How We Use Your Email Address
When you sign up for our mailing lists, a Passport Program account, or other service or promotion that requires registration, you will be required to provide a valid email address. We will only use this email address to contact you as part of the transaction process, to send you periodic emails that you have subscribed to, or for purposes that are intended to enhance your user experience. We may also occasionally contact you to obtain feedback on a specific merchant deal you have participated in. We will not share your contact information with third parties unless you have opted-in to receiving communications from those third parties, such as in the process of purchasing a voucher.
Passport Program will generally allow you to choose to not receive certain types of email communication from us, except for those that are absolutely necessary. Emails will generally contain a link at the bottom to be removed from our mailing list.
How We Use Your Name
When purchasing a voucher, you may be required to provide the full name of the person who will use it, whether that will be you or the person who will receive the voucher as a gift. We will only share this name with the merchant listed on that voucher. Your full name may be used by the merchant for the purposes of verifying that the voucher is valid. We will also collect your full name during the checkout process to verify your credit card payment info. When signing up for our mailing lists, a Passport Program account, or other services or promotions that require registration, you may also provide your name at that time so that we can personalize all communications you receive from us.
How We Use Your Financial Information
For purchasing deals, we request credit card or other payment account information which are maintained in encrypted form on secure servers. We do not share this information with any third party except for those companies responsible for processing credit card transactions for us.
How We Use Your Demographic Information
We will occasionally collect demographic data, such as zip code, gender, and occupation. Providing this information is typically optional but helps us bring you the best deals possible. We use this data to help determine which deals our users would most appreciate. We may also share this data with third parties, such as merchants featured on our site, but only in aggregate. No third party will be able to trace your personal demographic information back to you unless you have given your permission to do so.
How We Use Information Collected From Various Third Party Sources
We may combine information you submit under your account with information from other Passport Program services or third parties in order to provide you with a better experience and to improve the quality of our services. For certain services, we may give you the opportunity to opt out of combining such information.
By logging into the Passport Program website using your Facebook credentials, you will be giving Passport Program access to certain general personal info stored in your Facebook profile. We will not view or store any data available to us from your Facebook profile without first presenting you with the option to choose for us to not view or store it. Your ability to edit the information obtained from Facebook upon signup is a clear part of our account registration process.
At various times on thepassportprogram.com, you will be able to easily share our content with your Facebook and Twitter friends. We do not view or store lists of your friends, nor do we view or store the specific messages that you send to your friends.
