PRICEADJUST RESPECTS YOUR PRIVACY
This Privacy Notice describes how PriceAdjust.ca (“PriceAdjust,” “We,” “Us” or “Our”) collects, shares, and uses information about you (“You”). It applies to Your use of any online service location (e.g., website) that posts a link to this Privacy Notice and all features, content, and other services that We own, control, and make available through such service location (collectively, the “Service”). It does not apply to our data collection activities offline or outside of our Service (unless otherwise stated below or at the time of collection).
By using the Service, You agree to Our Terms and Conditions and consent to Our collection, use and disclosure practices, and other activities as described in this Privacy Notice.
1.1 Information You Provide to Us
We collect information You provide directly to Us via the Service. For example, We collect information when You register for the Service, use the Service, connect Your email accounts to the Service, take action regarding claims, subscribe to Our emails, mobile messages, or social media notifications, participate in a sweepstakes, contest, promotion, survey, or poll (each, a “Promotion”), communicate with Us via third party social media sites, contact customer support, apply for a job or otherwise communicate with Us through the Service.
The information We collect may include Personal Information. “Personal Information” is information that can be used to identify You (whether alone or in combination), such as Your first and last name, email address, postal code, billing address, shipping address, and phone number.
1.2 Information We Automatically Collect
The methods that We and Our service providers may use to automatically collect such information include:
Log Information: We collect information about Your use of Our Service, such as IP address, browser type, Internet service provider, referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamps, and related data, and store it in log files.
Cookies: A cookie is a small text file that is stored on a user’s device. We use both session ID cookies and tracking cookies. Session cookies make it easier for You to navigate Our Service and expire when You close Your browser. Tracking cookies help Us understand how You use the Service, and enhance Your user experience. Cookies remain on Your hard drive for an extended period of time. If You use Your browser’s method of blocking or removing cookies, some features and functionalities of Our Service may not work.
Web Beacons: Web beacons are small graphic images, also known as “Internet tags” or “clear gifs” embedded in web pages and email messages. Web beacons may be used to count the number of visitors to Our Service, to monitor how users navigate the Service, and to count how many particular articles or links were actually viewed.
Embedded Scripts: An embedded script is programming code that is designed to collect information about Your interactions with the Service. It is temporarily downloaded onto Your device from Our web server or a third party with whom We work, is active only while You are connected to the Service, and is deleted or deactivated thereafter.
Email Scanner: an automatic email fetcher that scans your emails to identify purchase receipts for the purpose of monitoring your purchases for price adjustment opportunities. PriceAdjust identifies purchase receipts on a best effort basis but may also identify and read emails that are not purchase receipts if they contain similar characteristics to purchase receipts, such as merchant names and amounts.
We are giving you notice of the Tracking Technologies and your choices regarding them explained in Sections 6 and 7, so that Your consent to encountering them is meaningfully informed.

We use this information to administer the contest, notify contest winners and award prizes and to monitor site traffic.

Some information about Your use of the Service and certain Third Party Services may be collected across time and services and used by Us and third parties for purposes such as to associate different devices You use, and deliver relevant and targeted ads (“Interest-based ads”) and/or other content to You on the Service and certain Third Party Services.

Your browser settings may allow You to automatically transmit a “Do Not Track” signal to online services You visit.

7. Your Choices
7.1 Terminate your PriceAdjust Account
You may terminate your PriceAdjust account by disabling PriceAdjust to access your email through your Email Service Provider account settings or by contacting Us email@example.com. However, deactivation of your account does not mean your Personal Information has been deleted from our database entirely. We will retain and use your Personal Information as necessary to comply with our obligations, resolve disputes and enforce our agreements for a certain period of time and as required by applicable law. We may also indefinitely retain information that has been de-identified. Please note that it is not always possible to completely remove or delete all of Your information from Our databases and that residual data may remain on backup media or for other reasons.
7.2. Tracking Technologies Generally
Regular cookies may generally be disabled or removed by tools available as part of most commercial browsers, and in some instances blocked in the future by selecting certain settings. Browsers offer different functionalities and options so You may need to set them separately. Please be aware that if You disable or remove these technologies some parts of the Service may not work and that when You revisit the Service Your ability to limit browser-based Tracking Technologies is subject to Your browser settings and limitations. With respect to our mobile applications, You can stop all collection of information by uninstalling the app. Also, You may be able to exercise specific privacy choices by adjusting the permissions in Your mobile device.
7.3 Analytics, Advertising, and Online Tracking
Certain companies may participate in the Digital Advertising Alliance (“DAA”) AdChoices Program and may display an Advertising Option Icon for Interest-based Ads that links to an opt-out tool which allows You to exercise certain choices regarding targeting. You can learn more about the DAA AdChoices Program at http://www.youradchoices.com/ and its opt-out program for mobile apps at http://www.aboutads.info/appchoices. In addition, certain advertising networks and exchanges may participate in the Network Advertising Initiative (“NAI”). NAI has developed a tool that allows consumers to opt-out of certain Interest-based Ads delivered by NAI members’ ad networks. To learn more about opting out of such targeted advertising or to use the NAI tool, see http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/. Please be aware that such opt-outs do not affect non-targeted ads. We are not responsible for the effectiveness of, or compliance with, any third-parties’ opt-out options or programs or the accuracy of their statements regarding their programs.
You can opt-out of receiving certain promotional communications (emails, push notifications) from Us at any time by following the instructions as provided in emails to click on the unsubscribe link or by contacting Us firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that Your opt-out is limited to the email address used and will not affect subsequent subscriptions or non-promotional communications, such as such as administrative and service announcements.
8. Data Security
We take reasonable measures to help protect information about You from loss, theft, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction. Nevertheless, transmission via the Internet is not completely secure and PriceAdjust cannot guarantee the security of Your information collected through Our Service.
9. Changes to this Privacy Notice
We reserve the right to change this Privacy Notice at any time. If We make changes, We will notify You by revising the date of this Privacy Notice, and in some cases, providing You with additional notice (such as adding a statement to the homepage of Our Service or sending You an email notification). Any changes will be effective immediately upon the posting of the revised Privacy Notice on the Service.
