Collection of Information

We collect the following types of information:

Personal Information that You Provide

In general, we collect Personal Information that you submit to us voluntarily through OPTIZMO. We also collect information that you submit in the process of creating or editing your account and user profile on OPTIZMO. For example, our registration and login process requires you to provide us with your name, valid e-mail address and password of your choice. Use of some of our services may require you to save a delivery or billing address. When you personalize your profile and use the features of OPTIZMO, we will collect any information you voluntarily provide, and we may also request optional information to support your use of OPTIZMO, such as your year of birth, gender and other demographic information. We collect information in the form of the content that you submit during your use of OPTIZMO, such as affiliate/publisher contacts; billing contacts, account administrative contacts and other information you choose to submit.

We may also collect information about you and your affiliate partners who use OPTIZMO from any access key or secure login you may have connected from, in order to provide you with a more personalized experience. For instance, we may collect your user name or profile information that you have permitted to be displayed through OPTIZMO in order to display you as a friend or in association with your profile and system logs.

To enable payment for services purchased through OPTIZMO, we collect and store billing and credit card information. For example, when you sign up for an account, you submit your credit card or other payment information so that OPTIZMO can process your payment for the services rendered and any ancillary fees associated with the account that you have authorized.

If you choose to sign up to receive information about products or services that may be of interest to you, RSVP for an OPTIZMO event, or sign up for a newsletter either directly or through an OPTIZMO affiliate, we will collect your e-mail address and other related information. Additionally, we collect any information that you voluntarily enter, including Personal Information, into any postings, comments or forums within the OPTIZMO community.

Personal Information from Other Sources

We may receive Personal Information about you from other sources with which you have registered or interacted, companies who we have partnered with (collectively, ‘Partners’) or other third parties. We may associate this information with the other Personal Information we have collected about you.

E-mail and E-mail Addresses

If you send an e-mail to us, or fill out our ‘Feedback’ form through OPTIZMO, we will collect your e-mail address and the full content of your e-mail, including attached files, and other information you provide. We may use and display your full name and e-mail address when you send an e-mail notification to a friend through OPTIZMO. Additionally, we may use your e-mail address to contact you on behalf of your affiliates or to send notifications from an OPTIZMO messaging system or other website with which you have registered to receive such notifications. We may also use your e-mail address to contact you for things such as notifications of limited time promotions, new product updates, and other related information. You may indicate your preference to stop receiving further promotional communications as further detailed below.

Information Collected Via Technology

As you use OPTIZMO, certain information may be passively collected and stored on our or our service providers’ server logs, including your Internet protocol address, browser type and operating system. We also use Cookies and navigational data like Uniform Resource Locators (‘URLs’) to gather information regarding the date and time of your visit and the solutions and information for which you searched and viewed, or on which of the advertisements displayed on OPTIZMO you clicked. An Internet protocol address, or ‘IP Address,’ is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet. In some cases your IP Address stays the same from browser session to browser session; but if you use a consumer internet access provider, your IP Address probably varies from session to session. ‘Cookies’ are small pieces of information that a website sends to your computer’s hard drive while you are viewing the site. We may use both session Cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent Cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them) to provide you with a more personal and interactive experience with OPTIZMO. Persistent Cookies can be removed by following your Internet browser help file directions. In order to use our services offered through OPTIZMO, your web browser must accept Cookies. If you choose to disable Cookies, some aspects of OPTIZMO may not work properly, and you may not be able to receive our services. You can manage your cookie preferences via your browser settings (see http://www.aboutcookies.org for more information)

Mobile & Location Information

If you use mobile-enabled services provided by OPTIZMO, such as any OPTIZMO mobile application made available by us, we may receive information about your use of our services from your mobile device while you use our applications or services. Certain applications or services may also require addition information collection, such as information to be sent when you are not logged into OPTIZMO for alerts services, and the terms of such collection will be identified when you subscribe to or sign up for such services or applications.

Social Media Information

Certain information you post or provide through OPTIZMO for public posting, such as testimonials, names, and company brands may be shared with other users and posted on publicly available portions of OPTIZMO, including without limitation, social media applications and other public fora in which you choose to participate. Please keep in mind that if you choose to disclose Personal Information when posting comments or other information or content through OPTIZMO, this information may become publicly available and may be collected and used by others, including people outside the OPTIZMO community. Please also be aware that if you choose to share or tweet deals or your purchases, they will become publicly available on the Facebook and Twitter websites. It is up to you to make sure you are comfortable with the information you choose to provide us and the information you choose to publish. We will not have any obligations with respect to any information that you post to parts of OPTIZMO available to others, and recommend that you use caution when giving out personal information to others through social media networks or otherwise, especially when the information provided is of a sensitive or contractual nature.

Feedback Information

If you provide feedback to us, we may use and disclose such feedback for any purpose, provided we do not associate such feedback with your Personal Information. We will collect any information contained in such feedback and will treat the Personal Information in it in accordance with this Privacy Policy. You agree that any such comments and any e-mail we receive becomes our property. We may use feedback for marketing purposes or to add to or modify our services without paying any royalties or other compensation to you.

Use and Disclosure of Information

In general, Personal Information and other information you submit or share with us is used for the following purposes by OPTIZMO: to enable your access to our services; to provide, maintain, protect, develop and improve OPTIZMO; to fulfill your requests for products and services; to customize the content you receive from us and our trusted partners; and to offer you additional information, opportunities, promotions and functionality from us or on our behalf, or from our partners at your request.

Except as otherwise stated in this Privacy Policy, we do not sell, trade, rent or otherwise share for marketing purposes the Personal Information that we collect with third parties, unless you ask or authorize us to do so.

We may provide your Personal Information to third-party service providers or affiliates who work on behalf of or with us to provide some of the services and features of OPTIZMO and to help us communicate with you. Examples of such services include sending e-mail, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, processing payments (including credit card payments) and providing customer service. We limit information provided to the aforementioned affiliate and third party service providers to the extent necessary for them to provide the services and require such service providers to promise not to use such information except as necessary to provide the relevant services to us or directly to you through an OPTIZMO product or service. If you do not want us to use or disclose Personal Information collected about you in the manner identified in this Privacy Policy, you may not use OPTIZMO. Certain products or services may expressly require you to submit information for fulfillment at the point of purchase, and Affiliates may separately request information from you as necessary to interact with you via an OPTIZMO product or service, or for their own purposes. An affiliates collection and use of any information shall be governed by that affiliates own privacy policy. Additionally, we do share your content and account preferences and other information with any affiliates or partners you have connected with OPTIZMO, along with those companies and persons you have asked us to share your information with.

We may share some or all of your Personal Information with OPTIZMO affiliated and group companies that are under a common control, so that they may send e-mails to you, in which case we will require them to honor this Privacy Policy.

We may also develop non-personal information concerning OPTIZMO users, using de-identification processes to help ensure that such information cannot reasonably be re-associated or connected with you as an individual. Generally, we aggregate this information and use it in statistical analysis to help us analyze patterns in the use of OPTIZMO. This Privacy Policy does not limit our use or disclosure of de-identified information (i.e., that is not connected with you as a user) in any way, and we reserve the right to use and disclose such information to our partners, advertisers and other third parties in our discretion.

In the event we go through a business transition such as a merger, acquisition by another company or sale of all or a portion of our assets, your Personal Information may be among the assets transferred. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur and are permitted by this Privacy Policy, and that any acquirer of ours or that acquirer’s assets may continue to process your Personal Information as set forth in this Privacy Policy.

We may disclose your Personal Information if we believe in good faith that such disclosure is necessary to (a) comply with relevant laws or to respond to subpoenas or warrants served on us; or (b) to protect and defend our rights or property, you, or third parties. You hereby consent to us sharing your Personal Information under the circumstances described herein.

Your Choices Regarding Your Personal Information

We offer you choices regarding the collection, use and sharing of your Personal Information. You have a right at any time to stop us from contacting you for marketing purposes. When you receive promotional communications from us, you may indicate a preference to stop receiving further promotional communications from us and you will have the opportunity to ‘opt-out’ by following the unsubscribe instructions provided in the promotional e-mail you receive or by contacting us directly at privacy@optizmo.net.

Despite your indicated e-mail marketing preferences, we may send you administrative e-mails regarding OPTIZMO, including, for example, administrative and transactional confirmations, alert notifications, and notices of updates to our Privacy Policy if we choose to provide such notices to you in this manner.

Additionally, if you use other social media services in connection with OPTIZMO, the providers of these services may provide you with additional choices concerning the types of data shared with OPTIZMO.

OPTIZMO respects enhanced user privacy controls. We support the development and implementation of a standard “do not track” browser feature, which is being designed to provide customers with control over the collection and use of information by third parties regarding their web-browsing activities. At this time OPTIZMO™ does not respond to DNT mechanisms. Once a standardized “do not track” feature is released, OPTIZMO intends to adhere to the browser settings accordingly. Except as otherwise described in this statement, personal information you provide on the Site will not be shared outside of OPTIZMO without your permission. To the extent we are legally permitted to do so, we will take reasonable steps to notify you in the event that we are required to provide your personal information to third parties as part of legal process.

OPTIZMO may contain links to other websites or may make third-party applications available to our users. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such other websites or applications. We encourage our users to read the privacy statements of each and every website they visit or application they use. This Privacy Policy applies solely to information collected by us through OPTIZMO and does not apply to these third-party websites or applications. The ability to access information of third parties from OPTIZMO, or links to other websites or locations, is for your convenience and does not signify our endorsement of such third parties, their products, their services, other websites, locations or their content.

We use a variety of industry-standard security technologies and procedures to help protect your Personal Information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. Even though we have taken significant steps to protect your Personal Information, no company, including us, can fully eliminate security risks associated with Personal Information.

Children’s Personal Information

OPTIZMO does not direct its websites to children under the age of thirteen. We market business-related products or services for purchase by businesses and/or the adults representing a specific business function. Protecting the privacy of children is very important. If we obtain actual knowledge that a registered user is under eighteen, we will promptly delete information associated with such account. By using OPTIZMO, you are representing that you are at least eighteen years old.
