We collect information from you when you register on our mobile applications or website (together, the “Platform”), and when you conduct a transaction. If you visit our Platform but you are not a registered individual who provides on-demand babysitting and other services or a registered person seeking such services, we do not collect any personally identifiable information about you. [CONFIRM] When registering or using our site, as appropriate, you may be asked to enter your: name, e-mail address, mailing address, phone number or credit card information.
In addition to information that you provide us voluntarily, The Company may collect aggregate information in the form of IP addresses. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the Web. Web servers, the computers that “serve up” Web pages, automatically identify your computer by its IP address. When you request a page from the Platform, our servers log your IP address. We do not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable, so although your session will be logged, you will remain anonymous to us.
Use of Your Information
The Company uses the information we collect to improve and personalize your experience on our Platform, and to allow us to better respond to your individual needs. We will also use your information to process transactions, although your information, whether public or private, will not be sold, exchanged, transferred, or given to any other company for any reason whatsoever, without your consent, other than for the express purpose of delivering the services requested. We use return email addresses to answer the email that we receive, and we may occasionally use such email addresses to send you other information. We may use information for internal marketing analysis, for example, to assess trends among our users or to measure the amount of traffic to our websites. We may also share non-personal information with others, such as advertisers, in aggregate anonymous form, which means that the information will not contain any personally identifiable information about you. We may use your personal information in order to respond to your queries and requests and to manage transactions such as credit card payments for our transaction fees. The personal information you provide may be used by an authorized vendor to fulfill that transaction. We may also use your personal information in order to communicate with you about our services and those of our subsidiaries, affiliates, and parent companies and any of their related businesses.
We may arrange for selected organizations to send you marketing and promotional information that may be of interest to you. In such circumstances your personal information may be disclosed to these organizations who will agree to be bound by the terms of this privacy statement. We will obtain your permission before we send you any such communications.
We may disclose your personal information if permitted by law or required to do so by law or where we believe such action is necessary in order to protect or defend our interests or the interests of users of the website. In the event of a sale, merger, consolidation, change in control, transfer of substantial assets, reorganization or liquidation, we may transfer, sell, or assign to third parties information concerning your relationship with us, including without limitation, personally identifiable information that you provide and other information concerning your relationship with us. We may transfer your personal information to third parties under confidentiality obligations when the performance of any service in relation to the activities above is sub-contracted (e.g. the administration of a marketing campaign).
We take reasonable precautions to keep your personal information secure. We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information when you place an order or enter, submit, or access your personal information. We offer the use of a secure server. All supplied sensitive/credit information is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted into our Payment gateway providers database only to be accessible by those authorized with special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential. After a transaction, your private information (credit cards, social security numbers, financials, etc.) will not be kept on file for more than 60 days.
No transmission of data over the internet is guaranteed to be completely secure. It may be possible for third parties not under the control of the Company to intercept or access transmissions or private communications unlawfully. While we strive to protect your personal information, neither the Company nor any of our service providers can ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us over the internet. Any such transmission is done at your own risk.
Information that you post on or through the public areas of our website (e.g., chat rooms, bulletin boards and discussion groups) are generally accessible to, and may be collected and used by, others and may result in unsolicited messages or other contact from others. Users of the website are encouraged to exercise caution when providing personal information about themselves in public or interactive areas.
Sharing Information With Third Parties
We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information. This does not include trusted third parties who assist us in operating the Platform, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others rights, property, or safety. However, non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.
Other Sites & Links
The Platform may contain links or references to other websites outside of our control. Please be aware that we have no control over these sites and our privacy statement does not apply to these sites.
