As part of your use of the Site, we collect both personally identifiable information and non-personally identifiable information. When you sign up as a Qponsr User, we collect and store minimal personal information in order to create an account which is comprised of your registered email address and a password (your “Account Information”). This is the only information required to use Qponsr.
You may choose to add other personally identifiable information to your Account Information in order to use additional capabilities of the Service (such as grocery store loyalty card numbers and information, etc); however such additional information is optional.
We collect and store this information in order to authorize your login to the Service, to provide the necessary capabilities of Qponsr, to better understand Users and their usage of Qposnr, to contact Users regarding information about Qponsr and to improve and make modifications to Qponsr. We also use this information to properly attribute Content uploaded by you, to contact you regarding any questions we may have regarding this Content, or to attribute any comments or posts that you may upload to Qponsr.
We also use your Account Information to validate and activate your initial registration via email, as well as to provide password recovery should you request it. We may also use your Account Information to periodically provide you with information about our products and services or other general information we believe you may find valuable.
We may also use your Account Information to contact you regarding important information, changes or updates to the Service, and these forms of communications are mandatory as part of your use of Qponsr. In other words, you cannot “opt out” of any important communications related to your use of the Qponsr service.
All of your Account Information will be kept private from other Users by default, and will change only if you explicitly decide to share this information with other Qponsr Users.
We use all of the information that we collect from your use of the Sites, any information you provide when you register with us, and information provided to us by third parties as described below. The following are the ways we use information we collect:
Third party advertisers do not have access to any of your Account Information unless you specifically choose to share it with them. If you choose to respond to an offer for product or services from an advertiser, sales or marketing partner (“Vendor”) of Qponsr as part of your use of the Service, you may be asked to submit additional demographic and other personal information not required by Qponsr. With your consent, this Vendor may also use your Account Information, along with any additional information you may directly provide to the Vendor. We do not collect or store any additional information that you may provide to a Vendor.
Should you decide to Upload content and designate it as Public Content, any personally identifiable information provided as part of your Content will be available to other Users. This Public Content (such as recipes, recommendations, store information, saving amounts, store locations, comments on blogs or articles, etc.) may also appear in the results of searches provided by on Internet search engines. In the event that your account is terminated, it is possible that your personal information may continue to be displayed in public Internet search results for some time, even after your User account has been terminated, due to the various indexing policies of different search engines.
Qponsr will not share any of your Account Information with third parties unless you give us your permission. However, we may provide non-personally identifiable information about you in an aggregate form with other User information. For example, we may collect, aggregate and share utilization, visitors or session times, popular areas or content of the Service, etc. The third parties to which we may provide this information may include advertisers (whether current, past or potential advertisers), advertising networks or other advertising sales, marketing or technology providers, partners, sponsors, traffic measurement services or other similar parties.
In the event that Qponsr, LLC is sold or is a party to a business transaction where all or substantial all of its assets are transferred to a third party, we reserve the right to transfer your Account Information and other personal information to that third party.
We will collect and use Aggregate Information as described here. Aggregate information is data we collect about group activity, and does not contain any personally identifiable information. Examples of such Aggregate Information include, but are not limited to, search queries on products, recipes or stores, checklists, types and quantities of items added to Lists, and data on how and when Users access Qponsr. We collect this information in order to better understand how Users utilize Qponsr with the goal to anticipate future User requirements and identify group trend activity. Understanding this Aggregate Information also allows us and third parties to tailor product and service offers to our Users. We may also share Aggregate Information about our Users with third parties for various purposes, such as additional analysis of data for sales, marketing, performance and usability testing and advertising.
A browser cookie ("Cookie") is a small piece of information stored by a web browser that is used to communicate with
a web server when the browser connects to a web site. A browser Cookie is persistent, which means that once it is
placed in your web browser, it will stay there until it is deleted. In addition to Cookies, we or third party
advertisers may also utilize "Pixel Tags" (also know as "1x1 gifs," "clear gifs," or "web beacons.")
We might utilize one or more Cookies or Pixel Tags in order to enhance and tailor your experience with Qponsr.
Perhaps the simplest way we might use a Cookie is to make your Qponsr experience more efficient by saving your login and preference information.
This information is stored in our web server logs (more information below on how we use web server logs) and helps provide us with information regarding how you and other Users are utilizing Qponsr.
We may use Session Cookies to gather information regarding when and how long you use Qponsr in any given session. Session Cookies are not persistent – that is to say they are not stored in your web browser – they are deleted as soon as you close your browser.
When you use the Sites or open one of our emails, we use technology (including web beacons and cookies, IP addresses, unique device IDs, user IDs, and log files) to automatically collect non-personally identifiable information including:
We may link automatically collected information to personally identifiable information you submit while on the Sites when you are logged in or in connection with a service you have requested. For example, we could store your user ID together with your email address so that you can manage and (if you chose to) share your shopping list.
If you use our grocery list application we will collect and store for you the items you put on your list. We also may use that information to serve you tailored advertising, coupons or other content. For instance, if your list includes baby food, we may present you with a coupon or advertisement from us or an Affiliate for baby food or related items, such as diapers. If you choose to invite someone to share your shopping list, we will ask you to provide us with that person’s email address in order to send them your invitation. We store this information in order to administer the list sharing feature, but we do not share it with any third party.
Use of the Sites, including our mobile applications, may include location-based services. If you use those services, we may receive information about your location which we may use to send you geographically relevant promotions or advertisements. In addition, this could be shared with the friends and families you have linked with your account.

The Sites incorporate physical, electronic, and administrative procedures to safeguard the confidentiality of your personal information. Additional security measures, such as Secure Sockets Layer (“SSL”) or other technology, will be used if you engage in financial transactions on our Sites. However, as no security measures are perfect or impenetrable, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us.
Protecting the privacy of young children is especially important. For that reason, we do not knowingly collect or
maintain information from persons under 13 years of age, and no part of our Sites is structured to attract anyone
under 13. If you are under 13 years of age, then please do not use or access the Sites at any time or in any manner.
If we learn that personally identifiable information of persons under 13 years of age has been collected on the
Sites without verified parental consent, then we will take the appropriate steps to delete this information.
