    In the course of using the Services, you may provide us with “Personally Identifiable Information”. This refers to information about you that can be used to contact or identify you, and information on your use of, and activities through, our Services that may be connected with you (“PII”). PII that we collect may include, but is not limited to, your first and last name, password, mobile number, email address, billing information, vehicle information including license plate number, details regarding any transaction you make or action you take using the Services, and information voluntarily given to us by you.

    1. Log Data. Our servers automatically record information about how Users (both account holders and non-account holders) use our Services. This information, referred to as “Log Data,” may include, but is not limited to, your computer’s Internet Protocol address, browser type, operating system, the web page you were visiting before you accessed our Services, the pages or features of our Services that you browsed and the time spent on those pages or features, search terms, the links on our Services that you clicked, and statistics related to your use of the Services. We use Log Data to administer the Services and to analyze (or have third parties analyze) the Log Data to improve, customize, and enhance our Services by expanding their features and functionality and tailoring them to our users’ needs and preferences.
    2. Cookies. Like many websites, we also use automated data collection tools such as “cookies” and “web beacons” to collect certain information. “Cookies” are small text files that we transfer to your computer’s hard disk for record-keeping purposes.

Your financial information will not be initially shared with or made visible to other Users. You license plate number will not be shared with visible, but may be used as a blind verification tool. (example: Hosts sees your car on his/her property and wants to verify that you are a Guest with an approved reservation. The Host may enter your plate number and the Services will compare their entry to your plate number and inform them whether it is a match or not.)
    3. Information Shared with Services Providers and Analysts. We may engage third-party services providers to work with us to administer and provide the Services.

In such an event we will take the steps we deem appropriate to ensure that your privacy rights remain protected.
