How We Use Your Information
We process Personal Information about Individuals for a variety of business purposes, including:
Cookies, Pixel Tags/Web Beacons and Analytics Information
Our uses of such Technologies fall into the following general categories:
Information that We Share with Third Parties
Information Shared with Your Organization. If you use our Services on behalf of an organization (e.g., an event organizer), that organization may: (i) access information associated with your use of the Services including usage and other data (e.g., who has accessed, shared, amended, created, edited, or deleted content), and the contents of the communications and files associated with your account; and (ii) control and administer your account, including controlling privacy-related settings (e.g., profile settings including choices relating to displaying a profile image).
Information Shared with Other Account Holders. As a collaborative event planning platform, Event information is shared between Account holders (i.e., registered Users) and other Users who are invited to the same Event. For example, as a Host, if you invite another User to your Event page on the Meetaverse Services, that User will see the Event specific information you have provided to describe your Event, including the event date, number of guests, venue, furniture layout, food preferences, guest list, and other information you choose to make available. With respect to floorplan information you provide to the Meetaverse Services, if you specify that the floorplan is a private residence the label or title you give the floorplan will only be known to you and those that you invite to your Event page. In addition, if you register as a vendor, your information will be available to other Users in a searchable directory. If you join an Event, any Host, Vendor or other User associated with that Event will be able to see that you are connected to that Event. The information you provide about your Event is voluntary. We recommend that you guard your sensitive information and we encourage Users to think carefully about what information about themselves they disclose on their Event pages.
In addition, as a Host, you may choose to contact a Vendor through the Meetaverse Services using our subscription feature. If you click on a “Contact Vendor” link within the Meetaverse Services, the applicable Vendor will receive your contact information (including name, phone number and email address) and information regarding your Event (such as date, event type, location, venue and number of guests). We are not responsible for any consequences of any use or disclosure of your information by such Vendors and you assume all risk arising from such information sharing and your interaction with such Vendors.
Information Shared with Our Services Providers. We may engage third-party service providers to work with us to administer and provide the Meetaverse Services.
For example, we may share your Personal Information and other information related to your payment methods with our third-party payment processing service providers in order to process payment of any fees associated with the subscription feature, if applicable. We may also engage service provider(s) that host and provide audio and/or video conferencing capabilities, and those service providers will have access to Personal Information and other information about you, including your image and/or voice if you use those aspects of the Services.
