Privacy

We don't ask you for personal information unless we truly need it to provide our services.

We don't share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.

We don't sell personal information. Your name and email address will never be given or sold to a 3rd party.

We don't store personal information on our servers unless it's required for the on-going operation of one of our services.

WEBSITE VISITORS

We collect non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. The purpose is to better understand how our visitors use the website.

We also collect potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users. We only disclose logged in user IP addresses under the same circumstances that we use and disclose personally-identifying information as described below.

GATHERING OF PERSONALLY-IDENTIFYING INFORMATION

We ask visitors who sign up for an account to provide a name and email address.

SITE CONTEST WIDGET ENTRANTS

When an individual enters a contest, they're able to log into the widget through their name and email address combination. This contact information is needed to give to the administrator of the contest to help them determine if you're a winner and contact you if you win.

We also give the administrator the ability to download a list of entries into a spreadsheet format, if the plan allows.

If you have reason to believe the contest administrator is using this list maliciously, please contact us immediately at info *at* sweepstank.com.

PROTECTION OF CERTAIN PERSONALLY-IDENTIFYING INFORMATION

We disclose potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of our employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it or to provide services that we need, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using this website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.

As an example, if you're having trouble with choosing a winner (whether that be user error or a bug on our end) and you file a support ticket, we may access your account to help decide how to best remedy the solution. This might include opening up your list of entries and seeing entrant information.

We will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, we disclose potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when we believe in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of our company, third parties or the public at large.

If you are a registered user and have supplied your email address, we may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what's going on with our products. We primarily use our blog, Facebook page, and Twitter account to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. We take all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
