Privacy Policy

Scope

This Privacy Policy describes Drop Loyalty Inc.’s (“Drop”) collection, use, disclosure, and protection of your personal information collected or provided through our website (“Site”) and how we use personal information in connection with our services offered through the Site (“Services”).

“Personal information” is information about an identifiable individual. Personal information does not include information that is anonymous or aggregated, or is no longer identifiable to a specific person.

By using our Site, Services, or otherwise providing us your personal information, you agree to this Privacy Policy and agree to be bound and abide by our Terms of Service found here. If you do not agree with any term in this Privacy Policy, please do not provide us your personal information or use our Site or Services.

Our Site and Services are not intended for individuals under the age of majority. We do not knowingly collect personal information from such individuals.

Information we collect

We may collect the following categories of personal information in connection with your use of our Site and Services, including but not limited to:

  • Registration information: When you register for the Services, you will be asked for basic registration information, such as an email address and password.
  • Identification information: You may also be asked to provide identification information upon registration, including your first and last name, gender and date of birth.
  • Third party credentials: You may also provide Drop with certain credentials for third party payment services ("Third Party Sites") when you authorize us to connect to them on your behalf.
  • Information from Third Party Sites: When you agree to have Drop connect to any Third Party Sites on your behalf, in order to provide you with personalized Drop rewards, we will collect transaction-level data from the Third Party Sites via our Services. For example, if you register your chequing account with us, we will collect the transaction details from your chequing account in order to personalize rewards and determine for which transactions you are eligible to receive Drop points.
  • Contests and surveys: From time to time, you may be offered an opportunity to participate in a contest, survey, or other promotion. We may collect or you may submit information in connection with one of these promotions, such as your first and last name, contact information and any other required information.
  • Technical and navigational information: We may collect information about your interaction with our Site or Services such as computer browser type, pages visited, average time spent on our Site or Services, IP address, unique identifier of the device, operating system version and app version.
  • Location information: If you choose to use a location enabled aspect of the Services, we may collect location information from your device and will notify you of this collection. You may control or disable the sharing of location information via your device setting and/or the Services.
  • Other information: We may request or receive other personal information such as feedback, questions, comments, suggestions, or ideas to provide you with other benefits or to improve upon the Services. In such instances, you will be given the opportunity to provide or decline that information.

How we use the information we collect

We use your personal information for the purposes of:

  • issuing the promised rewards based on your spending with Drop partners;
  • offering and improving the Site and the Services;
  • responding to your inquiries about our Site and Services;
  • analyzing usage of our Site and Services;
  • alerting you to software compatibility issues;
  • delivering any administrative notices or alerts and communications relevant to your use of the Services;
  • offering you other products, programs, or services that we believe may be of interest;
  • performing market research, project planning, product development, troubleshooting problems, analysis of user behavior, marketing and promotions;
  • enforcing our Terms of Services and as otherwise set forth in this Privacy Policy; and
  • a transaction in connection with a merger, sale, of substantially all of our assets, or a corporate reorganization.

In order to allow you to use our Site or Services, we may be required to verify your identity. To do so and with your consent, we may, directly or through third parties, use information you provide and verify it against third party databases or through other sources. We may use your information to verify your identity in the event you contact us for assistance with the Site or Services. We may also use your information to pre-fill form fields on the Services for your convenience.

When you use the mobile application or mobile versions of our Site, we may collect the unique device identifier assigned to that device by phone makers, carriers, or makers of the operating system (the "Device ID"). Device IDs allow app developers, advertisers, and others to uniquely identify your device for purposes of storing application preferences and other data.

We may use your Device ID to contact you directly through push notifications. Additionally, we may use Device IDs to monitor suspicious activity. For example, if we detect that a single account on a Site is being accessed from multiple devices, as determined by tracking the Device IDs that access an account, we may contact the user to ensure that such access has been authorized by the user.

Information we process may be transferred to, stored, and processed in, the United States, Canada, or any other country in which Drop or its affiliates, subsidiaries, or service providers maintain operations. By using and providing information to us through the Site and Services, you agree and consent to the transfer, storage, and processing of your information to any such country in order to provide the Site and Services.

How we disclose personal information

We will not, without your permission, sell, publish, or share your personal information to third parties for their marketing purposes.

We may share your personal information with our affiliates and subsidiaries for the purposes of providing the Services. In connection with the delivery to you of any Drop Rewards that you may redeem, we may share some of your personal information with third parties in order to process the transaction you have requested.

We may share your personal information with third party service providers to enable them to assist in fulfilling the requests you make or the transactions you conduct via the Site, including the operation of certain Site functions and the Services. Third parties acting on our behalf that are given access to your personal information are contractually obligated to abide by our privacy practices.

Drop and its service providers, may provide your personal information in response to a search warrant or other legally valid inquiry or order, or to an investigative body in the case of a breach of an agreement or contravention of law, or as otherwise required or permitted by applicable Canadian, US or other law. We may also disclose personal information where necessary for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims and to investigate or prevent actual or suspect loss or harm to persons or property.

We may transfer any information we have about you as an asset in connection with a merger or sale (including transfers made as part of insolvency or bankruptcy proceedings) involving all or part of Drop or as part of a corporate reorganization or sale or other change in corporate control.

How we protect the information we collect

We take the security of your personal information seriously. We use technical, physical and administrative safeguards, such as, but not limited to, firewalls, encryption techniques and authentication procedures to maintain the security of your personal information. Unfortunately, no collection or transmission of information over the Internet or other publicly accessible communications networks can be guaranteed to be 100% secure, and therefore, we cannot warrant the security of any such information. More information on how we protect your information can be found on the Drop security page.

Your online access may be protected with a password you select. We strongly recommend that you do not disclose your password to anyone. We will never ask you for your password in any unsolicited communication (such as letters, phone calls or email messages).

We have personal information retention processes designed to retain personal information of our customers for no longer than necessary for the purposes stated above or to otherwise meet legal requirements.

Please note that certain Service-related messages that we send are necessary for the proper functioning and use of the Services and you may not have the ability to opt-out of those messages.

Third party offers, advertisements, and data collection

We may offer a number of separate products and services offered by third parties advertised to you on our Site and through the Services. These third party offers may be complementary to your use of the Services and may be personalized based on information you provide to us, we have collected about you, queries made through the Services, or other information. If you choose to use these separate products and services, provide information to the third party, or allow the third party to otherwise collect information about you, then their use of your information is subject to the applicable third party’s privacy policy and terms of service. You should review the practices of the third party before deciding to use their service or provide them with any information.

As user of our Site and Services, you grant one of our service providers, Plaid, the right, power, and authority to access and transmit your data as reasonably necessary for Plaid to provide the Services. In addition, you acknowledge and agree that your personal information will be treated by Plaid in accordance with their privacy policy. You furthermore expressly grant Plaid the right, power and authority to (acting on your behalf) access and transmit your personal information as reasonably necessary for Plaid to provide the Service to you and Drop.

We may use third party service providers to help us analyze certain online activities. For example, these service providers may help us measure the performance of our online promotions or analyze Services activity. We may permit these service providers to use cookies and similar technologies to perform these services. For example, we use a service provider such as Google Analytics on parts of the Site or Services to determine interest and other data to better serve our customers. If you prefer to not have your data used by this service provider you may visit the Google Analytics opt-out page.
