This privacy policy describes the types of personal information ChargeItSpot LLC (“ChargeItSpot” or “we” or “us”) collects about Users (“User” or “you”) of this Kiosk (“Kiosk”), how we use the information, and with whom we may share it. We also describe the measures we take to protect the security of the information and how Users can contact us about our privacy practices. This Kiosk privacy policy does not apply to information collected through our website, www.chargeitspot.com.

Personal Information We Obtain and How We Use It

When you use a ChargeItSpot Kiosk, you provide a 10-digit mobile phone number and a security identifier to secure your mobile device (“Device”). In addition, a camera in the Kiosk takes photos of you for customer service and security purposes, to protect against criminal activity, and to protect ChargeItSpot from potential civil and criminal liability. You may also be asked to enter other personal information, including but not limited to, your email address, loyalty number, and survey responses. We may use your personal information to send you text/SMS and email messages, including advertising messages.

How We Protect the Personal Information We Collect

We implement reasonable administrative, technical, and physical safeguards that are designed to protect the personal information you provide from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure.

Sharing of Personal Information

We do not sell, trade or otherwise disclose the personal information we collect about you, except as described here. We may share your information with:

Service providers who perform services on our behalf, such as sending text/SMS messages. We do not authorize these service providers to use or disclose the information except as necessary to perform services on our behalf or comply with legal requirements; and

The owner or operator of the location where this Kiosk is located (“Merchant”) and/or the person or company leasing the Kiosk (“Sponsor”) so that they can send you marketing or other messages, including by email and text/SMS, on their own behalf. This information is shared with the Merchant and/or Sponsor as part of an arrangement to provide you with the free use of a charging station. Any personal information received by the Merchant and/or Sponsor will be subject to the Merchant and/or Sponsor’s applicable privacy policies.

Additionally, we may disclose anonymous, aggregated information about our Users, including you, to third parties for any purpose if we deem such disclosure to have sound business reasons or justifications.

In addition, we may disclose information about you (1) if we are required to do so by law or legal process, (2) to law enforcement authorities or other government officials, or (3) when we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to prevent physical harm or financial loss, or in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual fraudulent or illegal activity or to otherwise enforce our legal rights. We also reserve the right to transfer information we have about you in the event we sell or transfer all or a portion of our business or assets (including in the event of a reorganization, dissolution, or liquidation).
