Other third parties, including without limitation, such venues at which you make reservations through our Sites, and social networks that you use in connection with our Sites, may also collect, use, and share information about you. This Policy does not cover such third parties or their services. For information about third-party privacy practices, please consult with them directly.
We collect information about you in various ways when you use our Sites. We use this information to, among other things, provide the functionality and improve the quality of our Sites and personalize your experience. For example, we may collect your name, email address, postal address, phone number (including your mobile phone number), billing information, survey responses, demographics, primary dining city, current and prior reservation details, favorite venues, special venue requests, passwords, contact information of people you add to, or notify of, your venue reservations through our Sites, and other information you provide on our Sites. If you use our mobile application, either to make reservations or to pay a venue, we may also collect your mobile device ID, your precise location data, and the venue search locations you select. For certain services on our Sites, credit or debit card account information are required, as further described in the section called "Payment Card Information" below. We may also obtain information from other sources, such as third-party websites, applications, and services (each, a "Third-Party Platform"), through which you connect with our Sites and combine that with information we collect on our Sites.
When you visit our Sites, some information is automatically collected. For example, when you visit our Sites, we may automatically collect your location, computer operating system, Internet Protocol (IP) address, access times, browser type and language, and the website you visited before our Sites. We also collect information about your usage and activity on our Sites using certain technologies, such as:
Web Beacons. We may collect information using web beacons. Web beacons are electronic images that may be used on our Sites or in our emails. We use web beacons to deliver cookies, count visits, understand usage and campaign effectiveness, and tell whether you open an email and act upon it.
Do-Not-Track Signals. We currently do not employ technology that recognizes "do-not-track" signals from your browser. We may engage third parties, such as marketing or analytics partners, who may collect information about your online activities over time and across different websites when you use our Sites.
We use personal information collected through our Sites for the purposes described in this Policy or disclosed to you on our Sites or otherwise in connection with our services. For example, we may use your information to:
• make and change your venue reservations made through our Sites;
• offer you, or provide you with, other products and services through our Sites;
• operate and improve our Sites, products, and services;
• understand you and your preferences to enhance, personalize, and customize your experience and enjoyment using our Sites, products, and services, such as understanding your dining history to make recommendations about other venues you may like;
• process and deliver contest entries and rewards;
• display relevant advertising;
• respond to your comments and questions and provide customer service;
• send you information relating to our products and services, including reservation confirmations, receipts, technical notices, updates, security alerts, and support and administrative messages;
• communicate with you about contests, offers, promotions, rewards, upcoming events, and other news about products and services offered by Bottle Society, our subsidiaries, and affiliates; select venues; and our other selected partners;
• link or combine with other personal information we get from third parties to help understand your needs and provide you with better service;
• authenticate your credit or debit card account information; and
• protect, investigate, and deter against fraudulent, unauthorized, or illegal activity. By providing your mobile phone number, you expressly consent to receive direct dial calls, autodialed and prerecorded message calls, and text messages from us relating to our product and services at that number.
Information Shared with Venues. When you make a venue reservation through our Sites or mobile application, your information is provided to us and to the venues with whom you choose to reserve tables at. In order to facilitate your reservation, your information, and your groups information, is provided to that venue, just as it would if you made a reservation by calling the venue, emailing the venue, or using the venue’s website. If you provide a mobile phone number, venues may send you text messages regarding your reservation. When you make a venue reservation through our Sites and make a payment to a venue through our Sites, we may also share with the venues additional information, such as information about your dining preferences and history or information that we collect via Third-Party Platforms. You also have the option of indicating special preferences or providing comments about your reservation that Bottle Society will pass on to that venue. We may share with venues summary reports of feedback from users. Information you choose to share with a venue when you make a reservation and/or pay a venue through our Sites may be used by the venue for its own purposes. Bottle Society does not control the privacy practices of venues. Please contact the venue directly if you want to learn about its privacy practices.
Information Shared with other users. When you create a group through our Sites or mobile application, your information (profile picture, email, profile information) is provided to us and to other users with whom you choose to reserve a table at a venue with. In order to create the best fit group, your information is shared with group members. All members also have the option of contacting other group members in the special group messaging feature. You can withdraw from group messaging by leaving the group.
Payment Card Information. To use certain services on our Sites, we require credit or debit card account information. By submitting your credit or debit card account information through our Sites, you expressly consent to the sharing of your information with venues, third-party payment processors, and other third-party service providers (including but not limited to vendors who provide fraud detection services to us and other third parties), and you further agree to the following terms.
When you use a credit or debit card to secure a reservation through our Sites, we provide your credit or debit card account information (including card number and expiration date, but excluding the CVV number) to our third-party payment service providers and the applicable venue.
For information about the security of your credit or debit card account information, see Section called "Security of Your Personal Information" below.
Information You Share Socially. Our Sites may allow you to connect and share your actions, comments, content, and information publicly or with friends. Our Sites may also allow you to connect with us on, share on, and use Third-Party Platforms, including those on which Bottle Society has a presence.
Please be mindful of your personal privacy needs and the privacy needs of others as you choose whom to connect with and what to share and make public. We cannot control the privacy or security of information you choose to make public or share with others. Bottle Society also does not control the privacy practices of Third-Party Platforms. Please contact those sites and services directly if you want to learn about their privacy practices.
Sharing with Others. We do not share your personal information with third parties other than as described above and as follows:
• We may share personal information when you authorize us to share your information with other third parties (such as the venues at which you make reservations through our Sites) for their own marketing purposes, which are subject to the separate privacy policies of such third parties.
• We may share personal information with affiliates, third-party vendors, consultants, and other service providers who work for us. Such third-party vendors may include vendors who provide fraud detection services to us and other third parties.
• We may share your credit or debit card account information with third parties as described in the section called "Payment Card Information" above.
• We may share aggregate statistical data for the improvement of services offered by our Sites.
• We share personal information with third parties who provide services to us, such as data collection, reporting, ad response measurement, and site analytics, as well as assistance with delivery of relevant marketing messages and advertisements. These third parties may view, edit, or set their own cookies. We and our third-party service providers, advertisers, and/or partners may also place web beacons for these third parties. The use of these technologies by these third parties is subject to their own privacy policies and is not covered by this Policy.
• We may disclose or transfer your personal information to a third party if we sell, transfer, divest, or disclose all or a portion of our business or assets to another company in connection with or during negotiation of any merger, financing, acquisition, bankruptcy, dissolution, transaction, or proceeding.
• We may also share aggregated or de-identified information with third parties in our discretion.
If you have a Bottle Society account, you have the ability to review and update your personal information within the Service by opening your account and going to settings. Applicable privacy laws may allow you the right to access and/or request the correction of errors or omissions in your personal information that is in our custody or under our control. Our Privacy Officer will assist you with the access request. This includes:
Identification of personal information under our custody or control; and
Information about how personal information under our control may be or has been used by us.
We will respond to requests within the time allowed by all applicable privacy laws and will make every effort to respond as accurately and completely as possible. Any corrections made to personal information will be promptly sent to any organization to which it was disclosed.
In certain exceptional circumstances, we may not be able to provide access to certain personal information we hold. For security purposes, not all personal information is accessible and amendable by the Privacy Officer. If access or corrections cannot be provided, we will notify the individual making the request within 30 days, in writing, of the reasons for the refusal.
Bottle Society takes reasonable steps to help protect your personal information in an effort to prevent loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. When your credit or debit card account information is being transmitted to our Sites or through our Sites, it will be protected by encryption technology, such as Secure Sockets Layer (SSL).
To be clear, Bottle Society does not itself store your credit or debit card account information, and we do not have direct control over or responsibility for your credit or debit card account information. Our contracts with third parties that receive your credit or debit card account information require them to keep it secure and confidential.
Nonetheless, we cannot guarantee that transmissions of your credit or debit card account information or personal information will always be secure or that unauthorized third parties will never be able to defeat the security measures taken by Bottle Society or our third-party service providers. We assume no liability or responsibility for disclosure of your information due to errors in transmission, unauthorized third-party access, or other causes beyond our control. You play an important role in keeping your personal information secure. You should not share your user name, password, or other security information for your Bottle Society account with anyone. If we receive instructions using your user name and password, we will consider that you have authorized the instructions.
You may opt out of receiving promotional emails from Bottle Society by following the instructions in those emails. If you opt out, we may still send you non-promotional emails, such as emails about your Bottle Society account or our ongoing business relations. You may also send requests about your contact preferences or changes to your information, including requests to opt out of sharing your personal information with third parties, to our contact information below.
You can choose not to provide us with certain information, but that may result in you being unable to use certain features of our Service because such information may be required in order for you to register as user; purchase products or services; participate in a contest, promotion, survey, or sweepstakes; ask a question; or initiate other transactions.
Cookie choices. Most web browsers are set to accept cookies by default. If you prefer, you can usually choose to set your browser to remove cookies and to reject cookies. If you choose to remove cookies or reject cookies, this could affect certain features or services of our Sites.
Application location choices. Most mobile devices allow you to turn off location services. For more information about how to do this, please contact your mobile service carrier or your device manufacturer. If you choose to turn off location services, this could affect certain features or services of our Sites.

Your California Privacy Rights (As Provided by California Civil Code Section 1798.83) A California resident who has provided personal information to a business with whom he/she has established a business relationship for personal, family, or household purposes (a "California Customer") may request information about whether the business has disclosed personal information to any third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes, subject to certain exceptions. In general, again, subject to certain exceptions, if the business has made such a disclosure of personal information, upon receipt of a request by a California Customer, the business is required to provide a list of all third parties to whom it disclosed personal information in the preceding calendar year, as well as a list of the categories of personal information that were disclosed. One of the exceptions allows Bottle Society to provide California Customers a cost-free means to opt out of these disclosures instead of providing such list. Any customer may request to opt out of these disclosures by contacting Bottle Society as described above. California Customers may also request further information about our compliance with this law by contacting us at our address above.
Bottle Society may update or revise this Policy from time to time. You agree that you will review this Policy periodically. If we make any changes to this Policy, we will change the "Last Updated" date above. You are free to decide whether or not to accept a modified version of this Policy, but accepting this Policy, as modified, is required for you to continue using our Sites. If you do not agree to the terms of this Policy or any modified version of this Policy, your sole recourse is to terminate your use of our Sites.
