The personal-identifying information involved is any information that identifies, relates to, describes, or is capable of being associated with, a particular individual. This includes name, signature, social security number, physical characteristics or description, address, telephone number, passport number, driver’s license or state identification card number, insurance policy number, education, employment, employment history, bank account number, credit card number, debit card number, and any other financial information, medical information, or health insurance information. In summary, personal-identifying information is information which identifies a person who accesses our web sites, mobile apps or kiosks and may be used to contact the person. (Personal-identifying information does not include publicly available information that is lawfully made available to the general public from federal, state, or local government records or is in the public domain and comes from a source other than information supplied to our web site by the person involved.)
This policy guides how we will store and use the personal-identifying information which people provide when accessing our web sites, mobile apps or kiosks. We collect personal-identifying information from you when you register to participate in our prize promotions and contests, establish an in2win® account, win a prize due to your participation in an in2win® prize promotion, respond to a survey, purchase any product or service through use of our web sites, mobile apps or kiosks, claim a prize won by your participation on one of our prize promotions, or place content on any message boards made available on our web sites, mobile apps or kiosks.
We will use the personal-identifying information that we collect: (1) to administer the prize promotions and other advertising and promotional activities that we conduct from time to time (including prize notifications and prize deliveries), and (2) to make reports and submissions to governmental agencies and branches, as required or permitted by law, and (3) to compile market and statistical reports based on aggregated information (but the reports do not contain personal-identifying information), and (4) to allow us to better respond to the individual needs and preferences of people who access our web sites, mobile apps or kiosks, and (5) to invite you to participate in surveys, sweepstakes, contests, competitions and other promotions, and (6) for data analysis, audits, developing new products and services, identifying usage trends and determining the effectiveness of our promotional campaigns, and (7) to enable us to pay royalties to third-party content providers, and (8) to process transactions, including (not limited to) redemption of discount coupons and fulfillment of merchandise prize awards.
To safeguard the confidentiality of personal-identifying information that we collect, we implement password protection and a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal-identifying information when you enter, submit or access your personal information. We use a secure server to protect your personal-identifying information and to prevent unauthorized access and disclosure. All supplied personal-identifying information is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer technology and then encrypted into our data base only to be accessible by those who are authorized with special access rights to such systems and who are required to keep the personal-identifying information confidential.
Although we endeavor to protect your personal-identifying information and privacy, we do not promise, nor should you expect, that your personal-identifying information or private communications will always remain private. After a transaction, your private payment information may not be stored on our servers. We will retain personal-identifying information, including information from closed accounts, to comply with law, prevent fraud, collect any money owed, resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems, assist with any investigation, enforce the “official rules” of our prize promotions, prepare marketing and demographic studies and statistical reports, and to take any necessary or appropriate actions permitted by law. Please be aware that it is technologically impossible to remove from our servers, every record or information that you provide to us. The need for backup means that a copy of your personal information may exist in non-erasable form.
