The purpose of this privacy notice is to explain to you in the clearest way possible what information we collect, how we use it, and what rights you have in relation to it. If there are any terms in this privacy notice that you do not agree with, please discontinue use of our services immediately.
Please read this privacy notice carefully, as it will help you understand what we do with the information that we collect.
Information Automatically Collected
In Short: Some information – such as your Internet Protocol (IP) address and/or browser and device characteristics – is collected automatically when you visit our Website.
We automatically collect certain information when you visit, use, or navigate the Website. This information does not reveal your specific identity (like your name or contact information), but may include device and usage information, such as your IP address, browser and device characteristics, operating system, language preferences, referring URLs, device name, country, location, information about how and when you use our Website and other technical information. This information is primarily needed to maintain the security and operation of our Website, and for our internal analytics and reporting purposes.

Like many businesses, we also collect information through cookies and similar technologies.

The information we collect includes:
How Do We Use Your Information?
We use personal information collected via our Website for a variety of business purposes described below. 
We may use your data for the following purposes:
Do We Use Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies?
In Short: We may use cookies and similar tracking technologies (like web beacons and pixels) to collect or store information.
Cookies and similar technologies can help us automatically identify you when you return to our website or app. Cookies help us review website traffic patterns, improve the website, and determine what Services are popular. We can also use such information to deliver customized content and advertising to users of the Services whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.
Most web browsers are set to accept cookies by default. If you prefer, you can usually choose to set your browser to remove cookies and to reject cookies. If you choose to remove cookies or reject cookies, this could affect certain features or services of our Website.
How Do We Keep Your Information Safe?
In Short: We aim to protect your personal information through a system of organization and technical security measures.
We have implemented appropriate technical and organization security measures designed to protect the security of any personal information we process. However, despite our safeguards and efforts to secure your information, no electronic transmission over the internet or information storage technology can be guaranteed to be 100% secure, so we cannot promise or guarantee that hackers, cybercriminals, or other unauthorized third parties will not be able to defeat our security, and improperly collect, access, steal, or modify your information. Although we will do our best your personal information, transmission of personal information to and from our Website is at your own risk. You should only access the Website within a secure environment.
Controls for Do-Not-Track Features
Most web browsers and some mobile operating systems and mobile applications include a Do-Not-Track (“DNT”) feature or setting you can activate to signal your privacy preference not to have data about your online browsing activities monitored and collected. At this stage, no uniform technology standard for recognizing and implementing DNT signals has been finalized. As such, we do not currently respond to DNT browser signals or any other mechanism that automatically communicates your choice not to be tracked online. If a standard for online tracking is adopted that we must follow in the future, we will inform you about that practice in a revised version of this privacy notice.
Notice to Persons Accessing this Website from Outside the United States
Our Services are controlled and operated by us from the United States, are made available to residents of the United States, and are not intended to subject us to the laws or jurisdiction of any state, country, or territory other than those of the United States.

By providing personal information to Rewards for Justice, you explicitly consent to the transfer of your information to the United States.
Rewards for Justice or its service providers may also transfer your personal information from the European Economic Area (EEA) to other countries, some of which have not yet been determined by the European Commission to offer an adequate level of data protection according to EEA standards. For transfers to countries not requiring a level of data protection that meets EEA standards, Rewards for Justice uses a variety of legal mechanisms to protect your personal information, including contractual provisions and written assurances from service providers.
We will handle your personal information in accordance with this Privacy Policy regardless of where your personal information is stored or accessed.
