Last Updated: February 14, 2017


This privacy policy (“Policy”) describes how Place Tempo, Inc. collects, uses and shares the personal information of consumer users of the Place Tempo website, the Place Tempo mobile and tablet application (“the App”), and/or any related services (collectively the “Place Tempo platform” or “the Platform”). The terms "we" and "us", and "Place Tempo" refer to Place Tempo, Inc. 

 
WHAT WE COLLECT

We get information about you in a range of different ways:

Information You Give Us. We collect and store your‎ name, email address, username, password, demographic information (such as the city in which you live, work or study) as well as other information you directly give us on our Platform, such as your ratings, criteria and vicinity preferences, comments and others. The information that you contribute is intended for public consumption, including your ratings, photos, check-ins, comments, points, account profile and other information. We may display this information through the Platform and share it with other businesses, third party websites or other services.

The Place Tempo App is about finding the best places in your vicinity to work remotely or study.  To do this, we need to access your location.  When you open Place Tempo on your mobile or tablet device, and allow access to your GPS, we receive your location and the App adjusts accordingly. Also, once you allow the App to access your camera and photo library, you are able to choose photos of locations that the App can then upload and then post.

We share your ratings, comments and photos, as this Platform uses crowd sourcing to show our users the best locations based on their specific criteria.  This user generated information helps others find an ideal place to work or study. We also retain and can use past ratings, comments, photos and other information a user might provide to help predict the environment of a location at a future time.

The username that you submitted through the registration process will be publicly displayed on your comments, photos and ratings, as part of your account profile. If you believe that someone has created an unauthorized account depicting you or your likeness, you can request its removal by emailing us and flagging the content.
