We collect and combine personally identifiable information ("PII") and non-personally identifiable information ("Non-PII") through various sources, including those discussed below. For your reference, PII is data collected with an intention to specifically identify, contact or locate a person, including but not limited to name, address, telephone number, or e-mail address. Conversely, Non-PII is data that is not used to specifically identify, contact or locate an individual, including but not limited to zip code, gender, age, or IP address.

Application Information

You must apply to join the Lead Generation Network. On the Member application, you may be asked to provide the following information: (1) website information, including but not limited to title, URL, privacy policy, type of website, number of daily page views, category of website, content language, whether the website is incentivized, website description, and keywords; (2) contact information, including but not limited to name, job title, telephone number, fax number, e-mail address, and mailing address; (3) payment information, including payee name, address, telephone number, and type, tax ID, social security number, and minimum payment amount; and (4) account information, including but not limited to account name and password. After you have submitted your application, Company may request that you submit additional information to verify your identity or account, including but not limited to your driver’s license and social security card.

Automatic Information/Digital Identifiers

Company uses "cookies," which are unique alphanumeric identifiers that store information on your computer, to track transactions, simplify Member login and to facilitate secure navigation through the password protected areas of the website. If you choose, there are utilities available for purchase from independent software providers to install on your computer as well as tools/preferences you can choose through most web browsers to make website visits anonymous. Members who choose to reject all cookies may have difficulty navigating the password protected areas of the website depending on the nature of their connection (dynamic IP, proxy server, etc.).

We also collect information through our web server applications. This information includes your Internet Protocol or "IP" address, date/time stamp, browser type, and referring URL.

Additionally, we may use pixel tracking technology to track the completion of transactions with us or our advertisers, the source information for those transactions, and your IP address, date/time stamp, browser type, and referring URL.

Further, you may be asked to provide all IP addresses that you will use to submit consumer leads so they can be white listed by Company.

Consumer Lead Information

We collect consumer "lead" information that is submitted by Members who run offers through the Lead Generation Network. A consumer lead may be comprised of a consumer’s: IP address, e-mail address, name, mailing address, telephone number, date of birth, gender, and payment information; information about a consumer’s background, interests, health, education, career goals, and shopping preferences; and any other personal information or unique preference information the consumer provided to the Member. We may require Members to submit a referring URL and/or sub-affiliate identifier with each lead, along with a date/time stamp.

Tax Forms

We may be required to create, collect, maintain, and submit certain information required by the government, such as IRS Forms W-8, W-9 and 1099.

INFORMATION USE

We may use the collected PII and Non-PII for any legally permissible purpose in our sole discretion, including but not limited to: verify your application, establish your account, service your account, deliver media, provide suppression or unsubscribe information or services, calculate and make payments, contact you for sales or inventory acquisition purposes, resolve disputes, and to defend Company, its advertisers or consumers.

SMS

SMS, Wireless and Other Mobile Offerings: Some of the services that we provide will result in sending an SMS, wireless or other mobile offering to your cell phone. These should be obvious in the context of the offering at the time you sign up. By signing up, you are agreeing to receive these mobile offerings. You understand that your wireless carrier's standard rates apply to these messages. To unsubscribe or discontinue SMS messages, send "STOP", "END", "QUIT" to the SMS text message you have received. This process impacts only the future delivery of the particular SMS message offering, so you must send that message for each offering. This will not affect offerings sent on behalf of third parties.

IVR

Your acceptance of the terms and conditions of this website constitutes your express written consent to receive telemarketing calls from third-party marketers, including by means of a pre-recorded message and automated voice dialing. Your consent will be effective regardless of whether the number you have provided: (a) is a home, business, or cell phone line; and/or (b) is or will be registered on any state or federal Do-Not-Call (DNC) list, and shall remain in effect until you revoke your consent by contacting us.

When you access your account or transmit data to us, that information is stored on servers that we have taken steps to protect from unauthorized access or intrusion.

You acknowledge and assume this risk when communicating with Company, its partners and affiliates.
