Your Stomp has created this statement in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to privacy. We allow our users to control the amount of personal information they provide to us. Your Stomp hopes that users will feel comfortable providing this information to us, because this information allows us to tailor our promotional offers to each member's particular interests. However, we recognize that some members will prefer not to provide certain requested information, so we've designed Your Stomp with the members' personal preferences in mind.
What Information We Collect/How We Use It
Membership Registration. Our membership registration requires users to provide first name, e-mail address, zip code, gender, date of birth and shopping interests in order to register for the Your Stomp service. Users may provide additional demographic information (i.e. income, marital status, and number of children). The additional information is not required to become a member, but many members choose to supply the information so that they receive offers/newsletters that match their interests and demographics. Your Stomp uses the information in three ways:
- We send promotions with targeted promotional email offers based on users' interests to members who elect to receive such promotions
- We contact users for feedback and surveys
- We provide members with a personalized home page based on their "home" market.
Profile Data. We use profile data collected through the registration process described above and through voluntary actions of registered users of the Your Stomp service, consisting of demographic information and shopping preferences, to provide members with a personalized experience and promotions. This information allows us to provide users with specific content based on indicated interests and preferences. Using Your Stomp services does not require membership, and users may provide as much or as little information as they choose. However, the omission of certain information may limit the value of the Your Stomp experience for the user.
Additionally, Your Stomp tracks specific activity by its members on the Your Stomp site and provides promotional and personalized content based on that activity. Such activity may include Your Stomp purchases, Prize Closet redemptions and coupon activities, which along with your stated shopping preferences, are used to optimize the Your Stomp site and personalize offers and promotions based on your interests.
Your Stomp acts as a consolidator of advertiser information and promotional offers. Geographic, demographic, activity-based and shopping preference information across member profiles may be summarized on an aggregate basis for advertisers on Your Stomp. This helps prospective sponsors understand the viewership they will reach. Aggregate information includes such things as summarized percent membership by age range, gender, income, marital status, number of children, but does not include personally identifiable information.
Purchase Information. When you make a purchase from Your Stomp, we collect information that you volunteer such as your name, postal address, phone number and e-mail address and other information required to process your order. The Your Stomp website makes use of Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology to encrypt all credit card and billing information. Your computer must be SSL-enabled to ensure secure transfer of your credit card information. We do not store your credit card number after your order has been completed. You will be asked to re-enter your credit card every time you make a purchase. During the purchase process you may be asked if you wish to elect to receive promotional materials from Your Stomp. You may remove yourself from the list at any time by utilizing the removal link or by contacting Your Stomp as detailed in the Opt-out section below.
Surveys & Contests. Both during the registration process and from time-to-time thereafter our service requests information from users via contests and surveys, including asking new members to complete a survey containing profile information regarding their specific interests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. Information requested typically includes contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code, age level). Information requested in surveys or polls may be related to shopping behavior and/or other interests of the member. Contact information will be used to notify the winners and award prizes. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of our service. The survey information may also be used to determine which offers will be served to a particular member.
Reports. We provide reports to the companies with which we do business. These reports include aggregate information about our users. The information in these reports will not identify individual members. No information is contained in the reports that would allow companies to contact members directly.
Send-to-a-Friend Program. Participants in the Send to a Friend Program, provide us with contact information (e-mail address) and first name for friends and family to whom they wish to send an exclusive promotional offer. By providing such information, the referring participant certifies that they have received permission from the referred person to disclose such contact information and that the referred person has given their permission to receive e-mail communications from Your Stomp. We treat referral information with the same confidentiality as member information. Your Stomp sends the referred person an e-mail with the promotional offer. The person referred to us only becomes enrolled if they choose to visit our site and enter their information. The referred person may also use the instructions included in the e-mail to remove their information from our referral systems.
Message Center. The Your Stomp Message Center is a site feature used to inform members of internet-based promotions, offers and notices. Members may access the Message Center by logging in to their account at Your Stomp. Message content is based on preferences indicated at initial member registration as well as activity-based actions. Members may choose to be notified by email of the posting of new messages in the Message Center or may opt-out of Message Center email notification. Except as otherwise stated, Your Stomp will not knowingly share your individual information with third parties without your authorization or consent.
