The majority of the features on our websites are offered without collecting any personally identifiable information from you. You can surf our websites and view our content anonymously.
PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION
We use this information to notify contest winners and award prizes, to monitor site traffic or personalize the site (in the case of anonymous information collected in surveys), and to send participants an email newsletter.
We work with MailChimp as a third party service provider to conduct these surveys or contests. MailChimp is prohibited from using our users’ personally identifiable information for any other purpose. We will not share the personally identifiable information you provide through a contest or survey with other third parties.
SURVEYS OR CONTESTS
From time to time we may provide you the opportunity to participate in contests or surveys on our websites. If you participate, we will request certain personally identifiable information from you. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and you therefore have a choice whether or not to disclose this information. The requested information typically includes contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as your postal code).
HOW INFORMATION IS SHARED
We share Personally Identifiable Information with third parties only for our internal business purposes. We do not give, sell, or lend personally identifiable information regarding visitors to our websites to third parties for any other reason. We require any third parties with whom we share personally identifiable information to protect this information using the same degree of care that we do. We occasionally send emails announcing special offers or services on behalf of our business partners to users who have given us personally identifiable information, but the participating business partner has no direct access to the personally identifiable user information contained in our databases.
We reserve the right to disclose your personally identifiable information when we believe that disclosure is necessary to enforce or apply our Terms & Conditions of Use, protect our rights and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on our websites and as required by law.
CHOICE / OPT-IN / OPT-OUT
We make every attempt to allow you to “opt-in” for communications and promotions when possible. We provide you the opportunity to ‘opt-out’ of having your personally identifiable information used for certain purposes when we ask for this information.
If you no longer wish to receive our newsletter and promotional communications, you may opt-out of receiving them by following the instructions included in each newsletter or communication.
