Thank you for choosing Ahimsabnb. This Privacy Policy (the “Policy”) covers how we collect, use, store, and share your information when you use the Ahimsabnb website (ahimsabnb.com), blog, and related services (the “Services”). Any reference to “we”, “our”, and “us” in this Policy refers to Ahimsabnb, Inc., which operates the Services.

We will never collect personal information about you without your permission. When you agree to our Terms of Service and use our Services, you grant us permission to collect the following information about you:

  • Personal information you voluntarily provide us when you sign up for the Services via our website. This information may include your name, address, billing information, city and state, email address, and/or phone number.
  • Information we collect automatically as you use the Services. To improve the relevance of the listings we display to you via the Services, we may collect information about your location such as your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, geo-location, and the unique device identifier number of the device from which you access our Services.

We will use the personal information we collect about you to provide you with the functionality of our Services and to provide you with timely information about our Services, including updates about our product offerings and changes to our Terms of Services and this Privacy Policy.

Other Anonymous Data

When you visit our website (“Site”), we may also collect generic, anonymous information that does not identify you. This may include, but is not limited to, such information as the Internet address assigned to your computer, the number and frequency of visitors to our Site, the web pages you visit before and after our Site, and your computer browser information. We use this information to improve your experience.

3. COOKIES AND ANALYTICS

We do not use third-party cookies. However, we may use first-party cookies (both session cookies and persistent cookies), web beacons, and web bugs in delivering our Services. You can modify your browser setting to disable cookies or other technologies. But if you do, certain parts of our Services may not work properly. Since we do not use third-party cookies in the first place, a “Do Not Track” signal in the HTTP header from your browser or mobile application does not affect our cookie practices. We may also use third-party services, such as Google Analytics, which use first-party cookies to collect generic, anonymous information that does not identify you. We use this information to improve your user experience while using the Services.

4. SHARING YOUR INFORMATION

Regarding third parties, when you make a payment via our Services, we do not collect the financial information you provide. Rather, the information is sent to our partners, Stripe and PayPal. We cannot assume responsibility for the privacy practices of our partners. To review the privacy policies for our partners, please visit the following links:

Other than as described above, we do not share your information with any third parties without your consent, unless we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to (1) comply with the law, (2) protect and defend our rights or property, or (3) prevent an emergency involving danger of death or serious physical injury to any person.

We will notify you if we receive government requests about your data, unless otherwise prohibited from doing so by law.

We take several steps to ensure the safety of your information. These steps include technical safeguards such as end-to-end encryption, HTTPS access, and AWS “RDS” with SSL Certification layers. They also include administrative safeguards such as limiting internal access to personal information based on a need-to-know basis and training and educating our employees on data security and privacy. These measures are intended to prevent the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information that we obtain from you. Such loss, misuse, and alteration may occur despite our best efforts to protect your information. We are not responsible to our users or to any third party due to any such loss, misuse, or alteration.

Our Services may include public areas, including your public profile, which allow you to post and share your information with the members of the Ahimsabnb community. Please remember that information that is disclosed in these areas may becomes public information, and you should exercise caution when deciding to disclose your personal information. If you have any concerns regarding the information on our public forums, we encourage you to email us directly at admin@ahimsabnb.com.

Any time that we plan on making a material change to this Policy, we will notify you at least 30 days prior to making the change by sending you an email. If you continue to use the Services after that 30 day period, you consent to the new Policy. We will always have the latest version of this Policy posted on our website.
