What data we collect and why
Our vision is to maximize the rewards for all of 514deals Members and to provide as many Member benefits as possible. The key way in which 514deals provides value is to share with Members the commissions we receive from our affiliated stores (“CashBack Program”). Therefore, 514deals collects data on the devices that access or attempt to access our websites. The information we collect, which may include your name, email address and physical address, is used to track and send the cash back payments (“Cash Back”) Members earn. This device data is used in conjunction with a third party security partner to identify and prevent fraudulent activity and does not include personally identifiable information. Additionally, we may use information on the stores you visit or the offers you view on 514deals to select special offers that will be relevant to you. Except at an aggregate level, however, we do not share that information with our store partners or other third parties. Finally, 514deals collects data on the devices that access or attempt to access our websites.
Who sees your personal information
514deals limits the use, disclosure and retention of your personal information. “Personal information” or “information” means information about an identifiable individual such as contact information, account numbers, or details such as age, marital status, and financial information. This information can be in any form including paper, electronic, video or voice recording.
We will not use or disclose your personal information for purposes other than those for which it was collected without your explicit consent or as required by law. Only a very limited number of 514deals employees ever have access to your personal information. This information is used to track and send the Cash Back payments you earn.
We may use contractors or suppliers to help us provide some of the Cash Back Program services. If we need to disclose personal information for them to provide the services, it is with the requirement that the information is kept confidential and is used only for those services. We reserve the right to disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, investigate fraud, respond to government request, court order, or similar legal process or to protect 514deals and its Members from any losses. We may divulge your personal information to any other third party with your prior consent to do so.
How we keep your information secure
The security of your personal information is important to 514deals. Depending on your web browser you may see a secure webpage indicator, for example a closed lock in the lower right hand corner of the Internet Explorer browser. We use a secure, encrypted connection (SSL connection) on all pages where you access or transmit personal information.
Your privacy with 514deals
