Please note, if you do not provide the Operator with certain personal information which is required to provide the Service to you, it may affect your ability to use the Service.
As you know, the Operator only provides the Service to facilitate Consumers to purchase/sell goods/service from Venues. As such, the Operator is not responsible for the validity, completeness or accuracy of the information provided by Consumers or Venues. Thus, the Operator is under no duty or capacity to filter or monitor the personal information it collects, and collects personal information in the form as they are provided by the relevant person or entity.
The Operator recognises that the Service may allow you to remove or delete personal information from the Service, however, the Operator does not guarantee that you will always be able to remove or delete personal information, nor that any personal information provided by you can be recalled or altered and will be the absolute property of the Operator.
The Operator notes that in the event it wishes to sell its business, including the Service or any part thereof, it may transfer all personal information that it collects to the purchaser of the business as a ‘business asset’. The Operator may also transfer or assign personal information in the course of corporate divestitures, mergers or dissolutions.
The Operator may from time to time implement a referral service to promote the Service or any business related to it. If you elect to use any referral-type service available on the Service or Site, you may be asked to provide a friend's name and email address or mobile phone number. In doing so, you warrant to the Operator that you have obtained your friend’s consent to you providing such information to us and to the Operator sending your friend an email or text message with an invitation to him or her to visit the site, containing an introductory offer and your details. The Operator stores this information for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email and tracking the success of the referral program. Any referred potential user may contact the Operator via any method of contact available on the Site, and request that the Operator remove this information. You agree to indemnify the Operator for all losses it incurs in resolving any claims against it that arose from acting upon the information you supply through its referral service in the way herein stated.
