Please stop doing this. The fewer information I have online the less the chance it has of getting stolen. Also its posted for all to see. This is unnecessary. All you guys need is the birth month and year.

Dude. Click your account > edit account.

You have the option to hide any and ALL information on your profile that you don't want anyone to see.

Points 2 Shop is not "doing" anything to you. You signed up to the site of your own free will and your profile is viewable to the public because you have not set it otherwise.

You can change a preference to hide your date of birth here: https://www.points2shop.com/account/edit_preferences

Unless you're talking about surveys and offers, then they require it to identify your age as they may want only a specific range of ages or to organize their results.

You don't have to worry about P2S stealing from you. And they have your birthday so you can get 365 merits on your birthday (which after you save up enough, you can use them in contests for cash)
