Privacy Policy

 

Last revised: April 10, 2020

The Dyrt (“we” or “us”) is committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected. The policies below explain how we collect and use your data and information through thedyrt.com (the “website”), mobile applications, social media sites and handles, email, and other online services (our “Services”).

We also include specific disclosures for residents of California.

This policy applies when you interact with our Services. It also applies anywhere it is linked. It does not apply to websites or mobile applications other than the Dyrt’s that may link to the services or be linked to or from the services; please review the privacy policies on those websites and applications directly to understand their privacy practices.

We may change this policy from time to time by updating this page and such changes will be effective from the date they are posted. You should check this page from time to time to review it for any changes. Your continued use of the website and related services serves as your agreement to those changes. If any changes cause us to materially and retroactively change the purposes for which we use information we collected from you, we will obtain your consent. For additional information about our Services, please see our Terms of Use.

What information we collect

Information you give us

Some of the Services may include features or services that permit you to enter contact information and other information about you. We collect and store any information you enter on our Services. This includes information such as: your name, contact information (such as email address) and demographic information (such as age, education, gender, interests, state and zip code).  We may collect your personal information under the following circumstances:

  • When you register for a user account on the website;
  • When you sign up to receive alerts or emails from us;
  • When you confirm a booking or engage in a transaction;
  • When you request customer service from us or otherwise communicate with us with service related inquiries;
  • When you participate in communities, comment threads and other interactive aspects of the website; or
  • In any other instance where you knowingly volunteer your personal information.

Some of this information may be collected by external parties on our behalf. For example, we use a payment processor when you engage in a transaction in connection with one of our Services; the Dyrt does not itself collect or store payment card information.

Information we collect automatically

When you interact with the Services, certain information about your use of our Services is collected automatically. This includes:

  • Device information about your computer, mobile device, or other device that you use to access our Services, such as IP address, geolocation information, unique device identifiers, browser type, browser language, and other transactional information;
  • Analytics and usage information about your use of the website;
  • Additional “traffic data” and log files such as time of access, date of access, software crash reports, session identification number, access times, and referring website addresses;
  • Information about how you interact with our ads and newsletters, including whether you open or click links in any correspondence; and
  • Information that you make available to us on a social media platform (such as by clicking on a social media icon linked from our Services), including your account ID or username and other information included in your posts.

Much of this information is collected through cookies, web beacons, and other tracking technologies, as well as through your web browser or device. We rely on partners to provide many features of our Services using data about your use of our website and online services.

California Consumer Privacy Act

The California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) provides California residents with rights to receive certain disclosures regarding the collection, use, and sharing of “Personal Information,” as well as rights to know/access, delete, and limit sharing of Personal Information. The CCPA defines “Personal Information” as “information that identifies, relates to, describes, is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular consumer or household.” Certain information we collect may be exempt from the CCPA because it is considered public information (i.e., it is made available by a government entity) or covered by a specific federal privacy law, such as the Gramm–Leach–Bliley Act, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, or the Fair Credit Reporting Act.

To the extent that we collect Personal Information that is subject to the CCPA, that information, our practices, and your rights are described below.

You have the right to be free from discrimination based on your exercise of your CCPA rights.

Right to Notice at Collection Regarding the Categories of Personal Information Collected

You have the right to receive notice of the categories of Personal Information we collect, and the purposes for which those categories of Personal Information will be used. This notice should be provided at or before the time of collection. The categories we use to describe the information are those enumerated in the CCPA.

  • Personal Identifiers:
    • We collect your name, phone number, and email address when you create an account or complete a transaction. If you choose to create an account, you will also be asked to create a username, and we will assign one or more unique identifiers to your profile.

    • We collect your social media handle and basic account information when you interact with our Services through social media.

  • Geolocation Data: As described above, we collect your IP address automatically when you use our Services. We may be able to determine your general location based on the IP address. When you use the Services for the first time, we may ask for your permission to collect your precise location (e.g., your GPS coordinates). If you allow your device to provide us with this information, we use it to provide and make improvements to our products and services, and to provide recommendations and deliver relevant advertising.
  • Audio, electronic, visual, thermal, olfactory, or similar information: We do not collect your photographic or video image unless you provide it to us. We do not collect thermal, olfactory, or similar information about you.
  • Professional or employment-related information: We collect information about your current employer and your employment history in order to conduct background and other screening activities if you submit an employment application to us.
  • Education information: We collect information about the institutions you have attended and the level of education you have attained in order to conduct background and other screening activities if you submit an employment application to us.
  • Inferences drawn to create a profile about a consumer reflecting the consumer’s preferences or characteristics: We may analyze your actual or likely preferences based on the personal information we collect about you. On some occasions, we may add our observations to your internal profile. We use this information to gauge and develop our marketing activities, measure the appeal and effectiveness of our Services, applications, and tools, and to provide you with targeted information, advertisements, and offers.

We may use any of the categories of information listed above for other business or operational purposes compatible with the context in which the Personal Information was collected.

We may share any of the above-listed information with Service Providers, which are companies that we engage for business purposes to conduct activities on our behalf. Service Providers are restricted from using Personal Information for any purpose that is not related to our engagement. The categories of Service Providers with whom we share information and the services they provide are described in our Privacy Policy above in the section titled “How we share information.”

We also sell some information to third parties, as described below. To opt-out of the sale of your information please email info@thedyrt.com with the subject line “Do Not Sell My Information”

Right to Know/Access Information

You have the right to request access to Personal Information collected about you and information regarding the source of that information, the purposes for which we collect it, and the third parties and service providers with whom we share it. You may submit such a request as described below. To protect our customers’ Personal Information, we are required to verify your identify before we can act on your request.

Right to Request Deletion of Information

You have the right to request in certain circumstances that we delete any Personal Information that we have collected directly from you. You may submit such a request as described below. To protect our customers’ Personal Information, we are required to verify your identify before we can act on your request. We may have a reason under the law why we do not have to comply with your request, or why we may comply with it in a more limited way than you anticipated. If we do, we will explain that to you in our response.

How to Submit a Request to Exercise Your Rights

You may submit a request to exercise your rights to know/access or delete your Personal Information through any one of three means:

We will not use Personal Information submitted for the purpose of a Consumer Data Request for any purpose other than to effectuate your request.

Verification Procedures

In order to process your request to know/access or delete Personal Information we collect, disclose, or sell, we must verify your request. We do this by asking you to:

  • Provide personal identifiers we can match against information we may have collected from you previously, and confirm your request using the email or telephone number stated in the request; or
  • Having you submit your request through the Privacy Page in your account, which will automatically verify your identify and will result in faster processing of your request.

Authorized Agent

You may authorize another individual or a business registered with the California Secretary of State, called an authorized agent, to make requests on your behalf. We will require the authorized agent and you to each verify your identities.

Right to Opt-Out of Sale of Personal Information to Third Parties

You have the right to opt-out of any sale of your Personal Information by us to third parties.

We sell information to third parties. To “sell” information means to disclose it to a company for monetary or other benefit. A company may be considered a third party either because the purpose of sharing is not an enumerated business purpose under California law, or because our contract does not restrict them from using Personal Information for other purposes.

We sell the following information:

  • Personal Identifiers:
    • We provide your email address to our advertising and marketing partners.
    • We provide your email address, IP address, Device ID, and unique identifier to our analytics, advertising, and marketing partners, and our business partners.

To exercise your right to opt-out of the sale of your Personal Information, please email us at info@thedyrt.com or call us at (971) 266-3695.

Please note that your right to opt-out does not apply to our sharing of Personal Information with service  providers, who are parties we engage to perform a function on our behalf and are contractually obligated to use the Personal Information only for that function.

We may also disclose information to other entities who are not listed here when required by law or to protect our Company or other persons, as described in our Privacy Policy above.

Right to Information Regarding Participation in Data Sharing for Financial Incentives or Price or Service Differences

We offer two types of financial incentives or price or service differences.

  • We offer you the opportunity to receive discounts from our brand partners and to participate in sweepstakes. These benefits are available to you if you submit your email address to us (or a service provider operating on our behalf). We may submit your email address to our brand partners, who may contact you with offers of their own products and services.
  • We offer you the ability to sign up for Pro membership, which is a paid service. We ask you to submit your contact information, including email address and physical address, to create an account.

Our Terms of Use, and any terms that we may make available to you when you choose to participate in a contest or sweepstakes, describe the terms and conditions applicable to these offers.

When we make your Personal Information available to brand partners, we receive compensation from them. The compensation we receive depends on the partner.

At the time you sign for these benefits, we will ask you for your consent to collect your Personal Information. You may withdraw from these benefits at any time by contacting us using the methods listed in “How to Submit a Request to Exercise Your Rights” above.
