INFORMATION WE COLLECT
We may collect the following types of information:
Information You Provide to Us
General Information. We receive and store information you knowingly provide to us. For example, when you register for some of our products, we ask for Personal Information such as your email and password. We may combine the information you submit from the Services or third parties in order to provide you with a better experience and to improve the quality of the Services. We may collect other Personal Information you provide to us through your use of the Services, including without limitation, if you respond to a survey, otherwise interact with the services or if you contact Customer Support. You can choose not to provide us with certain information, but then you may not be able to take advantage of many of our product and features offered on or through the Services.
Location Information. We may make offers available to you that ask you for, access, or track geolocation-based information from your computer or other device while downloading or using our application(s) or using our Services. If we make these offers available to you, and you consent to enable such services, we may receive information about your actual location (such as GPS signals of latitude and longitude sent by your mobile device) or information that can be used to approximate a location (such as mobile country code, network code being used to access the Service, IP Address or cellular ID). You may disable your mobile location data in your mobile device settings. We collect this location-based information to improve and personalize our Services for you, including geographically relevant features, products, offers, applications, and application recommendations.
- Information Acquired from Other Sources. We may acquire anonymous data from third party sources, including through Apps that use our Services. This data cannot be used to identify specific individuals and may be used for a variety of purposes, including to update existing User profiles, to provide our aggregate information such as statistics regarding usage, trends and financial information. We do not share, rent or sell any of the data acquired from third party sources, and we require these third party sources to be privacy-compliant in their use of personal information.
- Support. If you notify us of a problem with our Services or submit a suggestion, complaint, question, request or any other email correspondence, we may ask for your email address or other Personal Information so that you may receive a response to your request, and so that we can monitor your request to improve our Services. This information will be used to notify you of receipt of your submission and of a resolution to the inquiry. We may employ a third party service provider in order to manage support requests or conduct performance surveys on our behalf, for the purposes of improving the quality of our Services. That third party will be prohibited from using your Personal Information for any other purpose.
Information Collected Automatically
Generally, the Services automatically collects usage information, such as the numbers and frequency of visitors to our Services, similar to TV ratings that indicate how many people watched a particular show. We only uses this data in aggregate form and not in a manner that would identify you personally. This type of aggregate data enables us to measure the number of Users access parts of the Services so that we can make the Services appealing to as many Users as possible, and improve the Services. As part of this use of information, we may provide aggregate information to our customers about how Users collectively use the Services. We share this type of statistical data so that our customers also understand how people use the Services, so that they, too, may provide you with an optimal online experience. Again, we will never disclose aggregate information to a customer in a manner that would identify you personally.
- Log Data. When you access the Services via a browser, application or other client our servers automatically receive and record certain information about how a person uses the Services, including both registered users and non-registered users (either, a “User”). This information is typically collected through the use of server log files or web log files, application programming interfaces (APIs), software development kits (SDKs), and tracking technologies like browser cookies (collectively, “Log Data”) to analyze certain types of technical and usage information. Log Data may include such information as a your web request, your unique mobile Device ID, Internet Protocol (IP) address, device model, browser type, browser language, operating system, date and time of your request, the application you used when accessing the Service, the pages or features of our Service to which you navigated and the time spent on those pages or features, links on our Services that you clicked, one or more cookies that may uniquely identify your browser or account and other statistics related to your usage of the Services. In addition, we automatically receive and record which rewards you have registered and/or redeemed through the Service, which rewards you have gifted to your friends, which in-app events and achievements you have completed, your location when using the service, and other reward-related or app-related actions you may take in connection with the Services. Some of this automatically collected information may or may not be Personal Information, depending on whether it is personally identifiable in nature or not.

- Clear Gifs. We may employ and/or our third party advertising partners may employ a software tracking technology called “Clear Gifs” (aka “Pixel Tags” or “Web Beacons”) that help us better manage Content on the Services by informing us what Content is effective. Clear GIFs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online activity of users of the Services. Unlike cookies, which are stored on a user’s web browser or computer hard drive, Clear GIFs are embedded invisibly on web pages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. We may combine the information gathered by clear gifs to your Personal Information.
