Contests/Promotions -- We run contests in which we ask visitors for contact information (like their e-mail address). We use contact data from our contests to send users confirmation of having successfully entered the contest, to notify the winners of contests, and send information about our company and promotional material on behalf of our partners.

2. How We Use and Disclose Your Information

We use your information to deliver personalized services, content, discounts and advertisements to enhance your experience with us. For example, we may send you an e-mail with a special offer or discount from one of our affiliates, divisions or participating sponsors on Spring Break travel because you selected "travel" as an area of interest under your personal profile when you registered to use a site on the Network. We do not provide your personally identifiable information to third parties or mass marketers without your consent. For example, we will not provide another company your name or e-mail address without your consent. Unless you consent to the disclosure of your personally identifiable information, only we and our affiliates, our technical consultants, third party auditors and other third parties who make our site available, enhance its functionality, or provide associated services and/or who deal with you in delivering content, samples, products, and gifts and prizes, have access to this information, and we require them to agree that they are covered by this policy. Please note that we do reserve the right to transfer your personally identifiable information and other information that you have provided to us to our successors in business and purchasers of our site assets. We reserve the right, without disclosing your personally identifiable information to third parties, to use the information you provide to offer you additional SMARANA SAVERS CLUB cards or third party products and services that we think will be of interest to you. If you respond to such an offer and contact a third party directly, that third party's privacy policy will apply to any information you provide and/or that is collected by such third party and we are not responsible for that party's use of your information. Similarly, as noted above, information submitted in conjunction with an offer made by a Co-Branded Partner may be shared with the Co-Branded Partner, in which case the Co-Branded Partners' use of such information will be governed by the privacy policy of that particular Co-Branded Partner and we are not responsible for that party's use of your information. In addition, on occasion, we may ask for your consent to share particular data with a third party. This is always at your option and is not required. We also do disclose aggregated data to our advertisers and Co-Branded Partners and other third parties to generate reports, marketing and technical research and for related business purposes. Our advertisers allow us to provide our service to you. In return, they need to know how to effectively place their ads to potential customers. For example, we tell advertisers how many people saw or clicked on an ad and additionally, how many people saw or clicked on ads in different portions of our service. Where available, we may offer additional information about viewer characteristics. However, this does not include personally identifiable information about you or your online usage patterns. You have the option to subscribe to receive various e-mail, mail and/or mobile phone updates when you register on certain sites on our Network. We will use these updates to provide you with additional discounts, special offers, site upgrades, new features, events, promotions, and much more. You have the option to opt out of receiving mobile phone communications by e-mailing Card Services or changing the preferences on your account. We participate in programs where certain companies ("Participating Companies") direct users to our Network or provide certain incentives or benefits to our users.

For example, if you come to a site on our Network as a referral from an online affiliate program, we may have a contractual obligation to make payments to and send certain corresponding information to the affiliate site that linked you to us and to a separate entity, if any, that administers the affiliate program. Similarly, when you use your SMARANA SAVERS CLUB card at any merchant or sponsor, we may provide any or all of your information to that merchant or sponsor.
