Abenity uses the information we collect to respond to your inquiries, fulfill your requests, and to send you administrative information, such as updates to policies or products and services. The information we collect may also be used to personalize your experience and to offer you products, programs, features or services that may be of interest. Abenity may also use the information we collect from and about you for Abenity’s internal business purposes, such as data analysis, audits, and improving Abenity’s marketing and services.
Abenity engages certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to Abenity, including, without limitation, hosting and maintenance; customer relationship management; database storage, management, and analysis; and direct marketing campaigns. Abenity may also use third-party vendors to assist in evaluating customer experiences and improving our products and services. Abenity may share your information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these functions and provide such services, and only pursuant to binding contractual obligations requiring such third parties to maintain the privacy and security of your data.
Abenity WILL NOT sell personal information to third parties for any reason. Abenity WILL NOT share or distribute your personal information with third parties except as part of the function of the Abenity program and as required by law. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Abenity provides the organization through which you receive Abenity benefits (“Participating Organization”) anonymous aggregated level data about its participating members and your general information as part of the group, including but not limited to your name, address and email address. However, the Participating Organization does not receive any data or information specific to your individual participation in the Abenity program, including but not limited to your purchases, spending patterns or vendor selection. Abenity sells some products and services directly to you as a member. In these direct transactions, your financial payment data is encrypted and processed by a third party bank and Abenity does not see, collect or store any of your personal financial information. In addition, Abenity provides discount offers through external hyperlinks to third party merchants and vendors who may request your email address or other personal information. Abenity is not a party to any transaction between you and a third party merchant or vendor, and is not responsible for any personal information provided by you as a part of your transaction. Any and all transactions with third party merchants or vendors are directly with said merchant or vendor and will be wholly processed by the merchant or vendor, not Abenity.
All issues and disputes with a merchant or vendor, including but not limited to delivery issues and returns of merchandise should be handled directly with the merchant or vendor, as Abenity is not a party to your transaction. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Abenity is committed to the highest level of customer support and wants to assist you in the event there is an issue or dispute with a merchant or vendor. Therefore, any issue or dispute that cannot be resolved directly with the merchant or vendor can be reported to Abenity by calling 1-855-ABENITY or emailing Abenity at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please be advised that Abenity does not have any specific authority to compel any action or response by a merchant or vendor, but Abenity will attempt in good faith to address any issue or dispute.
As a part of your membership you have the option to receive a series of monthly “Abenity Spotlight” emails to inform you of new program features, vendor additions, and perks that we think you’ll enjoy. You will receive this email directly from email@example.com, unless a different email address is specified and requested by your Participating Organization. Local, regional, national, and international discounts and nearby offers are provided to you based upon the zip code you provide Abenity, or based upon your device’s IP address during your current browser sessions when you click on the “Nearby” button in the discount program’s location setting. If you are using a mobile application to access Abenity you can set your location settings to update periodically or set your location as a static location from the My Account > Location menu. Additionally, you can receive proactive Perk Alerts about nearby discounts by turning on Perk Alerts from the My Account > Settings menu.
If you do not wish to receive our monthly Spotlight emails or other promotional emails, then you may opt out at any time using the unsubscribe links within the email newsletter or by logging in to your Abenity program and updating your email settings under “My Perks > Profile > Email Settings.”. Opting out will permanently remove your email address and exclude you from receiving future notifications of additional benefits, services, and discount offers. Additionally, opting out of the Spotlight and other promotional emails will not unsubscribe you from Vendor Alerts you may have subscribed to; vendor alert preferences must be managed individually within your discount program under My Perks > Vendor Alerts
