Choice and Transparency

SUMMARY: WEach Seats provides means for you to see and control the information that we collect.

1. Device Permissions

Most mobile platforms (iOS, Android, etc.) have defined certain types of device data that apps cannot access without your consent. And these platforms have different permission systems for obtaining your consent. While the WEach Seats app does not currently access your device data, iterations of the app may do so. In that case, the iOS platform will alert you the first time the app wants permission to access certain types of data and will let you consent (or not consent) to that request. Android devices will notify you of the permissions that the WEach Seats app seeks before you first use the app, and your use of the app constitutes your consent.

2. Accessing Your Information

You may request access to your check in and check out information by contacting WEach Seats via the website contact form.
