ScoutIt, Inc. (InfoScout’s parent company) recognizes that you should have the right to know how the data we collect is used and what controls you have over that data once shared with us.
We may receive information about your purchases from Participating Retailers.
We will maintain records to keep track of the Awards you earn.
When you visit a ScoutIt, Inc. website or click on a banner advertisement, we may send one or more cookies to your computer or other device. You can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, some ScoutIt, Inc. website features or services may not function properly without cookies.
We may receive information about you from various sources. This may include estimated demographic information from data collection companies and others in order for us to offer anonymous market research reports to clients and partners.
We may link Nonpersonal Information about you with any Personal Information we have.
We use the information we collect to manage your Account(s). For example, we use the information you provide us and the purchase information we collect to track, process, post and fulfill Awards you earn and to provide customer service. 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.
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 example, we may, on behalf of or at the request of, the Rewards Program Sponsor(s) for the Rewards Program(s) you participate in, use your contact information to send you emails about our products or services and/or the product and services of Rewards Program Sponsors, Award Providers, Participating Retailers, or others. We may also use your contact information to provide you administrative communications from time to time.
We use the information we collect to provide clients with anonymous market research reports. For example, “What percentage of Females in the Midwest buy Brand X products?” We may also partner with third-party market research companies who may leverage the data to support the creation of their own anonymous market research reports based on proprietary data they collect via other sources. However, your data shall NOT be sold to third-parties for the purposes of marketing to you.
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. For example, if we learn from the information we collect that certain brands or categories of products are highly valuable to Registered Users, we may offer more services or Awards for those products.
We may use the information we collect to comply with federal, state, or other applicable laws and regulations.
We also may use the information we collect to the extent we believe it is necessary or appropriate to enforce or apply our rights under our agreements with Registered Users, and/or to protect the rights, property or safety of ScoutIt, Inc., our Registered Users and others.
We work closely with our Rewards Program Sponsors. If you participate in a Rewards Program, we may provide the Rewards Program Sponsor for that Rewards Program any Personal Information we receive about you including, without limitation, your name, mailing address, email address, phone number, username, Account activity, including information about the Award offers you activated and redeemed. Rewards Program Sponsors are third party companies independent of ScoutIt, Inc. that may use the information we provide them to evaluate, develop, offer and promote their products and services to you and others.
We may promote or offer contests, sweepstakes, similar promotional offers or surveys that may be co-sponsored by ScoutIt, Inc. and one or more other companies, or may be sponsored by companies other than ScoutIt, Inc.. Some or all of the Personal Information collected through these offers or surveys may be shared with the sponsor(s) or other companies indicated on the entry form, in the governing rules or on the survey, as applicable.
We engage other companies and individuals to perform certain services and functions on our behalf. For example, we may engage third parties to send email and postal mail, analyze data, provide marketing services, process applications, provide search results and links (including paid listings and links), and provide customer service. We contractually obligate these service providers to access and use the Personal Information we make available to them only as needed to perform their functions and for no other purposes.
We reserve the right to disclose Personal Information to the extent permitted by applicable law, for example:
We may disclose Personal Information about you to third parties when we believe such disclosure is appropriate to comply with a legal requirement, such as a law, regulation, court order, subpoena or search warrant, or in the course of a legal proceeding. We may also disclose Personal Information as we believe appropriate to enforce or apply our rights under our agreements with Registered Users, to protect the rights, property or safety of ScoutIt, Inc., our Registered Users and others, including exchanging information for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
In addition to the above, we may share Personal Information about you with others to the extent you consent to such sharing.
We may provide Nonpersonal Information about you to clients, partners, Rewards Program Sponsors, Award Providers, Participating Retailers, or others for marketing, analysis and other purposes. For example, your purchase information may be aggregated with the purchase information of other Registered Users and analyzed to evaluate the effectiveness of certain award offers or advertisements, and the results of that analysis may be shared with Rewards Program Sponsors, Award Providers, Participating Retailers, or others.
