ePrize, Inc. is a company that helps other businesses operate sweepstakes, contests, promotions, and loyalty programs ("Promotions"). In addition, ePrize occasionally runs its own Promotions. Such Promotions gather personally identifiable information from individuals who choose to enter a particular Promotion and anonymous data regarding the Promotion itself. ePrize takes its privacy obligations, both to its clients and to people who enter its Promotions, very seriously. ePrize complies with the U.S.-EU Safe Harbor Framework and the U.S.-Swiss Safe Harbor Framework as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of personal information from European Union member countries and Switzerland. ePrize has certified that it adheres to the Safe Harbor Privacy Principles of notice, choice, onward transfer, security, data integrity, access, and enforcement. To learn more about the Safe Harbor program and to view ePrize’s certification, please visit http://www.export.gov/safeharbor/.
This policy outlines our treatment of personally identifiable information we collect on behalf of our clients and for our own use. There are three types of Promotions in which ePrize is involved and may collect such information: 1) client Promotions; 2) ePrize "opt-in" to client Promotions; and 3) ePrize Promotions.
ePrize “Opt-in” to Client Promotions
From time to time, ePrize and a client will agree to allow ePrize to offer Promotion entrants an opportunity to "opt-in" to receiving marketing information from ePrize and its partners. In such cases, an ePrize "opt-in" question will appear on the Promotion registration page clearly explaining to potential entrants that by checking the box they will be agreeing to share their personally identifiable information with ePrize. When individuals "opt-in" to receive information from ePrize, they are agreeing to receive email and other notices from ePrize, including marketing messages, surveys, special offers and notices about other Promotions. Such notices may come from ePrize itself, companies with whom ePrize has a business relationship, and/or ePrize clients. If you want to "opt-out" of receiving such notices from ePrize after you have "opted-in", or you wish to correct the information you have provided to ePrize, you may do so in one of two ways:
- Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please make sure to include the name of the Promotion in the subject line and in the body of the email from which you wish to opt-out. Failure to provide this information may delay the processing of your request.
- Mail the details of your request to:
One ePrize Drive
Pleasant Ridge, MI 48069
ePrize also runs Promotions on its own behalf. Such Promotions are to generate interest from other businesses in ePrize's products and services. ePrize uses the personally identifiable information collected in such Promotions as sales leads and may contact the individual registrants by email, mail or phone. ePrize will never sell such information or share it with another business. When individuals "opt-in" to receive information from ePrize, they are agreeing to receive email and other notices from ePrize, including marketing messages, surveys, special offers and notices about other Promotions. Such notices may come from ePrize itself or from ePrize on behalf of companies with whom ePrize has a business relationship. If you want to "opt-out" of being contacted by ePrize after you have participated in one of its Promotions, or you wish to correct the information you have provided to ePrize, you may do so in one of two ways:
- Please send an email to email@example.com. Please make sure to include the name of the promotion in the subject line and in the body of the email from which you wish to opt-out. Failure to provide this information may delay the processing of your request.

ePrize’s Online Promotion Technology
ePrize's proprietary Promotion technology has the ability to collect data other than personally identifiable information for any of the Promotions it operates. ePrize may collect information about your computer or device configuration such as your browser type, operating system, or ISP domain name. ePrize may collect information about the site you last visited prior to the Promotion or about your activity during your visit to the Promotion site. ePrize may also offer social sign-on services that allow you to register for a promotion using a third-party social networking site such as Facebook, Google, or Twitter. By using these services you allow ePrize to access the available information from your third-party social network profile such as your name, age, gender, location, email address, and list of friends. This information may be used by ePrize to administer the technical and operational aspects of the site, and may include using your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server. Your IP address may also be used to gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.
As a full service promotions and sweepstakes agency, ePrize also operates mobile programs on behalf of its clients and itself. As part of those mobile services, ePrize collects personally identifiable information by use of ePrize's proprietary mobile technology. ePrize will not collect personally identifiable information from you without your permission. We treat any information you send to us as non-confidential and non-proprietary and we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any data you submit to us, though we will use reasonable efforts to protect against unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of data under our control, including physical, electronic and procedural safeguards. ePrize respects your privacy. We will only use the information you provide, including your mobile number, to send you content pursuant to the program in which you have requested to participate, though we will share the information we collected from you with the client on whose behalf we collected it. We will not use your information for any other purpose. ePrize is not responsible for information collected on behalf of its clients when such information is in its client's possession. However, we reserve the right at all times to disclose any information as necessary to satisfy any law, regulation, or governmental request; to avoid liability; or to protect our rights or property. When you provide us information in connection with a mobile program, you agree to provide accurate, complete and true information. You agree not to use a false or misleading name or a name that you are not authorized to use. If we, in our sole discretion, believe that any such information is untrue, inaccurate or incomplete, we may prohibit you from further participation in the applicable program and pursue any appropriate legal remedies.
