Extension Privacy

What data we collect and why

In order to provide our products, Tenere collects information that you share directly with us when you use our website, extension. Though you don’t have to, you can choose to provide your email to set up an account with us, which lets you add items to your Favorite Store, earn Tree and donate to Projects, see a personalized recommendation feed, and more. You can also set up your profile with your name and other info for a more personalized experience.

Tenere also collects technical information about your device and use of Tenere to make sure that our products are working correctly. The information we collect is geared to providing Tenere members with a better way to shop online and to help us develop, improve, and market our services.

Account and Profile Information.

When you become a member of Tenere, you can use your Tenere' account to login with extension

As you continue to use Tenere extension, you might also provide information when you:

  1. save items to get latest coupons
  2. share coupons, promo codes, and deals you found
  3. click “Favorite” on stores you like
  4. communicate with Tenere through email or other means

Tenere extension does not track your search engine history, emails, or your browsing on any site that is not a retail website (a site where you can shop and make a purchase). When you are on a pre-approved retail site, to help you save money, Tenere extension will collect information about that site that lets us know which coupons and promos to find for you. We may also collect information about pricing and availability of items, which we can share with the rest of the Tenere community.

Shopping and Usage Data.


On retail sites, Tenere extension collects the name of the retailer, page views, and in some cases, product information that allows us to track price changes and update our product catalog. The information you share, and we collect, enables us to improve our products and gives us insights about coupons, deals, pricing, and availability of retail items, which we can share with the rest of the Tenere community. We may also use this information to provide you with a more tailored, relevant experience or show sponsored product offers that may interest you.

Aggregate and Anonymized Data


We may also use the information we collect in aggregate or otherwise anonymized form. This lets us look at interactions with our site and products generally and does not identify you or any specific person. We use this general data for research, development, marketing, analytics, and to enhance the shopping experience for the Tenere community.

What data we do not collect


We collect information that we believe can help us save our users time and money. This does not include, and we do not collect, any information from your search engine history, emails, or from websites that are not retail sites.

We also do not collect bank or credit card information.

How we share your data

We know how important your personal data is to you, so we will never sell it. We’ll only share it with your consent or in ways you’d expect (as we explain here). That means we will share your data if needed to complete your purchase, with businesses who help us operate Tenere, or if we are legally required to do so.

How we protect your data

The security of your information is important to us. We have a team dedicated to protecting your information and have put in place physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards.

These measures include limiting access, using encryption, testing for vulnerabilities, advanced malware detection, employing pseudonymization and anonymization techniques, and more.

Though we hate to say it, despite our efforts, we can’t guarantee that user information will not be accessed, viewed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed as a result of a breach of any of our safeguards. You provide us with information at your own risk.

Tenere only retains information about you as long as you keep using Tenere. We’ll also keep information if we need it to meet our legal obligations and to defend against legal claims.

How We Use Cookies And Similar Technologies

Like most other online services, Tenere uses cookies, pixel tags, web beacons, and other markers (we’ll just call them “cookies”) to collect some of the data discussed in this Privacy Policy. These help us operate our products, analyze engagement and usage, and provide a relevant and personalized shopping experience. See below to learn how you can manage your cookie preferences.

Some cookies can be temporary (“session cookies” like those used for navigating your browser) and disappear once you close it. Others last longer (“persistent cookies,” like when you ask a site to remember your login) and are saved to your computer until you delete them.

Our cookies serve several important functions:
 

Operations: These are cookies that we need to make the Tenere services work, and include remembering your login credentials and entries into a form, adding items to a shopping cart, navigation, and standard tech checks like load balancing or javascript checks.

Analytics: These types of cookies help Tenere monitor the traffic and activity on our site, and to coordinate our own marketing campaigns. While they do not identify you specifically, they may be indirectly linked to your unique user ID. We aggregate and anonymize this data to help us detect fraud, understand trends, broad demographic data, and the general operation of our site.

Attribution: We use third-party pixels on our landing page to tell our advertising partners that someone found Tenere through one of their ads. In addition, third-party affiliates may use cookies on our behalf, so that Tenere can get a commission from a merchant when you make a purchase (Tenere donates a part of the commission to tree planting). In both these cases, Tenere does not reveal any information that can be used to identify you.

If you want to disable cookies entirely, your browser might have an option to do that. For more information, including instructions on disabling cookies, please visit: http://www.allaboutcookies.org/
