We work with partners and merchants to make Price Points and other offers available to you as a Price.com member that are often better than those that are available to the general public. In some cases your eligibility for some of these offers is based in whole or in part upon data we or our partners and merchant collect. When Price.com user provided or automatically collected information is used for offer qualification some personally identifying information may be transferred to the partner or merchant if required by the applicable partner or merchant. In some cases an action is required by you in order to claim an offer such as by clicking on a “Buy Now” or “Unlock Deal” button presented in our software. Claiming an offer does not guarantee it will be available when you check out as there may be additional requirements from our merchant partner to successfully redeem an offer, including tracking your purchase through to delivery. When you claim an offer we will make a commercially reasonable effort to ensure that the offer remains available but do not make any specific guarantees as we and our merchant partners rely on numerous third party systems employing a mix of technologies including cookies to track results. Your use of other software including ad blockers or other affiliate or offer programs provided by other third parties can also interfere with this tracking in which case you may no longer be eligible for the offer. If you encounter problems redeeming an offer please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will try to help resolve your problem.
We collect some information on an anonymous basis. We also may anonymize the personal information we collect about you.
