Personal Information

“Personal Information” is information that can be directly associated with a specific person or entity such as a customer’s name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, credit card number, or information about activities directly linked to that person, such as his or her purchases. Personal Information also includes information that you may choose to provide to us, such as your educational, consumer and employment history profile. We collect Personal Information that you provide to us, such as when you register for Royal Engine, provide Royal Engine with any information or otherwise contact us, when you use any loyalty rewards or plans that Royal Engine makes available, or when you take any consumer actions with respect to participating vendors (including making purchases or entering the physical location of such vendor).

If you choose to provide Personal Information to us, we will not share this information with third parties or other Royal Engine users without your explicit permission, except when required by law, regulation, subpoena or court order or as expressly set forth herein.

We may use Personal Information internally – for example, to process your visits and provide you with reliable loyalty plans and rewards and to tell you about specific goods and services we believe will be of interest to you. If you prefer not to receive promotional information from us, we make it easy for you to let us know. You can contact us at any time to decline promotional information by emailing us at v@bdroyalengine.co.za. We may also contact you periodically in order to provide you with service announcements regarding Royal Engine, but these messages will not contain promotional information. In addition, we use Personal Information to diagnose problems with our servers, to make Royal Engine more useful and to customize Royal Engine and personalize its content for you.

Location-Based Services

The Application may provide Royal Engine with information regarding your actual location. Royal Engine will collect this information only if you allow the Application to access your location through your mobile device. Royal Engine uses this data for anonymous statistical purposes (see below under “Statistical Information”). If you choose to make your visit available to Vendors, Royal Engine will also notify the applicable Vendor when you are present in the physical location of such Vendor. Royal Engine may provide you with different options for providing such location information to Vendors, and you may change your selection at any time by accessing the Profile tab of the Application. Except as anonymized statistical information or to Vendors (if you consent), Royal Engine will not share your location with any third party.

Vendors

Royal Engine offers you to register using a “Royal Engine username” or using a third party service (e.g. facebook). Royal Engine does not provide participating vendors with your phone number or email address, or any other means of contacting you directly except through the Royal Engine system.If you have registered using a third party service – Royal Engine will keep follow the privacy policy of the third party service. Royal Engine’s business, however, is to provide you with loyalty plans and rewards that enhance your shopping and consumer experience. In order to achieve this goal, Royal Engine provides vendors that you specify with some of your Personal Information, including your past shopping and/or visit history and (if you consent) if you are physically located at such vendor’s store location (see above under the heading “Location-Based Services”). Any personal information you provide to a vendor or any other third party is provided directly to this third-party and is subject to that third party’s provider’s privacy policy. Except as described above, Royal Engine is not responsible for the content or privacy practices of participating vendors or other third parties. We encourage you to learn about the privacy practices of vendors or other third parties before providing them with personal information.
