Welcome to Exploita!

Exploita maintains the website at www.exploita.com and provides related services (collectively, such services, including any new features and applications, and the Site, the “Services”) subject to the following Privacy Policy (as updated and amended from time to time, this “Privacy Policy”).

Your privacy is very important to us. Accordingly, we have developed this Privacy Policy in order for you to understand how we collect, use, communicate and disclose personal information.

Pursuant to Exploita Terms of Use located at www.exploita.com/termsofuse, you must be 18 years and older to use the Services. Therefore, this Privacy Policy makes no provision for individuals under 18 years old.

1. Information Collected and How it is Used

1.1 Information That You Provide. Exploita collects personal information from you when you voluntarily provide such information through the Services (e.g. when you choose to host or purchase an experience, trip, activity or an event, utilize messaging services, register for newsletters or contact us with inquiries). This includes, but is not limited to, your name, email address, location and phone number but does not include your credit card number or billing information. All transactions are processed by CCAvenue (Avenues India Pvt. Ltd.) or PayPal. No one sees your credit card information besides CCAvenue or Paypal, not even us. Exploita will not sell or disclose your name or email address to third parties without your explicit consent, except as specified in this Privacy Policy. If you provide personal information for a certain reason, we may use the personal information in connection with the reason for which it was provided. For instance, if you contact us by email, we will use the personal information you provide to respond to your email or if you provide personal information in order to obtain access to the Services, we will use your personal information to provide you with access to such Services and to monitor your use of such Services. Exploita may also use your personal information collected through the Site to help us improve the content and functionality of the Site, to better understand our users and to improve the Services.

Exploita may store such information itself or such information may be included in databases owned and maintained by Exploita affiliates, agents or service providers. Exploita may use such information and pool it with other information to track, for example, the total number of visitors to the Site, the number of visitors to each page of the Site, the domain names of our visitors’ Internet service providers and how our users use and interact with the Services. Also, in an ongoing effort to better understand and serve the users of the Services, Exploita often conducts research on its customer demographics, interests and behavior based on the personal information and other information provided to us. This research may be compiled and analyzed on an aggregate basis. Exploita may share this non-identifiable and aggregate data with its affiliates, agents and business partners, but this type of non-identifiable and aggregate information does not identify you personally. Exploita may also disclose aggregated user statistics in order to describe the Services to current and prospective business partners and to other third parties for other lawful purposes.
