What data do we collect?
i. Personal Data
When a User contacts us by email, through a Website form, or when completing a purchase, User data (such as their name, company, email, etc.) are typically requested and provided.
ii. Data inserted by Users
By using some of our Services (such as the floorplans, seating, SMSs, the Check-in app etc. ) Users typically insert data that include certain Personally Identifiable Information ("PII") such as names, email addresses, mobile phone numbers etc. Users may also insert other non-Personally Identifiable Information such as gender, date of birth, job title and so on.
iii. Information related to the use of our Services
Our servers automatically track certain information about how our Users interact with our Services ("Log Data"). Log Data include information such as the Users' Internet Protocol (IP) address, browser type, operating system, the web page visited before accessing our Services, the links clicked while using our Services and so on.
iv. User Device Information
We also track our Users' device info while using our Services, such as the device identifier, user settings and operating system.
v. Location Information
We may also collect and store information about our Users' location by converting IP addresses into a rough geo-location or by accessing their device's GPS coordinates or coarse location if the location services on their device is enabled. We may use location information to improve and personalize our services to our Users. If Users do not want us to collect location information from their devices, they may disable that feature, though our Services may not subsequently work properly.
