Review the company’s privacy policy before creating an account

When you make an account with an organization, they will begin collecting some of your information to better understand your spending habits as well as their client base as a whole. It’s normal for a company to collect information on purchase history as well as some demographic information, like age. The data that a company collects should be listed in their privacy policy. If you see anything listed that you aren’t comfortable with, don’t create an account with that company.
