What data we collect and why
In order to provide our products, Flipeer collects information that you share directly with us when you use our website, extension, or Mobile App. Though you don’t have to, you can choose to provide your email to set up an account with us, which lets you get a detailed study, and more. You can also set up your profile with your name and other info for a more personalized experience.
Flipeer also collects technical information about your device and use of Flipeer to make sure that our products are working correctly. The information we collect is geared to providing Flipeer members with a better study experience and to help us develop, improve, and market our services.
Account and Profile Information.
When you become a member of Flipeer, you share a limited amount of information during the registration process, optionally including your name, email address, member password and other registration information to personalize your profile.
As you continue to use Flipeer’s products, you might also provide information when you:
Fill up an offer form
Create a custom listing
communicate with Flipeer through email or other means
Flipeer automatically collects information to ensure that our products work correctly on different devices and browsers. This includes data like
the type of device you’re using
the device’s unique ID (where available)
This data allows us to make sure Flipeer products are working correctly, to make your experience better, and to detect and prevent fraud. Also, to help us coordinate our communications and marketing campaigns, and to understand how our users engage with our products, we use common digital tools that allow us to see if you opened an email we sent, visited a link in those emails, or generally interacted with Flipeer as a result of our marketing efforts.
Flipeer Pay Information.
For Members who choose to use Flipeer Pay, we will provide additional disclosures and ask for additional permissions when you sign up. Please note that Flipeer Pay is further subject to the Flipeer Pay Terms of Service as well as the terms and privacy policies of Flipeer Pay’s service providers.
How we share your data
We know how important your personal data is to you, so we will never sell it. We’ll only share it with your consent or in ways you’d expect (as we explain here). That means we will share your data if needed to complete your purchase, with businesses who help us operate Flipeer, or if we are legally required to do so.
We may also share information in the following cases:
with your express consent;
in an aggregate or anonymized format that does not identify any specific person;
as required by law, or to comply or respond to a valid government request;
when we believe in good faith that it’s necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, or investigate fraud; and
with a buyer or successor if Flipeer is involved in a merger, acquisition, or similar corporate transaction. If that happens, you will be notified via email and/or a prominent notice on the Website of any change in ownership, as well as any choices you will have as a result.
How we protect your data
The security of your information is important to us. We have a team dedicated to protecting your information and have put in place physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards.
These measures include limiting access, using encryption, testing for vulnerabilities, and more.
Though we hate to say it, despite our efforts, we can’t guarantee that user information will not be accessed, viewed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed as a result of a breach of any of our safeguards. You provide us with information at your own risk.
Flipeer only retains information about you as long as you keep using Flipeer. We’ll also keep information if we need it to meet our legal obligations and to defend against legal claims.
Some cookies can be temporary (“session cookies” like those used for navigating your browser) and disappear once you close it. Others last longer (“persistent cookies,” like when you ask a site to remember your login) and are saved to your computer until you delete them.
Our cookies serve several important functions:
Analytics: These types of cookies help Flipeer monitor the traffic and activity on our site, and to coordinate our own marketing campaigns. While they do not identify you specifically, they may be indirectly linked to your unique user ID. We aggregate and anonymize this data to help us detect fraud, understand trends, broad demographic data, and the general operation of our site.
Attribution: We use third-party pixels on our landing page to tell our advertising partners that someone found Flipeer through one of their ads. In addition. In these cases, Flipeer does not reveal any information that can be used to identify you.
If you want to disable cookies entirely, your browser or mobile device might have an option to do that. For more information, including instructions on disabling cookies, please visit: http://www.allaboutcookies.org/
Your choices for managing your data
We’ve made it easy to opt out of Flipeer’s products at any time.
You can uninstall the Add-in following the Install and manage Extensions in Chrome:
You can also uninstall the Flipeer Mobile App in the same way you would uninstall other mobile apps from your mobile device.
If you would like to delete your profile or personal information, you can always ask us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. We will delete any personal information we have, though we may still store some data in an aggregated and anonymized format that doesn’t identify you and can’t be attributed to you (or if we’re legally required).
Additional rights regarding your data
Depending on where you live, you may have additional rights as to the personal information that you share and Flipeer collects.
If you live in California and use Flipeer, you have some additional rights when it comes to your data.
Right to Delete: You can ask us to delete the personal information we have about you.
California law gives you the right to opt out of the sale of your personal information. But Flipeer does not and will not sell (or rent, or disclose for value) any of your personal information in the first place. So you’re good.
To exercise any of these rights, you (or your authorized agent) can contact us through email@example.com. We will confirm receipt of your request within 10 days, and will provide a response to you within 45 days of your request, though in some exceptional cases it might take longer (if that happens, we’ll let you know). We will need your name and email address to verify your request, and may also ask for additional information if necessary to verify the identity of the person making the request. We reserve the right to deny your request if we cannot verify your identity, or if an exemption applies (for example, where fulfilling your request would adversely affect other individuals, or where we have a conflicting legal obligation). That said, we will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your privacy rights.
To learn about the categories of personal information that Flipeer uses, please see the section of this policy called “What data we collect and why.” The personal information that we have collected in the past 12 months falls into the following categories as set out under California law:
The contact information you provide – California law refers to these as identifiers.
We don’t track your location, but your IP address gives us a general idea of the city, state, and country - what California law calls geolocation.
Shopping and Flipeer usage data – California law calls this internet activity.
To learn about the limited ways in which we disclose data for our business purposes -- that is, to a service provider -- and the categories of those service providers, please see the section of this policy called “How we share your data.”
Please note that, while Flipeer provides tools to manage your privacy as described in this policy, we do not support “Do Not Track” browser settings at this time.
We created Flipeer for the exclusive use of adults (18 and older). We don’t knowingly collect or solicit personal information from children. If you are a child under 18, please do not attempt to register for Flipeer’s products or send any personal information to us.
If we learn we have collected personal information from someone under 18, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you are a parent or guardian of a child who you think may have given us some personal information or posted information on any public portion of Flipeer’s products, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll help you remove it.
