Privacy Policy

At PunchCards we recognize that privacy is important. This Privacy Policy applies to any brickandmobile.com web site, mobile website, web platform, product, marketing material, sales training course, subscription, and/or service (“Service”), offered by PunchCards.com [MB1] or its subsidiaries or affiliated companies (collectively, “PunchCards” or “We”), and any person who uses any PunchCards Service (“Customer” or “You” or “Your”).

Information We Collect and How We Use It

We offer a number of Services that do not require You to register for a Service or provide any personal information to us. In order to provide our full range of Services, we may collect the following types of information:

Information You Provide

When You sign up for a PunchCards Service or other PunchCards Service or promotion that requires registration, We ask You for personal information (such as Your name, email address, billing address, credit card or PayPal information) which we maintain in encrypted form on secure servers. PunchCards uses collected information for the following general purposes: product and Service provision, billing, identification and authentication, Services improvement, contact, and research. We may combine the information You submit under a Service with information from other PunchCards Services or third parties in order to provide You with a better experience and to improve the quality of our Services. For certain Services, We may give You the opportunity to opt out of combining such information.

Email Addresses

We collect the e-mail addresses of those who communicate with us via e-mail, aggregate information on what pages consumers access or visit, and collect information volunteered by the consumer (such as survey information and/or site registrations). The information We collect is used to improve the content of our Web pages and the quality of our Service, and is not shared with or sold to other organizations for commercial purposes, except to provide products or Services You have requested, when We have Your permission.


When You visit PunchCards, We send one or more cookies – a small file containing a string of characters – to Your computer or other device that uniquely identifies Your browser. We use cookies to improve the quality of our Service, including for storing user preferences, improving search results and ad selection, and tracking user trends, such as how people search. PunchCards also uses cookies in its advertising Services to help advertisers and publishers serve and manage ads across the web, such as Google. We may set one or more cookies in Your browser when You visit a website, including PunchCards sites that use our advertising cookies, and view or click on an ad supported by PunchCards’ advertising Services. Third-party vendors, including Google, may also display PunchCards advertisements on other sites across the Internet based on the cookies from advertising network partners. Unless You choose to identify yourself to PunchCards, either by responding to a promotional offer, opening an account, or filling out a web form (such as a support or a free trial offer web form), you remain anonymous to PunchCards.

Google Adwords Display Advertising Opt Out

You can opt out of Google’s use of cookies by visiting the Ads Preferences Manager. Alternatively, you can opt out of our third-party partner’s use of cookies by visiting the Network Advertising Initiative opt-out page.

Log Information

When You access PunchCards Services, our servers automatically record information that Your browser sends whenever You visit a website. These server logs may include information such as Your web request, Internet Protocol address, browser type, browser language, the date and time of Your request and one or more cookies that may uniquely identify Your browser.

User Communications

When You send email or other communications to PunchCards, we may retain those communications in order to process Your inquiries, respond to Your requests and improve our Services.

Affiliated PunchCards Services on Other Sites

We offer some of our Services on or through other web sites. Personal information that You provide to those sites may be sent to PunchCards in order to deliver the Service. We process such information under this Privacy Policy. The affiliated sites through which our Services are offered may have different privacy practices and we encourage You to read their privacy policies.


PunchCards may make available third party applications through its Services. The information collected by PunchCards when You enable a gadget or other application is processed under this Privacy Policy. Information collected by the application or gadget provider is governed by their privacy policies.

Location Data

PunchCards offers location-enabled Services, such as pass cards and mobile wallet cards. If You use those Services, PunchCards may receive information about Your actual location (such as GPS signals sent by a mobile device) or information that can be used to approximate a location (such as a cell ID).


PunchCards may present links in a format that enables us to keep track of whether these links have been followed. We use this information to improve the quality of our search technology, customized content and advertising. Read more information about links and redirected URLs.

Web Beacons

PunchCards uses web beacons alone or in conjunction with cookies to compile information about You and Your usage of PunchCards’ web sites, Services and interaction with emails from PunchCards. Web beacons are clear electronic images that can recognize certain types of information on your computer, such as cookies, when you viewed a particular website tied to the web beacon, and a description of a website tied to the web beacon. For example, PunchCards may place web beacons in marketing emails that notify PunchCards when you click on a link in the email that directs you to one of PunchCards sites. PunchCards uses web beacons to operate and improve its websites and email communications.

Geo-Location Information

When You use the Service by or through a mobile device, We may access, collect, monitor and/or remotely store “location data,” which may include GPS coordinates (e.g. latitude and/or longitude), Bluetooth, and your IP Address, along with crowd-sourced Wi-Fi hotspot and cell tower locations, and other technologies to determine your devices’ approximate location or similar information regarding the location of Your mobile device. Location data may convey information about how You use the Service to us. Location data does not collect or share any personally identifiable information about you. Location data may be used in conjunction with personally identifiable information. Some features of the Service, particularly location-based services, may not function properly if use or availability of location data is impaired or disabled.

Device Identifiers

When You access the Service by or through a mobile device, We may access, collect, monitor and/or remotely store one or more “device identifiers.” Device identifiers are small data files or similar data structures stored on or associated with your mobile device, which uniquely identify Your mobile device and are used to enhance the Service. A device identifier may be data stored in connection with the device hardware, data stored in connection with the device’s operating system or other software, or data sent to the device by us. A device identifier may convey information about how You use the Service to us. A device identifier does not collect or share any personally identifiable information about you. A device identifier may be used in conjunction with personally identifiable information. A device identifier may remain persistently on your device, to help you log in faster and enhance your navigation through the Service. Some features of the Service may not function properly if use or availability of device identifiers are impaired or disabled. We may access, collect and/or store device identifiers upon enabling the Services.

Social Media Features

The Services may use social media features, such as the Facebook ‘like’ button (“Social Media Features”). These features may collect your IP address and which page you are visiting on PunchCards’ website or Services, and may set a cookie to enable the feature to function properly. You may be given the option by such Social Media Features to post information about your activities on PunchCards’ website to a profile page of yours that is provided by a third party social media network in order to share with others within your network. Social Media Features are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on PunchCards’ Service. Your interactions with these features are governed by the privacy policy of the company providing the relevant Social Media Features.

Public forums, refer a friend, and customer testimonials

PunchCards may provide bulletin boards, blogs, or chat rooms or help forums on PunchCards’ websites or Services. Any personal information you choose to submit in such a forum may be read, collected, or used by others who visit these forums, and may be used to send you unsolicited messages. PunchCards is not responsible for the personal information you choose to submit in these forums.

You may elect to use PunchCards’ referral program to inform friends about PunchCards’ Services. When using the referral program, PunchCards requests the friend’s name and email address. PunchCards will automatically send the friend a one-time email inviting him or her to visit PunchCards’ Services.

PunchCards may post a list of customers and testimonials on PunchCards’ websites that contain information such as names and titles. PunchCards obtains the consent of each customer prior to posting any information on such a list or posting testimonials.

Other Sites

This Privacy Policy applies to PunchCards Services only. We do not exercise control over the sites displayed as search results, sites that include PunchCards applications, products or Services, or links from within our various Services. These other sites may place their own cookies or other files on Your computer, collect data or solicit personal information from You.

PunchCards only processes personal information for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy and/or the supplementary privacy notices for specific Services. In addition to the above, such purposes include:

  • Providing our Services, including the display of customized content and advertising;
  • Auditing, research and analysis in order to maintain, protect and improve our Services;
  • Ensuring the technical functioning of our network;
  • Protecting the rights or property of PunchCards or our users; and
  • Developing new Services.

PunchCards processes personal information on our servers. In some cases, we process personal information on a server outside Your own country. We may process personal information to provide our own Services. In some cases, we may process personal information on behalf of and according to the instructions of a third party, such as our advertising partners.

Choices for Personal Information

If we propose to use personal information for any purposes other than those described in this Privacy Policy and/or in the specific Service privacy notices, we will offer You an effective way to opt out of the use of personal information for those other purposes. We will not collect or use sensitive information for purposes other than those described in this Privacy Policy and/or in the supplementary Service privacy notices, unless we have obtained Your prior consent.

Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies, but You can reset Your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, some PunchCards features and Services may not function properly if Your cookies are disabled.

You can decline to submit personal information to any of our Services, in which case PunchCards may not be able to provide these Services to You.

Information Sharing

PunchCards only shares personal information with other companies or individuals outside of PunchCards in the following limited circumstances:

We have Your consent. We require opt-in consent for the sharing of any sensitive personal information.
If you are signed-up to the Service through a white-label offering or partner, we will share your personal information with them in order for them to assist with your Service or provide support to you directly.

We provide such information to our subsidiaries, affiliated companies or other trusted businesses or persons for the purpose of processing personal information on our behalf or providing Services to You. We require that these parties agree to process such information based on our instructions and in compliance with this Privacy Policy and any other appropriate confidentiality and security measures.

From time to time, PunchCards may partner with other companies to jointly offer products or services. If you purchase or specifically express interest in a jointly-offered product or service from PunchCards, We may share Your personal information collected in connection with your purchase or expression of interest with our joint promotion partner(s). PunchCards does not control our business partners’ use of Your personal information or data we collect, and their use of the information will be in accordance with their own privacy policies. If You do not wish for Your information to be shared in this manner, You may opt not to purchase or specifically express interest in a jointly offered product or service.

We have a good faith belief that access, use, preservation or disclosure of such information is reasonably necessary to: (a) satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process or enforceable governmental request, (b) enforce applicable Terms of Service, including investigation of potential violations thereof, (c) detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues, or (d) protect against harm to the rights, property or safety of PunchCards, its users or the public as required or permitted by law.

If PunchCards becomes involved in a merger, acquisition, or any form of sale of some or all of its assets, we will ensure the confidentiality of any personal information involved in such transactions and provide notice before personal information is transferred and becomes subject to a different privacy policy.

We may share with third parties certain pieces of aggregated, non-personal information, such as the number of users who searched for a particular term, for example, or how many users clicked on a particular advertisement. Such information does not identify You individually.

PunchCards may disclose personally identifiable information under special circumstances, such as to comply with subpoenas or when Your actions violate the Terms of Service.

Information Security

We take appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of data. These include internal reviews of our data collection, storage and processing practices and security measures, as well as physical security measures to guard against unauthorized access to systems where we store personal data.

We restrict access to personal information to PunchCards employees, contractors and agents who need to know that information in order to operate, develop or improve our Service. These individuals are bound by confidentiality obligations and may be subject to discipline, including termination and criminal prosecution, if they fail to meet these obligations.

Data Integrity

PunchCards processes personal information only for the purposes for which it was collected and in accordance with this Privacy Policy or any applicable Service-specific privacy notice. We review our data collection, storage and processing practices to ensure that we only collect, store and process the personal information needed to provide or improve our Service or as otherwise permitted under this Privacy Policy. We take reasonable steps to ensure that the personal information we process is accurate, complete, and current, but we depend on our users to update or correct their personal information whenever necessary.

Accessing and Updating Personal Information

When You use any PunchCards Service, we make good faith efforts to provide You with access to Your personal information and either to correct this data if it is inaccurate or to delete such data at Your request if it is not otherwise required to be retained by law or for legitimate business purposes. We ask individual users to identify themselves and the information requested to be accessed, corrected or removed before processing such requests, and we may decline to process requests that are unreasonably repetitive or systematic, require disproportionate technical effort, jeopardize the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical (for instance, requests concerning information residing on backup tapes), or for which access is not otherwise required. In any case where we provide information access and correction, we perform this Service free of charge, except if doing so would require a disproportionate effort. Some of our Services have different procedures to access, correct or delete users’ personal information. We provide the details for these procedures in the specific privacy notices or FAQs for these Services. Please note that there may be instances where access may be restricted as permitted or required by law. Examples may include information that is subject to legal privilege, information containing confidential commercial information and information relating to a third party. If applicable, we will advise you of the reasons for restricting access subject to any legal or regulatory limitations.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

Please note that this Privacy Policy may change from time to time. We will not reduce Your rights under this Privacy Policy without Your explicit consent, and we expect most such changes will be minor. Regardless, we will post any Privacy Policy changes on this page and, if the changes are significant, we will provide a more prominent notice (including, for certain Services, email notification of Privacy Policy changes). Each version of this Privacy Policy will be identified at the top of the page by its effective date, and we will also keep prior versions of this Privacy Policy in an archive for Your review.
