We will use the contact information you have provided to contact you for administrative purposes, for customer service purposes, to notify you of activity within the REWARDS21 Service, to address intellectual property infringement, rights of privacy, or defamation issues, regarding User Submissions that you have submitted to the REWARDS21 Service, or to send you notifications regarding new services offered by REWARDS21 that we think you may find valuable.

REWARDS21 uses information in your profile or related to your activities on the REWARDS21 Service in order to personalize the application experience for you (such as remembering your information so that you will not have to re-enter it during your visit or the next time you use the REWARDS21 Service), and to understand and analyze the usage trends and preferences of our users, to improve the way the REWARDS21 Service works and looks, and to create new features and functionality.
REWARDS21 uses automatically collected technical information, “cookies” information, and any other information we collect from you during registration or at other times to: (a) provide customized third party advertisements, content, and information; (b) monitor and analyze the effectiveness of the REWARDS21 Service and third party marketing activities; (c) monitor aggregate site usage metrics such as total number of visitors and pages viewed; and (d) track your entries, submissions, and status in any promotions or other activities.
Visa Card Transactions and Your Data
- REWARDS21 will use your transaction data to confirm a qualifying purchase or return to match transactions to confirm whether you qualify for a Reward or an Offer.
- REWARDS21 may share transaction data with the Participating Merchant where a transaction occurred as needed for the Participating Merchant to confirm a specific transaction occurred or points should be awarded; for example, REWARDS21 may share the date and amount of your purchase and the last 4 digits of your card number so the Participating Merchant can verify your purchase with its records if there is a missing or disputed transaction.
- REWARDS21 may provide Participating Merchants or manufacturers aggregated and anonymized information relating specifically to enrolled card activity solely to allow our Participating Merchants to assess the results of their campaign.
- REWARDS21 and/or Visa may provide information in order to respond to a request from government authority or a payment organization involved in a transaction with you or a Participating Merchant.
REWARDS21 may ask Visa to send REWARDS21 a notification (so that REWARDS21 can send you a message) when Visa identifies a transaction at a merchant (including both Participating Merchants and non-participating merchants) that, based on the details of that purchase, suggests you may also be interested in an offer from a Participating Merchant. For example, if you make a purchase at a retail store that is not affiliated with a Participating Merchant or a Participating Merchant but is near a Participating Merchant, REWARDS21 may send you a message or special offer for a Participating Merchant that may be of interest to you. These messages and special offers may be delivered to you based on:
- the geographic location of the merchant where you use your registered VISA card to make a purchase when you are at a physical store;
- the type of merchant where you make a purchase with your registered VISA Card;
- purchases at specific Participating Merchants or their affiliated brands;
- time of day of your transaction(s); or
- the amount of your transaction(s).
For transactions at non-participating merchants, Visa will only notify REWARDS21 that you have made a purchase that matches the criteria set by REWARDS21; Visa does not share the details of your non-participating merchant transactions with REWARDS21. Visa only provides REWARDS21 with transaction details for your purchases and returns at Participating Merchants as described above.
Sharing Your Information with Third Parties
REWARDS21 is not in the business of selling your information, and we take your privacy very seriously. In the course of providing the REWARDS21 Service to you and other users, we make limited disclosures of your information to others for a variety of purposes.
The REWARDS21 Service may currently or in the future enable users to publish information and communicate in a variety of ways. Any personally identifiable information that you voluntarily choose to make available to others through use of the REWARDS21 Service, such as on a public profile page or in a comment, posting, or in other User Submissions, will be available for use without restriction to the recipients. Once you make your personal information available to others in this manner, REWARDS21 cannot control how it is collected, used, and disclosed by the recipients. If you choose to use features on the REWARDS21 Service that allow you to publish or syndicate information to third party services such as Facebook, use and disclosure of any information you choose to disclose in this manner will be subject to such third party’s privacy policies.
Although we may allow you to set privacy options that limit access to your User Submissions, please be aware that no security measures are perfect or impenetrable. We cannot control the actions of other users with whom you may choose to share your information. Therefore, we cannot and do not guarantee that User Submissions you post on the REWARDS21 Service will not be viewed by unauthorized persons. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained in the REWARDS21 Service.
REWARDS21 may also share automatically collected and other non-personally identifiable information in an aggregate form (such as user trends, application downloads, and demographic information) with a variety of third parties, including our affiliates, advertisers, publishers, and other current and prospective investors or business partners. This information may be used to assist such parties in understanding the usage, viewing, and demographic patterns for certain programs, content, services, advertisements, promotions, and/or functionality on the REWARDS21 Service.
In the event that the REWARDS21 Service links to certain third party content which requires access credentials (such as a name, user ID, or password) for access, we may provide the access credentials that you give to us to the operator or website owner of the third party content in order to facilitate and enable your access to that third party content.
Third Party Advertising
REWARDS21 does not provide any personally identifiable information to these third-party ad servers or ad networks without your consent or except as part of a specific program or feature for which you will have the ability to opt-in. However, please note that if an advertiser asks REWARDS21 to show an advertisement to a certain audience or audience segment and you respond to that advertisement, the advertiser or ad-server may conclude that you fit the description of the audience they were trying to reach.
The Site may contain links to other sites. Please be aware that Rewards21 has no control over and is 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 and every website that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by Rewards21.
REWARDS21 takes certain precautions to protect our users’ information and to limit the risk that it will be accessed without authorization, including use of certain industry standard technologies and practices. We cannot, however, ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to REWARDS21, and you do so at your own risk. If REWARDS21 learns of a security systems breach, then we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. REWARDS21 may post a notice through the REWARDS21 Service if a security breach occurs. Depending on where you live, you may have a legal right to receive notice of a security breach in writing.
