The Website provides visitors with a means of access to offers from a range of third party advertisers, including those offering insurance, travel, finance, utilities and on-line gambling. We do not supply any products or services you may access via the Website – all products and services are provided by, and purchased from, independent third party sites (even where these may be co-branded with InboxPounds®) to which you navigate via the Website (“Advertised Sites”).

Members must be living individuals, and not corporations or any other type of entity. Members must provide a valid e-mail address during registration in order to activate their Account. The country listed in your personal member profile associated with your Account (“Member Profile”) must be the country you are both living in, and logging into your Account from. In addition, any time you provide information to this Website, to any advertisers on the Website (“Advertisers”, as more fully defined in Section VI), or in response to any Offer, such information must be accurate and complete and be your own information and not the information of any other person. This includes, but is not limited to, the registration process, Profile Surveys, and any other place where information is requested.
Members must comply with all applicable laws and regulations as they relate to the use of this Website or relations with us.
Members may not create more than one Account with the Website. In addition, we do not allow:
Upon the creation of an account, a member will earn an initial Cash earnings, which will be credited to their Account as described in other sections of these Terms and Conditions (“Signup Bonus”). To qualify for the Signup Bonus, Members must sign up and activate their Account.
Members may cancel their Account any time by clicking the “Cancel Account” link in the “My Account” tab. In addition, all PaidEmails™ sent to Members include a link to the cancellation page. If a Member cancels their Account, they will forfeit all their Cash in their Account and referrals. In addition, any requested or pending payments for that Member are removed and forfeited.
In connection with your Account, you will create a personal password (“Password”). You are responsible for keeping your Password confidential and secure, and you are responsible for all actions taken using your Password.
To create an Account, to be eligible to accrue Cash, or to otherwise use this Website, you must be at least eighteen (18) years old.
Members are responsible for maintaining accurate and complete contact information and promptly updating such information if they move, their contact information otherwise changes, or if a Member has difficulty receiving emails from InboxPounds® at the e-mail address provided. If a payment posted to a Member is returned to us for any reason, including our being provided with inaccurate or outdated contact information, we will hold such payment for up to ninety (90) days and will resend the payment upon request and receipt of correct contact information within the ninety (90) day period. If we do not receive a request to resend payment along with correct contact information within ninety (90) days, then we will destroy the cheque, all Account Cash giving rise to the payment will be deemed forfeit, and the payment is forfeited and permanently waived. (“Cash”, as defined more fully in clause VII of these Terms and Conditions)
Members are responsible for selecting a secure and reliable mail delivery address for their payments and other communications. We are not responsible for any stolen or lost cheques and will not replace cheques allegedly cashed improperly by third parties so long as such cheque was sent to the mailing address as indicated in your Account information at the time such cheque was sent. If your household postbox is not secure, we recommend you obtain a secure post office box.
By agreeing to these Terms, you're agreeing that you will also follow these rules: (1) Do not publicly display or use the Website or features to share inappropriate Content or material including but not limited to; nudity, pornography, graphic violence, use harassing or hate comments to employees of the Website and/or its members. This includes the Website and all forms of social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc.). Failure to comply may result in the loss of account and earnings. (2) You are responsible for all usage on your Account, whether or not authorized including your log in, password and Account information.
Members can use their Referral URL to refer other Members to the Website. Because InboxPounds® allows only one Account per computer, our referral tracking software will not allow one Member to refer another Member if they are using the same computer.
Members may not send unsolicited email to persons they do not know in order to refer other Members to the Website and may only forward emails to people they know would be happy to receive them. We cannot possibly list all acceptable and unacceptable methods of advertising. If a Member has a specific question as to whether or not a particular advertising method is acceptable, they should contact us (using the Contact Us page) prior to engaging in that action.
Members may use our Refer-a-Friend Service to automatically send an e-mail notification to their friends. However, if the Member’s Refer-a-Friend e-mail results in a complaint, the Member’s Account may be terminated. You should use the Refer-a-Friend Service to notify only your close personal friends, where you know that the friend will be happy to receive the e-mail notification.
Members may not make untrue or exaggerated statements when advertising InboxPounds® or engage in any unfair or deceptive trade practice as defined by law. For example, a Member may not put on their website: “Join InboxPounds® and get paid £1.00 for every Email you read!” If the Member provides information about InboxPounds® on their website, they must ensure the information is updated and accurate. A Member’s Account may be terminated for false advertising.
You must be especially careful to obey applicable laws and regulations regarding testimonial or endorsement by you recommending InboxPounds®, an Advertiser or Offer, so that such testimonial or endorsement is not false or misleading. For example, if you made an online statement recommending InboxPounds®, then you should also disclose the material connection between yourself and InboxPounds®.
Members will be instantly credited 10% of all Qualified Earnings generated by Members they refer to InboxPounds®. There is no limit to the amount of referrals you can have or the amount of cash you can earn from your referrals. Qualified Earnings are defined within the InboxPounds® Knowledge base
A Member’s Account may be set to inactive for any of the following reasons:
If InboxPounds® receives a bounce-back error message or similar message when sending an e-mail to you, then your Account will be set to inactive. A bounce-back message may occur if you have added InboxPounds® to your “Ignore List” or marked a message from InboxPounds® as spam, or for other reasons. You should add the address firstname.lastname@example.org to your e-mail “Allow List” and/or “Address Book”.
If you do not visit our website while being logged in or confirm at least one PaidEmail™ in a 10-day period, your Account may become inactive. InboxPounds® reserves the right to change this number at any time.
Payment Requests are removed if a Member’s Account becomes inactive. The automated system that deactivates Members based on the above criteria runs immediately prior to Payment Requests being processed. Therefore, it is possible for a Member’s Account to be active right up until their payment is processed. InboxPounds® urges Members to ensure their Account remains active in order to avoid any delay in processing payments.
If your Account becomes inactive, you can reactivate it within 6 months of the Account being placed on inactive status by logging into the Member’s Section and requesting a confirmation e-mail be sent to you. When you click the link provided in the confirmation e-mail, your Account will be reactivated.
If you do not visit our Website while being logged in or confirm a PaidEmail™ at least one time in a 6-month period, your Account will be permanently removed and all Cash or other items accrued will be forfeited. In the event of the death of any Member, such Member’s Account is automatically and immediately terminated, and all Cash or other items accrued in such Account are forfeited.
InboxPounds® has established relationships with advertisers and partners (collectively, “Advertisers”) to provide Members with a variety of ways to earn cash (“Cash Earning Activity/Activities” or “Offers”). Cash Earning Activities are made available to Members based on a variety of factors, including demographic information, physical location, and participation level with InboxPounds®. InboxPounds® and our Advertisers make no guarantees regarding the number or amount of Cash Earning Activities that will be available to Members at any time.
When a Member completes an Offer through the Website, they are creating a direct relationship with the Advertiser who provided the Offer. Members should review the Advertiser’s terms and conditions relating to the Offer prior to completing the Offer. InboxPounds® assumes no liability, obligation, or responsibility for any Offer on our Website, or for any subsequent billing or relationship that occurs between Member and Advertiser. Members should contact the Advertiser directly if they have any questions or disputes relating to the Offer.
Some Offers provide additional incentives, such as gift cards, for completing the Offer. In these cases, the incentive is provided directly by the Advertiser to the Member, and is independent of the InboxPounds® program. There may be additional requirements to receive these incentives beyond what is required to receive credit from InboxPounds®. InboxPounds® is not responsible for these additional incentives.
Unless otherwise stated, Offers are available for first-time customers only. Members will not be credited for completing an Offer if they have completed the Offer in the past, through the Website, any other website, or with the Advertiser directly.
To be credited for completing an Offer, Members should complete the Offer immediately after clicking the Offer on our Website or in a PaidEmail™. Returning to the Advertiser’s website at a later time to complete the Offer or completing the Offer over the phone may result in not being credited for completing the Offer.
Most Offers will be credited to the Member’s Account within a few business days from completion, while others may take up to 30 days to credit. Members should read and comply with all requirements of an Offer to ensure timely credit.
InboxPounds® credits Members for completing Offers based on information we receive from our Advertisers. Thus, the Advertiser has the final say in whether or not a Member is credited for completing an Offer. InboxPounds® makes no guarantee that Members will receive credit for completing an Offer. Members should save all confirmation/welcome emails (and similar information) they receive from the Advertiser after completing an Offer. This information can often be used to credit a Member’s account if this has not happened automatically.
Many Offers on InboxPounds® include a free trial period that enables the Member to try the product or service risk-free. Members should only complete these Offers if they have a genuine interest in the product or service. Cancelling a free trial immediately after joining may result in not being credited for completing the Offer. InboxPounds® reserves the right, in our sole discretion, to terminate a Member’s account and forfeit all earnings and referrals, in addition to any other legal remedies, in the event a Member’s activity appears fraudulent.
You can earn Cash which is credited to your Account as described in the other sections of these Terms and Conditions, and which is subject to your compliance with all Terms and Conditions. Your Account, including any Cash or other credits in your Account, is non-transferable and non-assignable, and may not be pooled, lent, sold, or exchanged. We may change rules about requesting Cash payment or redeeming other credits in your Account at any time and such changed rules will apply to Cash already accrued as well as to Cash accrued in the future. You may request Cash payment out of your Account (also referred to as “redeeming” Cash) only as permitted by these Terms and Conditions. Redeeming Cash and receipt of any payment by you is contingent upon your: (1) full compliance with these Terms and Conditions; and (2) compliance with the specific rules or terms then in effect for the particular redemption offer.
You may not redeem Cash until you have accrued at least twenty pounds (£20.00) in your account (the “Minimum Payment Amount”) or such other amount as may be designated by us. The terms “Cash”, “Pounds” and similar terms are used interchangeably in this Website to mean any and all sums attributed to your Account. You have no right to redeem the Cash in your Account, and we have no liability or obligation to pay you whatsoever, unless and until you have accrued at least the Minimum Payment Amount in your Account. Unless and until you have accrued the Minimum Payment Amount, such Cash is deemed a contingent liability, which is entirely contingent upon: (1) your accrual of at least the Minimum Payment Amount in your Account, and (2) your full compliance with these Terms and Conditions. Unless and until your Account balance reaches the Minimum Payment Amount, the Cash in your Account has no cash value.
For example, if you open an account with an initial balance of 1 pound (£1.00), and then accrue another fourteen pounds (£14.00) in cash in that account, giving a total of £15.00, you are not eligible to receive any payment, and we are not liable to you for any amount. In this example you would have to earn yet another five pounds (£5.00), giving a total of twenty pounds (£20.00) accrued balance, before you would be entitled to any payment.
Currently, the Minimum Payment Amount required to request a cheque payment is £20.00; however, this amount may change from time to time.
You can request payment of the Cash in your Account, subject to the remainder of these Terms and Conditions, by clicking the “Request Payment” link under the “My Account” tab. As noted above, you may not request payment and the Cash in your Account has no actual cash value until you have accrued at least the Minimum Payment Amount. A description of each payment request method will be displayed, and if the Member’s Account balance is large enough, a link to request that method of payment will also be displayed. Members may have only one pending payment request at a time.
You are responsible for any and all tax liability arising from or associated with your use of this Website, including liability arising from your accrual of Cash or your redemption of Cash for cash or other items.
Requests to redeem Cash and send payments are processed on the first Wednesday that occurs at least 8 days after the payment was requested. This means payment requests will be processed between 10 and 16 days after request. After requesting payment, Members can view their scheduled payment processing date by clicking the “My Profile” link under the “My Account” tab.
Payments are processed on Wednesday of every week and generally posted within 3 days, depending on holidays and how many payment requests there are for that week.
All payments are inspected immediately prior to processing. Payment requests belonging to Members who have become inactive (as described above in Section IV) or who have duplicate Accounts will not be processed and will be removed.
Any time you return a purchased item for which you received Cash in your Account, and any time you void, cancel, rescind, or reverse any Cash shopping transaction for which you received Cash in your Account, InboxPounds® may subtract a corresponding amount of Cash from your Account. Similarly, if any Advertiser notifies us that it is reversing its transaction with you for any reason on any of our Cash Earning Activities, we will subtract a corresponding amount of Cash from your Account. A pattern of completing Offers followed by reversals is considered fraudulent activity, and may result in the termination of your Account and forfeiture of your Cash earnings and referrals.
InboxPounds® reserves the right to request further information from Members to ensure they have not fraudulently completed Offers. This information may include, but is not limited to, a copy of the credit card statement that was used to complete the Offers, in order to ensure a stolen credit card was not used.
InboxPounds® reserves the right to place any payment request on hold, for any reason, until the requested information has been provided by the Member. Ample notice will be given to the Member to provide this information. If the Member does not provide this information before their payment is scheduled to be processed, their Account will be suspended until they do so. All decisions by InboxPounds® regarding fraud or suspected fraud are binding and final.

It is important that the personal data we hold about you is accurate and current. Please keep us informed if your personal data changes during your relationship with us.
This website may include links to third-party websites, plug-ins and applications. Clicking on those links or enabling those connections may allow third parties to collect or share data about you. We do not control these third-party websites and are not responsible for their privacy statements. When you leave our website, we encourage you to read the privacy notice of every website you visit.
Personal data, or personal information, means any information about an individual from which that person can be identified.
We may collect, use, store and transfer different kinds of personal data about you which we have grouped together follows:
Personal data can be anonymised or pseudonymised, which means ensuring that when it is processed it either no longer includes any identifying elements or has those elements replaced with a value like a number from which an individual cannot be identified (Anonymous Data). Personal data can be considered to be Anonymous Data either on a temporary basis, because we still hold the means to re-associate it with your information from which you are personally identifiable, or on an irreversible basis by us destroying or irretrievably removing the identifying elements entirely so they cannot be re-associated in future. We will sometimes use your data in a form which is Anonymous Data as part of our security measures to minimise the risk of it being used to in an unauthorised way whilst being processed.
We do not collect any Special Categories of Personal Data about you (this includes details about your race or ethnicity, religious or philosophical beliefs, sex life, sexual orientation, political opinions, trade union membership, information about your health and genetic and biometric data). Nor do we collect any information about criminal convictions and offences.
Where we need to collect personal data by law, or under the terms of a contract we have with you and you fail to provide that data when requested, we may not be able to perform the contract we have or are trying to enter into with you (for example, to provide you with goods or services). In this case, we may have to cancel a product or service you have with us but we will notify you if this is the case at the time. By way of example, we cannot establish a member account for you if we do not have your Member Identity Data and we cannot pay out your rewards if we do not have your Member Reward Payment Data.
Of the types of personal data identified above, Profile Data is personal data you provide to us entirely at your option, but it will make a significant difference to your experience whilst using our website and services. In particular, the quality and appropriateness of the Offers that we send to you are considerably enhanced the more Profile Data we hold about you. You will still receive Offers even if you choose not to provide us with Profile Data, but you should be aware these Offers will not have been tailored to suit your personal preferences if we do not hold sufficient Profile Data and so you may not find them appropriate or be able to qualify for the same sort of rewards for everything we send to you. You are always in control of how much or how little Profile Data we hold about you as this is an area of your member’s account which you can alter at any time, correcting, updating or removing your Profile Data as you choose.
We use different methods to collect data from and about you including through:
We will only use your personal data when the law allows us to. Most commonly, we will use your personal data in the following circumstances:
We have set out below, in a table format, a description of all the ways we plan to use your personal data, and which of the legal bases we rely on to do so. We have also identified what our legitimate interests are where appropriate.
Note that we may process your personal data for more than one lawful ground depending on the specific purpose for which we are using your data. Please contacts us if you need details about the specific legal ground we are relying on to process your personal data where more than one ground has been set out in the table below.
Being an InboxPounds® member is all about you receiving great opportunities to earn rewards through our membership service. We will still send you Offers, even if you don’t provide us with any Profile Data, so if you don’t want to fill in those details you still get the chance to earn cash rewards with InboxPounds®.
However, the best way to get the most out of your membership with InboxPounds® and to earn more cash rewards, is if we can use the Profile Data that you provide to us in order to make sure we only send you the particular Offers that we think will suit you the best. We use Profile Data to learn about your personal preferences and interests and this will determine which Offers we send to you – this is a largely automated process known as profiling. The only decisions that our profiling methods make about you and your personal information is to determine what type of Offers you are most likely to want to see from us given your personal preferences and demographic information. Our profiling methods do not get used for any other purpose than to give you great Offers and improve our service to you.
We strive to provide you with choices regarding certain personal data uses, particularly around the type of Offers, marketing and advertising that you see when you visit our website or receive opportunities to earn cash rewards with us. With this in mind, we have established our Profile Dashboard where you can view and make certain decisions about your personal data use.
You can also make specific choices about whether you consent to your Profile Data being shared with third parties for the purposes of matching their Offers to your personal preferences. On the Profile Dashboard you’ll find a clear box which you can tick if you are happy for us to share your Profile Data only with those Named Market Research Partners which are specifically listed below. You can untick this box at any time to withdraw your consent (opt out) to your Profile Data being shared with the Named Market Research Partners.
A “cookie” is a small data file that may be saved to and stored on your computer when you visit a website or open an email. Cookies are widely used in order to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the site. Cookies permit a website to “remember” whether your computer has visited the website before and helps the website create a more personalised experience for you and records activities taken by you, such as Offers completed. In this way cookies also allow us to verify the identity of a new member registration to ensure it matches the details of a Member Referral and so allow us to credit you with additional rewards for making that Member Referral.
For a full list of all cookies used on our website, please follow this link to cookie information.
In addition to cookie technology, InboxPounds® use additional third party technology and tracking tools to record Offers and activities completed by you, friends referred by you, and to communicate information about you, such as anonymised demographic information (e.g., age, gender), in order to target Offers and advertisements to specific groups as requested by advertisers. Cookies and other tracking technology are collectively referred to as “Cookies and Recording Tools”.
Your computer permits you to change the settings on your web browser to not accept and/or disable Cookies and Recording Tools. However, if you do not accept Cookies and Recording Tools used by InboxPounds®, you may not be able to use certain functions on the website or on certain links to external websites. More importantly, if you do not accept Cookies and Recording Tools you will not receive credit for Offers or other actions completed by you because we are unable to track and record your activity. If you do not want to accept Cookies and Recording Tools, you must stop using this website.
Except for essential cookies, all cookies will expire after the period of time provided here.
After you have logged on as a Member into the InboxPounds® Member’s Section, cookies are used to remember your Member name and password so they do not need to be entered during every visit to our website. You can logout of the Member’s Section if you do not wish to have this information saved.
We will only use your personal data for the purposes for which we collected it, unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose. If you wish to get an explanation as to how the processing for the new purpose is compatible with the original purpose, please contact us.
If we need to use your personal data for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you and we will explain the legal basis which allows us to do so.
Please note that we may process your personal data without your knowledge or consent, in compliance with the above rules, where this is required or permitted by law.
We may have to share your personal data with the parties set out below for the purposes set out in the table in paragraph 4 above.
We require all third parties to respect the security of your personal data and to treat it in accordance with the law. We do not allow our third-party service providers to use your personal data for their own purposes and only permit them to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.
We occasionally use a variety of new technologies and social media options to communicate and interact with our members. These sites and applications include popular social networking and media sites. To better engage the public in ongoing dialog, we use certain third-party platforms including, but not limited to, Facebook and Twitter. These third-party websites and applications are web-based technologies that are not exclusively operated or controlled by us. When interacting on those websites, you may reveal certain personal information to us or to third parties. Other than when used by our employees for the purpose of responding to a specific message or request, we will not use, share, or retain your personal information.
We share your personal data within the CotterWeb Group. This will involve transferring your data outside the EEA.
Many of our External Third Parties are based outside the EEA so their processing of your personal data will involve a transfer of data outside the EEA.
Whenever we transfer your personal data out of the EEA, we ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to it by ensuring at least one of the following safeguards is implemented:
Please contact us if you want further information on the specific mechanism used by us when transferring your personal data out of the EEA.
We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.
We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.
We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.
By law and in order to answer any member payment queries or respond to any claims regarding payments made, we have to retain a record of some of the basic information about our customers (including Member Identity Data, Member Contact Data and Member Reward Payment Data) for seven years after they cease being members for these accounting and tax purposes. This record of historic payments we have made to you and the account to which those payments relate are kept separately from details of all other elements of your member account once your account is no longer active. This information is secured and access is further restricted to ensure these records are not used for any other purposes than to respond to such legal, accounting, tax and any other related payment queries or claims if necessary.
In all other respects, the personal data that you provide to us will only be retained for the life of your member account being active. If your member account is inactive for 6 months, the Member Identity Data, Member Contact Data and Member Reward Payment Data will be deleted from our member records databases and replaced with a string of numbers which means all other information such as any Transaction Data, Technical Data or Profile Data can no longer be re-associated with your personal information. Following a further period of 7 days, after which our back up facilities are overwritten, the only information retained relating to your member account will then permanently be Anonymous Data. Once it has become Anonymous Data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) your information will be retained indefinitely for research and statistical purposes without further notice to you.
In some circumstances you can ask us to delete your data: see Request erasure below for further information.
Under certain circumstances, you have rights under data protection laws in relation to your personal data. You have the right to:
Request access to your personal data (commonly known as a “data subject access request”). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.
You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.
We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.
We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.
Request correction of the personal data that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected, though we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us. With InboxPounds® and our My Account page you are always in control of the information we hold about you and so can ensure it is correct and accurate yourself at any time.
Request erasure of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with local law. Note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.
Object to processing of your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes. In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms.
Request restriction of processing of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data in the following scenarios: (a) if you want us to establish the data’s accuracy; (b) where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it; (c) where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or (d) you have objected to our use of your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.
Request the transfer of your personal data to you or to a third party. We will provide to you, or a third party you have chosen, your personal data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Note that this right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you.
Withdraw consent (opt out) at any time where we are relying on consent to process your personal data. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you and neither will the Named Market Research Partners who have also relied on your consent to process the Profile Data we have shared with them. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.
The right to file a complaint with your regional Data Protection Authority regarding the handling of your personal data by us. Please go to this list of Data Protection Authorities to locate contact information for your DPA.
If you wish to exercise any of the rights set out above, please contact us.

Prior to filling out the Profile Survey, consent is requested to authorize the disclosing your information. If we need to use your personal data for a purpose that is materially different from the purpose(s) for which you have previously provided consent, we will notify you and we will explain the legal basis which allows us to do so.
