Categories of Information:
Vaster operates a Website located at www.Vaster.com and the Application through which the Services are provided.
There are several areas on the Website and/or within the Application where you may be asked to enter both personal and non-personal information including, by way of example and without limitation, your name, address, phone number, credit card information, birthday, social media usernames, and information regarding your cell phone and/or other mobile device. In addition, when you use the Application, Vaster automatically receives and records information on our server logs from your browser or mobile platform, including your IP address and location. Vaster also collects and uses additional information from users such as transaction location, purchase activity, Application open date and time, idle time, and all clicks and/or swipes within the application (together with time and order). Vaster may also collect information posted by users on social media sites for users that have opted to connect to or otherwise link Vaster with social media accounts. We treat this data as non-personal information for purposes of providing the Services, except where we are required to treat it as personal information under applicable law.
Additionally, Vaster may receive personal information from our Vendors in connection with your registration in our Vendors’ loyalty programs.
Vaster DOES NOT sell or share any personal information about you to or with any person or organization except (i) as authorized by you, (ii) as set forth in the relevant portion of the Website, Application or within any agreement between us, (iii) in connection with providing various products or Services to you (either directly or through one or more third parties), (iv) as may be required by law or court order, or (v) as otherwise set forth herein.

In addition, Vaster may sell, disclose or otherwise use information gathered on the Website or within the Application to third parties on an aggregated basis such that it does not identify you personally. More specifically, Vaster may provide to third parties aggregate statistics or information about sales, trends, loyalty program usage, online traffic patterns, related information or other statistical de-identified information.
