Privacy Policy

Last updated: August 25, 2017

Privacy Policy Scope

This Privacy Policy identifies and describes the way Price Technologies, Inc. (“Price.com,” “we,” “us” and “our”) uses and protects the information we collect about users. All use of Price. com website(s), products, services and applications (the “Services”), are subject to this Privacy Policy. We built the Services to help our users efficiently save time and money by locating deals on the products and services they are most interested in. If you have any questions or comments, please let us know at Privacy@price.com.

The Information We Collect, How We Collect It, And How We Use It.

We may collect different types of personal and other information based on your use of our Services.

Information You Provide to Price.com

The Services obtain information you directly provide when you optionally register as a member of the Services. Registration with us is required in order to be able to use some, but not all, features of the Services. When registration is required to use a feature you will be prompted to log in or to create an account if you have not already done so.

When you register with us and use the Services, you are generally asked to provide your name, email address, username, password and other registration information. As you continue to use the Services, using many features will create additional user-provided information such as when you post content on the Services. Additionally when you contact us for help or enter other information into our systems it is collected to help provide the Services to you.

From time to time we may contact you to provide you with important information, required notices and marketing promotions. As a general operating principle we will try to build the option to limit any excessive communications that many people could find annoying while continuing to build the best possible service for our users.

Information Collected Automatically

In order to provide the features available in the Services we also collect certain information automatically, including, but not limited to, the type of devices you use, your device’s unique device IDs where available or set, the IP address of your device, your operating system, the type of browsers you use, how you engage with websites you visit using the Services, non-personal data extracted from third party websites, and information about the way you use the Services such as when you click on a button to take certain actions on the Services.

Where possible we work to make settings available to you as a member to control which features are available and the information required for us to provide each.

How We Use the Information We Collect

We may use the information we collect in a variety of ways, including:

Online Activity Tracking

Information Sharing

We may also disclose user provided information and automatically collected information, including any personally identifiable information that is included in the foregoing, to third parties in the following circumstances:

Additionally, when you complete a purchase with Price.com Price service, we share your submitted shipping address and phone number for shipping purposes only. This information is shared with the entities fulfilling and shipping your order, such as the merchant and the shipping provider.

Price Points and Other Offers

We work with partners and merchants to make Price Points and other offers available to you as a Price.com member that are often better than those that are available to the general public. In some cases your eligibility for some of these offers is based in whole or in part upon data we or our partners and merchant collect. When Price.com user provided or automatically collected information is used for offer qualification some personally identifying information may be transferred to the partner or merchant if required by the applicable partner or merchant.

In some cases an action is required by you in order to claim an offer such as by clicking on a “Buy Now” or “Unlock Deal” button presented in our software. Claiming an offer does not guarantee it will be available when you check out as there may be additional requirements from our merchant partner to successfully redeem an offer, including tracking your purchase through to delivery. When you claim an offer we will make a commercially reasonable effort to ensure that the offer remains available but do not make any specific guarantees as we and our merchant partners rely on numerous third party systems employing a mix of technologies including cookies to track results. Your use of other software including ad blockers or other affiliate or offer programs provided by other third parties can also interfere with this tracking in which case you may no longer be eligible for the offer. If you encounter problems redeeming an offer please contact us at hello@price.com and we will try to help resolve your problem.

Anonymous & Aggregate Information

What are my opt-out rights?

You can stop all collection of information by the Services easily by uninstalling the Services and no longer visiting our website and applications. You may use the standard uninstall processes as may be available as part of your web browser, mobile device or via the mobile application marketplace or network.

Additionally, to give you even greater control over your privacy we give you the option to opt-out of some data collection in the account settings pages. In some cases, opting out of data collection will limit or block our ability to provide certain features of the Services such as Price Points negotiated with our merchant partners based on use of this data to qualify you for an offer.

Safeguarding Your Information: Our Policy on Data Protection and Security

Price.com uses a variety of physical, managerial, and technical safeguards designed to improve the security of our systems and your personally identifiable information. We cannot, however, ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to Price.com, nor can we guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards. You transfer your information to Price.com at your own risk.

Our Commitment to Children’s Privacy

Protecting the privacy of young children is especially important. For that reason, Price.com does not knowingly collect or maintain personally identifiable information from persons under 13 years-of-age, and no part of the Services is directed to persons under 18. If Price.com learns that personally identifiable information of persons less than 13-years-of-age has been collected on the Services without verifiable parental consent, then Price.com will take the appropriate steps to delete this information. If you are a parent or guardian and discover that your child under the age of 13 has obtained a User Account on the Services, then you may alert Price.com at Privacy@Price.com and request that Price.com delete that child’s personally identifiable information from its systems.
