Subject to applicable state and federal law, we may use your personal, demographic and profile information for marketing and promotional purposes, for editorial or feedback purposes, for statistical analysis and/or to assist us in improving the services we provide and our Websites. Information that is collected may be added to our databases to use in e-mails or postal mailings concerning upcoming events, new services and products, site updates and/or the status of online orders or accounts.
Should you decide to provide PII (including Sensitive Information), your information will be used in considering you for a Q Interactive account and may be shared with trusted third parties, credit bureaus, and/or other financial service providers in accordance with applicable law; and PII (excluding Sensitive Information) will be used to market products and services that may be of interest to you. We reserve the right to share, rent, sell or otherwise disclose your PII (other than your Sensitive Information) with/to third parties in accordance with applicable laws. These third parties may include, but are in no way limited to, providers of direct marketing services and applications (including lookup and reference, data enhancement, suppression and validation), e-mail marketers and telemarketers. The information we collect may be added to our databases and used for future e-mails and/or postal mailings concerning services, new products, updates, upcoming events, and/or the status of online orders and/or accounts.
By using either of the Websites, you are agreeing to be contacted in any manner contemplated in this section even if your number is found on a do-not-call registry or similar registry. The employment of other companies and/or individuals may be used to carry out certain functions on our behalf, such as analyzing data, sending electronic and direct mail, providing marketing analysis and removing duplicate information from customer lists. In order to perform their various functions for Q Interactive, these agents have access to our users’ personal information as needed.
Should you choose to provide Sensitive Information, such as your Social Security Number, your information may be used to determine your financial status. If such information is not provided, other information you that you have provided for the purpose of verifying your eligibility for participation in a program may be used.
By submitting your information on the Websites, you agree to receive mobile marketing from us and our third party advertisers and marketers. This will include, but is not limited to text-message based marketing. In the event that your mobile telephone number is listed on state and/or federal do-not-call registries, we retain the right with your consent to allow us to contact you via text-message based marketing. Furthermore, registration and/or using the Website, constitutes your acknowledgement that such registration constitutes an inquiry and/or application for purposes of the Amended Telemarketing Sales Rule (16 CFR Â§310 et seq.), as amended from time to time (the “Rule”). Even in the event that your telephone number is listed on the Federal Trade Commission’s Do-Not-Call List, we continue to retain the right and your consent to allow us to contact you via telemarketing in accordance with the Rule.
Q Interactive may collect non-personally identifiable information through the use of some or all of the following processes:
Usage Tracking: Q Interactive may track information that is related to the e-mail and web pages viewed by users, as well as hyperlinks that are clicked by users while viewing our e-mails and the pages on our Website.
Log Files: Log files may be used to track and monitor user activity on the Website.
Beacons: Q Interactive’s mailings may contain web beacons, or a piece of computer programming code that is used to associate a user’s interaction with our mailings, in order to tailor future campaigns to the user’s preferences. A web beacon, when loaded, is a small image that updates our database records. For example, if you receive an e-mail regarding car loans and open that message, the database will be updated via the web beacon to indicate your interest in future car loan promotions.
Q Interactive may also create reports on user demographics and usage patterns for our partners. This information allows our advertisers to market more effectively, and will allow our users to receive advertisements that are more pertinent to their interests.
Q Interactive reserves the right to provide aggregate or group data about our users for all lawful purposes. Aggregate or group data is data that describes the demographics, usage or characteristics of our participants as a group.
All collected information, including Sensitive Information, is stored in a technically and physically secure environment. When our registration/application process asks users to enter Sensitive Information, and when we store and transmit such Sensitive Information, that information is encrypted and is protected with SSL encryption software. While we use SSL encryption to protect Sensitive Information online, we also exercise commercially reasonable efforts to protect PII (including Sensitive Information) off-line. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Although, as a result, we strive to protect our customers’ PII, and we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information that you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk.
Once we receive the transmission of your PII, we make reasonable efforts to ensure that it remains secure on our systems. Access to this information is strictly limited, and not accessible to the public. All of our customers’ PII is restricted in our offices. Only the employees who need this information to perform a specific job (for example a customer service representative) will be granted access to your PII. Employees not adhering to our policies are subject to disciplinary action. In compliance with applicable federal and state law, we shall notify you and any applicable regulatory agencies in the event that we learn of an information security breach with respect to your PII. In the event of such a breach, you will be notified via e-mail. Please be advised that notice may be delayed in order to address the needs of law enforcement, determine the scope of network damage, and to engage in remedial measures.

Protecting children’s privacy is very important to us. We do not knowingly collect or maintain any information from our Websites from individuals that are under eighteen (18) years of age. No parts of our Websites are structured to attract anyone under the age of eighteen (18) years. If we determine that we have inadvertently collected PII from someone under eighteen (18) years of age, we will take reasonable steps to purge or suppress this information from our database. We encourage parents and guardians to spend time online with their children and to guide and monitor the Internet activities of their children.
