General Player Information
In general, PrizeWagon.com gathers statistics and player demographic information for aggregated use. This aggregated data helps us determine how our players use PrizeWagon.com so we can improve our site. This aggregated data also helps our sponsors to better understand our players. For example, we may report to a sponsor which ads are more effective based on player age group. The sponsor, however, will not have access to your personal information unless you have specifically given us permission to do so.
Information About You
To become a PrizeWagon.com player we will collect personal information about you in order to implement our service and target appropriate advertisements to you. This personal information ranges from basic information like email address, gender, age and zip code, to in-depth information such as physical address and your interests. We may use this information, on behalf of sponsors, to target specific advertisements to you. For example, if you are male, we probably would not target feminine product advertisements to you. This personal information is not presented to the advertiser unless you have given us specific instruction to do so.
We use cookie technology in order to improve your experience, including your request to remember your nickname and/or password when you enter the PrizeWagon.com site.
We send to your web browser many of the advertisements you see when you use our web site and game clients. However, we also allow other companies, called third-party ad servers or ad networks, to serve advertisements within our web pages and game clients. Because your web browser must request these advertising banners from the ad network web site, these companies can send their own cookies to your cookie file, just as if you had requested a web page from the site. Please note that if an advertiser asks us to show an advertisement to a certain audience (for example, men ages 18-34) or audience segment (for example, men ages 18-34 who have played a certain game) and you respond to that ad, the advertiser or ad-server may conclude that you fit the description of the audience they are trying to reach. Remember, we only authorize our third-party ad servers to employ anonymous cookies for ad delivery and anonymous targeting. Our third-party ad servers do not collect, nor do we give them access, to any personally identifying information about you.
Opting Out of Third-Party Ad Servers
If you want to prevent a third-party ad server from sending and reading cookies on your computer, currently you must visit each ad network’s web site individually and opt out (if they offer this capability).
Currently, we have relationships with the following third-party ad networks (click to visit their web site):
24/7 Real Media, Inc.
Tribal Fusion, Inc.
Link Share, Inc
Commission Junction, Inc
We do not disclose your personal information, such as your name, address, email address, telephone number, or the email address of a referred friend that you may have disclosed to us, to any outside companies without your prior consent. PrizeWagon.com may share such information in response to legal process, such as a court order or subpoena, or in special cases such as a physical threat to you or others. And, as we mentioned above, we may share with our sponsors or partners aggregated statistical information about the use of PrizeWagon.com. If you registered on the PrizeWagon network through a branded community site on the network, we do retain the right to provide all information collected including your personal information, to the company or individual who owns that branded community. We also retain the right to provide all information collected, including your personal information, to any successor company in the event of a merger, acquisition or sale of PrizeWagon.com business, or any of its related companies or businesses.
Except where prohibited, acceptance of a prize greater than $999 constitutes your consent to PrizeWagon.com and its agents, the use of your name, likeness, voice, opinions and biographical information for publicity, advertising, trade or promotional purposes.
