- Location information while you are using the app.
If you ever decide to stop using Booster, (and we hope that you don’t!), you can ask us to delete your account.
Please be advised, that while our system is designed to carry out deletion practices automatically, we cannot promise that deletion will occur within a specific timeframe. There may be additional legal requirements to store data and we may need to delay deletion practices if we receive a valid legal request asking us to preserve content or if we have received reports of abuse or violations of Booster’s Terms of Service. We may also retain certain information in backup for a limited period of time or as required by law.
CONTROL OVER YOUR INFORMATION
In order for you to be in control of your information, we provide you with the following tools. If you are a California resident, please see the “Privacy Information for California Residents” section below for specific information about your rights under California privacy laws.
Download Your Data
At any point in time, you can access and edit your basic account information in the app. If you would like to get information which is not available in Booster’s app, you can contact firstname.lastname@example.org which will provide you with this additional data. Because your privacy is of the utmost importance to us, we may ask you to verify your identity and provide additional information before we let you access or update personal information. We may need to refuse this request for a number of reasons, including, for example, that the request risks the privacy of others or is unlawful.
Revoking or Changing Permissions
You can always change your mind about letting us use your information and revoke or change permission by changing the settings within the Booster app. If you choose to do this, certain Services may lose complete functionality. If you would like to revoke permission, you can do this by going into the “Settings” section of the Booster app.
If for any reason you decide you would like to have your Booster account deleted, all you need to do is send an email to email@example.com. Once you have initiated the deletion of your account, during the first 30 days, your account will only be deactivated. This is so that if you have a change of heart, and wish to reactivate your account, this can occur quickly and effortlessly. After 30 days, your account will be permanently deleted, so long as Booster is not required to retain certain information. Booster may be unable to delete your account if there is an outstanding credit or there is an unresolved claim or dispute. Upon the resolution of the issue preventing account deletion, Booster will delete the account.
Booster may also retain certain information if it is necessary for our legitimate business interests, such as fraud prevention and enhancing user safety and security. An example of this would be if Booster closed a user account because of fraud, then we may retain certain information about that account to prevent that user from opening a new Booster account in the future.
- Account Reactivation. If you wish to reactivate your account, it’s as easy as logging back into Booster like you normally would within 30 days of deactivation.
Marketing Notification Preferences
We send you notifications that we believe are helpful and informative about Booster’s Services. If you ever wish to amend your notifications, and opt-out of receiving these notifications, you can do so in the app by going into “Settings” and then “Notifications”. Please be advised that even if you opt-out, we may still send you non-promotional notifications, such as receipts and other information about your account.
