Your privacy is critically important to us. At Meitre we have a few fundamental principles:
- · We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason).
- · We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
- · We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.
Meitre LLC (“Meitre”) operates all websites under the meitre.com domain name. It is Meitre’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, Meitre collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Meitre’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Meitre’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Meitre may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Meitre also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users. Meitre only discloses logged in user IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying information
Certain visitors to Meitre’s websites choose to interact with Meitre in ways that require Meitre to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Meitre gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. Most commonly, we ask visitors who want to book a table at one of our partner restaurants to provide their name, a username, telephone number and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Meitre – by paying a deposit for a reservation, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Meitre collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Meitre. Meitre does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Meitre may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Meitre may monitor the demand for each partner restaurant. Meitre may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Meitre does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Meitre discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Meitre’s behalf or to provide services available at Meitre’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Meitre’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Meitre will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Meitre discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Meitre believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Meitre, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Meitre website and have supplied your email address, Meitre may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Meitre and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Meitre takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If Meitre, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Meitre goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Meitre may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
