WaitNot Privacy Policy

Last Updated: April 27, 2016

WaitNot strives to offer the visitors to its App and WaitNot.com, the many advantages of Internet technology and to provide an interactive and personalized experience. We may use Personally Identifiable Information about you (your name, e-mail address, street address, telephone number, etc.) subject to the terms of this privacy policy. Please note this policy applies only to information collected by WaitNot and does not impact information collected or used by WaitNot or its affiliates through other means.

 

How we gather information from users.

How we collect and store information depends on the page you are visiting, the activities in which you elect to participate and the services provided. When you sign up for or use our products, you voluntarily give us certain information. This can include your name, profile photo, comments, likes, the email address or phone number you used to sign up, and any other information you provide us. You can also choose to provide us with location data for an enhanced experience with WaitNot. Some pages may prompt you to provide this information, such as when you register for access to our app, or request certain features (e.g., posting to facebook, newsletters, reminders and other products). You may also provide information when you participate in sweepstakes and contests, rating activities, message boards and other interactive areas of our site.

You also may give us permission to access your information in other services. For example, when you link your Facebook account to WaitNot, it allows us to obtain information from those accounts (like your friends or contacts). The information we get from those services often depends on your settings or their privacy policies, so be sure to check what those are.

Like most Apps, WaitNot also collects information automatically and through the use of electronic tools that may or may not be transparent to our visitors. For example, we may use log data, device information, or "cookie" technology to name a few. As we adopt additional technology, we may also gather information through other means.

 

What we do with the information we collect.

We use the information we collect to provide our products to you and make them better, develop new products, and protect WaitNot and our users. Aggregated Information (information that does not personally identify you) may be used in many ways. As one example, we may combine information about your usage patterns with similar information obtained from other users to learn which pages are visited most or what features are most attractive. Aggregated Information may occasionally be shared with our advertisers and business partners, but cannot be used to contact you individually.

 

We also collect information to enhance your visit and deliver more individualized content and advertising. For example, we may use Personally Identifiable Information collected on WaitNot to communicate with you regarding our Terms of Service and Privacy Policy, or products and services offered by WaitNot. We may also use it  to help your friends and contacts find you on WaitNot. For example, if you sign up using a Facebook account, we may help your Facebook friends find your account on WaitNot when they first sign up. Or, we may allow people to search for your account on WaitNot using your email address.

We reserve the right to share this information with other WaitNot business units and affiliates and entities in which WaitNot has an ownership interest (collectively, "Affiliates"). This policy does not apply to any Affiliate's use of such information.

Personally Identifiable Information collected by WaitNot may also be used for other purposes including but not limited to site administration and troubleshooting. Certain third parties who provide technical support for the operation of our site (our Web hosting service or our newsletter provider, for example) may access such information.

As we continue to develop our business, we may sell, buy, merge or partner with other companies or businesses. In such transactions, user information may be among the transferred assets. We may also disclose your information in response to a court order, at other times when we believe we are reasonably required to do so by law, in connection with the collection of amounts you may owe to us, and/or whenever we deem it appropriate or necessary to give such information to law enforcement authorities. Please note we may not provide you with notice prior to disclosure in such cases.

 

Sale of Personally Identifiable Information.

We will not share the Personally Identifiable Information you provide with non-Affiliated advertisers.

 

Affiliated sites, linked sites and advertisements.

WaitNot expects its partners, advertisers and third-party affiliates to respect the privacy of our users. However, third parties, including our partners, advertisers, affiliates and other content providers accessible through our site, may have their own privacy and data collection policies and practices. For example, during your visit to our site you may link to, or view as part of a frame on a WaitNot page, certain content that is actually created or hosted by a third party. Also, through WaitNot.com you may be introduced to, or be able to access, information, Apps, advertisements, features, contests or sweepstakes offered by other parties. WaitNot is not responsible for the actions or policies of such third parties. You should check the applicable privacy policies of those third parties when providing information on a feature or page operated by a third party.

While on our site, our advertisers, promotional partners or other third parties may use cookies or other technology to attempt to identify some of your preferences or retrieve information about you. For example, some of our advertising is served by third parties and may include cookies that enable the advertiser to determine whether you have seen a particular advertisement before. Through features available on our site, third parties may use cookies or other technology to gather information. WaitNot does not control the use of this technology or the resulting information and is not responsible for any actions or policies of such third parties.

Please be careful and responsible whenever you are online. Should you choose to voluntarily disclose Personally Identifiable Information on our site, such as in message boards, chat areas or in advertising or notices you post, that information can be viewed publicly and can be collected and used by third parties without our knowledge and may result in unsolicited messages from other individuals or third parties. Such activities are beyond the control of WaitNot and this policy.
