What Does This Privacy Policy Cover?

This Privacy Policy covers Skycheckin's treatment of personally identifiable information ("Personal Information") and other data that Skycheckin gathers when you are accessing Skycheckin's Service. This policy does not apply to the practices of companies that Skycheckin does not own or control, or to individuals that Skycheckin does not employ or manage. In addition, the Service contains links to outside sources, both ones we have added ourselves and ones that members have submitted. While we attempt to provide links only to those sites that share our respect for your privacy, we cannot take responsibility for the content or privacy policies of those sites. We encourage you to carefully review the privacy policies of any web sites you visit and the third party applications you use.

What Personal Information Does Skycheckin Collect?

The information we gather from users enables us to personalize and improve our services and to allow our users to set up a user account and profile that can be used to interact with other users and airlines through the Service. In connection with the Service, we request and display some personal Information to other users and visitors of the Service, which allows users to identify each other. We collect the following types of information from our users.

Personal Information You Provide to Us

We receive and store any information you enter on our Service or provide to us in any other way. The types of Personal Information collected may include your name, user name, email address, phone number, birthday, business information, education, use information and browser information. The Personal Information you provide is used for such purposes as allowing you to interact with other users and airlines, improving the content of the Service, customizing the advertising and content you see, and communicating with you about specials and new features. We may also draw upon this Personal Information in order to adapt the services of our community to your needs, to research the effectiveness of our network, and to develop new tools for the community.

Personal Information Collected Automatically

We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with our Service or services. When you use the Service, Skycheckin automatically receives and records information on our server logs from your browser or mobile platform including your location, IP address, cookie information, and the page you requested.

Generally, our service automatically collects usage information, such as the numbers and frequency of visitors to our site and its components and users who use our application, similar to TV ratings that indicate how many people watched a particular show. This type of aggregate data enables us to figure out how often users use parts of the Service or services so that we can make the Service appealing to as many customers as possible, and improve those services. As part of this use of information, we may provide aggregate information to our partners , particular airlines about how our customers, collectively, use our site. We share this type of statistical data so that our partners also understand how often people use their services and our Service, so that they, too, may provide you with an optimal online experience and benefits.

Email Communications

We may receive a confirmation when you open an email from Skycheckin if your computer supports this type of program. Skycheckin uses this confirmation to help us make emails more interesting and helpful and improve our service. If you do not want to receive email or other mail from us, please indicate your preference during the registration process or by making a modification on your account settings page or through the 'settings' tab on our website once you're logged into the service.

Cookies

Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer's hard drive through your browser to enable our systems to recognize your browser and tell us how and when pages in our site are visited and by how many people. Skycheckin cookies do not collect Personal Information, and we do not combine the general information collected through cookies with other Personal Information to tell us who you are or what your screen name or email address is.

Most browsers have an option for turning off the cookie feature, which will prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, as well as (depending on the sophistication of your browser software) allowing you to decide on acceptance of each new cookie in a variety of ways. We strongly recommend that you leave the cookies activated, however, because cookies enable you to take advantage of some of our Service's most attractive features.

Ads appearing on the Service may be delivered to users by our advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by Skycheckin and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Sharing Of Your Personal Information

Personal Information about our users is an integral part of our business and service. Skycheckin may share your Personal Information only as described below.

  • Use of the Service: The Service is primarily designed to help you share information, including your airline, with others. This not only includes the information that you provide directly to Skycheckin, but also information that you broadcast to third party services using the Service. You can control your information through your privacy settings accessible through the 'settings' tab on our website once you're logged into the Service.
  • Information you submit to the Service will be available to users of the Service in accordance with the selected privacy settings. Your name and profile picture thumbnail will be available in search results across the Service network and those limited pieces of information may be made available to third party search engines. This is primarily so your others can find you and interact with you due to a business matter. People who see your name in searches, however, will not be able to access all of your information. That allows such access based on your privacy settings.
  • Please remember that if you choose to provide personal information using certain features of the Service, that information is governed by the privacy settings of those particular features and, unless selected otherwise, may be available to the wider Skycheckin community or may be published on the Skycheckin website, which is subject to indexing by third party search engines. Individuals reading this information may use or disclose it to other individuals or entities without our control and without your knowledge. Therefore, we urge you to think carefully about including any specific information.
  • The Service allows you to connect with certain third party services (e.g., Twitter, Facebook and other similar services). When you broadcast information to such third party services, such information is no longer under the control of Skycheckin and is subject to the terms of use and privacy policies of such third parties.
  • Airlines We Do Not Control: We might enter into relationships with a variety of airlines and work closely with them. In certain situations, these airlines sell items or provide promotions to you through Skycheckin's Service. In other situations, Skycheckin provides services, or sells products jointly with these airlines. You can easily recognize when one of these airlines is associated with your transaction, and we will share your Personal Information that is related to such transactions with that business, unless you have elected not to be solicited by marketing partners during the registration process or through the account settings page.
  • User profiles: User profile information including user name, Twitter account name, Facebook account name, and other information you enter may be displayed to other users to facilitate user interaction within the Service. Users' email addresses and phone numbers will not be directly revealed to other users by Skycheckin, except when the user chooses to email them from within the Service or chooses to display their email address and phone number on their profile page through the privacy settings.
  • Communication in response to User Submissions: Skycheckin will use your email to send you updates on when your Facebook and twitter friends check-in and a Skycheckin newsletter - however, you can opt out of all of these communications on your account settings page.
  • Promotional Offers: As part of the Service you may be exposed to offers from Skycheckin on behalf of other businesses and airlines.
  • Invitations: When you invite someone to join the Skycheckin community, please be aware that we will disclose your real name, as an invitation containing your name will be sent to the email address of the person you wish to invite. This information is necessary to make sure your invitee knows who has contacted them. To build a community based on trust and empathy, we feel this disclosure is necessary.
  • Business Transfers: In some cases, we may choose to buy or sell assets. In these types of transactions, user information is typically one of the business assets that are transferred. Moreover, if Skycheckin, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Skycheckin goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user 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 acquirer of Skycheckin may continue to use your Personal Information as set forth in this policy.
  • Protection of Skycheckin and Others: We may release Personal Information when we believe in good faith that release is necessary to comply with that law; enforce or apply our conditions of use and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of Skycheckin, our employees, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
  • With Your Consent: Except as set forth above, you will be notified when your Personal Information may be shared with third parties, and will be able to prevent the sharing of this information.
  • Non-Private or Non-Personal Information: For clarity, we may share or disclose your non-private, aggregated or otherwise non-personal information, such as the number of users who checked in at a particular airline.
