Privacy Notice for ChargeItSpot Kiosks
Personal Information We Obtain and How We Use It
ChargeItSpot is committed to protecting your privacy when you use a ChargeItSpot Kiosk. When you use our Kiosk, you provide a 10-digit mobile phone number and select a security identifier or image. In some instances, instead of a mobile phone number, you may provide a loyalty card number, a customer number, barcode or QR code, or other identification number. This information is primarily used by ChargeItSpot to secure your mobile device (“Device”), but may also be provided to the “Merchant” and/or “Sponsor” in accordance with the “Sharing of Personal Information” below. 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. ChargeItSpot uses your photo solely for the purposes of security and customer service. In no event will ChargeItSpot use your photos for facial recognition or similar profiling purposes. You may also be asked to enter other personal information, including but not limited to, your email address, loyalty number, and survey responses, which may be shared the “Merchant” and/or “Sponsor” in accordance with the “Sharing of Personal Information” below. We do not collect information from, download information onto, access data on, or otherwise sync with your Device while your Device is connected to the Kiosk for charging.
Messaging and Communications
In some cases, your use of the Kiosk is contingent upon you agreeing to receive text/SMS and/or email messages related to your use of the Kiosk and for other purposes described in this policy. These conditions will be clearly stated on the page where you enter your mobile number or email address. Unless you opt-out in accordance with this policy, we and/or the “Merchant” and/or “Sponsor” may use your personal information to send you text/SMS and email messages, including advertising messages. While your agreement to receive certain text/SMS and email messages may be a condition for the continued use of the Kiosk, you may opt-out of certain other communications we send you, for example, by clicking on the “unsubscribe” link in marketing emails or texting “STOP” in response to text/SMS messages. Please be aware that there may be a brief period before we are able to process your opt-out, but we will always respect your legal rights to opt-out of receiving unwanted messages. In other instances, however, your agreement to receive certain types of communications is based on your express acceptance (or opt-in) to receive such communications.
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 herein. We may share your information with:
- Service providers who perform services on our behalf, such as text/SMS message services. 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.
- The owner or operator of the location where this Kiosk is located (together, with any agents acting on its behalf, “Merchant”) and/or the person or company leasing the Kiosk (together, with its affiliates, “Sponsor”) so that they can, on their own behalf, (a) prepare marketing and business analyses, (b) send you marketing or other messages, including by email and text/SMS, and/or (c) develop customer profile data. 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’s 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.
We may also 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 that we sell or transfer
all or a portion of our business or assets (including in the event of a merger, reorganization, dissolution, or liquidation).
