Upromise Toolbar

What is Upromise Toolbar?

From the EULA: "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."
