Society of Shop Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy covers the Society of Shop website located at http://www.societyofshop.com and related applications (collectively, the “Site”). Throughout this Privacy Policy, we refer to information that personally identifies you as "personal information"; we refer to information about the recommendations you make via Society of Shop as “recommendation information”; we refer to these two types of information collectively as "member information".

The Privacy Policy is intended to describe for you, as an individual who is a user of the Site or of the services offered on the Site (collectively with the Site, the "Services"), the information we collect, how that information may be used, with whom it may be shared, and your choices about such uses and disclosures.

We encourage you to read this Privacy Policy carefully when using the Services. By accessing the Services, you acknowledge and agree that you have read, fully accept, and will abide by this Privacy Policy.

Information We Collect

When you register with us, we collect personal information such as name, email address, tax information such as Social Security Number, and mailing address.

When you post a recommendation using the Society of Shop bookmarklet, we store information about that recommendation, including its URL and message content. We store this recommendation information for performance and commission reporting purposes only.

Cookies

When you access the Services, we may set cookies on your computer, but these are to provide such user experience conveniences as automatic login. We do not gather personal or identifiable information on visitors to the site through the use of cookies. Most browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies. If you choose to decline cookies, please note that you may not be able to use some of the interactive features offered by the Services.

We Protect Your Information

We do not review, share, distribute, print, or reference any of your member information except as provided herein, or as may be required by law. For example, we may be required to disclose personal information to cooperate with regulators or law enforcement authorities to comply with a legal process such as a court order, subpoena, search warrant or a law enforcement request.

We protect your member information from loss, misuse, or unauthorized alteration through the use of industry-recognized physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality and security of your user registration and password.

Only our employees and agents can access your member information, and then only to fulfill our obligations to you as a member of Society of Shop, for example to settle commission payments, or to resolve a problem, support issue, quality concern or suspected violation of Society of Shop’s Terms of Use.

We use your member information to tell you about new features of Society of Shop, new merchants who have joined the service, merchant promotions, and the like. You can opt out of these types of communications by using the "Unsubscribe” feature at the bottom of the email. We may need to communicate with you regarding how or where to send y ou payment or tax and other information relating to the service (such as service messages, critical notices, or legally mandated notices.) You may not opt-out of these types of transactional messages.

We use an industry-standard web analytics package to track, record, and analyze non-identifying and aggregate usage data about the visitors to our website.

As stated in our Terms of Use, you must be over the age of 18 to use this website; we neither knowingly request nor receive any personal information from children.

Our Relationships with Third Parties

This Policy only applies to the Society of Shop website and services. We do not exercise control over the sites that our service works with, such as Facebook and Twitter and the merchants with whom we partner (each, a "Third Party” and collectively, "Third Parties”). These other sites may place their own cookies or other files on your c omputer, collect data or solicit personal information from you. Specifically, our users may post links to Third Party websites through our bookmarklet. These Third Parties may use tracking technologies, such as cookies, to collect information about users who view or interact with their website. This information may allow them to deliver targeted advertisements and gauge their effectiveness. We encourage you to read such privacy policies of any associated third-party websites. It is the sole responsibility of such third parties to adhere to any applicable restrictions on the disclosure of your personal information, and Society of Shop shall not be liable for wrongful use or disclosure of your member information by any third party.

Should we sell, merge or transfer any part of our business, part of the sale may include your member information.

If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes to this privacy policy, our website, and other places we deem appropriate so that you are aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it.
