Privacy Policy

Last updated on May 15, 2012

Welcome to Contestgirl. My privacy policy is very simple:

I will not sell, give away or otherwise intentionally expose any personal information you might supply when accessing this web site. This includes your email address, if you provide one. The only exclusion to this policy is if I am required to provide this information to a law enforcement agency.

If you send me a message, through the Contact Me form and include an email address, I will do my best to respond to you using the address you provide, but I will not use the address for any other purpose.

If you sign-up for my newsletter, I will use the email address you provide to send the newsletters but I will not use it for any other purpose.

If you send me a message telling me you've won something, I generally include that in the winners list on the home page. I do not give out any personal information like your email address - I will use first names or a screen name if that's what you give me. If you don't want to be included in the winners list but still want to tell me about a win, please tell me that.

If you add a comment to any of the sweepstakes, you are given the opportunity to include your name, email address or any other information about yourself. Whatever you type will be shown to anyone who reads your comment so be careful what you enter there.

I hope this is clear. I will not attempt to profit from anyone's private information. I just want to try to make this site the best contest and sweepstakes list on the web and have some fun doing it.

I should say something about the use of cookies here. The contestgirl.com website returns a cookie to your browser when you login for MyContests. A cookie is a string of characters that a website can pass to a browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox or whatever you're using to surf the net). The browser will return the cookie on each subsequent request to that website. When I log in as 'linda', for example, the Contestgirl website sends my browser a cookie, effectively saying "this person has logged in as linda". Each time I click on a link that makes a request to the Contestgirl website, my browser sends the cookie back to remind the website that I am logged in as linda. I don't know any other way to keep a user logged in. I think cookies have got a bad reputation because some websites use them to track what a user clicks and some people feel that there is a privacy issue with that. I do not use cookies to track clicks. I use them only to allow you to log into the website for MyContests should you choose to do so.

If you have any questions or concerns about my privacy policy please write to me for clarification.

Enjoy and thanks for visiting my site. I hope you win something.

Linda
