Collection of Your Personal Identifiable Information (“PII”) and Other Personal Information
This Web site is intended to provide a unique and entertaining experience for users, without requiring
them to submit any more PII than is necessary to participate in particular activities which may be
offered, or to use the Site effectively. We do not require users to register or submit PII in order to visit
the Web site and most activities on the Site can be performed without supplying PII. When we ask for
PII to participate in an activity we will not require anyone to disclose more PII than we believe is
reasonably necessary to participate in the activity. At times, users may be asked to provide non-PII
such as first name, age, gender, postal code, city, and/or address of residence.
For Children Under the Age of 16
Children under the age of 16 RECEIVE SPECIAL PROTECTIONS. We will not knowingly accept
information from children under the age of 16 and if we were to run any special promotions for this
disclose at that time.
When PII and Non-PII May be Requested
Registration or input of PII may be required to participate in activities such as sweepstakes, contests,
specific promotional activities, surveys, or for e-commerce. If PII is requested for participation in an
activity, you cannot participate without disclosing the requested PII.
From time to time, we may also ask you to provide us with non-PII which does not allow us to
identify you by email address, full name or full address. We may use this information for internal
purposes, or for creating reports for ourselves and third party advertisers and partners.
Use of PII
We may use PII in sweepstakes, contests or promotional activity (i) to register you for those activities,
to verify that you comply with the published rules and to notify you if you are a winner, (ii) for
coupon, premium or prize delivery, (iii) for notification of special offers. The PII you disclose for
these and similar activities may be shared with third parties, such as those who may administer the
activity for us, and shipping companies who may deliver a prize or premium.
We may also use your PII for the following purposes: (v) to personalize and enhance our Site and
your Web site experience; (vi) to send you personalized information about our Site via email/ sms,
(vii) to send you advertising or promotional material from us, our advertisers or business partners; and
(viii) to contact you for feedback regarding us, our advertisers or business partners.
Should you respond to a particular offer from our business partners or advertisers we may also use
your PII to provide a report to our advertisers or business partners that tells them who responded to a
particular offer. Further if you accept an offer contained in, for example an email/sms, we may
provide the advertiser or business partner with the PII necessary to fulfil that offer to you.
Should your PII be requested by any of our business partners or advertisers for their direct use in
advertising or marketing (when the contact with you would come from them and not from us on their
behalf) you will, in each case, be given the opportunity to remove yourself from the list.
Your PII may also be shared with those persons or entities that administer our Web site.
Your PII will only be shared with administrators, business partners or advertisers for a particular
purpose and they will not be permitted to use it for any unauthorized purpose.
Use of Non-PII
Non-PII is data such as first name, postal code, age, gender, product and promotional preferences and
household characteristics like presence of children or income bracket. Your non-PII may be
aggregated and used for our internal purposes or may be shared with third parties for any lawful
purpose, without your permission. No third party will know who you are as a result of the use of your
At this time we do not offer goods for direct sale via our Site. However, if we were to do so in the
future, then purchases through our Site may require disclosure of your PII, your credit card
information and information about the name and address of the person receiving the purchases. The
credit card information may be subject to verification by the issuing credit card company or other
company. Sales and shipping records will also be generated and maintained. Unless you give us
permission at the time we collect such information, however, we will not use this information for any
purpose except the fulfilment and record keeping of the transaction.
At the time we gather any of your PII, we will give you the opportunity to “opt-out” of allowing us to
use your PII for other purposes, such as sending you specific future emails/sms or advertising or
sharing your PII with specific business partners or other advertisers If you opt-out of a specific use,
we will not use your PII for that purpose.
If you opt-out of the use of your PII, we may still use your PII for internal purposes, or as may be
necessary to administer the site, for example, sharing that data with those persons or entities who
administer the Web site. Your PII may further still be used to comply with applicable law, for
example but not limited, to comply with valid legal process such as a search warrant, subpoena or
court order; and to report sweepstakes and contest winnings as may be required by law. And it may be
used in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to
identify or contact you, or bring legal action against you if, for example, you may be causing injury to
of interference with our Site or company’s rights or property, or other users of the site(s), whether
your actions are intentional or unintentional.
Further, your PII may be shared with any successors and assigns we may have.
If you wish to change your decision to “opt-out” or to “opt-in” as applicable, you can email
