This policy applies to information that we collect when you use Rail. This policy also applies to additional information that we collect if you choose to provide us with your email address or mobile phone number. However, this policy does not describe the practices of third parties, such as restaurants or online reservation services, that may collect information from you when you interact with them through their websites. We encourage you to ask them about their privacy practices before providing any information to them.
We may change this policy from time to time. If we make changes, we will (a) post the updated policy on the www.tablesafe.com website and (b) revise the “Last Updated” date above. In addition, if you have provided us with an email address or mobile phone number, we will attempt to send you an email and/or text message that notifies you of a link to a page that describes the changes. You should review this policy from time to time to stay informed about our information practices and about ways you can help to protect your privacy.
Rail is a product that allows you to pay your restaurant bill by self-swiping your credit or debit card at your table. Rail also allows you to split bills, calculate tips, and have receipts emailed or texted to you in lieu of paper receipts. Relative to standard restaurant industry practice, Rail provides a high degree of fraud protection because (a) Rail does not store credit and debit card primary account numbers, (b) Rail uses point-to-point encryption for all cardholder data, and (c) neither the restaurant nor TableSafe has the capability to decrypt any credit or debit card data.
We Collect Information You Provide to Us
We will collect the information that you provide to us. Typically, the personally identifiable information that you will provide to us will be your email address or your mobile phone number, which we must have to satisfy your request that we deliver your restaurant receipt by email or text message. However, we also may collect additional information that you provide to us if you participate in a promotion or contest offered by us or our partners, respond to surveys, or otherwise communicate with us. This information may include your name, physical address, phone number, and birth date and other historical, contact, and demographic information.
When you self-swipe your credit or debit card through Rail, we do not collect or store any primary account numbers associated with the card.
We Collect Information from Your Use of Rail
We will collect non-personally identifiable information whenever you use Rail. This information will include, without limitation, the following:
precise information about when, where, and at what time the transaction occurred;
a detailed description of the transaction (including, without limitation, a description of each food and beverage item that you purchased); and
a detailed description of the payment amounts, such as amounts payable for food, beverages, tip, and taxes.
This information will be associated with personally identifiable information that we have about you by virtue of your request to receive your restaurant receipt by email or text message.
Promotions, Advertisements, and Analytics

In addition, we use information about you to provide technical notices, security alerts, and support and administrative messages.
We also use information about you to improve and personalize Rail and our other products and services. For example, when you use Rail to pay your restaurant bill and request that we deliver your restaurant receipt by email, the next time you use Rail, your email address automatically will appear after you swipe your credit or debit card, even though we do not store your primary account numbers or any other number capable of processing a credit or debit card transaction.

We may disclose or sell aggregated, non-personally identifiable information to third parties, including, without limitation, aggregated information regarding the details of your restaurant transactions.

Aggregated information will not disclose you as the source or subject of the information.
We take reasonable security measures, including administrative, technical, and physical safeguards, to help protect personal information from loss, theft, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction.
