dev Invitees” are people who have scheduled a meeting with a Boox.dev User but may or may not have registered with Boox.dev. A Boox.dev “Viewer” is a person who visits the Boox.dev Website but may or may not be a Boox.dev User or Boox.dev Invitee.

 

Information We Collect.

We collect information about you directly from you and automatically through your use of our Website. We may combine information automatically collected with other information that we have collected about you including from publicly available sources.

In order to help you protect yourself and your information, we encourage you to provide only that information that is necessary for using our Website. For example, to schedule a meeting you may only need to provide us with a name, email address, date, and time.

Boox.dev is not directed to children under thirteen (13) years of age and we do not knowingly collect Personal Information from children under 13. If we discover that a child under 16 has provided us with Personal Information, we will promptly delete such Personal Information from our systems.

 

Information You Provide Voluntarily.

Boox.dev collects the following information, either directly from Boox.dev Users, Invitees, or Viewers, or through third-parties regarding Users, Invitees, or Viewers.

 

Appointment Information.

A Boox.dev User, Invitee, or a third-party may voluntarily give us certain information. This can include names, email addresses, and phone numbers; email addresses of other people; the subject of the meeting; and any other information provided to us or as required by the Boox.dev User upon scheduling, pursuant to the Boox.dev Terms of Use. If you receive an invitation from a Boox.dev User but do not wish to become a Boox.dev User, please contact the Boox.dev User who sent the invitation through other means to set up your meeting.

 

Calendar Information.

A Boox.dev User may connect their calendar with Boox.dev. 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 store who you are meeting with, their email address, the meeting title, or any other details about the appointments in your connected calendar.

 

Billing Information.

If you purchase a premium version of Boox.dev, our third-party payment processors will collect and store your billing address and credit card information. We store the last four digits of your credit card number, card type, and the expiration date.
