We believe in the importance of being able to control who gets what information. This not only means you want your coworker to have your work email, and your friend to have your personal phone number, but it also means there are people who shouldn’t have any of your information.
We’ve made several choices in how PULSE is built to ensure only the people you choose to share with get the details you choose to share. Unique Codes Each card has a unique QR code, so only people you’ve shared your code with can see your card. Data Encryption Data is encrypted, so only those who are meant to see your information see it. No Data Sold We know your personal information is, well, personal. It’s not our business to sell your data.
We do not sell our users’ private personal information. We require some basic information (an email address) to create an account. All other information you provide, such as your name or phone number, is optional. We track non-identifiable information about you, such as how often you use HiHello, in order to better understand use. We use this information to improve our services.
Information We Collect
We only collect information about you if we have a reason to do so–for example, to provide our Services, to communicate with you, or to make our Services better. We collect information in three ways: if and when you provide information to us, automatically through operating our services, and from outside sources. Let’s go over the information that we collect. Information you provide to us The amount and type of information depends on the context and how we use the information. Here are some examples:
Basic Account Information: We ask for basic information from you in order to set up your account. For example, we require individuals who sign up for an account to provide a username and an email address. You may provide us with more information – like your name.
Public Profile Information: If you have an account with us, we collect the information that you provide for your public profile. Your public profile is just that–public–so please keep that in mind when deciding what information you would like to include.
Communications with Us: You may also provide us information when you respond to surveys, communicate with us about a support question, or post a question about your site in our public forums.
Information we collect automatically
We also collect some information automatically: Log Information: Like most online service providers, we collect information that web browsers, mobile devices, and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, IP address, unique device identifiers, language preference, referring site, the date and time of access, operating system, and mobile network information. We collect log information when you use our Services. Usage Information: We collect information about your usage of our Services.
For example, we collect information about the actions that site administrators and users perform on a site–in other words, who did what, when and to what thing on a site. We also collect information about what happens when you use our Services along with information about your device (e.g., mobile screen size, name of cellular network, and mobile device manufacturer). We use this information to, for example, provide our Services to you, as well as get insights on how people use our Services, so we can make our Services better. Location Information: We may determine the approximate location of your device from your IP address. We collect and use this information to, for example, calculate how many people visit our Services from certain geographic regions.
How We Use Information
We use information about you as mentioned above and as follows: To provide our Services To further develop our Services To monitor and analyze trends and better understand how users interact with our Services, which helps us improve our Services and make them easier to use To personalize your experience using our Services.

Aggregated and De-Identified Information: We may share information that has been aggregated or reasonably de-identified, so that the information could not reasonably be used to identify you. For instance, we may publish aggregate statistics about the use of our Services. Published Support Requests: And if you send us a request (for example, via a support email or one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish that request in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Information shared publicly Information that you choose to make public is–you guessed it–disclosed publicly.Security We work very hard to protect information about you against unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction, and take reasonable measures to do so.
