Last Modified: July 15th, 2017

 

PocketInns, Inc. (“PocketInns,” or “we” or “us” or “our”) recognizes the need to protect the privacy of the personal information you provide to PocketInns with respect to your access and use of our website (www.pocketinns.com) (the “Website”) or through our mobile and web applications (the Website and such mobile and web applications being collectively referred to as the Platform).

 

Therefore, we have adopted this privacy policy (the “Privacy Policy”), which sets forth, among other things, the type of information that will be collected, the purpose and use of the collected information, and your rights with regard to the collected information. This Privacy Policy governs how we collect and use your personal information wherever you use our Platform. By accessing the Platform, you are consenting to the collection and the use of your information by us, but only to the extent described herein. Should you wish to revoke your consent, you may do so by contacting us, information on which is set out in the Privacy Policy below.

 

PocketInns may make modifications, deletions and/or additions to this Privacy Policy (“Changes”) at any time. Changes will be effective: (i) thirty (30) days after PocketInns provides notice of the Changes, whether such notice is provided through the Platform user interface, is sent to the email address associated with your account or otherwise; or (ii) when you opt-in or otherwise expressly agree to the Changes or a version of this Privacy Policy incorporating the Changes, whichever comes first.

 

Protection of Your Information

 

We are accountable for the information in our custody. Therefore, when we collect or use your information, we will utilize commercially reasonable safeguards to ensure its protection. It should be noted that no security procedure is currently 100% effective. Should any breach of your Personal Information occur, we will inform you as soon as reasonably possible, as required by applicable law.

We collect information at various points in the Platform to facilitate its use by our customers. Specifically, two types of information are collected:

We use Non-Personal Information to examine our traffic and to view how our customers use the Platform. This type of information will not allow you to be personally identified although we might be able to associate it with your account. For example, we use “cookies”, which contain only certain statistical information. For more information on cookies please find more information below.
