In addition, we may use this information to keep you informed of new features and product developments as well as to provide more relevant offers to you.

To contact you

We may use the contact information we receive from you or third parties to contact you via email, direct mail, telephone or other channels such as text messaging, Facebook and Twitter, in each case provided we are permitted by law to send such communications to you and you have not otherwise opted-out of receiving them.

For market research purposes

We use the information we collect to provide clients with anonymous market research reports.

However, your data shall NOT be sold to third-parties for the purposes of marketing to you.

To develop, evaluate, improve and deliver our products and services

We use the information we collect to develop, evaluate, improve and deliver our product and services, and the products and services of Rewards Program Sponsors, Award Providers, Participating Retailers, or others.

We also may engage third party advertising networks to deliver these advertisements. These networks use cookies and similar technologies to personalize the advertising content you see and to measure the effectiveness of the advertisements they deliver. These companies are authorized to use the information we provide and they collect when you navigate to a website within the ad network to provide this service to us.
