            Playdate Planet.com, L.L.C. (“Playdate Planet”) is committed to protecting your privacy. This Privacy Policy explains what information we collect, how that information may be used, with whom it may be shared, and your choices about such uses and disclosures. We encourage you to read this Privacy Policy carefully. By accessing our website, you accept the practices described below. If you have any questions about our privacy practices, please refer to the end of this Privacy Policy for information on how to contact us.

 

Information we collect about you

 

Information you provide. We may collect and store any personal information you enter on our website about yourself or one or more of your children. This includes identifying information, such as your name(s), address, email address, and telephone number(s). We also request information about your home (i.e., does it have a pool, pets, trampoline, etc.), your child (ie., gender and age) and other helpful play date related information such as whether your child has any allergies or other medical conditions. When you provide personal information through our website, the information may be sent to servers located in the United States and other countries around the world.

 

Cookies and Other Technologies. When you visit our website, the Service may use cookies or other technologies to help us remember your username for your next visit, to understand how you interact with our Service, and to improve our Service based on that information. You can set your browser to not accept cookies, but this may limit your ability to use the Service. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies and other technologies by Playdate Planet only and does not cover the use of cookies or other technologies by any advertisers.

 

Security and retention of information we collect.

   

We take appropriate security measures (including physical, electronic and procedural measures) to help safeguard your personal information from unauthorized access and disclosure. We want you to feel confident using our website to schedule and confirm play dates. However, no system can be completely secure. Although we take steps to secure your information, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your personal information or other communications will always remain secure. Users should also take care with how they handle and disclose their personal information, and should avoid sending personal information through insecure email.

 

We retain information you store on our Service for as long as we need it to provide you the Service. If you delete your account, then we'll also delete this information. But please note: (1) there might be some latency in deleting this information from our servers and back-up storage; and (2) we may retain this information if necessary to comply with our legal obligations, to resolve disputes, or to enforce our agreements. In addition, certain information provided to third parties as described in this Privacy Policy is subject to those third parties' policies.

 

How we use the information we collect

 

We may use information that we collect about you to:

o   deliver the services that you have requested;

o   manage your account and provide you with customer support;

o   perform research and analysis about your use of, or interest in, our services or content, or products, services or content offered by others;

o   communicate with you by email, postal mail, telephone and/or mobile devices about products or services that may be of interest to you;

o   develop and display content and advertising tailored to your interests on our site and other sites;

o   enforce or exercise any rights in our Terms and Conditions;

o   manage our business;

o   provide Playdate Planet.com advertisements to you when you visit other sites; and

o   perform functions as otherwise described to you at the time of collection.

 

With whom we share your information

 

Personal information. We do not share your personal information with others except as indicated below or when we inform you and give you an opportunity to opt out of having your personal information shared. We may share personal information with:

 

Service providers: We may share your personal information, which may include your name and contact information (including email address), with third parties that perform certain services on our behalf. These services may include providing customer service and marketing assistance, member screenings, supporting our website functionality, and supporting other features offered through our website. These service providers may have access to personal information needed to perform their functions but are not permitted to share or use such information for any other purposes.

 

Other Members of Playdate Planet: We may share your personal information, which may include your name and contact information (including email address), with other Members of Playdate Planet. Members who provide personal information about themselves do so at their own risk, and they accept full responsibility for making that personal information public.

 

Other Situations. We also may disclose your information, including personal information:

 

o   In response to a subpoena or other investigative demand, a court order, or a request for cooperation from a law enforcement or other government agency; to establish or exercise our legal rights; to defend against legal claims; or as otherwise required by law. In such cases, we may raise or waive any legal objection or right available to us.

 

o   When we believe disclosure is appropriate in connection with efforts to investigate, prevent, or take other action regarding illegal activity, suspected fraud or other wrongdoing; to protect and defend the rights, property or safety of our company, our users, our employees, or others; to comply with applicable law or cooperate with law enforcement; or to enforce our website terms and conditions or other agreements or policies.

 

o   In connection with a substantial corporate transaction, such as the sale of our business, a divestiture, merger, consolidation, or asset sale, or in the unlikely event of bankruptcy.

 

Aggregated and non-personal information. We may share non-personal information we collect under any of the above circumstances. We may also share it with third parties to develop and deliver targeted advertising on our website and on websites of third parties, and to analyze and report on advertising you see. We may combine non-personal information we collect with additional non-personal information collected from other sources. We also may share aggregated, non-personal information with third parties, including advisors, advertisers and investors, for the purpose of conducting general business analysis.

 

Third-party websites

 

There may be places on our website where you can click on a link to access other websites that do not operate under this Privacy Policy. For example, if you click on an advertisement on our website, then you may be taken to a website that we do not control. These third-party websites may independently solicit and collect information, including personal information, from you and, in some instances, provide us with information about your activities on those websites. We recommend that you consult the privacy statements of all third-party websites you visit by clicking on the "privacy" link typically located at the bottom of the webpage you are visiting.

How you can access your information

 

If you have an online account with us, then you have the ability to review and update your personal information online by logging into your account and clicking on your account settings.

 

Your choices about collection and use of your information

 

·      You can choose not to provide us with certain information, but that may result in you being unable to use certain features of our website because such information may be required in order for you to register as a member and/or create play dates.

 

·      When you register on our website, you will consent to receive email messages from us about our services or your account. You will be given the opportunity to opt out of any newsletters or commercial e-mails unrelated to our services or your account that we may send to you in the future. It may take up to 10 days for us to process an opt-out request. We may send you other types of transactional and relationship email communications, such as service announcements, administrative notices, and surveys, without offering you the opportunity to opt out of receiving them. Please note that changing information in your account, or otherwise opting out of receipt of promotional email communications will only affect future activities or communications from us.

 

Children's privacy

 

Our website is designed for the purpose of creating and scheduling play dates, and its use is restricted to individuals age 18 and above. Parents who provide personal information about their children do so at their own risk, and they accept full responsibility for making that personal information public. We do not knowingly collect personal information directly from children under the age of 13. COPA standards apply in all other respects.

 

Visiting our websites from outside the United States

 

This Privacy Policy is intended to cover collection of information on our website from residents of the United States. If you are visiting our website from outside the United States, please be aware that your information may be transferred to, stored, and processed in the United States where our servers are located and our central database is operated. By using our services, you understand that your information may be transferred to our facilities and those third parties with whom we share it as described in this privacy policy.

 

No rights of third parties

 

This Privacy Policy does not create rights enforceable by third parties or require disclosure of any personal information relating to users of the website.

Limitation on liability

 

            To the fullest extent permitted by law, in no event will Playdate Planet be liable to you or any third person for any indirect, consequential, exemplary, incidental, special or punitive damages, including also any loss of use, data, business, or profits, regardless of legal theory, whether or not Playdate Planet has been advised of the possibility of such damages, and even if a remedy fails of its essential purpose; or arising from your use of the Web site or the Service, even if Playdate Planet has been advised of the possibility of such damages. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Privacy Policy, Playdate Planet's liability to you for any cause whatsoever, and regardless of the form of the action, will at all times be limited to the amount paid, if any, by you to Playdate Planet for the Service during the term of membership.

 

Arbitration agreement.

 

            By using the Website or the Service in any manner, you agree that the exclusive means of resolving any dispute or claim arising out of or relating to this Agreement, the Service, or the Website will be binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA”) in Columbus, Ohio. If this arbitration clause does not apply for any reason, then you must bring an action against Playdate Planet in a small claims court located in Franklin County, Ohio.

 

            You also agree that you may only resolve disputes with Playdate Planet on an individual basis, and that you may not bring a claim as a plaintiff or a class member in a class, consolidated, or representative action. Class arbitrations, class actions, private attorney general actions, and consolidation with other arbitrations are not allowed. Instead, your rights under this Agreement will be determined by a neutral arbitrator, not a judge or a jury. You are entitled to a fair hearing before the arbitrator. The arbitrator can grant any relief that a court can, but you should note that arbitration proceedings are usually simpler and more streamlined than trials and other judicial proceedings. Decisions by the arbitrator are enforceable in court and may be overturned by a court only for very limited reasons.

 

            Any proceeding to enforce this arbitration agreement, including any proceeding to confirm, modify, or vacate an arbitration award, must be brought in the state or federal courts of Columbus, Ohio. By using the Website of the Service, you agree to venue and personal jurisdiction there.

 

            This arbitration agreement, and any dispute between you and Playdate Planet, will be governed by the laws of the state of Delaware without regard to principles of conflicts of law, provided that this arbitration agreement will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act.

 

Changes to this Privacy Policy

 

We will occasionally update this Privacy Policy. When we post changes to this Privacy Policy, we will revise the "last updated" date at the top of this Privacy Policy. We recommend that you check our website from time to time to inform yourself of any changes in this Privacy Policy or any of our other policies.
