INFORMATION WE COLLECT AND HOW IT IS COLLECTED
We collect the following information about you:
- Information that you have provided to us or one of our third-party suppliers, such as your name, email address, telephone number, passwords, postal address, date of birth, gender, and other personal information.
- Information you provide to us when you communicate with us as part of the Services offered on the Platform, such as when you call us, message us or email us.
- Information about you that you have made publicly available and which we use as part of the Services offered on the Platform.
- Information about you which we may have obtained from certain third parties. For example, Membership IDs and similar data.
You can decide not to provide certain personal information. However, if you choose not to provide it, you may not be able to use the Platform.
When you use the Platform, some information may also be automatically collected, such as:
- Information about other websites you have visited (for example, the address of a referring website) before using the Platform.
- Usage Information. We collect information about your interactions with our Platform such as the pages or content you view, your searches for Spots, how often, and other actions on the Platform.
- Information about your location and time zone. We use this information to provide our Services to you and offer you an improved user experience, to improve our Platform, and to send you information about products and services you may be interested in. When you use certain features of the Platform, we may collect information about your location as determined through data such as your IP address or mobile device’s GPS. Most mobile devices allow you to control or disable the use of location services for applications in the device’s settings menu. Spot2Nite may also collect this information even when you are not using the app if this connection is enabled through your settings or device permissions.
- We may collect log data and certain technical and device-specific information. That information includes, among other things: details about how you have used the Platform (including if you clicked on links to third party applications), IP address, hardware model, operating system version, unique device identifiers, crash data, cookie data, and mobile network information including your phone number.
- Payment Transaction Information. Spot2Nite may collect information related to your payment transactions through the Platform, including the payment instrument used, date and time, payment amount, payment instrument expiration date and billing postcode, email address, IBAN information, your address and other related transaction details. This information is necessary for the adequate performance of the contract between you and Spot2Nite and to allow the provision of the payment services.
- Other personal information from third parties. For example, information obtained when you use social media accounts.
Our Cookies Policy
We may also employ the use of anonymous identifiers, which are random strings of characters that are used for the same purposes as cookies on platforms, including certain mobile devices, where cookie technology is not available.
We also use other technologies with similar functionality to cookies, such as web beacons, pixels, mobile identifiers, and tracking URLs, to obtain log data. Web beacons are small, invisible graphic images that may be used on our Platform or in emails relating to our Services to collect certain information and monitor user activity on our Platform, such as to count visits and understand usage effectiveness. For example, our email messages may contain web beacons and tracking URLs to determine whether you have opened a certain message or accessed a certain link.
Whether we collect some or all of this information often depends on what type of device you are using and its settings. For example, different types of information are available depending on whether you are using a Mac or a PC, or an iPhone or an Android phone. To learn more about what information your device makes available to us, please check the policies of your device manufacturer or software provider.

SHARING & DISCLOSURE
We do not share your personal information with others except as indicated within this Policy or when we inform you and give you an opportunity to opt out of having your personal information shared.
We will share information we collect about you, including personal information, in the following ways:
- With third party service providers, agents, or contractors. We use other companies, agents or contractors (“Service Providers”) to perform services on our behalf or to assist us with providing our products and services to you. For example, we may engage Service Providers to process credit card transactions or other payment methods. Or, we may engage Service Providers to provide services, such as infrastructure and IT services, to provide customer service, to collect debts, and to analyze and enhance data (including data about users’ interactions with our service). These Service Providers may have access to your personal or other information in order to provide these functions. In addition, some of the information we request may be collected by third party providers on our behalf. We require our Service Providers to agree to take reasonable steps to keep the personal information that we provide to them secure. We do not authorize them to use or disclose your personal information, except in connection with providing their services.
- Parks. In order to provide our Services, we share your personal information with Parks you have booked, or with other third parties who carry out services on the Parks’ behalf.
- Sharing between Members and Parks. To help facilitate reservations, bookings or other interactions between Spot2Nite Members and Parks, we may need to share certain information, including personal information, with Parks, as it is necessary for the adequate performance of the contract between you and us, as follows:
- When you as a Spot2Nite Member submit a reservation or booking request, certain information about you is shared with the Park, including your profile, full name, the full name of any additional Guests, your cancellation history, and other information you agree to share. When your booking is confirmed, we will disclose additional information to assist with coordinating the reserved or booked service, like your phone number.
- When you as a Spot2Nite Member invite additional Spot2Nite Members and/or Guests to a booking, your full name, reservation dates, Offering details and address, and other related information will be shared with each additional Spot2Nite Member and/or Guest.
- We do not share your billing and payment information with other Spot2Nite Members.
- Affiliates. We may disclose your information to current or future affiliates or subsidiaries for research, marketing, and other purposes consistent with this Policy.

If you choose to include personal information (such as your email address, photo or other details) in forums and other interactive areas on the Platform, this may be viewed by others who use our Services. If you choose to participate in a forum, your IP address may be shared with forum moderators. Sometimes information you choose to share will be available to other users and in some cases may be publicly available (for example, where you share personal information as part of a review, photo submission or similar).
- Business transfers. We may engage in a merger, acquisition, bankruptcy, dissolution, reorganization, or similar transaction or proceeding that involves the transfer of the information described in this Policy. In such transactions, customer information is typically one of the business assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. If we are acquired by or merged with another company, if we sell or transfer a business unit or assets to another company, in the unlikely event of a bankruptcy proceeding, or as part of any other similar business transfer, you acknowledge that such transfers may occur.

LEGAL BASIS FOR PROCESSING THE INFORMATION
We rely on the following legal grounds to process your personal information:
- Consent. We may use your personal information as described in this Policy subject to your consent. To withdraw your consent, please contact us at email@example.com. You may also refrain from providing, or withdraw, your consent for cookies. Please see Your Rights and Choices below for more information on opt-outs.

We process information on behalf of our customers who have legitimate interests in operating their businesses.

In order to keep your personal information accurate and complete, you can log in to review and update your account information, including contact and billing information, via your account settings page. You may also contact us to request information about the personal data we have collected from you and to request the correction, modification or deletion of such personal information. We will do our best to honor your requests subject to any legal and contractual obligations. If you would like to make a request, cancel your account or request we delete or no longer use your account information to provide you Services, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or the address set forth at the end of this Policy. Subject to applicable law, we will retain and use your account information only as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes and enforce our agreements.

You may “opt out” of receiving marketing or promotional emails or messages from us at any time by following the opt-out links contained in the emails or following the instructions in the messages, or by accessing the Notifications settings in your Spot2Nite Account. Please note that it may take up to ten (10) business days to process your request. Please also note that if you opt out of receiving marketing communications from us, we may still need to contact you with important transactional information about your account and send you non-promotional, service-related emails that are not available for opt-out, such as emails about your account or our on-going business relations. For example, even if you opt-out of emails, we may still send you activity confirmations or fraud alerts. If you do not wish to receive any service-related emails from us, you have the option to deactivate your account.

- Additional Rights. Subject to local law, you may have additional rights under the laws of your jurisdiction regarding your personal data, such as the right to complain to your local data protection authority.
SECURITY AND STORAGE OF INFORMATION
We have taken reasonable steps to help protect the personal information we collect. These measures include using SSL encryption and two-factor authentication, and passwordless authentication. Unfortunately, no measures can be guaranteed to provide 100% security. Accordingly, we cannot guarantee the security of your information in all circumstances.
You should take steps to protect against unauthorized access to your device and account by, among other things, choosing a robust password that nobody else knows or can easily guess and keeping your login and password private. We are not responsible for any lost, stolen, or compromised passwords or for any activity on your account via unauthorized password activity.
We retain the personal data we collect for so long as reasonably necessary to fulfill the purposes for which the data was collected, to perform our contractual and legal obligations, and for any applicable statute of limitations periods for the purposes of bringing and defending claims. Alternatively, we may continue to use your personal information in anonymized form. When you close your account with us, we will generally delete your personal information. Sometimes, however, we may keep your personal information after you have closed your account. For example:
- We may retain personal information about how you have used our Platform in anonymized or aggregated form after you have closed your account with us so we can analyze how you have used our Platform and improve our users’ experience.
- We may also retain your personal information after you have closed your account so that we can send you information about products and services we think you may be interested in. You can “unsubscribe” to receiving such messages or tell us you are no longer interested.
- We may retain your personal information in order to protect our legal rights, or those of third party, or to comply with the law.
