I. OVERVIEW

1. Information you choose to provide

We collect personal information that is reasonably necessary for one or more of our functions and activities, and in particular so that we can provide our services to you and our clients.

We may collect, store and use personal information you choose to provide, for example, when you complete a Pop-up, or when you request information or assistance from us online.  The personal information you provide may identify you and your business individually, and may include items such as your name and email address, your physical address, phone number and information regarding your vehicle preferences.  The information you provide is maintained by us or service providers acting on our behalf. 

We will not collect sensitive information from you, including about your race, ethnic origin, political opinions, religious beliefs, or trade union memberships, unless it is reasonably necessary for one or more of our functions or activities and we first obtain your informed consent.

2. Information collected automatically

We may also use server log and web analysis tools to collect and analyze certain other information that does not identify you personally.  This information may include your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, your Internet Service Provider (“ISP”) and your domain name.  An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer by the ISP through which you access the Internet; an ISP is a company that provides access to the Internet; and a domain name is the string of letters, numbers, and hyphens that is used to point to an IP address.  We use this information for system administration, to monitor the use of our Pop-ups, and to track and measure impressions.  While we may report aggregated information to clients, we do not link IP addresses or domain names with any personal information, which means that a visitor’s session will be logged on our servers but the visitor will always remain anonymous (unless you are providing information through a Pop-up).

In addition to server log analysis tools, we may collect information via a number of other technologies, including cookies, web beacons, clear GIFs and other means.  You can remove certain cookies by following the directions in your Internet browser’s “help” file, but if you disable them, your ability to use some online features may be limited.

3. How we use your personal information

We use the personal information you provide via Pop-ups to contact you in relation to the promotional offer referred to in the Pop-up, which may include sending you redemption codes and details for how you can redeem offers, and providing your details to our clients so that you can redeem offers from them.  If you have elected to join our mailing list, we may also use the information you have provided to send you, via email or post, our quarterly newsletter as well as other information impacting online customer relationships that we think you might find useful.  We may also use the information you provide to enforce our terms of use, and to detect and protect against error, fraud and any other unauthorized or illegal activities. We may also use your personal information to contact you in response to any requests, complaints, or comments you may have about us or any Pop-ups.

If you are visiting Pop-ups from a country outside the United States, you acknowledge and agree that in submitting information via Pop-ups, you will transfer personal information about yourself to the United States, that the data protection laws of the United States may not be as comprehensive as those in your own country and that the transfer of this personal information occurs with your consent.  Personal information collected via Pop-ups is stored and processed in the United States, under the laws of the United States.

4. Disclosure of your personal information to others

We do not collect or compile personal information solely for the purpose of distribution to unaffiliated third parties.  Except as described below, we do not share personal information about you with any unaffiliated third parties.

If you send us an email or online request, complaint, or comment relating to one of our affiliates, we may forward your request, complaint, or comment to the appropriate affiliate.

In addition, we may disclose your personal information:

  • to a successor organization in the event that we are involved in a transaction such as a merger, stock purchase or sale, or sale of substantially all of our assets;

  • to our affiliates and to third party partners whom we engage to provide products and services on our behalf, including, but not limited to, support services, website services, and answering user questions about our services;

  • where we are required or authorized by law to do so, for instance to comply with valid legal process such as a search warrant, subpoena, or court order, to protect our rights and property, or to protect the safety or security of the public and our clients.  We will disclose information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it;

  • to our clients and our clients’ third party vendors to support the clients’ products and services and conduct marketing campaigns on their own behalf.
