RAINSTORM CAR WASH
From time to time, we may want to contact you with information about announcements and Platform updates. You may opt out of such communications at any time by clicking the “unsubscribe” link found within Rainstorm’s emails and changing your contact preferences. If you have an account on our Platform you may continue to receive transactional messages related to our services, even if you unsubscribe from promotional emails.
For EEA users: We only send marketing communications to users located in the EEA with your prior consent. Please see the section “For EEA users” below.
Users of the Platform Generally
“Non-Personally-Identifying Information” is information that, without the aid of additional information, cannot be directly associated with a specific person. “Personally-Identifying Information,” by contrast, is information such as a name or email address that, without more, can be directly associated with a specific person. Like most Platform operators, Rainstorm gathers from users of the Platform Non-Personally-Identifying Information of the sort that web browsers, depending on their settings, may make available. That information includes the user’s Internet Protocol (IP) address, operating system, browser type and the locations of the Platforms the user views right before arriving at, while navigating and immediately after leaving the Platform, as more fully described herein. Although such information is not Personally-Identifying Information, it may be possible for Rainstorm to determine from an IP address a user’s Internet service provider and the geographic location of the visitor’s point of connectivity as well as other statistical usage data. Rainstorm may analyze Non-Personally-Identifying Information gathered from users of the Platform to help Rainstorm better understand how the Platform is being used. By identifying patterns and trends in usage, Rainstorm is able to better design the Platform to improve users’ experiences, both in terms of content and ease of use.
We also collect User Content. “User Content” is defined as all text, documents, or other content or information, including Reviews, uploaded, entered, or otherwise transmitted by you to us in connection with your use of the Platform.
Automatically Collected Information
Certain data about the devices you use to connect with our Platform and your use of the Platform are automatically logged in our systems, including:
Mobile Device Information. If you use a mobile device to access the Platform, we may collect device information (such as your mobile device ID, model and manufacturer), operating system, version information and IP address.
Log data. As with most Platforms and technology services delivered over the internet, our servers automatically collect data when you access or use our Platform and record it in log files. This log data may include the IP address, browser type and settings, the date and time of use, information about browser configuration, language preferences, and cookie data.
Usage information. This is information about the Platform and how you use it. We may also obtain data from our third-party partners and service providers to analyze how users use our Platform. For example, we will know how many users access a specific page on the Platform and which links they clicked on. We use this aggregated information to better understand and optimize the Site.
Device information. These are data from your computer or mobile device, such as the type of hardware and software you are using (for example, your operating system and browser type), as well as unique device identifiers for devices that are using our software.
Web Cookies. Data obtained from cookies are described below.
Web Cookies are small text files stored on your device and used by web browsers to deliver personalized content and remember logins and account settings. Rainstorm may use Web Cookies and similar technologies, including tracking pixels and web beacons, to collect usage and analytic data that helps us provide our Platform to you, as well as to help deliver ads for relevant products and services to you when you visit certain pages on the Platform and then visit certain third-party sites. For more information on cookies, please contact us.
PLATFORM USERS WHO DO NOT WISH TO HAVE WEB COOKIES PLACED ON THEIR COMPUTERS SHOULD SET THEIR BROWSERS TO REFUSE WEB COOKIES BEFORE ACCESSING THE PLATFORM, IF APPLICABLE, WITH THE UNDERSTANDING THAT CERTAIN FEATURES OF THE PLATFORM MAY NOT FUNCTION PROPERLY WITHOUT THE AID OF WEB COOKIES. PLATFORM USERS WHO REFUSE WEB COOKIES ASSUME ALL RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY RESULTING LOSS OF FUNCTIONALITY.
A “Web Beacon” is an object that is embedded in a web page or email that is usually invisible to the user and allows Platform operators to check whether a user has viewed a particular web page or an email. Rainstorm may use Web Beacons on the Platform and in emails to count users who have visited particular pages, viewed emails and to deliver co-branded services. Web Beacons are not used to access users’ Personally-Identifying Information. They are a technique that Rainstorm may use to compile aggregated statistics about Platform usage. Web Beacons collect only a limited set of information, including a number, time and date of a page or email view and a description of the page or email on which the Web Beacon resides. You may not decline Web Beacons. However, they can be rendered ineffective by declining all Web Cookies or modifying your browser setting to notify you each time a Web Cookie is tendered, permitting you to accept or decline Web Cookies on an individual basis.
Aggregated and Non-Personally-Identifying Information
We may share aggregated and Non-Personally Identifying Information we collect under any of the above circumstances. We may also share it with third parties and our affiliate companies to develop and deliver targeted advertising on the Platform and on Platforms of third parties. We may combine Non-Personally Identifying Information we collect with additional Non-Personally Identifying Information collected from other sources. We also may share aggregated information with third parties, purpose of conducting general business analysis. This information does not contain any Personally-Identifying Information and may be used to develop Platform content and services that we hope you and other users will find of interest and to target content and advertising.
Additional Terms for Mobile Device Users
Unless we have received your prior consent, we do not access or track any location-based information from your mobile device at any time while using the Platform, except that it may be possible for Rainstorm to determine from an IP address the geographic location of your point of connectivity, in which case we may gather and use such general location data.
We may use hyperlinks on the Platform which will redirect you to a social network if you click on the respective link. However, when you click on a social plug-in, such as Facebook’s “Like” button, Twitter’s “tweet” button or the Google+, that particular social network’s plugin will be activated and your browser will directly connect to that provider’s servers. If you do not use these buttons, none of your data will be sent to the respective social network’s plugin provider. So for example, when you click on the Facebook’s “Like” button on the Platform, Facebook will receive your IP address, the browser version and screen resolution, and the operating system of the device you have used to access the Platform. Settings regarding privacy protection can be found on the Platforms or Platforms of these social networks and are not within our control.
As defined above, Personally-Identifying Information is information that can be directly associated with a specific person. Rainstorm may collect a range of Personally-Identifying Information from and about Platform users. Much of the Personally-Identifying Information collected by Rainstorm about users is information provided by users themselves when communicating with us or signing up to receive newsletters. That information may include each user’s name, address, email address and telephone number, and, if you transact business with us, financial information such as your payment method (valid credit card number, type, expiration date or other financial information). We also may request demographic or other relevant information as determined by Rainstorm from time to time. Users of the Platform are under no obligation to provide Rainstorm with Personally-Identifying Information of any kind, with the caveat that a user’s refusal to do so may prevent the user from using certain Platform features. BY USING THE PLATFORM, YOU CONSENT TO THE USE AND DISCLOSURE OF YOUR PERSONALLY-IDENTIFYING INFORMATION AS DESCRIBED IN THIS “COLLECTION, USE AND DISCLOSURE OF PERSONALLY-IDENTIFYING INFORMATION” SECTION.
We may occasionally use your name and email address to send you notifications regarding services offered by Rainstorm that we think you may find valuable. We may also send you service-related announcements from time to time through the general operation of the Platform. Generally, you may opt out of such emails at the time of registration or through your account settings, if available, though we reserve the right to send you notices about your account, such as service announcements and administrative messages, even if you opt out of all voluntary email notifications.
The Communications that you receive, as further defined in our User Terms, may include links to third-party websites, such as EZ Texting and Mailchimp. Except where we post, link to, or expressly adopt or refer to these User Terms, these User Terms do not apply to, and we are not responsible for, any personal information practices of EZ Texting, Mailchimp, or any such third-party website and online service. To learn more about the personal information practices of EZ Texting and Mailchimp, please see their respective privacy notices.

Right to Opt Out of “Sale”.
Rainstorm does not sell information as the term “sell” is traditionally understood.

For example, we may disclose information to advertising partners, advertising technology companies, and companies that perform advertising-related services in order to provide you with more relevant advertising tailored to your interests. This information may include identifiers such as your IP address, advertising identifiers, commercial information, your internet or other electronic network information such as your interaction with an ad, geolocation data and inferences. To the extent Rainstorm sells your personal information as the term “sell” is defined under the CCPA, you have the right to opt-out of the sale of your personal information by us to third parties at any time.

If we are unable to verify your identity, we may deny your requests to know or delete.
If you choose to exercise any of these rights, you will not receive different prices or quality of services unless permitted by applicable law, including if those difference are reasonable related to your information. For example, we may from time to time provide special surprise rewards to Fast Pass Account holders who sign up online or via our mobile application. Any special rewards we offer will reasonably relate to your personal information’s value.
Please note that if you opt out of receiving marketing communications from us, we may still send communications to you about your transactions, any accounts you have with us, and any contests, competitions, prize draws or sweepstakes you have entered. Opting out of one form of communication does not mean you’ve opted out of other forms as well. For example, if you opt out of receiving marketing emails, you may still receive marketing text messages if you’ve opted in to receiving them.
If you wish to exercise any of the rights set above, please contact us at email@example.com or at the address below. We will need you to provide specific information to help us confirm your identity. This is a security measure to help ensure that your personal information is not disclosed to someone that does not have the right to receive it.
