Perkville Privacy Policy

Effective on May 13, 2011.

This document describes the personal information we collect and how we use it. We collect this information to personalize your experience, improve our web site, improve customer service, process reward transactions and to periodically contact you via email. You acknowledge that you accept the practices described in this Privacy Policy by visiting Perkville.

Account Information

Account information includes, but is not limited to, the following data:

  • Name
  • Email address
  • Businesses on Perkville can see the email addresses of people they've given and/or redeemed points to. They can only see a person's full name after that person has explicitly accepted points from the business. We will not inform a business that you declined their points if you do so.

If you a user opts to publicly display his transactions with a business, then we reserve the right to publicly display his first name and last initial along with certain transaction information for that business. We encourage users to publicly display their transaction information so that people can learn where other people, including their friends, frequent and so that we can making earning points fun by showing users how they rank against each other.

Users can control if their transaction information is public or private for each business in the privacy section of their settings.

Transaction Information

Transaction information includes, but is not limited to, the following data:

  • Email address of customer of the transaction
  • Name of customer of the transaction (if customer has accepted points from the business)
  • Date and time a transaction took place
  • Product or service in the transaction
  • Business employee that performed the transaction
  • Number of points added or redeemed by the transaction

Employees that have access to Perkville through their business can see all data for transactions from their business. Users can see their own transactions across the businesses they transact with on Perkville. Businesses and users cannot see data for transactions they're not a party to unless a user has opted to publicly display transaction information for a business.

If you a user opts to publicly display his transactions with a business, then we reserve the right to publicly display certain transaction information. We will NOT publicly display his email address or the employee that processed the transaction.

Employee Information

We collect information from businesses' employees using Perkville including but not limited to the following data:

  • Name
  • Email address
  • Transactions the employee processes

This information is made available to other employees in the same business. If someone is an employee of more than one business on Perkville, each transaction is associated with one business and only the employees from that business can see those transactions, not employees of other businesses that the person is employed by.

Businesses Information

We collect business information, including but not limited to, the following data:

  • Business name
  • Address
  • Phone number
  • Web Address
  • Business categories
  • Reward program
  • How to earn points
  • How to redeem points

We believe it's in businesses' best interest to make this data as widely available as possible so that the business can get more exposure and customers. Consequently, we treat this information as public and make it available to anyone on our site as well as make it available offsite to other companies such as search engines.
