When you interact with us through the Services, we may collect Personal Data and other information from you, as further described below:
Non-Identifiable or Aggregated Data: When you interact with Fivestars through the Services, we also receive and store certain personally non-identifiable information. Such information, which is collected passively using various technologies, cannot presently be used to specifically identify you. Fivestars may store such information itself or such information may be included in databases owned and maintained by Fivestars affiliates, agents or service providers. We may use such information and pool it with other information to track, for example, the total number of visitors or users of the Services, the number of visitors to each page of our website, the domain names of our visitors' Internet service providers, and how our users use and interact with the Service. Also, in an ongoing effort to better understand and serve the users of the Services, Fivestars may conduct research on its customer demographics, interests and behavior based on the Personal Data and other information provided to us. This research may be compiled and analyzed on an aggregate basis. Fivestars may share this non-identifiable and aggregate data with its affiliates, agents and business partners, but this type of non-identifiable and aggregate information does not identify you personally. Fivestars may also disclose aggregated user statistics in order to describe our services to current and prospective business partners, and to other third parties for other lawful purposes.
Fivestars is not in the business of selling your information. We consider this information to be a vital part of our relationship with you. There are, however, certain circumstances in which we may share your Personal Data with certain third parties without further notice to you, as set forth below:
Rewards Providers: To the extent you have obtained or redeemed a reward offered by a merchant (“Rewards Providers”), added a Reward Provider as a membership to your account or otherwise participated in any other activity sponsored or offered through the Service on behalf of the Rewards Provider, we may provide such Rewards Providers with your Personal Data (a) in order for the Rewards Provider to redeem and validate your reward, send you customized offers, troubleshoot redemption, combat fraud and otherwise communicate with you, (b) as part of legal proceedings affecting Fivestars and the Rewards Provider, or (c) to facilitate a direct relationship between the Rewards Provider and you or.
Business Transfers: As we develop our business, we might sell or buy businesses or assets. In the event of a corporate sale, merger, reorganization, dissolution or similar event, Personal Data may be part of the transferred assets.
Agents, Consultants and Related Third Parties: Fivestars, like many businesses, sometimes hires other companies to perform certain business-related functions. Examples of such functions include maintaining databases, sending emails and SMS messages, offering and developing certain features of the Services, and maintenance and security. When we employ another company to perform a function of this nature, we only provide them with the information that they need to perform their specific function. We also disclose automatically collected data (card scans, promotional activities, and redemption information) to our Rewards Provider, third-party ad servers and advertisers. These third parties may match this data with information that they have previously collected about you under their own privacy policies, which you should consult on a regular basis.
Your Public Profile: If you make any information available through your public profile, it will be made available to members of the Fivestars community. Please note that your first name and last initial and photo are, by default, available on your public profile. Your phone number, email address, and birthday are private and will never be displayed publicly as part of any profile.
Legal Requirements: Fivestars may disclose your Personal Data if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to (i) comply with a legal obligation or assist government enforcement agencies, (ii) protect and defend the rights or property of Fivestars, Rewards Providers, or our users, (iii) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of the Services or the public, (iv) protect against legal liability; (v) protect Rewards Providers from fraudulent, abusive, or unlawful uses; or (vi) protect the security or integrity of the Services.
With the Ability to Opt-Out: We do not share Personal Data with other third-party organizations for their marketing or promotional uses without your consent except as part of a specific program or feature for which you will have the ability to opt-out. We may offer contests that require you to take an action in order to receive a reward. This data is provided to the advertiser and you will always have the option to not participate.
The Services will automatically send you SMS messages with updates and other information as part of the Services. You may stop receiving SMS messages from the Services generally by replying STOP in response to any received SMS from the program. You may also opt-out of receiving SMS messages on the Fivestars website. If you opt-out of receiving SMS messages, you may not be able to use certain Services.
You can use our website without providing any Personal Data. If you choose not to provide any Personal Data, you may not be able to use certain Services.
One of the special features of the Service is that it allows you to enable various online third party services, such as social media and social networking services (“Third Party Services”), to be directly integrated into your Fivestars experience. To take advantage of this feature, we will ask you to provide us your username and password for the relevant Third Party Services. By enabling such Third Party Services, you are allowing us to pass your log-in information to these service providers for this purpose. When you add a Third Party Service account to the Service, we will collect your login information and other relevant information necessary to enable the Service to access that Third Party Service and your data contained within that Third Party Service. However, please remember that the manner in which Third Party Services use, store and disclose your information is governed solely by the policies of such third parties, and Fivestars shall have no liability or responsibility for the privacy practices or other actions of any Third Party Service that may be enabled within the Service.
Fivestars takes reasonable steps to protect the Personal Data provided via the Services from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. However, no Internet, email, mobile or other electronic transmission is ever fully secure or error free, so you should take special care in deciding what information you send to us in this way.
