Reward Gateway (USA) Inc (“we”, “us” or “our”) is committed to upholding your privacy and respect your rights under the Privacy Act 1974 and other applicable laws.
This Privacy Notice ("Notice") describes how any personally identifiable information (“PII”, “personal information”) we collect from you or from third parties, including automotiveMastermind (the “administrator”) who we have entered into a License Agreement with, about you on this website (the “portal”, “The Launch Pad”) will be processed by us.
In the event of a conflict between the terms of this Notice and the terms of the License Agreement, the License Agreement shall prevail.
The Type of Information We Collect From you and How We Use It
We will collect various types of personal information from you when you use The Launch Pad, depending on the services which you use. Further details of how we use your personal data are set out below.
Before you register
The administrator has provided us with your information for an account to be created.
When you login
Each time you log in to The Launch Pad, we automatically conduct checks against your Internet Protocol (IP) address to ensure your security. This includes looking up your IP address against a “proxy denylist” to check that someone is not using your credentials and trying to hide their location. This proxy denylist is operated by MaxMind, Inc. If your IP address appears on it, we will not allow you to login.
We also look up the IP address in a static database we download from MaxMind Inc. to check which country the IP is affiliated with. This helps us to further protect your account against people who may have access to your credentials. If we do spot a change, we will alert you and ask you to confirm your login in order to verify your identity before continuing.
This information along with time and event data (such as successful or failed logins) are also recorded in our database for audit purposes.
Depending on the services you use on The Launch Pad, we may collect and process additional PII about you, as set out below.
When you send an eCard or when you make a nomination
If you ask us to send an eCard, you will need to provide us with the name of the person you are sending the eCard to (“the recipient”). If the recipient has already registered on The Launch Pad, we will send the eCard on your behalf to their registered email address.
If they have not already registered, you will also need to provide an email address which we will send the eCard on your behalf to. The recipient will be asked to confirm that they have read and understood this notice and agree to our Terms & Conditions before being able to view your message.
You must have the consent of the recipient to give us their name and, if applicable, email address and any personal information you disclose in your message to them. This information will also be disclosed to the administrator for the purposes of performance management.
When you write a blog or comment / react to content
When you write a blog or comment / react to content on the site, we will collect your name and any other personal information you choose to share via your blog or comment. This information will be visible to us and other users of the portal but will not be used for any other purpose.

We will only collect personal information from you where we need the personal information to enter into a contract or perform a contract with you (e.g. to provide you with a service), where the processing is in our legitimate interests when your interests and fundamental rights do not override those interests, where we have your consent, or where we have a legal obligation to collect and process personal information.
Where the provision of data is necessary to enter into a contract with us or for us to perform a contract with you and you choose not to provide the information we will not be able to provide our services to you.
You have the right to object to the processing of your personal information where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party), which is not overridden by your data protection interests or fundamental rights and freedoms. In particular we process your personal data to pursue the following legitimate interests:
- To prevent fraud on our platform;

This is a measure to ensure that personal information is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it.
