1. Why does strikitriches.com collect personal information?
We need to collect certain personal information from our visitors primarily to process and fulfill online sweepstakes entries and online orders for the products and services we offer. For example, we need your full name, full address, e-mail address, telephone number and date of birth to verify eligibility and enter you in the sweepstakes, notify you if you've won a prize and to send you any products and/or services you may purchase. We may also use the personal data we collect for systems administration and troubleshooting purposes, and to report aggregate information to our marketing partners and others. 

To provide our users with a more personalized and relevant web service, we also collect and use personal data to identify users' specific interests and needs. If given permission, we may notify our users of offers and information we feel may be of interest to them available from strikeitriches.com and our marketing partners. If given permission, we may also share information with select marketing partners who may directly contact our users regarding their own offers of interest. If you do not want to receive such offers you may follow the simple unsubscribe procedure located at the permission notice box appearing on the strikeitriches.com registration and entry page. Our online registration and entry page contains a clearly identified checked box indicating that by submitting the form you wish to receive offers from strikeitriches.com and our marketing partners. Users may unsubscribe from such offers by clicking to remove the check in the permission notice box before submitting the registration and entry form. We may share our unsubscribe list with select marketing partners for the sole purpose of insuring that individuals on this list do not receive electronic commercial mail messages containing ThinkDirect Marketing Group advertisements that may be sent by such partners. 

We send entrants a confirmation e-mail when they register for our sweepstakes. These confirmation e-mails are not promotional in nature and the user may not opt-out of receiving these transactional e-mails. If you are currently receiving commercial e-mail messages from TDMG messages after previously providing permission and no longer wish to receive such offers you may always follow the unsubscribe procedures which will be found within the commercial e-mails received from strikeitriches.com, our affiliates and marketing partners. 

From time to time, we post customer testimonials on our web site which may contain personally identifiable information such as the customer's name. We do obtain the customer's consent prior to posting these testimonials. 


2. How and what information does strikeitriches.com gather or track? 
We collect personal data from our users mainly during the initial registration process for sweepstakes entry and order processing. 

Through the use of "cookies" (described below) and online survey and registration forms, we may collect personal data on, among other things, the following information: 

Demographic Technical Reference

age
gender

IP address
domain name
e-mail address
site traffic

name

3. What are Cookies?
"Cookies" are small pieces of information that are stored by your web browser software on your computer's hard drive or temporarily in your computer's memory. The use of cookies is now an industry standard, and users will find them on most major web sites, strikeitriches.com may place and store Internet cookies on a user's hard drive. Cookies can save any of the types of information noted above. Cookies enable us to recognize you and personalize your viewing experience on the strikeitriches.com site. For example, we use cookies to recognize user access privileges to strikeitriches.com, track site usage and traffic patterns, add advertisements for goods or services that we think may interest you, and estimate our audience size. We also use cookies to store user names and information that are supplied at registration. Although most web browsers are initially set up to accept cookies, if you prefer, you can decline the placement of a cookie on your hard drive by using the appropriate feature(s) of your web browser software (if available) to delete the cookie. Please note, however, that certain areas on the site will not function properly if your web browser does not accept cookies.

As is true of most web sites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files.  This information includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data.  

We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track users' movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole.  We do not link this automatically-collected data to personally identifiable information.



4. Does strikeitriches.com disclose user information to third parties? 
Except as otherwise noted in this policy, strikeitriches.com only discloses user information in aggregate form to marketing partners. For example, we might tell a marketing partner how many users visited strikeitriches.com over a period of time, but we will never tell them who it was that saw or clicked on their offer, unless that user has given us permission to do so. 

Strikeitriches.com believes that consumers should be able to control the use of their data. We will not share personally identifiable information with marketing partners if you follow the simple unsubscribe procedure of removing the check mark located at the permission notice box appearing on the strikeitriches.com registration and entry page. If an opt-out is not submitted, we will notify users of exciting offers of interest from strikeitriches.com and our marketing partners. We may also share your name, land address, e-mail address and telephone number with marketing partners so that they can send you offers directly for products and services that may be of interest to you. The personal information our users provide to us may be combined with other personally identifiable information (such as demographic information and past purchase information) available from our records and other sources.  We use a third party to verify your address, in order to process your order prior to shipping. This allows us and our marketing partners, with permission, to present our users with offers and information geared towards their interests. We require each permission based e-mail our partners send to include a description of a simple opt-out process that will enable you to stop receiving promotional e-mail from them in the future. We will only deal with marketing partners who offer products or services that we believe may be of interest to our users. Nevertheless, strikeitriches.com is not and cannot be responsible for the activities or privacy policies of these third parties. We may share our unsubscribe list with select marketing partners for the sole purpose of insuring that individuals on this list do not receive electronic commercial mail messages containing TDMG advertisements that may be sent by such partners.

We do not rent, license, or sell personal data to third parties unless permission is granted through user submission of the checked permission notice box appearing at the registration and entry page of strikeitriches.com. In the event of a merger, acquisition, or change of control of strikeitriches.com, customer data would be considered a business asset and would be transferred. We will disclose information we maintain when required to do so by law, for example, in response to a court order or a subpoena. We may also disclose personal information as required by law or to protect the safety and security of our users. 

We use other third parties such as credit card processors and e-mail service providers to provide order fulfillment and e-mail delivery services on our site.  When you register on our site, we will share your personally identifiable information as necessary for these third parties to provide these services.  

These third parties are prohibited from using your personally identifiable information for any other purpose including their own marketing purposes. 


5. Can I opt-out of strikeitriches.com's data collection and/or distribution? 
Receiving email messages from strikeitriches.com, our affiliates and partners is optional. As noted earlier, the collection, use, and distribution of personal data helps us create a more personalized, relevant, and intelligent web service for our users. While some basic data is necessary to provide certain services, such as entry into the sweepstakes and fulfillment of products and services ordered through strikeitriches.com, there are some cases where the submission of information is optional. 

We will not contact you with e-mail offers or share personally identifiable information with marketing partners if you follow the simple opt-out procedure of removing the check mark located at the permission notice box appearing on the strikeitriches.com registration and entry page. If you are already receiving strikeitriches.com emails and no longer wish to receive such communications, simply follow the "unsubscribe" instructions that appear in every strikeitriches.com e-mail.

If you have provided personal information directly to our third party marketing partners and are receiving email communications directly from these third parties strikeitriches.com cannot, in most instances, unsubscribe users from these third parties. If you wish to unsubscribe from one of our marketing partner's e-mail programs, please follow their unsubscribe procedures which will be found within their e-mails or in their privacy policy. 


6. What about external web sites? 
To the extent hyperlinks or banner advertisements incorporating hyperlinks are utilized on this Site to access third party sites, users should be aware that these third party web sites are not controlled by strikeitriches.com and, therefore, are not subject to this privacy policy. We recommend that users check the privacy policies of these individual sites to see how their personal information will be utilized. 

Please note that our Web sites utilize framing techniques to make it appear that the user is still on the site when the user is actually on a third party Web site.  For example, if you are on a page that has the look and feel of www.strikeitriches.com, but the url listed in your browser is a different url than www.strikeitriches.com, then know that the information is being collected by this third party and their privacy policy governs the collection and use of this information.  


7. What does strikeitriches.com do to keep their site secure? 
We have implemented a number of security features throughout the strikeitriches.com site that are intended to prevent the unauthorized release of or access to the user information we collect online. For example, database information is firewall protected. Also, only authorized TDMG personnel have access to any stored personal information we collect from our users. Moreover, password and credit card information you submit to strikeitriches.com is always encrypted during transmission. Users should be aware that e-mail is not encrypted and is not considered a secure means of transmitting credit card numbers.

While we strive to create a secure and reliable site for our users, the confidentiality of any communication or material transmitted over the Internet cannot be 100% guaranteed. Users should keep in mind that any information submitted through an Internet transaction is potentially accessible to the public, and consequently, can be collected and used by others without their consent. Strikeitriches.com is not responsible or liable for illegal interception of personal data via any Internet transaction. When we collect and transmit sensitive data such as your credit card number, we encrypt it using secure socket layer technology (SSL). 



8. Does strikeitriches.com collect information from users outside of the United States?
The strikeitriches.com site is not directed to visitors residing outside of the United States. However, as indicated in the Official Rules on the site, some sweepstakes promoted on the strikeitriches.com site are open to residents of Puerto Rico and Canada. Residents from these countries can participate in these sweepstakes by registering online. We regret that as a result of system limitations at this time non-U.S. residents may not order products through strikeitriches.com. 



9. Does strikeitriches.com collect personal information from children? 
The strikeitriches.com site is not targeted nor directed to children under the age of eighteen. Strikeitriches.com does not intend to collect personally identifiable information from individuals in this age group. If strikeitriches.com receives actual notice that a child under the age of eighteen has provided personal information to strikeitriches.com, strikeitriches.com will use reasonable efforts to remove such information from its files.


10. What about TDMG's offline information and privacy practices?
ThinkDirect Marketing Group collects certain personal information from our direct mail customers and entrants primarily to process sweepstakes entries and fulfill orders for the products and services we offer. For example, we need your full name, full address and telephone number to enter you in the sweepstakes, notify you if you've won a prize or to send you any magazine subscription or product you may purchase. We may also use the personal data we collect for systems administration and troubleshooting purposes, and to report aggregate information to our marketing partners and other third parties. From time to time we may share or exchange marketing information about the consumers who respond to our offers with other companies so they may contact you about products and services that may interest you. 

If you do not want your name passed on to other companies for the purpose of receiving marketing offers, just tell us by contacting us at 1-800-690-3623 and we will be pleased to respect your wishes. Please make sure to provide your full name, address, city, state and zip code information.
