How do I collect rewards?You will receive rewards in form of Tokens. These tokens are awarded in random intervals while you browse the web. Think of tokens like a data dividend that you receive for using Cyder or like the interest you would receive from your bank. You can also choose to share data with companies that you trust in return for even more montly rewards. Data will only ever be shared with your permission and you can revoke access to your data at any point. Tokens are used to enter you into a monthly lottery and can be redeemed for hundreds of gift cards on the Cyder platform.
How do I redeem tokens?All tokens can be used to redeem gift cards from a selection of hundreds of consumer brands, including pre-paid VISA, Amazon, Starbucks, Best Buy, and many more. You will also automatically be entered into a monthly lottery that gives one lucky winner the chance to win a cash prize.
What data does Cyder collect?When you sign up, Cyder stores the following data : - Email - Postal Code This data is encrypted and we are unable to associate it with a username. When you have "Royalty Program" engaged, Cyder stores the following data : - URLs - Metadata - Time of site visit This data is encrypted under a random "hash" or ID and we are unable to associate it with a username or email account. For example we can say user 000001 visited nba.com on July 1st, 2021 @ 1:00pm. But we do not know the direct name or email associated with that user ID. This was done using an ID encryption on sign up that ensures full privacy for URL data. Cyder does not currently collect geographic, demographic or any other form of data. Cyder respects your privacy, and is focused on enabling data ownership.
What is Cyder working on next?In the near future you can expect Cyder to include additional free features such as a private search, VPN and password management. We are dedicated to protecting your privacy, and helping you benefit from the value of your data.
How does Cyder make money?Our goal is to allow users to control their data, and are thus super focused on ethical data monetization. This includes only sharing data with your permission, and only with the brands you trust (like your bank). These brands then use this data to personalize the services they offer you. Any revenue that is generated from these models are shared with you (our users) through the Cyder rewards program.
