Privacy Policy

Things that we dont do

Send spam emails, or sell email addresses

We’re strictly complaint with the CAN-SPAM Act 2003 and other applicable anti-spam regulations. When you sign up you can specify what types of emails you want to receive. You can change your settings or unsubscribe from our mailing lists at any time.

Collect personal data via offers

When you complete surveys and other offers from our advertisers, we don’t receive that information. We are only sent a simple notification when an offer has been completed successfully.

Sell personal data

We never sell personal information about you to third parties. We’re compliant with data protection regulations and try to minimize the data we store wherever possible.

Your right to control your data

You have further rights, such as the right to amend your personal data and the right to request that we stop processing your data.

Wherever possible we allow you to change your privacy settings, in order to control how your data is used.

However, peventing fraud is essential to the operation of our service. We cannot allow users to amend their data or block processing, as it would inhibit our ability to combat fraud. Therefore, in order to exercise these additional rights, you may delete your account.

Your right to be forgotten

If your account remains completely inactive for an extensive period of time (greater than 3 months) we may delete it, in order to protect your privacy and ensure you are eventually forgotten.

Additionally, at any time you may delete your account yourself, by typing the word ‘DELETE’ in the settings tab and then updating your settings. Note that it may take several weeks for us to completely purge your personally identifiable data from all of our servers and backups.

Please note that, in order for us to monitor and prevent future fraud, we must continue to store some anonymous metadata such as IP Addresses. However, any data retained will no longer be associated with any personally identifiable data, such as email addresses or payment information.

If you delete your account you will lose all the points you have earned. Therefore you should consider this carefully before choosing to delete your account.

Your Consent

Article 9 of the GDPR identifies certain special categories of data that require explicit consent. These concern highly sensitive data such as sexual orientation and political affiliations.

We do not store, process or share any data categories that might be considered highly sensitive.

By registering an account you grant implicit consent for us to collect and use your data, as described in this Privacy Policy.

Data Category Level of Consent
Email Addresses Implicit
Passwords Implicit
IP Addresses Implicit
Device IDs Implicit
User Agents Implicit
Account IDs Implicit

This Privacy Policy does not extend your consent to third parties, with the exception of the Responsible Parties described elsewhere.

Please note that you may be asked highly sensitive questions, as part of offers or surveys on third party sites, which we may link to. We urge you to exercise caution and to read third party privacy policies carefully, before deciding to share your data.

Account IDs

When you create an account we will assign it a unique integer value, called your Account ID. We may then use this to identify your account with third parties, without having to expose any of your personal data.

Usage Description Default Optional?
Storage We need to store your Account ID, in order to identify your account. Enabled No
Processing We need to process your Account ID, in order to identify your account. Enabled No
Sharing We need to share your Account ID, in order to identify your account. Enabled No

Additionally, we provide you with a third party verification code. This is similar to your Account ID, and you can use it to verify non-personal statistics about your account via our API, with non-trusted third parties.

User Agents

When you connect to a website using a web browser a User Agent field is also usually transmitted. This contains information about what type of device you are using, your operating system type and version, your browser type and version, and other metadata which can be used to identify your device.

Usage Description Default Optional?

Processing We need to process your User Agents, in order to detect fraudulent activity. Enabled No
Sharing We never share your User Agents with any third parties. Disabled No

Device IDs

When you use any of our apps we may receive your Device ID. This is a unique code, which can be used to identify your device.

Processing We need to process your Device IDs, in order to detect fraudulent activity. Enabled No
Sharing We may need to share your Device IDs with any third parties, in order to allow conversions to be tracked. Enabled No

IP Addresses

Your IP Address is a unique return address, which is transmitted whenever you access our website or apps. We can use this data to determine which country you are in with around a 99% level of accuracy. Towns and cities can be identified with around an 80% level of accuracy, depending on the country you are in.

However, only your Internet Service Provider (ISP) knows your exact location. They manage the connection between your local internet exchange and your household.

Usage Description Default Optional?

Sharing We never share your historical IP Addresses with any third parties, although they may choose to share your current IP Address with us. Disabled No

Passwords

Your Password is a secret string of characters, which can be used to prevent others from accessing your account.

Usage Description Default Optional?
Storage

We never store a raw version of your password. Instead it is converted into a cryptographically secure hash before storage. A hashed password is almost impossible to convert back into its raw version, particularly if you use a difficult enough password, containing a broad range of characters.

Disabled Yes
Processing

We need to process your raw password, so we can convert it into a cryptographically secure hash.

This takes place on secure servers operated by our Primary Data Processor.

Disabled Yes
Sharing

We never share your password with any third party.

Disabled No

Email Addresses

Your Email Address is a unique address, which can be used to send you electronic mail.

Usage Description Default Optional?
Storage

We need to store your email address, so we can identity or contact you.

Furthermore, may need to store additional email addresses, if you provide them to us as payment settings.

Enabled No
Processing We need to process your email address, so we can identity or contact you. Enabled No
Sharing

We may need to display a partially obfuscated version of your email address to other users, as part of our social proof. For example, we might display [email protected] as john*****@gmail.com.

Additionally, in order to ensure you cannot be identified, we only share the domain names of widely used mailbox providers. For example, we might display [email protected] as john****@****.com.

We may need to share your email address with trusted third parties such as Google and Facebook, in order to link your account, or target you with relevant advertisements in the future.

We do not, under any circumstances, sell your email address to any third parties.
