Contact information, such as names, telephone numbers, email addresses, postal addresses, social media information, and demographic (e.g., birthday, age, gender, etc.) information, allows us to communicate with you about deals and offers available online.
Networking information, such as social media interactions, interests, activities, hobbies, lifestyle, and coupon preferences, helps us understand even more about you. That data enables us to send advice about products and deals right for you.
User activity information, such as the coupons viewed and redeemed, gift cards purchased, digital rebates claimed, dealings with affiliated merchants, and items and services purchased, inform our customer service and business growth strategies.
Analytics information around your service activities, including your IP address, device ID, access times, domain name, device name and model, language information, duration and frequency of device use, operating system type, screen views, and any other unique identifier, such as Android advertising ID or Apple ADFA, is kept with the utmost respect for privacy.
Geolocation information, collected from your mobile device, gives us data about your physical location in relation to retailors. This information helps us understand the purchasing behaviors of our customers.
We collect user data when you interact with Guru, such as when you register or subscribe to our services. Other methods of gathering information include monitoring the coupons and gift cards you view, redeem, or submit, social media interactions, and information you provide us when contacting customer service. If possible, we also access geolocation data supplied by your mobile devices. Our cookies collect data about how you interact with our services and those of our merchant partners. Occasionally, we obtain user information, such as demographic data, via third parties.
We collect a range of personal data to help us improve and develop our services. This personal information allows us to assess your eligibility for coupons, provide interest- and demographic-relevant offers, track coupon redemption, perform analytics, provide quality user support, tailor advertisements, send reminders, updates, and security alerts, send mobile notifications when you are near affiliated merchants, perform promotional activities, create user profiles, verify accounts, and investigate activity in violation of our terms or policies.
As permitted by law, we may share your personal information with our service providers, affiliated merchants, business partners, advertisers, or other third parties, as well as to third parties during the process of a merger, acquisition, or sale, or as required by courts or law enforcement agencies.
Guru uses technology such as cookies, browser analysis tools, web server logs, pixel tags, and web beacons to collect user data.
Affiliate Cookies: Guru places an affiliate cookie if the end user engages Guru and clicks a coupon or if the end user allows Guru to automatically apply coupon codes.
All personal information that Guru collects helps our company provide the best, most personalized experience for our users. However, there are actions you can take to limit the extent of our data collection: manage or opt-out of your subscription by following instructions in emails or on our website, changing your browser’s privacy and security settings, and turning off location tracking on your mobile device.
We take the security of your personal data seriously. That is why we take comprehensive measures to make sure that all the data we collect is safe and protected. These include using secured-access data centers and frequently monitoring our system for online attacks and system vulnerabilities. However, we cannot give a complete guarantee against potential breaches of our data security system.
