Privacy Policy

Effective as of July, 2020

 

WTO Holdings, Inc. (“WTO,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) has designed this privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) in accordance with the idea that people care deeply about how the information they provide to us is used and shared.  This Privacy Policy relates to the information collection and use practices of WTO in connection with our WhatToOrder mobile application (the “App”), our web-based menu management portal (the “Menu Manager”) and our web-based data terminal (the “Insight Monitor”).  The App, Menu Manager and Insight Monitor are collectively referred to as the “Platform.

 

Acceptance of Terms

By visiting, downloading or purchasing our Platform, you are agreeing to the terms of this Privacy Policy.  Capitalized terms not defined in this Privacy Policy shall have the meaning set forth in the applicable Terms of Use or other governing agreement.

 

The Information We Collect and/or Receive

In the course of operating the Platform and/or interacting with you, WTO will collect (and/or receive) the following types of information, which may include personal information. You authorize us to collect and/or receive such information.

 

  1. Personal Information

 

We do not collect any personal information from you, unless you provide it voluntarily, such as by registering with us, sending us an e-mail, or interacting with us via our social media pages.  To register an account on the App, you must provide an email address.  In addition, you have the option of providing three pieces of demographic data on the App: (i) your birthdate, (ii) your home zip code, and (iii) your gender.  To gain access to the Menu Manager and Insight Monitor, you must provide your name, email address, your business or company name and your title.

The platforms on which our social media pages reside are operated by third-party social networks and are subject to their terms of use and privacy policies.  If you use such third-party social media platforms through our Platform, such as to register with us, you are authorizing WTO to collect, store, and use, in accordance with this Privacy Policy, any and all information that you agreed could be provided to us through their application programming interface (“API”).  Such information may include, without limitation, your first and last name, username, profile picture, unique identifier and access token, and e-mail address.  All information we collect and/or receive under this section is collectively called “Personal Information.”

 

  1. Payment Information

 

If you purchase access to the Insight Monitor, to process your payment, you will be required to provide to us certain billing information, which may include a credit card number, expiration date, bank account information, billing address, activation code, and similar information (collectively, “Payment Information”). You authorize our third-party payment vendors to collect, process, and store such Payment Information in accordance with their respective privacy policies.  We reserve the right to change our payment vendors at any time, or to use additional payment vendors, at our discretion. By purchasing  access to the Insight Monitor, you agree to be bound by the terms and conditions and privacy policies of our third-party payment vendors.

 

  1. Geolocational Information

 

While you are using the Platform on a mobile device, we may, with your consent, automatically collect geolocational information from your mobile device, wireless carrier, and/or certain third-party service providers.  Such information is collectively called the “Geolocational Information.”  Collection of Geolocational Information occurs only when the Platform is running on your mobile device.  You may decline to allow us to collect Geolocational Information, but if you do some of the core functionality of the Platform, such as a “current location”-based search, will be unavailable to you.

The Platform implements Google Maps and Google Places to offer location-enabled services.  By accessing or using the Platform, you agree to be bound by Google’s Privacy Policy (http://www.google.com/policies/privacy), which may be modified or updated by Google from time to time.  Google’s Privacy Policy is incorporated herein and made a part of this Privacy Policy by this reference.

 

  1. Usage Information

 

We collect details regarding your activty on the App, including search queries, the application of search filters, navigation to various pages on the Platform, menu browsing activity, engagement with individual menu items, rating of locations or individual menu items, navigation to third-party sites such as reservation, delivery and review platforms, as well as other activities (the “Usage Information”).

This Usage Information is aggregated with the Usage Information generated by all other users of the Platform, and made available as part of access to the Insight Monitor.  We have designed the Insight Monitor in such a way that individual user information cannot be identified, and thus we believe your activity on the App will effectively remain anonymous.

 

  1. Other Information.

 

In addition to the Personal Information, Payment Information, Geolocational Information and Usage Information, we may automatically collect or receive additional information regarding you and your use of our Platform as well as information regarding your computer or other devices used to access our Platform (collectively, the “Other Information”). We may use this information for purposes such as assisting in monitoring and troubleshooting errors and incidents, analyzing traffic, or optimizing the user experience.
