We at Metropolitanhub respect your concerns about privacy. This Privacy Notice (“Notice”) applies to personal customer information obtained by the Company, through http://www.metropolitanhub.com (the “Site”).

Each of these properties and services you may choose to visit has privacy notices that differ from this Notice due to the nature of those properties and services. This Notice does not apply to the websites, mobile applications and other services operated by Metropolitanhub affiliates. By using the Site, you agree to the terms and conditions of this Privacy Notice.
The Notice describes the types of personal information we obtain about customers, how we use the information and with whom we share it. We also describe the measures we take to protect the security of the information and how you can contact us about our privacy practices. The Site is for a general audience, is not targeted to children, and we do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13 years of age
