Types of Information Collected
The following are the types of information we collect:
Information You Provide Us
Whenever you register to become a Member, RewardTV collects from you some personal information, including your name, email address, physical address, birth date, gender, zip code or other similar information. When you play a RewardTV Game anywhere on the Internet, you may be asked questions regarding your television and advertising viewing preferences, and your responses are collected by us. You must be at least 13 years of age to become a Member (see "A Special Note to Parents Concerning Privacy" below).
Site Usage Information
Depending upon how you visit RewardTV, we may automatically collect a log file which contains your IP address, browser type, domain name, click-stream data and the time of your visit. This information is used to measure and analyze RewardTV usage and performance. In addition, when you visit a third-party site with which RewardTV has a marketing relationship, we may assign a randomly generated number and store that information as a browser cookie. The random number stored contains no non-public personal information about you or your machine. We may cause our servers to query that cookie and to log the random number along with the time and along with other data supplied to us. This information is used to better understand and serve RewardTV members. Data from unregistered users is not tracked, used or published by us in any context for any purpose. Unregistered users cannot play RewardTV games. If you are a RewardTV member, data collected from your use of RewardTV and third party sites with which we have a marketing relationship may be aggregated with data from other RewardTV members and such aggregate data about our members may be published, but no such published information will contain any personally-identifiable information about you.
How Information Is Collected
We collect information from you in several different areas or ways on RewardTV, including those described below:
You can currently register at our Website, Mobile Site, and through our Facebook game application. Before using RewardTV, you will be asked to complete a registration form and provide personally identifiable information. You may also be asked to choose a user ID and password in order to take advantage of certain features RewardTV may offer, including, but not limited to, games, contests, sweepstakes, auctions and surveys.
RewardTV TV Trivia Games
When you play a RewardTV Game, you may be asked questions regarding your television and advertising viewing preferences.
Sweepstakes, Contests, Instant Win Games, and Auctions
We may operate sweepstakes, contests, instant win games, and auctions through RewardTV which may require separate registration, additional information or answers to certain questions.
Surveys or Voting Polls
We will request personally identifiable information from you via Surveys or Voting polls. Participation is always voluntary and you will have the opportunity to decide whether or not to disclose information. At times, you may have to register to vote or to take part in a survey.
We may offer free newsletters to share information with you about RewardTV. You may receive a newsletter either by registering for a particular newsletter or in conjunction with a special feature or membership for which you have registered at RewardTV. We keep a record of what emails you opt to, and opt not to, receive from RewardTV. You may opt in or out of receiving email from RewardTV at any time by signing into the Website, clicking on "My Account," clicking on "View or Edit Your Member Profile," logging into your account, and checking or unchecking the boxes listed under "Email Notification" and "Auction Notification." In some instances, you may also opt in or out of receiving email from RewardTV in the designated area of certain newsletters or emails. When you open an HTML-formatted email (a message that includes graphics) from RewardTV, we include a Web Beacon (an electronic image known as a "single-pixel GIF") that will send us a confirmation that you opened the email, if your computer supports such capabilities.
Sign Up a Friend Program
The "Sign Up a Friend" program allows you the opportunity to earn additional Points by inviting your friends to join RewardTV. The email addresses you submit to the program are sent a one-time email invitation to register at RewardTV. The email addresses are stored solely for the purpose of sending the email invitations and tracking any subsequent registrations at RewardTV so we may award you additional Points you earn as a result of these referrals. The email addresses are not disclosed to any third parties and will not be sent any other emails from RewardTV unless the email address owners opt in to receive such mailings at the time of registration. Your friends may contact us at http://www.rewardtv.com/help/services.sdo to request that we remove their information from our database.
We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of Internet or mobile transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
