Merchants, Service Providers, Business Partners and Others
We may employ third party companies and individuals to facilitate our service, to provide service on our behalf, to perform website related services (including but not limited to payment processing, maintenance services, database management, web analytics and improvement of HareShare’s features) or to assist us in analyzing how our website and service are used and can be improved. These third parties have access to your Personal Information only for purposes of performing these tasks on our behalf.
Third party websites and services
Via the HareShare Service, we may feature certain links to the websites and services of our partners, suppliers, advertisers, sponsors, licensors and other third parties (the “Links”). We reserve the right to control and maintain who may place Links on our site, and we reserve the right to remove the Links at any time. We do not control the content or links that appear on these sites and are not responsible for the practices employed by websites and services linked to or from the HareShare Service. In addition, these sites or services, including their content and links, may be constantly changing. These sites and services may have their own privacy policies and customer service policies. Browsing and interaction on any other website or services, including those linked to or with the HareShare Service, is subject to that website’s or service’s own terms and policies. When you access a linked website or service you may be disclosing private information. It is your responsibility to keep such information private and confidential.
Compliance with Laws and Law Enforcement
HareShare must cooperate with government and law enforcement officials and private parties to enforce and comply with the law. In the event of a claim and/or legal process (including but not limited to subpoenas), to protect the property and rights of HareShare or a third party, to protect the safety of the public or any person, or to prevent or stop any activity we may consider to pose a risk of being illegal, unethical, inappropriate or legally actionable, we reserve the right to disclose any information about you to government or law enforcement officials or private parties as we in our sole discretion find necessary or appropriate.
Changing or Deleting Your Information
HareShare takes the security of your Personal Information seriously. We appreciate your membership, and will employ reasonable measures designed to protect your information from unauthorized access and unsolicited contact from third party groups. To that end, all sensitive personal information (credit card data) is transmitted through secure networks supported by high-grade encryption.
However, please note that data that is transported over an open network, such as the Internet, online/cellular networks or e-mail, may be accessible to anybody. We cannot guarantee the confidentiality of any communication or material transmitted via such open networks. When disclosing any personal information via an open network, you should remain mindful of the fact that it is potentially accessible to others, and consequently, can be collected and used by others without your consent. In particular, while individual data packets are often encrypted, the names of the sender and recipient are not. A third party may therefore be able to trace an existing bank account or relationship or one that is subsequently created. Even if both the sender and recipient are located in the same country, data may also be transmitted via such networks to other countries regularly and without controls, including to countries that do not afford the same level of data protection as your country of domicile.
Your data may be lost during transmission or may be accessed by unauthorized parties. We do not accept any liability for direct or indirect losses as regards the security of your Personal Information or data during its transfer via Internet. Please use other means of communication if you think this is necessary or prudent for security reasons.
A user under the age of thirteen (13) (a “Young User”), must have their parent or legal guardian (a “Parent Registered User) register to use the HareShare Service, using the Parent Registered User’s name, email, and credit card information, and consent to a Young User’s use of the HareShare Service. Parent Registered Users are responsible for updating the settings of and terminating their account and thereby use of the HareShare Service by the applicable Young User. In connection with use of the HareShare Service, Parent Registered User may provide certain information concerning Young Users for transportation services arranged via tools available on the mobile application and for notification and security purposes, including a Young User’s email address or mobile phone number, name, pick-up and drop-off information (including residence and school or other activity locations), and miscellaneous notes. Any such information is provided by the Parent Registered Users at their own risk and we strongly advise Parent Registered Users to exercise caution in relation thereto. As HareShare cannot determine when a Young User is making use of the HareShare mobile application under Parent Registered User account, HareShare cannot determine if and when information may actually be provided by a Young User. If a Parent Registered User becomes aware that their Young User has submitted personal information about that Young User without the consent or authorization of the Parent Registered User, please contact us at email@example.com, and we will take reasonable steps to remove such data from our system.
