This Policy applies to information we collect through the Platform and when you interact with our advertising and applications on third-party websites and services, if those applications or advertising include links to this policy. This Policy does not apply to information collected by: (a) us offline or through any other means, including on any other website operated by Company or any third party (including our affiliates and subsidiaries); or (b) any third party (including our affiliates and subsidiaries), including through any application or content (including advertising) that may link to or be accessible from or on the Website
As further described below, when you use or otherwise access the Platform and use our Services, we may collect information in multiple ways, including when you provide information directly to us, and when we passively collect information from your browser or device.
We collect information from you (including, but not limited to, your name, email address, and location) when you voluntarily provide such information, such as when you contact us with inquiries, respond to one of our surveys, provide us with feedback, register for access to the Platform, or use certain Services.
You may also provide us with information relating to third parties including without limitation, names, email addresses, and phone numbers of your contacts (collectively, “Third-Party Data”), when you provide us information about third parties, such as suggesting an auction or service to a friend or otherwise.
We collect this information for the purposes described below in the section entitled, Our Use of Information Collected. While you are under no obligation to directly provide us with such information, should you choose to withhold such information, we may not be able to provide you with some or all of the Services or all areas of the Platform.
Our Platform may include facilitating event planning, deliver the services purchased by you, sharing photos, media, online chats and message boards. Please remember that any information that is disclosed in these areas may be publically disclosed and becomes shared information for both us and other users that are part of your interaction. Please be considerate and respectful of others rights and ownership of copyrighted material while using the collaborating with vendors on the platform. We reserve the right, but do not have the obligation, to review and monitor such posting or any other content on our Services, and to remove posting or content that may be viewed as inappropriate or offensive to others.
When you interact with the Platform, we automatically receive and store certain information from devices that you use to access the Platform. This information, including for example device identifiers and MAC addresses, is collected passively using various technologies, and includes the type of internet browser or mobile device you use, any website from which you have come to the Platform, your operating system, and may include location data through an IP address that identifies the city and state where you logged into the Platform or your precise geo-location if you have permitted your mobile device to provide that information to us. WeInvite may store such information itself or such information may be included in databases owned and maintained by WeInvite affiliates, agents or service providers.
In an ongoing effort to better understand and serve the users of the Platform, WeInvite often conducts research on its customer demographics, interests and behavior based on information we collect. We may de-identify and/or aggregate the information collected through the Platform for research purposes or any other purposes, and we may share this data with our affiliates, agents, business Partners, or other third parties.
When you use the Platform to plan, service, or attend an event, the Services may request that you provide your city or town and state of residence. Please keep in mind that other users of the Platform may be able to view your city or town and state of residence in connection with your event, if it is made available within WeInvite’s Platform. We may also use your location information in an aggregate way, as described above in the "Aggregated Data" section.
When you interact with the Platform, we try to make that experience simple and meaningful. When you visit our Platform, our web server sends a cookie to your computer or mobile device. Cookies are small pieces of information that are issued to your computer or mobile device when you visit a website or access or use a mobile application, and that store and sometimes track information about your use of the Platform. A number of cookies we use last only for the duration of your web or application session and expire when you close your browser or exit the application. Other cookies are used to remember you when you return to the Platform and will last longer.
Some of the cookies used by the Platform are set by us, and some are set by third parties who are delivering services on our behalf.
Most web and mobile device browsers automatically accept cookies but, if you prefer, you can change your browser to prevent that or to notify you each time a cookie is set. You can also learn more about cookies by visiting www.allaboutcookies.org, which includes additional useful information on cookies and how to block cookies using different types of browsers or mobile devices.
You may also consult the "Help" section of your browser for more information (e.g., Internet Explorer; Google Chrome; Mozilla Firefox; or Apple Safari). You can also manage the use of Flash technologies, including cookies and local storage objects with the Flash management tools available at Adobe's website. Please note that by blocking any or all cookies, you may not have access to certain features or offerings of the Platform.
If you are accessing our Platform through a mobile device, you can also update your privacy settings on your device by setting the “Limit Ad Tracking” and Diagnostics and Usage setting property located in the settings screen of your Apple iPhone or iPad, or by resetting your Android ID through apps that are available in the Play Store. You can also limit information collection by uninstalling the App on your device and you can use the standard uninstall process available as part of your device for this purpose.
You may also have the option of posting your activities to Social Networking Services when you access content through the Platform (for example, you may post to Facebook that you performed an activity on the Platform); you acknowledge that if you choose to use this feature, your friends, followers, and subscribers on any Social Networking Services you have enabled will be able to view such activity.
We may also use the information collected from the “Information We Collect” section, such as device identifiers and MAC addresses, to associate users’ activities, customize content, or tailor advertising to those users across different devices and browsers (for instance, tablets, mobile devices and applications, and websites).
WeInvite may use the information collected through the Platform to contact you about services we believe will be of interest to you. In some cases, we will seek your permission. In each marketing communication we send you will contain instructions permitting you to "opt-out" of receiving future marketing communications. In addition, if at any time you wish not to receive any future marketing communications, or you wish to have your name deleted from our mailing lists, please contact us as indicated below. If you opt out of receiving marketing communications or other information, we think may interest you, as discussed below, we may still send you emails about your account or any Services you have requested or received from us.
We may also use data collected through the Platform to send communications relating to the Platform and Services, in accordance with applicable laws. For example, we may send periodic emails to registered users of the Platform relating to their recent interactions with the Platform, such as donating, bidding in an auction, participating in an event, or other activity. Also, if you use any feature of the Platform permitting you to communicate with third parties (such as to communicate with a provider of services or a partner), either by submitting Third-Party Data to the Platform or otherwise permitting the Services to automatically access Third-Party Data in your possession, you acknowledge and agree that you have the authority of the relevant third party for us to access and use the relevant Third-Party Data and that you have notified these third parties and informed them how their information is collected and used by WeInvite to provide the Services. We reserve the right to identify you as the person who has made the referral in any messages that are sent to them. We may use Third-Party Data to (1) contact such third party using the Third-Party Data provided, and/or (2) provide you with an editable template message designed to facilitate communication between you and such third party through the Services. In addition to sending the foregoing communications, we may also send reminders or related messages to you and to third parties on your behalf from time to time where permitted by applicable law. In each case, any such communications sent to third parties using Third-Party Data will provide a means to "opt-out" of receiving further communication of the same nature. You shall indemnify and defend us against any third party claims that our contacting such third party broke any law, rule or regulation.
Mobile Services: If you access the Platform through a mobile device, you agree that we may communicate with you regarding WeInvite by SMS, MMS, text message, or other electronic means to your mobile device. In the event you change or deactivate your mobile telephone number, you agree to promptly update your WeInvite account information to ensure that your messages are not misdirected. Please note that your wireless service carrier’s standard charges, data rates, and other fees may apply where you access the Platform through a mobile device. In addition, downloading, installing, or using certain Services on a mobile device may be prohibited or restricted by your carrier, and not all Services may work with all carriers or devices. By using the Services on a mobile device, you agree that we may communicate with you regarding WeInvite by SMS, MMS, text message, or other electronic means to your mobile device. In the event you change or deactivate your mobile telephone number, you agree to promptly update your WeInvite account information to ensure that your messages are not misdirected.
There are certain circumstances in which we may share information collected through the Platform with certain third parties without further notice to you, as set forth below:
As we develop our business, we might sell or buy businesses or assets. In the event of a corporate sale, merger, reorganization, dissolution, similar event, or steps taken in anticipation of such events (e.g., due diligence in a transaction), all collected information including your user information may be part of the transferred assets.
WeInvite, like many businesses, sometimes hires other companies to perform certain business-related functions on its behalf, and we may provide access to or share your information with these companies, so they can perform services for us. Examples of such functions include marketing, mailing information, data storage, security, fraud preventions, payment processing, legal services, and maintaining databases. In addition, if you request information regarding certain services, we may communicate your information with third parties who provide those services.
We may share your information in the event that you consent to the sharing of your information. For example, we may partner with third party organizations, service providers, Organizers and Partners to arrange for services. If you consent to our delivering your contact information to a specific partner, we may share, with the partner organization, your name, email address and other information you’ve provided in connection with your event. Asking us to provide your information to a third party or requesting more information on a third party through our platform means that you consent to delivery of your information to such third party.
We may use third-party web analytics services on our Platform, such as those of Google Analytics. These service providers use the sort of technology previously described in the “Cookies and other electronic technologies” section to help us analyze how users use the Services, including by noting the third-party website from which you arrive, and provide certain features to you. The information (including your IP address) collected by the technology will be disclosed to or collected directly by these service providers, who use the information to evaluate your use of the Services. This information may be used to place interest-based advertisements on the Platform. This may result in you seeing advertisements for our Platform when you visit other websites. To prevent Google Analytics from using your information for analytics, you may install the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on by clicking here.
We may use third-party advertising technologies that allow for the delivery of relevant content and advertising on our Platform, as well as on other websites you visit. The ads may be based on various factors such as the content of the page you are visiting, information you enter such as your age and gender, your searches, demographic data, user-generated content, and other information we collect from you. These ads may be based on your current activity or your activity over time and across other websites and online services and may be tailored to your interests.
Also, third parties whose products or services are accessible or advertised on our Platform may place cookies or other tracking technologies on your computer, mobile phone, or other device to collect information about your use of the website as discussed above. We also allow other third parties (e.g., ad networks and ad servers such as Google Analytics, DoubleClick and others) to serve tailored ads to you on our website, other sites, and in other applications, and to access their own cookies or other tracking technologies on your computer, mobile phone, or other device you use to access the website. We may provide our customer information (such as a hashed version of your email addresses) to service providers, who may “match” this information in de-identified form to cookies (or mobile ad identifiers) and other proprietary IDs, in order to target or “retarget” you with ads when you visit other websites and mobile applications. (You may opt out of many of these service providers as described in the next paragraph.)
If you receive tailored advertising on your computer through a web browser, you can learn more about such tailored browser advertising and how you can generally control cookies from being put on your computer to deliver tailored advertising or for US based advertising either: (i) the Network Advertising Initiative’s Consumer Opt-Out link or (ii) the Digital Advertising Alliance’s Consumer Opt-Out link to opt-out of receiving tailored advertising from companies that participate in those programs. To opt out of Google Analytics for display advertising or customize Google display network ads, you can visit the Google Ads Settings page.
Please note that to the extent advertising technology is integrated into our website or other websites that you visit, you may still receive advertisements even if you opt-out. In that case, the advertising will not be tailored to your interests. Also, we do not control any of the above opt-out links or whether any particular company chooses to participate in these opt-out programs. We are not responsible for any choices you make using these mechanisms or the continued availability or accuracy of these mechanisms.
Our Platform are not designed for use by individuals under the age of 18. If you are under the age of 18, please do not use the Platform and/or submit any information through the Platform. If you have reason to believe that a child under the age of 18 has provided personal information to WeInvite through the Platform, please contact us at Legal@WeInvite.com, and we will delete that information from our databases to the extent required by law.
WeInvite has implemented technical and organizational security measures to protect the Personal Data provided via the Platform from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. For example, limiting access to information only to employees and authorized service providers who need to know such information for the purposes of this Privacy Notice. However, no Internet or email transmission is ever fully secure or error free. In particular, email sent to or from the Platform may not be secure. Therefore, you should take special care in deciding what information you send to us via email. Please keep this in mind when disclosing any information to WeInvite via the Internet.
Do Not Track (“DNT”) is a privacy preference that users can set in certain web browsers. We do not recognize or respond to browser-initiated DNT signals, as the Internet industry is currently still working toward defining exactly what DNT means, what it means to comply with DNT, and a common approach to responding to DNT. To learn more about Do Not Track, you can do so here.
We will only retain the information to the extent permitted or required by applicable laws.
When you delete your account, it may take up to 90 days from the beginning of the deletion process to remove your information from our systems and records. Information or social posts or messages may remain on the Website after you delete your account.
You may access and correct certain information about you by visiting the “Account Settings” portion of our Platform. You may also request in writing copies of personal information about you held by us. If that information is inaccurate, please let us know and we will endeavor to make the necessary amendments, erase, or block the relevant information as you request.
If you are a California resident, California law may provide you with additional rights regarding our use of your personal information. However, please know we do not currently meet the requirements for the application of the CCPA
Under California law, California residents may have the right to request in writing from businesses with whom they have an established business relationship: (a) a list of the categories of personally identifiable information—such as name, email, and mailing address, and the type of services provided to the customer—that a business has disclosed to third parties (including affiliates that are separate legal entities) during the immediately preceding calendar year for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes; and (b) the name and address of all such third parties. To request the above information, please email us at Legal@WeInvite.com with a reference to California Disclosure Information. Please note that we are only required to respond to each customer once per calendar year.
California and Delaware law require us to indicate whether we honor “Do Not Track” settings in your Web browser concerning targeted advertising. At this time, there is no worldwide uniform or consistent industry standard or definition for responding to, processing, or communicating “Do Not Track” signals. Thus, like many other websites and online services, we do not currently respond to any “Do Not Track” browser requests.
We have implemented measures designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration, and disclosure. All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers behind firewalls. Any payment transactions are handled with Authorize.net (third-party payment gateway system). Please refer to their website (Authorize.net) for details.
The safety and security of your information also depends on you. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password for access to certain parts of our Website, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone. We urge you to be careful about giving out information in public areas of the Website like message boards. The information you share in public areas may be viewed by any user of the Website.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information transmitted to our Website. Any transmission of personal information is at your own risk. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Website.
