PRIVACY POLICY

 Last Updated on August 21, 2015

This Privacy Policy (this “Policy”) is provided to you by Event Tent, LLC (“Event Tent” or the “Company”), in connection with your access to Event Tent’s services. The Event Tent mobile application and services, as well as the Event Tent website located at www.eventtentapp.com (the “Site”) and any content therein (collectively, the “Services”) offer users a platform to find, create, and promote events (each an “Event”) while interacting with other Event Tent users (each a “User”) by sharing photos and videos at the location of an Event and viewing photos and videos posted by others. In this Policy, we describe how we collect, use, and disclose information that we obtain about users of our Services, which are available via mobile applications (the “App”) and/or the Site.

 

What Information We Collect

Account Information. When you first launch the App, we assign you a user id but we do not require you to provide your full first and last name.

We may automatically collect information about your use of the Services such as: access time, browser type, language, device ID, application ID or other unique identifier; domain name, IP address, screen views; geo-location data (with your permission); language information; device name and model; operating system information; your activities within the Services; and the length of time that you are logged in. We may combine this information with other information that we have collected about you.

Information you provide to us directly, including:

  • Your username, password, and e-mail address when you register for an Event Tent account.
  • Profile information that you provide for your user profile (g., picture, phone number). This information allows us to help you or others be “found” on Event Tent.

  • Communications between you and Event Tent. For example, we may send you Service-related emails (g., account verification, changes/updates to features of the Service, technical and security notices). Note that you may not opt out of Service-related e-mails.

Geolocation Data. We ask you to share your location information from your mobile device. If you choose not to, some of the Services will not function (i.e., camera – will not take pictures and/or videos), however other Services will still function. Location information is used to check you into an Event, to access the camera to take photos and/or videos for an Event. You can revoke your consent by changing the settings or preferences on your device or by deleting Event Tent from your device.

 Your Content and Usage. We collect any Content you submit to the Services. The Content includes anything in your posts (for example, photos and links), votes (if made available in connection with the Services), as well as information about when you submitted the Content, when it was viewed, and other activities. For more information about our policies and procedures related to Content you submit to our Site, see our Terms and Conditions of Use (our “Terms of Use”) at www.eventtentapp.com/legal/termsofuse, which incorporates this Policy.

 Telephone Number. We may ask you to provide and verify your telephone number. This process may be triggered, for example, if you want to post content or if we suspect improper activity on your account.

 Other Information You Provide to Us. When you contact Event Tent, we will collect any information you volunteer.

Social Media Sites. You can like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter, and promote us on other social media sites. We collect information about who has liked us or followed us. However, we don’t associate your social media account with your Event Tent account. You may also share events through Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, SMS messages, and other social media accounts (as available).
