More Information Regarding Certain Activities

Online Contests and Sweepstakes iwubbzy.com may offer opportunities to enter contests and sweepstakes from time to time. In some instances, these contests and sweepstakes will be open to all registered users, and no additional personal information will be collected. In other instances, we may ask for information such as your full name, e-mail address, birth date, and in some instances, telephone numbers for certain types of contests and sweepstakes. We use this information for the purpose of conducting the contests and sweepstakes and do not (except as set forth herein) disclose such information to third parties, except with a fulfillment house which we use to help select winners and fulfill prizes and, in some cases, with third-party sponsors. From time to time, we may offer contests and sweepstakes sponsored by third party businesses and may share entrant information with such third party businesses. In these types of contests and sweepstakes, we will disclose to potential entrants that such information will be so supplied and the identity of the third party to whom such information will be supplied at the time entrant information is collected, and will provide potential entrants with the opportunity to opt out of such third party sponsored contests and sweepstakes. However, any information supplied to a third party may be retained by such third party and will be out of our control. We may maintain personal information collected online from contests and sweepstakes winners and may share that information with third parties for fulfillment purposes, as described above, as well as internally.

In certain circumstances, entrants of contests and sweepstakes on the iwubbzy.com may have the opportunity to opt-in (by indicating so on the entry form) to become subscribers of newsletters and to receive other e-mail special announcements and promotions.  The personal information collected from those entrants who have chosen to opt-in to any newsletter or other subscription shall be maintained by the Network and may be shared with third parties for fulfillment purposes, as described above, as well as internally. Entrant’s decision not to opt-in to any subscription offers will not affect eligibility for contests and sweepstakes and will not impact chances of winning.

In certain circumstances and where applicable entrants of a contest of sweepstakes may receive additional entries into the Sweepstakes by using the Tell-A-Friend page or feature.  In such instances please refer to the applicable contest or sweepstakes rules for how to receive additional entries.  In all instances and for the purposes of clarity we have established the following criteria for defining a “friend” for the purposes of Sweepstakes and Contests. A friend must be a personal contact who is over the age of 18, someone who the entrant knows or regularly corresponds with in a friendly business or personal context. Entrant must not refer: (1) a non-existent person or entrant’s self; (2) any person that entrant may have reason to believe may be offended or annoyed by being asked to participate in the Sweepstakes or Contest; (3) any person who has explicitly informed entrant they do not wish to participate in the Sweepstakes, Contest or Tell-a-Friend program; or (4) any person whom the entrant knows or believes is under the age of 18.  Entrants may not “spam” people via email. Spam is defined as unsolicited (unwanted, unrequested) email. If you’d like to refer someone, but are unsure if it would be appropriate, please contact them first to find out.
