Personal Information We Collect
While using our website, Features, or Services, you may disclose, or we may automatically acquire information that identifies you individually, depending on how you interact with them. A “personal information” is any information possibly used reasonably to identify, contact, or locate the individual. These include your name, exact location, credit card number, email address and phone number. In general, we gather Personal Information when you supply it to us by visiting our website, utilizing our Features, or using our Services.
Registration for an account, completing surveys or joining our mailing list, communicating with us, entering one of our competitions or contributing testimonials, stories, photographs or the like, or otherwise volunteering or providing information about yourself, are all examples of this type of activity. Our business purposes include
- providing you with our Services,
- improving our website and Features,
- Provide advertising, content, surveys, location-based deals, special offers, promotions, and rewards (collectively “Offers”), and conducting other marketing, administrative, and operational activities.
- Other administrative and operational purposes.
- As a result of our business, we may use the information we collect individually, in aggregate, or in combination with unique identifiers. We may also share the information we collect with our subsidiaries and affiliate services, our vendors, advertisers, merchants, survey partners, joint business venture partners and other trusted service providers (collectively “Trusted Service Providers”).
If you supply us with your phone number to receive a coupon, a link for a mobile app, or other information, that number will not be used or shared with any third party for any other reason. Your Personal Information is required for us to offer you our Services. Without your Personal Information, you will not be able to access our website or its features. Changing the settings on your device or contacting us will allow you to opt out of data gathering (but services and features may lose functionality as a result).
Other User Information We Collect
Additionally, we collect other information when you visit our website and use our features or when we conduct business with our affiliates and Trusted Service Providers, in addition to the information mentioned above. As such, this information may be regarded as personal information in some jurisdictions as far as is reasonably possible and available. We collect this information to provide you with personalized offers and to improve the overall quality of your experience with our website, Features, and Services. Among the information collected is your IP address, device ID (if applicable), as well as your browser and platform type (if applicable).
Our Services do not require you to register to collect this information. We may assign a unique identification number to your activity, registration and link, additional data to that number, such as the date and time you visited, the information you provide, and the links you choose to click. Our website servers collect and store this information in log files. Other than to operate and improve our website, we may collect and analyze this information to learn more about users’ behaviour and trends, measure the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns, those of our affiliates, or those of Trusted Service Providers, and gather demographic information. We may also share this information with third parties, including our Affiliates and our Trusted Service Providers. In addition, we may combine or link the information we collect from or about you offline with information we collect from or about you online through the website and Features, or your use of our Services, to improve our Services.
