EZ Deals Privacy Policy

 
 

Last Updated August 6, 2019

OvdL3C DBA EZ Deals (“we” or “us” or “our”) respects the privacy of our users (“user” or “you”). This Privacy Policy explains how we collect, use, disclose, and safeguard your information when you visit our website, www.ezdeals.co, including any other media form, media channel, mobile website, or mobile application related or connected thereto (collectively, the “Site”). Please read this Privacy Policy carefully.

IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH THE TERMS OF THIS PRIVACY POLICY, PLEASE DO NOT ACCESS THE SITE.

We reserve the right to make changes to this Privacy Policy at any time and for any reason. We will alert you about any changes by updating the “Revised” date of this Privacy Policy. Any changes or modifications will be effective immediately upon posting the updated Privacy Policy on the Site, and you waive the right to receive specific notice of each such change or modification. You are encouraged to periodically review this Privacy Policy to stay informed of updates. You will be deemed to have been made aware of, will be subject to, and will be deemed to have accepted the changes in any revised Privacy Policy by your continued use of the Site after the date such revised Privacy Policy is posted.

HOW INFORMATION IS COLLECTED

Information may be collected in a couple of ways.

  1. Information provided by you.

When you request a sales quotation and or request services, you will be required to provide certain information in order for us to provide you with services.  This information may be collected in person or online.

  1. Mobile Beacons.

EZ Deals continues to use beacon technology to market our customers’ products and services.  Beacons do not collect any information regarding your preferences and habits in order to create a customized marketing experience.  Instead, the beacon behaves in a similar way to Geofencing [easy location-based marketing (ELBM)].  The beacon places a custom campaign as a cookie in nearby devices which sits in the queue until its turn.  As an example, while shopping online pop-ups follow you around. The notifications are not in real-time unless our client provides us with their own mobile app, because on December 6th, 2018, Google ended its support of the Nearby Notification program thus creating a lag.  Due to the cancellation of Nearby Notification, beacons do not always work consistently.  According to Near Notify, the beacons now work with the most mainstream apps such as Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Linkedin, Snapchat, etc. The beacons are purchased from a third-party vendor whose privacy policy may also apply.

  1. NFC Hardware Devices.

The NFC Devices utilize proximity marketing without an app. NFC or Near Field Communication enables compatible devices to communicate over short ranges. At any given time, one device must transmit information while the other must receive it. Our NFC devices behave like a digital business card with a one-touch custom campaign we attach for our clients.  NFC technology is a great alternative to QR codes. If the consumer base primarily uses smartphones, NFC stickers and keycards give our clients an added advantage because these devices have an extra layer of QR code on top combining two technologies into one product. This combination allows businesses to cater to both iPhone and Android users.  NFC devices do not collect any information regarding your preferences and habits in order to create a customized marketing experience.

  1. Social Media.

We have different options for our clients.  One option is that every digital coupon winner through the EZ Deals campaigns must share on their own private Facebook timeline.  When the winner shares on Facebook, EZ Deals does not collect any information.  However, with another option, our clients have a choice of having their winners sign in through different social media sites in order to claim their prize.  With this option, EZ Deals will collect their private data listed on their social media page and give that information to our clients which choose this option.  EZ Deals does not use any of that information. 

WHAT WE COLLECT

We may collect information about you in a variety of ways. The information we may collect on the Site and Landing Pages includes:

  1. Personal Data
    Personally identifiable information, such as the name, address, email address and telephone number.
  2. Derivative Data
    Information our servers automatically collect when someone accesses the Site, such as their IP address, their browser type, their operating system, their access times, and the pages they have viewed directly before and after accessing the Site.
  3. Financial Data
    Financial information, such as data related to your payment method (e.g. valid credit card number, card brand, expiration date) that we may collect when you purchase, order, return, exchange, or request information about our services from the Site. We store only very limited, if any, financial information that we collect. Otherwise, all financial information is stored by our payment processors, Authorize.net, and you are encouraged to review their privacy policy and contact them directly for responses to your questions.

The information we may collect through the Custom Campaigns includes:

  1. Personal Data
    Personally identifiable information, such as your name, address, email address and telephone number, and demographic information, such as your age, gender, hometown, and interests, that the winners only voluntarily give to us when they choose to participate in various activities related to the Campaigns, such as claiming their prize. That information is then given to our clients who decide to collect this information through their Custom Campaign. EZ Deals does not use this information after it is given to the client. The winners are under no obligation to provide us with personal information of any kind, however their refusal to do so may prevent them from using their digital coupon.
  2. Derivative Data
    Information our servers automatically collect when someone accesses the Campaign, such as their IP address, their browser type, their operating system, their access times, and the pages they have viewed directly before and after accessing the Campaign.
  3. Data from Contests, Giveaways and Surveys
    Personal and other information you may provide when entering contests or giveaways and/or responding to surveys.

WHY WE COLLECT INFORMATION

Having accurate information about you permits us to provide you with a smooth, efficient, and customized experience. Specifically, we may use information collected about you via the Site to:

  1. Administer sweepstakes, promotions, and contests.
  2. Market our products to you.
  3. Deliver, provide and repair products or services.
  4. Establish and maintain customer accounts and billing records.
  5. Contact you about our products and services and promote offers to you.
  6. Monitor website and campaign statistics.

DISCLOSURE OF YOUR INFORMATION
We do not publicly share your personal information.  However, we may share information we have collected about our clients in certain situations. Their information may be disclosed as follows:

  1. As required by Law or to Protect our rights
    If we believe the release of information about you is necessary to respond to legal process, to investigate or remedy potential violations of our policies, or to protect the rights, property, and safety of others, we may share your information as permitted or required by any applicable law, rule or regulation. This includes exchanging information with other entities for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
  2. Sale or Bankruptcy
    If we reorganize or sell all or a portion of our assets, undergo a merger, or are acquired by another entity, we may transfer the client’s (EZ Deals customer) information, but not the client’s customers’ (consumers/users) information, to the successor entity. If we go out of business or enter bankruptcy, the client’s (EZ Deals customer) information, but not the client’s customers’ (consumers/users) information would be an asset transferred or acquired by a third party.

THIRD-PARTY WEBSITES

The Site does not contain links to third-party websites and applications of interest, including advertisements and external services, which are not affiliated with us.

SECURITY OF YOUR INFORMATION
We use administrative, technical, and physical security measures to help protect your personal information. While we have taken reasonable steps to secure the personal information you provide to us, please be aware that despite our efforts, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable, and no method of data transmission can be guaranteed against any interception or other type of misuse. Any information disclosed online is vulnerable to interception and misuse by unauthorized parties.
Therefore, we cannot guarantee complete security if you provide personal information.

We store only very limited, if any, financial information that we collect. Otherwise, all financial information is stored by our payment processor, Authorize.net, and you are encouraged to review their privacy policy and contact them directly for responses to your questions. We do not store any social security numbers. We store the basic contact information of our clients in our CRM.
