It would be helpful to start by identifying what this policy is and what it is not. This Policy is a code of conduct and an internal regulation that we circulate to the principals, employees, directors, service providers and shareholders of Offerna LLC so as to inform them of what we deem acceptable or unacceptable actions when it comes to handling the User Information. This Policy also aims at letting you know how we operate certain aspects of our website that store User Information and the fact that you may, through our website interact with third parties who may come to contact with User Information.
This Policy is not a legally binding agreement, a unilateral undertaking a representation or a warranty of any type to be given to users, government agencies, natural or juristic persons of any type or capacity.
We have the full right and discretion to decide on the appropriate consequence for our stakeholders' commitment or breach of this Policy we also reserve the right to maintain such consequences as a confidential matter or to make it public information.
The reason why we receive User Information is to enable us to provide services through our website to our end users. Such information would contain inter alia information that enable us to identify our clients and be able to transact with them pursuant to applicable laws such as information pertaining to age which enables us to determine the capacity of our client to enter into a legally binding agreement, information required to enable our users to access our website repeatedly such as the user name and password as well as the email address which is used to manage the user account, especially, in those cases of forgotten log in names and passwords, information to enable us to transact with the client such as the preferred payment method, information required to provide the services to our clients such as the email address, physical address, mobile number which are used to send vouchers, billing and collection. Other information relate to user preferences and general interests which is a key element in our strategy to enable us to find the best possible promotions to match our clients' expectations and communicate those as effectively as possible.
User Information generally excludes the information that we deduce,
compile or extract whether by ourselves or through the use of third
party service providers, such information is generally based on
analysis of the data that we collect from various sources as well as
statistics and deductions.
We are bound by the rules of applicable laws with respect to handling private and personal data of Internet users.
As a general rule, User Information are handled electronically and are not accessible to stakeholders in the context of day to day operation in our company. We do not share User Information whether with our stakeholders or with third parties. We, however, cooperate with law enforcement agencies and all the authorities that have proper jurisdiction to request User Information in the context of law enforcement operations and investigations that pertain to public interest, criminal or civil actions, public safety and crime prevention and fighting.
We will use User Information to tailor offers that best match our users' interests, habits and demographics and we will use our analysis to approach existing and new providers with our findings so that we would increase offers presented through our website and solicit new ones. In approaching providers, we shall use statistics and information derived from User Information, however User Information will not be conveyed to providers.
The security of User Information is important to us. We ensure that the providers of payment services encrypt credit card information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). Other service providers that we use for collection services other than online credit card usage are either bound by a confidentiality undertaking not to use or dispose of User Information or are bound by other industry standard documents that ensure user privacy and the security of User Information.
We will follow generally accepted industry standards to protect User Information. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is fully secure, however, we will continuously try to use and implement commercially acceptable means to protect User Information in order to ensure the continuity of our service and the privacy of our users.
User Information is considered as a key asset in most Internet based businesses, as a company, we may always be subject to transactions involving our assets and our equity including mergers, subdivisions or acquisition by third party; User Information is key in valuations that take place prior to such actions and are one of the key assets transferred once those transactions have taken place. We will ensure that our legal successors treat User Information in the same manner that we do and continue to develop and implement methods to better protect them.
Users of our service will be given the option either to alter User Information provided always that the alteration is lawful and does not entail any fraudulent behavior or request the deletion of same entirely and we will comply with such requests to the best of our ability observing solid commercial sense.

Our website is still usable even if cookies are rejected, however, the actual experience may vary depending on whether or not a user accepts cookies.
We also employ a software technology called clear gifs which is also known as Web Beacons or Web Bugs, that help us better manage content on our site by informing us what content is effective. Clear gifs are minute graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of Internet users.

We wish to remind our users that we are only able to control our operation methods, however, you will directly interact with our providers who will have their own policies to handle your information. You should always exercise due care whenever you give out your information.
