PRIVACY POLICY

Last Updated: May 12, 2014

Advntur, Inc. connects Natives who have accommodations to rent and sports equipment to share with Explorers seeking to rent such accommodations and participate in a sports activity (the “Services”), which Services are accessible at https://advntur.com (the “Site”). If you do not agree to any part of this Privacy Policy, then Advntur cannot provide the Services to you.

DEFINITIONS

Where the definition of a term does not appear in this Privacy Policy (such as “Listing”, “Accommodation”, “Content” etc.), it shall be given its definition as outlined in our Terms of Service (https://advntur.com/Support/Terms).

“Aggregated information” means information about all of our users or specific groups or categories of users that we combine together and which does not include the users’ Personal Information.

"Data Controller" means Advntur, the company responsible for the use of and processing of Personal Information.

"Personal Information" means information relating to a living individual who is or can be identified either from that information or from that information in conjunction with other information that is in, or is likely to come into, the possession of the Data Controller.

USERS’ INFORMATION

Advntur receives and stores information that you make available when accessing or using the Services. The information includes but is not limited to information provided for your user account, your use of the Services or any communications with Advntur.

In addition to any Personal Information or other information that you choose to submit to Advntur, Advntur may use a variety of technologies that automatically (or passively) collect certain information whenever you visit or interact with the Services. Advntur may use this information for a variety of purposes, including to enhance or otherwise improve the Services. In addition, tracking information is collected as you navigate through the Services, including, but not limited to geographic areas.

Advntur may review communications between users exchanged via the Services for fraud prevention, risk assessment, regulatory compliance, product development, research and customer support purposes. For example, as part of Advntur’s fraud prevention efforts, the Services may scan and analyze messages to mask contact information and references to other websites. Advntur does not review your communications for sending third party marketing messages to you. Advntur does not sell these reviews or analyses of communications to third parties. Advntur also uses automated methods to carry out these reviews or analyses where reasonably possible. By using the Services, you consent that Advntur, in its sole discretion, may review, scan, analyze, and store your communications, whether done manually or through automated means.

DISCLOSURE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

Parts of your public profile page that contain some Personal Information may be displayed in other parts of the Services to other users for marketing purposes.

Your public Listing page will always include some minimum information such as the city and sport where the Accommodation is located and your public profile photo. Parts of your public Listing page may be displayed in other parts of the Services to other users for marketing purposes. The Services may also display the Accommodation’s approximate geographic location on a map, such that a user can see the general area of the Accommodation.

The Services allows your public profile and public Listing pages to be included in search engines, in which case your public profile and public Listing pages will be indexed by search engines and may be published as search results. If you change your settings or the information on your public profile or public Listing pages, third-party search engines may not update their databases quickly or at all. We do not control the practices of third-party search engines, and they may use caches containing outdated information, including any information indexed by the search engine before you change your settings or the information on your public profile or public Listing pages.

When you submit a request to book an Accommodation, your full name will become visible to the Native. We will not share your phone number unless there is a confirmed booking.

When your request to book an Accommodation is accepted by the Native or when you accept an Explorer’s request to book your Accommodation, we will disclose some of your Personal Information to the Native or Explorer. However, your billing information will never be shared with another user.

When an Explorer stays at your Accommodation or when you stay at a Native’s Accommodation, we will ask you to review the Explorer or the Accommodation. If you choose to provide a review, your review may be public on the Services.

You acknowledge, consent and agree that Advntur may access, preserve and disclose your account information and Content if required to do so by law or in a good faith belief that such access, preservation or disclosure is reasonably necessary to (a) respond to claims asserted against Advntur; (b) to comply with legal process; (c) to enforce and administer our agreements with users; (d) for fraud prevention, risk assessment, investigation, customer support, product development and debugging purposes; or (e) to protect the rights, property or personal safety of Advntur, its users or members of the public. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to notify users about law enforcement requests for their data unless prohibited by law or by the government request, or if doing so would be futile or ineffective.

We may also publish, disclose and use Aggregated Information and non-personal information for industry analysis, demographic profiling, marketing and advertising, and other business purposes.

BUSINESS TRANSFERS BY ADVNTUR

If Advntur undertakes or is involved in any merger, acquisition, reorganization, sale of assets or bankruptcy or insolvency event, then Advntur may sell, transfer or share some or all of our assets, including your Personal Information.

HOW TO CHANGE OR DELETE YOUR INFORMATION, OR CANCEL YOUR ADVNTUR ACCOUNT

You may review, update, correct or delete the Personal Information in your Advntur account by logging in to your account. If you would like to cancel your Advntur account entirely, you can do so by logging in to your account. Please also note that any reviews, forum postings and similar materials posted by you may continue to be publicly available on the Services in association with your first name, even after your Advntur account is cancelled.

KEEPING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION SECURE

We have implemented reasonable administrative, technical, and physical security measures to protect your Personal Information against the unauthorized access, destruction or alteration of your information. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, and no method of storing electronic information, can be 100% secure. So, we cannot guarantee the absolute security of your transmissions to us and of your Personal Information that we store.

YOUR PRIVACY WHEN YOU ACCESS THIRD-PARTY WEBSITES AND RESOURCES

The Services will contain links to other websites not owned or controlled by Advntur. Advntur does not have any control over third party websites. These other websites may place their own cookies, web beacons or other files on your device, or collect and solicit Personal Information from you. They will have their own rules about the collection, use and disclosure of Personal Information. We encourage you to read the terms of use and privacy policies of the other websites that you visit.

Some portions of the Services implement Google Maps/Earth mapping services, including Google Maps API(s). Your use of Google Maps/Earth is subject to Google’s terms of use (located at http://www.google.com/intl/en_us/help/terms_maps.html) and Google’s privacy policy (located at http://www.google.com/privacy.html), as may be amended by Google from time to time.

CHANGES TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY

We may change how we collect and then use Personal Information at any time and without prior notice, at our sole discretion. You will be notified if Advntur makes material changes to the Privacy Policy.

COOKIES

A Flash cookie is a data file placed on a device via the Adobe Flash plug-in that may be built-in to or downloaded by you to your device. Cookies and Flash cookies may be used for many purposes, including, without limitation, remembering you and your preferences and tracking your visits to our web pages. Cookies work by assigning a number to the user that has no meaning outside of the assigning website.

Cookies can be disabled or controlled by setting a preference within your web browser. If you choose to disable cookies or Flash cookies on your device, some features of the Services may not function properly or may not be able to customize the delivery of information to you.

California Privacy Rights

California’s “Shine the Light” law, California Civil Code § 1798.83, requires certain businesses to respond to requests from California customers (those who have an established business relationship with us) asking about the business’ practices related to disclosing personal information to third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes. Alternately, such businesses may have in place a policy not to disclose personal information of customers to third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes unless the customer first affirmatively agrees to the disclosure (opt-in) or if the customer has exercised an option to opt-out of such information-sharing (opt-out).

Advntur has opted for this alternative approach, and Advntur does not share personal information with third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes unless you provide us with permission at the time you provide such customer information.
