CrowdClix has developed a proprietary software platform that, among other things, enables businesses to connect with each other and provide real-time local offers to their customers and clients. The technology enables businesses within the network to thank and reward their customers and clients with opportunities at neighboring establishments. The smart technology also learns from transactions to enhance the applicability of future and additional offers.
This policy describes the types of information we may collect from, or about, Individuals (as that term is described below) and how we collect, use, maintain, protect and disclose that information.
CrowdClix recognizes and respects the privacy of our clients and the consumers.
We have several different types of clients, including (i) marketing affiliates who provide the CrowdClix platform and service as part of their marketing tools; (ii) reseller affiliates who offer no management services, but who sign up businesses to be part of the CrowdClix network; (iii) group affiliates who have multiple business locations and/or the ability to control other businesses; and (iv) business customers, which are part of the CrowdClix network.
CrowdClix obtains information about consumers, which include individuals who are (i) customers of a particular business or client; (ii) members of a loyalty program; (iii) people who become customers of CrowdClix directly; or (iv) otherwise known to a marketing entity or a CrowdClix affiliate.
CrowdClix recognizes the importance of protecting personal data pertaining to all of CrowdClix’ clients and all of the consumers. For purposes of this policy, we will use the term “Individuals” to refer to all of these people individually and collectively. We will protect Individual information through compliance with this policy.
All Individuals should read the policy carefully to understand our policies and practices regarding Individual information and how we will treat it. If any Individual does not agree with the policy, the Individual must either (i) send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org stating that the Individual wishes to opt-out of CrowdClix’ use of Individual information; or (ii) follow the process set forth by the business entity (CrowdClix client) who originally collected the information. Unless and until CrowdClix receives notice of an Individual’s opt-out, either directly or from the CrowdClix client, all Individuals (except for EU citizens) hereby consent to the use of Individual information in accordance with this policy. Upon receipt of the opt-out notice, CrowdClix will record in the database that the Individual has opted-out from receiving further marketing campaigns, offers and other communication in the manner and degree as indicated in the notice.
We collect information from a variety of sources. Most of the information comes to us through our clients and the consumers; some information may come from third parties.

Any personal information provided or posted in public forums, such as a message board, chat room, discussion group, user review and rate forum, are not protected by this policy and may be collected, shared and used by CrowdClix or with third parties, including to contact an Individual.
CrowdClix does not currently collect personal information about Individuals when they interact with our website, but we may do so in the future. If we do, we will update this policy with more specific information about website tracking and usage. In the meantime, we do collect non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Our purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how CrowdClix’ visitors use its website. From time to time, CrowdClix may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, such as by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
CrowdClix uses the personal information to enable CrowdClix clients to communicate with Individuals, to provide a personalized experience as a purchaser or user of products and services, to inform Individuals about offers, discounts, and other benefits and to otherwise enable Individuals to receive credits, gift certificates, incentives or other marketing campaigns.
CrowdClix does not provide the personal information to third parties including, but not limited to, those who share or rent information for direct marketing purposes.
CrowdClix may disclose personal information as may be required by law, in response to legal processes and law enforcement requests and as necessary or appropriate, in CrowdClix’ view.
CrowdClix may also aggregate information about Individuals and/or their response to, or use of, marketing campaigns and offers. CrowdClix may supply aggregated information to its clients for business purposes, including evaluating the effectiveness of marketing campaigns and offers.
The information and lists collected by a CrowdClix client may be updated and/or synched on a schedule provided by CrowdClix, such as at midnight each day. CrowdClix does not own, manage, or create the data, information and lists provided by the clients. Similarly, CrowdClix does not create or participate in the creation of any marketing campaign, offer, or other communication to Individuals. As such, Individuals must address questions and concerns about their data collection and usage to the CrowdClix clients that collected or used the information in the creation or dissemination of any marketing campaign or other offer or communication.
