If you are an app user, your privacy statement terms are in a separate section below.
Summary of Main Terms
1. Flex Rewards takes data privacy seriously. The data collected from our systems is treated as highly sensitive information.
2. As a pre-condition of customers joining a Merchant’s loyalty program on the Flex Rewards app, all our app users (i.e. your customers) will be asked to expressly consent to releasing their names and email addresses to the Merchant. Merchants can view customer names and email addresses on their Flex Rewards dashboard. Merchants are free to copy and retain this data subject to compliance with local data protection laws. By using our service, Merchants agree not to sell or share this information with any third parties. If a Merchant cancels service, we are not obligated to continue making this data available to the Merchant.
3. Depending on which country you are from, customers may have the right to request deletion of their personal information. If Flex Rewards is requested to remove a user’s personal information, we will comply. Merchants must also comply with any request to remove customer information from their records.
4. While we strive to maintain the strictest data security measures, there is always a possibility that our systems could be subject to malicious attack or hacks. In the event of a data breach, we will take all measures to mitigate any harm to our app users and to our Merchants. However, you agree not to hold us responsible for events like this that are not under our control.
1. Data Ownership
All data collected from the Flex Rewards app remains the sole and exclusive property of Flex Rewards. As part of our service to you, we display the names and email addresses of each user that joins your loyalty program (“Customer Data”) on your Flex Rewards Dashboard. You may view, copy and download this Customer Data during the term of service with Flex Rewards. However, you may not directly or indirectly sell, share, transfer, license, or assign Customer Data to any third parties. Customer Data is provided to you under a non-exclusive revocable license with Flex Rewards. If your service is terminated with Flex Rewards for any reason, your license to use the Customer Data shall automatically cease.
2. Customer Consent
Customers who join your loyalty program will be asked to expressly consent to releasing their names and email addresses to you for email marketing purposes. If customers do not consent to such release of their contact information, they will be unable to join your loyalty program.
3. How We Use Merchant and Customer Data
We may use Merchant and Customer Data for, among other things, statistical and analytical purposes to improve the user experience, to make improvements to the way we deliver our service to Merchants and Customers, for design and product improvements, and for understanding and engaging our target audience for better marketing purposes. We may also share or exchange Merchant and Customer Data with technical partners to provide value-added services, new features, additional products, or other enhancements to the Merchant or Customer experience with Flex Rewards.
4. Images & Logos Uploaded to the Dashboard
You agree that we have the right to use images, logos or other information that you upload to your Dashboard in the App so that we can display your program details on the Flex Rewards app to our users. It is your responsibility to ensure that you have the proper licenses and legal permissions to use such images or logos.
5. Financial Data
We do not retain your credit card information. Financial information is processed through Stripe.
Flex Rewards has implemented administrative, technical, and physical security controls that are designed to safeguard your information. However, no online activity is ever fully secure or error-free. While we strive to protect your information, we cannot guarantee that your information is absolutely secure. Please keep this in mind when disclosing any information to Flex Rewards.
Please recognize that protecting your information is also your responsibility. We urge you to take every precaution to protect your information when you are on the Internet, or when you communicate with us and with others through the Internet. Change your passwords often, use a combination of letters and numbers, and make sure you use a secure browser. If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure (for example, if you feel that the security of your account might have been compromised), or if you suspect someone else is using your account, please let us know immediately by contacting us as indicated in the Contact Us section below.
In the event of a security breach you hereby agree to indemnify Flex Rewards, its directors, employees, affiliates and subsidiaries, and hold us harmless from any direct, indirect or consequential loss, cost or damage that you may incur as a result of such breach.
7. Data Retention
We will retain your account information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you services and to maintain a record of your transactions for financial reporting purposes. We will also retain and use your account information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements. We may retain aggregate or anonymized data indefinitely.
8. Third-Party Sites
Some of the functionality may be provided by third parties. For example, we use services like Stripe for payment processing. These third parties are not under our control and Flex Rewards is not responsible for their privacy policies or practices. If you provide any personal information to any third party or through any such third-party website, we recommend that you familiarize yourself with the privacy policies and practices of that third party.
9. Directory Listing and Social Media Usage

We may do so by promoting your business on the Flex Rewards website, informing our audience that you have joined Flex Rewards on our social media channels like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Telegram and TikTok. You agree that we may use your logo, business name, store address, website link, and your business images etc. for such marketing purposes. You may request that we take down or modify any such images by sending a request to [email protected]
10. Children’s Information

If you are a parent or guardian of a child under the age of 13 and believe he or she has disclosed personally identifiable information to us, please contact us at privacy[email protected] A parent or guardian of a child under age 13 may review and request deletion of the child’s personal information.
11. Accessing and Correcting Your Personal information, and Your Choices
Keeping your personal information current helps ensure that we provide you with the most relevant services. You can access and update your personal information via your account profile. While we are ready to assist you in managing your registrations, deactivating your account, and removing your active profile and data, we cannot always delete records of past interactions and transactions. For example, we are required to retain records relating to payments issued to you for financial reporting and compliance reasons. In addition, because of the way we maintain certain services, after you delete certain information, we may temporarily retain backup copies of such information before it is permanently deleted.
If we send you marketing emails about services that may interest you, each email will contain instructions permitting you to “opt-out” of receiving future marketing or other communications.
You may also contact us at [email protected] to access, modify or request deletion of your personal information.
