3. Who does Greenredeem share your information with and why?
Greenredeem is not in the business of selling your information. We consider this information to be a vital part of our relationship with you. There are, however, certain circumstances in which we may share your PII with certain third parties with or without further notice to you, as set forth below:
With your Consent: We may share or disclose your PII or programme activity with third parties with your express consent. Should an event arise which we deem appropriate to obtain your express consent, we will contact you directly using the contact information we have on file for you. It is important that you maintain all your information with us current and accurate.
Law and Harm: We may disclose your PII if we are required to comply with a law, regulation or legal request; to protect the safety of any of our Site users, any person or the general public; to address fraud, security or technical issues; or to protect Greenredeem's rights or property.
Service Providers: Greenredeem, like many businesses, sometimes hires other companies to perform certain business-related functions (e.g. mailing campaigns to customers, maintaining databases and processing payments). When we employ the services of another company to perform a function of this nature, we only provide them with the information that they need to perform their specific function(s) and require that they in turn gain access only after agreeing to maintain this information in confidentiality and use it only for the limited purpose of providing the services contracted by Greenredeem. Greenredeem may also share information provided with other companies within the Grundon Waste Management group.
Advertisers: We may provide aggregate anonymous information concerning member usage of our Site to third parties, such as in the case of advertisers, for purposes we deem, in our sole discretion, to be appropriate regarding our Rewards Programme. This information would include, but is not limited to, anonymised web metrics showing aggregate number of visits, aggregate number of page views, aggregate time on site and aggregate number of advertising impressions
Recycling Programmes/ Water efficiency programmes/Non-Personal Aggregate Data: In order to participate in any of our Recycling and Waste Minimisation Programmes, Greenredeem will record household recycling habits, redemption habits, and other information about you associated with our Programmes. For example, we may record the frequency with which you recycle and the weight or volume of the materials you recycle. We may disclose individual level data corresponding to your address and location to local authorities or collection providers in order to service your account; otherwise, only aggregate information is shared with the local authority.
In order to participate in any of our Water efficiency Programmes, Greenredeem will record household water usage, redemption habits, and other information about you associated with our Programmes, and analyse this to better understand consumer behaviour. For example, Greenredeem may compare the total water usage in your household to the number of people living there, to work out per capita consumption. By analyzing per capita consumption across a number of households we will be able to send you hints & tips on water saving that are relevant to the number of people living in your household, should they be required.
4. How can you change your privacy preferences or account information?
If, at any point during your membership with Greenredeem, you decide that you do not wish to receive specific programme notices or messages, you can update your account profile and communication preferences at any time through the Site or by contacting Greenredeem's Customer Care department as indicated below under "Contact Us".
We encourage you to keep your information with us current and up to date. You can make corrections, updates or deletions to your account information by accessing your online profile and visiting the "My Account" Section of the Site.
5. What information is collected through integration with third party services?
Social Networking Sites: One of the special features of this Site and the Greenredeem Rewards Programmes is that we enable you to log in to your online profile with us via various online third party services, such as social media and social networking services like Facebook and Twitter. By directly integrating our services with other online third party services, we make your online experience richer and more personalised. To take advantage of this feature we will ask you to log in to the relevant social networking service. When you add any social networking service to your Greenredeem online profile or log into this Site through your other social networking account(s), Greenredeem will collect relevant information necessary to enable this Site to access and collect your data contained within that particular social networking service (e.g. such as your Facebook profile information). Please remember however that the manner in which such third party social network provider uses, stores and discloses your information is governed solely by that provider's policies, and Greenredeem will have no liability or responsibility for the privacy practices or other actions of any third party site or provider that you may enable and link to your online experience with Greenredeem.
Greenredeem Rewards Programme Sponsors: A key component of the Rewards Programme is the member being able to earn and redeem Reward Points with featured sponsors. These featured sponsors are linked to our Rewards Programme both outside and through our Site and integrated into member accounts to allow for maximum member ease in both earning and redeeming Rewards Points. This integration of featured sponsors does include Greenredeem making available certain aggregated member information which is anonymous as to any specific member. This allows Greenredeem to continue to incentivize members to engage in its Rewards Programme while also maintaining individual member PII confidentiality.
6. Third party links and websites:
7. Are there any other issues to consider?

However, no Internet or e-mail transmission is ever fully secure or error free. In particular, e-mail sent to or from this Site may not be secure.

When a member opts to close their account, all transactional data relating to that account will be stored, but anonymized in such a way that it can no longer be attributed to the member that generated the aforementioned transactions. This transactional information will then be stored at an anonymized state for 3 years upon which the future storage of deleted member data will be reviewed.
