We may collect Usage Information from you as follows:
Cookies: From time to time, we may now or in the future use "cookies" to keep track of your visit to and use of the Services. A cookie is a small piece of data that your browser stores on your computer’s hard drive and is used to collect information, such as identifying those areas of the Services that you have visited in the past in order to enhance your next visit to the Services. You can choose whether to accept cookies by changing the settings of your Internet browser, but some functionality of the Services may be impaired or not function as intended if you choose not to accept cookies.
Web Beacons: Some of our web pages and electronic communications may contain images, which may or may not be visible to you, known as Web Beacons (sometimes referred to as ‘clear gifs’). Web Beacons collect only limited information that includes a cookie number; time and date of a page view; and a description of the page on which the Web Beacon resides. We may also carry Web Beacons placed by third party advertisers. These Web Beacons do not carry any Personal Information and are only used to track usage of the Services and activities associated with the Services.
iBeacons and Geolocation: While using certain features of the App, we do not currently, but we may in the future choose to track the physical location of your mobile device to send you information that is relevant to you. Our App may request your physical location for purposes of making personal recommendations for locations, media or events, or for other purposes that we may determine in the future. You will always have control over whether to transmit your physical location, and you can prevent such disclosure by disabling Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, declining the request to share your location, or adjusting your privacy settings in your mobile device operating system (as applicable).
Unique Identifier: We may assign you a unique internal identifier to help keep track of your future visits.

Use of Collected Information
Information collected by Baxta may be used for the following main purposes:
- To enable the features of the Services, including, but not limited to: (a) operating any promotions in which you may participate; (b) setting up and managing your User Account and Profile, including; and/or (c) providing support, products or services to you.
- To improve the Services by determining which of our products, features and services are most popular. We may analyze usage trends and your information and preferences to enable us and our affiliates to provide services to you and develop new features, functionality, and services and otherwise for our internal business purposes.
- To personalize your experience on the Services.
- To communicate with you and keep you updated with information about existing and new services, products, and special offers.
Social Network Sharing
Certain functionality of the Services is specifically designed to permit interactions that you initiate between the Services and third party websites or services, including third party social networks ("Social Features"). Examples of Social Features include enabling you to transmit content to the Services from your account on a third party website or service, and to "like" or "share" our content on the Services to other websites or services.
If you choose to use Social Features, information you post or provide access to may be publicly displayed on the Services or by the provider of the Social Feature that you use. Similarly, if you post information on a third party platform that references Baxta (e.g., by using a hashtag associated with Baxta in a tweet or status update), your post may be published on the Services in accordance with the terms of the third party website or service. Also, both Baxta and the third party may have access to certain information about you and your use of the Services and the third party site or service. In addition, we may receive information about you if other users of a third party website give us access to their profiles and you are one of their "connections," or information about you is otherwise accessible through your "connections" web pages, profile pages, or similar pages on a social networking or other third party website or interactive service.
If you create your Baxta Profile through Social Features and you do not want to link your Baxta Profile to such Social Features, you must adjust your settings by visiting the application settings on the Social Features and follow the instructions provided by them. Baxta can not adjust these settings for you. We are only using the means provided by the applicable Social Features to integrate your account with Baxta. Such means include, but are not limited to, APIs, OAuth Tokens and widgets. Baxta will only receive the limited information that the Social Features allows to be transferred to our App.
When Information Is Disclosed
We may now or in the future share Usage Information with third parties to demonstrate the usage patterns for advertisements, content, functionality and/or promotions, on the Services and/or on third party websites.
In addition to the other rights herein, at all times we shall have the right to exploit, share, and use for any purpose the Personal Information collected that is in an aggregated, anonymized form, such that you are not identified (collectively, "De-identified Data"). Except as otherwise set forth herein, we may continue to use Personal Information and exploit, share and use your De-Identified Data after you deactivate or cancel your User Account.
We reserve the right to transfer your Personal Information, as well as any information about or from you, in connection with the merger, sale or other disposition of all or part of our business and/or assets. We cannot make any representations regarding the use or transfer of your Personal Information or other information that we may have in the event of our bankruptcy, reorganization, insolvency, receivership, or an assignment for the benefit of creditors. You expressly agree and consent to the use and/or transfer of your Personal Information or other information in connection with a sale or transfer of some or all of our assets in any of the above described proceedings. Furthermore, we cannot and will not be responsible for any breach of security by any third parties or for any actions of any third parties that receive any of the information that is disclosed to us.
We may disclose your Personal Information for any other purpose disclosed by us when you provide the information. We may also disclose your Personal Information with your permission or as directed by you.
User Account, Password and Security
For certain features available through the Services, we may require the use of encryption technologies provided for your protection and/or User Account. We use reasonable precautions to protect the privacy of your username, password and User Account information and to ensure that information collected through the Services is not lost, misused or altered inappropriately by administering security measures.
You are ultimately responsible for protecting your username, password and User Account information from disclosure to third parties, and you are not permitted to circumvent the use of required encryption technologies. You agree to: (a) immediately notify us of any unauthorized use of your username, password and/or User Account, and/or any other breach of security; and (b) ensure that you log out from your User Account at the end of each session.
While we may provide certain encryption technologies and use other reasonable precautions to protect your confidential information and provide suitable security, we do not and cannot guarantee or warrant that any information transmitted through the Internet is secure, or that such transmissions are free from delay, interruption, interception or error. Baxta takes reasonable measures in an effort to prevent the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information that we obtain from you, but we make no assurances about our ability to prevent any such loss, misuse or alteration.
Information from Children
Privacy Outside the Services
Baxta may use the services of third party service providers, for example to process transactions, provide analytics services, and provide phone verification services when you sign up to use the App. By using our Services, you grant us all necessary rights and consents under applicable laws to disclose to our third party service providers – or allow such third party service providers to collect, use, retain, and disclose – any Personal Information for purposes of providing services to you, including data that we may collect directly from our customers using cookies or other similar means.
European Union Users
TRANSFERRING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION OUT OF THE EEA
To deliver services to you, it is sometimes necessary for us to share your personal information outside the European Economic Area (EEA), e.g.:
- with our service providers located outside the EEA; or
- if you are based outside the EEA.
These transfers are subject to special rules under European and UK data protection law.
Some non-EEA countries do not have the same data protection laws as the United Kingdom and EEA and have not been deemed as having adequate protection by the European Commission. We will, however, ensure the transfer complies with data protection law and all personal information will be secure. Our standard practice is to use standard data protection contract clauses that have been approved by the European Commission.
If you would like further information, please contact us.
Choices with Your Personal Information
Whether you submit any Personal Information to us is entirely up to you. You are under no obligation to provide Personal Information. However, this information is essential for the provision and quality of some of the services we offer to you, so we cannot provide you with certain services if you choose to withhold requested information.
The App has certain built-in privacy features that prevents Baxta from sharing users’ phone numbers or email addresses, and calendar event details with other users.
