Our subscription charges are billed according to the schedule you signed up for (i.e. monthly, quarterly, semi-annually, or annually) and are not refundable once they have been charged. We do not issue pro-rated refunds on any unused portion of your subscription.

If you do not cancel any Premium Services prior to the end of the Premium Services term, the Premium Services will automatically renew at the current Contest Champ rate, and automatically billed and charged to you using the payment method originally used to purchase the Premium Services.

HOW WE SHARE INFORMATION

We share your information with our service providers, among our entities, in connection with a corporate restructuring, to prevent harm, to comply with the law, for marketing and advertising purposes, and to protect our legal rights. The legal basis for this is our legitimate interest in providing our Services, complying with the law, and protecting our rights and those of others. We apply appropriate safeguards for this sharing of your information including as described below and in Security, Choices about your information, and Rights of residents of the European Union (EU).

  • Service Providers: We share information with service providers that help us perform website functions and process your transactions.
  • Corporate Structure: We would share information if we are involved or intend to be involved in a merger, acquisition, consolidation, change of control, or sale of all or a portion of our assets or in connection with bankruptcy or liquidation proceedings. 
  • To Prevent Harm: We may share information if we believe it is necessary in order to detect, investigate, prevent, or take action against illegal activities, fraud, or situations involving potential threats to the rights, property, or personal safety of any person.

There, it is matched against Facebook’s existing list of Facebook’s users’ hashed IDs and the matches are added to Contest Champ’ Custom Audience. Hashing turns the data in Contest Champ’ customer list into short fingerprints that can’t be reversed. It happens before the data is sent to Facebook. After the Custom Audience is created by Facebook, the matched and unmatched hashes are deleted.

We have certified to the Department of Commerce that we adhere to the Privacy Shield Principles with respect to such data.
