and how the data is used and shared.

Exclusions and limitations to the 5% cash back apply. Go to http://shop.upromise.com and click on "Store Info" next to the online partner to see the applicable cash back amount and product exclusions for that partner, if any.

2 Upromise members can earn $.01 cash back for every 5 valid searches conducted through the RewardU search bar. A valid search is a unique search that results in at least one search result back from the search provider. Limited to 30 valid searches or $.06 per day. Members will receive their cash back earnings for valid searches made through RewardU within 90 days following each completed search. Offer may be modified or cancelled at any time without notice. Additional terms and conditions may apply.

By installing or upgrading RewardU, you understand and agree that RewardU collects and processes all search criteria you may submit in the RewardU search box, along with information about your internet browser, your installation of RewardU, your RewardU settings, your computer's IP address, a unique ID assigned to your RewardU toolbar (the "Toolbar ID"), a unique ID (the "Upromise ID") which is not your Upromise account number, but is another number which may identify you personally to Upromise but not to our RewardU service provider, and the URL of the website from which you came (if any) (collectively, the "Event Information"). The RewardU service provider cannot use the Upromise ID or the Toolbar ID to identify you personally, but may have information from another source which would allow it to personally identify you.

If you accept Upromise Search as your browser's default search provider (through the option provided on the RewardU installation page), then RewardU also collects and processes all search criteria you may submit in any browser search boxes or otherwise where the browser defaults to a search, along with the Event Information.

These search criteria (which may contain personal, financial or health information to the extent that you include such information in the search criteria you submit) and Event Information will be shared with our RewardU service provider and the RewardU search provider (currently, Yahoo!). Similar to conducting a search directly on yahoo.com, all such transmissions to the RewardU search provider are sent unencrypted over the public Internet, so please use caution when including any search criteria so that they do not include any personal or other sensitive information. The RewardU search provider cannot use the Upromise ID or the Toolbar ID to identify you personally, but may have information from another source which would allow it to personally identify you.

The information collected by RewardU is used by Upromise to operate and improve RewardU and the Upromise service, and to help us understand how often individual Upromise partner websites are visited. It may also be used to offer third party products and services, to process transactions and calculate cash back rewards and as otherwise permitted by applicable law. Upromise may share the information collected by RewardU with its parent company Sallie Mae and its affiliates. In addition, all search criteria you enter and the Event Information will be used and/or disclosed by the RewardU search provider to provide the search results and as otherwise described in its privacy policy.

In addition, RewardU collects and processes the search results from searches conducted through the RewardU toolbar and any RewardU compatible search engine so that RewardU may identify and highlight Upromise partners in the search results.

When you visit a website (regardless of whether you access such website via a RewardU search), RewardU will review that website URL to determine if it is a Upromise partner website and, if it is, the URL as well as the Event Information will be collected and processed by RewardU, and shared with our RewardU service provider and the Upromise partner in order to accurately credit cash back earned by Upromise members. If you are a Upromise member, you will be identified to the Upromise partner as a Upromise member via the Upromise ID. The Upromise partner cannot use the Upromise ID to identify you personally, but may have information from another source (for example, if you provide your contact information in connection with your online purchases, applications or other transactions at the Upromise partner's website) which would allow it to personally identify you. In the event you make an online purchase, application or other transaction with the Upromise partner, including through a secure session, Upromise will receive information about your online purchase, application or transaction, including financial or health information if applicable to the transaction.
