For EU and Swiss Individuals: Privacy Shield Notice for Personal Data Transfers to the United States
With respect to personal data received or transferred pursuant to Privacy Shield, Contest Champ is subject to the investigatory and enforcement powers of the U.S. Federal Trade Commission.
If we become subject to an FTC or court order based on non-compliance, Contest Champ shall make public any relevant Privacy Shield-related sections of any compliance or assessment report submitted to the FTC, to the extent consistent with confidentiality requirements.
In certain situations, Contest Champ may be required to disclose personal information in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including in order to meet national security or law enforcement requirements. For more information, please see How we share information.
When we receive personal information under the Privacy Shield, and then transfer it to third party services (including for the purposes described in How we share information), we are liable for any processing of personal information by such third parties that is inconsistent with the Privacy Shield Principles unless we prove that we are not responsible for the event giving rise to any alleged damage.
We will provide an individual opt-out choice, or opt-in for sensitive data, before we share your data with third parties other than our agents, or before we use it for a purpose other than which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized. For more information about the choices you have regarding the collection and use of your information, see Choices about your information. Individuals who wish to restrict the processing of their personal data should contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In compliance with the Privacy Shield Principles, Contest Champ commits to resolve complaints about your privacy and our collection or use of your personal information transferred to the United States pursuant to Privacy Shield. European Union and Swiss individuals with Privacy Shield inquiries or complaints should first contact us at email@example.com.
Contest Champ has further committed to refer unresolved privacy complaints under the Privacy Shield Principles to an independent dispute resolution mechanism, the BBB EU PRIVACY SHIELD. If you do not receive timely acknowledgment of your complaint, or if your complaint is not satisfactorily addressed, please visit www.bbb.org/EU-privacy-shield/for-eu-consumers for more information and to file a complaint. This service is provided free of charge to you.
If your Privacy Shield complaint cannot be resolved through the above channels, under certain conditions, you may invoke binding arbitration for some residual claims not resolved by other redress mechanisms. See Privacy Shield Annex 1 at https://www.privacyshield.gov/article?id=ANNEX-I-introduction.
Transfers of information not from the EEA
The laws in the United States may not be as protective of your privacy as those in your location. For example, United States law does not provide you with the right to access, modify and delete personal information in all cases.

When transferring personal information to and processing personal information in the United States we will implement appropriate safeguards and process the personal information in accordance with the terms of this Privacy Notice. By using our websites or our Services, you agree to the transfer and processing of your personal information to the United States.
Our website and Services are not intended for use by children. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 16 years. If we become aware that a child under 16 has provided us with personal information, we take steps to delete such personal information without undue delay. California users under the age of 18 may request the removal of their content or information publicly posted on the website by emailing us at the appropriate email address identified below.
