- Privacy Policy

Welcome and thank you for your interest in SeatMe ("SeatMe"). SeatMe allows users to make online reservations at restaurants through its website located at located at www.seatme.com and other affiliated websites owned and operated by SeatMe (the Site, and any products and services provided by SeatMe, collectively referred to as the "Service").
SeatMe respects your privacy, and this Privacy Policy is designed to help you understand how we collect, use, and disclose your personal information, and help you make informed decisions when using the Service. By using the Service, you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Policy. If you have questions or concerns regarding this Privacy Policy, you should first contact us at privacy@SeatMe.com.
This Privacy Policy is incorporated into, and made a part of, the SeatMe Terms of Use, available here, and capitalized terms used and not defined in this policy have the meaning given to them in the Terms.
The SeatMe Reservation System
SeatMe provides the Service to enable Users to make online reservations at participating third-party restaurants ("Restaurants"). The Service is used in place of traditional reservation books, and enables Users to find available tables and change or cancel reservations online, without having to call or contact the Restaurant in question. SeatMe will share your name, phone number, and email address with the Restaurant to facilitate your reservation, but will not share any other information about you or your Reservations with the Restaurant. However, if the Restaurant shares corporate ownership with other restaurants, your information will be available to all the restaurants that share the same corporate owner. Similarly, the Restaurant may store personal information such as your credit card number, loyalty card information, or dietary preferences, and such information will not be made available to us through the Service. In some instances, Restaurants may operate their own online websites for reservations which may collect additional personal information from you at the time you make your reservation. If such websites are linked to the Service, the only personal information that we will receive regarding your reservation is your name, phone number, and email address.
In addition to making online reservations through our Site, you may also make reservations through our affiliate sites. Any reservation(s) made in such manner will be treated as if the reservation(s) had been made directly through our Site.

How Restaurants May Use Your Information:
The Way SeatMe Uses Information:
Third Party Advertising:
Advertisements that may appear on the Site or Service are sometimes delivered (or "served") directly to users by third party advertisers. They automatically receive your IP address or device ID when this happens. Third party advertisers may also use other technologies (such as cookies, JavaScript, or web beacons) to measure the effectiveness of their advertisements and to personalize their advertising content. In this way, they may compile information about where individuals using your computer or browser saw their advertisements and determine which advertisements are clicked. Third party advertisers have no access to your contact information.
SeatMe does not provide any personally identifiable information to these third-party ad servers or ad networks without your consent. However, please note that if an advertiser asks SeatMe to show an advertisement to a certain audience or audience segment and you respond to that advertisement, the advertiser or ad-server may conclude that you fit the description of the audience they were trying to reach.
You should consult the respective privacy policies of these third-party ad servers or ad networks. The Privacy Policy of SeatMe does not apply to, and we cannot control the activities of, such other advertisers or websites.
Third Party Services:
The Site may contain link to Web sites and services provided by third parties, such as links to Restaurant websites. Any information you provide to third party sites or services is provided directly to that third party and is subject to that third party's policies governing privacy and security. We are not responsible for the content or privacy and security practices and policies of third party sites or services to which links are displayed on the Site. We encourage you to learn about third parties' privacy and security policies before providing them with personally identifiable information.
Your Choices:
You may, of course, decline to share certain personally identifiable information with SeatMe, in which case SeatMe may not be able to provide to you some of the features and functionality found on the Service. You may modify or delete certain profile information at any time by logging into your account on a computer and clicking the "My Settings Tab". Information will be updated promptly in active user databases. Individuals who wish to deactivate their SeatMe account may do so by emailing us at privacy@SeatMe.com. Removed information may persist in backup copies for a reasonable period of time but will not be generally available to other Users. Further, even after removal, copies of User Content may remain viewable in cached and archived form or if other Users have copied or stored your User Content. If you have provided any information directly to a Restaurant that has been stored in an online application, this information will continue to be accessible by the Restaurant even after you delete your account, in a similar manner as an information stored in a 'pen and paper' guestbook would.
Where you make use of the communication features of the Service to share information with other individuals on SeatMe or make information publicly available, however, (e.g., providing a restaurant review to us) you generally cannot remove such communications.
To protect your privacy and security, we take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting you account access or making corrections to your information. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR MAINTAINING THE SECRECY OF ANY APPLICABLE PASSWORD AND ACCOUNT INFORMATION AT ALL TIMES.
Our Commitment to Data Security:
SeatMe takes certain precautions to protect our users' information and to limit the risk that it will be accessed without authorization, including use of certain industry standard technologies and practices. We cannot, however, ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to SeatMe, and you do so at your own risk.
If SeatMe learns of a security systems breach, then we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. SeatMe may post a notice through the Service if a security breach occurs. Depending on where you live, you may have a legal right to receive notice of a security breach in writing. To receive a free written notice of a security breach, or if you have any questions about the security of SeatMe applications, please contact us at privacy@SeatMe.com.
International Visitors:
The Service currently only works with Restaurants in the United States. If you use the Service from countries outside the United States, please note that your personally identifiable information may be transferred to the United States. By using the Service, you consent to having your personally identifiable information transferred to and processed in the United Sates.
In the Event of Merger or Sale:
While we are not in the business of selling personal information, in the event that all or a portion of SeatMe or its assets is acquired by or merged with a third party entity, we reserve the right, in any of these circumstances, to transfer or assign the information that we have collected from visitors to the Site, including personally identifiable information, in connection with such merger, acquisition, sale, reorganization, recapitalization, or other change of control.
Changes and Updates to this Privacy Policy:
Please revisit this page periodically to stay aware of any changes, as SeatMe may periodically change, modify, add, or remove portions of this Privacy Policy, and reserves the right to do so in its sole discretion. If we do, we will post those changes on this page and indicate the new effective date so that you are always aware of what information we collect and how we use it. In general, we only use your personal information in the manner described in the Privacy Policy in effect when we received that personal information.
