Privacy Policy

 

1. OBJECTIVE AND SCOPE

Retail Media Group Ltd. and More Rewards Partnerships (collectively “RMG”) take your privacy seriously. This privacy policy (the “Policy”) describes how we collect, use, retain, disclose and destroy your personal information and the security measures RMG has in place to protect it.

RMG is responsible for the protection of personal information in its possession, whether it is held by RMG or by a third party, and regardless of its form. As such, RMG takes appropriate security measures to protect your personal information in a manner that is proportionate to its sensitivity and has adopted this Policy.

This Policy is divided into three general areas: (i) how we process your information; (ii) your rights with respect to your personal data; and (iii) information third party sites, and security measures, and similar issues that may impact personal data.

8. PROTECTING YOUR INFORMATION WITH SECURITY MEASURES

We take reasonable measures, including administrative, physical and technical safeguards, to protect your information from loss, theft, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. Personal information uploaded to our Sites is transmitted to us using industry standard encryption, which creates a private conversation between your computer and our Sites. We authenticate our Sites and enable TLS/SSL encryption to protect your sensitive data and transactions.

The information collected is protected by computer security measures that are reasonable in light of its sensitivity.

Physical and physical security measures include:

– restricted access to our offices, records and locked filing cabinets;

– restricting access to your personal information to a selected group of people;

– written contractual obligations with third parties who require access to your personal information, requiring them to protect, through security measures, the confidentiality and security of your personal information and to use it only for the purposes of the contract, mandate or service they are performing;

– [other measures you use].

Computer security measures include:

– the use of passwords;

– file encryption;

– restricted access to our data processing and storage rooms;

– regular review of our security practices;

– regular updating of our technology;

– [other measures you use].

Nevertheless, RMG cannot absolutely guarantee that unauthorized third parties will never be able to defeat our security measures or use your personal information for improper purposes. In the event that your personal information in our possession or under our control is compromised as a result of a security breach, we will take reasonable steps to investigate the situation and, where appropriate, notify you and take other steps in accordance with applicable laws or regulations.

Remember that email sent over the Internet is generally unencrypted and transmitted in clear text. We recommend that you use caution when forwarding free-format email messages to us and that you do not include confidential information (such as unique user IDs, passwords, or personally identifiable information) in those messages. Confidential information should be transmitted to us through other secure methods.

 

9. YOUR RIGHTS WITH RESPECT TO YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

You are entitled to be informed or and have access or to rectify the personal information we have in our custody or control. If you wish to access or obtain a copy of your personal information, or if you wish us to rectify any of the personal information we hold about you that is inaccurate, you may do so by contacting us. Upon written request to our Data Privacy Officer as noted at the bottom of this page, we will provide you with your personal information under our custody or control, as well as information regarding how your personal information is being used and the identity of any third party(s) to whom that information has been disclosed.

Please note that we may not be able to provide access to personal information in certain circumstances, such as if the personal information was collected for the purposes of an investigation, if disclosure would reveal the personal information of a third party, or if prohibited by law. To protect your privacy and security, we may take reasonable steps to verify your identity prior to providing such access.

You may change or withdraw your consent for the collection, use and disclosure of your personal information at any time, subject to reasonable notice, by contacting our Data Privacy Officer. Legal and other requirements may prevent you from withdrawing consent and your decision to withdraw personal information may also limit the services or products RMG is able to provide to you.
