  1. How We Use and Share Information We Collect

We use information we collect about our users and others, including Personal Information, for the following purposes:

We do not sell your Personal Information to third parties for purposes of advertising, soliciting, or telemarketing.  As noted in Section 6 below, we may share aggregated or anonymous information about our users, and other information that does not identify any particular individual, without restriction.  With regard to Personal Information we collect or that you provide, we may disclose such information as described in this Privacy Policy, including:

  1. Your Choices Regarding Your Information

We provide you with choices regarding your Personal Information that you provide to us.  Our Service has certain features to provide you with control over your information, namely:

Opt-out:  As noted above, we may send communications to you about our own or third-parties’ goods and services that may be of interest to you or relevant to the event you are planning through our Service.  If you do not wish to receive such marketing communications from us, you will be able to opt-out of such emails by changing your preferences in your account or by following the instructions for opting-out that appear at the bottom of our marketing emails.  Please note, however, that you will not be able to opt-out of certain communications we must send to you in order to provide our Service such as emails confirming transactions, emails notifying you about changes to our Service, or emails regarding changes to the event you are planning using our Service.  In addition, even if you opt-out of our marketing emails, we may still have to use and share your Personal Information as permitted by this Privacy Policy or as may be required by law.  Subject to the terms of our Privacy Policy, we will take commercially reasonable efforts to process your opt-out requests within 48 to 72 hours of our receipt of the same.

Account Information:  You will be permitted to access your account (with an established user name and password) in order to change information you have provided in your account or even delete your account.  For example, you will be able to change your email address, phone number(s), or mailing address.  Please note, if you delete your account or any Personal Information that is necessary for us to provide our Service to you, then we may not be able to continue to provide our Service to you or other users who may be involved in the planning of your event such as a Planner.    In some instances, it might be impossible for us to delete all of your information completely because of data backups and records of deletions.  

In addition, if you request deletion of your account or any Personal Information, we will take reasonable steps to verify your identity which may include requiring you to supply government or other identification or verifying your name, e-mail address, or other account information.  We may also not accommodate a request to delete or change information if we cannot verify your identity or if we believe the change would violate any law or legal requirement or cause the information to be incorrect.  Also, certain of your information may be exempt from deletion requests in some circumstances such as if we need to keep processing your information for our legitimate interests, to comply with legal obligations, or if we need to investigate fraud or other issues in connection with our Service.

Regarding any aggregated and anonymized information as described in Section 6 below, you will not be able to request any changes to or deletion of any de-identified, anonymous, or aggregated data from our databases.

  1. Aggregated and Anonymized Information

We may at times aggregate or anonymize (e.g., de-identify) any information collected through our Service.  Such anonymized information will no longer be able to be used to identify you or any other user or individual.  We may therefore use such aggregated or anonymized information for any purpose, including but not limited to, for our own research and marketing purposes, or for sharing with any third parties at our discretion, such as promotional sponsors or potential partners.

  1. Our Community-Based Features

Our Service offers some community-based features which will permit you to interact with other users such as by engaging in conversations with other users, starting or joining community-based discussions, posting content, suggesting a new community (which will require pre-approval by us), and liking and un-liking posts by other users.  Please note that any information you provide or post through our community-based features may be read, collected, and used by others who have access to them.  We do not have an obligation to monitor the content of messages sent using our Service or community-based features, however, we reserve the right to do so in our discretion and to make sure any content complies with our Terms of Service.  Please be cautious about any information you submit in our community-based features.  For example, do not post any personal information you do not want others to see or you may choose to use a username that does not disclose your personal identity.  Please also be advised that if you do post or share anything in our community-based features, it may be impossible for us or you to remove all instances of the same, for example, if someone else has taken a screenshot of your posting.

  1. Third-Party Links

Our Service may contain links to other third-party apps, websites, or services (“Third-Party Services”).  Please be advised that our Privacy Policy does not govern or control these Third-Party Services in any way or the privacy practices of such Third-Party Services.  Should you visit any of these Third-Party Services by clicking a link to them on our Service, the privacy policies of these Third-Party Services will govern the collection and use of your information.  We are therefore not responsible for these Third-Party Services’ privacy practices or any of the content or information provided through their services.  We therefore encourage you to read the privacy policy of any Third-Party Service to see how they will handle your information.

  1. Children’s Privacy

Our Service is not intended for use by anyone under the age of 13, and in fact, is not intended for use by minors under the age of 18.  If we become aware that anyone under age 13 has submitted Personal Information to us as defined in the U.S. Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act without valid parental consent, we will take reasonable steps to delete it as soon as possible.  We also do not knowingly collect or process data from EEA residents under the age of 16 without parental consent.  If we become aware that any EEA resident under the age of 16 has submitted Personal Information to us, we will take reasonable steps to delete it as soon as possible.

  1. Data Security and Retention

We use a variety of technical, physical, and administrative measures intended to keep your Personal Information secure from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration, and/or disclosure.  For example, we use Secure Sockets Layer (“SSL”) throughout our Service to establish encrypted connections and access to accounts requires passwords and/or two-factor authentication.  In addition, all information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers behind firewalls.

The safety and security of your Personal Information also largely depends on you as a user of our Service.  Because our Service requires registered users to create unique identifiers such as their user ID and password, you are responsible for keeping your user ID and password information confidential.  You should not therefore share your user ID or password information with anyone.  We are not responsible for any loss of information caused by our users’ failure to maintain the confidentiality of their user ID and/or password.  

If our Service permits you to post information in areas accessible or viewable by other users, or if it permits you to message other users such as event Planners or event Vendors, we urge you to be careful about the information you post in such areas or information you provide in such messages.  You should also avoid sharing computers or devices that you use to access our Service and be sure to log off the Service when you are not using it.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information over the Internet is not completely secure at all times.  Although we do our best to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee the security of such Personal Information transmitted through our Service at all times.  You therefore acknowledge that any transmission of such information is completely at your own risk.  We are not responsible for the circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained in our Service.

We will retain your information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you with our Service.  If you no longer want to use our Service, you may close your account.  However, after closing your account, we may need to retain and use your information, including Personal Information, as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
