1. Personal Information
When you sign up to become a Registered User or enter any promotion or sweepstakes, you will be required to provide us with personal information about yourself (collectively, the "Personal Information"). Such Personal Information for Registered Users includes your name, e-mail address, phone number, date of birth (must be 17 years or older to participate), and zip code. We do not collect any Personal Information from you when you use the Service unless you provide us with the Personal Information voluntarily. Please note, we and/or our service providers will use your phone number only to: (i) access and verify your account, in cases where you have lost or forgotten your member card, (ii) text you a link to create your initial member account, and (iii) to text you marketing e-mails, but only in cases where you have affirmatively opted-in to receive such text messages.
2. Billing Information
In order to make purchases on the Small Shops United platform, you will be required to provide certain information in addition to the Personal Information noted above. Such information may include a debit card number, credit card number, billing address, and similar information (collectively, the "Billing Information).
3. Geolocational Information
In order to provide the Service while you are using a Mobile Device, we automatically collect geolocational information from your Mobile Device, your wireless carrier, or certain third-party service providers ("Geolocational Information"). Collection of such Geolocational Information occurs only when the Service is running on your Mobile Device. You may decline to allow us to collect such Geolocational Information, in which case Small Shops United will not be able to provide certain services to you. Because your Geolocational Information is subject to abuse by others, please be sure to manage your Mobile Device and privacy preferences on the Service on an ongoing basis.
4. Other Information
In addition to the Personal Information noted above that you voluntarily provide to us and the Geolocational Information that we automatically collect, we may collect additional information (collectively, the "Other Information"). Such Other Information may include:
If you have registered for the Service, you may access, review, and make changes to your Personal Information, Billing Information, and Other Information by following the instructions found on the applicable Platform. In addition, you may manage your receipt of marketing and non-transactional communications by clicking on the "unsubscribe" link located on the bottom of any Small Shops United marketing email. Registered Users cannot opt out of receiving transactional e-mails related to their account. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to process such requests in a timely manner. You should be aware, however, that it is not always possible to completely remove or modify information in our subscription databases.
We use the Personal Information, the Billing Information, the Geolocational Information, and the Other Information to provide you the Service, solicit your feedback, inform you about our products and services and those of our third-party marketing partners, to administer our rewards and promotional programs, and to improve our Service to you. Also, we may share Personal Information, the Billing Information, Geolocational Information, and/or Other Information as described below.
We take commercially reasonable steps to protect the Personal Information, the Geolocational Information, and the Other Information from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. We use industry-standard SSL ("Secure Socket Layer") encryption technology, a secure server, and other physical and procedural safeguards to protect the security of such information. Please understand, however, that no security system is impenetrable. We cannot guarantee the security of our databases, nor can we guarantee that the information you supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted to and from us over the Internet. In particular, e-mail sent to or from the Platforms may not be secure, and you should therefore take special care in deciding what information you send to us via e-mail.
The Website and the Service are operated in the United States. If you are located outside of the United States, please be aware that any information you provide to us will be transferred to the United States. By using the Service and/or providing us with any information, you consent to this transfer.

If you are a California resident and (1) you wish to opt out; or (2) you wish to request certain information regarding our disclosure of your Personal Information to third parties for the direct marketing purposes, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or write to us at:
