Geni by Stockland | Data Sharing Agreement - Retailers

1 Background
(a) A member of the Stockland Group owns or is a co-owner of the Centres.
(b) The Retailer has physical retail operations in at least one Centre.
(c) Stockland has developed an App that will be available on certain smartphones, allowing the user to create shopping and to-do lists.  The App will then match items on those lists to special prices and offers available in the Centres (including Offers that match items on the End User’s list).  End Users will be able to create and manage multiple shopping and other to-do lists, by adding items as free form text or selecting from pre-defined categories.  A dynamic facility matches these list items with offers from stores across an End User’s nominated Centre, which the End User can browse and save to its list if desired.  When in a Centre, End Users can sort their lists via store to tick purchased items off or add more items as they shop. Lists can also be shared with other users to facilitate collaboration between families and friends.  
(d) Stockland and Retailer have agreed that the Retailer will provide the Data to Stockland and Stockland will use reasonable endeavours to provide details of relevant Offers to End Users via the App.
