“Personal Data” means any information which, either alone or in combination with other information in our possession, enables you to be identified. We obtain Personal Data about you in a range of ways:
Information You Give Us
We collect your name, date of birth, gender, email address and credit or debit card information which you provide to us, as well as any other information you directly give us in our App or by linking any social media accounts to your profile in the App. In addition, we may also collect Personal Data from you when you correspond with us (for example, when you send us e-mails or letters, or contact us by telephone).
Information Automatically Collected
We use online analytics such as Google Analytics and other third party tools to automatically log information about you (such as the number of times you use our App and your location) and your device. For example, when using our App, we log your location to allow us to send you the most relevant offers. We also use this information to better understand how you use our App and for internal reporting purposes.
We automatically collect information about transactions that take place at retailers who are linked to our service. This information will include the date, time and value of the transaction and is used to allow us to invoice the retailer for the commission due to us and to calculate any cashback amount which may be awarded to you in accordance with our Terms and Conditions of Use.

- to respond to comments and questions and provide customer service;
- to send information including confirmations and statements;

- to protect, investigate, and deter against fraudulent, unauthorized, or illegal activity.
INTERNATIONAL TRANSFER OF PERSONAL DATA
We will not process and/or otherwise transfer your Personal Data outside the European Economic Area.
PROTECTING YOUR INFORMATION
