What Personal Information Does Tidbits Collect?
The information Tidbits gathers from subscribers enables us to personalize and improve our services. Tidbits collects the following types of information from our customers:
Personal Information You Provide to Us:
Tidbits may receive and store any information you enter on our Tidbits or Tidbits Treats site or provide to us in any other way. The types of Personal Information collected may include your full name, gender, email address, mobile phone number, IP address, browser information, username, password, time zone and any other information necessary for us to provide our services. You can choose not to provide us with certain information, but then you may not be able to take advantage of many of our special features. The Personal Information you provide may be used for such purposes as responding to your requests for certain products and services, customizing the advertising and content you see and communicating with you about specials, sales offers and new products.
Personal Information Collected Automatically:
Tidbits receives and stores certain types of information whenever you interact with our Site or use our services. Tidbits automatically receives and records information on our server logs from your browser including your IP address, cookie information and the page you requested.
Generally, our service automatically collects usage information, such as the numbers and frequency of visitors to our Site and its components, similar to TV ratings that indicate how many people watched a particular show. Tidbits only uses this data in aggregate form, that is, as a statistical measure, and not in a manner that would identify you personally. This type of aggregate data enables us to figure out how often customers use parts of the Site or services so that Tidbits can make the Site appealing to as many customers as possible and improve those services.

Will Tidbits Share Any of the Personal Information it Receives?
Personal Information about our customers is an integral part of our business. Tidbits neither shares nor rents nor sells your Personal Information to anyone. Tidbits uses your Personal Information only as described below.
- If you opt into purchasing a Tidbits Treat, Tidbits may share your information with Merchants: From time to time, Tidbitsprovides offers from particular Merchants who, as part of the offer and to provide purchased services, request information on customers who purchased the offer. In those cases, Tidbits shares some of your Personally Identifiable Information with Merchants. Sharing this Information will allow a Merchant to market directly to you should they choose to do so. However, Tidbits will only share Personally Identifiable Information with a Merchant if you purchase a Voucher from said Merchant, and only with this Merchant. Tidbits specifically disclaims any responsibility or liability for the actions of such Merchant. While Tidbits informs them that they are only permitted to communicate with you for the purposes of the specific promotion with Tidbits, Tidbits does not have any responsibility for the actions of the Merchant, and the actions of the Merchant are not in our control.
- Affiliated Businesses Tidbits Does Not Control: Tidbits anticipates that Tidbits may become affiliated with a variety of businesses and work closely with them. In certain situations, these businesses may sell items to you through the Site. In other situations, Tidbits may provide services or sell products jointly with affiliated businesses.
