Browser Settings and Control: Most web browsers are set to accept cookies by default, but you can modify your browser settings to reject cookies. Note that blocking cookies may affect the functionality of our website and services. Our website may offer functionalities to set your cookie preferences, but these are dependent on your browser’s cookie settings. Clearing browser cookies may delete your preferences until they are reset. Third-Party Cookies: Some of our Service Providers may use their own cookies or tracking technologies in connection with the services they provide on our behalf. Device-Specific Options: Cookie preferences and settings are specific to the browser and device you use.

    Utilization of Session Replay Technology

At Honeyguide, we employ session replay technology on our
website. This technology involves the following:

Functionality: Session replay, also known as session playback or UX replay, is used to gather, record, and track your interactions on our website or applications. This includes tracking mouse movements, clicks, page visits, scrolling, and other user actions. The technology reconstructs these activities to provide a visual replay of your actual experience on our website or application. Purpose of Use: We use session replays to enhance customer service quality, support fraud prevention and security measures, and for marketing analysis. The technology aids in identifying usability issues, improving user experience, and ensuring the integrity of transactions on our platform. Third-Party Involvement: The session replay technology is operated by a third-party service provider under our direction. The data collected by this technology may be transferred to, and stored by, our third-party provider as part of their service provision.

  ChatBot Technology for Customer Service and Support

Honeyguide incorporates chatbot technology, including a
virtual assistant, to enhance our customer service and support:

Chatbot Functionality: Chatbots are software applications that simulate human-like text or voice interactions on our website or via our customer service hotline. They enable communication between users and a machine through messages or voice commands and are designed to operate independently without human intervention. Utilizing a blend of pre-set scripts and machine learning algorithms, chatbots respond to natural language queries with information from their current knowledge base. In instances where a query presents unfamiliar concepts, the chatbot escalates the matter to a human operator for further assistance. Data Collection and Use: When interacting with our chatbot service, any Personal Information you provide is collected. We generate and store transcripts of your chat interactions for purposes such as quality control, customer service enhancement, fraud prevention, and security. These transcripts, along with the information you provide, are shared with and stored by our third-party service provider.

Honeyguide engages in online advertising and tracking
activities as follows:

Third-Party Advertisements: We may display ads and permit third-party companies to serve ads and gather information when you visit our website or use our services. These third parties may use data (like clickstream information, browser type, time/date, and ad interactions) to deliver targeted ads based on your interests and online activities. Data Collection Technologies: The collection tools include server logs, cookies, web beacons, tags, pixels, and mobile advertising IDs (e.g., Facebook cookies or Google's Advertising ID). Cross-device linking technology may be used to combine information from different browsers or devices you use. Do Not Track Signals and Browser Controls: Our system may not recognize browser "Do Not Track" signals. However, you can opt out of targeted advertising through certain Service Providers on our website. You can visit Network Advertising Initiative or About Ads for opt-out options in the US, or Your Ad Choices in Canada. Global Privacy Control Signal: If your browser signals 'global privacy control' for non-sharing of information for cross-contextual behavioral advertising, we will respect this setting, though it may impact the functionality and personalized ad experience on our site. Device-Specific Settings: Preferences set for advertising and tracking are specific to each device. Regional Opt-Out Rights: Residents in certain jurisdictions, like California, Virginia, and Colorado, have additional rights to opt out of cross-contextual behavioral advertising.
