Punchh (“Punchh,” “us,” “we,” or “our”) offers a variety of services on behalf of our customers (our “Customers”). We provide many of our services to you and other patrons of our Customers (“Users”) through the Punchh website and through mobile, point of sale, and online applications provided by and on behalf of Punchh and our Customers (collectively, our “Platform”). By patronizing the businesses of our Customers, you access and use these services through our Platform.
1. COLLECTION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
Personal information refers to information that is connected to Users and may include things such as email address, mailing address, mobile phone number, demographic information, and anonymized receipt details.
Punchh collects personal information when Users voluntarily submit it to us or when Customers submit User information on their behalf. For example, we may collect or receive information from a Customer about a User when the User creates an Account, edits their profile on our Platform, uses or accesses services or content through our Platform, or otherwise interacts with us, our Customers, or other Users of the Platform. Many methods Punchh uses to collect personal information require User opt-in. In addition to personal information that we may receive from Users or Customers, Punchh may collect other information about Users in the following ways:
- Cookies. "Cookies" are small bits of information that the Platform may place on the hard drive of a computer. Cookies remember information about activities on the Platform to make future User visits to the Platform more enjoyable and valuable by customizing experiences and recognizing User preferences when they visit a Platform. If a User has chosen to disable cookies on their browser, some of the functionality of the Platform may be lost. Users can opt-out of receiving some advertising and tracking devices based upon their browsing behavior by going to the Networking Advertising Initiative and Digital Advertising Alliance websites.
- Web Server Logs. Web server logs are records of activity created by the computer that delivers the webpages the User requests to their browser. For example, a web server log may record an entered search term or a clicked link. The web server log also may record information about User browsers, such as IP address and the cookies set on the browser by the server.
- Device Information. We may collect information about the mobile device or computer used to access the Platform, including without limitation the hardware model, operating system and version, browser type, unique device identifiers, and mobile network information.
- Social Networking Sites. If Users log into their Account through other third party services not operated by Punchh or our Customers (e.g., Facebook Connect), Users give Punchh permission to access certain information about them from that social networking site, such as Facebook User ID, user profile, friends list, and profile picture.
- Geolocation. Using the location tracking feature in a User mobile device or associated with a User’s access to the Platform may note a User’s location in order to pair the user with appropriate Customer information.
2. USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
Punchh’s primary purpose in collecting personal information is to provide Users with content and services that Users request through the Platform or that match User interests. Punchh may also use personal information for various other purposes, including without limitation to:
- Help diagnose problems with the Platform, improve Platform content, to administer the Platform, and to enhance the Platform for optimal User experience.
- Monitor the usage and performance of the Platform, and to determine aggregate information about our Users and usage patterns.
- Customize content and services that may be of interest to our Users.
- Facilitate transactions and process payments.
- Send Users materials, updates, and product information regarding the Platform or Customer services.
- Provide maintenance, support, and customer service for the Platform.
- Contact Users for information verification purposes.
- Contact Users (or to facilitate Customer’s contact of Users) for marketing purposes.
3. SHARING OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
Except as explained herein, we do not sell, rent, share, trade or give away personal information.
We do not share User information with third parties to directly market to Users, but we may market to Users on behalf of our Customer or other third parties that would like to send Users information about their products and services. For example, Punchh may offer a promotion in conjunction with a cosponsor that may have special offers or services that might be of interest to Users.
Except where a User might choose to include a full name in his or her profile, a User's email address and full name will only be used in the following circumstances:
- When the User invites a friend via email to become a Platform User,
- When the User sends a request to another User to add the other User to his or her friend list,
- When we send notifications to the User relating to their use of the Platform.
Punchh may share User personal information with service providers that perform services for Punchh, such as providing hosting services, marketing assistance, analyzing User data, and processing payment card information. There may also be instances when Punchh may disclose User personal information without providing Users with a choice in order to protect the legal rights of Punchh, other affiliated companies or their employees, agents, and contractors; to honor a request that Users have made through the Platform; to protect the safety and security of other Users; to protect against fraud or for risk management purposes; or to comply with the law. In addition, if Punchh sells all or part of its business or makes a sale or transfer of assets or is otherwise involved in a merger or business transfer, Punchh may transfer User personal information to a third party as part of that transaction.
The Platform may offer Users the ability to share personal information through a social networking site (e.g., Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn), using such site’s integrated tools (e.g., Facebook “Like” button, or Twitter “Tweet” button). The use of such integrated tools enables Users to share personal information about themselves with other individuals or the public. For more information about the purpose and scope of data collection and use in connection with such social networking site or a site’s integrated tools, please visit the privacy policies of the entities that provide these social networking sites.
The Platform is not meant for or targeted to children and should not be used by children under 13.
