How and Why We Gather Information
When you register for an account for the Services or at any later time, we collect certain personal information from you to open an account, transact business, communicate with you, verify your identity and fulfill legal and regulatory requirements. We call this your “Profile.” From time to time, we may request additional information (e.g., through surveys) to help us further assess your needs and preferences.
When you visit the Website, whether or not you register for an account, we may send one or more cookies.
We or our service providers may also collect web surfing data related to your use of the Services (e.g., information regarding which of our web pages you access, the frequency of such access, and your product and service preferences). This may be accomplished by using cookies, web beacons, page tags or similar tools. Such web surfing data may include your Internet Protocol (IP) address, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring or exit pages, click stream data, operating system and the dates and times that you visit the Website. Web surfing data and similar information may be used for administrative purposes; to assess the usage, value and performance of our online products and services; and to improve your experience with the Services.
Sharing Your Information
We may allow you to share certain information with other Users of the Services. You can share your profile with all other Users, or only with such other Users as are designated by you. You are not required to share your profile or any other information with other Users. If you do share your profile, anyone you designate will be able to see what companies you are following and investing in.
If you indicate an interest in making an investment through the Services, such as indicating an interest to buy equity or make a loan in a particular private real estate company, we will notify the party or parties offering the investment (the “Issuer”) of your interest and may notify other Users with whom you have chosen to share information. By indicating an interest in an investment and/or sharing your Profile with other Users, you consent to this disclosure of your information. We may also collect and store information, which could include Non-Personally Identifiable Information or Personally Identifiable Information, locally on your computer or device using mechanisms such as browser web storage or application data caches.
Social Media Services
You can log in to the Website using social media services such as Google or Facebook. These services will authenticate your identity and provide you the option to share certain personal information with us such as your name and email address to pre-populate our sign up form.
Notifications and Communications
HoneyBricks will send you email notifications from time to time. Some notifications are required elements of your transactions on our platform, such as confirmations of particular actions you have taken. These mandatory notices are sent typically to notify you of a change in status. For example, you will receive a notice when you are confirmed as an investor.
We also send out notices that are required for legal or security purposes. For example, certain notifications are sent for your own protection to ensure that another person cannot make a change to your account without your knowledge. In other cases, these notifications involve changes to various legal agreements or Site policies. Generally, you may not opt out of such service-related emails.
When you register as an investor, you will receive emails that confirm specific actions you requested. These will include emails to which you must respond to complete your registration and notifications confirming your registration. Thereafter, you will receive emails when a new investment opportunity is available on our platform, as well as updates concerning the progress of the funding of such investment and/or other relevant information. If you make an investment through the Site, HoneyBricks will also send you confirmations of the investment as well as occasional updates as to the status of that investment and the timing of distributions relating to that investment.
When you register as an investor and opt-in to HoneyBricks’s SMS Communications program, you are consenting to receive text messages sent by an automatic telephone dialing system and acknowledge that data usage charges may apply by your cell phone company. You may receive text messages regarding system notifications, investment opportunity updates, and special offers and promotions, and can manage your opt-in status in your user profile.
We may also send you responses to emails you send us, if appropriate. From time to time, we will also send user surveys, requests for user feedback regarding user experience and Site operations, or marketing offers from us or from us on behalf of our marketing partners. Completing these surveys, answering requests for feedback, or accepting any offer is strictly voluntary.
HoneyBricks will never send you an email asking you for your login information. In general, you can protect yourself against phishing by never providing personal or login information via a link contained in an email; instead, go the website directly. You might also make it a habit to check the URL of a website to be sure that it begins with the correct domain. In the case of HoneyBricks, you should always ensure the URL begins with https://HoneyBricks.com or https://www.HoneyBricks.com.
We may at times send you email communications with marketing or promotional materials. If you prefer not to receive such marketing or promotional emails from us, you may unsubscribe at any time. Please note that opt-out requests may take up to twenty-four (24) hours to process.
Please also note that at times we may need to send you email communications that are transactional in nature, such as service or termination announcements or payment confirmations. You will not be able to opt-out of these communications.
If we learn of a security systems breach, then we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. We may also post a notice on or through the Site in the event of a security breach. Depending on where you live, you may have a legal right to receive notice of a security breach in writing.
