Accordingly, any reference to restrictions, limitations and conditions with respect to the use of the Mall shall also apply to the use of such Technology.

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING TERMS CAREFULLY, AS THEY AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS.

BY ACCESSING OR USING THE MALL AND ANY OTHER TECHNOLOGY, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE READ, UNDERSTOOD, AND UNCONDITIONALLY AGREE TO BE BOUND BY ALL OF THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS CONTAINED IN THESE TERMS.

We encourage you to review these Terms periodically for any updates or changes. We reserve the right to change these Terms by posting a new version without notice to you. Use of the Mall or other Technology after such change constitutes your acceptance of such changes. If you do not accept these Terms, please do not use this Mall.

1. Receiving BeeBucks from Mall Transactions.

This Mall and the BeeBucks™ ("BeeBucks") awarded for use of the Mall and any Technology in accordance with these Terms is subject to the BucksBee terms and conditions ("Program"). The terms and conditions are available here: http://www.bucksbee.com/legal. BeeBucks awards are void where prohibited by law.

In general, BeeBucks will be awarded for your Qualifying Transactions from third party sellers of products and/or services in the Mall ("Merchants"), based on the awards or commissions promised by those Merchants for such Qualifying Transactions. Without limiting anything in these Terms, a "Qualifying Transaction" means a purchase, subscription or other transaction or action (each, a "Transaction") with respect to a Merchant for which (i) a valid offer exists from a Merchant (each, an "Offer"), (ii) as determined by Merchant, in its sole discretion, all of the Merchant's offer terms, including any applicable waiting period, have been met in full and (iii) as determined by FreeCause, in our sole discretion, such Transaction is made in accordance with and subject to the limitations of these Terms. BeeBucks offers are only valid for Qualifying Transactions initiated through the Mall and are not valid toward Transactions placed directly with any Merchant. You may not use any automated means (such as a macro, 'bot or other similar software or application) or any other similar scheme, whether manual or automated, to conduct multiple Transactions on the Mall or with any other Technology to generate BeeBucks, and such use is a material violation of these Terms. Unless the terms of a particular Offer expressly state otherwise, any purchase or other Transaction that qualifies as a Qualifying Transaction shall be limited to one (1) Qualifying Transaction per customer/user. You acknowledge that FreeCause will have the sole right to determine, in its sole and absolute discretion, whether you have violated these Terms. If we discover, for example, that you have conducted (or attempted to conduct), alone or together in concert with other users, multiple Transactions that are proximate in time to each other via the Mall or other Technology (such as our Toolbar or loyalty plug in, for example) with respect to one or more Merchants, and we believe that such Transactions and activities were made in an effort to generate BeeBucks artificially (i.e. not consistent with the intended purpose of the Mall to enable members of the Program to benefit from bona fide Transactions completed with Merchants), we reserve the right to cancel your Transactions, terminate your account with us, report you for your conduct to the Merchant and, as applicable, to the authorities and other third parties. Any such determination will be made by FreeCause, in our sole and absolute discretion, and you agree that we will not have any liability to you or any other person from such actions. WITHOUT LIMITING ANYTHING IN THESE TERMS, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT FREECAUSE'S RIGHTS AND CONDITIONS IN THIS PARAGRAPH FORM AN ESSENTIAL PART OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN YOU AND FREECAUSE BY WHICH YOU ARE GIVEN THE RIGHT TO USE THE MALL AND OTHER TECHNOLOGY ON THE TERMS, AND THAT WITHOUT YOUR AGREEMENT TO SUCH RIGHTS AND CONDITIONS, YOU DO NOT HAVE THE RIGHT TO USE THE MALL AND SUCH TECHNOLOGY, AND THAT ANY ACTIVITIES OR TRANSACTIONS THAT YOU MAY CONDUCT ON THE MALL OR WITH ANY TECHNOLOGY ARE VOID BUT FOR SUCH AGREEMENT.

To receive your BeeBucks for Qualifying Transactions, you must:
- Be logged into the Mall
- Use only valid links within the Mall website to enter a participating Merchant's website
- Complete the Qualifying Transaction within the session generated by clicking a valid link

BeeBucks will not be awarded for any Transactions made through a third party retailer or other merchant that may be independently linked from a participating Merchant's website. To verify you are in a valid session, re-enter the Mall and click on the Merchant logo or name and then click the "Shop Now" link for the Merchant with whom you want to transact.

It is your responsibility to carefully read and understand the terms and conditions of any Merchant Offer, including any exclusion and waiting periods that may apply, and to follow the instructions so that the Transaction constitutes a Qualifying Transaction. Exclusions may include but are not limited to certain products or services excluded by the Merchant from the Offer, applicable taxes, shipping, handling, duties, credit card fees, personalization, gift-wrapping, Transactions paid for with gift cards, or shipments outside the United States. BeeBucks will not be awarded and/or will be rescinded for any orders or other customer commitments (such as new accounts being opened) being cancelled, returned or otherwise terminated, by the customer or the Merchant (each, a "Return") or where a customer fails to pay for the products or services, due to a failed credit card authorization, chargeback, credit fraud or otherwise.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in these Terms or in the Mall, you acknowledge the following:

- The listings of Offers for products and services and Merchants on the Mall are solely an advertisement and promotion placed by each such Merchant on the Mall. Any statement regarding any BeeBucks, discounts, pricing or otherwise on the Mall with respect to any Transaction with such Merchant is not, and shall not in any way be deemed to be, an offer that may be accepted to create any contract with, or impose any binding obligation upon, FreeCause or such Merchant. To the extent that any contract or course of dealing exists between FreeCause and any Merchant, directly or indirectly, you will not have any rights, and will not claim to have any rights, under such contract or course of dealing.

- The decision on whether or not a Qualifying Transaction took place (or a Return took place), and whether or not to pay a commission that results in any BeeBucks award, is made solely by the Merchant.

- It is possible that a Merchant may have exclusions for a Qualifying Transaction that are in addition to any that may be listed on our Mall. Accordingly, you agree that we are not responsible for any BeeBucks that you may have expected to receive from any Transaction if a Merchant decides not to treat such Transaction as a Qualifying Transaction, or otherwise fails for any reason to pay a commission to us in respect of such Transaction.

- You conduct all activity on our Mall and with any Technology at your own risk.

While we hope this does not happen often or ever, it is also possible that a mistake, inaccuracy or omission (collectively, "mistakes") on our Mall or Technology occurs from time to time, where the Offer is not completely or correctly described, or where the Technology incorrectly informs you that a Transaction is a Qualifying Transaction. We will use our reasonable efforts to correct a mistake as soon as practicable after we discover it or it is brought to our attention. We also reserve the right at any time to: (i) revoke any stated Offer; (ii) correct any mistake; (iii) make changes to prices, content, promotion offers, product descriptions or specifications, or other information without obligation to issue any notice of such changes (including after a Transaction has already been processed, except as otherwise prohibited by applicable law) and (iv) not award you any BeeBucks (and to reverse any BeeBucks previously awarded) from any and all Transactions that you processed that otherwise may have been Qualifying Transactions, but for the mistake. We also reserve the right to limit quantities (including after a Transaction has been submitted and/or acknowledged) and to revise, suspend, or terminate an Offer at any time without notice. The inclusion of any Offer on our Mall does not guarantee that the Offer is still available from the Merchant. If the Offer is not available, your sole remedy is to return to the Merchant the products or services purchased from a Merchant, in accordance with the Merchant's return policy. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience that this may cause you.


BeeBucks will be posted to your member account within 8-10 weeks from the product ship date or other applicable Transaction date. You agree that we will not be responsible for any delay in posting BeeBucks to your account. Pre-orders and backorders are not subject to award until a Merchant ships product and confirms the Qualifying Transaction. The Offers and Points received through Transactions on the Mall or other Technology are not valid on previous purchases and cannot be combined with any other offer or promotion unless specifically stated by the applicable Merchant.

As noted above, upon notification from a Merchant, we reserve the right to deny and/or to reverse any BeeBucks posted to your account for any valid reason including, without limitation: (i) your failure to fulfill the requirements of a Qualifying Transaction, including any failure to pay for the products or services covered by the Transaction; (ii) for any Return (even if the underlying Transaction was a Qualifying Transaction); or (iii) if you make a purchase from a Merchant with the intent to defraud or circumvent or abuse the qualification terms of an offer, attempt to earn BeeBucks through repeated and/or automated actions (such as macros, for example) or if you violate these Terms. You acknowledge that the Merchant controls whether or not to process any Return for any Transaction, and in the event of any Return, you will not be entitled to any BeeBucks. We will use reasonable efforts to respond to any inquiries made by you within 90 days. We are not responsible if a Merchant delays or fails to authorize any Qualifying Transaction or for any other delay in recording BeeBucks in your account. Furthermore, you acknowledge that any award of BeeBucks is contingent upon the acceptance of the underlying Transaction by the applicable Merchant as a Qualifying Transaction, and that if the Merchant for any reason refuses or fails to pay its commission for any Transaction, whether or not it would otherwise appear to be a Qualifying Transaction, or if the payment of the commission to us is reclaimed for any reason (including, without limitation, due to the bankruptcy, insolvency or liquidation of a Merchant), we reserve the right not to award you any BeeBucks in respect of such commission and to reverse your account for any BeeBucks that may have been previously awarded in respect of such commission.

YOU AGREE THAT ANY DISPUTE, ACTION OR ACTION RELATING TO ANY TRANSACTION (INCLUDING WHETHER SUCH TRANSACTION IS A QUALIFYING TRANSACTION) MUST BE RESOLVED EXCLUSIVELY BETWEEN YOU AND THE MERCHANT. YOU AGREE TO INDEMNIFY AND HOLD HARMLESS (i) FREECAUSE AND ITS PARENTS, SUBSIDIARIES OR AFFILIATES, (ii) ANY MERCHANTS, SERVICE PROVIDERS, AFFILIATE NETWORKS AND OTHER THIRD PARTIES WORKING FOR OR WITH FREECAUSE, AND THEIR RESPECTIVE PARENTS, SUBSIDIARIES AND AFFILIATES, AND (iii) THE DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES AND AGENTS OF ANY OF THE FOREGOING PARTIES REFERRED TO IN CLAUSES (i) AND (ii) (COLLECTIVELY, THE "INDEMNIFIED PARTIES") FROM AND AGAINST ANY AND ALL CLAIMS, DEMANDS AND DAMAGES, INCLUDING THE PAYMENT OF REASONABLE ATTORNEY'S FEES, ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO (i) YOUR USE OF THE MALL AND/OR OTHER TECHNOLOGY, (ii) ANY CLAIMS THAT YOU MAY HAVE AGAINST, OR ANY DISPUTES THAT YOU MAY HAVE WITH, ANY INDEMNIFIED PARTY WITH RESPECT TO ANY BEEBUCKS AWARD, OR OTHERWISE, OR ANY TERMS OF ANY OFFER ON THE MALL, (iii) YOUR BREACH OF THESE TERMS; AND/OR (iv) YOUR VIOLATION OF LAW OR INTENTIONAL WRONGFUL CONDUCT OR NEGLIGENCE. AS A CONDITION OF FREECAUSE'S ASSISTANCE OR COOPERATION IN ANY DISPUTE THAT YOU MAY HAVE WITH ANY MERCHANT, YOU AGREE THAT ANY INFORMATION SHARED BY FREECAUSE REGARDING SUCH DISPUTE SHALL BE STRICTLY CONFIDENTIAL AND YOU AGREE NOT TO DISPARAGE FREECAUSE.

2. Participating Merchants

Merchants participating in the Mall are subject to change without prior notice. We are not responsible for setting or maintaining the amount of BeeBucks offered by any Merchant or for requirements of any Merchant's offer program, particular Offer or Qualifying Transaction. From time to time Merchants may offer incremental bonus points, special offers and discounts on the Mall. Please review the details for each Merchant to view all promotion dates and the terms of the applicable program on such matters. The amount of BeeBucks rewarded, as well as the terms and conditions of any Qualifying Transaction, may change for any offer at any time. Your continued use of the Mall and the Technology thereafter will constitute acceptance of such terms and conditions. Accordingly, please also refer to each Merchant's website for all terms and conditions relating to the Transaction with such Merchant, including but not limited to, guarantees, warranties, payment terms, shipping, delivery, taxes, return policies and processing of returns. We make no warranties and disclaim all responsibility for fulfillment of the Transaction between you and any Merchant.

3. Cookies Systems

In order for us to track your Qualifying Transactions with Merchants and for you to receive BeeBucks for those Transactions, you must use an internet browser for those Transactions with the option to accept cookies turned on. This tracking function is performed using cookies both from our affiliate networks and from many of the Merchants. If your browser blocks cookies, we may not be able to award BeeBucks for your Qualifying Transactions. You may not receive notification that your browser is blocking cookies. Also, if the Merchant fails to report to us any Transaction that you believe to be a Qualifying Transaction, we will not award you any BeeBucks, and you will not be entitled to any such BeeBucks unless and until the Merchant reports such Transaction, authorizes the Transaction as a Qualifying Transaction and pays its commission for such Qualifying Transaction.

We periodically schedule system downtime for maintenance and other purposes. Unplanned system outages also may occur. We have no liability whatsoever for the resulting unavailability of the Mall or other Technology or for any loss of data or transactions caused by planned or unplanned system outages or any delay, misdelivery or nondelivery of information, or any third party acts or any other outages of web hosting providers or the internet infrastructure and network external to the Mall or other Technology.

4. Privacy

By using the Mall and other Technology, you agree that we may collect and use certain information and data relating to your use, as more fully described in our privacy policy, posted here http://www.bucksbee.com/legal, which is governed by United States state and federal laws. We retain and reserve all rights in such data. We reserve the right to amend our privacy policies from time to time. The policies, as they may be amended, are integrated and incorporated by reference into these Terms.

Without limiting the foregoing, you acknowledge we may collect information about you, your activities on the Mall, your use of the Technology and activity on the internet with that Technology and your activities and Transactions with Merchants. You hereby authorize Merchants and their respective agents to disclose to us information regarding purchases made, products ordered, order number, the time and date the purchase occurred, and the email entered for the purchase. You agree to hold the Indemnified Parties harmless for any information so disclosed to us. You authorize us to use any such information and to disclose such information to our agents and service providers as reasonably required to operate the Mall and other Technology and otherwise in accordance with our Privacy Policy.

We make no claims that information on the Mall is appropriate or may be downloaded outside of the United States. Access to the Mall may not be legal in certain countries or for certain persons. If you access the Mall from outside of the United States, you do so at your own risk and are responsible for compliance with the laws of your jurisdiction regarding online conduct and acceptable content. In such case, you also acknowledge and agree that we may collect and use your information and disclose it to other entities outside your resident jurisdiction. In addition, such information may be stored on servers located outside your resident jurisdiction. United States law may not provide the degree of protection for information that is available in other countries. By providing us with your information, you acknowledge that you consent to the transfer of such information outside your resident jurisdiction as detailed in our privacy policy. If you do not consent to such transfer, you may not use the Mall or other Technology.

Please also take note that Merchants participating in the Mall operate their websites with different privacy practices. Accordingly, you should review the privacy policy of each Merchant's website, as we have no control over information that is submitted by you to these third parties. Merchants may also collect additional information to ensure BeeBucks are tracked and reported including the use of cookies. We have no access or controls over the usage of these cookies or the collection and dissemination of additional information they may collect.

Frequently Asked Questions
End User License Agreement

FREECAUSE TOOLBAR END USER LICENSE AGREEMENT

Welcome to the RewardsBar™ toolbar (RewardsBar) powered by FreeCause, Inc., a Rakuten company. By downloading and installing the RewardsBar, you agree to be legally bound by this following End User License Agreement (this “EULA”). As used in this EULA, the “RewardsBar” or “Software” means the toolbar software designed to work with the internet web browser installed on your computer, including any updates, revisions, patches or other modifications from time to time to this software. The “Loyalty Platform” is defined as the system of toolbars, portals, online shopping malls and social media applications employed to deliver the user experience consistent with the Permitted Uses and Restrictions provided below.

FreeCause reserves the right to update and change, from time to time, this EULA and all documents incorporated by reference herein. You can always find the most recent version of the FreeCause EULA at http://www.bucksbee.com/legal. FreeCause may change this EULA by posting a new version without notice to you. Use of the Software after such change constitutes your acceptance of such changes.

Grant of Limited Use License

If you agree to this EULA, you may install and personally use the RewardsBar and any updates provided by FreeCause in object code form on a personal computer owned or controlled by you. Subject to your agreement to and continuing compliance with this EULA (as it may be amended by FreeCause from time to time), FreeCause hereby grants, and you hereby accept, a personal, limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable license to install and use the RewardsBar consistent with the Permitted Uses and Restrictions provided below. This EULA does not entitle you to receive from us hard-copy documentation, support, telephone assistance, or enhancements or updates to the Software.

Permitted Uses

By agreeing to this EULA, your permitted uses and restrictions with respect to the Software are as follows:

(a) Generally: You may use the RewardsBar to enhance your Internet surfing experience by being provided with relevant references displayed in your browser.

(b) Search the Internet: During installation, the Software may change the default search engine in your browser's search box, if such a search box exists in your browser. This alteration allows FreeCause to track your searches. You may reconfigure your search settings at any time from the settings options provided by the BucksBee RewardsBar and/or your browser. Learn more.

(c) eCommerce: When visiting a participating merchant’s website (via direct type-in, clicking on a PPC ad or an organic search result ) with which FreeCause has a business relationship, the Software will prompt you that: (1) this is a participating merchant; and (2) depending on the configuration of the Software with respect to such merchant, the Software will either set cookies on your computer through an affiliate network or it will give you the option of earning contributions/rewards/points etc. on an opt-in basis. (Please see paragraph below for additional information about our use of cookies). In the latter case, if you then decide not to opt in, you will not be entitled to earn any contributions/rewards/points, etc. in connection with your activity. If the cookie is automatically placed on your computer by an affiliate network, or if you do opt-in as set forth above, then you or the cause or organization for which you are earning contributions/rewards/points, etc. will be entitled to earnings or other benefits upon the successful completion of a sales transaction on a commissionable item. Please note, however, that if cookies or other similar tracking devices from other referral partners are already present on your computer, the Software will not overwrite those cookies, but it may still prompt you when you have arrived at a participating merchant’s website. In lay terms, if you had previously visited another referral partner’s website at some time within a merchant-determined cookie period, that referral partner would gain the commission from being associated with a participating merchant that you now visit. In that case the commission/rewards/points would belong exclusively to the other referral partner. Our use of cookies is more specifically described in our FreeCause Technology Privacy Policy. See Privacy Policy section below.

(d) Enhanced Experience: When visiting certain sites, the RewardsBar may add to the page you are visiting certain html code to enhance your experience by adding deals/coupons to links and text, as well as a notification system that will keep you connected with the brand associated with the RewardsBar that you have installed.

(e) Updates: When installed on your computer, the Software periodically communicates with our servers. We may update the Software on your computer when a new version is released or when new features are added. These updates occur automatically. We also reserve the right to add features or functions to the Software. Notwithstanding the above, we have no obligation to make available to you any subsequent versions or new features of the Software.

(f) BeeBucks™: After installing the RewardsBar, as long as the RewardsBar remains active in your browser, you will be able to earn BeeBucks™ by performing valid searches and entering into transactions with Merchants in the BucksBee Online Rewards Mall. BeeBucks are a virtual currency that can be used to redeem products and services offered by our redemption partners. Except for the right to redeem BeeBucks with such partners, BeeBucks have no inherent value and cannot be exchanged for cash or used to purchase goods or services from our Merchant.

Privacy Policy

BUCKSBEE.COM
Privacy Policy



This Privacy Policy (Policy) describes how we treat personally identifiable information that we may collect from you via our RewardsBar™ toolbar (Toolbar), browser object, plug-in or widget (Plug-In), or BucksBee Earn Mall™ online shopping mall (Mall) or our website at http://www.bucksbee.com (Website). The Toolbar, Plug-In and Mall, Website, and other software applications that may be offered from time to time (as applicable) are collectively referred to in this Policy as the Technology. The Technology is powered by FreeCause, Inc., a Rakuten company. Any reference to "we", "our", "us" or the like in this Policy refers collectively to FreeCause, Inc. "You", "your" or the like refers to you, the end user of the Technology. We will notify you if we materially change this Policy, at which time you will have the opportunity to discontinue using the Technology.

If you decide that you no longer wish to use the Toolbar, Plug-In or one of our other software applications, you may uninstall it at any time via the standard uninstall process for your operating system and browser (e.g., Add/Remove Programs in Microsoft Windows, Add-on Removal in Mozilla Firefox, etc.) In the case of the Toolbar, you may also hide or deactivate the Toolbar by clicking the View menu in your browser and deselecting the Toolbar from the list of available toolbars.

If you would like to change or remove any personally identifiable information you have provided to us, or if you have any questions in general relating to our privacy practices, please contact us at info@bucksbee.com.

Collection of Personally Identifiable Information

Upon installing any Toolbar or Plug-In, or to use the Mall, you may be prompted to register an account to use various features and benefits associated with the Technology. To register an account, you will need to provide various information about yourself, which may include, without limitation, your name, email address, a unique password for your account, your age, gender and income levels (collectively, Information). We collect Information regarding your age, gender and income level on behalf of third party service providers that aggregate such data with other demographic information for marketing purposes. We also collect the age of our users to determine whether the User is 13 years or older, and therefore eligible to register for a User account.

If you choose not to register an account at such time, you will still be able to use the Technology, but you will not be able to use many of the features and benefits. If you do not wish to provide any particular information about yourself, you may leave such data fields blank, in which case, based on the information that you did provide, the features and benefits for which you may be eligible under the Programs (as defined below) may differ from those members that do complete all of the requested Information. We may contact you from time to time to remind you of the benefits of registration and completing all of the Information, and you will have the opportunity to do so at a later time.

Once you have registered as a user, your Information is used to provide a unique account to access the Mall, participate in sponsored search and shopping activities, interact with other users, post comments or other content, and to participate in reward programs, online shopping promotions and other benefits that are made available for our registered users by us and our business partners via the Technology (Programs). Your Information will be used to identify you in our system and to contact you in connection with the Programs. When you have logged into your user account, we may also be able to track certain information about searches that you conduct or links that you click on in your browser.

As part of its functionality, the Toolbar and Plug-In may enable us to collect some information. For example, when you submit a query via the search box on the Toolbar, the Toolbar sends some basic information to us, including your IP address, your search request, and some cookie data. We also have the ability to store and analyze the queries that you submit. The information sent to us by the Toolbar or Plug-In may also be logged. We may aggregate such data and share it with third parties for marketing and research purposes. In the event that you enter a non-functioning URL, the Toolbar and Plug-In also contain functionality that enables us to redirect you to the intended location. As part of this function, the Toolbar and Plug-In sends us information on the URLs you type.

When you download our Toolbar or Plug-In you will also be given the option of enabling us to collect your clickstream data. Clickstream data includes information such as your IP address, the URLs (generally the address information) of websites you have viewed (and any information the web page you're viewing places in those URLs), the date and time you viewed the web pages, the duration of each visit and the search terms you entered on any web page that enables online search. Should you opt-in to share your clickstream data, we will collect and share this information with our third party service providers, which use this information, in anonymous or aggregated fashion, to help us understand what sites, products and services our members interact with and to derive statistics on the demographics and behavior of our users. The tracking software is designed to remove any such personally identifiable information that may appear in the data, including personally identifiable information on website pages and URL strings, that is collected. If any personal information, such as something that you may have typed into a field on a page, is inadvertently collected, we and our third party service providers will make every commercially viable effort to purge that information promptly and not to disclose such information. However, since it is possible that such information may not get purged and end up in our data pool, we wanted to bring this to your attention. If you no longer wish to share such information, you must uninstall the Toolbar or Plug-In, as applicable. We will retain and use your Information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes and enforce our agreements. We will also retain all clickstream data as long as it is necessary to fulfill our business services, or as required by law.

Third Party Websites

Please note that the Technology contains links to third party websites. Each such website has its own data collection practices and privacy policies. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of such third parties, and it is your responsibility to read and understand their privacy policies.

Use and Sharing of Personally Identifiable Information

The personally identifiable information we collect is generally used as follows:

- to develop, offer and deliver our products and services, to offer products and services of our corporate affiliates, merchant partners, publishers and other companies, and to fulfill legal and regulatory requirements.

- to conduct market research, marketing and advertising activities, project planning, troubleshoot problems, detect and protect against error, fraud or other criminal activity, to enforce our terms of use and for other purposes, as otherwise set forth in this Policy and as otherwise authorized by you.

- to notify you about special offers or other products and services that may be of interest to you. Based on your Information, we may also contact you and deliver information to you that may be targeted to your interests, such as targeted banner advertisements, and product offering communications. You will always be able to decline any or all of these communications by following the directions included in our emails or other communications. Our technology also allows us to send emails, push messaging and other forms of electronic communications to users that have registered accounts with us.

We may share your personally identifiable information with nonaffiliated third parties as permitted or required by law, as otherwise specified in this Policy or as otherwise authorized by you, including as provided below:

- In order to provide our products and services, we may share personally identifiable information about you with our corporate affiliates, agents and service providers to perform functions or services on our behalf. These service providers are obligated to access and use personally identifiable information only as needed to perform their functions and for no other purposes.

- We may collect your personally identifiable information on behalf of third parties that compensate us to collect such data and use it for research, advertising and marketing purposes.

- We may disclose personally identifiable information about you to third parties, including law enforcement and other government agencies and authorities when we believe such disclosure is appropriate to comply with a legal requirement, such as a law, regulation, court order, subpoena or search warrant, or has been requested from us in the course of a legal proceeding or in connection with an investigation. We may also disclose personally identifiable information as we believe appropriate to enforce or apply our rights under our agreements with customers, to protect our and our partners’ rights, property or safety, including exchanging information for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.

Non Personally Identifiable Information

Non personally identifiable information is information that cannot identify a particular person. Except where otherwise determined by applicable law, this type of information would include a zip code or city or state of residence, without an association to a name or address, as well as information transmitted during routine Internet communications, a user’s Internet Service Provider, a computer’s operating system and browser type. We may provide aggregated, non personally identifiable information about our supporters to third parties for audit, marketing, research and other purposes.

Cookies

Like most websites and toolbar products, we use cookies and web log files to track your usage of the Technology, including searches that you perform with the Toolbar or via a web browser on which you have installed one of our Toolbars, and your use of the Mall and participation in any Programs. A cookie is a tiny data file that resides on your computer and allows FreeCause to recognize you as a registered user when you use the Technology using the same computer and web browser and to provide you with personalized features. Unfortunately, if your browser settings do not allow cookies, you may not be able to obtain full use of the Technology. Cookies also help us understand how users use and interact with the Technology, which allows us to continually improve our products and services and assist the Publisher with such products and its Programs. Like the information you enter at registration, cookie and log file data is used to customize your experience and to provide you with personalized features.

Due to the communications standards on the Internet, when you visit the Mall or our Website, we automatically receive the URL of the site from which you came and the site to which you are going when you leave the Mall or our Website. We also receive the Internet protocol (IP) address of your computer (or the proxy server you use to access the web), your computer operating system and type of web browser you are using, as well as the name of your ISP. Tracking technologies are used to gather statistical data on users and more generally to improve our services and the offering of Programs.

We also use one or more companies to place advertisements for our products and services and those of third parties on our Mall, websites and otherwise shown via the FreeCause Technology. Cookies and other technologies such as web beacons or tags are used to measure the effectiveness of our ads and to determine the display of content and advertising to you based on your interests both on our site, as well as on third party sites where you may visit. To support this interest-based advertising solution, we, and companies who we have contracted with, may collect and use anonymous information about your visits to our and other websites, searches that you conduct and other similar web browsing activity.

Although it is our hope that you find the display of advertising to you based on your anonymous interests valuable, if you would prefer not to participate in the services offered through these solutions, you can always opt-out of this activity by visiting the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) website by clicking here.

No Adware

Our Toolbar or Plug-In does not launch pop-up or pop-under advertisement browser windows or contain any “adware”.

Children

In compliance with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), we will not knowingly provide access to any Technology or any Programs to, or collect any personally identifiable information from, persons under the age of thirteen (13). If you are under the age of 13, you may not register for any User account and may not enroll in any Programs. If we learn that a user is under the age of thirteen (13), we will take appropriate steps to remove the user's information from the database and restrict the individual from future access to the Technology and the Programs.

Security

We take precautions—including technical, administrative and physical measures—to safeguard your information. We use technical safeguards such as firewalls and data encryption. Your account information including email address is located on a secured server behind a firewall. We authorize access to personally identifiable information, including email addresses, only for those employees, contractors and agents who need to know that information in order to operate, develop or improve our services. These individuals are bound by confidentiality obligations and may be subject to discipline, including termination and criminal prosecution, if they fail to meet these obligations. We also enforce physical access controls to our buildings and files.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

We may update this Policy at any time. The latest version of this Policy will always be available at www.bucksbee.com. Please check this page occasionally to make sure you are aware of any updates.
