The term “Personal Data” refers to any information relating to an identifiable person who can be directly or indirectly identified in particular by reference to an identifier.

Therefore, Inthechair does not guarantee any confidentiality or privacy with respect to any of your personal information or User Submissions. Inthechair does not assume any liability to third parties whose information you include on the Site, or which you post in any User Submissions. Please keep your username and password secure.

Importing Google Contacts

Inthechair enables users to import their existing Google contacts to their Inthechair accounts to create customer contacts. This import feature is powered by Google OAuth and Inthechair, which requests the owner of the Inthechair account to authorize the transfer of contact information and does not attempt to access your Google password. Inthechair doesn’t use the contact information obtained during the import process for other purpose, or push it to external 3rd party apps without your consent.

Children’s Information

Information You Provide Voluntarily

Signup Information. When you sign up for the Inthechair platform, you will be asked to provide your name, email address, phone number, physical or mailing address, business name, and industry type, as well as information related to your business service offerings, working hours, and staff members.

Customer or Staff Information. With your consent, you may import staff or customer contact information to Inthechair for the purposes of scheduling appointments, events, or classes with staff or customers. This information includes the staff or customer’s name, phone number, email address, physical or mailing address, and an image of their likeness. For example, with your consent, you may link your Inthechair account with your Google Contacts account, or other similar service, which allows Inthechair to obtain personal information from that account. This import feature is powered by Google OAuth and Inthechair, which requests the Inthechair account owner to authorize the transfer of contact information and does not attempt to access your Google password. Inthechair does not use the contact information obtained during the import process for any other purpose, and does not share contact information with third parties without your consent.

Staff Profiles. A Inthechair account holder may create one or more additional staff profiles with his or her colleagues, or members of their organization. Those colleagues or members may voluntarily give us certain information. This can include their names, email addresses, phone numbers, and short descriptions of personal or professional characteristics intended to inform the Inthechair user’s customers or clientele. If you receive an invitation from a Inthechair account holder but do not wish to become a Inthechair user, please contact the account holder who sent the invitation to discuss other means of managing your appointment calendar.

External Calendars. A Inthechair user may also connect their external or third-party calendar with Inthechair, if they have a Inthechair Premium subscription. Our 2-way calendar sync integration will check the duration and free/busy status of the events in your external calendar, as well as the titles of any events. We do not check who you’re meeting with, their email, or any other details about events in your calendar.

Billing Information. If you purchase a paid subscription to Inthechair Premium or Inthechair Live Booking, our third-party payment processors will collect and store your billing address and credit card information.

Technical Support. If you call, email, or otherwise contact Inthechair for technical support, you may provide personal information such as your name, email address, or phone number to Inthechair.

Third Party Integrations within Inthechair

Inthechair integrates with a number of third-party apps and software platforms to allow for greater functionality and expanded services offerings. Some examples of these integrations include MailChimp and Infusionsoft, for which the Inthechair user must maintain their own MailChimp or Infusionsoft account, respectively. If you use these integrations within Inthechair, you should be aware of the separate privacy policies for those services and platforms. It is also important to obtain your customers’ consent before passing or transmitting their personal information from Inthechair to a third party app.

When handling requests from your customers to remove personal data from your systems, you may be obligated to remove personal data from any third party platforms that you have activated an integration with in your Inthechair account. Inthechair cannot, for example, delete personal information held by MailChimp as part of your usage of a MailChimp account. However, Inthechair will practice due diligence in supporting any requests to delete personal information from a third party app, service, or platform, insofar as Inthechair can assist in helping the Inthechair user communicate those requests to third party apps, services, and platforms directly.
