Rakuten Cash Back Button Privacy Notice

Please carefully read this Rakuten Cash Back Button Privacy Notice before installing or using the Rakuten Cash Back Button (also referred to herein as our “browser extension”). This Rakuten Cash Back Button Privacy Notice, together with the Rakuten.com Terms and Conditions and Privacy Policy, which are hereby incorporated by reference, form a legally binding agreement (collectively, the “Agreement”) that governs your use of the Rakuten Cash Back Button provided by Ebates Performance Marketing, Inc. dba Rakuten Rewards (“Rakuten,” “we,” or “us”). By clicking the “Add to” or “Install” or similar buttons (as applicable), or by installing, activating, enabling, using, or otherwise accessing the Rakuten Cash Back Button, you acknowledge and accept the disclosures herein and agree to be bound by the Agreement. If you do not wish to be bound by the Agreement, do not click “Add” or “Install” and do not install, activate, enable, access, click, or otherwise use the Rakuten Cash Back Button.

1. Cash Back Shopping. The Rakuten Cash Back Button is a browser extension made available to enhance your shopping experience with www.rakuten.com by providing you with relevant offers and references displayed on your browser. When you visit certain sites, the Rakuten Cash Back Button may display Cash Back shopping opportunities and prompt you to start your Cash Back shopping session via www.rakuten.com. The Rakuten Cash Back Button may also alert you of a deal or offer available through www.rakuten.com with respect to a product or brand appearing in your search results or on other pages you visit across the web, and prompt you to start a shopping session at one of our merchants. If you start a shopping session using the Rakuten Cash Back Button, it will set a cookie on your computer through our affiliate network for the purpose of tracking your shopping session and crediting your Rakuten Cash Back reward — just as if you had begun your shopping experience via any of our links to merchant sites on www.rakuten.com. Please note, however, that if cookies or other similar tracking devices from other affiliate marketing companies related to that merchant are already present on your computer, the Rakuten Cash Back Button will not automatically overwrite those cookies or shopping session, but may still offer you the ability to start a Rakuten Cash Back rewards shopping session when you arrive at a merchant’s website.

2. Data Collection and Usage. When you are interacting with the Rakuten Cash Back Button, we will collect information about the coupons, deals, merchants, and offers you click on. The Rakuten Cash Back Button browser extension also has some functionality that does not depend upon your interaction with it. By installing our browser extension, you enable Rakuten to automatically collect information on the pages you visit on your browser so that we can surface relevant offers, such as when Cash Back or better deals are available with our merchants. Our browser extension may also collect information on the results pages of any searches you make so it can surface offers and deals where they are relevant (for example, we may display a Cash Back offer within a search engine results page that is related to those search results or a dining offer on a restaurant review website). Information collected by the browser extension for these purposes may include date and time of use, browser type, browser version, URLs of web pages visited, general information about the visited web page, product searches, product search results, information about products added to cart, and other product information.  The browser extension may also collect and use data, such as the order contents and order total, from order confirmation pages so we may confirm your Cash Back faster and more reliably. We do not intentionally collect nor use for this purpose other types of information that may be included on a merchant’s order confirmation page, such as your address or partial payment information, although this information may be incidentally captured to the limited extent it is displayed by the merchant. Any data collected by the Rakuten Cash Back Button will be used, stored, and/or disclosed in accordance with our Privacy Policy to enhance your www.rakuten.com shopping experience, such as for calculating and awarding your Cash Back faster and improving your experience with Rakuten and the Rakuten Cash Back Button.

3. Your choices. You may turn off certain Rakuten Cash Back Button activities by visiting the “Settings” option within the Rakuten Cash Back Button. You may also turn off all data collection by uninstalling the Rakuten Cash Back Button.

4. Updates We may update the Rakuten Cash Back Button when a new version is released or when new features are added. These updates occur automatically, but we will update this Rakuten Cash Back Button Privacy Notice in the event of a material change in the information being collected or a new use for collected information that is materially different from the uses described herein. We reserve the right to add features or functions to the Rakuten Cash Back Button but have no obligation to make available to you any subsequent versions or new features that may be included in some versions of the Rakuten Cash Back Button.

5. Third Party Components. Attribution notices for third party software that may be contained in portions of the Rakuten Cash Back Button are available here.
