Uses of Personal Information

Savvy Penny uses the personal information we collect to provide the Service to you. We will not rent, sell or share your personal information with any other company for its own marketing purposes without your consent.

When we collect personal information from you it is because you are voluntarily submitting the information to us when you:

  • register as a Savvy Penny user;
  • enter a sweepstakes, contest, or promotion, whether sponsored by us or one of our partners;
  • sign up to receive coupon alerts or other offers;
  • request free samples of products; and / or
  • request assistance through Savvy Penny customer service.

We may also obtain personal information from reputable third parties and sources including public databases.

In order to offer you the best possible experience using the Service, we collect the following information:

  1. Information you provide:  When you download and/or use the Service, we may ask you for personal information, such as your name, mobile phone number, email address, zip code, age, gender, salary range, and such other information as may be requested from time to time. You may also have the opportunity to provide the email addresses or mobile phone numbers of friends or family members to tell them about the Service. We may combine the information we collect from you with information about you that we receive from other online and offline sources, such as from our merchant partners, in order to provide you with a better experience and to improve the quality of the Service. For certain services, we may give you the opportunity to opt out of our combining such information.

Certain Savvy Penny services may require our collection from you of the phone number and your unique bluetooth id for your device. Additionally, through the use of your mobile phone, we may collect your phone number and / or name. We may associate that information to the mobile device identification information and to other information we have collected from and about you; however, we will not use that number for telemarketing.
  3. Mobile device physical location:  Some mobile phone service providers are required to operate a system that will pinpoint the physical location of devices that use their service. Depending on the provider, Savvy Penny may automatically receive this information.
