Privacy policy

Our Privacy Commitment

Lend Me It, Inc. (“Lend Me It,” “we,” “us” or “our”) is committed to respecting the privacy rights and concerns of all users of Lend Me It’s website and mobile app where this Privacy Policy is posted (the “Site” or the “App”) and other services made available by Lend Me It (collectively with the Site, the “Service”). As such, we have established and implemented this Privacy Policy to inform visitors to the Site and users of the Service and App how we use and protect the information we collect and store through the Service. By accessing the Site or App or using any of the Service, you consent to Lend Me It’s collection, use, storage, deletion and disclosure of information relating to you as set forth in this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy is effective as of the date set forth above and is only applicable to the Service and not to any other website that you may be able to access from the Service which may have its own data collection and use practices and policies.

    This policy answers the following questions:
  • What information do we collect about you and how do we use it?
  • Will we share your personal information with third parties?
  • What choices do you have about the collection and use of your personal information?
  • What security measures do we take to safeguard your personal information?

What information do we collect about you and how do we use it?

Types of Information We Collect

Personal information means information that can be used to identify and contact you. You do not need to submit personal information to access the Service generally. However, you may be required to submit personal information to access certain aspects of the Service, including those which allow you to create an account, rent products or engage in services from us. We may also collect non-personal information such as your browser type and when and from what location you access the Services. Geolocation data is collected per your permission and is used to show you the nearest items that are available for rent. Further, the information collected may be aggregated to measure the number of visits, average time spent, page views, access times and other statistics about users of the Service. We may also use this data to monitor the Service’s performance and to make the Service easier and more convenient to use (e.g., to strengthen search engine optimization for rentals).

We collect personal information when you create an account through the Service, participate in registration forms, make a rental through the Service, and receive customer or technical support offered through or in connection with the Service. The information we collect, without limitation, includes name, email address, screen name, phone number, credit card or debit card numbers, age, gender, birthdate and [driver’s license number or identification card number].

To create an account through the Service, we require you to provide certain information, including your name, email address, screenname, phone number and a username. Alternatively, you may create an account for the Service using “Facebook Login”, a service provided by Facebook, Inc. (“Facebook”). To use Facebook Login, you will be required to enter your Facebook credentials. First-time users will see a consent screen hosted on the Facebook website to grant Lend Me It permission to access specific information. After you consent, we will be able to securely access your Facebook account information in order for us to create a new Lend Me It account and provide a personalized user experience for you. Providing additional information beyond what is required to create an account, such as your mailing address or a profile photo, or messaging other users is optional, but enables you to more fully utilize the Service. When making a rental through the Service, you will also be required to provide a credit card number and billing address or other payment information.

By submitting personal information through the Site or App, you authorize Lend Me It to share this personal information for the purposes identified herein, such as responding to user inquiries, processing transactions, distributing materials, and requesting feedback.

Third Party Privacy Policies

Through the Service, you may be able to link to technology, software and services owned and controlled by third parties (“Third-Party Features”). You may be permitted or required to submit personal information to access Third-Party Features. Such use of Third-Party Features and submission of information through Third-Party Features will be subject to such applicable third party’s terms of use, terms of service and privacy policy. You agree to look solely to the applicable third party and not to Lend Me It to enforce your rights in relation thereto. When you have clicked on a third-party logo or URL displayed on the Site or App, or accessible through the Service, which links you to any Third-Party Features, our Privacy Policy and Terms of Use no longer applies and you must read the terms of use, terms of service and privacy policy of the third party to see how your personal information will be handled on their website.

How We Use Your Personal Information

The personal information you provide to us will allow us to communicate with you and provide the Service to you. This includes handling your customer service questions or issues, alerting you of new products, services, features, or enhancements to the Service, processing orders, and notifying you of promotions, updates or special offers that we think may interest you. We may also use your email address as part of the Service to send you messages about the Service as well as other general announcements. We keep track of your interactions with us, including but not limited to your activity within the Service. Except as set forth in this Privacy Policy, or unless we have your consent, we will not share your personal information with any person or entity other than those affiliated with us, entities acting on our behalf, and relevant third parties such as those needed to collect and maintain our servers and perform technology and related services.

We may use your personal information with non-personal information that we have collected in a manner such that the end-product does not personally identify you or any other user of the Service. We may make your personal information non-personally identifiable by either combining it with information about other users (aggregating your personal information with information about other users), or by removing characteristics (such as your name or email address) that make the information personally identifiable. This process is known as de-personalizing your information. You grant us a royalty-free, worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable and fully transferable right and license to use your personal information in connection with the creation and development of analytical and statistical analysis tools relating to the use of the customer data we collect in providing the Service (the “Analytical Data”). We are expressly authorized to make any commercial use of the Analytical Data, including without limitation, sharing the Analytical Data with third parties, provided that we do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer from us any part of the Analytical Data that personally identifies any Service users.

Do Not Track

In compliance with California legislation, AB370, effective January 1, 2014, Lend Me It’s practices in responding to “do not track” signals and collecting user information over time and across a network of websites when you visit the Site or App are as follows: We do honor the request of “do not track” signals sent by your browser when you visit the Site. Additionally, Lend Me It may collect user information about your online activities over time and across different websites and may authorize third parties to do so.

Cookies and Third Parties

“Cookies” are small bits of electronic information that a website sends to a visitor’s browser and are stored on the visitor’s hard drive. Like many websites, we employ cookies in certain areas of the Site to allow us to provide information to make your online experience more convenient. For example, when you return to the Site after logging in, cookies provide information to the Site so that the Site will remember who you are on subsequent visits, speeding up or enhancing your experience of the Service by, for instance, tailoring content to you. Cookies may also be used to keep track of your login name and password. While Lend Me It does not use cookies to track your visit to the Site or the App, third parties whose websites are accessible through links on the Site may also use their own cookies when you link to their site or service. Lend Me It does not control these third parties’ use of cookies and cannot guarantee that they will uphold the same privacy standards as Lend Me It. Lend Me It expressly disclaims any and all liability related to the collection, use or disclosure of information by third parties. You should review the privacy policies of any third-party sites that you visit through a link from the Site or App to understand how these third parties use cookies and the information they collect through cookies. Most cookies are “session cookies” which means that they are automatically deleted at the end of each session. Most browsers are initially set to accept cookies. You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, giving you a chance to decide whether or not to accept it.

Log Information

Our servers automatically record information that your browser sends whenever you visit the Site or the App. This information includes, among other things, your Internet Protocol address, your browser type and version, the search engine you used to find the Service, if any, which aspects of the Service you use and from where, and when and how long you use them. We use this information to monitor and analyze how users use the Service, to provide customer service and to maintain and improve the Service. We may also collect similar information from emails we may send to you which then help us track which emails are opened and which links are clicked by recipients. The information allows for more accurate reporting and improvement of the Service.

Device Information

When you use the App or access the Site by or through a mobile device (including but not limited to smart-phones or tablets), we may access, collect, monitor and/or remotely store one or more “device identifiers,” such as a universally unique identifier. Device identifiers are small files or similar data structures stored on or associated with your mobile device, which uniquely identify your mobile device. A device identifier may be data stored in connection with the device hardware, data stored in connection with the device’s operating system or other software, or data sent to the device by us. A device identifier may convey information to us about how you browse and use the Site, and may remain persistently on your device, to help you log in faster and enhance your navigation through the Site.

Children’s Privacy

We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13 or allow them to create an account for the Service. We take children’s privacy seriously and encourage parents to play an active role in their children’s online experience at all times.

Will we share your personal information with third parties?

Sharing Your Information

We use your personal information to provide the Service to you, deliver products and services you request, complete transactions, handle your customer service questions or issues and send communications to you about promotions, updates, or special offers from Lend Me It that may be of interest to you. The personal information uploaded by you through the Service will be shared only with authorized persons to whom you specifically grant access. We may also use your depersonalized personal information to provide analyses of our users in the aggregate (including Analytical Data subject to the terms of this Privacy Policy) to prospective partners and other third parties. We will also share the personal information we collect from you under the following circumstances, and you expressly authorize us to share your information as follows:

  • Service Providers. We may share your personal information with service providers (including our affiliates that provide services on our behalf) that we engage for the purpose of processing information on our and your behalf (e.g., Stripe online payment processing service). Additionally, we may partner with other companies to process, analyze, and/or store data, including, but not limited to, Analytical Data. While providing services for us, these companies may access your personal information. To the extent applicable, we require these entities to comply with this Privacy Policy and appropriate confidentiality and security measures.
  • Asset Transfers. If we become involved in a merger, acquisition or other transaction involving the sale of some or all of Lend Me It’s assets, user information, including personal information collected from you through your use of the Service, could be included in the transferred assets. Should such an event occur, we will use reasonable means to notify you through email and/or a prominent notice on the Site.
  • Protection of Rights. We will share personal information with appropriate third parties if we have a good faith belief that (i) access, use, preservation or disclosure of such information is reasonably necessary to satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process, such as a court order or subpoena, or a request by law enforcement or governmental authorities, (ii) such action is appropriate to enforce our Terms of Use for the Service, including any investigation of potential violations thereof, (iii) such action is necessary to detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues associated with the Service, or (iv) such action is appropriate to protect the rights, property or safety of Lend Me It, its employees, users of the Service or others.

Additional Information You Should Know About Third Parties

The Service may contain direct links to websites operated by our partners and other entities. These third-party websites may collect information about you when you visit them or otherwise communicate with them. This Privacy Policy does not cover the information practices of third-party websites linked to the Site or accessible through the Service. Although we encourage such third parties to adopt and follow their own privacy policies, we are not responsible for their collection and use of your personal information. You should refer to the privacy policies and statements of other websites or contact the respective webmasters of those websites to obtain information regarding their information collection, use and disclosure policies.

What choices do you have about the collection and use of your personal information?

Opting Out of Receiving Communications From Us

If you no longer want to receive emails or other announcements, you may unsubscribe by contacting us at help@lendmeit.com. Please note that you cannot unsubscribe from certain correspondence from us, including messages relating directly to your account.

Mediation

You agree that, in the event any dispute or claim arises out of or relating to this Privacy Policy, you and Lend Me It will attempt in good faith to negotiate a written resolution of the matter directly between the parties. You agree that if the matter remains unresolved for forty-five (45) days after notification (via certified mail or personal delivery) that a dispute exists, all parties shall join in mediation services in Los Angeles, California with a mutually agreed mediator in an attempt to resolve the dispute. Should you file any arbitration claims, or any administrative or legal actions without first having attempted to resolve the matter by mediation, then you agree that you will not be entitled to recover attorneys’ fees, even if you would otherwise be entitled to them.

What security measures do we take to safeguard your personal information?

The personal information that you provide to us is stored on servers which are protected by protocols and procedures designed to ensure the security of such information. We restrict access to personal information to Lend Me It employees, independent contractors and agents who need to know this information in order to develop, operate and maintain the Service. All Lend Me It personnel who have access to this information are trained in the maintenance and security of such information. However, no server, computer or communications network or system, or data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect user information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or through the use of the Service and you acknowledge and agree that you provide such information and engage in such transmissions at your own risk. Once we receive a transmission from you, we will endeavor to maintain its security on our systems. Additionally, we do retain private data, which includes the last four digits of your credit card number and the expiration date and the items you rented or lent, after the transaction for which such information is provided has been processed.

In the event that personal information you provide to us is compromised as a result of a breach of security, when appropriate we will take reasonable steps to investigate the situation, notify you and take the necessary steps to comply with any applicable laws and regulations.
