This statement discloses the privacy policies of Grand Awards and how it treats the information that Grand Awards collects and receives, including information related to your past use of Grand Awards products and services. This policy does not apply to the practices of companies that Grand Awards does not own or control, or to people that Grand Awards does not employ or manage.
Grand Awards will not knowingly sell, share, or rent the information collected on this site to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement. Grand Awards collects information from our users at several different points on our website.
We use IP addresses, with the help of a business partner, to analyze trends, administer the site, track user's movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to Personally Identifiable Information ("PII"). Personally Identifiable Information refers to information such as an individual's name, mailing address, phone number or email address.
A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's hard drive containing information about the user. Usage of a cookie is not directly linked to any personally identifiable information while on our site. By setting a cookie on our site, the user would not have to log in a password more than once, thereby saving time while on our site. If a user rejects the cookie, they may still use our site. The only drawback to this is that the user will be limited in some areas of our site. For example, the user will not be able to participate in monthly Drawings that may take place. Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our site.
We request information from the user on our order form. Here, a user must provide contact information (like name and shipping address) and financial information (like credit card number, expiration date). This information is used for billing purposes, with the help of our business partner, and to fill customer's orders. If we have trouble processing an order, this contact information is used to get in touch with the user.
If a user wishes to subscribe to our newsletter, we ask for contact information such as his or her name and email address.
We use a credit card processing company to bill users for goods and services. These companies do not use personally identifiable information for any use other than credit card processing; however, we will not be responsible or liable for use of the information required by credit card companies in contravention of their policies, contractual obligations or general good business procedures.
In certain circumstances, we partner with third parties to provide specific services. When the user signs up for a specific service provided by the third party, we will share names, and other information that is needed for the third party to provide the selected services. We cannot control the use of PII by third parties, but do make reasonable attempts to limit their use of the information to providing a user with the services requested.
The Grand Awards site is not intended for use by anyone under the age of thirteen (13), and any individual under such age should not provide Grand Awards with personally identifiable information. Grand Awards does not knowingly contact, market to, or solicit, collect or use personally identifiable information from or about any individual under the age of thirteen (13). It is possible that by fraud or deception we may receive information pertaining to children under thirteen (13). If we are notified of that Grand Awards has personal information regarding a person under the age of thirteen (13), as soon as we reasonably verify the information, we will either obtain parental consent or otherwise delete the information from our servers. If you want to notify Grand Awards of our receipt of information by children under 18, please do so by emailing us at: email@example.com.
This web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this Web site.
When users submit sensitive information via the website, the information is protected both online and off-line.
When our registration/order form asks users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number), that information is encrypted and is protected with encryption software.
While we use encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also take efforts to protect user-information off-line. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, our billing clerk or a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information.
It is your responsibility to ensure the security of your Grand Awards account password and not to share this information during chats, in postings in newsgroups, or in other public forums. If you choose to reveal or share your password and Grand Awards account name, Grand Awards is unable to guarantee the security of your Grand Awards account.
If you have any questions about the security at our website, you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
