Collection of personal information
Membership Accounts contain personal information, comprising of each members' name, postal address, email address, gender and date of birth.
We collect personal information as part of our effort to keep you informed about Groupy Deals that you may be interested in, to accept offers to purchase Groupy Deals and to confirm payment. We may also use the information to assist you to resolve a dispute, or issue you may have with, a Merchant or products or services provided by that Merchant and, where you raise an issue or dispute with us with respect to a Voucher or product or service, you authorise us to pass your personal information on to the Merchant as part of that process. We may also use the information to perform market research, plan future Groupy Deals, seek feedback and help make our website, products and services more useful to you.
If you make an offer to purchase a Groupy Deal, you will need to provide your credit card details. We will use this information to process payment. Once your payment is processed we will email you a confirmation and a unique voucher code for redemption. If you do not provide us with your correct email address we will not be able to forward you your voucher.
In the event that we merge, sell or otherwise change control of this website, we reserve the right to transfer or assign the personal information we have collected from you, without notice or consent.
Apart from the above, we do not sell, lease or in any other way provide personally-identifying information to any other company, person or agency.
We work hard to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Layer Sockets (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input. We reveal only the last 4 digits of your credit card numbers when confirming subsequent orders.
We take your data seriously. Our servers and processes for dealing with credit card information are PCI compliant. Your data is stored on secure servers and the servers are also in a secure environment with restricted access.
It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer.
We recognise and appreciate the importance of responsible use of personal information. If you do not want the information that you provide to us to be used to inform you of other products and Groupy Deals and you indicate this preference when you provide the information to us, we will honour your preference.
We will not use your email address to forward you information relating to any Groupy Deals or our products and services unless you have requested this information.
You may at any time opt out of receiving any further emails from us by clicking on the unsubscribe link of any emails that we have sent you. If you have any problems with opting out of any ongoing information service provided by us, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
