Information gathered from visitors searching for massage.

There are two categories of visitors to the site
  • Casual - those visitors that only browse the site searching for and viewing therapist or spa profiles, reading articles, watching videos, and learning about massage, or to buy gift certificates.
  • Members – Visitors that, in addition to being casual visitors, also sign up to be able to make online appointments.

In the case of casual visitors, we do not collect any information other than keeping track of the pages they visited for the purpose of tracking possible errors in the code and improving the website.

In the case of non-listing members we ask for their email, address, and phone. This is required so that once they create an appontment, the therapist can contact them to confirm. Also It is used to determine if they are within the therapist’s outcall area. This information is disclosed only to a therapist for which an appointment was made.
