Privacy Policy
Last updated on April 22, 2014

Welcome to FreebeeCards! Please review this Privacy Policy carefully.

When you create a FreebeeCards Account or provide us other information, including the information that can be used to identify, locate, or contact you, the information allows us to improve the nature and quality of the Services we provide to you and our other users. The purpose of this Privacy Policy is to communicate to you how we will use and protect the information you provide to us.

We believe in privacy and do not sell our mailing list or share our information with large-scale tracking networks. The information we collect about you is either information you directly give us, or information we learn through your use of our software and services, and we are cautious regarding when, why, and with whom we share that information.

This Privacy Policy explains:

You agree, by accessing our Site and using our Software or Services, to the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy, which is incorporated into and forms a part of the FreebeeCards Terms and Conditions published at www.freebeecards.com/app/terms.html.

FreebeeCards is headquartered in Lone Tree, Colorado but please note that your information may be stored and processed on servers throughout the United States and Canada. Your information will not be used or disclosed in violation of applicable law.

Please contact us with any questions or comments you may have about this Privacy Policy. We can be reached by email at privacy@freebeecards.com or by postal service at: FreebeeCards, Attn: Privacy Department, 9233 Park Meadows Drive, Suite 14, Lone Tree, CO 80124.

Definitions

FreebeeCards is sometimes also referred to herein as “we,” “us,” or “our.” The terms “you” and “your” refer to the person accessing or using the Site or our Services, or the company or organization on whose behalf that person accesses the Site or our Services. Capitalized terms defined in the FreebeeCards Terms and Conditions and not otherwise defined in this Privacy Policy shall have the same meaning ascribed to such term in the FreebeeCards Terms and Conditions. Within the scope of this document, a “Merchant” refers to a business entity offering products or services for sale and offering discounts or rewards through our Service, and which may encompass one or more physical stores, depending on that Merchant's legal or business structure.

Users under the Age of Thirteen

FreebeeCards is not intended for use by people under the age of thirteen, and we do not purposely collect information from such users. If we become aware that you are under the age of thirteen, we will terminate your FreebeeCards account and permanently delete your information from our databases and servers.

Information Collected by FreebeeCards

We collect information in two primary ways:



Device and location information. We may collect information relating to any device you use to access the Site or Services (each a “Device” and collectively the “Devices”). Information we may collect about your Devices includes the model, the hardware installed, the operating system version, internet connectivity and mobile network information, and other unique identifiers of your Devices. If your Device is location-enabled, we may acquire and process information about your actual location that will allow us to tailor our Services to your location and geography-specific needs.

Usage information. We automatically collect and store certain information when you use our services, either in our databases or in server logs. This information includes:

Application installation. When you install or upgrade the Software, or when you use the Software in conjunction with other software installed on your Devices, we may learn which versions of our software or other software you use.

Device storage. We may store information on your Devices using mechanisms such as browser cookies or application storage.

Cookies, web beacons, and anonymous identifiers. We use various techniques to amass information when you visit the Site, including sending cookies or other identifiers to your Devices.

Cookies can be either temporary or persistent. Persistent cookies are small bits of information we send to your Devices that store information about your account and preferences when using our Services—they remain on your Device until you delete them. Temporary cookies operate in the same manner, but they are typically deleted by your Device automatically when you exit your session.

Web beacons are small and/or transparent images included on website pages or in emails that allow us to determine whether you perform certain tasks or actions. Web beacons are a tool for us to gauge the effectiveness of our communications with you.

In addition, we may utilize cookies and anonymous identifiers when you interact with us through our advertisements or FreebeeCards features that may appear on other websites. In the event cookies or anonymous identifiers are connected to your Account, this Privacy Policy will govern the use of such information. In the event we present third party advertisements on the Site and/or mobile Devices that use cookies or anonymous identifiers, the third party advertiser’s privacy policy, not our Privacy Policy, governs use of the associated information.

Information from Third Party Sources. We may receive information about you and your use of our Services from other websites, from companies that are affiliates of ours, or other third parties. Such information may be associated with your Account.

Profile Information and Content. If you create a profile or post Content to the Site, such information will be available to, and may be used by, anyone accessing the Site. Accordingly, we recommend that you use caution when creating a profile or posting Content to the Site.

Electronic Communications. If you email us or send us other electronic communications, we may collect and store your email address or mobile phone number, the content of your message, the attached files, or any other transmitted information. We may use your name and email address when we send emails or other electronic communications to other users at your request, including when you assign a reserved virtual promotional card to another user or invite a non-user to join FreebeeCards through our referral service. If you opt-in to receiving such communications, we may also allow other FreebeeCards users to contact you through the Site. Unless you opt-out of receiving such communications, we may also contact you electronically with relevant information about our Services, including upcoming improvements or changes.

How Collected Information is Used

The information we collect from you and your use our Services allows us to continually improve the Services, develop new Services, and, ultimately, tailor our Services to best suit your needs and the needs of other FreebeeCards users. In addition, the information and ideas you submit in your communications with us allows us the ability to solve problems that you and other FreebeeCards users might be experiencing.

We use information collected from cookies, anonymous identifiers, and other technologies to improve your FreebeeCards experience and the overall quality of our Services. For instance, by saving your language preferences, we are able to ensure that the Site content appears in your preferred language. Please note that we will not implement cookies, anonymous identifiers, and other technologies in an effort to specifically identify sensitive categories of information, like race, religion, or sexual orientation.

Our services distinguish between personally identifiable information, anonymized information, and aggregated information. Personally identifiable information is information which can be used to identify you specifically, whether by name, email address, or any other identifier. The fact that johnsmith@example.com visited Joe's Crab Shack and redeemed a $10 FreebeeCard would be personally identifiable information and subject to the highest level of protection. Anonymized information is specific information, but with personal identifiers removed. The fact that someone visited Joe's Crab Shack and redeemed a $10 FreebeeCard, but not specifically who it was, would be anonymized information. We consider your birthdate, but not your age, to be personally identifiable information. Anonymized information is subject to a medium level of protection. Finally, aggregated information consists of statistical or demographic information about a large number of users. For example, if 30% of the visitors to Joe's Crab Shack were men between the ages of 18 and 35, this would be aggregated information. Aggregated information has a reduced level of protection.

We will seek your consent prior to using information for a purpose other than those set forth in this Privacy Policy.

Your Choices

We think you receive a more personalized FreebeeCards when we know information about you and the kinds of promotions you desire. However, you can limit the information you provide to us, and you can limit the communications that we send to you.

Accessing and updating your information

We aim to provide you with continuing access to the information you submit to us. If such information is incomplete or inaccurate, we make an effort to ensure you have the ability to update it, unless we have a legitimate business or legal justification to disallow such update or to retain such information. Please note that, even if you terminate your Account, we may keep records of your Account as we deem appropriate for legitimate business or legal purposes.

When you attempt to update your Account information, we may ask that you verify your identity before fulfilling your request. Most of your information can be changed or updated through an area of the Site. Alternatively, you can contact us at support@freebeecards.com to make modifications or requests with respect to your Account. Please note that we reserve the right to refuse or reject any such requests that we deem unreasonable, unnecessary, or impractical.

In light of our efforts to protect your information from inadvertent or malicious destruction, subsequent to your deletion of information from your Account or Profile, we may not immediately delete remaining copies from our servers and may not remove information from our backup systems. We may preserve and use information given to us as we deem necessary to comply with applicable law, enforce our agreements, and resolve any disputes that may arise.

Information we share

We will not disclose your personally identifiable information to third parties except to:

In addition to the ways in which personally identifiable information may be shared or disclosed, we may disclose anonymized information to:

We may publicly disclose aggregated information about our users and our Services. Such information will demonstrate trends regarding the general use of our Services.

Any personal information or statistical information that we disclose to third parties as set forth in this section is governed by their respective privacy policies, not this Privacy Policy.

We strive to diligently safeguard our business information and the personal information of our users from any unauthorized access, disclosure, or destruction. In this regard, we implement the following measures:

In the event we receive formal written complaints regarding the transfer of personal information, we will contact the complaining party directly to attempt to resolve the complaint. If we are unable to resolve the complaint with the complaining party directly, we will work with the appropriate regulatory authorities to resolve such complaint.
