For certain services, such as product purchase and our advertising programs, we also request credit card or other payment account information which we maintain in encrypted form on secure servers. All the information is collected in order to provide you with a better experience and to improve the quality of our services.

 Automatic Information Collection

When you use our Service, GDV collects the following types of information:


o Shopper's geo-location as reported from their mobile device.

o Usage history and preferences


In addition, we may receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with the Services we provide. GDV may automatically receive and record certain "traffic data" on our server logs from your browser including your IP address, GDV cookie information, and the page you requested. GDV uses this traffic data to help diagnose problems with its server, analyse trends and administer the Service.


Generally, the Service may automatically collect usage information, such as the numbers and frequency of visitors to the Site. This data is only used in the aggregate, that is, as a statistical measure, and not in a manner that would identify you personally to any third party. This type of collective data enables us to figure out how often users use parts of the Service, so we can make the Service appealing to as many users as possible. In addition, we may provide statistical information, not information about you personally, to our partners about how our users, collectively, use the Service. The Service may use the collected information to enhance the quality of service to you in terms of personal preferences, time of day, and your location.
