Privacy Policy


Posted July 23, 2020 by GottaDEAL Staff

GottaDEAL ("OlsonNet, LLC", “we,” “us,” or “our”) values its users’ privacy on the GottaDEAL web site (GottaDeal.com), forums, mobile site and apps (collectively, the “Properties”). This Privacy Policy pertains to our Properties, the services that we offer on our Properties and your interactions with us outside our Properties (collectively, the “Services”). We have implemented this Privacy Policy to provide you with information about how GottaDEAL collects, uses, and discloses information about you. By visiting our Properties or using our Services in any other way, you are agreeing to the practices described in this Privacy Policy.

What Types of Personal Information Does GottaDEAL Collect from Me?

GottaDEAL will collect the personal information you provide to us, for example when you register, take a survey, sign up for notifications, participate in a sweepstakes, email us or otherwise send us your contact information. Personal information may include your name, email address, phone number, mailing and/or billing address, and other information that identifies you as an individual. You can use some of the Services without providing these types of personal information, but certain features may not be available. If you would like to update these types of personal information that you previously provided to us, you can email us at info@gottadeal.com.

Each time you use our Services, GottaDEAL also collects other, technical information, which may be combined with other information we collect about you. This technical information includes, for example, your browser type, the URL of the previous web site you visited, your Internet Service Provider, your operating system, and your IP address. We may use cookies, web beacons, and similar technologies to collect such information as described below. We also use analytics and reporting technologies to collect records of your browsing and activities when using our Services, as well as other usage information such as your clickstream patterns, your preferences, and the dates and times that you use our Services.

If you receive email or texts from us, we will analyze related information such as whether you open the email or read the text, and whether you click on an ad or offer in the email or text.

If you log in via a third-party service like Facebook or Google, we will collect the information described in the third-party service’s request for authorization. This information may include your name, email address, gender, city, and state. You should review your privacy settings with these third-party services to be sure you are only sharing information you wish to share.

We may obtain additional personal and other information about you from third parties and combine it with the information that we collect from you.

What About Cookies and Web Beacons?

In addition, GottaDEAL (and our third-party service providers) use “cookies,” a small data string our server writes to your computer, and other similar technologies to help us manage and analyze your interaction with our Services. These technologies can store information that we collect about you, and can collect information linked to your browser or device that we use for a number of purposes, including improving our Services, keeping count of return visits to our Properties or our advertisers’ or partners’ websites, collecting and reporting statistical information about our users, saving your password and login information, displaying advertising or content based on your interests (as further described below), and learning about how you interact with email or text messages and advertising content. We may also collect information about your search criteria and results, the date and time of your visit to our Properties, and your connection speed and IP address. Cookies may store information that identifies your device, like a hashed email address, but we do not use cookies to store individual identifiers like your name.

Third parties whose products or services are accessible or advertised via our Services may also use cookies on our Properties, and we encourage you to check their privacy policies for information about their information privacy practices.

You may be able to refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser; however, refusing to receive cookies will not stop all data collection and may prevent you from being able to use the full functionality of our Services.

Additionally, emails we send may contain a bit of code known as a “web beacon.” This code allows us to understand the time and date when you open an email and when you use a link within the email to visit a website. If you wish to disable our web beacons, you can do so by turning images “off” in your email software (e.g., Outlook, Outlook Express). Please see your email software instructions or “Help” for more information.

Do Third Parties Collect My Information?

We use analytics services provided by third parties such as Google. These companies use cookies and other technologies to collect data about your use of our Properties and other websites over time. This information will be transmitted to and stored by our analytics providers, who will use this information for purposes such as evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators, providing GottaDEAL with information for customer service and product development purposes, and providing other services relating to activity on our Properties and internet usage. These providers may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on their behalf. To learn more about how Google collects and processes data and the choices Google may offer to control these activities, you may visit https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/partners/.

Please see below for information on how third parties may collect and use information on our Properties for interest-based advertising purposes, and for information on how GottaDEAL may share the information that we collect with third parties.

You may be able to access third-party offers, ads, websites, mobile sites and/or apps directly from links on the Services and/or from emails or texts sent by or on behalf of GottaDEAL. When you click on these links, GottaDEAL may provide information to third parties, third parties may collect information directly, and you may also have opportunities to provide personal information to such third parties. This Privacy Policy does not apply to the information collected by third parties when you click on their links or otherwise access their properties. We cannot control the privacy practices of third-party properties, and we are not responsible for such practices. We encourage you to carefully review the privacy policy of any third-party properties you visit or ads that you respond to, before disclosing any information to the providers of such properties.

    We may share your information in connection with an actual or potential merger, sale, acquisition, assignment, or transfer of all or part of GottaDEAL’s assets, affiliates, lines of business, or products, including at bankruptcy.

To the extent permitted by applicable law, we may share information that identifies your browser or device over time (including device identifiers and/or other types of personal information that has been hashed or obfuscated) as well as information about your activities on our Services, with third-party companies for their own purposes including interest-based advertising across different websites, apps, browsers and devices. Please see below for information about opting out of the collection and use of data for interest-based advertising by companies participating in industry self-regulation, and for California residents you can also visit the “California Privacy Rights” section below to learn about our practices and your choices.

Marketing Choices

GottaDEAL may send you email offers that we believe will interest you. If you do not want to receive such offers, you can unsubscribe at any time using the link included in any message. We will continue to send you servicing emails related to your interactions and relationship with us.

Interest-Based Advertising Choices

GottaDEAL adheres to the Digital Advertising Alliance (“DAA”) Self-Regulatory Principles. We use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you use our Services, including viewing our emails or texts, and to serve ads on our behalf on non-affiliated properties. These companies may use cookies or other non-cookie technologies to collect information about your visits and activities on our Services, other online properties, and email and text campaigns over time and across different browsers and devices, in order to provide advertisements for us and others about goods and services of interest to you. This type of advertising is called interest-based advertising. The information collected by these third parties may include information about your browser or device including information that identifies your browser or device over time (including device identifiers and/or personal information which has been hashed or obfuscated).

You may visit http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp and https://www.aboutads.info to learn more about interest-based advertising, to opt-out of this form of advertising on your web browser by companies participating in the Network Advertising Initiative and DAA self-regulatory programs, and to learn about the effect of an opt-out choice.

You may also limit data collection and use by third parties for interest-based advertising by using your mobile device settings where available.

Security

GottaDEAL uses commercially reasonable administrative, technical, and physical measures to protect your personal information.

California Residents

If you are a California resident, you may (i) obtain certain information regarding our disclosure of your Personal Information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes, and/or (ii) at any time opt-out of receiving promotional communications from us and/or request that we discontinue providing any of your Personal Information to unaffiliated third parties, in each case by sending an email to info@gottadeal.com. Please note that if you decide to opt-out of receiving promotional information or request that we discontinue providing your Personal Information, your change in preference will only affect future contacts; if the information already has been provided to third parties, they may continue to use it.

Users from other countries should note that GottaDEAL collects, processes and stores information in the United States. By using our Services from locations outside of the United States, you consent to the transfer of your personal information to, and the collection and processing of such personal information in the United States. The laws pertaining to the collection, use, disclosure, and processing of personal information in the United States may vary from those in other countries and may be less stringent than the applicable laws in your state or country.
