This Privacy Notice applies to information collected, used, disclosed, and maintained by OTG in conjunction with the use of the Programs, as well as other information provided to us online or offline by third parties, when we associate that information with customers or users of the Programs. However, it does not apply to information that you ask us to share with third parties or that is collected by Online Tool Providers (as further described below). You acknowledge and agree that OTG is not responsible for the data collection or use practices of any other user of the Programs or the Online Tool Providers utilized in providing the Programs.

You should check this Privacy Notice periodically for modifications by referencing the effective date posted above. We will not materially change our policies and practices to make them less protective of Personal Information collected in the past without the consent of affected users.
COLLECTION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION.
- Personal Information in General. In some cases, we may request specific permission to collect Personal Information from you. By “Personal Information we mean information that can identify or reasonably be linked to you.
- Types and Sources of Personal Information.
- Order Data. In order to place an order through the Programs, you may be required to provide Personal Information, such as your name, seat location for delivery, payment method (from available options), email address or phone number. We refer to Personal Information provided in connection with an order as “Order Data.” We do not store payment method data in a manner that would permit purchases with the information. We use a third-party payment processor who is responsible for processing payments using your payment method in a secure manner. OTG is not responsible for the information practices of this third-party payment processor, and the third-party processor’s use of your credit card number or other Personal Information is governed by the payment processor’s own privacy notice and the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard promulgated and enforced by payment card issuers.
- Registration Data. We reserve the right to require you to register or create an account with OTG in order to receive certain benefits, offers or services. In order to register or create an account with OTG, you may be required to provide Personal Information such as your name, location of residence, email address or phone number. We refer to Personal Information provided in connection with registration or account creation as “Registration Data.”
- Account Data. If you choose to scan your boarding pass, otherwise voluntarily provide us with your flight information and/or seek to use your airline’s frequent flyer points or miles or other rewards program, we may offer you certain products and services (e.g., pay with miles) and participation in certain programs based on the account associated with your airline frequent flyer or other rewards program number. In such a case, we may obtain certain Personal Information about you directly from the airline and rewards provider and may combine it with other Personal Information collected directly from you as described in this Privacy Notice. In these cases, all information associated with your airline frequent flyer or other rewards program number is or may be Personal Information. We refer to this type of Personal Information as “Account Data.”
- Location Data. We may collect Personal Information about your location when using the Programs by using mobile device location based tracking methods. Location based tracking uses methods that include GPS, wireless networks, cell towers, Wi-Fi access points, and other sensors, such as gyroscopes, accelerometers, and compasses. Your mobile device may include settings to disable the Programs’ access to your location. Please check your device and/or operating system instructions for availability and details. Note, however, that failure to opt-in to, or later opting-out of, the collection of location information will result in limitations in our ability to provide our full range of services using location-based features.
- User Experience Data. We also collect user experience recordings, which reproduce your interactions with the Programs, including mouse movements, page scrolling, information you type (including Personal Information), screen taps, and other actions you take while using the Programs. Recordings may include technical and usage data, as well as visual representations of actions you take while using the Programs. We use these recordings to help us understand how users interact with our Programs and to design a better user experience for you.
- You may also choose to communicate with us through email, text message, via the Programs, via telephone, in writing, or through any other means. We may collect all information, including Personal Information, in or about these communications.
- In general, most of the Personal Information collected will be in the form of Registration Data, Order Data, and/or Account Data (as defined above). In most instances, we will not collect any Personal Information from you unless you voluntarily submit such information to us. In most instances, you are not required to provide us with any Personal Information to use or access the Programs. However, if you choose not to provide certain Personal Information, you may not be able to make purchases or receive certain products offers or services.
- Consolidating the Information We Collect. We may combine any of the information described in this Privacy Notice, including Personal Information we collect directly from you or from Outside Contractors, with information collected automatically through your use of the Programs, including Personal Information and Non-Identified Information (described below), for any of the purposes described in this Privacy Notice. In the event that we link any Non-Identified Information with Personal Information, we will treat such information as Personal Information in accordance with this Privacy Notice.
HOW WE MAY USE PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT.
In general, we may use the Personal Information to help us and our Outside Contractors to process and fulfill orders for products and services placed by using the Programs, understand who uses the Programs and how it is used, to personalize the user’s experience, to assist the user in using the Programs and to improve the Programs. More specifically, we may use the Personal Information collected by the Programs for the following purposes and for other similar purposes:
- to establish and verify the identity of users;
- to open, maintain, administer, and service users’ accounts or memberships;
- to respond to inquiries and fulfill requests and otherwise provide our services, including fulfilling purchase and service orders placed though use of the Programs;
- to personalize users’ experience, including, without limitation, collecting and storing order preferences and user behavioral information for future use;
- to communicate with users or Outside Contractors regarding orders (e.g., sending electronic receipts of purchases via email or text message), account creation (e.g., welcome email), to confirm user options and preferences, or in order to provide or offer services, or deliver electronic newsletters and other information or news about services or the Programs;
- to promote products and services on our behalf and on behalf of Outside Contractors, including by sending promotional text messages and emails on our behalf or on behalf of our Outside Contractors, which promotions may be targeted based on your use of the Programs; and

COLLECTION AND USE OF NON-IDENTIFIED INFORMATION.
When you use or access any of the Programs, we and our Outside Contractors may also collect information about you, your mobile device, and your use of the Programs that does not identify you, such as demographic information (e.g., age, profession or gender), anonymous device, advertising and other identifiers that cannot reasonably be connected to your identity, and information about the date and time you used the Programs, the pages you accessed while using the Programs, and the Internet addresses of the websites (e.g. URL) you visited that were linked to the Programs (collectively, “Non-Identified Information”). We and our Outside Contractors also collect Non-Identified Information from or about the mobile phones or other mobile devices where you install or access the Programs, depending on the permissions you have granted.
We use Non-Identified Information to help us understand the characteristics of people who use the Programs, and to improve and market the Programs in general. We may store anonymous web and order data as Non-Identified Information or associate certain order behaviors to specific flights based on flights a user has informed us such user is taking in the near future.
We also use the Non-Identified Information collected automatically by our servers primarily to help us administer and improve the Programs. In the event that we link any Non-Identified Information with Personal Information, we will treat such information as Personal Information and only use such information in accordance with this Privacy Notice.

HOW WE MAY SHARE INFORMATION WITH THIRD PARTIES.
- Disclosure to Our Affiliates. We may disclose your Personal Information to our Affiliates. For the purpose of this Privacy Notice, “Affiliates” means any person or entity which directly or indirectly controls, is controlled by, or is under common control with us, whether by ownership or otherwise. Any Personal Information relating to you that we provide to our Affiliates will be treated by those Affiliates in accordance with this Privacy Notice.
- Disclosure to Airline Partners. We may share Personal Information obtained from Registration Data, Order Data, or Account Data (e.g., from and after boarding pass scanning) with our airline partners, and we may allow our airline partners to use such data for their other applications or services. The Personal Information we share may include the type of payment method a customer uses to pay for products or services purchased through use of the Programs.
- Disclosure to Our Outside Contractors. We may contract with business partners (such as an airline or rewards provider), vendors or suppliers (collectively, “Outside Contractors”) to participate in or provide specific services related to the Programs (e.g., internet access, payment processing, advertising, etc.) and to offer or provide retail products and services through use of the Programs. These Outside Contractors may sometimes have limited access to Personal Information collected by the Programs, including your Personal Information, in the course of providing products or services to you and/or us. Access to your Personal Information by these Outside Contractors is limited to the information reasonably necessary in order for the Outside Contractors to perform their limited function.
- Sharing of Aggregate Non-Identified Information. Some of your Non-Identified Information may be shared as a part of a larger set of statistics, but that information will not be sufficient to permit the recipient to identify you. For instance, we may provide Non-Identified Information to Outside Contractors regarding the number of unique users who use the Programs, the demographic breakdown of the users of the Programs, or the activities that users of the Programs engage in while using the Programs. The Outside Contractors to which we may provide this information may include potential or actual advertisers, providers of advertising services (including website tracking services), airlines, sponsors, licensees, researchers, and other similar parties.
- Disclosure in Limited Circumstances. Notwithstanding the foregoing, we may also use and disclose Personal Information outside the normal use of the Programs in the following limited circumstances: (i) if we are required to do so by law, (ii) if we have the good faith belief that such action is necessary to conform to applicable laws or comply with legal process served on us (e.g., to comply with a search warrant, subpoena, or court order), (iii) to respond to requests from public or government authorities, (iv) to detect, prevent or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues, (v) to enforce our terms and conditions, (vi) to prevent a crime or protect national security, or (vii) to protect you or the rights or property of a third party or another user of the Programs.
- Acquisition, Sale, Reorganization, or Bankruptcy of the Business. As we continue to develop the Programs and our businesses, we might acquire other business entities or assets or sell, license, or transfer business entities or assets to third parties. In such transactions, customer information, including Personal Information, generally is one of the assets acquired or transferred. Also, we may transfer information, including your Personal Information, to a third party in the event of a sale, merger, transfer of all or substantially all of our assets, a controlling interest in us is acquired, or in the unlikely event of a bankruptcy, liquidation, or receivership of our business. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to notify you of such transfer, for example via email or by posting notice on our website.
OTHER WEBSITES, LINKS, ADVERTISERS AND INTERNET PROVIDERS.
COOKIES AND AUTOMATIC INFORMATION COLLECTION.
- Pixels. A pixel, tag or web beacon is a small, usually-transparent image or script placed on a web page that allows the operator of that image or script, which may be the operator of the website you visit or a third party, to read or write a Cookie.
INTERNET AND INFORMATION SECURITY ISSUES.
Information collected by the Programs is stored in secure operating environments that are not available to the public. Our employees or Outside Contractors are required by us to maintain and uphold your privacy and security and are aware of our privacy and security policies and/or abide by their own privacy and security policies in order to safeguard your Personal Information. We will also use reasonable efforts to safeguard the confidentiality of your Personal Information. Unfortunately, data transmissions made by means of the Internet cannot be made absolutely secure. Please keep in mind that if you give out Personal Information online, such information may be collected and used by unauthorized third parties. Although we strive to protect your privacy and your Personal Information, WE CANNOT ENSURE OR GUARANTEE THE SECURITY OF ANY INFORMATION YOU PROVIDE TO US. Further, to the extent permitted by applicable law, we will have no liability for disclosure of Personal Information due to errors in transmission or unauthorized acts of third parties.

We will use reasonable efforts to change or remove your Personal Information from our files to the extent that we are not otherwise entitled or required to retain such Personal Information pursuant to document retention policies, other agreements or applicable law.
NOTE that requests to opt-out of receiving communications from us or for deletion of your Personal Information will not result in the deletion of Personal Information such as an email address or phone number that is retained solely as a part of Order Data. In addition, if you submit a written request to opt-out of receiving communications from us or for deletion of your Personal Information, a copy of the request itself may be retained and/or logged pursuant to our record retention policies.
