Privacy Policy

1. Introduction

1.1 What We Do

Welcome to Hosted Here! Hosted Here provides a streamlined way for Hosts to create, manage, and share their events. The platform also allows visitors or browsers to discover, register and manage such events

1.2 Users When this Policy uses the term "Host" we mean event creators using the Hosted Here Platform "Platform"  to create events displayed on the Platform for Attendees using our Platform (a) to browse information about or attend Events ("Attendees"), or (b) for any other reason. Hosts, Attendees and third parties using our Platform are all referred to in this Policy collectively as "Users," "you" or "your".

This Privacy Policy describes our collection, use and disclosure of information that we receive when you use our Platform. All terms used in this Privacy Policy that are not defined herein have the meanings set forth in our Terms and conditions.

3. Collection of Information

3.1 Overview Security and privacy is a top priority for Hosted Here, which is why we use Plausible to to assist with Site analytics and tracking usages. Plausible allows us to track analytics for both internal use, but also for Host usage, and helps both Hosted Here and Hosts improve the experiences we deliver. With Plausible we have the ability to display and track instances such as event views. By agreeing to these Terms, you also agree to the Plausible Terms and Privacy Policy..

3.2 Collection of Personal Data When you use or interact with us through the Platform, we may collect Personal Data, by both Hosted Here and Plausible. Sometimes this will be on our own behalf and other times this will be on behalf of a Host using our Platform to host and promote an event. This is an important distinction for purposes of certain data protection laws and is explained in more detail below.

3.3 Information Collected From All Users Information you provide to us: For all Users we collect Personal Data when you voluntarily provide such information to the Platform, such as when you register for access to the Platform, register for an event, contact our team, or browse or use certain parts of the Platform. The Personal Data we may collect includes without limitation your name, email address and any other information that you choose to provide and/or that enables Users to be personally identified.

3.4 Host Information

If you are a Host we will collect additional Personal Data from you to build your Host Profile Page. Information may include your city/locations where you host events, your preferred pronouns, your company/brand name, and links to other sites, such as your social media accounts and website. We partner with Stripe to process payment transactions, and by using the Platform, you also agree to Stripe's Terms..

3.5 Attendee Information

If you are an Attendee we will collect additional Personal Data from you, sometimes for our own purposes and other times on behalf of a Host. As Hosted Here partners with Stripe to handle all payment processing, we do not collect any financial information such as credit card information. All financial data is secure and protected via Stripe. The Platform may collect certain data on behalf of a Host when you are registering for their event. Hosts have the ability to ask Attendees custom questions, such as dietary restrictions, name of guests, and more. When you register for, or otherwise provide information to Hosted Here in conjunction with a Host event or activity, whether that information is yours or a third party's, in connection with a registration, that Host will receive and may use the information you provide.

3.6 Information from Other Sources: We may also collect or receive Personal Data from third party sources, such as Hosts, social media or other third party integrations, our payment processing partners or other third parties.

5.1 Overview In order to provide our Hosts with the necessary tools to run their events through the Platform, and also to provide Attendees with the best possible experience, we allow Hosts to receive Personal Information from their attendees, as well as perspective attendees, such as those Users who have signed up for an event waitlist.

5.2 Data Sharing via Event Registration When you register for an event, sign up for waitlist, or otherwise input your Personal Data to communicate with an Host or participate in an Host event, that Host will receive that information. For instance, if you input your name and email address into a web form for a Host event, the Host will receive that information. The Host may then send you marketing or other communications, which may be subject to its own, separate privacy policy. As mentioned in Section 3.5, Hosts have the ability to ask Attendees custom questions during the registration process. Therefore, when you register or purchase a ticket to an event, all answers to custom registration questions will be available for the Host's use.

We are not responsible for the actions of these Hosts,, or their Third Party Organizers (or other downstream recipients of your Personal Data), with respect to your Personal Data.

5.3 Host Email Features

We allow Hosts to use our email features to contact Attendees for their current and past events, so you may receive emails from our system that originate with such Hosts and that we send on their behalf. If you registered for an event on the Platform, your email address is available to that Host However, Hosts may also export the email addresses they have gathered from the Platform to other external sources for their personal marketing purposes.  Hosted Here is not responsible for the emails sent to Attendees by Hosts through external sources.

6. Data Storage

We may store Personal Data itself or such information may be stored by third parties to whom we have transferred it in accordance with this Privacy Policy. We take what we believe to be reasonable steps to protect the Personal Data collected via the Platform from loss, misuse, unauthorized use, access, inadvertent disclosure, alteration and destruction.

Therefore, you should take special care in deciding what information you send to us electronically. Please keep this in mind when disclosing any Personal Data.
