Information We Collect and How We Collect It
The below chart summarizes our collection, use, and disclosure of personal information:
Transaction Data Specifics
Use transaction data to confirm a qualifying purchase or return to match transactions to confirm whether you qualify for a statement credit or an offer;
Share transaction data with the participating merchant where a transaction occurred as needed for the merchant to confirm a specific transaction occurred or points should be awarded; for example, the date and amount of your purchase and the last 4 digits of your card number so the merchant can verify your purchase with its records if there is a missing or disputed transaction;
Provide participating merchants or third party service providers aggregated and anonymized information relating specifically to registered card activity solely to allow participating merchants and third party service providers to assess the results of their campaign;
Create a record of the transaction data and thereafter maintain and use data in connection with operating the Abound program;
Conduct analysis for the improvement and optimization of the program; and
Provide information in order to respond to a request from government authority or a payment organization involved in a transaction with you or a merchant.
By registering a payment card in connection with transaction monitoring, you authorize the Rakuten Card Linked Offer Network (“RCLON”) to share your payment card information with Mastercard, Visa and American Express so it knows you enrolled. You authorize Mastercard, Visa and American Express to monitor transactions on your registered card(s) to identify qualifying purchases in order to determine whether you have qualified for or earned an offer linked to your payment card, and for Mastercard, Visa and American Express to share such transaction details with RCLON to enable your card-linked offer(s) and target offers that may be of interest to you. You may opt-out of transaction monitoring on the payment card(s) you have registered by going to the profile section and tapping on the card you want to remove and then tapping the “Remove Card” button.
You authorize the sharing, exchange and use of transaction data described above and herein by and among us and our third party service providers, applicable payment card networks and applicable merchants.
