Privacy Policy
This privacy policy sets out how Sesquis Operations Limited and Sesquis Vita Limited (SVL) ( collectively, Sesquis) uses and protects any information that you and other Users ("the Users") give Sesquis when you use this website, accessible at www.sesquis.com and any other websites through which Sesquis makes the Services available (collectively, the “Site”) and as an application for mobile devices (the “Application”). Unless otherwise defined in this Privacy Policy, terms used in this Privacy Policy have the same meanings as in our Terms of Service www.sesquis.com/terms

Sesquis is committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected. Should we ask you to provide certain information by which you can be identified when using this website, then you can be assured that it will only be used in accordance with this privacy statement.  
Sesquis may change this policy from time to time by updating this page. You should check this page from time to time to ensure that you are happy with any changes. This Privacy Policy applies to all European Union countries except Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy (including the Vatican City), Netherlands, Poland and Spain.

Processing of Data in Countries outside of Europe
Your information may be processed and maintained on computers located outside of the European Economic Area where the privacy laws may not be as protective as those in your jurisdiction. In particular, Sesquis may transfer personal information to the United States and processes it there. However, we will endeavour to secure a protection of your Personal Information at any time and any place which is comparable to the standard of protection granted under the terms of this Privacy Policy.

Personal and Identify Information
When you register with us through the Site or Application and become a User and when you choose to create a Profile or make a Post or utilise the Matching or make a booking, or when you wish to contact another User, we will ask you for personally identifiable information. This refers to information about you that can be used to contact or identify you ("Identity Information"). Identity Information includes, but is not limited to, your name, phone number, email address and home postal address, but does not include your credit card number or billing information. If you disclose the same address in your Profile or a Post create as that of your credit card billing address, that address would be considered Identity Information. When you create a Profile or a Post, some information is required, like your name and email address and your postal address (“Personal Information”) other information is optional, like your date of birth. We require address confirmation for Addresses included in Profiles. We use your Personal Information to provide the Services and enable the Matching.

We collect Personal Information in connection with your registration to join us. You can register to join via the Site or Application by completing the required forms. You can also register to join by logging into online accounts you may have with third party service providers ("SNS") (e.g. Facebook) - each such account is hereinafter referred to as a "Third Party Account" - via our Site or Application as described below. As part of the functionality of the Site, Service and Application, you may link your Sesquis Account with Third Party Accounts, by either: (i) providing your Third Party Account login information to Sesquis through the Site, Service or Application; or (ii) allowing Sesquis to access your Third Party Account, as is permitted under the applicable terms and conditions that govern your use of each Third Party Account. You represent that you are entitled to disclose your Third Party Account login information to Sesquis and/or grant Sesquis access to your Third Party Account (for use for the purposes described herein), without breach by you of any of the terms and conditions that govern your use of the applicable Third Party Account and without obligating Sesquis to pay any fees or making Sesquis subject to any usage limitations imposed by the applicable SNS. If you decide to register by logging into a Third Party Account via our Site or Application, we will obtain the Personal Information you have provided to the applicable SNS (such as your "real" name, email address, profile picture, names of SNS friends, names of SNS groups to which you belong, other information you make publicly available via the applicable SNS and/or other information you authorize Sesquis to access by authorizing the SNS to provide such information) from your Third Party Accounts and use that information to create your Sesquis Account and Sesquis Account profile page and you will become a User. Depending on the Third Party Accounts you choose and subject to the privacy settings that you have set in such Third Party Accounts, you understand that by granting us access to the Third Party Accounts, we will access, make available and store (if applicable and as permitted by the SNS and authorized by you) the information in your Third Party Accounts so that it is available on and through your Sesquis Account on the Site, Service and Application. We will only obtain information about your "friends" or people with whom you are associated in your Third Party Account if the privacy settings of such people with the applicable SNS allow our access to their data.

What we do with the information we gather
We require this information to understand your needs and provide you with a better Service, and in particular for the following reasons:
Internal record keeping. 
We may use the information to enable Booking and Matching. 
We may periodically send promotional emails about new products, special offers or other information which we think you may find interesting using the email address which you have provided.  
From time to time, we may also use your information to contact you for market research purposes. We may contact you by email, phone, fax or mail. We may use the information to customise the website according to your interests.

We do not store credit card details nor do we share customer details with any 3rd parties. Monetary transactions which arise through the provision of the Services will be handled directly by a verified third party payment processor, such as PayPal.

System Identifiers
When you visit the Site and Application, whether as a User or a non-registered user just browsing (any of these, an "Sesquis User"), our servers automatically record information that your browser sends whenever you visit a website ("System Identifiers"). These System Identifiers may include information such as your computer's Internet Protocol address ("IP Address"), browser type and other log data or the webpage you were visiting before you came to our Site and Application, pages of our Site and Application that you visit, the time spent on those pages, information you search for on our Site and Application, access times and dates, and other statistics. We use this information to monitor and analyze use of the Site, Application and the Service and for the Site and Application's technical administration, to increase our Site and Application's functionality and user-friendliness, and to better tailor our Site and Application to our visitors' needs. We also use this information to verify that visitors to the Site meet the criteria required to process their requests. We do not treat System Identifiers as Personal Information. Except as set forth below, we do not use System Identifiers in association with Personal Information, though we may aggregate, analyze and evaluate such information for the same purposes as stated above regarding other Non-Identifying Information. If you are a User, we may associate your System Identifiers with your Personal Information in certain circumstances: (i) We will use the combination of your IP Address and Personal Information in order to provide a local language version of the Site and Services to you. (ii) Sesquis uses certain verified third party service providers to provide (a) fraud detection and prevention services and (b) payment processing services, such as PayPal to Sesquis for use of the Site and Services; as noted in the Section below, entitled “Information Sharing and Disclosure” these third party service providers may have access to Personal Information about Sesquis Users and corresponding System Identifiers, including IP Addresses, in order to provide the applicable fraud detection and prevention services and payment processing services.

Web Beacons
Our Site and Application may contain electronic images known as Web beacons (sometimes called single-pixel gifs) and are used along with cookies to compile aggregated statistics to analyze how our Site and Application are used and may be used in some of our emails to let us know which emails and links have been opened by recipients. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of our customer communications and marketing campaigns.

Emailing Via a Sesquis Account
As part of the Service, Users may communicate with each other through use of the "Message User" feature on the Site and Application. Where Users have selected the option of adding one or more email addresses to an online form, the message they create in the corresponding template will be sent from Sesquis to those email addresses on their behalf. These email addresses will be used only for the purpose of sending the one-time email communication to the addressee. Via the "Message User" feature of the Site and Application, you may also speak with other Users over the phone. In these instances, Sesquis will not share your phone number with the other User, but will use your phone number to contact you over the phone to connect you with the other User.
If you choose to use our referral service to refer a friend, we will ask you for your friend’s email address. We will automatically send your friend a one-time informative email inviting him or her to visit the Site. Sesquis uses such email addresses for the sole purpose of sending these one-time emails. Your friend may contact us at unsubscribe@sesquis.com to request that we remove this information from our database.
You can import contacts from your email account address book to invite them to send you a recommendation. We collect, but do not store, the username and password for the email account you wish to import your contacts from and will only use it for that purpose only.

Phishing
Identity theft and the practice currently known as "phishing" are of great concern to Sesquis. Safeguarding information to help protect you from identity theft is a top priority. We do not and will not, at any time, request your credit card information, your Sesquis Account ID, login password, or national identification numbers in a non-secure or unsolicited e-mail or telephone communication.

Information Sharing and Disclosure

Please bear in mind that the more information you provide in this secure manner, the more accurate the Matching.

Postss
If you create a Post, we may display that Post via the Site and Application and may enable third parties to publish your Post on their websites through the use of an HTML "widget". We may also display the geographical location of your Post in the form of a map so that potential Clients can see the general area and neighbourhood of your Post, but your actual Profile will not be disclosed until you enter into a confirmed transaction with another User, in which case we will disclose your actual street address to such other User.

If you request to make a booking via the Site, Application and Service, Sesquis will share the following information about you with the applicable Solver: (i) your first and last name, (ii) a link to your Sesquis Account profile page, (iii) the names of any members of an SNS with whom you are "friends" or associated on the SNS if such individuals are also "friends" or associated with the Solver on such SNS, and (iv) an indication that the name that you provided to Sesquis when you became a User matches the name that you provided to the SNSs to which you have linked your Sesquis Account. All of this information will enable the Solver to decide whether to confirm or reject your booking. When a Solver confirms a booking we will share pieces of the Solver’s Identity Information, including, but not limited to, full name, phone number, and the Solver’s email address, with the applicable Client selected by the Solver and we will share pieces of the Client’s Identity Information with the Solver, including, but not limited to, full name, phone number and email address, so that the Client and Solver may contact one another directly.
