Privacy Policy

Markett is dedicated to protecting Your personal information and informing You about how We use it. This privacy policy applies to transactions and activities and data gathered through the Markett Platform. Please review this privacy policy periodically as We may revise it without notice. This privacy policy was last revised on April 28, 2016 . Each time You use the Markett Platform or provide Us with information, by doing so You are accepting the practices described in this privacy policy at that time.

Data We Collect From You

In order to operate the Markett Platform and to provide You with information about products or services that may be of interest to You, We may collect “personal information” (i.e. information that could be used to contact You directly (without using the Markett Platform) such as full name, postal address, phone number, credit/debit card information, or email address) or “demographic information” (i.e. information that You submit, or that We collect, that is not personal information; this may include, but is not limited to, zip code, hometown, gender, username, age/birth date, browsing history information, searching history information, and registration history information). You represent and warrant that You have the authority to provide Us with any such contact information. Demographic information is divided into two categories:

  1. “non-public information”, which consists of ride transaction information and one-on-one communications between You and other users of the Markett Platform; and
  2. “public information”, which consists of all other demographic information.

Please note that nowhere on the Markett Platform do We knowingly collect, keep or maintain personal information from children under the age of 18, as We require that all users represent to Us that they are at least 18 years old. If we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under age 13, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that a child under 13 may have provided us personal information, please contact us at [insert means].

 

 Whenever you interact with the Markett Platform, we automatically receive and record information on our server logs from your browser or device, which may include your IP address, device identification, “cookie” information, the type of browser and/or device you’re using to access the Markett Platform, and the page or feature you requested. “Cookies” are identifiers we transfer to your browser or device that allow us to recognize your browser or device and tell us how and when pages and features in the Markett Platform are visited and by how many people.  You may be able to change the preferences on your browser or device to prevent or limit your device’s acceptance of cookies, but this may prevent you from taking advantage of some of our features.  Our advertising partners may also transmit cookies to your browser or device, when you click on ads that appear on the Markett Platform. Also, if you click on a link to a third party website or service, such third party may also transmit cookies to you.  Again, this Privacy Policy does not cover the use of cookies by any third parties, and we aren’t responsible for their privacy policies and practices.

We may use this data to customize content for you that we think you might like, based on your usage patterns.  We may also use it to improve the Markett Platform – for example, this data can tell us how often users use a particular feature of the Markett Platform, and we can use that knowledge to make the Markett Platform interesting to as many users as possible.

Through cookies we place on your browser or device, we may collect information about your online activity after you leave our Markett Platform.  Just like any other usage information we collect, this information allows us to improve the Markett Platform and customize your online experience, and otherwise as described in this Privacy Policy.  Your browser may offer you a “Do Not Track” option, which allows you to signal to operators of websites and web applications and services (including behavioral advertising services) that you do not wish such operators to track certain of your online activities over time and/or across different websites.  The Markett Platform do not support Do Not Track requests at this time, which means that we collect information about your online activity both while you are using the Markett Platform and after you leave our Markett Platform.

 

How We Use Personal Information

We use Your email address and Your other personal information to help Us efficiently operate the Markett Platform, to contact You in connection with Your transactions and other activities on the Markett Platform (including, but not limited to, confirmation emails, or important news that could affect Your relationship with Markett), to forward information to You from other Users and to contact You and others to suggest potential opportunities and suggestions for the Services. These types of communications are known as “Operational Communications.” In some cases, Operational Communications may also contain commercial messages, such as banner ads and special offers.

To operate the Markett Platform, including processing Your transactions and supporting Your activities on the Markett Platform, We may share Your personal information with Our agents, representatives, contractors and service providers so they can provide Us with support services such as email origination, receipt or support services, customer relationship management services, and order fulfillment. We require these entities not to use Your information for any other purpose.

By purchasing, or registering or making reservations for, products or services offered or sponsored by third parties on the Markett Platform, or electing to receive communications (such as emails or material by mail) or electing to participate in contests, sweepstakes or other programs (such as discount or rewards programs), offered or sponsored by third parties on the Markett Platform, You consent to Our providing Your personal information to those third parties. Those third parties may use Your personal information in accordance with their own privacy policies. You will need to contact those third parties to instruct them directly regarding Your preferences for the use of Your personal information by them. Additionally, You agree that We may use and disclose all such information so submitted to such third parties in the same manner in which We are entitled to use and disclose any other information You submit to Us.

Any third party with whom We are allowed to share Your personal information is authorized to use Your personal information in accordance with Our contractual arrangements with such third parties and in accordance with their own privacy policies, over which We have no control, and You agree that We are not responsible or liable for any of their actions or omissions. Those who contact You will need to be instructed directly by You regarding Your preferences for the use of Your personal information by them.

How to Edit Your Information

Markett provides You with the ability to access and edit Your personal information. To update Your personal info, click Settings in the Markett menu. There You can view, update and correct Your account information.

So that We can protect the integrity of sensitive data, there are certain pieces of information, such as Your age, that You cannot alter Yourself.

Our databases automatically update any personal information You edit in Your profile, or that You request We edit. Information transmitted through boards, chats, polls or through any other means remain in Our databases and become the property of Markett upon submission. Keep this in mind if You decide to communicate personal information through any of these applications.

Under California Civil Code Sections 1798.83-1798.84, California residents are entitled to ask us for a notice identifying the categories of Personal Information which we share with our affiliates and/or third parties for marketing purposes, and providing contact information for such affiliates and/or third parties.  If you are a California resident and would like a copy of this notice, please submit a written request to: [insert email or physical address].

Information Retention

To preserve the integrity of Our databases, standard procedure calls for Us to retain information submitted by members for an indefinite length of time. Markett understands Your submissions as consent to store all Your information in one place for this indefinite length of time, if We so wish. If required by law, as is the case to comply with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), We will nullify member information by erasing it from Our database. We will also respond to written member requests to nullify account information. Also, by using the Markett Platform, You do hereby represent and warrant that You understand and agree that all information submitted by You through the Markett Platform or otherwise to Markett becomes the property of Markett and may be used in the sole discretion of Markett in accordance with this Privacy Policy and the Terms of Use.

How We Use Demographic Data

We may review all demographic Data. We may use public information to enable other users to search Your profile and to communicate with You. We may use demographic information to tailor the Markett Platform and communications to Your interests. We may also share demographic information with advertisers on an anonymous and aggregated basis (i.e., without telling the advertisers Your identity). One of the reasons We may do this is to increase the likelihood that Our advertisers' goods and services will appeal to You as a user of the Markett Platform. Our sharing of demographic information with advertisers is anonymous (i.e., We do not tell advertisers which particular Markett Users are members of which demographic groups), subject to the rest of this privacy policy. When You respond to an advertisement, however, We ask You to remember that if that ad that is targeted to a demographic group and You decide to give the advertiser Your personal information, then the advertiser may be able to identify You as being a member of that demographic group.

We may deliver a file to you through the Markett Platform (known as a “web beacon”) from an ad network.  Web beacons allow ad networks to provide anonymized, aggregated auditing, research and reporting for us and for advertisers.  Web beacons also enable ad networks to serve targeted advertisements to you when you visit other websites.  Because your web browser must request these advertisements and web beacons from the ad network’s servers, these companies can view, edit, or set their own cookies, just as if you had requested a web page from their site.  You may be able to opt-out of web beacon tracking conducted by third parties through our Markett Platform by adjusting the Do Not Track settings on your browser; please note that we don’t control whether or how these third parties comply with Do Not Track requests.

Choice/Opt-Out

Markett provides Users the opportunity to opt-out of receiving communications from Us and Our partners at the point where We request information about the visitor. Markett gives Users the option to remove their information from Our database, to not receive future communications or to no longer receive Our service.

Special Cases in Which We Share Personal Information

Your personal information may be passed on to a third party in the event of a transfer of ownership or assets, or a bankruptcy. We may also disclose personal information when We determine that such disclosure is necessary to comply with applicable law, to cooperate with law enforcement or to protect the interests or safety of Markett or other visitors to the Markett Platform. We also may disclose Your personal information to Our subsidiary and parent companies and businesses, and other affiliated legal entities and businesses with whom We are under common corporate control. Whenever personal information is disclosed under this paragraph, We may also disclose Your demographic information along with it, on a non-anonymous basis. All of Our parent, subsidiary and affiliated legal entities and businesses that receive Your personal information or non-anonymous demographic information from Us will comply with the terms of this privacy policy with respect to their use and disclosure of such information.

Our Security Precautions

Your Markett Profile is password-protected so that only You and authorized Markett employees have access to Your account information. Markett staff will never proactively reach out to You and ask for any personal account information, including Your password. If You share a computer, You should sign out of Your Markett account and close the browser window before someone else logs on. This will help protect Your information entered on public terminals from disclosure to third parties.

Markett makes commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that Your information is secure on its system. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, Markett cannot guarantee the security of any information You transmit to Us, and You do so at Your own risk. If You have any further questions on this issue, refer to Markett Terms of Use. Markett expressly disclaims any liability that may arise should any other individuals obtain the information You submit to the Markett Platform.

Markett has reasonable security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under Our control. Your information may be transferred to and maintained on computer networks which may be located outside of the state, province, country or other governmental jurisdiction in which You reside, and the country or jurisdiction in which these computer networks are located may not have privacy laws as protective as the laws in Your country or jurisdiction.

The Markett Platform may contain links to other web sites. We are of course not responsible for the privacy practices of other web sites. We encourage Our Users to be aware when they leave the Markett Platform to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information. This Privacy Policy applies solely to information collected by the Markett Platform.

Changing our Privacy Policy for Previously Gathered Information

If at any point We decide to use particular personally identifiable information in a manner materially different from that stated at the time it was collected, We will notify Users by way of an email or by providing 30 days notice on the Markett Platform. We also encourage You to review this privacy policy periodically. By using the Markett Platform, You do hereby represent and warrant that You have read, understand and agree to all terms of Agreement. Each time You use the Markett Platform, You agree to all terms set forth in this Agreement and any other policies published by Markett on the Markett Platform. Please note that We will continue to have the right to change Our privacy policy and practices, and how We use Your personally identifiable information, without notice, as described in herein, provided that such changes shall only apply to information gathered on or after the date of the change.
