Depending on how Users/Restaurant owners use the Website/App, we may ask Users/Members to share personally identifiable information ("Personal Information") with us. Whether Users/Restaurant owners choose to share their Personal Information is completely up to them, but Users/Restaurant owners must keep in mind that without sharing adequate Personal Information they may not be able to access some of the areas of the Website/App effectively and fully use the services we offer on the Website. Personal information will be used for only those purposes to which the individual has consented with the exceptions, as permitted under PIPEDA. Personal Information includes any information that identifies or can be used to identify, contact or locate the Users/Restaurant owners. If you send us information about another person, you ensure that it is accurate and in good faith. Below are some of the situations wherein Users/Restaurant owners Personal Information is collected:
Relationship Information: it helps us to understand who you are and what type of restaurant, foods, and advertisements you might like. This includes interest information, the types of vouchers that interest you; information collected from social media interactions (such as via Facebook Connect), and demographic information (e.g., birth date, age, gender, zip code);
We may collect Users/Restaurant owners email address to send them account confirmations, notifications for alerts, and to provide services to them in connection with the Website/App. Subject to Users consent, we may also send to Users promotional emails, such as monthly newsletters regarding the properties and new service offerings;
We also collect Users/Restaurant owners Personal Information for administrative purposes, such as addressing account and billing issues, troubleshooting Website/App issues, investigating abuse on the Website/App, responding to enquiries and enforcing and applying our Terms and Conditions of Service.

For example, we may track the vouchers you view, submit or redeem via a desktop computer; the gift cards that you purchase from us via your mobile device;

We use information that we collect about you or that you provide us:
