Privacy Policy


Our privacy policy will help you understand what information we collect at Statea, how Statea uses it, and what choices you have. When we talk about “Statea,” “we,” “our,” or “us” in this policy, we are referring to Statea AB, the company which provides the Service. When we talk about the “Service” or “Broom” in this policy, we are referring to our online booking tool Broom. Our Service is currently available for use via a web browser or applications specific to your mobile device. Information we collect and receive 1. Customer Data Content and information submitted by users to the Service is referred to in this policy as “Customer Data.” As further explained below, Customer Data may be entered by the organization or other third party that set up a venue in Broom (the “User”), or by customers to the User making reservations through Broom (the “Customers”). Where Statea collects or processes Customer Data, it does so on behalf of Customers. Customer data primarily consists of (but may not be limited to) user information entered into Broom by the User, and information and requests submitted by the Customers in connection with making reservations in Broom. Users may also choose to enter information into their profiles, such as first and last name, job, and phone number. If you create a user account, a venue and start using Broom, you are a User, as further described in the User Terms of Service. If you are using the Service by invitation of a User, whether that User is your employer, another organization, or an individual, that User determines its own policies regarding storage, access, modification, deletion, sharing, and retention of Customer Data which may apply to your use of Broom. Please check with the User about the policies and settings it has in place. 2. Other information Statea may also collect and receive the following information: Account creation information. Users provide information such as an e-mail address and password to create an account. Billing and other information.

Cookies are small text files sent by us to your computer and from your computer or mobile device to us each time you visit our website or use our desktop application. They are unique to your account or your browser. Session-based cookies last only while your browser is open and are automatically deleted when you close your browser. Persistent cookies last until you or your browser delete them or until they expire. Some cookies are associated with your account and personal information in order to remember that you are logged in and which venue you are logged into. Other cookies are not tied to your account but are unique and allow us to carry out site analytics and customization, among other similar things.
