gatherologie™ Privacy Policy

We, gatherologie, Inc., our affiliates and subsidiaries (collectively, “gatherologie”“we”“us”), are committed to respecting your privacy. Your ability to make informed choices about the uses of your information is important to us. This section explains how gatherologie collects, uses and stores information and data that you share with us when you visit our Services. If not otherwise defined in this Privacy Policy, capitalized terms have the meaning given to them in our Terms & Conditions of Service, which you may read at Terms of Service (the “Terms”).

If you have any comments or questions about our privacy practices, please contact us at info@gatherologie.com

As used in this policy, “Personal Information” means information that can be directly associated with a specific person or entity such as a name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, information about activities directly linked to a person, such as that person’s location or financial information. You are not required by law to provide us with any such information, but if you do not provide us with such information you may not be able to use some or all of the Services.

If you do not agree to any of the provisions as set hereunder in this Privacy Policy, you have no right to use the Services. This Privacy Policy should be read together with the Terms and together they constitute the entire agreement between you and us.

This Privacy Policy applies to any and all Personal Information we may collect or receive including without limitations through our Services, emails and/or by using any of our Services.

This Privacy Policy may be updated from time to time and therefore we ask you to check back periodically to read the most updated Privacy Policy. Your continued use of the Services shall be deemed to be your continued acceptance of the terms of this Privacy Policy, as amended.

  1. Information We Collect. When you sign up for or use our Services, gatherologie collects your name, your telephone number, your email address, and information about your activities and interest. gatherologie may also ask you to share a profile picture, including pictures of the Space and/or Service you may be booking and a short description or biography that introduces you and the Space and/or Service to the gatherologie community. We call this information “Personal Information” because it can, either alone or in conjunction with other information, be used to identify you.

When creating a gatherologie Account, or logging back into our Services, you may do so through “Facebook Login” or through Gmail. If you choose to log in through Facebook, gatherologie will receive Personal Information about you from Facebook. Please check the policies of such social network in order to understand what information we receive at https://www.facebook.com/policy.php.

In addition, when you use our Services, certain information may be automatically gathered about your computer, mobile device, operating system, IP address, including your location. We call this “Site Visit Information.”

We use tools including, without limitation, Google Analytics to collect information about your use of the Services. Google Analytics collects information such as how often Users visit the Services, what pages they visit when they do so, and what other sites they used prior to coming to the Services. Google Analytics collects only the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit the Services, rather than your name or other identifying information. Google’s ability to use and share information collected by Google Analytics about your visits to this Website is restricted by the Google Analytics Terms of Use located at http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/us.html and the Google Privacy Policy located at http://www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/..

We also collect certain de-identified information, such as your browsing history on the Site, descriptions of the Spaces or Service you wish to provide or to rent, and any information regarding your interactions with any Users through the Services.

  1. How We Use Information. Except as expressly set forth herein, we will not sell or lease your Personal Information except as provided for in this Privacy Policy. In addition, we may use Personal Information internally – for example, to help improve our services, to make gatherologie more useful, to customize gatherologie and personalize its content for you.

We display the information that you wish to share publically (including photographs and descriptions of Spaces and/or Services and including any personal description that you provide), and link that information to the Spaces and/or that you wish to rent or offer for rent on our Services.

When you advertise your Space and/or Service, and/or when you post a request to rent a Space and/or Service on the Services, we may use the information you post in order to connect you with an appropriate Planner and/or Lister, or to provide you with other notifications. We may share information with trusted third parties carefully selected to improve the functionality of our Services, and advertisements. We call these third parties “Partners.”

Finally, we reserve the right to use the information you share with us in a de-identified and aggregated form to improve the quality of our Services, and to better understand our customer base. We may also share de-identified and anonymous information with our Partners, without restriction, on commercial terms that we can determine in our sole discretion.

  1. Payment Card Information. When you submit your payment details, these details will be transferred to our Payment Service Providers and your payment data will be collected and processed by them. You should make sure that you are aware of our current Payment Service Provider’s privacy policy available at https://www.paypal.com/webapps/mpp/ua/privacy-full, which is different from our own, to ensure that you are comfortable with how they will process your personal data before you make a payment. We will share your credit card details, name and address information with our Payment Service Providers only to the extent necessary for the purposes of processing payments you make via our Services and dealing with complaints and queries relating to such payments. Your credit or debit card information is never shared with gatherologie, and at no point in any transaction do we have access to that data.
  1. When you visit our Site, we automatically collect the name of the website you visited from (called the “referring page”) and the name of the website you chose to visit immediately after ours (called the “exit page”), and information about other websites you have recently visited. This information is used to improve our website, and it cannot be used to personally identify you. gatherologie does not honor the “Do Not Track” settings available on most browsers. When our website detects the Do Not Track signal from your browser, it will still collect referring and exit page information and other information when you visit our website.
  2. How we Protect Information. We implement generally accepted industry standards to maintain the safety of your Personal Information when you enter, submit, or access your Personal Information and once we receive it. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. We will delete any information provided to us by a user upon the receipt of a written (including via email) request by such user. We cannot restore information once it has been deleted.
  3. When you share feedback about Listers, Planners, Spaces, Services, or other topics on the Services, please remember that any information disclosed in this Space or Service may be automatically made public, and gatherologie does not treat this posted information as Personal Information
  4. A Cookie is a small piece of text that is sent to your computer when you visit a website. gatherologie uses Cookies to help personalize your gatherologie experience. A “persistent” Cookie may be used to help save your settings and customizations across visits. Also, if you log into the Services, the persistent Cookie will be used to recognize you as a prior user so you will not need to log in each time you use gatherologie. Most Web browsers are initially configured to accept Cookies, but you may be able to change this setting on your browser so that it either refuses all Cookies or informs you when a website is sending you a Cookie. Please note that some features of gatherologie may not function properly when Cookies are disabled or removed.
  5. Third Party Sites. Portions of the Service may contain links to third party websites. The Services may also provide you with links to access the sites of third party vendors or retailers. We have no control over third-party sites or services, and all use of third-party sites or services is at your own risk. gatherologie cannot accept responsibility for the privacy policies of any such third party sites. gatherologie is not responsible for content available by means of such third party sites. gatherologie does not endorse any products offered by third parties and we urge our users to exercise caution in using third-party services.
  6. gatherologie may send you marketing and other electronic communications if you opt-in to receive such communications by registering on our Services. You may unsubscribe from these messages at any time. However, please note that we reserve the right to send you service related communications, including service announcements and administrative messages, relating either to your account or to your transactions on our Services, without offering you the opportunity to opt out of receiving them unless you cancel your account.
  7. gatherologie does not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13. In the event you become aware that an individual under the age of 13 has enrolled without parental permission, please advise us immediately by emailing use at info@gatherologie.com
  8. Updating, Reviewing or Correcting Information. You may update, review or correct your gatherologie profile information at any time by e-mailing us at info@gatherologie.com. We will retain your information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you services. If you wish to cancel your account or request that we no longer use your information, please contact us at info@gatherologie.com. Although we will remove your data from our active systems, we may retain your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
  9. Transfer of Your Information.

We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your Personal Information. This does not include trusted third parties who assist us in operating our Services, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential and to not use it. In providing the Services, we may share you information with subcontractors and other partners that are located in countries other than the United States. All our subcontractors and other partners will be subject to contractual obligations limiting their use of your Personal Information. All our subcontractors will be subject to non-disclosure and non-use obligations. Nevertheless, some countries may have levels of protection of personal and other information which are not as high as in your country of residence or business.

We will fully cooperate with any law enforcement authorities or court order requesting or directing us to disclose the identity or behavior of any user suspected to have engaged in illegal behavior and thereby 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 user information may be provided to other parties for analytics, trends study, or other uses.

We may transfer our databases containing information if we sell our business or part of it. We may share Personal Information with our corporate affiliates or disclose it as part of, or during negotiations of, any merger, sale of company assets or acquisition. By providing such information, you expressly consent to such transfer and use, including transfers outside of the jurisdiction in which the information was provided.

  1. We may update this Privacy Policy from time to time – we encourage you to review it periodically.
