Sizzle Websites Privacy Notice

At Sizzle, our fundamental philosophy is “Users first.” That value powers all of the decisions we make, including how we gather and respect your personal information. We’ve crafted the policy below to be as clear and straightforward as possible. Our aim is for you—our Users—to always feel informed and empowered with respect to your privacy on Sizzle.

Introduction

Last revised: July 20, 2021

Sizzle is a unique promotional platform for—Sellers—brands, services, companies, institutions, individuals, and organizations to connect with Sizzle Users in fun and stimulating ways using the Sizzle Offer Engine to deliver pull advertising experiences to Users.

Sizzle’s Mission: Imagination, Innovation, Inspiration Promoting Sustainable, Inclusive Culture.

Sizzle accomplishes this by allowing Sellers to use the Sizzle technology platform consisting of augmented reality technologies, games, streaming media systems, paired with the other Offer Trigger Systems and promotional tools to promote themselves by allowing the Sellers to be more actionable, interactive, transactional, and thereby, successful. Our Sellers share their promotional messages and offers, engage with Users, post and view relevant content, study data relating to their campaign results, and much more. A Seller may either use Sizzle on a professional basis (“Enterprise Seller”), seeking to deliver their offer to an audience or on a personal basis (“User”) seeking to engage with the offers on Sizzle. Many of our Sellers use Sizzle in both a professional and personal capacity. We believe that our services allow our Sellers to effectively promote themselves to their greatest potential. The cornerstone of our business is to make our Sellers successful.

We protect your personal information using industry-standard safeguards.

We may share your information with your consent or as required by law, and we will always let you know when we make significant changes to this Privacy Policy.

Sizzle participates in the EU-U.S. and Swiss U.S. Privacy Shield.

Maintaining your trust is our top priority, so we adhere to the following principles to protect your privacy:

  • We protect your personal information and will only provide it to third parties: (1) with your consent; (2) where it is necessary to carry out your instructions; (3) as reasonably necessary in order to provide our features and functionality to you; (4) when we reasonably believe it is required by law, subpoena or other legal process; or (5) as necessary to enforce our User Agreement or protect the rights, property, or safety of Sizzle, our Users and Sellers, and the public.
  • We have implemented appropriate security safeguards designed to protect your information in accordance with industry standards.

This Privacy Policy applies to sizzle.network, sizzlesells.com, and the Sizzle mobile applications, and all other Sizzle websites, apps, developer platforms, and other products and services (collectively the “Services”). We may modify this Privacy Policy from time to time, and if we make material changes to it, we will provide notice through our Service, or by other means so that you may review the changes before you continue to use our Services. If you object to any changes, you may close your account. Continuing to use our Services after we publish or communicate a notice about any changes to this Privacy Policy means that you are consenting to the changes.

What personal information about users does Sizzle collect?

We collect your personal information in order to provide and continually improve our products and services.

Here are the types of personal information we collect:

  • Information You Give Us: We receive and store any information you provide in relation to Sizzle Services. Read below to see examples of what we collect. You can choose not to provide certain information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of many of our Sizzle Services.
  • Automatic Information: We automatically collect and store certain types of information about your use of Sizzle Services, including information about your interaction with content and services available through Sizzle Services. Like many websites, we use “cookies” and other unique identifiers, and we obtain certain types of information when your web browser or device accesses Sizzle Services and other content served by or on behalf of Sizzle on other websites. Read below to see examples of what we collect.
  • Information from Other Sources: We might receive information about you from other sources, such as updated delivery and address information from our carriers, which we use to correct our records and deliver your next purchase more easily. Read below to see additional examples of the information we receive.
  • Use of TrueDepth APIs: Sizzle uses TrueDepth with your expressed permission to enable you  to use augmented reality that needs to see your face in order to make the visual effects work. This currently is used in the masks in the SizzleFX section and will expand to let you play games using your eyes as the control device. Other expected uses will include allowing you to put cosmetics on your face, try on glasses for purchase, try on hats for purchase, jewelry for purchase and more. In all cases, this will be clearly expressed prior to your choosing to use the service with app permission window. If you do not wish to allow this feature, then when the permission window arrives, please cancel and do not allow the use of True Depth APIs. In all cases Sizzle never stores this information on our system. In some cases a cosmetic brand or eyeglass manufacturer, or similar may offer you a chance to purchase their products using augmented reality. If you wish to allow this, you will grant express permission. If not, you will cancel and no information will be recorded. If you opt to send your information to the manufacturer through Sizzle, you will grant express permission prior to doing this. In all other circumstances, as is the case with Sizzle masks, any information that is recorded, ONLY happens on your device and is never transmitted to or recorded by Sizzle.  Therefore Sizzle can not nor will not ever share your personal data captured in our True Depth API without your express permission. In the event that Sizzle transmits this information with your permission, the information is still Never stored on Sizzle servers, so it it will never require to be deleted as that occurance would never happen.

For what purposes does Sizzle use your personal information?

We use your personal information to operate, provide, develop, and improve the products and services that we offer our customers. These purposes include:

  • Purchase and delivery of products and services. We use your personal information to take and handle orders, deliver products and services, process payments, and communicate with you about orders, products and services, and promotional offers.

Does Sizzle share your personal information?

Information about our customers is an important part of our business, and we are not in the business of selling our customers’ personal information to others. We share customers’ personal information only as described below and with subsidiaries Sizzle.com, Inc. controls that either are subject to this Privacy Notice or follow practices at least as protective as those described in this Privacy Notice.

  • Transactions involving Third Parties: We make available to you services, products, applications, or skills provided by third parties for use on or through Sizzle Services. For example, you can order products from third parties through our stores. We also offer services, experiences or sell product lines jointly with third-party businesses. In most cases, that is the business who invited you download Sizzle to explore your first experience or offer in Sizzle or to visit their store in Sizzle.shop. You can tell when a third party is involved in your transactions, and we share customers’ personal information related to those transactions with that third party.
  • Third-Party Service Providers: We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include fulfilling orders for products or services, delivering packages, sending postal mail and email, removing repetitive information from customer lists, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, providing search results and links (including paid listings and links), processing payments, transmitting content, scoring, assessing and managing credit risk, and providing customer service. These third-party service providers have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.
  • Business Transfers: As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy other businesses or services. In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets but remains subject to the promises made in any pre-existing Privacy Notice (unless, of course, the customer consents otherwise). Also, in the unlikely event that Sizzle Inc. or substantially all of its assets are acquired, customer information will of course be one of the transferred assets.
  • Protection of Sizzle and Others: We release account and other personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law; enforce or apply our Conditions of Use and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of Sizzle, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.

Other than as set out above, you will receive notice when personal information about you might be shared with third parties, and you will have an opportunity to choose not to share the information.

How secure is information about me?

We design our systems with your security and privacy in mind.

  • We work to protect the security of your personal information during transmission by using encryption protocols and software.
  • We follow the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) when handling credit card data.
  • We maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards in connection with the collection, storage, and disclosure of customer personal information. Our security procedures mean that we may ask to verify your identity before we disclose personal information to you.
  • Our devices offer security features to protect them against unauthorized access and loss of data. You can control these features and configure them based on your needs.
  • It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computers, devices, and applications. We recommend using a unique password for your Sizzle account that is not used for other online accounts. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer.

What about advertising?

  • Use of Third-Party Advertising Services: We provide ad companies with information that allows them to serve you with more useful and relevant Sizzle ads and to measure their effectiveness. We never share your name or other information that directly identifies you when we do this. Instead, we use an advertising identifier like a cookie or other device identifier. For example, if you have already downloaded one of our apps, we will share your advertising identifier and data about that event so that you will not be served an ad to download the app again. Some ad companies also use this information to serve you relevant ads from other advertisers. You can learn more about how to opt-out of interest-based advertising by going to the Advertising Preferences below.

Table of Contents

Interest-Based Offers

Interest-based offers are sometimes referred to as personalized or targeted offers. We show interest-based offers to display features, products, and services that might be of interest to you. In providing interest-based offers, we follow the Self-Regulatory Principles for Online Behavioral Advertising developed by the Digital Advertising Alliance (a coalition of marketing, online advertising, and consumer advocacy organizations).

What sort of information do we use to show interest-based offers?

To serve you interest-based offers, we use information such as your interactions with Sizzle sites, content, or services. We do not use information which on its own identifies you, such as name or e-mail address, to serve interest-based offers.

 

As is common in the advertising industry, we use cookies, pixels, and other technologies (collectively, “cookies”), which enable us to understand the effectiveness of the interest-based offers we show you by measuring what offers are clicked or viewed, and to provide you with more useful and relevant offers. For example, if we know what offers are shown to your browser we can be careful not to show the same offers repeatedly. See our Privacy Notice for more information about the types of information that we gather.

How do we work with third parties to show you interest-based offers?

We work with third parties, such as advertisers, publishers, social media networks, search engines, ad serving companies, and advertising companies working on their behalf, to improve the relevance of offers we serve. In providing you interest-based offers we do not associate your interactions on unaffiliated sites with information which on its own identifies you, such as name or email address, and we do not provide any such information to advertisers or to third-party sites that display our interest-based offers. Advertisers and other third parties may assume that users who interact with or click on an interest-based offer or content are part of the group that the offer or content is directed towards (for example, users in a particular geographical area or users who purchased or browsed for classical music).


Third party advertisers or advertising companies working on their behalf sometimes use cookies in the process of delivering content, including ads, directly to your browser or device, and they may automatically receive an IP address when this happens. They may also use cookies to measure the effectiveness of their ads, show you more relevant advertising content, and perform services on behalf of Sizzle. For information on how to control and delete cookies (including third party cookies) please visit our Cookies Notice.

Advertising preferences

Sizzle offers you choices about receiving interest-based offers from us. You can choose not to receive interest-based offers from Sizzle. You will still see offers but they will not be based on your interests. You can also generally opt out of receiving personalized offers from third party advertisers and ad networks who are members of the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) or who follow the Digital Advertising Alliance’s Self-Regulatory Principles for Online Behavioral Advertising by visiting the opt out pages on the NAI website and DAA website.

You may also see ads provided by Sizzle, they just will not be based on your interests. For more general information, please see our Privacy Notice.

Choosing not to see interest-based ads will not affect other services that use cookies and information may still be collected for other purposes. You can manage cookies in the privacy settings of the web browser you are using. Further details on how we use cookies and how you can manage cookies are contained in our Cookies Notice. We use cookies to manage your choice to not receive interest-based ads. If you delete these cookies or use a different browser, you will have to choose not to receive interest-based ads again.

Reviews, Comments, Communications, and other content

You may post reviews, comments, photos, videos, and other content; send e-cards and other communications; and submit suggestions, ideas, comments, questions, or other information, so long as the content is not illegal, obscene, threatening, defamatory, invasive of privacy, infringing of intellectual property rights (including publicity rights), or otherwise injurious to third parties or objectionable, and does not consist of or contain software viruses, political campaigning, commercial solicitation, chain letters, mass mailings, or any form of “spam” or unsolicited commercial electronic messages. You may not use a false e-mail address, impersonate any person or entity, or otherwise mislead as to the origin of a card or other content. Sizzle reserves the right (but not the obligation) to remove or edit such content, but does not regularly review posted content.


If you do post content or submit material, and unless we indicate otherwise, you grant Sizzle a nonexclusive, royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, and fully sublicensable right to use, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, perform, translate, create derivative works from, distribute, and display such content throughout the world in any media.

You represent and warrant that you own or otherwise control all of the rights to the content that you post; that the content is accurate; that use of the content you supply does not violate this policy and will not cause injury to any person or entity; and that you will indemnify Sizzle for all claims resulting from content you supply. Sizzle has the right but not the obligation to monitor and edit or remove any activity or content.

Intellectual Property complaints

Sizzle respects the intellectual property of others. If you believe that your intellectual property rights are being infringed, please notify our Customer Service.

Risk of loss

All purchases of physical items from Sizzle are made pursuant to a shipment contract. This means that the risk of loss and title for such items pass to you upon our delivery to the carrier.

Returns, Refunds, and Title

Sizzle does not take title to returned items until the item arrives at our Merchant’s location. At our Merchant’s discretion, a refund may be issued without requiring a return. In this situation, Sizzle’s Merchant does not take title to the refunded item. 

Product descriptions

Sizzle attempts to be as accurate as possible. However, Sizzle does not warrant that product descriptions or other content of any Sizzle Service is accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free. If a product offered by Sizzle itself is not as described, your sole remedy is to return it in unused condition.

Pricing

List Price means the suggested retail price of a product as provided by a manufacturer, supplier, or seller. We regularly check List Prices against prices recently found on Sizzle and other retailers.


With respect to items sold by Sizzle, we cannot confirm the price of an item until you order. Despite our best efforts, a small number of the items in our catalog may be mispriced. If the correct price of an item sold by Sizzle is higher than our stated price, we will, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before shipping or cancel your order and notify you of such cancellation. Other merchants may follow different policies in the event of a mispriced item.


We generally do not charge your credit card until after your order has entered the shipping process or, for digital products, until we make the digital product available to you.

APP Permissions

When you use apps created by Sizzle, such as the Sizzle App you may grant certain permissions to us for your device. Most mobile devices provide you with information about these permissions.

You may not use any Sizzle Service if you are the subject of U.S. sanctions or of sanctions consistent with U.S. law imposed by the governments of the country where you are using Sizzle Services. You must comply with all U.S. or other export and re-export restrictions that may apply to goods, software (including Sizzle Software), technology, and services.

Other Businesses

Parties other than Sizzle operate stores, provide services or software, or sell product lines through the Sizzle Services. In addition, we provide links to the sites of affiliated companies and certain other businesses. If you purchase any of the products or services offered by these businesses or individuals, you are purchasing directly from those third parties, not from Sizzle. We are not responsible for examining or evaluating, and we do not warrant, the offerings of any of these businesses or individuals (including the content of their Web sites). Sizzle does not assume any responsibility or liability for the actions, product, and content of all these and any other third parties.
