Privacy policy

This Privacy Policy relates solely to the information collection and use practices of our web site located at www.availany.com and any individual websites or merchant-specific, city-specific, or state-specific websites now or hereinafter contained within or otherwise available through external hyperlinks with our Website. We (Avaiany.com) recognize that many visitors and users of this Website are concerned about the information they provide to us, and how we treat that information. This Privacy Policy, which may be updated from time to time, has been developed to address those concerns. We encourage you to review the Privacy Policy, and become familiar with it. Your use of this Website indicates to us that you have read and accept our privacy practices, as outlined in this Privacy Policy.

What type of information is collected by us?

We collect two types of information about our Website Users: Personally Identifiable Information and Non-Personally Identifiable Information.

Personally Identifiable Information.

Personally Identifiable Information (PII) is information that identifies a specific end user. When you engage in certain activities on the Website, such as creating an account, ordering a product or service from the Institutions (as defined in Terms of Use), submitting content and/or posting content in discussion forums, entering a promotion sponsored by the Institution, filling out a survey, posting a review, sending feedback to us or the Institutions, requesting information about our services, applying for a job or posting a video (collectively, “Identification Activities”), we may ask you to provide certain information about yourself. It is optional for you to engage in an Identification Activity. If you elect to engage in an Identification Activity, however, we may ask you to provide us with certain personal information about yourself, such as your first and last name, mailing address, email address, cell number, telephone number and date of birth. When you order products or services, we may also ask you to provide us with financial information, including but not limited to, your credit card or debit card number, expiration date and authentication codes or related information. Depending on the activity, some of the information we ask you to provide is identified as mandatory and some is identified as voluntary. If you do not provide the mandatory information for a particular activity that requires it, you will not be permitted to engage in that activity. We use Personally Identifiable Information to provide products and services to you, administer promotions, enhance the operation of the Website, improve our marketing and promotional efforts, analyze Website use, improve our product and service offerings, and to tailor your experience with the Institutions. For instance, if you send our customer service an email we may use your comments and feedback to tell others about our services, and may post your comment in our marketing materials or on our Website. In addition, if you use our Website to send information or a product to another person, we may store your personal information, and the personal information of any recipient. We may use that other person’s contact information to allow him or her to view and accept your gift or to allow the recipient to access the information you requested we send. We may also use Personally Identifiable Information to troubleshoot, resolve disputes, accomplish administrative tasks, contact you, enforce our agreements with you, including our Website Terms of Use, and this Privacy Policy, comply with applicable law, and cooperate with law enforcement activities. In the event there is any change in your Personally Identifiable Information like your address, phone number or email ID, you may send us intimation about the changes and we will make the necessary amendment in our records.

Non-Personally Identifiable Information.

Non-Personally Identifiable Information (“NPII”) is information that does not identify a specific end user. This type of information may include things like the Uniform Resource Locator (“URL”) of the website you visited before coming to our Website, the URL of the website you visit after leaving our Website, the type of browser you are using and your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address. We, and/or our authorized third party service providers that perform function on our behalf like sending out and distributing our administrative and promotional emails (“Third Party Service Providers”) may automatically collect this information when you visit our Website through the use of electronic tools like Cookies and Web beacons or Pixel tags, as described elsewhere in this Privacy Policy. We use Non-Personally Identifiable Information to troubleshoot, administer the Website, analyse trends, gather demographic information, comply with applicable law, and cooperate with law enforcement activities. We may also share this information with Third Party Service Providers and Third Party Advertisers to measure the overall effectiveness of our online advertising, content, and programming.

When and how do we collect the information?

We collect information from you for various purposes including but not limited to the following:

Member Registration

If you choose to become a registered member of this Website, you must provide your name, telephone or cell phone number, e-mail address, a unique login name, password, and password validation, and a password hint to help you remember your password. This information is collected on the registration form for several reasons including but not limited to the following:

  • Personal identification purposes
  • Completing purchases
  • Allowing us to contact you for customer service purposes
  • If necessary, customizing the content of this Website to strive to meet your specific needs
  • For making product or other improvements to our site

In addition, we need your e-mail address to confirm your new member registration and each transaction you conduct on our site. As a registered member of this Website, you will be entitled to savings and benefits on deals including, but not limited to restaurants, hotels, holiday packages, etc. You could, in addition, look forward to receiving by e-mail monthly newsletters, daily promotions offering special deals, updates for new services, and other noteworthy items. However, you may choose at any time to no longer receive these types of e-mail messages. Please see our Opt-Out Policy described below for details.

Member Profile

As a registered member of this Website, you can choose to complete your online profile by providing us with personal preferences, credit card billing information, and other personal information. This information is primarily used to assist you in making reservations quickly without having to type in the same information repeatedly. For example, you can store your credit card billing information so that when you make a transaction, we may automatically pre-fill the credit card billing information for you.

Online Surveys

We value opinions and comments from members, so we frequently conduct online surveys. Participation in these surveys is entirely optional. Typically, the information is aggregated, and used To make improvements to our Website and its services and to develop appealing content, features and promotions for our Website members. Survey participants are anonymous unless otherwise stated in the survey.

Promotions

We may sponsor promotions to give our Website members the opportunity to win prizes. Information collected by us for such activities may include contact information and survey questions. We use contact information to notify the winners and survey information to develop promotions and product improvements to our Website.

Automatic Logging of Session Data

We automatically log generic information about your computer’s connection to the Internet, which we call “session data”, that is anonymous and not linked to any personal information. Session data consists of things such as IP address, operating system and type of browser software being used and the activities conducted by the user while on our Website. An IP address is a number that lets computers attached to the internet, such as our web servers, know where to send data back to the user, such as the pages of the site the user wishes to view. We collect session data because it helps us analyse such things as what items visitors are likely to click on most, the way visitors are clicking through the site, how many visitors are surfing to various pages on the site, how long visitors to the site are staying and how often they are visiting. It also helps us diagnose problems with our servers and lets us better administer our systems. Although such information does not identify any visitor personally, it is possible to determine from an IP address a visitor’s Internet Service Provider (ISP), and the approximate geographic location of his or her point of connectivity.

COOKIES

To improve the responsiveness of the sites for our users, we may use “cookies”, or similar electronic tools to collect information to assign each visitor a unique, random number as a User Identification (User ID) to understand the user’s individual interests using the Identified Computer. Unless you voluntarily identify yourself (through registration, for example), we will have no way of knowing who you are, even if we assign a cookie to your computer. The only personal information a cookie can contain is information you. A cookie cannot read data off your hard drive. Our advertisers may also assign their own cookies to your browser (if you click on their ads), a process that we do not control. Our web servers automatically collect limited information about your computer’s connection to the Internet, including your IP address, when you visit our site. (Your IP address is a number that lets computers attached to the Internet know where to send you data — such as the web pages you view.) Your IP address does not identify you personally. We use this information to deliver our web pages to you upon request, to tailor our site to the interests of our users, to measure traffic within our site and let advertisers know the geographic locations from where our visitors come.

LINK TO THIRD PARTY SITES

AVAILANY.COM includes links to other websites. Such sites are governed by their respective privacy policies, which are beyond our control. Once you leave our servers (you can tell where you are by checking the URL in the location bar on your browser), use of any information you provide is governed by the privacy policy of the operator of the site you are visiting. That policy may differ from ours. If you can’t find the privacy policy of any of these sites via a link from the site’s homepage, you should contact the site directly for more information. When we present information to our advertisers — to help them understand our audience and confirm the value of advertising on our website — it is usually in the form of aggregated statistics on traffic to various pages within our site. When you register with Availany.com, we contact you from Time to time about updation of your content to provide the users such features that we believe may benefit you.

INFORMATION SHARING

AVAILANY.COM shares the sensitive personal information to any third party without obtaining the prior consent of the User in the following limited circumstances: a) When it is requested or required by law or by any court or governmental agency or authority to disclose, for the purpose of verification of identity, or for the prevention, detection, investigation including cyber incidents, or for prosecution and punishment of offences. These disclosures are made in good faith and belief that such disclosure is reasonably necessary for enforcing these Terms; for complying with the applicable laws and regulations.

ACCESSING AND UPDATING PERSONAL INFORMATION

When you use AVAILANY.COM’s website, we make good faith efforts to provide you, as and when requested by you, with access to your personal information and shall further ensure that any personal information or sensitive personal data or information found to be inaccurate or deficient Shall be corrected or amended as feasible, subject to any requirement for such personal information or sensitive personal data or information to be retained by law or for legitimate business purposes. We ask individual users to identify themselves and the information requested to be accessed, corrected or removed before processing such requests, and we may decline to process requests that are unreasonably repetitive or systematic, require disproportionate technical effort, jeopardize the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical (for instance, requests concerning information residing on backup tapes), or for which access is not otherwise required. In any case where we provide information access and correction, we perform this service free of charge, except if doing so would require a disproportionate effort. Because of the way we maintain certain services, after you delete your information, residual copies may take a period of time before they are deleted from our active servers and may remain in our backup systems.

INFORMATION SECURITY

we take appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of data. These include internal reviews of our data collection, storage and processing practices and security measures, including appropriate encryption and physical security measures to guard against unauthorized access to systems where we store personal data. All information gathered on AVAILANY.COM is securely stored within the AVAILANY.COM controlled database. The database is stored on servers secured behind a firewall; access to the servers is password-protected and is strictly limited. However, as effective as our security measures are, no security system is impenetrable. We cannot guarantee the security of our database, nor can we guarantee that information you supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted to us over the Internet. And, of course, any information you include in a posting to the discussion areas is available to anyone with Internet access. However the internet is an ever evolving medium. We may change our privacy policy from time to time to incorporate necessary future changes. Of course, our use of any information we gather will always be consistent with the policy under which the information was collected, regardless of what the new policy may be. We use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit our Web site. These companies may use information (not including your name, address, email address or telephone Number) about your visits to this and other Web sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you.

What is our Opt-Out policy?

At any time, you may unsubscribe from our “Daily Deal” email or sms or other newsletter or similar services through the “My Account” link on our Website’s home page. As a member, you will occasionally receive e-mail updates from us about special offers, new services, and other noteworthy items. We hope you will find these updates interesting and informative. Of course, if you would rather not receive them, please click on the “unsubscribe” link or follow the instructions in each email message or send us an email to [email protected] We reserve the right to limit membership to those who will accept such emails. Members will be notified via email prior to any actions taken.

What security measures are available on the Website?

Data Security

We take reasonable steps to maintain the security of the Personally Identifiable Information that we collect, including limiting the number of people who have physical access to our database servers, as well as installing electronic security systems that guard against unauthorized access. However, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be completely secure. Accordingly, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information that you transmit to us, so you do so at your own risk.

Payment Security

All payments on our Website are VeriSign SSL secured. This means all personal information you provide on the Website is transmitted using SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption. SSL is a proven coding system that lets your browser automatically encrypt, or scramble, data before you send it to us. The same process is replicated when you make purchases on our Website.
