What information does ideel collect?
ideel collects data about you using a number of methods: (1) through your participation in our Sales; (2) on the ideel website and through our mobile applications; and (3) through marketing partners. We may collect data through other channels in the future, but for now, these are the primary ways through which we gather data.
The data we gather about you can vary according to the method through which the data is gathered. When you participate in a Sale, we gather information associated with the telephone (this may be a mobile or land-line phone). If you successfully win an item from a Giveaway or purchase an item during another type of sale, we gather additional information to enable shipping and confirmation of the item and your eligibility. The information we gather, regardless of the channel through which it is gathered, may include your name, address, email, phone, demographic data, ideel usage data, connection data associated with your mobile devices or computer, and service provider data. We may gather additional personal or non-personal information in the future and we may also combine non-personal data (such as ideel website usage) with personal information.
ideel does not intentionally gather data from or about children. Minors are not permitted to participate in ideel Sales.
