Our Commitment to Privacy
Your privacy is very important to us. In short, any information that you submit to us will remain absolutely private. We have made it our policy to provide online content that requires minimal information will be collected. We provide this notice explaining our information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used.
How We Collect Information
Below are some of the ways in which you may provide information to us and how we may use that information.
Domain Name Recognition
Our web servers automatically recognize your domain name; however, they do not recognize your e-mail.
Information Actively Provided by Our Visitors
We do not require you to register or provide any information before entering our website. However, there are several places where you may choose to provide personally identifiable information. Unless otherwise stated, we will use the information only for the purpose it was provided.
- Sweepstakes: We may offer sweepstakes on our website. We collect only the information necessary for prize fulfillment from those who win. If a prize is valued at over $600, a social security number may be requested. The first initial, last name, city and state of all winners will be included on a Winners List. The Winners List will be provided upon request and as required by law. Information required for tax purposes, the Winner’s List or other information required by law is kept as required by law.
- E-mail Newsletters: Some of our pages permit visitors to register to receive e-mail newsletters or updates in the future by providing your e-mail address. Any e-mail you receive from us will allow you to change your preference or "unsubscribe" from this informational service at any time.
- Job Applications: We will use the information submitted in online job applications for the sole purpose of filling the specific position applied for by the applicant. After this position is filled, we will retain the information submitted for the period of time required by applicable law. During this retention period, the application will be considered inactive, and the applicant will be considered for other positions only if he/she submits an additional application for those specific positions. We will not release information submitted in on-line job applications to third parties except to appropriate governmental authorities as required by law.
- Other Features: There may be other features available on our website which may require some personally identifiable information to use the feature. We only use the personally identifiable information to provide the feature and delete it within a reasonable period of time after the information is no longer necessary.
We have some business partners with whom we may operate some of our pages and share information. For example, on occasion we may offer a sweepstakes jointly with another company. In such instances, information may be shared with the co-sponsor so that the sweepstakes may be conducted.
Aggregate information about which pages visitors access or visit (for example, to enter a visitor in a sweepstakes or to send the visitor information) is only used for internal review as we work to improve our website. This information is not sold to or shared with other organizations for commercial purposes. We do not rent, sell, or share e-mail addresses with any other company or organization.
Finally, we never use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated to the ones described above without also providing you an opportunity to opt out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.
Our Commitment to Data Security
To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place and will continue to improve appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.
How to Access or Correct Information
You may review your personally identifiable information, have it deleted or withdraw permission for its continued use by us for our e-mail newsletters by signing in and editing your preferences.
Our policy is to link only to other sites which are appropriate for visitors to our website. However, because content on websites can change quickly, we cannot always guarantee the appropriateness of the content of the websites we link to.
