Additionally, we may also use data to notify you of changes and updates to our products and services, as well as to comply with legal obligations. We do not collect any information in excess to that required for the aforementioned purposes, nor do we collect data with the sole intention of selling personal information to third-party entities.
How We Collect Data
In addition to information that you provide to us directly via mediums such as registration forms and contact forms, such as your username, password, and email address, we also employ the services of an array of technologies to further facilitate this process. Primarily, we make use of browser cookies (additional information about cookies further below), but we may also rely on IP addresses, browser fingerprinting scripts, and pixel beacons to identify and track user activities. These technologies provide us with detailed data, which we can then use to not only provide you with a better and a much focused service, but to also improve the contents and elements of our site in future updates.
OffersAtCart may also employ the services of payment processing platforms and statistics generation services such as cleverbridge AG and Histats.

They may deploy additional cookies to facilitate these services, and may process, and even store, certain amounts of information for the services that we have authorized them to provide us with. Usually, such data is anonymized as a means to prevent the identification of users.
