This program is voluntary and made available to you so we can better gather information about you to improve your shopping experience and that of our other members, and in the process to be able to improve the WYNGLE Cash Back Program to better reward all our members. You may withdraw or change any permissions granted to us under the Opt-In participation program at any time. Refusal to accept the sharing of information under our Opt-In participation program will by no means affect your participation or benefits under the WYNGLE Cash back Program.

Please note that for paying out of collected Cash Back we are required to obtain from you your address details and your Paypal email address. Without this information we will not be able to authorize the payout.

Following are a number of Opt-In choices we offer:

  • Share Your Purchases

    You are offered the opportunity to share the purchases you have made. You can easily share those purchases with your friends, in your public profile and through other companies (such as Facebook or Twitter). By default your purchases will not be shared with anyone.

  • Review Your Purchases

    You can add reviews to your purchases via the WYNGLE administrative interface. You have the choice to keep this review to yourself, but you can also choose to make the review available for others to benefit from your opinion about the purchases. This can be done anonymously if you wish to do so. By default the reviews are private.

  • Tag Your Purchases

    You can tag your purchases for easier searching and referencing. By default your purchases are untagged, which can easily be found in the WYNGLE administrative interface.

  • Complete Your Profile

    WYNGLE provides you with the opportunity to add additional information (date of birth, education etc.). This information can help us to better offer you products and services that we think match your interest. Except for the information needed to make a payout, this information is non mandatory.

Your choices made with WYNGLE’s Opt-In Program can be changed at any time. Please note that there could be a short (less than 48 hours) period needed to have your changes being reflected in all systems used by WYNGLE.
