The world's first take me out app that helps you discover, build, and share your infinite wish list of things to do and places to go.
With Weotta you can say goodbye to the days of reading about that amazing concert the day after, forgetting the name of that new restaurant your
friend recommended a second ago, or returning from a family vacation to realize there was a local attraction that your kids would have loved just
around the corner from your hotel. Welcome to your new concert calendar, your new museum guide, your must-see-movie list, even your new tour book when you're traveling.
Right out of the box, Weotta's signature interface dishes out hundreds of ideas of things to do based on when you have time, where you're going to be, and who else wants to go.
Ideas like upcoming events this month, places your friends have been, and movies opening this weekend are all included in your stack.
Weotta filters the right ideas for you, no
matter who you need to be: a parent, a friend, a date, even a business partner. From the smallest gigs in Brooklyn to the biggest draws in Hollywood, Weotta gets you out to a good time
when you have time in over 400 U.S. cities nationwide.
More than just a pretty (inter)face, Weotta is a unique local search engine and machine learning technology that weaves together hundreds of streams, tens of millions of data points,
and your networks' interests in local events and places-- transforming, classifying, and synthesizing all the information needed to answer the key-decision-making questions: is the venue
kid-friendly or is it good for a date? Are there tickets or tables available? Are any of my friends interested or would they go back?
When you need the next step, Weotta also orchestrates
the everyday services you use to facilitate your social lives: Eventbrite, Facebook, Fandango, OpenTable, StubHub, and TicketFly to give you the full-service experience that your modern lifestyle demands.
We're hiring. If you're an amazing data scientist, engineer, or journalist who is as passionate about local data as we are, we want to meet you.

- Python programming
- machine learning

How your Privacy is Protected
Weotta takes reasonable steps to protect your personal information, such as requiring a password at login. However, no Internet, email or other electronic transmission is ever fully secure or error free, so you should take special care in deciding what information you send to us. You, the user, are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your login information to help prevent others from accessing your personally identifiable information.
Information You Provide to Us
We receive Personal Information directly from users who are interested in obtaining access to "logged in" user portions of the Sites, mobile applications or various products and services from us or from third parties. We collect Personal Information when you register, access, or visit the Service, including when you participate in activities in the Service.
We receive and store any information you enter on our Service or provide to us in any other way. The types of Personal Information collected may include your name, user name, email address, and location information. The Personal Information you provide is used for such purposes as allowing you to interact with other users, improving the Service, customizing the advertising and content you see, and communicating with you about specials and new features. We may also use this Personal Information in order to adapt the Services to your needs, to research the effectiveness of our network, and to develop new tools for you and the community as a whole.
Information Collected Through Passive Means
We collect information passively using technology to make our Service more interesting and useful. For instance, when you open our iPhone app, your location can be collected to serve you nearby content. We may also use passively collected information to help diagnose problems with our servers, and to administer the Service.
Weotta may store such information itself or such information may be included in databases owned and maintained by Weotta's affiliates, agents or service providers. Weotta may use such information and pool it with other information to track, for example, the total number of visitors to our app, and how our users use and interact with the Weotta service. Also, in an ongoing effort to better understand and serve the users of the Services, Weotta often conducts research on its customer demographics, interests and behavior based on the Personal Information and other information provided to us. This research may be compiled and analyzed on an aggregate basis. Weotta may share this non-identifiable and aggregate data with its affiliates, agents and business partners, but this type of non-identifiable and aggregate information does not identify you personally. Weotta may also disclose aggregated user statistics in order to describe our services to current and prospective business partners, and to other third parties for other lawful purposes.
To provide the Services, we may derive location information from your wireless carrier, certain third-party service providers, or directly from the mobile device that you are using. When you use the Services, our servers automatically record certain information about your usage. These server logs may include information such as a mobile device identification number and device identifier, web requests, browser type, device type, browser language, referring / exit pages and URLs, platform type, number of clicks, domain names, search terms, landing pages, pages viewed and the order of those pages, features used in the Services, the amount of time spent on particular screens, and the dates and times of your requests.
Use of Personally Identifiable Information
We may use your personally identifiable information in many ways, including helping improve your experience on the Service, troubleshooting, and sharing your information with third parties so that these third parties can provide services to you. Examples of such functions include mailing information, maintaining databases and processing payments. When we employ another company to perform a function of this nature, we only provide them with the information that they need to perform their specific function. We may also supplement personally identifiable information that we have collected directly from our users with other information that we obtain from third party partners. In addition, we may share your information when you participate in certain activities on our Sites that are sponsored or operated by third parties.
Integrating Third Party Services within the Services:
Weotta allows you to enable various online third party services, such as social media and social networking services like Facebook to be directly integrated into your Weotta experience. By directly integrating these services, we make your online experiences richer, and more personalized. To take advantage of this feature, we will ask you to provide us your username and password for the relevant Third Party Services. By enabling such Third Party Services, you are allowing us to pass your log-in information and send and receive other information (such as geo-location and friend lists) to and from these service providers. When you add a Third Party Service account to the Service, we will collect your login information and other relevant information necessary to enable the Service to access that Third Party Service and your data contained within that Third Party Service. However, please remember that the manner in which Third Party Services use, store and disclose your information is governed solely by the policies of such third parties, and Weotta shall have no liability or responsibility for the privacy practices or other actions of any Third Party Service that may be enabled within the Service.
Purchase or Sale of Businesses
From time to time we may purchase a business or one or more of our businesses may be sold, and your personally identifiable information may be transferred as a part of the purchase or sale.
