Here at BlackFriday.fm we recognize that your privacy is very important, and to keep you informed about our privacy practices we ask that you please read the guidelines described below.

- Personal Information
During registration for membership, we may collect personal information such as your name, email address, birth date, gender, zip code, occupation, industry, and personal interests. For some financial products and services we may also ask for more information. We usually collect personal information directly from you although sometimes we may use agents or service providers to do this for us. When you are online, we collect information regarding the pages within our network that you visit. We may also acquire lists from other sources, both from other companies and from other public documents. For each visitor on our website, our web server automatically recognizes only the consumer's domain name, but not the e-mail address (where possible). We do not collect information on consumers who browse our website.
- Location Information
Use of our mobile application, BlackFriday.fm for android and iPhone, may, at your election, include location-based services. When you use the app, you may transmit information about your location to BlackFriday.fm. That information will be used to offer you deals and coupons that are close to your geographic location.
- Use of Information
The Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) of 1998 provides safeguards to protect children who use the internet by regulating the online collection of personal information from children under the age of 13. Because of these safeguards, children under the age of 13 are not able to access or use all products and services on BlackFriday.fm. For more information, see our Children's Policy.
- Use of Aggregate Data
We may collect certain non-personal information to optimize our website for your computer (e.g., the identity of your Internet browser, the type of operating system you use, your IP address, and the domain name of your Internet service provider). We may use such non-personal information for internal purposes, including but not limited to improving the content of our website. BlackFriday.fm may use personally identifiable information in aggregate form to improve our goods and services, including our website, and to make them more responsive to the needs of our customers. This statistical compilation and analysis of information may also be used by BlackFriday.fm, or provided to others as a summary report for marketing, advertising, or research purposes.
