From time to time MerchBooth.com may ask you to fill out a survey – the purpose of any survey is for us to get to know you better so we can deliver you the best possible experience. Our online surveys may ask you for demographic information, as well as the types of things you like and dislike as it relates to our service. Demographic and profile data is also collected at our site. We use this data to tailor our visitors' experience at our site, showing them content and promotional offers that we think they might be interested in, and displaying the content according to their preferences. This information is shared with advertisers only on an aggregate basis.

Promotions / Giveaways
From time to time we run promotions, Giveaways, and other similar types of incentives – for these purposes we will associate your activity with your unique username and account information. We use contact data from our promotions to send users information about upcoming contests and promotional offers. On occasion we will email customers promotional material from some of our partners. The customer's contact information is also used to contact the visitor when necessary for purposes of redeeming a promotion and giveaway. The majority of the promotions that we offer are hosted on MerchBooth.com.com or one of our micro-sites; however, there may be cases in which a third party sponsor will host the contest and collect user information. In those cases, we urge users to review the privacy statement of the third party site. Users can always opt out of receiving future mailings by visiting your account settings or selecting “unsubscribe” at the bottom of any e-mail communication sent to you by MerchBooth.com.
