The Treat Me website is owned and operated by Retail Works Limited ('we', 'us', 'RWL'). We have a firm commitment to privacy. This document discloses our information gathering and usage practices in relation to the Treat Me website. For additional information about the Treat Me website, please review our Terms and Conditions.
Use of your information
We collect personal information about you through your use of Treat Me, including your registration details and information relating to your use of the website and the content you access.
We may use this personal information to help us provide the Service to you, to verify your identity, to enforce or apply our terms and conditions, to protect the rights, property, or safety of RWL, our users, or others, for research purposes, and for any other use that you authorise.
We do not sell or rent your personal information to third parties.
We release account and other personal information only when we believe release is appropriate for legal compliance and law enforcement (including to government agencies with statutory law enforcement responsibilities); to facilitate court proceedings; enforce or apply our terms and conditions; or protect the rights, property, or safety of RWL, our users, or others. You can contact us to ask whether such information has been provided.
In the event that we sell the Treat Me business, your membership details will be provided to the new owner to ensure you can continue using the Service. In this event, we will email you in advance, advising of the change, and explain how you can update or remove your details.
Our site's registration process requires you to provide us with your name and contact information and may also require demographic information. We may also use your contact information to contact you, send you information about our Service, our company and promotional material from some of our affiliated partners.
Updating your account information
We provide you with ways in which you can update your personal account information, including changing your email address, password, etc. We store previous email addresses against your profile to ensure compliance with our Terms and Conditions.
We may send you emails about Treat Me Deals and other relevant email correspondence. It is our policy to immediately remove any member from any mailing list upon the member's request.
We use email as a means of receiving feedback from our members, and we encourage you to email us with your questions or comments.
Treat Me users may be able to connect their Facebook account using Facebook Connect. By allowing access to your Facebook account, your basic information, and other profile data may be shared with us.

Treat Me users may be able to share Deals on their Twitter accounts. By sharing Deals and interacting on Twitter we may monitor this publically available activity and information.
Vouchers purchased on Treat Me may be accessed in the 'My Vouchers' section of the website. Vouchers may be emailed to the email address entered upon registration as a Treat Me user.
Your name, or the recipient's name or if you purchase a Voucher for a gift, will be printed on the Voucher and provided to the advertiser of the relevant Deal.
Control of your password
It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Ensure you logout when you have finished visiting the website, especially if you access the website from a shared computer.
Credit card security
We work diligently to protect the security of your personal information, including credit card information.
We automatically save your credit card details on your account for ease of payment for each Deal transaction. Your credit card details are encrypted and securely stored by DPS, and you can remove your credit card details on your account at any time.
We use "session" cookies to temporarily store information to help you use the website. This information is used to deliver the right content to you as you use the website and avoids unnecessarily asking you to log in. Session cookies expire immediately when you close your web browser or are deleted after 30 minutes of no activity on Treat Me.
We also use "persistent" cookies to personalise the user experience, to help protect our members and to provide us with research information (such as how often members visit Treat Me each month). Persistent cookies allow us to track users on Treat Me and help us identify users abusing the Treat Me Service. A persistent auto-login cookie is also stored when Treat Me users select the "remember me" option when logging in. The auto-login cookie is removed when the Treat Me user logs out.
Advertising and third party links
Some Treat Me advertisers may request information directly from users, or link to sites that do so. RWL has no control over its advertisers' privacy policies, and encourages users to review such policies prior to submitting any personal information to them.
The Treat Me website may contain non-advertising links to third party sites to enhance the member experience. We have no control of either the content or privacy policies of such sites, nor should such links be considered an endorsement of these sites except where otherwise noted.
Other information we collect
We use additional information to do internal research on our users' demographics, interests, and behaviour to better understand and serve you and our community. This information may include the URL that you just came from (whether this URL is on our site or not), which URL you next go to (whether this URL is on our site or not), what browser you are using, and your IP address.
Users who login may have their IP addresses recorded. This information will only be provided to legal authorities in cases of suspected fraud or for law enforcement purposes. This information is stored securely and will not be provided to other members or non-authorised parties.
If you choose to discuss the deal on the Treat Me Discussion Board, we will collect that information you write on the Discussion Board.
If you send us personal correspondence, such as emails or letters, or if other users or third parties send us correspondence about your activities or postings on the Treat Me Discussion Board, we may collect such information into a file specific to you.
Treat Me membership removal
If you wish to have your registration removed from our directory for any reason, you may send us an email requesting this.
Internet statistics – Google Analytics
We use Google Analytics to collect information about use of the site, such as the number of visitors per day or the number of pages requested per day. To do this, we have a small piece of code on each page which counts these statistics.
For more information, view Google Analytics terms of service.
If you accept that Treat Me can send you "Push Notifications", you agree to receive Treat Me notifications even if your Treat Me iPhone app is not running. "Push Notifications" can be configured in Settings.
RWL may use a third party application to collect mobile data for performance analysis, usage behaviour, technical information about your mobile device, firmware and carrier etc. This information is confidential and available only to RWL in an aggregate form and individual user data is not identifiable. The data collected allows RWL to continue to develop an application that is suitable to members' needs.
