This Privacy Statement describes our policies on the collection, use, and disclosure of information about you in connection with your use of our Site. When you use the Site, you consent to our collection, use, and disclosure of information about you as described in this Privacy Statement. If you do not agree with the practices described in this Privacy Statement, please do not provide us with your Personal Information or interact with the Site.
We will routinely update this Privacy Statement to clarify our practices and to reflect new or different privacy practices, such as when we add new services, functionality or features to the Site. If we make any material changes we will notify you by email (sent to the email address specified in your account) or by means of notice on the Site prior to the change becoming effective.
The Privacy Statement is organized as follows:
1. Information We Collect and How We Use It
We may store the information, including Personal Information and Non-Identifying Information, you submit to or through the Site, as well as information we collect in connection with your use of the Site.
We use the information to fulfill your requests, provide the Site’s functionality, improve the Site’s quality, personalize your experience, track usage of the Site, provide feedback to Merchants that are listed on the Site, display relevant advertising, provide customer support, message you, back up our systems and allow for disaster recovery, enhance the security of the Site, and comply with legal obligations.
Among the information we collect, please note:
By transacting on the Site, you consent and agree to information usage and sharing as set forth above, and any other use and sharing deemed by BrightStreet, which in its sole and absolute discretion may be in the best interests of BrightStreet.
It may be possible to disable some (but not all) Cookies through your device or browser settings, but doing so may affect your ability to use the Site. The method for disabling cookies may vary by device and browser, but can usually be found in preferences or security settings.
3. Third Parties
Service Providers: We outsource some of BrightStreet’s functions to third-party providers, such as technical and customer support, tracking and reporting functions, quality assurance testing, and other services. We may share information from or about you with these third-party providers so that they can perform their services or complete your requests.
Aggregate Information: We may share user information in the aggregate with third parties, such as, without limitation, advertisers and Merchants. Except as otherwise set forth herein, we reserve the right to share such information to the fullest extent permitted under applicable laws.
Business Transfers: We may share information from or about you with subsidiaries, joint ventures, or other companies under common control, in which case we will require them to honor this Privacy Statement. If another company acquires BrightStreet or all or substantially all of our assets, that company will possess the same information, and will assume the rights and obligations with respect to that information as described in this Privacy Statement.
Merchants: We may share information from or about you (such as your age and gender) and your use of the Site (such as which Merchant Offerings you redeem or share with friends) with Merchants on BrightStreet. You may adjust your settings to increase or decrease the amount of information we share. You can view these settings and find more details about what information may be shared here.
Investigations: We may investigate and disclose Personal Information from or about you if we have a good faith belief that such investigation or disclosure is (a) reasonably necessary to comply with legal process and law enforcement instructions and orders, such as a search warrant, subpoena, statute, judicial proceeding, or other legal process served on us; (b) helpful to prevent, investigate, or identify possible wrongdoing in connection with the Site; or (c) protect our rights, reputation, property, or that of our users, affiliates, or the public.
Links: The Site may contain links to unaffiliated third party websites. Except as set forth herein, we do not share your personal information with them, and are not responsible for their privacy practices. We suggest you read the privacy policies on all such third party websites.
4. Security of Personal Information
We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the Personal Information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. However, no method of transmission over the Internet or via mobile device, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its security.
5. Accessing and Correcting Personal Information
You can access, update, and delete information you provided to us in your profile by logging into your account or sending us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you want to close your BrightStreet account or have other questions or requests, please contact us. While we are ready to assist you in managing or closing your account, we cannot always delete records of past interactions and transactions. For example, we are required to retain records relating to previous redemptions of Merchant Offerings on the Site for reporting and compliance reasons.
We will retain your Personal Information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you services and to maintain a record of your transactions for reporting purposes. If you wish to cancel your account or request that we no longer use your Personal Information to provide you services contact us at email@example.com. We will retain and use your Personal Information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
6. Merchant Information
BrightStreet may aggregate and store information, including, without limitation, the number of users who have been exposed to or redeemed certain Merchant Offerings through the Site, as well as information we collect in connection with Merchant Offerings made available through the Site. We use Merchant information to, inter alia, track usage of the Site and Merchant Performance, provide feedback to Merchants that are listed on the Site, provide Merchant performance data to third parties and BrightStreet’s affiliates, and enhance the services made available through the Site.
7. Privacy Practices of Third Parties
This Privacy Statement only addresses the use and disclosure of information by BrightStreet through your interaction with the Site. Other websites that may be accessible through links from the Site may have their own privacy statements and personal information collection, use, and disclosure practices. Our Merchants may also have their own privacy statements. We encourage you to familiarize yourself with the privacy statements provided by these other parties prior to providing them with information or taking advantage of a sponsored offer or promotion.

By using BrightStreet, you represent that you are at least eighteen years old and understand that you must be at least eighteen years old in order to create an account and redeem or share Merchant Offerings advertised through the Site.
