We may include web beacons in advertisements or email messages to better understand the behavior of our users. We do not link the web beacons or the mobile analytics software to any personal information.

We may allow business partners, service providers, advertising companies and ad networks, and other third parties to display advertisements on our Services. These companies may use tracking technologies, such as cookies and web beacons, to collect information about users to measure advertising effectiveness. Any information that these third parties collect via cookies and web beacons is completely anonymous.
Online Survey Data
We may conduct surveys for our members to participate in on a voluntary basis. Such surveys provide us with important information to improve your user experience. Any additional rules regarding the conduct of such surveys will be conveyed to you prior to your participation. Survey responses will be anonymous and will not be linked to any personal information.
E-Mails, Texts and Telephone Calls
By registering for our Services you are required to provide us with your e-mail address. We use your e-mail address for both transactional and promotional (e.g., discounts, event notifications, third-party offers and new product offerings) purposes. E-mail messages we send you may have code that enables us to track your usage of the e-mails, including whether they were opened and whether any links were clicked. If you would rather not receive promotional e-mails from us, either click the “unsubscribe” link on the bottom of the e-mail or go to the “Account Settings” page associated with your account, and un-check the undesired promotions. We reserve the right to send you certain administrative and service related communications, without offering you the opportunity to opt out of receiving them. We may also contact you by text message or telephone (including to any cellular number you provide us with) solely in connection with our Services. If you would rather not receive text messages or telephone calls from us, you may change or delete your number from your account preference page, or ask to be removed from our contact list if you receive a text or telephone call from us. We fully comply with the requirements of the Spam Act 2004 (Cth) and the U.S. CAN-SPAM Act of 2003, as applicable.
Other General Uses of Your Information We Collect
We may use your financial information to (i) process payment for any purchases made on our Services, (ii) enroll you in membership or subscriptions in which you elect to participate, (iii) to protect against or identify possible fraudulent transactions, and (iv) otherwise as needed to manage our business.
We may always perform these functions directly or use a third party vendor to perform these functions on our behalf who will be obligated to use your personal information only to perform services for us. Also, if you access our Services from a third party social media platform, we may share non-personal information with that platform to the extent permitted by your agreement with it and its privacy settings.
Disclosure of Your Information
Other Registered Members
We will disclose your profile information (including photos) to other registered members as a critical part of the provision of our Services. [We may also make features available enabling other registered members to share your profile information, including photos, with members of their social network(s). We never share your contact information with other registered members of the Services.]
We may share information, including personal information, with third parties that perform certain services on our behalf. These services may include providing customer service and marketing assistance, performing business and sales analysis, ad tracking and analytics, member screenings, supporting our website functionality, and supporting surveys and other features offered through our Services. We may also share your name, contact information and credit card information with our service providers who process credit card payments. Your personal information will be treated as private and confidential by such service providers and not used for any purposes other than the functions which we authorize.
When you register as a member on our Services or click-through our advertisements offered on third party websites or applications, we may share personal information with the businesses with which we partner to offer you the applicable products, services or any advertisements. When you elect to engage in a particular merchant's offer or program, you authorize us to provide your email address and other information to that merchant.
Non-Personal Information. The Australian Privacy Principles do not apply to non-personal information (including aggregated information), and therefore we may use and disclose such information for any purpose and by any means whatsoever, provided such use is also in compliance with the applicable laws of all jurisdictions in which such information has been obtained or is being disseminated. By way of example, we may share non-personal information and/or aggregated information (i) with third parties to develop and deliver targeted advertising on our Services and on websites or applications of third parties, and to analyze and report on advertising, and (ii) or personal information in hashed, non-human readable form, with third parties, including advisors, advertisers and investors, for the purpose of conducting general business analysis or other business purposes. Some portions of your account profile may be available to search engine crawlers and thus may appear in internet searches, but no personal information will be included in such search results. For example, we may engage a data provider who may collect web log data from you, or place a cookie on your browser to enable you to receive customized advertisements. The cookies may reflect de-identified demographic or other data linked to data you voluntarily have submitted to us (such as your email address), that we may share with a data provider solely in hashed, non-human readable form.
Our Services may include interactive forums such as chat rooms, messaging channels and message boards. Any information that is disclosed in these areas becomes public information and you should exercise caution when deciding to disclose your personal information.
What Choices Do You Have Regarding Your Information
We take appropriate security measures (including physical, electronic and procedural measures) to help safeguard your personal information from unauthorized access and disclosure. These measures include the use of Secure Socket Layer (SSL) and/or strong encryption (3DES) technology during credit card transactions and administrative access to our Services data. We will exercise reasonable care in providing secure transmission of information between your device and our servers, but given that no information transmitted over the internet can be guaranteed 100% secure, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information transmitted to us over the internet and therefore accept no liability for any unintentional disclosure. Users should also take care with how they handle and disclose their personal information and should avoid sending personal information through insecure email.
