ATTENTION:  PLEASE READ THIS PRIVACY POLICY CAREFULLY.  THIS PRIVACY POLICY PERTAINS TO YOUR ACCESSING AND USING THE ROQA.COM APP AND RELATED SERVICES.

Roqa is providing: (a) consumers who download the “Roqa App” and agree to use it in accordance with Roqa’s conditions and restrictions, the ability to receive discounts on their meal purchased from member restaurants; and (b) our member restaurants who download the Roqa App and agree to use it in accordance with Roqa’s conditions and restrictions, the ability to attract more consumers by enabling those member restaurants to discount consumer’s meals (collectively the “Service”).  The Service is operated by Roqa, Inc., which operates out of its principal place of business located at 300 Avalon Dr., Wood-Ridge, NJ (“Roqa” or “we”). This Privacy Policy describes the information collected through your use of the Service, how that information is used and shared we use it, how we protect it, and the choices you can make about your information.

AND YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT THIS PRIVACY POLICY HAS THE SAME FORCE AND EFFECT AS A SIGNED AGREEMENT. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THESE TERMS, DO NOT USE THE SERVICE.

Unless explicitly stated otherwise, any new features that augment or enhance the current Service shall be subject to this Privacy Policy.

This Privacy Policy is part of Roqa’s Terms of Use. Any terms defined in the Terms of Use shall have the same meaning in this Privacy Policy.

Please review the Privacy Policy each time you use the Service. We will notify you of material changes to this Privacy Policy by putting a banner on the website, saying that the Privacy Policy has been changed with an effective date. BY USING THE SERVICE, YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THE MOST RECENT VERSION OF THE PRIVACY POLICY.

2.  Information We Collect

When you contact Roqa through your use of the App, or via other electronic means, we collect the information you provide, including your first and last name, mailing address, email address, telephone number, location and any other information you provide to us.

Other information that may be collected is described in the Local Storage and Other Tracking Technologies section below.

We may combine all of the information we collect from or about you and use it in the manner described in this Privacy Policy.

3.  How We Use Your Information

We use and store your information that we collect for several purposes, including:

  • The purposes for which you provided it;
  • To provide our Service to you (including charges, receipts, tracking credits and reimbursements, providing notifications, and system notifications);
  • To market customer rewards to you;

As explained elsewhere in this Privacy Policy, personal information we collect may be processed by our partners in providing related services to the Service (such as providing you your credits and reimbursements, administration services, technical services relating to the maintenance, servicing, and upgrading of the products, software, hosting services, data migration services and analytical services, among others).

We do not sell or rent our mailing list, and we will not disclose your email address to any third party for marketing purposes, unless you specifically authorize a third party to access your information. Roqa will disclose your personal information to third parties only in the following limited circumstances:

  1. When you use the Service at a member restaurant, we may disclose your partial name (first name and last initial, but not your email address) and the transaction details (location, amount) to the associated Merchant to aid in the processing of the Service.
  2. We may allow our Contractors who are performing marketing services, delivering goods, administering promotions, analyzing data and usage of the Service, operating the Service or providing support and maintenance services for the Service, or providing customer service, to access personal information. We require Contractors to use the personal information they access only in connection with the services they perform for Roqa, and never for any marketing or other purposes. Roqa Contractors will always be required to maintain the confidentiality of your personal information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.
  3. We will permit access to your personal information by a member restaurant or third-party that you specifically authorize to access your information, by granting a party’s express request for permissions in the Roqa App. You can revoke access permissions granted to any member restaurant or other third-party at any time by logging in to the Roqa App;

4.  How Information is Disclosed

Information may be disclosed to third parties in accordance with our Privacy Policy. Please note that a user may choose not to share certain information as described in the Your Choices Regarding Your Information below.

     A.  Business Changes. 

If Roqa becomes involved in a merger, acquisition, sale of assets, joint venture, securities offering, bankruptcy, reorganization, liquidation, dissolution, or other transaction or if the ownership of all or substantially all of our business otherwise changes, we may transfer your information to a third party or parties in connection therewith.

     B.  Affiliates. 

We may also share your information with our affiliates for purposes consistent with this Privacy Policy. Our affiliates will be required to maintain that information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

     C.  Investigations and Law.  

We may disclose information about you to third parties if we believe that such disclosure is necessary to:

  • Investigate, prevent, or take action regarding suspected illegal activities, suspected fraud, the rights, reputation, safety, and property of us, users or others, or violations of our policies or other agreements with us;
  • Comply with the law or guidance and cooperate with government or law enforcement officials or private parties;
  • Respond to claims and legal process (for example subpoenas); and/or
  • Protect against legal liability.

     D.  Aggregated Information. 

We may share aggregated information relating to users of the Service with our affiliated partners as well as with unaffiliated third parties. The aggregated information provided to our affiliate partners will contain personal information about any user. The aggregated information provided to unaffiliated third parties does not contain personal information about any user.

5.  Local Storage, and Other Tracking Technologies

Roqa will collect or receive information about your use of the Service, and will do so through direct monitoring of your use of the Service, as well as through the use of client-specific IDs and/or device-specific IDs, embedded scripts, statistical IDs and/or digital fingerprinting as new tracking solutions emerge, and this information may be collected over time and combined with information collected from other sources, which may be used for providing you credits and reimbursements, as well as for remarketing and may track users across websites and apps and over time. You can instruct your browser to stop allowing such tracking, but if you do, you will not be able to use all portions of all functionality of the Service.

We use such tracking technologies on the Service to help us not only enhance your use of the Service (e.g., to confirm you are dining at a member restaurant) but to also understand and save your preferences and interests so we can personalize your future visits and compile aggregate data about customers’ use of the Roqa App so that we can offer better user experiences and tools in the future.

6.  Security

Roqa implements a variety of security measures to protect the safety of your personal information when you enter or submit your personal information.

While we take reasonable measures to protect the information you submit via the Service against loss, theft and unauthorized use, disclosure, or modification, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. No Internet, email, or mobile application transmission is ever fully secure or error free.  Email or other messages sent through the Service may not be secure. You should use caution whenever submitting information through the Service and take special care in deciding which information you provide us.

We cannot guarantee that the storage or transmissions of your personal information will be fully secure and that third parties will never be able to defeat our security measures or the security measures of our partners. WE ASSUME NO LIABILITY FOR DISCLOSURE OF YOUR INFORMATION DUE TO TRANSMISSION ERRORS, MALICIOUS THIRD-PARTY ACCESS OR CAUSES BEYOND OUR CONTROL.

7.  Data Retention

We will retain your information for as long as you use the Service and for a reasonable time thereafter. Please note that some or all of the information we have collected from you or about you may be required in order for the Service to function properly.

8.  Your Choices Regarding Information 

You have choices regarding the use of information by the Service.

     A.  Opting Out Changing Your Information.  

Currently, we collect and retain only as much data about each user as is needed for your use of the Service. If a user wishes to change their information, that user will need to access their user profile and make modifications as necessary. For example, if you would like your personal information permanently removed from our database, please contact us at support@roqa.com. We will promptly disable your Roqa user account and you will no longer receive emails from Roqa. Your removal from the mailing list and/or database will not remove records of past transactions or delete information stored in our data backups and archives, as required by law. Data on past transactions and data stored in backups and archives will be deleted in the normal course of Roqa’s business. You may elect to opt-out at any time after registering for the Roqa service. We will make appropriate updates to our applicable policies as necessary.

9.  How We Respond to Do Not Track Signals

As discussed herein, Roqa does collect personally identifiable information (“PII”) through its Service, including through its use of session management software. Our session management software is active while you are on the Service and is erased once you end your session on the Roqa App. Roqa does not use the session management software to collect information about you from other websites. Nonetheless, your phone may offer a “Do Not Track” option, which allows you to signal to operators of mobile applications and services (including behavioral advertising services) that you do not wish such operators to track certain of your online activities over time and/or across different websites and mobile applications and services. The Service does not support Do Not Track requests at this time, which means that we collect information about your online activity only while you are using the Service and do not retain it.

10.  Children

We do not knowingly collect personal information from an individual under age 13. If you are under the age of 13, please do not submit any personal information through the Service. If you have reason to believe that we may have accidentally received personal information from an individual under age 13, please contact us immediately at support@roqaapp.com.

11.  Terms and Conditions

Please also visit the Roqa’s Terms of Use, which states the terms, disclaimers, and limitations of liability governing your use of the Service.

12.  Changes to the Privacy Policy

We reserve the right to update or modify this Privacy Policy at any time and from time to time.  Please review this Privacy Policy periodically, and especially before you provide any information.  This Privacy Policy was made effective on the date indicated above. Please check the Service to ensure that you are reviewing the most recent Privacy Policy.

13.  How to Contact Us
