AppCard usage of the Information received/collected
Personal Information: We will use and store Personal Information to deliver the Service to you, to allow Merchants to accept AppCard as a loyalty program identifier, to redeem cash-backs, to deliver Program information to you (as applicable), to market the Service and other products or services that may to be interest to you, to improve our products and services, and for the internal operational and administrative purposes of the Service.
Aggregate Information: We will also use Personal Information and Web Tracking Information, and other information (including information from online and offline third party sources) to create aggregated data for analytical and other purposes. This aggregate statistical information does not contain any information in a form that specifically identifies you. It is used in a variety of ways, including to allow us to understand our customer base and to better serve our market.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information: AppCard may freely use Web Tracking Information and other Non-Personally Identifiable Information in connection with Service, including: to administer the Service, to understand how well our Service is working, to market the Service and other products and services, to develop aggregate, statistical information on usage of the Service and to generally improve the Service.

If you wish to opt out of promotional emails, you may do so by following the "unsubscribe" instructions in the email, or by editing your account settings. All users receive administrative emails.
