Conway Hall is currently participating in a trial by Google called Project Beacon.

The beacon transmits a one-way code that’s unique to our venue. When a user visits Conway Hall with location services on their device turned on, their phone can use the beacon signal in order to understand that it’s on our site. The beacon itself does not collect or store any information. It only provides a helpful one-way signal to customers’ phones.

Google may ask users who’ve visited the venue to contribute reviews, such as star ratings, answers to quick questions, photos, and more. Once enough visitors’ phones have detected visits to the site, Google is able to turn on aggregated features such as Popular times for the venue Place Page.

The data shown is based on anonymous, aggregated visit statistics. It’s not possible to tie a particular visit back to a particular individual. Best practices are in place to ensure the privacy of individual users.
