Privacy Policy

Wild Selections, (“Wild Selections”) recognizes that many adults and children who visit our web site are

concerned about how personal information they provide on-line is maintained and used by Wild Selections. To

address these concerns and to demonstrate our firm commitment to privacy, especially for children who visit our

sites, we have developed and implemented this privacy policy so you will know how Wild Selections gathers, and

provides, information. Please review our privacy policy from time to time as we may update or change it

periodically.

 

Gathering and Use of Information

Wild Selections collects personally identifiable information from visitors to our sites solely on a voluntary basis.

Such personally identifiable information may include your name, postal address, e-mail address, company name

and/or telephone numbers, etc. (collectively referred to herein as "Personal Information").

We will never sell, transfer, or disclose any Personal Information we gather at our web sites to any third parties without

your prior consent, except in cases when we believe in good faith that we have a legal obligation to disclose such

Personal Information. We never require that this Personal Information be provided in order to gain access to our sites.

We collect Personal Information primarily for the following reasons:

 

1) to e-mail consumers with updates and news,

2) to notify winners of contests, games and sweepstakes, and to distribute prizes, 3) to send out brochures, etc.,

via regular mail to subscribers,

4) to distribute items that are part of "giveaways" that you have registered for, and

5) for use in our on-line and off-line marketing and advertising campaigns. There may be times when we share

aggregate information about our users (for example, the percentage of male and female visitors to our sites) with

advertisers, business partners, sponsors, and other third parties in an effort to customize or enhance the content

and advertising on our sites for our users.We recognize there are unique issues raised about the protection of our

children’s privacy over the Internet. All children-directed Wild Selections web sites are designed to comply

with the requirements of the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) and Children’s Advertising Review Unit

(CARU) guidelines for web sites gathering identifiable information from children (under age 13). Consistent with these

requirements and guidelines, and provided that we have been given accurate information by the child when asked,

we do NOT:

 

• collect personally identifiable off-line contact information without prior parental consent;

• distribute to third parties any personally identifiable information without prior parental consent;

• entice children by the prospect of a special game, prize or other activity, to divulge more information

than is  needed to participate in the activity;

• use or disclose on-line contact information without prior parental consent or parental notification, which will

include an opportunity for the parent to prevent use of the information and participation in the activity.

Without prior parental consent, on-line information will only be used to respond directly to the child’s request

and will not be used for other purposes without prior parental consent. We collect on-line contact

information from children only in connection with on-line contests and sweepstakes; our policy with

respect to using this information is provided below in the “Contests/Sweepstakes” section; or

enable children to publicly post or otherwise distribute personally identifiable contact information without

prior parental consent.

• Parents can always ask to review any Personal Information about their child that may have been collected at one

of our sites, have us delete any such Personal Information, and/or instruct us not to collect or use such Personal

Information about their child in the future. To do so, simply contact us following the procedure outlined below in

the “How To Contact Us”; section.

 

As the new technology of the Internet evolves, and the COPPA requirements and CARU guidelines evolve as

well, Wild Selections intends to comply with these requirements and guidelines in a manner and in as timely a

fashion as is technologically feasible in order to protect our children and their privacy.

 

Contests/Sweepstakes

We periodically run contests and sweepstakes on our sites for which we ask users/participants to provide contact

information (like their e-mail address). This information is used to contact the participant only when necessary in

accordance with the rules of the contest or sweepstakes.

 

If a participant has indicated upon entering a contest or sweepstakes that he/she is under 13 years of age, the

participant is instructed to enter the e-mail address of his/her parent or guardian. Further, for any game or contest

where the screen names of the high scorers are posted, a user under 13 can only select a generic screen name

from a list that has been developed in advance. This prevents the disclosure of any personally identifiable

information.

 

When a participant under the age of 18 is selected as a prize-winner in a contest or sweepstakes, an e-mail is

sent to the parent or guardian. This e-mail contains a form that requests the participant’s real name and address

and a parental permission form. For the participant to receive the prize, the parent or guardian must fill out and

sign the form and then mail or fax it to the address or number indicated on the form.

 

Cookies/IP Addresses

Like many companies, Wild Selections may use “cookie” technology to track customer visits through our sites.

Cookies are pieces of information that a web site transfers to an individual’s hard drive for record-keeping

purposes. They enhance the on-line experience by saving your preferences while you are visiting a particular site.

The cookies Wild Selections uses do not contain any personally identifying information and cannot profile your

system or collect information from your hard drive. And although you may receive cookies from many different

sites, each cookie can only be read by the Web server that originally issued it. You are not even identified by

name or e-mail address, just by a unique string of numbers that we assign the first time you come to our site.

We use your IP address in two ways: to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our web sites,

and also to gather broad demographic information.

 

Polls & Surveys

Information gathered from polls and surveys are only for internal use of Wild Selections. If sample answers to

polls or surveys are posted on the web site, then no identifiable Personal Information is ever included.

 

Choice/Opt-Out

Our sites will provide users the opportunity to opt out of receiving communications from us at the point where we

request information about the visitor. Simply follow the procedure outlined at each site. Likewise, we will provide

users with the opportunity to change any personal information previously provided, or to opt out of receiving future

email communications from us.

 

How To Contact Us

If you have any questions about this Privacy Policy, the Legal Policy, the practices of this site, your dealings with

this web site, or your Personal Information, please use our contact us form.

 

Final Note

Our goal at Wild Selections is to provide a safe Internet environment for you and your children. While children and

young adults are encouraged to play our games and explore the web sites, we remind them often that their

parents will be notified if they give us their e-mail address and their parent’s written permission is required for

them to be eligible to win prizes. We urge parents to spend time with their children on our web sites. Sit with them

and share the experience. While Wild Selections does everything we can to ensure your child’s privacy and

safety, informed parents are the best protectors of their children.
