What is Ghostery Rewards?
Ghostery Rewards is an optional, private-by-design feature that delivers you high-value offers as you browse and make purchases online. Rewards can be viewed, managed, and turned on or off at any time within the Ghostery extension or Ghostery Tab. It is powered by our sister company, MyOffrz.
How does it work?
All Rewards come pre-loaded within your local Ghostery extension, where they remain passive until unlocked. A Reward is unlocked when you complete a set of action triggers that indicate your active interest in making a purchase for which a related offer exists. These triggers funnel potential Rewards based on a set of logic criteria until a match is found and displayed.
How is my data kept private in this process?
Ghostery Rewards operates locally, meaning it is completely contained within your browser and does not transmit personal information back to Ghostery, Cliqz, or any other third party companies. Because your data never leaves your device, it remains in your possession and under your control – we do not collect, process, or store it centrally on a server. We cannot profile you or share your data with anyone else. In this way, Rewards is fully private-by-design, making it a powerful new way to gain real value by completely anonymous means.
What can I expect in the future from Rewards?
We are working hard to improve Rewards by expanding our client base and improving usability and design. We also plan on integrating Rewards into future products, including a new Ghostery Tab currently in the works. Furthermore, we seek to bring this feature to our users in the United States and globally (currently it operates only within Germany).
