COLLECTION: COLLECTION OF PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION (“PII”) BY SMARTSOURCE
General. SmartSource collects PII in order to create or enhance our relationship with you. The types of PII that may be collected include: name, e-mail address, street address, telephone numbers, birth date, gender, salary range, and such other information as may be requested from time to time.
When we collect PII from you it is because you are voluntarily submitting the information to us when you  register as a SmartSource user;  enter a sweepstakes, contest, or promotion, whether sponsored by us or one of our partners;  sign up to receive New Coupon Alerts or other offers;  request free samples of products; and/or  request assistance through the SmartSource customer service. We may also obtain PII from reputable third parties and sources including public databases.
Cookies. Cookies are small bits of information that the SmartSource website places on the hard drive of your computer. Cookies remember information about your activities on the SmartSource website and enable SmartSource to make your visits to the SmartSource website more enjoyable. For example, cookies can store your password for easy logon to a site you have previously visited, or can save your preferences for a personalized home page. Information about your activities on the SmartSource website and other non-personally identifiable information about you may also be used to limit the online ads you encounter to those we believe are consistent with your interests.
Additionally, SmartSource’s services (or third-party servers) may collect certain information about SmartSource website visitors automatically for site maintenance, optimization, security, and other legal permissible purposes. Such information may include such visitors’ IP address, browser type, date, time, and duration of visit, and particular pages viewed.
NOTICE: SMARTSOURCE WILL PROVIDE YOU WITH NOTICE ABOUT ITS PII COLLECTION PRACTICES
When you voluntarily provide PII to SmartSource, we will make sure you are informed about who is collecting the information, how and why the information is being collected, and the types of uses SmartSource will make of the information. At the time you provide your PII, SmartSource will notify you of your options regarding our use of your PII, including whether we will share it with outside companies. (See “Choice” below.)
This Policy describes the types of other companies that may want to send you information about their products and services and therefore want to share your PII, provided you have given SmartSource permission to do so. (See “Use” below.)
Sometimes we collect PII from consumers in manual format or off-line, such as a post card or subscription form. Providing detailed notice in those situations often proves impractical, so consumers will instead be provided with a short notice that describes how to obtain the full text of this Policy and other relevant information from us.
The SmartSource website may also be linked to sites operated by companies affiliated with SmartSource (i.e., that are part of the News America Group). Although News America Group entities adhere to the Group’s Privacy Principles, visitors to those affiliated sites should still refer to their separate privacy policies and practices, which may differ in some respects from this Policy.
Some of the advertisements that appear on the SmartSource website are delivered to you by national Internet advertising companies. These companies utilize certain technologies to deliver advertisements and marketing messages and to collect anonymous information about your visit to the SmartSource website, including information about the ads they display, via a cookie placed in your computer that reads (or approximates) your IP address. To opt out of information collection by these companies, or to obtain information about the technologies they use or their own privacy policies, please visit:
CHOICE: SMARTSOURCE WILL PROVIDE YOU WITH CHOICES ABOUT THE USE OF YOUR PII
SmartSource will not use the PII you provide to us for purposes different from the purpose for which it was submitted, or share your PII with third parties that are not affiliated with SmartSource (i.e., not part of the News America Group), unless we obtain your permission.
USE: SMARTSOURCE’S USE OF PII
SmartSource will use the PII you provide in a manner that is consistent with this Policy. If SmartSource obtains PII from a third party, such as a business partner, our use of that information is governed by this Policy.
We may share your PII with companies that are affiliated with us, that is are part of the News America Group of companies. And provided you have given us permission, SmartSource may share your PII with advertisers and business partners that are not affiliated with SmartSource, but would like to send you information about their products and services. For example, if you enter a sweepstakes promotion hosted by SmartSource.com, we may share the information you submit on the sweepstakes entry form with our sweepstakes partners and prize sponsors. SmartSource offers may be available on a variety of partner websites. In those instances where SmartSource offers are incorporated into a partner’s website (i.e., “micro-sited”) and where registration is required in order to receive those offers, your PII may be shared with that partner. However, you will always have the opportunity to instruct us not to share your information with third parties when PII is collected.
SmartSource employees, agents, and contractors must have a legitimate business reason to obtain access to your PII. SmartSource may share your PII with outside contractors or agents who help us manage our information activities (i.e., sweepstakes administration, order fulfillment, or statistical analyses), but they may only use your PII to provide SmartSource with a specific service and not for any other purpose.
SmartSource may also enter into agreements with outside companies that possess the technology that allows SmartSource to customize the advertising and marketing messages you receive on our websites. Your non-PII and click stream data about your activities on our sites may be shared with these companies so this customization can be accomplished. These companies will not share your information with any third party or use it for any other purpose. Anonymous click stream and demographic information may also be shared with SmartSource’s advertisers and business partners.
There may be instances when SmartSource may disclose PII without providing you with a choice in order to protect the legal rights of SmartSource, other companies within the News America Group or their employees, agents and contractors; to protect the safety and security of visitors to our websites; to protect against fraud or for risk management purposes; or to comply with the law or legal process. In addition, if SmartSource sells all or part of its business or makes a sale or transfer of assets or is otherwise involved in a merger or business transfer, SmartSource may transfer your PII to a third party as part of that transaction.
SECURITY: SMARTSOURCE PROTECTS THE SECURITY OF PII
SmartSource uses reasonable administrative, technical, personnel, and physical measures to safeguard PII in its possession against loss, theft, and unauthorized use, disclosure or modification. In addition, SmartSource uses reasonable methods to make sure that PII is accurate, up-to-date and appropriately complete.
ACCESS: HOW TO ACCESS, CORRECT OR DELETE YOUR PII
Whenever possible, visitors to the SmartSource website may review the PII they have provided to us in our records. We will take reasonable steps to correct any PII a visitor informs us is incorrect.
If you ask SmartSource to stop using your PII, SmartSource will honor that request while retaining any record of your PII that is necessary to comply with applicable federal, state, or local law.
