Elite Media Group and its affiliates (EMG) provide a venue by which merchants can offer discounts to consumers and consumers can, in turn, locate merchants they wish to patronize and take advantage of the discounts that the merchants offer through EMG. To operate this service, EMG necessarily must collect certain information from merchants and consumers.
We recognize the importance of protecting your privacy and our policy is designed to assist you in understanding how we collect, use and safeguard the personal information you provide to us and to assist you in making informed decisions when using our site. This policy will be continuously assessed against new technologies, business practices, and our customers needs.
What Information Do We Collect?
When you visit our website(s) or use our Mobile Application, you may provide us with two types of information: (1) Personal information you knowingly choose to disclose that is collected on an individual basis and (2) Generic website usage information collected on an aggregate basis. If you visit us from another site (e.g., click through us) you have the option of remaining individually anonymous to us throughout your visit.
1. Personal Information You Choose to Provide
When you register for any of our products (including our Mobile Application), services, or newsletters you will provide us information about yourself.
Credit Card Information
If you choose to utilize our services, you will need to provide information to a Credit Card payment processing enterprise. Payment transactions are managed by a third party (e.g., PayPal, Stripe, etc.). We neither collect nor maintain credit card information. We cross-reference an Order Number with our payment processor in order to resolve any potential disputes.
If you choose to correspond with us through email, we may retain the content of the email messages that you send to us together with your email address and our responses to you.
By using the Internet to use our Website or Mobile Application, you will likely automatically transmit data to our servers about the location from which you are accessing our Website or Mobile Application (you can sometimes adjust what information you transmit by adjusting the settings on your devices and browsers). EMG uses location services and information about the location from where you are using the Mobile Application to deliver to you offers from Merchants that are located in your geographic area. In addition, when a User redeems a coupon using the Mobile Application, geolocation data regarding the User’s location at the time of redemption is sent to EMG and EMG merchant partners this geolocation data. EMG does NOT share with any third party any location data that we collect.
2. Generic Information

What Are Cookies?
How Do We Use Information We Collect from Cookies?
IP addresses are used by your computer every time you are connected to the Internet. Your IP address is a number that is used by computers on the network to identify your computer. IP addresses are automatically collected by our web server as part of demographic and profile data known as "traffic data" so that data (such as the web pages you request) can be sent to you.
Do Not Track
Neither the Website nor the Mobile Application respond to Do Not Track signals.
Sharing and Selling Information
We do not share, sell, lend or lease any of the information that uniquely identifies a subscriber (such as email addresses or personal details) with anyone except to the extent it is necessary to process transactions or provide services that you have requested.
What About Legally Compelled Disclosure of Information?
We may disclose information when we, in good faith, believe that the law requires it or for the protection of our legal rights or when otherwise compelled by law to do so. We may also disclose account information when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may be violating our Terms of Service or to protect the safety of our users and the public.

We are not responsible for the practices employed by websites linked to or from our website or the information or content contained therein. Often links to other websites are provided solely as pointers to information on topics that may be useful to the users of our website.
Our Commitment To Data Security
Please note that your information will be stored and processed on our computers in Canada and consistent with Canadian privacy protection standards. The laws on holding personal data in Canada may be less stringent than the laws of your country of residence or citizenship. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. Please be aware that, although we endeavor to provide reasonable security for information we process and maintain, no security system can prevent all potential security breaches. Please also be aware that it is your responsibility to keep your electronic devices secure. We therefore recommend that you do not jailbreak or root your phone, which is the process of removing software restrictions and limitations imposed by the official operating system of your device. It could make your phone vulnerable to malware/viruses/malicious programs, compromise your phone’s security features and it could mean that the Website or Mobile Application will not work properly or at all.
If a time comes where we no longer need to possess information that we collected about you or that you have provided to us (e.g., if you cancel your subscription and the subscription term has expired), we will delete or destroy the information within a reasonable time after our need to possess it has ceased.
If you use Facebook login you can delete your data by loging-in and going to "My Account".
Under the "Customer info" Tab you will find an "External Authentication Table" showing "Facebook Authentication".
Click on the "Remove" link to delete your data.
Surveys & Contests
From time to time, our site requests information from users via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether to disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and shipping address) and demographic information (such as zip code, age level, etc.). 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 this website.
