We may use your contact information to inform you about our services, system updates and changes and other relevant news. We may use systems and tools to enhance your experience with SimplyBook.me.
The system will send emails, SMS/text notifications to your clients about bookings and feedback requests from your company name (as it is indicated in Settings // Basic information). The sender email address is default from SimplyBook.me unless you have set your own SMTP server, then the sender email will be the address that you have set as sender email. The reply-to email address is always the address that is set as the default company email. Remark that the default settings is that all email communication is active unless you select it to be inactive. Text messages/SMS are only sent if you have bought SMS credits and it will be sent according to your setup in Settings // Email and SMS settings. Remark that if you use long text or characters outside Latin alphabet, the text messages may become split up by telecom companies which means that you may be charged more.

Clients should be aware of this fact and choose not to share their booking if they dont want it to appear on their Facebook profile or Twitter.

- — contact information including email address
- — portable telephone numbers
- — demographic information such as postcode, city and country

Each service provider is allocated his own database when he registers with us. In this database we collect:

- — Information concerning the system setup;
- — Client's bookings data (telephone, email, name);
- — Any data that you may request your clients to fill out.
This data belongs only to you and your clients and we do not use this for any purpose.
What we do with the information we gather
We require this information to understand your needs and provide you with a better service, and in particular for the following reasons:
- — Help you (user) to create a booking website or widget to accept appointments from clients.
- — Present relevant data to you and your clients to help you do business together.

During registration, the client gets a common login which enables him/her easy booking at yours and any other provider's services but this data is not available to anyone else unless the client also books an appointment with another user. Only data related to registration information then becomes available for the other user but not any information concerning your client's appointments with you. If a client books a service via Facebook, information related to the appointment may display on his profile depending on his Facebook privacy settings. If a client gives you feedback using Facebook, this may display on the client's Facebook profile.
