Please read this Statement carefully as it affects your rights and liabilities under the law. If you disagree with the way we collect and process personal information, please do not use this website.

Scope of this Policy
This policy applies to this website and regulates the processing of information relating to you and grants both of us various rights with respect to your personal data.  It describes what type of information we collect; how we use that information and to whom we can provide that information.  It also informs you of how to notify us to stop using your information. We are located in the United States.  You may be located in a country that has laws which are more restrictive about the collection and use of your personal information.  However, by using our website, you agree to waive the more restrictive laws and agree to be governed by the laws of the United States.

Information We Collect and Retain
Consumer Provided Information is information that you provide during registration on our website to receive our weekly newsletters or deal alerts.  As such, we collect your email address when you choose to provide it to us.  

Behavioral information is information pertaining to how you use our website, the areas of our website that you visit, what coupons you access, and information about your computer hardware and software including your IP address, geographic location, browser preference, operating system type, times that you access the internet and other websites you visit before and after visiting our website. 

No Information Collected from Children.  We will never knowingly collect any Personal Information from children under the age of 13.  If we obtain actual knowledge that we have collected Personal Information about a child under the age of 13, that information will be immediately deleted from its database.  Because we do not collect such information, we have no such information to use or to disclose to third parties.

Cookies, Web Beacons, and Java Script
Cookies: “Cookies” are a feature in your browser software. If enabled, cookies store small amounts of data on your computer about actions you take on the pages of our website. Cookies assist us in tracking which of our features you visit most often and what content you viewed on past visits. When you visit this website again, cookies allow us to customize our content according to your preferences. We may use cookies to: keep track of the number of return visits; accumulate and aggregate, statistical information generally pertaining to our website and deliver specific content to you based on your past viewing history. You can disable cookies, although our website may not function properly for you. Your browser preferences can be modified to accept or reject all cookies, or request a notification when a cookie is set. You may read more about cookies at http://cookiecentral.com. In order to use all of the features and functionality of our website, you need to accept cookies.

We predominately use “session” cookies, which are not permanently stored on your hard drive. Session cookies usually expire after two hours of inactivity or when you close your browser. Session cookies allow us to keep track of this data until you have completed your search or registration.

We may use “persistent” cookies to ensure that we do not show you pages that you have already seen and to personalize your website experience and save you time. Persistent Cookies enable us to recognize whether you have responded to a registration or have already been presented with an advertisement or information placed on our website so that we do not show you the same information again the next time you visit our website. The “persistent” cookies we use will remain on your computer after you have left our website and will expire when you log out of the website or 60 days after your last visit for security cookies, or two years after your last visit for advertisement cookies.

Removing Cookies:  You have the ability to accept, decline or move cookies at any time by modifying your browser settings. Please see http://cookiecentral.com.
Web Beacons:    We also use electronic images known as Web beacons (sometimes called single-pixel gifs, clear gifs or action tags) that allow us to collect certain information about your visit to our website, measure and improve the effectiveness of advertisements, and track delivery of advertising. Web beacons collect only a limited set of information including a cookie number, time and date of page view, and a description of the page on which the Web beacon resides. We may also use Web beacons in email messages sent to individuals listed in our database.

Disabling Web Beacons.  Because Web beacons are the same as any other content request, you cannot opt out or refuse them. However, they can be rendered ineffective by either opting out of cookies or changing the cookie setup in your browser.
JavaScript: We may also use JavaScript. JavaScript is a computer language that enhances the functionality of websites, particularly in respect to pictures. We use it to analyze and improve our website’s functions.

Disabling JavaScript:  You may deactivate JavaScript via your browser settings or activate it the same way. If you disable JavaScript you will not be able to use some of the functions of our website.

IP Addresses.  Your Internet Protocol ("IP") is a unique Internet "address" which is assigned to you by your Internet Service Provider ("ISP"). We automatically track your IP Address. We may use this information to do internal research on our users' demographics, interests, and behavior to better understand, protect and serve you. This information may include the URL that you just came from (whether this URL is on the website or not), which URL you go to next (whether this URL is on the website or not), your computer browser information, and your IP address. While the IP address does not identify an individual by name, it may, with the cooperation of the ISP, be used to locate and identify an individual using the Internet. Your IP address can, however, reveal what geographic area you are connecting from, or which ISP you are using. Finally, other websites you visit have IP addresses, and we may collect the IP addresses of those websites and their pages.

DoubleClick Cookie. Google, as a third party vendor, uses cookies to serve ads on our Site. Google’s use of the DoubleClick cookie enables it and its partners to serve ads to our users based on their visit to our Site or other sites on the Internet.

You may opt out of the use of the DoubleClick Cookie for interest-based advertising by visiting the Google Ads Settings page.

Google Analytics. Couponism, Inc. uses Remarketing with Google Analytics to advertise on third party sites to you after you visited our Site. We and our third party vendors, like Google, use first party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookie) and third party cookies (such as the DoubleClick cookie) to inform, optimize and serve ads based on your past visits to our Site.

You can opt-out of Google Analytics for Display Advertising and customize the Google Display Network ads by visiting the Google Ads Settings page. Google also recommends installing the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on for your browser. Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on provides visitors with the ability to prevent their data from being collected and used by Google Analytics.

Communications
. We may use your Personal Information to contact you with newsletters, marketing or promotional materials and other information that may be of interest to you.

Security. The security of your Personal Information is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

Links To Other Sites. Our Site may contain links to other sites that are not operated by us. If you click on a third party link, you will be directed to that third party’s site. We strongly advise you to review the Privacy Policy of every site you visit.
