By installing or upgrading the SavingStar Cashback Toolbar (the "Toolbar"), you understand and agree that the Toolbar collects and transmits to SavingStar and our third-party toolbar provider (Rakuten Loyalty, or “RLO”) certain information about your installation or upgrade, the internet browser, and your Toolbar settings. This information includes (i) a unique ID assigned to your Toolbar (the "Toolbar ID"); (ii) a unique ID (the "SavingStar ID") which is not your SavingStar account number, but is another number which may identify you personally to SavingStar but not to RLO; (iii) your computer's IP address, location, operating system; (iv) your internet browser (including the version and subversion) you are using (e.g., Internet Explorer or Safari); (v) product information about your Toolbar and its settings; (vi) the URL of the website from which you came (if any); and (vii) the date and time of your visit and its duration (collectively, the "Event Information"). RLO cannot use the SavingStar ID or the Toolbar ID to identify you personally, but may have information from another source which would allow it to personally identify you. If you do not understand and agree to the data collection and use standards set forth on this webpage, do not install or use the SavingStar CashBack Toolbar or any of its features.


The Toolbar also collects and transmits all search criteria you may submit in the Toolbar search box, along with the Event Information to SavingStar, RLO, and the Toolbar search provider, currently Yahoo!, (the “Search Provider”). If you accept SavingStar Search as your browser's default search provider (through the option provided on the Toolbar installation page), then the Toolbar also collects and transmits all search criteria you may submit in any browser search boxes or otherwise where the browser defaults to a search, along with the Event Information.


All search criteria you enter, along with the Event Information, may be used and/or disclosed by the Search Provider to provide the search results and as otherwise described in the Search Provider’s privacy policy with respect to its search services. Accordingly, you should use caution not to include in any search criteria any personal or other sensitive information, such as any financial or health information, since such information would be collected by RLO via the Toolbar and would be transmitted to, the Search Provider without any encryption or similar security. SavingStar, RLO and the Search Provider do not have any obligation to maintain this information in any confidential or secure manner, and you should not have any expectation to the contrary.


SavingStar may use all information collected and transmitted by the Toolbar and received by SavingStar to develop, offer, deliver, operate and improve the SavingStar website, services, and applications, for its own internal data analytical purposes, to understand how often SavingStar partner websites are visited, to offer products and services of our affiliates, participating companies, marketing partners and other companies, to process transactions in your accounts, to fulfill legal and regulatory requirements, and as otherwise permitted by applicable law.


The Toolbar generally collects and transmits the information described above to RLO (and as described, the Search Provider), which uses the information collected and transmitted by the Toolbar to help us provide services to you. RLO may also use non-personally identifiable information collected and transmitted by the Toolbar for its internal data analytical purposes and may share such information with SavingStar. As described above, the Toolbar also transmits your search criteria and Event Information to the Search Provider. The Search Provider may use and/or disclose such information to provide the search results and as otherwise described in its privacy policy.


The Toolbar collects and transmits the search results from searches conducted through the Toolbar and any Toolbar compatible search engine so that Toolbar may identify and highlight SavingStar partners in the search results. When you visit a website (regardless of whether you access such website via a Toolbar search), the Toolbar will review that website URL to determine if it is a SavingStar partner website and, if it is, the URL as well as the Event Information will be collected and transmitted to SavingStar, RLO in order to alert you to what steps you need to take, if any, to activate the SavingStar cash back rewards for eligible purchases, applications or other transactions made on that SavingStar partner website and process cash back earned by SavingStar registered users.. If you are a SavingStar registered user, you will be identified to the SavingStar partner as a SavingStar registered user via the SavingStar ID. The SavingStar partner cannot use the SavingStar ID to identify you personally, but may have information from another source (for example, if you provide your contact information in connection with your online purchases, applications or other transactions at the SavingStar partner's website or during any customer service process) which would allow it to personally identify you. In the event you make an online purchase, application or other transaction with the SavingStar partner, including through a secure session, SavingStar will receive information about your online purchase, application or transaction, including financial or health information if applicable to the transaction.


Based on your SavingStar CashBack Toolbar settings, information about the notifications delivered to you collected and transmitted by the Toolbar to SavingStar and RLO, and other information we learn about you, the SavingStar CashBack Toolbar may also provide notifications to you that suggest ways that you can get the most out of the SavingStar CashBack Toolbar and to deliver personalized offers. We also may collect information about your interaction with those suggestions, such as whether or not you clicked on a link presented in a notification.


For more information please see the Toolbar Privacy Statement. If you do not understand and agree to the data collection and use standards set forth on this webpage or the Toolbar Privacy Statement, do not install or use the SavingStar CashBack Toolbar or any of its features.
