1. Information We Collect
When you register on the Site or via the Apps, we may collect the following types of information:
(a) Personal Information: Personal Information is information that personally identifies one individual from another. You voluntarily provide this information to us when you use the Service. Depending upon how you use FastBar, we may ask you to provide us with some or all of the following elements of Personal Information: (i) Name; (ii) Phone Number; (iii) Email Address; and (iv) Street Address. We may also ask you to provide payment information in order to make purchases at the event you are attending.
We may also collect Personal Information about you if you choose to access the Service via Facebook or other social networking platforms. If you do so, you are granting us permission to access and use Personal Information that is associated with your Facebook or other social networking account, which may include information such as your name, email address, gender, age, picture, friends’ names, user Ids, connections, and any similar information.
If you access the Service via the Site, we may record your computer IP address, and may tie it to your specific account. Under ordinary circumstances, an IP address recorded in isolation is not Personal Information under the standard definition of the term. However, it may become Personal Information when it is combined with other information, as in this case. If you utilize the Apps, we may record your unique device identifier (or "Unique Device ID"), which is an alpha-numeric string of data that can either be part of the hardware of your device or automatically assigned to your device by the operating system or software. When you log on to your account, we may record your Unique Device ID and may tie it to your specific account. As with an IP address, a Unique Advice ID recorded in isolation is not Personal Information under the standard definition of the term. However, it may become Personal Information when it is combined with other information, as in this case.
Why do we collect Personal Information? We use the Personal Information we collect from and about you to enable you to utilize the Service, and to send you informational and promotional messages via email or text. You may stop receiving promotional emails from us by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of the email. With your consent, we may also use your phone number to send you text messages. You may opt-out of receiving text messages by replying with the word “Stop” to any message you may receive. We also use Personal Information to analyze how you used the Service at an event in order to improve your experience at future events, and we may send you promotional messages and targeted offers.
(b) General Information: General Information consists of information that is anonymous in nature and does not identify you as an individual. When you visit our Site, General Information is collected through a small piece of computer code called a “cookie,” and could include your computer IP address, unique mobile device identifier, browser type, ISP or carrier name, and the URL of the last webpage you visited before visiting our website. When you utilize the App, our servers may automatically record certain information, which is sent by your mobile device and stored in log files. This may include your mobile device push notification identifier, operating system, carrier name, and similar data.
Why do we collect General Information? We collect General Information to gain insight into how our Service is used. We use these insights for a number of business purposes, including auditing, research, and analysis in order to maintain, protect and improve the Service; ensuring the technical functioning of the Site and Apps; and developing new features. Such information gives us insights on how our users use our Site and our Services. We use this information to ensure that our Service continues to appeal to our users.
(c) Usage Information: We also collect information regarding the manner in which users utilize the Apps, such as application version, device manufacturer and OS version, timestamp, language used, and other statistical information.
Why do we collect Usage Information? We use this information to ensure that our Service continues to appeal to our users, and for a number of other purposes, including auditing, research, and analysis in order to maintain, protect and improve the App; ensuring the technical functioning of the App; and developing new products.
(d) Location Tracking: The App may collect and process information about your actual location using various technologies, including IP address, GPS, and other sensor that may, for example, provide us with information on nearby devices, Wi-Fi access points and cell towers. The location-based service offered in the App is for individual use only and should not be used or relied on as an emergency locator system, used while driving, or operating vehicles, or used in connection with any hazardous environments requiring fail-safe performance, or any other situation in which the failure or inaccuracy of use of the location-based services could lead directly to death, personal injury, or severe physical or property damage.
Why do we track your location? The Apps may require your location information for one or more features to work. Where the App does collect precise information about the location of your device, it will be used to provide location services for the App, and for other purposes, including, but not limited to, the provision of event-specific information.
Opting Out: You can manage your location preferences and opt out of location tracking by declining or disabling the GPS services for the App on your mobile device.
2. How We Share information
We share information, including Personal Information, with third parties in the following manner:
(a) We may provide some Personal Information and General Information to our subsidiaries, affiliated companies, or other businesses or persons for the purpose of processing and/or storing such information on our behalf. We necessarily have to share your Personal Information with such third parties as may be required to perform their functions, such as payment processors and email service providers. We require that these parties process such information with due diligence. We also use reasonable efforts to limit their use of such information and to use other appropriate confidentiality and security measures.
(b) We may also share your information (including Personal Information) with event organizers, promoters, and other third parties, at our discretion. They use this information to determine the types of people who attended their events and the purchases they made at the event using the Service. These parties may attempt to contact you for promotional purposes, unless you provide instructions to the contrary.
(c) If requested or required by law enforcement authorities, courts, or regulators, we may disclose any information we have about our users. We also may disclose your Personal Information to exercise or protect legal rights or defend against legal claims.
(d) In some cases, we may choose to buy or sell assets. In these business transfers, customer information, including Personal Information, is typically one of the business assets that are transferred. Moreover, if all or substantially all of our business assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that we go out of business or enter into bankruptcy, customer information (including your Personal 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 assets may continue to be used according to your Personal Information as set forth in this policy.

We cannot assume responsibility or liability for unauthorized access to our servers and systems.
4. How Long We Keep Information
The reserve the right to keep information for our internal business purposes for as long as we are legally permitted to do so. We may also choose to anonymize certain of the information you provide to us so that it can no longer be attributed to you if we would like to retain it for longer periods of time.
