or "JOHNNY'S COUPONS") recognize the importance of protecting
the privacy of all information provided by users of our web sites, subscribers

We collect information from our website users, subscribers and customers.
we collect and how we use it to provide better services to our customers.
Registration and Ordering
When attending our trade shows, participating in our customer-sponsored
webcasts, using some of our websites and signing up for certain selected
services (such as free subscriptions), users must first register. During
registration, users are required to give their contact information (such
as name, e-mail address, mailing address and phone number). We also may
collect demographic information (such as job title and purchasing responsibilities,
company information and professional certification). For internal purposes,
we use this information to communicate with users and provide requested
services, and, for our website visitors, to provide a more personalized
experience on our sites. We use aggregate demographic information about
our audience to improve our service, for marketing purposes and/or industry
Many of our products and services are free to subscribers who meet certain
demographic criteria. Independent auditors may need to certify the eligibility
of these subscribers. In order to do that, we may collect unique identifiers
that we disclose to the auditors strictly for industry reporting and audit
If users wish to subscribe to our e-mail newsletters, we ask for contact
information (such as name, e-mail address and, occasionally, demographic
information). We use this information in the same manner as we use contact
information in the registration and ordering process described above.
Recipients of our newsletters can unsubscribe using the instructions listed
at the end of the e-mail newsletter.
Surveys and Contests
From time to time we invite users to provide information via surveys
or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely
voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether to disclose requested
contact information (such as name and mailing address) and demographic
information (such as Postal Code or job title). In addition to other uses
set forth in this policy, contact information collected in connection
with surveys and contests is used to notify the winners and award prizes,
to monitor or improve the use and satisfaction of the site, and may be
shared with sponsors of such surveys or contests.
If users elect to use our referral service for informing a friend about
our sites and services, we may ask them for the friend's name, job title
and e-mail address. JOHNNY'S COUPONS will store and use this information
to send the friend an invitation. This information may also be used to
provide information about our company and related products and services.
Communications with Us
We have features where users can submit information to us (such as our
feedback forms). Requests for service, support or information may be forwarded
as needed to best respond to a specific request. We may retain e-mails
and other information sent to us for our internal administrative purposes,
and to help us to serve customers better.
Communications from Us: Service Updates, Special Offers
In order to best serve our customers, we may send updates that contain
important information about our sites and services. For example, we send
new members a welcoming message, and verify password and username for
our password-protected sites. We may also communicate with a user to provide
requested services and for account-related issues via e-mail, phone or
We offer our users the option to receive information about our company,
related products, services and special deals. Users can choose not to
receive these communications, as set forth in our Permission section below.
Automatic Data Collection
Our web sites have features that automatically collect information from
users, to deliver content specific to users' interests and to honour their
preferences. This information assists us in creating sites that will serve
the needs of our users.
For our internal purposes, we gather date, time, browser type, screen
resolution navigation history and IP address of all visitors to our site.
This information does not contain anything that can identify users personally.
We use this information for our internal security audit log, trend analysis
and system administration, and to gather broad demographic information
about our user base for aggregate use.
We may combine demographic information supplied by a subscriber at registration
with site usage data to provide general profiles, in aggregate non-personally
identifiable form, about our users and their preferences in the content
of the site and advertising. We may share this composite information with
our advertisers and business affiliates to help them better understand
WITH WHOM YOUR INFORMATION IS SHARED
Other than as set forth above, we do not share personally identifiable
information with other companies; apart from those acting as our agents
in providing our product(s)/service(s), and which agree to use it only
for that purpose and to keep the information secure and confidential.
Also, our parent, subsidiary and affiliate companies, entities into which
our company may be merged, or entities to which any of our assets, products,
sites or operations may be transferred, will be able to use personal information.
We will also disclose information we maintain when required to do so by
law, for example, in response to a court order or a subpoena or other
legal obligation, in response to a law enforcement agency's request, or
in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information
is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone
who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally
or unintentionally) our rights or property.
We may share aggregate information, which is not personally identifiable,
with others. This information may include usage and demographic data,
but it will not include personal information.
CORRECTION/UPDATING PERSONAL INFORMATION
If a user's personally identifiable information changes (such as postal
code), or if a user no longer desires our product(s)/service(s), we provide
a way to correct or update that user's personal data. The user should
contact Customer Support for the applicable product or service.
Our users are given the opportunity to choose whether to receive information
from our affiliates and us not directly related to the registered services.
Users also have the opportunity to choose whether to have personal information
shared with third parties for marketing purposes. Instructions for how
to exercise this choice are contained in e-mails sent by us, on our product
websites and in each of our publications. In addition, users can go to
our Feedback page at http://www.johnnyscoupons.com/contact to change their
options. Please note that we will endeavour to implement requests within
a reasonable time, although for a time users may continue to receive mailings,
etc., transmitted based on information released prior to the implementation
of the request. Users will continue to receive information directly related
to their registered services, so they always are kept informed.
We use reasonable precautions to protect our users' personal information
and to store it securely. Sensitive information that is transmitted to
us online (such as credit card number) is encrypted and is transmitted
to us securely (via PayPal). In addition, access to all of our users'
information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted.
Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for
example, a billing clerk or a customer service representative) are granted
access to personally identifiable information.
We will provide all services requiring the acquiring of personally identifiable
information as opt-in services. This means that we must ask your permission
direct or indirect before use of information takes place.
Our web sites contain links to other sites. We are not responsible for
the privacy practices or content of such other sites. We encourage our
users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements
of each web site to which we may link that may collect personally identifiable
The privacy of children is important to us. Your children should always
ask you for permission before sending personal information to JOHNNY'S
COUPONS, or to anyone else. Any personal information we gather from children
under the age of 13 would be used solely for demographic purposes. We
will not knowingly send direct mailings, including email or other correspondence
to anyone who indicates that they are younger than 13 years.
NOTIFICATION and CHANGES
so our users are aware of what information we collect, how we use it and
under which circumstances, if any, we disclose it. Users should check
this policy frequently to keep abreast of any changes.
