Privacy Policy

NOW NEXT MEDIA, LLC (“Operator”, “we”, “our”, or “us”), a New York Limited Liability Company, provides this Privacy Policy to inform you of our policies and procedures regarding the collection, use and disclosure of personal information we receive via our Service (as defined in the Terms of Service Agreement). Please review this Privacy Policy frequently, as it may be updated from time to time. When you use the What Now What Next website, you are subject to our Terms of Service and the terms of this Privacy Policy.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the products or services of our business partners or to any other third parties, even if their products or services are linked to, or embedded within, our Service. For example, we may provide social media features as part of our Service that enable you to share information with your social networks and to interact with us or others on various online social media networks. Your use of such features may result in the collection or sharing of information about you, depending on the feature. Please review the privacy statements of the other parties with whom you interact before submitting your information.

1. Collection and Use

For the purposes of this Privacy Policy, “Personal Information” means information that can be used to uniquely identify you, such as your name, address, phone number, user name, and email address.

When you interact with us, we, or a third party acting on our behalf, may ask you to supply Personal Information. For example, when you create an account with us, subscribe to newsletters or promotional materials, make a purchase, or otherwise use our Service, we may ask you to provide information such as your name and/or email address.

If you decide you no longer wish to receive communications from us, please follow the unsubscribe instructions as provided in our communications to you, or update your user preferences by logging into your user account on the Website. Please note that we may use your Personal Information to contact you with important notifications, such as notices with respect to safety or changes to our terms, conditions, and policies; you may not opt out of these notifications.

We also use your Personal Information to provide, enhance and personalize our Service and related content, services, and marketing efforts. We may also use it to authenticate your information, enhance your experience with this community, answer your questions, process orders and payments, communicate with you regarding Service updates, offers, alerts, promotions, and events; protect the rights or property of Operator or our users, and prevent fraud and other prohibited or illegal activities, or as we may otherwise disclose to you at the time of collection. The following are examples of a variety of ways that we may use your Personal Information. We may use your Personal Information:

to provide you with the best user experience possible;
to respond to your questions;
to process your orders and payments;
to communicate with you regarding Service updates, offers, alerts, promotions, and events;
to help us develop, customize, deliver, support and improve our Service, products, content, and advertising;
to help authenticate any account you create with us;
to administer promotions and contests;
to protect the rights or property of Operator or our users, and prevent fraud and other prohibited or illegal activities;
to protect the security of our products, services, and business; for our internal purposes (such as auditing, data analysis, and research to improve our products, services, and communications); and otherwise, as disclosed to you at the point of collection.

We may offer message boards, blog features, or similar public forums where you and other users of our Service can post content or otherwise communicate. The protections described in this Privacy Policy do not apply when you provide information (including personally identifiable information about any person) in connection with your use of these public forums. We may use your user name and other information about you to identify you with a posting in a public forum. Any information you share in a public forum is public information and may be seen or collected by other persons, including third parties that do not adhere to the standards set forth in this Privacy Policy. We are not responsible for events arising from the distribution of any information you choose to publicly post or share through our Service.

We also collect Personal Information when you register to join the Service (or otherwise interact with the Service) by logging into an account that you already have with a third party social networking platform (“SNP”) via our Service. For example, we may allow you to create an account through Facebook Connect. If you log into the SNP via the Service, you are using the Personal Information you have already provided to the SNP (such as your “real” name, email address, and other information you make available via the SNP) to create your account on our Service. Accordingly, if you use Facebook Connect in connection with our Service, you are allowing us to access the Personal Information in your Facebook account pursuant to Facebook’s terms and conditions governing your use of the Service via Facebook. The information we receive from an SNP may depend on the privacy settings you have with the SNP, so please check the SNP’s privacy and data practices.

We may use a variety of technologies to record usage information. This information may include your IP address, browser type, your web or application request, your interaction with our Service, the webpages or other features you were using before or after you came to our Service, pages of our site that you visit, information you search for via our Service, access times and dates, and other similar information. We use this information for a variety of purposes, including analyzing and enhancing our products and services, and to help personalize our Service for you. We and our third-party service providers may automatically collect Non-Identifying Information using various methods, including, without limitation, cookies.

We may collect, use, transfer, and disclose information in a form that does not personally identify you (“Non-Identifying Information”) for any purpose. Non-Identifying Information can include certain personally identifiable information that has been de-identified; that is, information that has been rendered anonymous. We and/or our third party service providers obtain Non-Identifying Information about you from information that you provide us, either separately or together with your Personal Information. We and/or our third party service providers also automatically collect certain Non-Identifying Information from you when you access our Service. We currently do not respond to “Do Not Track” requests.

Certain Non-Identifying Information about you would be considered a part of your Personal Information if it were combined with other identifiers in a way that enables you to be identified. However, the same pieces of information are considered Non-Identifying Information when they are taken alone or combined only with other Non-Identifying information. We may combine your Personal Information with Non-Identifying Information and aggregate it with information collected from other users or sources to attempt to provide you with a better experience, to improve the quality and value of our products and services, and to analyze and understand how our products and services are used. We may also use the combined information without aggregating it to serve you specifically.

We and our third-party service providers may use a variety of technologies, now and hereafter devised, that automatically record certain usage information. This information may include your Internet Protocol address (and other unique identifiers for the particular device you use to access the Internet), browser type, your web or application request, your interaction with our Service, the webpages or other features you were using before or after you came to our Service, pages of our site that you visit, information you search for via our Service, access times and dates, and other similar information. We use this information for a variety of purposes, including analyzing and enhancing our products and services, and to help personalize our Service for you. We do not treat this information as Personal Information (except to the extent required by law), although if we combine it with the Personal Information you provide, we will treat the combined information as Personal Information. We and our third-party service providers may automatically collect Non-Identifying Information using various methods, including, without limitation, cookies. Non-Identifying Information may be provided to third parties.

2. Information Sharing and Disclosure

Except as described in this Privacy Policy, we will not share your Personal Information with other companies or individuals outside of Operator unless we have received your consent. Non-Identifying Information may be provided to third parties in order to process your transactions.

3. Your Password and Account Security

To use certain features and functionalities of the Service, you must create an account with us, and provide certain personal information about yourself to us. You agree and understand that you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of passwords associated with any account you use to access the Service.

If you become aware of any unauthorized use of your password or of your account, you agree to notify us immediately via this form

4. Our Service Providers and Other Third Parties

We may engage third party companies and individuals to perform services on our behalf (e.g., without limitation, payment and order processing, software maintenance services, email notifications, database management, web analytics and other services). These third parties may have access to your Personal Information. If they do, this access is provided so that they may perform these tasks on our behalf and we ask that they not otherwise use or disclose your Personal Information, except to the extent required by law. As stated in our Terms of Service, we use Sharetribe to host our marketplace. You can review their Terms of Use here and their Privacy Policy here. We process payments on our site via PayPal. Paypal’s User Agreement can be accessed here and their Privacy Policy can be found here.

5. Security

We employ appropriate security measures to protect your Personal Information from unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure, or destruction. These security measures include administrative, technical, and physical precautions to safeguard your Personal Information against loss, theft, and misuse. Please be advised, however, that while we strive to protect your Personal Information and privacy, we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information you disclose or transmit to us online and are not responsible for the theft, destruction or inadvertent disclosure of your personally identifiable information.
