1. Information GLOW LOYALTY Collects

The types of information We may collect from Merchants are as follows:
2. Sources of Personal Data
In the preceding twelve (12) months since this notice was last updated, We have collected data from the following categories of sources:
When you complete the Registration Process for the Service by downloading the Shopify application, Shopify will provide your name, email address, and physical address to GLOW LOYALTY. Merchants are not required to enter a credit card as they will be charged directly by the Shopify platform.
3 . Data Use.
3 .1 Services. GLOW LOYALTY will not disclose Personal Data without that Merchant's written permission. However, certain Personal Data collected from You, and about You, is used within the context of providing the Service to You.
GLOW LOYALTY may also carry out any other purpose for which the data was collected, to the extent such purpose is necessarily contemplated by the collection of such information or as otherwise notified in the Service at the time of collection.
GLOW LOYALTY uses 3rd party services to help Us provide the Service effectively (e.g. maintenance, analysis, audit, transactions, archiving, and marketing and development). These 3rd party services will have access to Merchants’ Personal Data as reasonably necessary to perform these tasks on the behalf of GLOW LOYALTY and are obligated not to disclose or use it for other purposes.
GLOW LOYALTY utilizes 3rd party services to store all information regarding Merchants' actions on their account for the purpose of reconstructing the Service should GLOW LOYALTY have a system crash resulting in loss of data.
3 .2 Communications. GLOW LOYALTY will avail itself of Merchants’ email addresses to get in contact with those Merchants.
3 .3 Advertising. GLOW LOYALTY targets and measures the performance of ads to Merchants, visitors, and others, both on and off the Service, directly, or through a variety of partners. GLOW LOYALTY is using data from advertising technologies on and off the Service, like cookies and session information.
3.4 Cookies. A cookie is a small amount of data, including an anonymous unique identifier. Websites may use both session cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent cookies (which stay on your computer or mobile device until you delete them). Cookies are sent to your browser from a website and stored on your computer's hard drive. We assign every computer that accesses Our website a different cookie.
We use two categories of cookies: (1) first-party cookies, served directly by Us to your computer or mobile device, which We use to recognize your computer or mobile device when it revisits Our websites; and (2) third-party cookies, which are served by service providers or business partners on Our websites, and can be used by these parties to recognize your computer or mobile device when it visits other websites. Third-party cookies can be used for various purposes, including site analytics, advertising, and social media features.
Necessary - These cookies are required to allow the technical operation of Our Services (e.g. they enable you to move around on a website and to use its features).
Targeting - Advertising companies use these cookies to collect information about how you use Our Sites and other websites over time. These companies use this information to show you ads they believe will be relevant to you within Our Services and elsewhere and to measure how the ads perform.
Cookies can be used to track Merchants' and visitors' sessions on Our website and to serve customized ads from Google and other 3rd party vendors. When you visit Our website, you may view advertisements posted on the website by Google or other 3rd parties. Through 1st party and 3rd party cookies, these 3rd parties may collect information about you while you are visiting Our website and other websites. They may use this data to show you advertisements on Our website and across the Internet based on your prior visits to Our website and elsewhere on the Internet. We do not collect this information or control the content of the advertisements that You will see.
We use a service provided by Google called Google Analytics (" GA"). GA permits us to reach people who have previously visited Our site and show them relevant advertisements when they visit other sites across the Internet in the Google Display Network. This is often called ‘re-marketing’.
For more information about cookies, including how to see what cookies have been set on your computer or mobile device and how to manage and delete them, visit https://www.allaboutcookies.org. If you do not accept Our cookies, you may experience some inconvenience in using Our websites. For example, We may not be able to recognize your computer or mobile device, and you may need to log in every time you visit Our websites.
3.5 Other Technologies. In addition to cookies, Our websites may use other technologies, such as Flash technology to create pixel tags in order to collect information automatically.
Browser Web Storage - We may use browser web storage (including via HTML5), also known as locally stored objects (“LSOs”), for similar purposes as cookies. Browser web storage enables the storage of a more significant amount of data than cookies. Your web browser may provide the functionality to clear your browser’s web storage.
Flash Technology - We may use Flash cookies (which are also known as Flash Local Shared Objects (“Flash LSOs”)) on Our websites to collect and store information about your use of Our websites. Unlike other cookies, Flash cookies cannot be removed or rejected via your browser settings. If you do not want Flash LSOs stored on your computer or mobile device, you can adjust the settings of your Flash player to block Flash LSO storage using the tools contained in the Website Storage Settings Panel. You can also control Flash LSOs by going to the Global Storage Settings Panel and following the instructions. Please note that setting the Flash Player to restrict or limit acceptance of Flash LSOs may reduce or impede the functionality of some Flash applications, including Flash applications used in connection with Our websites.
Web Beacons - We may also use web beacons (known as pixel tags and clear GIFs) on Our websites and in Our HTML-formatted emails to track Merchants’ and visitors’ actions on Our websites and interactions with Our emails. Unlike cookies, which are stored on the hard drive of your computer or mobile device by a website, pixel tags are embedded invisibly on webpages or within HTML-formatted emails. Pixel tags are used to demonstrate that a webpage was accessed or that certain content was viewed, typically to measure the success of Our marketing campaigns or engagement with Our emails and to compile statistics about usage of the websites, so that We can manage Our content more effectively.
3.6 Managing Cookies and Similar Tracking Technologies. You can control and manage cookies and similar tracking technologies in various ways. Please remember that removing or blocking cookies and similar tracking technologies can negatively impact your user experience, and parts of Our websites may no longer be fully accessible. Your options for controlling what information cookies and similar tracking technologies collect about you include the following:
Your mobile device settings may provide additional functionality to limit the use of the advertising ID associated with your mobile device for interest-based advertising purposes.
Your use of the GLOW LOYALTY website without opting out means that you understand and agree to data collection to provide you with re-marketing ads using GA and cookies from other 3rd party vendors based on your prior visits to Our website and elsewhere on the Internet. Please note that We also may work with companies that offer their own opt-out mechanisms and may not participate in the opt-out mechanisms linked above.
