MOUNTAIN TAXI PRIVACY POLICY

Mountain Taxi is firmly committed to protecting the privacy of our customers and visitors to our website. This page details how we collect information from customers and visitors, what we do with that information, how secure the information is kept and what options you have available regarding our mailing lists.

We are committed to protecting the security of the information from clients that register for newsletters, and fill out our questionnaires.

  1. We collect personal information when you register for a trip quote or otherwise voluntarily provide such information to provide a better user experience.
  2. We prevent unauthorized access, and we do not sell, rent, or loan our subscriber or customer lists to third parties for email marketing.
  3. Please note: Mountain Taxi will never send you email requesting your user name, password, credit card number or any of your personal information. If you receive an email request from or representing any of the above, asking you for any of your personal information, it’s a fraudulent email. We recommend that you inform the appropriate authorities and delete the email.
  4. We send our newsletters only to those who request them, but cannot prevent people from subscribing their friends. We do include the ability to immediately unsubscribe in every one of our newsletters.
  5. The personally identifiable information you provide to us for making a travel reservation is made available to the applicable hotel, airline or auto rental agency for the purpose of completing your reservation request.

Personal data that is processed when you create a Mountain Taxi account:

When you create a Mountain Taxi account, we ask you to provide your email address and name. You can choose to provide only your first name or a nickname instead of your full name if you wish.

PURPOSES AND LEGAL GROUNDS:

(a) Mountain Taxi processes your email address because you use your email address to sign in to your account. The legal ground for processing your email address for this purpose is based on Mountain Taxi’s legitimate interest in protecting the security of your account.

(b) Mountain Taxi also processes your email address for the purpose of sending you important information about your Mountain Taxi products, apps or account, such as important safety information or material changes to this Privacy Policy. The name you provide is associated with your account profile, and is displayed when you submit comments or other material on a Mountain Taxi website or app. The legal ground for processing your email address and name for these purposes is Mountain Taxi’s legitimate interest in providing you important safety or other information about your Mountain Taxi products, apps or account or material changes to this Privacy Policy, and in providing you an opportunity to engage with other Mountain Taxi users.

(c) If you provide your opt-in consent to receiving marketing information from Mountain Taxi, Mountain Taxi will also process your email address for the purpose of sending you marketing information about Mountain Taxi products and apps. The legal ground for processing your email address for this purpose is your consent. You may withdraw your consent at any time by changing your preferences in your Mountain Taxi account or through the unsubscribe link at the bottom of our marketing emails. The marketing emails you receive from Mountain Taxi are based on the preferences you provide in your Mountain Taxi account, the locale indicated by your Internet Protocol (IP) address, the types of Mountain Taxi devices you have added to your Mountain Taxi account, and any subscriptions included in your Mountain Taxi account. The legal ground for processing this data for this purpose is Mountain Taxi’s legitimate interest in reducing the number of marketing emails sent to each particular customer by selecting which customers receive a particular marketing email rather than sending every marketing email to every customer who has consented to receiving marketing emails.

(d) Mountain Taxi also processes your email address to associate it with your Mountain Taxi account when you interact with our customer support representatives. The legal ground for this processing is our legitimate interest in providing quality customer support.

Personal data that is processed when you communicate with Mountain Taxi:

When you interact with our customer support representatives via email, telephone, online or in person, we collect personal data, such as your name, mailing address, phone number, email address and contact preferences; and information about the Mountain Taxi products you own, such as their serial numbers and date of purchase.

To improve customer service, subject to applicable laws, we may also record and review conversations with customer support representatives, and analyze any feedback provided to us through voluntary customer surveys. With your consent, our customer support representatives may sign in to your Mountain Taxi account, if appropriate, to help troubleshoot and resolve your issue.

PURPOSE AND LEGAL GROUND:

We use this information to provide you with customer and product support and to monitor the quality and types of customer and product support we provide to our customers. The legal ground for processing this information for these purposes is Mountain Taxi’s legitimate interests in providing quality product support. The legal ground for signing in to your Mountain Taxi account, if appropriate, to help troubleshoot and resolve your issue is consent, which you may withdraw.

Personal data that is processed when you purchase a product on a Mountain Taxi website__:

If you purchase a product on a Mountain Taxi website, then Mountain Taxi will collect your name, mailing address and telephone number. We do not view or store your payment card information. A third party, Borgun and Bokun, processes customer payment card information when Mountain Taxi customers use a payment card to make a purchase on a Mountain Taxi website. We recommend you carefully review Borgun and Bokun Privacy Policy.

PURPOSE AND LEGAL GROUND:

We collect your name, mailing address and telephone number so we can process your order and fulfill your purchase. The legal ground for processing your name, mailing address and telephone number for these purposes is performance of a contract. We also process your personal data as part of our fraud detection processes. The legal ground for processing your personal data for that purpose is our legitimate interest in protecting Mountain Taxi and our customers from attempts to engage in fraudulent transactions.

Categories of Recipients of Personal Data

Other disclosures:

We may disclose personal data about you to others: (a) if we have your valid consent to do so; (b) to comply with a valid subpoena, legal order, court order, legal process, or other legal obligation; (c) to enforce any of our terms and conditions or policies; or (d) as necessary to pursue available legal remedies or defend legal claims. We may also transfer your personal data to an affiliate, a subsidiary or a third party in the event of any reorganization, merger, sale, joint venture, assignment, transfer or other disposition of all or any portion of Mountain Taxi business, assets or stock, including, without limitation, in connection with any bankruptcy or similar proceeding, provided that any such entity that we transfer personal data to will not be permitted to process your personal data other than as described in this Privacy Policy without providing you notice and, if required by applicable laws, obtaining your consent.
