When you make a venue reservation through our Sites, your information is provided to us and to the venues with whom you choose to reserve tables at. In order to facilitate your reservation, your information is provided to that venue, just as it would if you made a reservation by calling the venue, emailing the venue, or using the venue’s website. If you provide a mobile phone number, venues may send you text messages regarding your reservation. When you make a venue reservation through our Sites and make a payment to a venue through our Sites, we may also share with the venues additional information, such as information about your dining preferences and history or information that we collect via Third-Party Platforms. You also have the option of indicating special preferences or providing comments about your reservation that Bash Network will pass on to that venue. We may share with venues summary reports of feedback from users. Information you choose to share with a venue when you make a reservation and/or pay a venue through our Sites may be used by the venue for its own purposes. Bash Network does not control the privacy practices of venues. Please contact the venue directly if you want to learn about its privacy practices.
To use certain services on our Sites, we require credit or debit card account information. By submitting your credit or debit card account information through our Sites, you expressly consent to the sharing of your information with venues, third-party payment processors, and other third-party service providers (including but not limited to vendors who provide fraud detection services to us and other third parties), and you further agree to the following terms.
We may share your credit or debit card account information with third parties as described in the section called “Payment Card Information” above.
SECURITY OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION To be clear, Bash Network does not itself store your credit or debit card account information, and we do not have direct control over or responsibility for your credit or debit card account information. Our contracts with third parties that receive your credit or debit card account information require them to keep it secure and confidential.
Other than as described above, we will never provide your information to anyone for any purpose under any circumstances.
Please be aware that, as a user of the Services, your Bash profile will be viewable by other users of the Service. Other users will be able to view information you have provided to us. Furthermore, if you accept to chat with a person, that person will see the content of your chat.
If you are a California resident, California law permits you to request certain information regarding our disclosure of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, please send an e-mail to email@example.com.
We strive to provide you with choices regarding the information you provide to us. We have created mechanisms to give you the following controls over your information:
If you do not want us to share your personal information with unaffiliated or non-agent third parties for promotional purposes, you can opt-out by sending us an email stating your request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you do not wish to have your contact information used by Bash to promote our own or third parties' products or services, you can opt-out by sending us an email stating your request to email@example.com. If we have sent you a promotional email, the email will have an “unsubscribe” feature that will allow you to opt-out of receiving future email distributions.
We do not control third parties' collection or use of your information to serve interest-based advertising. However, these third parties may provide you with ways to choose not to have your information collected or used in this way. You can also opt out of receiving targeted ads from members of the Network Advertising Initiative ("NAI") on the NAI's website.
Some of your information you can change directly in the Services. You may send us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org to request access to, correct or delete any personal information that you have provided to us. We cannot delete all of your personal information except by also deleting your user account.

If you delete your User Content from the Services, copies of your User Content may remain viewable in cached and archived pages, or might have been copied or stored by other Services users (including Venue pages, chats, etc.). We are not responsible or liable for the removal or deletion of (or failure to remove or delete) any of your User Content, including any content included in your landing pages. Access to and use of information provided via the Services, including User Content, is governed by our Terms of Service.
We have implemented reasonable measures designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration and disclosure. All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers behind firewalls.
The safety and security of your information also depends on you. We urge you to be careful about giving out information in public areas of the Services like the message boards or forums or in transactions with Bash members. The information you share in public areas may be viewed by any user of the Services.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via mobile platforms and the internet is not completely secure.
