INTRODUCTION

 

We respect and uphold individual rights to privacy and the protection of personal information. We know how important it is to protect your personal information and want to make every customer experience safe and secure. In keeping with that goal, we have developed this Policy to explain our practices for the collection, use, and disclosure of your personal information.

 

For the purposes of this Policy, “personal information” means information about an identifiable individual, including, for example, name, home address, telephone number. We will only collect, use or disclose personal information in accordance with this Policy, or in accordance with laws applicable to the collection, use and disclosure of your personal information by us (“Applicable Privacy Laws”).

 

We have appointed a Privacy Officer who is responsible for our compliance with this Policy. Information on how to contact the Privacy Officer can be found below.

 

COLLECTION AND USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

 

We collect two types of information through our App: personal information and non-personal information. The types of information we collect depend on the nature of your interaction with us.

 

Personal information

 

We may collect personal information such as:

 

Your contact information – for example, Your name,email address and phone number for the purposes of becoming a ‘Driveway Host’ or a Driver searching for parking.

 

Your profile information – for example, a profile picture for your profile or Driveway photographs you upload, and other information you provide in your personal profile.

 

Non-personal information

 

Non-personal information does not identify you as an individual. For example:

 

We may collect certain non-personal data when you visit our Website, (parkingmate.us) such as the type of browser you are using or the referring URL; or

 

We may collect and summarize customer information in a non-personal, aggregate format for statistical and research purposes. We may, for example, summarize our data to determine that a certain percentage of users rent their Driveways in the New York region.

 

You may choose not to provide us with your personal information. However, if you make this choice we may not be able to provide you with the service, or information that you requested. For example, we require your email address and phone number in order to verify your account, which is necessary so that notifications may be sent to you electronically. Should you no longer wish to receive notifications from Parking Mate LLC when you receive a message from another Parking Mate LLC user. Parking Mate LLC will not send you notifications after your account is deleted.

 

USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

 

We may use your personal information for a number of different business purposes, for example to:

Express Consent

 

Sometimes you will be asked to give your express consent to our collection, use or disclosure of personal information – for example, by being asked to check a box to indicate your consent to receive marketing communications.

 

Implied Consent

 

Other times, you may provide your implied consent to our collection, use or disclosure of personal information when we can reasonably conclude that you have given consent by some action you have taken or an action you have decided not to take. Generally, this occurs where the purpose for the use of your personal information would be reasonably apparent to you – for example, when you provide us with personal information through forms to populate your Driveway Host profile, You provide us with implied consent to publish that information for other users of the App to view.
