5. When We Share The Information We Collect
As outlined above, from time to time we engage unaffiliated third parties (“Suppliers”) that provide products and services to help us with our business activities.

We share aggregated and anonymous usage data (such as age range, gender, view and redemption data, and other automatically collected information that does not personally identify you) with third parties. These third parties may include marketing services or agencies, ad services, data exchanges, compliance obligations, or other businesses interested in acquiring demographic information, as well as the retailers and suppliers that currently, or may in the future, offer promotions, advertisements, or other services through the Services. Some Services may be co-branded and offered in conjunction with another company.

We will disclose personal information if a law, regulation, search warrant, subpoena or court order legally authorizes us or requires us to do so.

Personal information is retained only for so long as is necessary for the purpose set out above. When no longer required, we will destroy, erase, aggregate, or de-personalize the information.
