Information Collection and Use
Upon interacting with the Services, you will have the option to register for an account and become a user of the Services. To register for an account, we will ask you to provide us with some personally identifiable information – information about you that can be used to contact or identify you, like your name and email address. When you use the Services, we will also collect information about the transactions you complete via the Services. We use your email address and transaction history mainly to develop, offer and deliver our Services, to respond to your inquiries, to fulfill legal and regulatory requirements, to conduct market research, project planning, troubleshooting, detecting and protecting against errors, fraud or other criminal activity, and to enforce our Terms of Service. We also use such information to contact you with RewardsPay newsletters, marketing or promotional materials and other information that may be of interest to you. The email address you provide to RewardsPay will be associated with all your RewardsPay transactions whether using your Rewards or any other form of payment offered through the Service. When your account is accessed using your email address all of your transactions whether transacted using your Rewards or any other form of payment offered through the Service will be visible in your account transaction history. You can request at any time to no longer receive such communications by contacting us. If you choose not to create an account, you will still be able to use the Services, but please note that you will not be able to use all of the features and benefits of the Services.
We may collect non-personally identifiable information, that is information that cannot identify a particular person such as a zip code or city or state of residence, without an association to a name or address, as well as information transmitted during routine internet communications, a user's Internet Service Provider, and a computer's operating system. We collect non-personally identifiable information and provide aggregated, non-personally identifiable information about RewardsPay Users (defined below) to third parties for audit, marketing research and other purposes. Since aggregated data is not associated with any particular person, these third parties will not have access to any personally identifiable information about you.
When you use the Services, whether as you have registered for an account or are a non-registered user just browsing (any of these, a RewardsPay User), our servers automatically record information that your browser sends whenever you visit a website (Log Data). This Log Data may include information such as your computer’s Internet Protocol (IP) address, browser type or the webpage you were visiting before you used our Services, pages of our Services that you visit, the time spent on those pages, information you search for via our Services, access times and dates, and other statistics. We use this information to monitor and analyze use of the Services and for the Services’ technical administration, to increase our Services’ functionality and user-friendliness, and to better tailor our Services to our visitors’ needs. We also use this information to verify that RewardsPay Users meet the criteria required to process their requests.
Invite a Friend
One of the features of our Services allows RewardsPay Users to invite friends via an email invitation to use the Services. RewardsPay also enables RewardsPay Users to import data from their contact lists from various email accounts that the RewardsPay User may have (such as Gmail, Windows Live, AOL, etc.). RewardsPay will not use the information submitted by the RewardsPay User for any purpose other than sending a one-time invitation to the friend as per the RewardsPay User's request.
