Information We Collect and How We Use It
Our vision is to maximize your rewards and to provide you with as many member benefits as possible. The key way in which we provide value is to share with you the commissions we receive from our merchant partners in the form of Cash Back. We strive to confirm and pay your Cash Back quickly and reliably, and to improve your experience on our site and in our applications – these are the main reasons we collect information.
When you become a member of Sqzs.com, we collect your name, email address, and physical address ("Personal Information"). We use your Personal Information to track and send you Cash Back payments and generally to improve and personalize our services. We also collect non-personal information pertaining to our merchant partners you visit, the purchases you make, and the offers you view ("Transaction Information"). We use Transaction Information to process your Cash Back faster and more reliably, as well as to provide more relevant offers for you when you visit us or use our applications and services.
