Privacy Policy

We take guarding the privacy of the information that you provide very seriously! Please read this policy to understand how we will treat the personal information that you give to us. Since this policy may change over time as we modify or expand our service, we suggest that you check back from time to time in order to understand how we treat your information.

This policy will let you know:

What personally identifiable information INNOVATIVE Information Services LLC collects and how it is used.

During contest registrations, INNOVATIVE Information Services LLC collects personally identifiable information including your name, address, zip code, email address, birth date, gender and the number of people in your household. After providing INNOVATIVE Information Services LLC with this information, you are no longer anonymous. If you should choose to withhold some of your personally identifiable information you will not be eligible to participate in the INNOVATIVE Information Services LLC activities such as sweepstakes, contests and promotions; and we may not be able to provide you with some of the other services dependent upon the collection of such information.

From time to time, INNOVATIVE Information Services LLC may ask you for additional personally identifiable information. This may happen when registering with one of our Partners, entering or participating in a sweepstakes, contests and promotions sponsored by INNOVATIVE Information Services LLC and/or one of our Partners, or filling out a user survey. "Partners" refers to advertisers, manufacturers, service providers, ecommerce partners, and any companies with which INNOVATIVE Information Services LLC has a business relationship. INNOVATIVE Information Services LLC may also keep a record if you contact our customer service center. INNOVATIVE Information Services LLC may collect information at other times. Also, to participate in our tell-a-friend program, you must give us the email addresses of those persons who you think will be interested in being contacted by us. Before you give us the email address of a friend, we recommend that you ask the friend's permission. We will only use the email address to send out one email to that person, inviting them to join and it will not be sold or used for any other purposes. Whenever we ask you for personally identifiable information this Privacy Policy will be available through a link for you to review. Users and members should understand that when you are on INNOVATIVE Information Services LLC, there are links to other sites that are beyond our control. For example, if you "click" on a banner advertisement, or click to a Partner's site or make a purchase on a Partner's site, the "click" may take you off the INNOVATIVE Information Services LLC site. These other sites may independently collect data, solicit personally identifiable information, or send their own cookies (See Below). This information may or may not be shared with INNOVATIVE Information Services LLC.

How we use your personal information.

We use the personal information you supply us to enhance the INNOVATIVE Information Services LLC service and personalize your experience. In addition, we may use information concerning your contest entries in presenting you with advertising for products and services in which you have shown an interest or in which we think you may be interested. Providing information about yourself enables us to provide more offers to you, as many of our advertisers create offers especially for people with certain demographic characteristics. Answering any question with the option "Prefer not to answer" (or similar), may affect some but not all of the services offered to you. With respect to sweepstakes, contests and promotions, we need certain information to operate and administer various sweepstakes, contests and promotion programs to ensure that we comply with applicable laws and in order to notify you if you are a winner.

With the information we gather we develop summary reports (which do not contain personally identifiable information) for our advertisers and those manufacturers and service providers whose goods and services we sample or think our visitors may be interested in. We provide this information to assist our advertisers and the manufacturers and service providers in determining how to promote their products. We never tell them who it was that saw or clicked on their advertisements unless it is necessary in order to provide you with the information, sample or service you requested and when any personally identifiable information is necessary. This fact will be clearly noted to alert you and allow you to decide whether or not you wish to participate and share this data. In those rare cases, when disclosure of personally identifiable information is required for you to receive a sample, that partner will be the only one to receive that data and will be forbidden from selling or using that information for anything other than the fulfillment of that sample or service. We may also send you email communications containing information which we think you will find valuable, including information about new products and services offered by INNOVATIVE Information Services LLC or its partners. It is our policy only to send email to users who give us permission to do so and you may tell us at anytime that you no longer wish to receive such communications.

Who has access to your personally identifiable information.

The personally identifiable information that you provide will be used extensively within INNOVATIVE Information Services LLC to provide a personalized experience to you. It will also be shared with INNOVATIVE Information Services LLC's partners, but only with your permission as described in detail above under What personally identifiable information INNOVATIVE Information Services LLC collects and how it is used.

As we have already noted, other companies placing advertising on our site may collect information about you when you view or click on their advertising or content. INNOVATIVE Information Services LLC does not control this collection of information. You should contact these advertisers or content providers directly if you have any questions about their use of this information.

INNOVATIVE Information Services LLC will not disclose your personally identifiable information without your permission unless we need to do so in order to comply with applicable law, a subpoena, or other legal process or to protect the personal safety of our users or the public. INNOVATIVE Information Services LLC does not sell or share, trade personally identifiable information about its users to any third party without first receiving the user's permission. If INNOVATIVE Information Services LLC intends to share your personal information with a third party, we will notify you before doing so, and you will have the opportunity to prevent this transfer. You can elect not to use certain services or participate in certain sweepstakes, contests and promotions if you do not want your information shared with third parties.

What kinds of security procedures are in place to protect the loss, misuse or alteration of information under the company's control.

INNOVATIVE Information Services LLC operates secure data networks that are password protected and are not available to the public. INNOVATIVE Information Services LLC reviews its security policies on a regular basis, and changes are made as necessary. Only a select group of authorized individuals have access to our users information, and they are prohibited from divulging it or using it for their own benefit.
