We employ that data to deliver the functionality of the Service, satisfy your requests, enhance the Service’s quality, conduct research and analysis pertaining to the Service, personalize your experience, keep tabs on how the Service is used, and give feedback to third parties that are listed on the Service. We also use that data to display relevant advertising, promote the Service, offer customer support, send you messages, back up our systems, enable disaster recovery, and increase the security. Even if we do not save such information, it still has to be sent to our servers and kept there for a long enough time to be processed.

Information about your account: When you create a Bali Life account, we save and utilize the information you input, including your first and last name, email address, zip code, physical address, and any other details you may choose to include, including your gender, phone number, or birth date. As part of your account profile, we reserve the right to publicly display your first name, last initial, and any image or other information you provide when creating an account. To further customize your user experience, we also collect and utilize any choices you provide, such as food and activity preferences. Through your account settings, you may later change some of the information you enter for your account. You may report an account and ask for its deletion if you think someone else has used your personal information to create it.
Public Content: Your contributions to the Service, including your images, ratings, reviews, tips, lists, Collections, compliments, Ask the Community posts, Bali Life Talk posts, and modifications to business page information, are meant for public consumption and are thus available by the public. In addition, some of your other activity through the Service, such as how you vote on other people’s contributions (e.g., useful, funny, cool, helpful, or not helpful), which contributions you like, where you check-in (including when friends on Bali Life tag you in), and how you enter your first name, last initial, city, neighborhood, the month and year you created your Bali Life account, is intended for public consumption. Through your account settings, you may restrict which of these actions are visible.
Contacts: You may invite people to join Bali Life or become your friends by giving us their contact information, granting us access to their contacts on your computer, mobile device, or other third-party websites, or by manually selecting the people you wish to welcome. If you give us permission to access your contacts, we will send data about them to our servers so they can handle your invites.
You consent to receiving communications from other users, companies, and Bali Life when you register for an account or utilize certain services. Your account settings allow you to modify some of your communications selections, but you cannot choose not to receive all administrative, transactional, or legal messages from Bali Life. We may contact you about your transaction using the contact information you give, such as by automated SMS text messages to your phone number, if you book a reservation, buy food, add yourself to a waitlist, or seek a quotation from a company using the Service. Additionally, we may keep track of the responses you provide to communications you receive from us or via the Service, including whether you deleted, opened, or forwarded such messages, and we may share that data with other recipients of your messages (for example, to let them know if you have viewed their message). The status of a user’s requests, such as whether a business has responded to the request, the type of response given (such as a quote or a request for more information), and whether the user has responded to any business’s response, may be disclosed to those businesses when a user requests a quote or similar information from multiple businesses through the Service. We may retain any communications you exchange with other users of the Service in order to process and deliver them, provide you control over them, and evaluate and disclose them as part of any investigations into how the Service is being used as well as our attempts to make it better. Messages that we deem objectionable—such as spam, dishonest solicitations, or attempts to trade reviews in return for money—may not be sent by us. We may record phone numbers, phone providers, and the date and time that the messages were processed if you send or receive communications by SMS text message using the Service. Receivers of messages may be charged by their carriers. Additionally, we could keep records of the data you provide us in person, over the phone, in writing, by email, and in other electronic means. We may contact you, including by phone or email, if you are a representative of a business listed on Bali Life or use a phone number now or in the past linked with such a company, using the contact details you provide us, make publicly accessible, or that we have on file for your business. For quality control reasons, our contacts with you, including phone conversations, may be monitored and recorded.
Transactions: If you make a reservation or purchase using the Service, we will gather and store the information you give us about the transaction, including your name, phone number, address, email, and payment information, in order to process the transaction, communicate with you about it, and make it easier for you to make future transactions. For the same objectives, we may share this information with other parties, and third parties may share it with us. Credit card details and other sensitive payment information are encrypted using industry-standard technology when you submit them. In conjunction with evaluations you post about companies you do business with through the Service, we may disclose to the public that you did business with such companies. We may publicly disclose the information that you made your reservation via the Service, for instance, if you make a dinner reservation through the Service and then post a review about your experience.

CHANGES TO THIS PRIVATE INFORMATION POLICY
YOUR CALIFORNIA PRIVACY RIGHTS, CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS
Residents of California have particular rights regarding Bali Life’s acquisition, use, and disclosure of their personal information under the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (the “CCPA”).
In accordance with the law, Bali Life does not and will not sell your personal information without first giving you notice and a chance to opt out. Similar to that, we don’t provide rewards for the acquisition, use, or disclosure of your personal data.
When you use the Service, Bali Life may collect a variety of kinds of personal information about you, including identifiers, commercial information, information about your use of electronic networks or devices, geolocation data, and professional information. In Section 1 above, we give a more thorough explanation of the data Bali Life gathers and how we utilize it (Information We Collect and How We Use It). The categories of third parties with whom we disclose personal information are described in Section 3 (Third Parties), along with the types of information that may be shared in various situations.
You have the right to ask to know what personal information has been gathered on you and to access it if you live in California. The CCPA gives Bali Life the right to keep and use certain personal information notwithstanding your request to have it deleted. You also have the right to request that your personal information be deleted. Through Bali Life’s Support Center, you may find out more information on how to make a request for data rights. Additionally, you may contact dataprotection@Balilife.com with your request. We won’t treat you differently just because you’re exercising your CCPA rights. You may allow an agent to submit a request on your behalf, but you must be sure they have the proper authority.
In addition to the CCPA, California’s Shine the Light statute gives people of that state the ability to inquire about the personal information that businesses share with third parties for their direct marketing needs. Unless you specifically request it, we will not provide your personal information to third parties for the sole purpose of directly selling their products or services to you. Contact us at the number provided in Section 8 if you have any queries about this policy or want to modify your choices.
NV RESIDENTS: YOUR RIGHTS TO PRIVACY
Nevada legislation (SB 220) mandates that website owners provide their visitors the opportunity to choose not to have some of the data they may have collected about them sold. In accordance with Nevada law, Bali Life does not currently sell your personal information to third parties and will not do so in the future without first giving you notice and a chance to opt out, as required by the law. Please use the Support Center to get in touch with us if you have any queries about our data privacy policies or how we adhere to Nevada’s data privacy laws.
