Description of Cartbound Services: Cartbound offers a combination of services through the Cartbound Website and the Cartbound Shopping List.
Cartbound Website: The Cartbound Website provides you with information about our company, ability to download the Cartbound Shopping List, and a limited portal to Cartbound Data Services allowing you to access instantaneous pricing information for a wide range of product categories from a number of nationally recognized retailers.
Cartbound Shopping List: The Cartbound Shopping List is our free, proprietary software designed to help you compare products and prices while you shop online. The Cartbound Shopping List finds the product you are looking for and automatically searches for additional vendors offering the same product, availability, and potentially a better price for that product. The Cartbound Shopping List then displays the additional product prices as well as other product information. The Cartbound Shopping List also allows you to set up shopping lists, receive automatic pricing updates on particular products, and obtain special discounts on certain products.
In providing the services listed above, both the Cartbound Website and the Cartbound Shopping List send and receive pricing information stored in Cartbound Data Services. Cartbound Services only searches websites that we support. The list of websites that we support is contained on the Cartbound Website at http://www.cartbound.com/SupportedRetailers and is updated from time to time.
Information We Collect: Cartbound collects certain information about you when you use the Cartbound Website and Cartbound Shopping List.
Cartbound Website: When you visit the Cartbound Website, we collect log data from your visit that can include your IP address, the URL of the website you are visiting, general information about your browser and operating system, and product information from product searches that you perform while on the Cartbound Website. The log data that Cartbound collects is anonymous in that Cartbound does not link log data to any PII or use log data to attempt to determine a User's identity.
Cartbound Shopping List: If you choose to install the Cartbound Shopping List, or establish an account on the Cartbound Website, you will be asked to provide an email address, password, and your ZIP Code or postal code, which we will link to a unique identifier. We will use your unique identifier to collect information concerning your product-related searches and your responses to product promotions. In addition, in order to provide our users with access to the most up-to-date pricing information, we may use your IP address to query the websites that we support to gather pricing information for the products listed in the product categories at http://www.cartbound.com/SupportedRetailers.
If you choose to contact Cartbound support by any means of communication, install the Cartbound Shopping List, or establish an account on the Cartbound Website, you may be asked to provide PII such as your first and last name, home or physical address, ZIP Code or postal code, telephone number, and e-mail address. We may also ask for additional PII such as your company name, company telephone number or other personal information.
How We Use The Information We Collect: We use the information we collect from you to both provide the Cartbound Services to our users and to work with Providers.
Cartbound Services: We use the information that we collect from you to obtain and continually update product pricing information that we store as part of the Cartbound Data Services. This information allows us to provide users with a complete, real-time picture of the pricing and availability of products they are looking for as well as provide users with the ability to monitor online pricing. We also use the information we collect to analyze use of the Cartbound Service and update and customize these and other Cartbound services.
We may use your PII to deliver desired services and features to you, personalize content and offers that may be of interest to you, respond to your inquiries, and fulfill your request for products and services. Cartbound collects PII to allow the User to send queries and requests to Cartbound and for our representatives to get those queries and be able to respond to the sender by e-mail or phone. We will not share your PII with any third party, except if it is required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process. If required by law, any processing of PII performed by a Cartbound vendor will be governed by a data processing agreement.
Providers: We provide the anonymous information we collect from your use of the Cartbound Services with Providers. Cartbound does not place restrictions on our Providers' use of this anonymous information. Cartbound does not share PII collected from your use of the Cartbound Services, including email addresses, with Providers or other third parties unless you have a pre-existing relationship with such Provider or other third party (e.g., if you have already provided your PII to the Provider).
Accessing and Updating PII: You can review and make changes to your PII by logging into your account through the Cartbound Website or Cartbound Shopping List and reviewing and/or editing your account information. Should you have any questions concerning how to review and make changes to your PII, please contact Cartbound using the contact information provided below.
Protection of Information: Cartbound has implemented reasonable security policies, rules and technical measures to protect the privacy of your PII. We will make best efforts to ensure that your information will be accessible only by authorized employees or vendors of Cartbound and Providers who need to have access to this information in order to provide you with the Cartbound Services. However, you should be aware that there is no data that is transmitted over the Internet that can be guaranteed 100% secure in transmission or safe from theft or illegal capture, and therefore we do not guarantee absolute resistance from unauthorized access. In addition, while Cartbound attempts to link only to websites that we believe share our respect for privacy, please be aware that Cartbound is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of other websites.
Minors: Cartbound does not collect or maintain PII from individuals we know are under 13 (thirteen) years of age. If we obtain knowledge that a User of any Cartbound Service is under age 13, we will remove that User's PII from our databases and prevent the User from using any Cartbound Service in the future.
