Contacting Us. If you contact us with a comment, question or complaint, you may be asked for information that identifies you (such as your name, address and a phone number) along with additional information we need to help us promptly answer your question or respond to your comment or complaint. We may retain this information to assist you in the future and to improve our customer service and Services.
Surveys and Promotions. From time-to-time we may request information from you and other users via surveys or contests, sweepstakes or other promotions (any, a “Promotion”). Participation in these surveys or Promotions is completely voluntary so you and other users have a choice whether or not to disclose this information. The requested information typically includes contact information (such as name and address), and optional demographic information (such as zip code). Contact information and other information will be used to administer your participation in the contest, sweepstakes or promotion, to help us better understand our users, to notify the winners and award prizes and file winners information as required by law. Survey information will be used for the purpose(s) of the survey, including the monitoring or improvement of the use and satisfaction of Savings.com Applications.
In addition to any Personal Information or other information that you choose to submit to us, we and our third-party service providers may use a variety of technologies that automatically (or passively) collect certain information whenever you visit or interact with the Savings.com Applications, including without limitation, the URL that referred you to the Savings.com Applications (“Affiliate Referral Urls”) or other marketing or distribution sources, all of the areas within the Savings.com Applications that you visit, when you view, purchase, or redeem coupons or accept offers accessed through our Services, and how you otherwise use our Services and which offers are of interest to you (“Usage Information”). We may use the this Usage Information for a variety of purposes, including to enhance or otherwise improve the Savings.com Applications. In addition, we collect your IP address or other unique identifier (“Device Identifier”) for your computer or other device used to access the Savings.com Applications (any, a “Device”). A Device Identifier is a number that is automatically assigned to the Device used to access the Savings.com Applications, and our computers identify your Device by its Device Identifier. Usage Information may be non-identifying or may be associated with you. Whenever Usage Information, Location information, or a Device Identifier is personally identifiable, we will treat it as Personal Information.
A few of the tracking technologies that may be used to collect Usage Information include, without limitation, the following:
Web Beacons. Small graphic images or other web programming code called web beacons (also known as “1×1 GIFs” or “clear GIFs”) may be included in our web pages and messages. Web beacons may be invisible to you, but any electronic image or other web programming code inserted into a web page or e-mail can act as a web beacon. Web beacons or similar technologies may be used for a number of purposes, including, without limitation, to count visitors to our Savings.com Applications, to monitor how users navigate the Savings.com Applications, to count how many e-mails that were sent were actually opened or to count how many particular articles or links were actually viewed.
Web Logs. Like most standard website servers, we log Device Identifiers and the operating system of your computer and may track your movement and redemption within the Savings.com Applications, the pages from which you were referred, access times and browser types in order to improve security, analyze trends and administer the Savings.com Applications. We use this information in the aggregate to gauge the effectiveness, usage, and popularity of our Savings.com Applications, track information for statistical purposes, help diagnose and troubleshoot server malfunctions, analyze trends, track user movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information and track traffic and sales to our partner merchants.
We may acquire information from other trusted sources to update or supplement the information you provided or we collected automatically, such as demographic information. We use this information to help us maintain the accuracy of the information we collect, to target our communications so that we can inform you of products, services and offers that may be of interest, and for internal business analysis or other business purposes.
Service Providers. We may use affiliates or third party service providers to help us operate our business and the Savings.com Applications or administer activities on our behalf (for example, to host our website or analyze data and our advertising effectiveness). We may share your information with these service providers so that they can provide these services on our behalf. Our service providers are given the information they need to perform their designated functions, and we do not authorize them to use or disclose personal information for their own marketing or other purposes.
Sweepstakes, Contests and Promotions. We may offer sweepstakes, contests, and other promotions (any, a “Promotion”) through the Savings.com Applications that may require registration. By participating in a Promotion, you are agreeing to official rules that govern that Promotion. If you choose to enter a Promotion, Personal Information may be disclosed to third parties or the public in connection with the administration of such Promotion and as required by law or permitted by the Promotion’s official rules. If a Promotion is jointly sponsored by us and one or more third-party sponsors, your personal information may be shared with such sponsors, as specified at the time of collection of your personal information. We do not control the use, disclosure or security of your personal information by other sponsors, and recommend you review their respective privacy notices or statements.
Legal Matters; Safety. We (or our affiliates or service providers) may, without your consent, access and disclose your information, any communications sent or received by you, and any other information that we may have about you as may be permitted or required by applicable Canada, US or other law (including, but not limited to, court order or subpoena), or to prevent or investigate suspected fraud, violations of our Terms of Service or activity that appears to us to be illegal or may expose us to legal liability.. We, our affiliates and our Canadian, US and other service providers may provide your personal information in response to a search warrant or other legally valid inquiry or order, or to an investigative body in the case of a breach of an agreement or contravention of law, or as otherwise required or permitted by applicable Canadian, US or other law. We may also disclose personal information where necessary for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims and to investigate or prevent actual or suspect loss or harm to persons or property.

Note that despite any request for removal of or change to personally identifiable information, we may need to retain certain information in accordance with our record retention policy and there may also be residual information that will remain within our databases and other records, which will not be removed or changed.
Security. We maintain reasonable administrative, technical and physical safeguards in an effort to protect personal information in our custody and control against unauthorized access, use, modification and disclosure. Please keep in mind that no data transmission over the Internet, wireless transmission or electronic storage of information can be guaranteed to be 100% secure and therefore we cannot ensure the security of any information you transmit to us, and your use of the Site indicates that you are willing to assume this risk.
