1. Acceptance of Privacy Policy
Each time you access, use, register with, or browse the Services, or provide information to Baarb, you signify your acceptance of Baarb's then-current Privacy Policy, which applies to Baarb's collection and use of your information. If you do not accept this Privacy Policy, you are not authorized to access, use or browse the Services, or to provide information to Baarb and must discontinue your use of the Services immediately.
This Privacy Policy may be revised or updated from time to time. Accordingly, you should check the Privacy Policy regularly for updates. Should the Privacy Policy be revised, Baarb will post the changes on the Services and the new Privacy Policy will be effective immediately upon posting. If Baarb makes any material changes to the Privacy Policy, in addition to posting the revised Privacy Policy to the Services, Baarb will notify you in the manner and to the extent required by law. You can determine when the Privacy Policy was last revised by referring to the “Last Updated” date at the top of this page.
2. Types of Information Collected
We may collect personally identifiable information from you including, without limitation, non-public information about you that helps Baarb identify you, such as first and last name, birth date, business title, employer, email address, employer or personal address, telephone number, password, gender, account username and password, information regarding hotels and accommodations you book, information you provide to third parties when you book accommodations (e.g., credit card, debit card and other payment information, billing and shipping information, booking history, and contact information such as your address and telephone number), and other information that you provide to us or that is generated through your use of the Services or interactions with Baarb or third parties that are not otherwise publicly available.
We also may collect non-personally identifiable information about you, such as information regarding your use of the Services, your IP address, usage statistics regarding the Services, time stamps, browsing history, general geographic location, type of device you use to connect to the Services, type of operating system you use (e.g., Microsoft Windows, Google Chrome OS, Mac OS, Android or iOS), the type of browser you use (e.g., Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer, Safari), the domain name of your internet service provider, and information regarding your Internet location when you see Baarb's ads and whether you click on such ads. We also may receive certain aggregated or anonymous information regarding users of the Services such as the age, gender, occupation, zip code, interests, hotel preferences, and language preferences of users of the Services, as well as information collected through questionnaires and surveys. If you are using the App, we may collect additional non-personally identifiable information about your device such as hardware model, distinctive identifiers for your device (e.g., MAC address, IMEI number, IMSI number, etc.) certain of your selected settings with respect to your device, and the cellular carrier that provides your device with cellular services. “Non-personally identifiable information” refers to information that does not personally identify the individual to whom the information relates, such as information that is aggregated by Baarb or a third party, or information that is not linked to contact information or other personally identifiable information of an individual.
In the event that any of the non-personally identifiable information that we collect about you is maintained, used or shared in a manner that associates it with your name, contact information or other personally identifiable information, it will be treated as personally identifiable information. If you are logged into a Baarb account, information such as the content you access, view, click on, download or search for when on the Services, the devices from which you access such content and the length of time for which you view same and other information regarding how you access, browse and use the Services, may become personally identifiable. In such an event, Baarb will treat such information as personally identifiable information.
3. How We Collect Information
We may collect personally identifiable and/or non-personally identifiable information about you when you:
By using the Services, or by submitting your personally identifiable information to Baarb online or offline, you expressly consent to the storage and processing of your personally identifiable information in the United States or other jurisdictions, in accordance with applicable laws in those jurisdictions.
We may obtain personally identifiable and/or non-personally identifiable information from third parties such as the owners or operators of the websites or applications where our advertisements appear (some of which may partner with Baarb or with an advertisement network used by Baarb), our service providers, affiliates, suppliers, vendors, distributors, Activities partners and sponsors, and other sources (e.g., offline records or publicly available information). We may combine personally identifiable information we collect with information that we obtain from these sources. We will treat any such combined information as personally identifiable information.
Baarb automatically receives and records non-personally identifiable information on our server logs from your browser as well as through other analysis of the Services. We also may collect information using cookies, web beacons, pixels, gifs, tags or similar technologies ("Collection Technology"), or through third parties using similar technologies. Collection Technology may operate as a piece of data stored on your browser or device, or may identify, compile, aggregate and/or collect information through other means. When you visit the Services, your web browser or the App may use Collection Technology to better enable you to navigate the Services during your visit and upon your return. You may use the Services even if you choose to reject or delete certain Collection Technology. Collection Technology also may be used by some of the other websites for which a link is placed on the Services.
The Services may use Google Analytics.

Please note that after clicking the link and following the instructions provided therein, even if our third party advertisers or display networks participate in the Digital Advertising Alliance’s Self-Regulatory Program for Online Behavioral Advertising and you opt out of targeted advertising based on web activity tracking, you still may receive standard advertisements from us and targeted advertisements from third parties. You may need to re-click the link and follow the instructions provided therein if you delete cookies or other Collection Technology or use a different computer, device or browser.

Baarb may share the personally identifiable information it collects with its affiliates, subsidiaries, business partners, vendors, and other third parties for their direct marketing purposes.
We also may share your information in response to a subpoena, legal order or official request, when we believe you have acted in violation of the Terms of Use, to investigate, prevent or take action regarding suspected illegal activities, fraud or potential threats, or to exercise legal rights or defend against claims, when we believe that doing so may protect your safety or the safety of Baarb or others, or as otherwise permitted or required by law.
We also may use and share non-personally identifiable information with other third parties. Additionally, we may take personally identifiable information and de-identify it and share it in a de-identified or aggregated form with advertisers, business partners, and/or other third parties in order to analyze the usage of the Services, demographics, or interests, improve the Services or Baarb’s products or services, perform work or support on the Services, improve the user experience, or for similar purposes. We will not re-identify such data and we will ask our contracting parties to agree to keep the data in its de-identified form.
When you create an account, you may be prompted to create a profile. Remember that when you include information on your profile and in in your Projects and when you share information with other users of the Services, such information may be publicly available, indexable by search engines, and collected and used by users of the Services, as well as others, without compensation and without notice.
The Site also may contain social plugins for other websites, such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, LinkedIn, etc. We recommend reviewing the privacy policies with respect to the social plugins for each of these websites, prior to clicking on such plugins.
