Privacy Policy

At ExploreShops.net, we think it is best practice to let our valued customers know exactly what information we collect and how we use that information.

Information includes your:

  • Name
  • Mailing Address
  • Email
  • Contact Number

ExploreShops.net does not require or request any information from any users browsers simply browsing our website. However, if you use any services provided by ExploreShops.net, you will be prompted for any information we need to successfully perform our service. Any information we gather will be specifically prompted for and only used for purposes as described in this Privacy Policy and the Terms & Conditions.

Your personal details will remain completely private with the exception of:

  • A merchant needing to validate your identity to dispute a review. A review can only be disputed if the user was not involved in a merchant’s services or a transaction never took place.
  • Your information being needed to carry out a service.
  • If disclosing information is needed to protect ExploreShops.net, ExploreShops.net users, our subsidiaries, our partners and any other contracted parties with ExploreShops.net.
  • If you land on a private-level shopping site hosted by our partners, we can then forward any information you have provided to our partner. We are not responsible for how your information is used or stored by our partners.
  • Complying with a law enforcement request, court order, search warrant, subpoena or any other legally binding process brought to ExploreShops.net.

There are times throughout your use of ExploreShops.net you will be prompted for “optional” secondary information. This can include demographic information that will then be compiled into a database of ExploreShops.net users. Once your information is added to our database, you will no longer be identifiable as a specific user and may be shared with our partners. This information is primarily used to help us learn more about our users so we can continue to improve.

There are times we collect unprompted statistical data that cannot specifically identify you as a user such as:

  • Time of visit
  • Which pages you visited and for how long
  • The TCP and IP address
  • The time it takes for a user to download our pages

This information is used specifically to maintain our website and provide the necessary traffic information to our advertisers to ensure they are adequately rewarded.
