Privacy Shield Policy
The EU-US and Swiss-US Privacy Shield Frameworks were designed by the U.S. Department of Commerce in conjunction with the European Commission and Swiss Administration to provide companies on both sides of the Atlantic with a mechanism to comply with data protection requirements when transferring personal data from the European Union and Switzerland to the United States in support of transatlantic commerce. Honey’s Privacy Shield Policy is under the jurisdiction of the United States Federal Trade Commission, and is designed to preserve and protect the rights of Users in connection with their personal information. You can view a copy of Honey’s Privacy Shield certification here: https://www.privacyshield.gov/list.

In compliance with the Privacy Shield Principles, Honey commits to resolve complaints about our collection or use of your personal information. EU and Swiss individuals with inquiries or complaints regarding our Privacy Shield policy should first contact Honey at firstname.lastname@example.org
Honey has further committed to refer unresolved Privacy Shield complaints to the International Centre for Dispute Resolution/American Arbitration Association (ICDR/AAA) an alternative dispute resolution provider located in the United States.

The services of ICDR/AA are provided at no cost to you.

If, as outlined in our GDPR policy, Honey transfers any of Your Information to any other person, Honey, shall remain liable for that person’s use and processing of Your Information, and any non-conforming use by such person shall be Honey’s responsibility. You are able to use the dispute recourse mechanism referenced above (ICDR/AAA) for disputes relating to Honey’s use and handling of Your Information, or the use and handling of Your Information by any person to whom Honey has transferred that information.
Protecting Your Information
Honey uses commercially reasonable and industry standard security measures to protect Your Information. We also use up to 256-bit SSL (secure sockets layer) encryption to transmit sensitive information. However, no internet transmission or storage of information can be completely ensured to be safe from intrusion. As such, Honey can’t guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us.
In the unlikely event that your information is compromised by a security breach, either at Honey, or one of our sub processors, we undertake to notify you, as soon as possible, of the breach, and to include a description of the information we believe may have been affected, as well as the steps we are taking, or have taken, to secure Your Information.
Using Your Information
At various points of the user experience, Honey asks you for certain information. Some of this information is Your Information, and some is Other Information. This section discusses what of Your Information we use to optimize your experience with Honey, and how we use it. Later, we will explain the rights you have to access, review, and revise your information, or to request that we delete your information in its entirety.
The basis of our ability to retain and process Your Information is your consent. You are entitled to revoke your consent at any time by writing to us at email@example.com. However, you need to understand that limiting or withdrawing your consent may result in decreased functionality of Honey, or, may make Honey unusable.
What we use and why. We collect and use the following items of Your Information, for the following purposes:
- Your mobile telephone number – we use this in order to provide you with two-factor authentication, but we only use your telephone number if you opt-in to two-factor authentication. We engage a sub-processor to provide you with two-factor authentication.
Your employer, or the person or entity who provided you with your Honey subscription may also share information with us, such as your job title, employee identification number or designator, location, department, and other information associated with your employment (“Employer Shared Information”). We treat Employer Shared Information in the same manner that we treat Your Information, and your rights in connection with your Information, described below, also apply to any Employer Share Information.
In connection with your profile you may also elect to share information about yourself. The information you choose to share, other than your name, job title and email address, is purely optional, and not required to use Honey. We do not share any of the information in your profile with any sub-processors, other than your name, email address, job title and mobile number, as explained above.
Finally, you should be aware that documents and other files that you post on Honey are archived and stored securely. While these documents and files may not constitute Personal Information, they may contain Personal Information. While we employ the industry standard security protections over these documents and files, we do not scrape, scrub or otherwise review them and we are not able to redact them upon request. We can however delete them from our archives if you request us to.
Honey reserves the right to share Your Information to respond to duly authorized information requests of governmental authorities or where required by law.
Honey does not sell, rent or lease any of Your Information to any third party.
Subject Access Request
At any time, you are entitled to submit a Subject Access Request (“SAR”) to Honey. A SAR is a request which we are obligated to comply with, at no cost or penalty to you, which permits you to:
- Review and audit Your Information or Employer Shared Information;
- Be informed about the uses of Your Information or Employer Shared Information, including the names of any sub-processors we employ to assist us with optimizing our service and your experience with Honey;

- Request that we restrict the processing of any of Your Information or Employer Shared Information, with the understanding of potential loss of functionality as described above; and
You can submit an SAR by sending your request to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will ensure that we respond to your request within 30 days.
