This document will tell you what information we collect from you, what we are going to do with the information, and your rights concerning the information. The information we receive depends on what you do when you visit our website and mobile applications.
If you visit our website and mobile applications to make a purchase, our checkout process requires you to provide us with contact information (like your name and address), unique identifiers (like your email address), and demographic information (like your zip code and age).
We use your contact information to send you information about your purchases and promotional material (if you chose to allow us to). Your contact information is also used to contact you when necessary. You have the option of not receiving future mailings (see the choice/optout section below).
Financial information (such as credit card numbers) that we collect is used to bill customers for products and services.
We realize the sensitive nature of this information, and guard this information very carefully.
No personally identifiable information will be shared with our partners except as part of an explicit transaction for example, providing your customer data to the hotelier on which you've made a booking. Some of your information may be shared on an aggregate basis only, but that information will not be sufficient to permit the recipient to identify you.
As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy companies or assets. In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets. Also, in the unlikely event that StudentUniverse.com, Inc or substantially all of its assets are acquired, customer information could be one of the transferred assets.
We take extreme efforts to not involve ourselves with junk mail companies. Our mail is as targeted as we can make it, and we allow you to opt out at any time. If you feel we aren't living up to our promise, please send us an email.
We occasionally run contests on our website and mobile applications in which we ask visitors for contact information (like your email address). We use contact data from our contests to alert winners of their status, and to send users information about our company and promotional material from some of our partners. Users have the option of not receiving future mailings; see the choice/optout section below.
We follow industry standards for credit card transactions to make sure your information stays yours. We use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption technology, which is widely used and respected across the industry. SSL encrypts your name, address, telephone number and credit card information before they are transmitted across the Internet, so you can feel safe about doing business with us.
We have implemented security policies, rules and technical measures to protect the personal data that we have under our control from unauthorized access, improper use or disclosure, unauthorized modification and unlawful destruction or accidental loss. All employees who have access to, or are associated with the processing of personal data, are obliged to respect our visitors' personal data.
Children under 15 are not permitted to create an account at WeHostels or StudentUniverse.com, Inc. We do not knowingly collect personal data from children. Our younger visitors may visit the website and mobile applications and read content, but only account holders over the age of 17 may buy products.
