Who We Are
Like most website operators, Clean Sweep may collect non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, including but not limited to the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Clean Sweep’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Clean Sweep’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Clean Sweep may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Clean Sweep may also collect potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Clean Sweep does not use IP addresses to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to cleansweepstakes.org choose to interact with Clean Sweep in ways that require us to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that we gather depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask sweepstakes participants to provide personally identifying information, location-based information, and photographic images.
In each case, Clean Sweep collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with us, and to promote Clean Sweeps to a wider audience. Clean Sweep does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities, like entering a sweepstakes.
All of the information that is collected on cleansweepstakes.org will be handled in accordance with GDPR legislation.
Voluntary Disclosure of Personally-Identifying Information
Users of certain functionality of cleansweepstakes.org, including but not limited to entering our sweepstakes, are asked to provide personally-identifying information as part of their interactions with Clean Sweep. By using this functionality, users agree that Clean Sweep may post this information on cleansweepstakes.org in order to promote our services, and that this information may, therefore, be visible to the general public. For example, we may announce sweepstakes winners or participants including the use of any user supplied images. Alternative;y, we may post images and/or text showing the location of trash pickup activities submitted by our users. Functionality requiring voluntary disclosure of personally-identifying information will be clearly disclosed on our website.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Clean Sweep discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those officers, employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations that need to know that information in order to process it on our behalf or to provide services available through cleansweepstakes.org. Some of those officers, employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using cleansweepstakes.org, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.
Clean Sweep will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than as described above, Clean Sweep discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, if you give permission to have your information shared (including voluntary disclosure of personally-identifying information), or when Clean Sweep believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Clean Sweep, third parties, or the public at large.
