personally identifiable information we collect online
When you visit spree.com, we do not collect any personally identifiable information without your consent. If you are simply perusing our site and have not registered for any of our specific services, we collect no personally identifiable information from you. In order to register as a spree.com member, and be eligible for all spree.com services, however, we require that you provide us with your first and last name, mailing address (including street, city, state, country and postal code), and e-mail address. We use this information to mail you your Cashback rewards checks and to improve the content of our web site - - enabling us to customize the content and layout of our pages specifically for you, connecting you to a truly rewarding shopping experience. At registration, we also require, for member login identification purposes, that you select a SpreeID and password. The identifiers are entirely your choice and may be as personal or random as you like. To ensure compliance with United States Federal law, if you are a U.S. citizen or legal resident and your Cashback payment exceeds $50 in any given month, we require that you submit to us your Taxpayer Identification Number (Social Security Number) as we are required to report this payment as income to the Internal Revenue Service.
Additionally, at registration, you are invited to provide us with demographic information (e.g., age, salary). Although the choice is up to you, we encourage you to volunteer such optional information so we may provide a more personalized experience on our web site and thus deliver greater value to you, our guest. Demographic information is specifically used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use of and satisfaction with this site.
surveys and contests
From time to time our site requests information from users via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. Information requested may include contact and demographic information. Contact information will be used to notify the winners and award prizes.
how we protect your information
Spree.com is dedicated to the security of your personally identifiable information, and we take every commercially reasonable precaution to maintain that protection. To prevent unauthorized access or disclosure, maintain data accuracy, and facilitate the appropriate use of information, we use physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to attempt to protect the personally identifiable information we collect online. Encryption tools are used when collecting or transferring sensitive information such as credit card numbers. Additional database content is protected either by means of a two key encryption algorithm or behind a firewall using security software.
If you have any questions about the security at spree.com, please contact us.
do we employ "cookies"?
“Cookies” are small data files stored on your own computer's hard drive. They are generated by web sites such as spree.com to provide users with a personalized and enhanced online experience. By assigning and storing a unique user name cookie on your hard drive, we are able to offer you personalized collection, filtering, and delivery of information that we feel will be of the greatest interest and value to you. Overall, aggregated usage information helps us improve our offerings by showing us how different areas of the web site are being used.
Be assured that cookies, by themselves, cannot be used to reveal or discover the identity of the individual user; your acceptance of our cookie will not compromise your anonymity while using our web site. This includes not only our web site's original content, but also advertisements especially targeted to you in accordance with your content preferences and traffic patterns, as revealed by the cookie. If you choose to reject the cookie, you may still shop and earn Cashback through our web site, although certain functions and applications may be disallowed as a result, and you will not benefit from the personalized and enhanced services discussed throughout this policy.
do we employ "clickstream" tracking?
A “clickstream” or “clickstream data” reflects the specific web pages visited by an individual user, and, importantly, the manner or traffic pattern by which a user moves from one web page to another. We track and use this information to understand how our users' habits are similar to or different from one another and specifically to personalize the content, banner ads and promotions that you and other users will see on our site.
Clickstream data does not contain or reveal any personally identifiable information about the user.
our use of your personally identifiable information
Our primary use of the personal information you volunteer is to provide you with your Cashback rewards checks and Member Network and Cashback Reports. Spree.com also may store and use your personal information for our own internal purposes including list management and demographic matching with other database information. In order to provide accurate reporting your SpreeID, name, state, e-mail address and monthly cashback amounts appear on the Member Network and Cashback Reports of the spree member who referred you to spree.com. We specifically reserve the right to access, monitor, and retrieve password-protected information to ensure your compliance with our web site Terms and Conditions, and to comply with law.
Additionally, composite tracking information generated by cookies for traffic accounting and content analysis may be shared with third parties for the purpose of documenting site activity and other trends. We emphasize that the foregoing statistical information is not linked to any personal information and cannot identify any individual user of our web site.
The information you provide us is an important part of our business, and we are not in the business of selling it to others. We share member information only with the subsidiaries of spree.com, and as described below. Sometimes we send offers to selected groups of spree.com members on behalf of our partners. When we do this, we do not give that partner your name and address. If you do not want to receive these valuable offers, you just need to unsubscribe from our e-mail promotions.
In the course of our day-to-day business, we employ outside companies and individuals to perform functions for us. Examples include, sending mail and e-mail, cleaning duplicate information from customer lists, analyzing information, providing marketing assistance, processing credit card transactions, and providing customer service. They have access to the personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.
As our company changes and grows, we might sell or buy companies, subsidiaries, or assets. In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets. Also, in the event that spree.com or substantially all of its assets are acquired, member information will, of course, be one of the transferred assets.
our retention of your personally identifiable data
Once you have registered with spree.com, we will store and maintain the personally identifiable information you have volunteered for so long as you remain a spree.com member and have not directed us otherwise, or for so long as we are required by law. Our retention of your data allows us to continue providing you with highly personalized services without interruption.
Spree.com believes that choice is one of the most important privacy principles. You have the choice not to submit any personally identifiable information to us (although under such circumstances you would be unable to register as a member). You also may choose to submit only those mandatory fields of data absolutely required for registration on our web site.
Likewise, should you prefer not to receive e-mail communications from us, we provide a mechanism for opting out of this service during your member registration by clicking off the box that states “Please keep me informed about great savings opportunities at spree.” Additionally, each e-mail message we send you will provide a link to unsubscribe from the e-mail list.
Please note that you will not be able to opt out with regard to the collection and disclosure of aggregate information. Such information does not include anything personally identifiable, however, and simply reflects statistical analysis of various aspects of site usage. Additionally, you will not be able to opt out of our use of your personal information on the Member Network and Cashback Reports of the member who referred you because we feel that it is important to provide our members with the means to confirm our fulfillment of our cashback obligations.
access and accuracy
Spree.com aims to keep your personally identifiable information as accurate as possible. As an online user, you will have the opportunity to access and change your personal contact information at any time. Simply go to the "your account" area of www.spree.com and modify your contact information. By doing so, you may add, delete, or change individual fields of data in your personal account profile. At this time, there is no capability for the modification or deletion of a member's previously entered demographic information.
Should you at any time desire to remove your name and related information from our list of spree.com members, you may contact us. After receipt of such a request, we will remove your personally identifiable information from our records as soon as commercially reasonable.
