Do we disclose any information to outside parties?
We report leaderboard lists to each advertising sponsor of an AdBreak® competition. Each of our competitions are customized promotions made possible by third party sponsors. As such, they are entitled to a list of all of their players which is limited to your name and email address/phone number. The purpose of this is to deliver prizes to winners, but they may also send you offers and newsletters and it is your responsibility to then unsubscribe to them if you are not interested. If you feel that any third party sponsor is abusing their use of your information, you may report this to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Users will have to provide a valid shipping address and/or PayPal™ e-mail address when redeeming prizes in order to receive their prize, as well as submit a completed IRS Form W-9 to receive over $600 in a calendar year. This information will not be sold, traded, or otherwise transferred to any outside parties other than those parties working with us that are directly involved with delivering prizes and filing taxes. These parties will only use your information for the express purpose of delivering you the prize or filing the appropriate tax forms as required by law. We may release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others' rights, property, or safety. However, non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.
We do not own, sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties the advertising content that is displayed in the game. This content is only displayed within the ConsumerBreak advertising platform, after prior authorization from each sponsoring owner.
