If you browse through the site without entering any personal data, we may gather and store certain information about your visit.

We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, to gather geographic related information and to administer the site.
There will be times, such as when you communicate with us by e-mail, submit an application for membership, purchase a product, etc., when we will need to obtain personally identifiable information about you. Such personally identifiable information may include your name, home address, e-mail address, telephone number, etc. Consumers who submit an application expressly authorize us to collect information regarding purchases so that their rebates can be recorded. RebatesMe DOES NOT collect any of your credit card information.
The information we receive about you may be used by us or shared by us with our corporate affiliates, agents, vendors and other third parties to help process your request or complete a transaction; to comply with any law, regulation, audit or court order; to help improve our website or the products or services we offer; for research; to better understand our customers' needs; to develop new offerings; and to alert you to new products and services in which you may be interested. We may also combine information you provide us with information about you that is available to us internally or from other sources. We believe that knowing more about you can enable us to serve you better.
We may also aggregate your personal information with other member's information and prepare reports on site usage, purchase history or other factors for sale or distribution to third parties. However, these reports are aggregated and will not include any personally identifying information. Finally, we may use your personal information to send you email or postal communications regarding products or services offered by us or by third parties with whom we have relationships in which we think you may be interested. We do not share, sell, trade or rent your personal information to third parties for unknown reasons. You may at any time choose not to receive promotional emails from us by contacting us at info@RebatesMe.com. Similarly, if you prefer for us not to provide your name and email or postal address to third parties for direct marketing purposes, please contact us at info@RebatesMe.com. Notwithstanding the foregoing, we may continue to contact you for the purpose of communicating information relating to RebatesMe.com, as well as to facilitate, complete or confirm any transaction that you may enter into or responding to your inquiry or request.
We collect nonpublic personal information about you from the following sources:
- Information we receive from you on applications on our website or other forms;
