If you do not agree with anything in this policy, your only option is to stop using our Platform.
What Information We Collect
We may collect personally identifiable information from users in a variety of ways.
Account - When you create an account with Lantern, we collect some personal information to help offer our services and make our Platform
available to you. Among that information is your name, birth date, age, gender and email address. This information allows us to address you by
name and helps us know which kinds of deals you may like. Just so you know, we do not collect or store your street address, phone number, or any payment information.
We also may allow you to create an account through an alternate means, such as by connecting
your Facebook account to Lantern. We collect similar basic information in this case from third-party sites such as Facebook.
Usage - We collect some information about usage on our Platform, such as which deals are being viewed. These can help us determine which
deals our users like and which ones they don't. Also, we collect information each time a deal is reserved, unreserved, redeemed and authorized.
We may collect location and time data for these events as well to help us understand how, where and when our community likes to use our Platform.
Along those same lines, we may collect your IP address, browser and operating system information so that we know which technology platforms
we should focus on the most to deliver the best experience to our community.
Communications with us - If you communicate with us by e-mail or otherwise (you post messages to any forums or otherwise interact with or use the features on the Platform), any information provided in such communications may be collected by us.
Children Under 13 - We do not intentionally market to or allow children under 13 to use our Platform. As such, we do not intentionally or knowingly
collect or maintain information for children under 13. If we discover that a particular user is under 13, we will take steps to remove
that user's information permanently from our Platform.
Use of Your Information
First of all, we do not sell, trade, lease or share your personal information for marketing purposes unless you give us specific permission allowing
us to do so. In general, we use information collected and generated through our Platform to provide you and others within our community a better
overall user experience, and to help our Merchants (the businesses providing the deals) understand their customers.
We may use information collected through the Platform for the specific purposes for which the information was collected, to process deals and
services offered via the Platform, to contact users regarding products and services offered by us, our Merchants, and other related companies and
our trusted affiliates, independent contractors and business partners, and otherwise to enhance users' experience with us and our Merchants,
affiliates, independent contractors and business partners. We may also use information collected through the Platform for research regarding
the effectiveness of the Platform and our business planning, marketing, advertising and sales efforts, and those of our trusted affiliates,
independent contractors and business partners.
Social Media Sharing - If your account is setup to allow us to do so, or if you manually request us to do so, we may share some of your
Lantern activities (such as when you reserve or redeem a deal) with your social networks. You can always opt out of this type of sharing by
changing your settings or choosing not to use the manual sharing options.
Opting Out - We may provide options to allow you to opt out of specific instances where we need to share your information. By choosing to opt out, you can keep your information from being shared in that instance.
Legal - If we are subpoenaed or required to by law, we will disclose only the information required to the appropriate authorities.
We may also disclose information in order to protect the rights, property or safety of a user or any other person. We may disclose information to investigate or prevent a violation by user of any contractual or
other relationship with us or the perpetration of any illegal or harmful activity.
At Lantern, we're committed to protecting your personal information, and we use industry standard security procedures and technologies to do so. Despite that, it is impossible to eliminate
all possible security risks. By accessing our Platform or providing information to us, you acknowledge that some risk still exists. We are not responsible for the circumvention of any privacy settings
or security measures relating to the Platform by any users or third parties.
We are based, and this Platform is hosted, in the United States of America. If you are from the European Union or other regions of the world with laws governing data collection and use
that may differ from U.S. law, and you are registering an account on the Platform, visiting the Platform, accessing services from us or our Platform, or otherwise using the Platform in any manner,
please note that any personally identifiable information that you provides to us will be transferred to the United States. Any such personally identifiable information provided will be processed and
stored in the United States by us or a service provider acting on our behalf. By providing your personally identifiable information, you hereby specifically and expressly consent to such
transfer and processing and the uses and disclosures set forth herein.
Correcting, Updating, Accessing or Removing Personal Information
If your personally identifiable information changes, or if you no longer desires to receive non-account specific information from us, we will endeavor to provide a way to correct,
update and/or remove your previously-provided personal data. This can be done by emailing a request to us at email@example.com. Additionally, you may request access to the personally
identifiable information as collected by us by sending a request to us. Please note that in certain circumstances, we may not be able to completely remove your information from our systems.
For example, we may retain your personal information for legitimate business purposes, if it may be necessary to prevent fraud or future abuse, for account recovery purposes, if required by law or
