This notice describes how Panobooking and its affiliates collect and use personal data. This notice applies to all users of our apps, websites, features, or other services anywhere in the world, unless covered by a separate privacy notice.
Panobooking.com collects and uses the information you provide us. When you make a request or reservation with us, you are (at a minimum) asked for your name and email address.
Depending on the nature of the reservation, we may also ask for your home address, telephone number, payment information, date of birth, location (in the case of on-demand services), the names of the people traveling with you, and any preferences you might have for your trip or service (such as dietary, accessibility, or medical requirements in case you are booking ambulance services). In some cases, you may also be able to check-in online with Providers (the Providers who can be booked through Panobooking.com) on our site, for which we will ask you to share passport information or a driver’s license and signatures.
If you need to get in touch with our customer service team, contact your Provider through us, or reach out to us in a different way (such as social media or via a chatbot); we’ll collect information from you there, too. This applies whether you are contacting us with feedback or asking for help using our services.
You might also be invited to write reviews to help inform others about the experiences you had on your service be it a trip, a hotel or ambulance service. When you write a review on the Panobooking.com platform, we’ll collect any info you’ve included, along with your display name and avatar (if you choose one).
There are other instances where you’ll provide us with information as well. For example, if you’re browsing with your mobile device, you can decide to allow Panobooking.com to see your current location or grant us access to some contact details. This helps us to give you the best possible service and experience by, for example, showing you our city guides, suggesting the nearest restaurants, hotels, taxis, ambulances or attractions to your location, or making other recommendations.
If you create a user account, we’ll also store your personal settings, uploaded photos, and reviews of previous bookings. This saved data can be used to help you plan and manage future Trip Reservations or benefit from other features only available to account holders, such as incentives or other benefits.
We may or may not offer you referral programs or sweepstakes. Participating in these will involve providing us with relevant personal data.
Personal data you give us about others.
Of course, you might not just be making a reservation for yourself. You might be seeking to book a service offered by one of our providers with other people or making a reservation on someone else’s behalf. In both those scenarios, you will provide their details as part of the booking/reservation.
If you have a Panobooking.com account, you may choose to keep an address book on Panobooking.com to make it easier to plan and manage business travel arrangements for others.
In some cases, you might use Panobooking.com to share information with others. This can take the form of sharing a wish list, taking part in a travel community or participating in a referral program, as described when you use the relevant feature.
At this point, we have to make it clear that it’s your responsibility to ensure that the person or people you have provided personal data about are aware that you’ve done so, and that they have understood and accepted how Panobooking.com uses their information (as described in this Privacy Statement).
Personal data we collect automatically.
Whether or not you end up making a booking, when you visit our websites or apps, we automatically collect certain info. This includes your IP address, the date and time you accessed our services, the hardware, software, or internet browser you used, and info about your computer’s operating system like application versions and your language settings. We also collect information about clicks and which pages were shown to you.
If you’re using a mobile device, we collect data that identifies the device, as well as data about your device-specific settings and characteristics, app crashes, and other system activity. When you make a booking using this kind of device, our system registers how you made your reservation (on which website), and/or which site you came from when you entered the Panobooking.com website or app.
Personal data we receive from other sources.
It’s not just the things you tell us, though—we may also receive information about you from other sources. These include business partners, such as affiliate partners, the Providers whose services you book through our site, and other independent third parties.
Anything we receive from these partners may be combined with information provided by you. For example, Panobooking.com booking services may not only be made available via Panobooking.com and the Panobooking.com apps, but may also be integrated into services of affiliate partners you can find online. When you use any of these services, you provide the reservation details to our business partners who then forward your details to us.
We also integrate with third party service providers to facilitate payments between you and Providers. These service providers share payment information, so we can administer and handle your bookings, making sure everything goes as smoothly as possible for you.
We also collect info when we receive a complaint about you from a Trip Provider (e.g., in the case of misconduct).
Another way we might receive data about you is through the communication services integrated into our platforms. These communication services offer you a way to contact the Provider you’ve booked with to discuss your stay. In some cases, we receive metadata about these communication activities (such as who you are, where you called from, and the date and length of the call).
We may also receive information about you in order to show you more relevant ads, such as the additional cookie data Panobooking.com social media partners make available to us.
When you link your Panobooking.com user account to your social media account, you might trigger exchanges of data between Panobooking.com and that social media provider. You can always choose not to share that data.
Providers you book through our site or app may share info about you with Panobooking.com, too. This could happen if you have support questions about a pending bookings/reservations, or if disputes or other issues arise about a reservation/booking.
Panobooking mainly being a mediation services provider collects User data which may be shared with Panobooking providers to improve processing of Users’ bookings and any other customer service. Such data may also be used both for marketing research purposes and customer relation management, it being specified that some of those providers may not be located within Uganda.
