Privacy & Terms
Updated July 12, 2012
1. Information Collected
We collect two types of information from you: i) information that you voluntarily provide to us (e.g. through a voluntary registration process, sign-ups or emails); and ii) information that is derived through automated tracking mechanisms.
Voluntary Registration Information.
In order to purchase goods and services from this Site, you must first complete the registration process, during which we will collect personal information about you. The information will include your name, email address(es), address, preferred language of communication, telephone number, gender and birth date. We may also collect information relating to your marital status, preferences, topics of interest or other information which we believe will allow us to provide you with a more tailored service. We do not collect personally identifiable information about you except as disclosed by you on a voluntary basis.
Voluntary Information for Services and Features
We also collect personally identifiable information when you choose to use certain other features or programs of the Site, including: i) viewing deals or making purchases, ii) consenting to receive email or text messages from us, including but not limited to upcoming promotions, advertising, contests, news or events, iii) participating in our forums, iv) sharing our finds, v) becoming a business partner or licensing your technology to us, including but not limited to our merchant arrangements, affiliate program or vi) advertising on our Site. When you choose to use these additional features, we require you to provide your "Contact Information" in addition to other personal information that may be required to complete a transaction or other business relationship such as your phone number, billing and shipping addresses and credit card information. Credit card and billing information is recorded via a Secure Socket Layer connection (SSL) and is fully encrypted. Occasionally, we may also request information such as your shopping preferences and demographics which will help us better serve you and our others users in the future.
This Site uses "cookies" and other tracking technologies. Cookies enable us to serve secure pages to our users without asking them to sign in repeatedly. Most browsers allow you to control cookies, including whether or not to accept them and how to remove them. If a user's system is idle for a defined time, the cookie will expire, forcing the user to sign in again to continue their session. This prevents unauthorised access to the user's information while they are away from their computer.
You may set most browsers to notify you if you receive a cookie, or you may choose to block cookies with your browser, but please note that if you choose to erase or block your cookies, you will need to re-enter your original user ID and password to gain access to certain parts of the Site.
Third-Party Cookies: In the course of serving advertisements to this site, our third-party advertisers may place or recognise a unique "cookie" on your browser.
You may choose to invite friends to view or join the Site by sending invitations via our invite and share features through email and other social media platforms. This Site stores the email addresses you provide so that the respondents may be added to your social network, confirm orders/purchases and also to send reminders of the invitations. This Site does not sell these email addresses or use them to send any other communication besides invitations and invitation reminders. Recipients of invitations may contact this Site to request removal of their information from our database.

We may permit certain trusted third parties to track usage, analyse data such as the source address that a page request is coming from, your IP address or domain name, the date and time of the page request, the referring web site (if any) and other parameters in the URL.

4. How We Protect Information
We are committed to protecting the information we receive from you. We take appropriate security measures to protect your information against unauthorised access to or unauthorised alteration, disclosure or destruction of data.

As mentioned above, credit card and billing information is recorded via a Secure Socket Layer connection (SSL) and is fully encrypted. While no computer system is completely secure, we believe the measures we have implemented reduce the likelihood of security problems to a level appropriate to the type of data involved.
5. Third Party Advertising
If advertisements appear on this Site, they may be delivered to you by the Site or one of our advertising partners. Our advertising partners may set cookies. Doing this allows the advertising partners to recognise your computer each time they send you an advertisement.
