The information collection, use, and
dissemination practices of The Offer Zone. This policy applies to The Offer
Zone's collection, use, storage and disclosure of information by The Offer Zone
on its (a) websites, including all its divisions, subsidiaries and related
companies (collectively, the "Websites"), (b) on various third party
websites, and (c) to The Offer Zone's other information collection, including
the purchase of customer lists from third parties. The Offer Zone is not
responsible for the information collection or privacy practices of third web
sites or applications.
1. Collection of Information.
1.1 Survey Information. The Offer Zone collects information from individuals by various methods, including, but not limited to, when an individual voluntarily completes a The Offer Zone survey, order form, or a registration page either online or offline, or by means of online or offline surveys, order forms, or registration pages operated by third parties (collectively, a "Survey"). (As used herein, "online" means using the Internet, including the Websites, and related technologies, and "offline" means by methods other than online, including in person, in the postal mail, using telephones and cell phones, and other similar means.) In the Surveys, The Offer Zone or a third party (a "Third Party") may ask an individual to provide various information to The Offer Zone, which may include his or her name, email address, street address, zip code, telephone numbers (including cell phone numbers and carriers), birth date, gender, salary range, education and marital status, occupation, social security number, employment information, personal and online interests, and such other information as may be requested from time to time (together, "Survey Information"). The Offer Zone may also collect information concerning an individual from another source and uses that information in combination with information provided from this web site. Completing the Surveys is completely voluntary, and individuals are under no obligation to provide Survey Information to The Offer Zone or Third Party, but an individual may receive incentives from The Offer Zone or a Third Party in exchange for providing Survey Information to The Offer Zone.
1.2 Third Party List Information. The Offer Zone collects information from individuals when an individual provides information to a third party and The Offer Zone subsequently purchases, licenses, or otherwise acquires the information from the third party (the "Seller"). Such purchased information may include, but is not limited to, an individual's name, email address, street address, zip code, telephone numbers (including cell phone numbers and carriers), birth date, gender, salary range, education and marital status, occupation, industry of employment, personal and online interests, and such other information as the individual may have provided to the Seller (together, "Third Party List Information"). When acquiring Third Party List Information, The Offer Zone seeks assurances from the Seller that the Seller has a right to transfer the Third Party List Information to The Offer Zone and that the Seller has a right to provide offers from advertisers to the individuals whose personal information is included on the Seller's list.
1.3 Other Information. Other occasions when The Offer Zone obtains information from individuals include (1) when an individual is making a claim for a prize or seeking to redeem an incentive offered by The Offer Zone or by a third party, (2) when an individual requests assistance through The Offer Zone's customer service department, and (3) when an individual voluntarily subscribes to a The Offer Zone service or newsletter (together, "Other Information").
1.4 Cookies, Web Beacons, and Other Info Collected Using Technology. The Offer Zone currently uses cookie and web beacon technology to associate certain Internet-related information about an individual with information about the individual in our database. Additionally, The Offer Zone may use other new and evolving sources of information in the future (together, "Technology Information").
(a) Cookies. A cookie is a small amount of data stored on the hard drive of the individual's computer that allows The Offer Zone to identify the individual with his or her corresponding data that resides in The Offer Zone's database. You may read more about cookies at https://cookiecentral.com. Individuals who use the Websites need to accept cookies in order to use all of the features and functionality of the Websites.
(b) Web Beacons. A web beacon is programming code that can be used to display an image on a web page, but can also be used to transfer an individual's unique user identification (often in the form of a cookie) to a database and associate the individual with previously acquired information about an individual in a database. This allows The Offer Zone to track certain web sites an individual visits online. Web beacons are used to determine products or services an individual may be interested in, and to track online behavioral habits for marketing purposes. For example, The Offer Zone might place, with the consent of a third party website, a web beacon on the third party's website where fishing products are sold. When Joe, an individual listed in The Offer Zone's database, visits the fishing website, The Offer Zone receives notice by means of the web beacon that Joe visited the fishing site, and The Offer Zone would then update Joe's profile with the information that Joe is interested in fishing. The Offer Zone may thereafter present offers of fishing related products and services to Joe. In addition to using web beacons on web pages, The Offer Zone also uses web beacons in email messages sent to individuals listed in The Offer Zone's database.
(c) New Technology. The use of technology on the Internet, including cookies and web beacons, is rapidly evolving, as is The Offer Zone's use of new and evolving technology. As a result, The Offer Zone strongly encourages individuals to revisit this policy for any updates regarding its use of technology.
1.5 Outside Information. The Offer Zone may receive information about individuals from third parties or from other sources of information outside of The Offer Zone including information located in public databases ("Outside Information").
1.6 Individual Information. As used herein, Individual Information means Survey Information, Third Party List Information, Other Information, Technology Information, and Outside Information, and any other information The Offer Zone gathers or receives about individuals.
1.7 No Information Collected from Children. The Offer Zone will never knowingly collect any personal information about children under the age of 13. If The Offer Zone obtains actual knowledge that it has collected personal information about a child under the age of 13, that information will be immediately deleted from our database. Because it does not collect such information, The Offer Zone has no such information to use or to disclose to third parties. The Offer Zone has designed this policy in order to comply with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act ("COPPA").
1.8 Credit Card Information. The Offer Zone may in certain cases collect credit card numbers and related information, such as the expiration date of the card ("Credit Card Information") when an individual places an order from The Offer Zone. When the Credit Card Information is submitted, such information is encrypted and is protected with SSL encryption software. The Offer Zone will use the Credit Card Information for purposes of processing and completing the purchase transaction, and the Credit Card Information will be disclosed to third parties only as necessary to complete the purchase transaction.
2. Use of Individual Information.
2.1 Discretion to Use Information. THE COMPANY MAY USE INDIVIDUAL INFORMATION FOR ANY LEGALLY PERMISSIBLE PURPOSE IN COMPANY'S SOLE DISCRETION. The following paragraphs in Section 2 describe how The Offer Zone currently uses Individual Information, but The Offer Zone may change or broaden its use at any time. As noted below, The Offer Zone may update this policy from time to time. The Offer Zone may use Individual Information to provide promotional offers to individuals by means of email advertising, telephone marketing, direct mail marketing, online banner advertising, and package stuffers, among other possible uses.
(a) Content of Email Messages. In certain commercial email messages sent by The Offer Zone, an advertiser's name will appear in the "From:" line but hitting the "Reply" button will cause a reply email to be sent to The Offer Zone. The "Subject:" line of The Offer Zone's email messages will usually contain a line provided from the advertiser to The Offer Zone.
(b) Solicited Email. The Offer Zone only sends email to individuals who have agreed on the Websites to receive email from The Offer Zone or to individuals who have agreed on third party websites to receive email from third parties such as The Offer Zone. The Offer Zone does not send unsolicited email messages. As a result, statutes requiring certain formatting for unsolicited email are not applicable to The Offer Zone's email messages.
2.3 Targeted Advertising. The Offer Zone uses Individual Information to target advertising to an individual. When an individual is using the Internet, The Offer Zone uses Technology Information (see also Section 2.5 below) to associate an individual with that person's Individual Information, and The Offer Zone attempts to show advertising for products and services in which the person has expressed an interest in the Surveys, indicated an interest by means of Technology Information, and otherwise. The Offer Zone may, at its discretion, target advertising by using email, direct mail, telephones, cell phones, and other means of communication to provide promotional offers.
2.4 Direct Mail and Telemarketing. The Offer Zone uses Individual Information to advertise, directly or indirectly, to individuals using direct mail marketing or telemarketing using telephones and cell phones.
2.5 Use of Technology Information. The Offer Zone uses Technology Information (1) to match a person's Survey Information and Third Party List Information to other categories of Individual Information to make and improve profiles of individuals, (2) to track a person's online browsing habits on the Internet, (3) to determine which areas of The Offer Zone's web sites are most frequently visited. This information helps The Offer Zone to better understand the online habits of individuals so that The Offer Zone can target advertising and promotions to them.
2.6 Profiles of Individuals. The Offer Zone uses Individual Information to make a profile of an individual. A profile can be created by combining Survey Information and Third Party List Information with other sources of Individual Information such as information obtained from public databases.
2.7 Storage of Individual Information. The Offer Zone stores the Individual Information in a database on The Offer Zone computers. Our computers have security measures (such as a firewall) in place to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under The Offer Zone's control. Notwithstanding such measures, The Offer Zone cannot guarantee that its security measures will prevent The Offer Zone computers from being illegally accessed, and the Individual Information on them stolen or altered.
3. Dissemination of Individual Information.
3.1 Sale or Transfer to Third Parties. The Offer Zone MAY SELL OR TRANSFER INDIVIDUAL INFORMATION TO THIRD PARTIES FOR ANY PURPOSE IN THE OFFER ZONE’S SOLE DISCRETION.
3.2 Order Fulfillment. The Offer Zone will transfer Individual Information to third parties when necessary to provide a product or service that a person orders from such third party while using The Offer Zone web sites or when responding to offers provided by The Offer Zone.
3.3 Legal Process. The Offer Zone may disclose Individual Information to respond to subpoenas, court orders, and other legal processes.
3.4 Summary Data. The Offer Zone may sell or transfer non-individualized information, such as summary or aggregated anonymous information about all persons or sub-groups of persons.
