What information do we collect? How do we use it?
We collect information from you in the following places on our Web site for several different services and site functions outlined below:
CALL FOR ENTRIES
When you submit a site(s), we need to know your name, email address, phone number, mailing address, URL, company, title, client (if applicable) and credit card information (if applicable). This allows us to process and fulfill your order and to notify you if you are honored for an award.
When you sign up for The 011, we collect only an email address to deliver the requested information.
VOTING FOR THE PEOPLE'S VOICE AWARDS
When you register to vote for The People's Voice Awards we collect a name, an email address and some additional information like age, gender, schooling, salary and industry to establish a unique identifier for each voter.
WE DO NOT USE THIS INFORMATION FOR MARKETING PURPOSES. This lets us provide maximum security against “ballot stuffing” and helps us notify voters with information pertaining to The People's Voice Awards.
We will also use your email address to send you a reminder email to participate in the Webby Awards each year.
You will also have the opportunity to opt-in to receive occasional information from our partners. If you wish to stop receiving this information, you may unsubscribe from the link at the bottom of the email from our partner, or email firstname.lastname@example.org ask to be taken off the mailing list.
TELL A FRIEND NOTIFICATIONS
When you request a notification to be sent to your friend, we ask you for your name, email address and your friend's name and email address. We do not use this information for any other purpose than to send your friend notifications about the Webby Awards.
CONTESTS AND PROMOTIONAL FEATURES
When you enter a contest or other promotional feature, we may ask for your name, address, and email address so we can administer the contest and notify winners. In some cases we offer you the opportunity to receive information about new services, special offers and other news that you might find valuable. To receive such notifications you must opt-in to the distribution list. If at any time you choose to opt-out of receiving such notifications you may do so by sending your request to: email@example.com.
