When you visit our websites, we may collect personal information from or about you when it is entered, including but not limited to your name, portal login credentials, email address, mailing address, telephone number, IP address and transactional details. In certain situations as a member on an Augeo platform we may also collect payment card information, social security numbers, employment information or protected health information. We may also receive information about your transactions directly from your financial institution in order to process your rewards or redemption transactions.
We use the information discussed above in a number of ways, such as:
We may also use data that we collect on an aggregate or anonymous basis (such that it does not identify any individual customer, directly or indirectly) for various business purposes, where permissible under applicable laws and regulations.
We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as is necessary to perform the relevant processing activity, or as long as is set out in any relevant contract you hold with us. This is a case by case determination that depends on things like the nature of the data, why it is collected, why it is processed, and relevant legal or operation retention needs. For example, we may retain your data for as long as you hold a rewards account so that we may process and fulfill your future award transactions. We may also be legally required to hold some types of information to fulfil our statutory obligations. We review our retention periods for personal information on a regular basis. When the relevant processing activity has been completed, we may destroy your data, or alternatively anonymize the data in such a way that you are not personally identifiable, either directly or indirectly.
