Your use of the Services, now or in the future, also indicates acceptance of the then-current Terms of Service. These Terms of Service incorporate by reference applicable program, subscription, activation, ordering, and pricing terms provided to you online or offline for the Services selected by you, and documentation and posted guidelines for the Deductr services you select, all of which comprise a binding legal agreement and govern your use of this website and the online services to which you are granted access hereunder. You agree to abide by all of the Terms of Service, as the same may be revised from time to time.

At Deductr, our most important asset is our relationship with you. Deductr is committed to maintaining the confidentiality, integrity and security of any personal information about our users. We are proud of our privacy practices and the strength of our site security and want you to know how we protect your information and use it to provide to you the service on Deductr.com (the "Service"). Deductr stresses its privacy and security standards to guard against identity theft and provide security for your account information and other data. We regularly re-evaluate our privacy and security policies and adapt them as necessary to deal with new challenges.
Simply put, we do not and will not sell or rent your personal information to anyone, for any reason, at any time.
Certain areas and features of Deductr.com are available to you without registration or the need to provide to us any information. However, in order to benefit from the full functionality of the Service, you need to register as a member and in so doing, to provide a user-defined Login ID, password, email address (collectively the “Login Information”), and billing information. Credit card numbers are not stored in the Deductr database. They are stored under the security of Authorize.net.
Access to your Login Information is strictly restricted to Deductr employees and contractors, as needed, in order to operate, develop or improve the Service. These individuals have been subject to prior background checks and are bound by confidentiality obligations. They may be subject to discipline, including termination and criminal prosecution, if they fail to meet these obligations.
Deductr requires an email address from you in the following circumstances:

This information may be used, for example, to alert you to software compatibility issues, or it may be analyzed to improve our Web design and functionality.
Deductr may present links in a format that enables us to keep track of whether these links have been followed and whether any action has been taken on a third party Website. We use this information to improve the quality of the Deductr Offers and customized content on the Service.
If you use a bulletin board, blog, or chat room on this Website, you should be aware that any personally identifiable information you submit there can be read, collected, or used by other users of these forums, and could be used to send you unsolicited messages.

Any information submitted in connection with such activities will be treated in accordance with this Privacy and Security Policy. From time to time, Deductr may also ask you to participate in surveys designed to help Deductr improve the Website.

Deductr may aggregate survey data and disclose such data only in aggregate and in a non-personally identifiable manner to:
Notwithstanding the foregoing, Deductr reserves the right (and you authorize Deductr) to share or disclose your Registration Information and Account information when Deductr determines, in its sole discretion, that the disclosure of such information is necessary to identify, contact, or bring legal action against you if:
Registration Information and Account Information may be transferred to a third party as a result of a sale, acquisition, merger, reorganization or other transfer (a “Transfer”) involving Deductr. Deductr specifically reserves the right to transfer Registration and Account Information to a third party in connection with a Transfer. Should such a Transfer occur, we will use our best efforts to require that the new combined entity follow this privacy and security policy with respect to your personal information, as and to the extent required by applicable law and require that you receive prior notice if your personal information could be used contrary to this policy.
Your data is yours. You can remove it anytime you want. When you request us to delete your account for the Service, your data will be permanently expunged from our primary production servers and further access to your account will not be possible. We will also promptly disconnect any connection we had established to your Account Information. However, portions of your data, consisting of aggregate data derived from your Account Information, may remain on our production servers indefinitely. Your data may also remain on a backup server or media. Deductr keeps these backups to ensure our continued ability to provide the Service to you in the event of malfunction or damage to our primary production servers.
“Cookies” are alphanumeric identifiers in the form of text files that are inserted and stored by your Web browser on your computer’s hard drive. Deductr may set and access cookies on your computer to track and store preferential information about you. Deductr may gather anonymous information about you through cookie technology on an aggregate level only. For example, Deductr may assign a cookie to you, to limit the amount of times you see a particular Deductr Offer or to help better determine which Deductr Offers to serve to you. Please note that most Internet browsers will allow you to stop cookies from being stored on your computer and to delete cookies stored on your computer. If you choose to eliminate cookies, the full functionality of the Service may be impaired for you.

Subscriptions to Deductr.com newsletters are verified by sending an e-mail confirmation to your e-mail address, which requires a positive response before an e-mail address is added to Deductr’s list.
Because we provide you the option of receiving our promotional newsletters, Deductr.com subscribers have the ability to opt-out of receiving these newsletters by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We also will send users service-related emails which they do not have the ability to opt-out of.
Simply put, your data is yours and only you (through your Registration Information) have access to your data on the Service.
We use a combination of firewall barriers and authentication procedures to maintain the security of your online session and to protect Deductr accounts and systems from unauthorized access.
Authentication is the process you go through on Deductr to access secure areas of our Website. This process takes place when you log into your account, the two key components of which are your Login ID and Password.
If you have a security related concern, please contact us at email@example.com. We will work closely with you to ensure a rapid and personal response to your concerns.
If we decide to change our privacy and security policy, we will update the date upon which this policy, including those changes became effective from at the top of this policy and post those changes to this policy, so that you are aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it.
We reserve the right to modify this policy at any time, so please review it frequently.
If you are a former customer, we treat your information in the same manner that we treat information about our current customers.
If you have questions, comments, concerns or feedback regarding this Privacy and Security Policy, send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
