Your Privacy Protections
We take several steps to protect your Personal Information. Among other things:
- We will not disclose your Personal Information to any nonaffiliated third party for use in marketing that party's goods or services without your consent;
- We will give you access to information we maintain on your name, how to contact you, credit cards you have registered with the Rewards Network, and certain other preferences you have registered with us ("Registration Information"), and we will allow you to correct any inaccuracies; and
- We will take reasonable steps to protect the security of the Personal Information we collect about you.
What Personal Information We Collect
We gather the following types of Personal Information in connection with the provision of our services to you.
- Information you voluntarily provide to us. For example, when you register to participate in the Rewards Network, you may provide us with Personal Information.
- Information about your transactions with us or with others. For example, we collect Personal Information from merchants that accept your credit card as payment for goods or services, including merchants that are participating in the Rewards Network or that have agreed to help us evaluate our program. We may also collect Personal Information from merchants or other parties who do not participate in the Rewards Network.
- Information obtained about you from others. For example, we work with firms that provide us demographic information or that enroll you in the Rewards Network (like a credit card company or airline).
What Personal Information We Disclose
We do not disclose any Personal Information to nonaffiliated third parties, except as necessary for the nonaffiliated third party to provide services to us (such as printing or mailing services) or as permitted by law. This means that we will not disclose your Personal Information (such as your telephone number) to nonaffiliated third parties for such parties' use in marketing its goods or services without your consent.
However, since we may disclose information as permitted by law, we may, for example, disclose Personal Information in connection with giving you credit for rewards, carrying out a transaction you have requested, operating or managing our business, or responding to legal process.
We may obtain your consent to share information with third parties in various ways. For example, we may invite you to participate in a survey or special promotional program offered by a third party and your choice to participate in such a survey or promotional program will indicate your consent for us to share information with third parties in connection with the survey or promotional program.
We also may disclose any Personal Information we collect with our affiliates. However, we will not disclose with our affiliates any Personal Information that is collected or used to determine eligibility for credit, insurance, or employment (such as a consumer report from a consumer reporting agency), except as permitted by law or to affiliates that provide services for us, unless we give you the right to ask us not to do so.
We may share information that is not personally identifiable to you ("Anonymous Information"), including aggregated demographic and statistical information, with our affiliates, partners, merchants, and others. Such information could be used, for example, to provide us with statistical or other analysis. None of this Anonymous Information can be linked by the recipient to any Personal Information that can identify you.
Communicating With You
We may from time to time send special offers to you on behalf of selected companies that we think may be of interest to you. However, because we or our third party vendors (and not the selected company) would send such offers to you, it is not necessary to disclose Personal Information to the company in order to send these offers to you. We also may send you offers for goods or services sold by us or our affiliates, including in our email newsletters, by email or ordinary mail, or by telephone.
We will allow you to choose not to receive these marketing communications from us. For example, if you do not want to receive our dining email newsletters, or other dining email marketing communications from us, you may unsubscribe or opt out from such dining marketing communications by clicking the link included at the bottom of each email message we send to you. You also can choose to not receive special offers we send on behalf of other companies. Please read the section entitled "Reviewing, Changing Your Registration Information or Unsubscribing" for details on how to request not to receive these marketing communications.
