The Privacy Philosophy of Tapingo and Security
Your privacy is important to Tapingo. We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. However, due to the nature of Internet communications and evolving technologies, unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors, the security of user information may be compromised at any time. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. We welcome any comments and suggestions for improvement at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Collection of Personal Information
How We Use Your Personal Information
When you use our Service through a mobile device such as a cellular phone, tablet computer or other type of cellular device or through your personal computer or any other device with Internet connectivity ("Device"), we may collect information about such use that does not necessarily identify you personally, although it may be unique to you or consist of, or contain information that you may consider personal. Such information may include, without limitation, the type of device you use, the type of browser and operating system you use, your Internet protocol addresses (including any host name or geographic information associated with these addresses), the Bluetooth MAC Address, WiFi MAC Address, IMEI number of your Device, carrier and basic usage statistics, information related to your computer or device system configuration, and interoperability of the Device and Service applications. In addition, when using location-enabled services, your Device will be sending to our servers location data from the Device, which may reveal your exact location and which may enable Tapingo to provide you with its unique location-enabled services. Should you wish this information not to be provided to Tapingo, please do not subscribe to such services and/or uninstall the Software from your Device.
Tapingo stores and processes your information on computers located in the United States that are protected by physical as well as technological security devices.
How We Share Your Personal Information
Tapingo is a platform that connects users with Merchants and service providers. In order to operate the platform, we need to share information about you and your orders with the other third parties who help enable the Service. This includes, without limitation, Merchants who sell and provide food and drink products and services, payment processing partners that we use to validate and charge your payment details and delivery persons who deliver your orders to you. To be clear, only our payment processing partners receive any credit card information.
To simplify ordering through the Service we will ask you to provide us with your credit card or stored-value card number, CVV number, its expiration date and any other details needed in order to facilitate transaction through the use of the Service. We will transmit this information safely over the Internet in a secure manner and store it in a secure server. This information will be used only to bill you for the products and services you order and purchase through the Service. We may share such information as well as information such as your name, telephone number and email address with our credit card payment processing partners in connection with fulfillment and payment of orders you submit through the Service. We may share information such as your name, telephone number and email address (but not payment details, such as credit card details) with our vendors in connection with fulfillment orders you submit through the Service. We may share information such as your name, telephone number and the delivery address you provide us (but not payment details, such as credit card details) with our delivery persons in connection with delivery of the orders you submit through the Service. We ask these entities and persons to use, store or retain such information only for purposes related to the transaction, however, since we have no control over these entities and persons, we cannot guarantee that such information will not be used for other purposes and we will have no liability if such event occurs.
We may also share with some of our business partners (such as, Merchants, retailers, and data collection companies) general information related to your use of the Service without disclosing your identity in order to improve the Service and your user experience.
We may also share with Merchants, service providers and advertisers on both a non-personally identifying basis (including order and delivery details, but not including credit card information) and an aggregate basis.
