BY USING OUR SITES, YOU REPRESENT THAT YOU HAVE READ AND UNDERSTAND THIS PRIVACY POLICY.

WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT ABOUT YOU, AND HOW IS IT COLLECTED?  

Depending on how you use the Sites, we may collect your information: 

Directly From You, including but not limited to:

Account And Purchase Information

When you create an Account or purchase from us without creating an account, including via third-party websites or applications, you will provide information such as you name, email address, phone number, address, payment information, and/or password. We may also ask for demographic information or other information relevant to the offer, event, or prizes provided. 

Your Communications With Us

We collect your information, such as your email address, phone number, or mailing address when you request information about our Sites, register for our marketing communications, request customer or technical support, apply for a job, or otherwise communicate with us.

Surveys

We may contact you to participate in surveys. If you decide to participate, you may be asked to provide certain information to us. 

Social Media Content

We may offer forums, blogs, or social media pages. Any content you provide on these channels will be considered “public” for the purposes of this Privacy Policy. 

Sweepstakes or Contests

We may run sweepstakes and contests. Contact information you provide may be used to reach you about the sweepstakes or contest and for other promotional, marketing and business purposes, if permitted by law. In some jurisdictions, we are required to publicly share the information of winners.

User Content

Some features of the Sites may allow you to provide content to the Sites. All content submitted by you to the Sites may be retained by us indefinitely, even after you terminate your Account. We may continue to disclose such content to third parties in a manner that does not reveal your information, as described below.

Location Information

Some of our Services may include features based on your actual locations and may report your current locations (“Location-Based Services”). To the extent you use any Location-Based Services, we will collect and store information about your location at the time you use those Location-Based Services.  This information can come from a variety of sources depending on the client and device you use to access the Services; for example, a mobile phone may report its GPS location or IP address at the time Location-Based Services are used. You can opt out of Located-Based Services by changing the settings directly on your device.

Financial Information

If you make purchases through the Services, your financial information, such as your payment method (valid credit card number, type, expiration date or other financial information), is collected and stored by our third-party payment processing company (the “Payment Processor”), and use and storage of that information is governed by the Payment Processor’s applicable terms of service and privacy policy.  In order to facilitate your order transactions, we collect and store your billing zip code, credit card type and the last four digits of your credit card number, but no other financial information.

Shipping Information

We may collect your shipping information in connection with certain purchases through the Services. We may pass this information to our Payment Processor, Offer Providers, partners, and service providers for purposes of customer service, fulfillment, shipping and returns. The use of your personal information by such parties is subject to their respective privacy policies.

Automatically, including but not limited to:

We automatically receive and record information from your web browser or device when you interact with the Services, including your IP address, user settings, MAC address, cookie identifiers, mobile carrier, mobile advertising and other unique identifiers, details about your browser, operating system or device, location information, Internet service provider, pages that you visit before, during and after using the Sites, information about the links you click, and other information about how you use the Sites. Information we collect may be associated with accounts and other devices.

Generally, the Sites automatically collect usage information, such as the number and frequency of visitors to the Sites. We may use this data in aggregate form, that is, as a statistical measure, but not in a manner that would identify you personally. This type of aggregate data enables us and third parties authorized by us to figure out how often individuals use parts of the Services so that we can analyze and improve them.

From Third-Parties, including but not limited to:

We, as well as third parties that provide content, advertising, or other functionality on the Sites,  may use cookies, pixel tags, local storage, and other technologies (“Technologies”) to automatically collect information through the Sites. Technologies are essentially small data files placed on your computer, tablet, mobile phone, or other devices that allow us and our partners to record certain pieces of information whenever you visit or interact with our Sites. 

We may obtain information about you from other sources, including through third-party services and organizations to supplement information provided by you.  

If you access our Sites through a third-party website or application, such as an Offer Provider, app store, a third-party login service, or a social networking site (such as Facebook), we may collect information about you from that third party. Information we collect through these services may include your name, your user identification number, your username, location, gender, birth date, email, profile picture, and your contacts stored in that service. This supplemental information allows us to verify information that you have provided to us and to enhance our ability to provide you with information about our business, products, and Sites.

HOW WE USE AUTOMATIC COLLECTION TECHNOLOGIES

We, as well as third parties that provide content, advertising, or other functionality on the Sites, may use cookies, pixel tags, local storage, and other technologies to automatically collect information through the Services.  

  • Cookies. Cookies are small text files placed in visitors’ computer browsers to store their preferences. Most browsers allow you to block and delete cookies.  However, if you do that, the Sites may not work properly.
  • Pixel Tags/Web Beacons. A pixel tag (also known as a web beacon) is a piece of code embedded in the Sites that collects information about users’ engagement on that web page. The use of a pixel allows us to record, for example, that a user has visited a particular web page or clicked on a particular advertisement.
  • Analytics. We may also use Google Analytics and other service providers to collect information regarding visitor behavior and visitor demographics on our Sites. For more information about Google Analytics, please visit https://policies.google.com/technologies/partner-sites. You can opt out of Google’s collection and processing of data generated by your use of the Sites by going to https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout
  • Cross-Device Tracking. Your browsing activity may be tracked across different websites and different devices or apps. For example, we may attempt to match your browsing activity on your mobile device with your browsing activity on your laptop.  To do this our technology partners may share data, such as your browsing patterns, geo-location and device identifiers, and will match the information of the browser and devices that appear to be used by the same person.

NOTICE REGARDING THIRD PARTY WEBSITES, SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORMS AND SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT KITS

These social media features are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on our Sites. Your interactions with these features apart from your visit to our Sites are governed by the privacy policy of the company providing it.

We may also combine and share such information and other information (such as demographic information and past purchase history) with third party advertising partners. These advertising partners may use this information (and similar information collected from other websites) for purposes of delivering targeted advertisements to you when you visit third party websites within their networks. This practice is commonly referred to as “interest-based advertising” or “online behavioral advertising. We may allow access to other data collected by the Sites to share information that may be useful, relevant, valuable or otherwise of interest to you. If you prefer not to share your information with third party advertising partners, you may follow the instructions below.

  • In the Event of Merger, Sale, or Other Asset Transfers. If we are involved in a merger, acquisition, financing due diligence, reorganization, bankruptcy, receivership, purchase or sale of assets, or transition of service to another provider, then your information may be sold or transferred as part of such a transaction, as permitted by law and/or contract.

IS INFORMATION ABOUT ME SECURE?

Although no system can guarantee the complete security of your information, we take all commercially reasonable steps to ensure your information is protected in alignment with all applicable laws and regulations, as appropriate to the sensitivity of your information. Unfortunately, no system is 100% secure, and we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you provide to us.  

WHAT ARE MY RIGHTS AND CHOICES?

  • Account Deactivation. Should you ever decide to deactivate your Account, you may do so by emailing support@fevogm.com or otherwise through the Sites. If you deactivate your Account, any association between your Account and information we store will no longer be accessible through your Account.
