COLLECTION OF INFORMATION

Information You Provide to Us

When you open an account or register for the Services, we ask you to provide your email address, vehicle information (for those seeking to rent a parking space), and payment information (processed by a third-party payment processor). We also collect information when you participate in any interactive features of the Services (like rent or list for rent a parking space), fill out a form, participate in a contest or promotion, make a purchase, apply for a job, communicate with us via third party social media sites, request customer support, or otherwise communicate with us. For example, we may collect your name, email address, phone number, and the nature of your question if you reach out to our customer service team. We may also collect information about your parking space when you list it for rent in order to best direct potential renters to it.
