When you use these coupons or other deals (“Coupons”) to make a purchase from a Brand, we collect certain information from the applicable Brand with respect to that purchase transaction (“Transaction Information”). This Transaction Information is necessary to allow us to track and collect amounts owed to us by the applicable Brands in connection with our operation of the Site and the Service. By using any Coupon linked or posted to the Site to make a purchase from any Brand, you consent to Upright Data’s collection and use of all related Transaction Information for the purposes set forth in this paragraph.

For more information, see Data Participation Network, below.
How We Share Your Personal Information
We may disclose aggregated information about our users, and information that does not identify any individual user, without restriction.
Data Participation Network
In connection with Upright Data’s operation of its various websites and online services, including, without limitation, the Site and Service (collectively, the “Upright Network Sites”), Upright Data has developed a data sharing program that allows visitors to Upright Network Sites to leverage their data to increase the relevance and applicability of content made available to them by Upright Data, both on its own behalf and on behalf of third party users of Upright Data’s data and marketing service (collectively, the “Data Participation Network”), as detailed more specifically in our Terms of Service. By accessing or using the Site or the Service, you consent to your participation in the Data Participation Network, including your provision of Participant Data (as defined below).
Data used in the Data Participation Network
As discussed above, we collect Transaction Information any time you use a Coupon to make a purchase from a Brand. We may combine this Transaction Information with other information we collect with respect to your use of the Site and Service, such as which coupons you view or access through the Site (collectively, with Transaction Information, “Service Data”). Service Data is collected any time you access or use the Site or the Service, and by accessing or using the Site or the Service, you expressly consent to our collection and use of your Service Data, as detailed herein. If you do not want us to collect this Service Data, please do not access or use the Site or Service in any manner (including, without limitation, by using any Coupons linked or posted to the Site).
Additionally, you may elect to provide additional personal information to Upright Data in exchange for enhanced discounts (as detailed more specifically in our Terms of Service), which information may include: (i) your email address; (ii) your responses to marketing questions posed to you by Upright Data; and/or (iii) such other information as Upright Data may specifically request from you at the time you are offered the enhanced discount (collectively, “Opt-in Data” and, together with Service Data, “Participant Data”). Any submission of Opt-in Data by you is voluntary and is made at your discretion. If you choose not to provide Opt-in Data, you will still be able to access the Site and the Service, and use Coupons posted or linked to the Site, however you will not be entitled to receive, and will not have access to, any enhanced discounts.
Use of Participant Data
Participant Data may be combined with other of your personal information collected through other Upright Network Sites (where you have consented to collection of your personal information by those websites), and may be used and transmitted by Upright Data across and in support of the Data Participation Network, including in connection with our operation of our external data and marketing service. More specifically, we may collect, examine, manipulate, aggregate, analyze, create analysis using, reproduce and otherwise use your Participant Data to identify trends and insights with respect to your purchasing behaviors and preferences, which we may use to display targeted advertisements to you on behalf of those data and marketing service users and to otherwise help tailor our Coupon offerings and advertisements to your needs and preferences and to those of our other Service users. If you have elected to provide Opt-in Data to us, we may also use your Participant Data and the trends and insights identified through our analysis thereof to contact you via email regarding the goods and services of our data and marketing service users in which you may be interested. **Please note that Upright Data does not sell any personal information, even under the broad CCPA definition of a “sale.” **We do not distribute your Participant Data directly to users of our data and marketing services; rather, Participant Data (and any trends and insights we identify from your Participant Data) will only be available to users of our data and marketing services on an aggregated basis that does not identify any particular data subject, and only for purposes of allowing such users to select and utilize our data and marketing services.
If you have previously elected to provide Upright Data with Opt-in Data but no longer wish to permit Upright Data to contact you via email regarding the goods and services of our data and marketing service users, please see **Your Choices, **below, for more information on how to opt out of receiving further emails.

Upright Data takes protecting your information seriously, and implements reasonable measures to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration, and disclosure. However, the safety and security of your information also depends on you.
Please note that the electronic transmission of information is not completely secure. We cannot guarantee that the security measures we have in place to safeguard information will never be defeated or fail, or that such measures will always be sufficient or effective.

The Service is administered by Upright Data in the United States. When we obtain information about you through your access to or use of the Site or the Service or when you input or import information to the Service (including, without limitation, to the Data Participation Network) from somewhere other than the United States, we may transfer, process, and store such information in the United States. If you access the Site and/or the Service from outside the United States, you do so on your own initiative, at your sole risk, and you are responsible for compliance with all applicable laws. If you are a non-United States resident and provide us with your personal information, or if you use the Service, you consent to the transfer to and processing of such information in the United States, which may have data protection laws less stringent than those in the country in which you reside.

In addition to emails that may be sent to you if you elect to provide Opt-in Data, Upright Data may send Service updates, Service notifications, promotional information and other communications to you via email. Promotional email communications will contain instructions describing how you can opt out of receiving future promotional emails from us. If you opt out of promotional emails, you may continue to receive non-promotional, transactional emails from us.
Limiting Provided Information. You can choose not to provide us with certain information. If you decline to provide certain information, however, please note that some features of the Site and/or Service may then be inaccessible.
