Privacy Policy

Date: January 29, 2021

1. Introduction

Katmai Tech Inc. (referred to in this policy as “Katmai,” “we,” or “us”) provides a cloud-based 3D video chat software application to authorized users of its customers.

Katmai’s software offers users a 3D video chat experience in users’ web browsers without the need for virtual reality headsets. Katmai’s software delivers an immersive communication platform on laptop ordesktop computers with webcams. The audio spatialization is highlighted when using a headset; sound is processed to give the listener the impression of a sound source within a three-dimensional environment. Users can have group or private conversations in the same session by navigating their avatars to different areas or virtual rooms within a 3D environment. Screen sharing and on-demand conversations facilitate spontaneous work and social interactions.

Katmai is committed to protecting the privacy of its users, representatives of businesses with which we have relationships, and website visitors. Therefore, Katmai prepared this privacy policy to describe the kinds of personal information it collects from these individuals. This policy also discusses how Katmai uses and protects the personal information it collects, how it manages vendors that help process personal information, and how individuals can access and update personal information in Katmai’s records.

2. Personal Information We Collect

a. Personal Information We Collect from Users of Katmai’s Service

When we create an account for an individual user of Katmai’s service, we collect the user’s name and work email address. As users use the service, we collect and log certain kinds of information. In specific, we have access logs (i.e., HTTP requests to the Katmai web server are logged) and we log errors. While we do not analyze the usage of individual users in the ordinary course, it is possible to determine from these logs when (date and time) an individual user is using the service, for how long, and in what rooms.

b. Personal Information of Business Representatives

When we refer to “business card information” in this policy we are referring to:

  • Name
  • Work email address
  • Title
  • Company name
  • Postal address

When we market our services, we may collect business card information from individuals representing past, present, or potential customers. If we provide services to a customer, we may collect payment information from an individual. Likewise, when we have a past, present, or potential business relationship with a vendor or business partner, we may collect business card information from the vendor’s or partner’s representative.

We obtain business card information when the individual provides it to us. We may also receive business card information via email, phone, videoconference, or in-person communications. We may also collect business card information about a customer, partner, or vendor representative from publicly-available social media.
