Privacy policy


This notice describes our privacy policy, so you will know how your information is stored and shared at Sweeptown.com.

Information Gathered.


Personal information is information about you that is personally identifiable like your name, address, email address, or phone number, and that is not otherwise publicly available. You can choose not to provide certain information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of some of our site's features and services.

In instances where we ask for your personally identifiable information and we tell you the data we are collecting on that page will be shared with third parties, and in cases where a visitor to the Sweeptown.com website opts-in to share his/her information with third parties, those disclosures and opt-ins will override anything to the contrary in this Privacy Policy.

Please remember that any information you disclose in comments or any other public areas on the website becomes public information, so it is important for you to exercise discretion and appropriate caution as to what personal information you reveal in these areas.

Sweeptown.com collects your email address for sending confirmation emails, authenticating user accounts, providing information, and other services. For sweepstake entries, we collect contact name(s), phone/fax number(s), and address for mailing prizes to winners. All sweepstake entries may be stored in our database, even after they are no longer visible on our website.

Our web logs store web log entries for each page served, including IP address, page URL, and timestamp. We receive and store any information you enter on our website or give us in any other way. Name and address information may be used by Sweeptown.com for its own marketing purposes, such as in distribution of newsletters and other information.

Sweeptown.com may also set and access Sweeptown.com cookies on your computer. Sweeptown.com may let other companies that show advertisements on some of our pages set and access their cookies on your computer. Other companies' use of their cookies is subject to their own privacy policies, not this one. Advertisers or other companies do not have access to Sweeptown.com cookies. Sweeptown.com may additionally use web beacons to access Sweeptown.com cookies. As you are no doubt aware, most browsers enable you to refuse to accept certain types of cookies, have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or disable cookies altogether, if you so choose. You are, of course, free to use the majority of our site without providing any personal information.
