Information Collection and Use
Visitors to our web sites and the Promotion web sites built on behalf of our clients have the option of giving us contact information and other personally identifiable information, such as their name, mailing address, phone number and email address. This information is used by us to enter the visitor in a Promotion, provide information, assess the needs of a business to determine suitable products, and select and contact potential winners and other site visitors via phone, fax, email and regular mail.
When we receive, collect and process consumers’ personally identifiable information on behalf of our clients when we administer their promotions, we may also require sensitive information, such as social security number or date of birth. Consumers provide this information in a variety of methods, depending on the particular promotion. We only use this personally identifiable information to operate the sweepstakes or other promotion for our client, in order to select winners, award other prizes or bonuses or for the other purposes of the promotion. We do not use the information for any other purpose. We maintain the information only for so long as necessary to verify and conduct the promotion and to provide redundancy for our clients. We do not provide this information to any entity other than our client and others involved in the operation of the promotion. Our clients’ privacy policies govern the use of these data and they remain their property. Any exceptions to these procedures will be announced in the promotion for which the change is made.
Marden-Kane also processes personally identifiable information it receives directly from its’ clients. In these cases, Marden-Kane has no direct relationship with the 3rd party individuals whose personal data it processes. An individual who seeks access, who seeks to correct, amend, delete inaccurate data or withdraw consent to further contact should direct his/her query to Marden-Kane’s client (the data controller). If the client requests Marden-Kane to remove the data, we will respond to their request within 30 days.
It is the policy of this organization to retain client data, including personal data necessary for the selection, notification and awarding of prizes in promotions and any tax forms that are legally required to be completed for awarding those prizes, for only as long as legally required or as requested by the client, whichever is longer. No personal data is collected other than that required to select, notify and award a prize winner per applicable law. All physical documents are shredded and disposed of by a secure data disposal service. All electronic data is deleted and removed from all electronic devices including backups on a monthly deletion schedule. All requests from clients for data to be retained longer than legally required or transferred to them or another vendor must be made in writing and in advance.
We also collect certain information, not personally identifiable, on our website and in connection with administration of promotions. Marden-Kane may collect information about your computer configuration such as your browser type, operating system, or ISP domain name. Marden-Kane may collect information about the site you last visited prior to the Promotion or about your activity during your visit to the Promotion site. Marden-Kane may also offer social sign-on services that allow you to register for a promotion using a third-party social networking site such as Facebook, YouTube, Google or Twitter. By using these services you allow Marden-Kane to access the available information from your third-party social network profile such as your name, age, gender, location, email address and list of friends. This information may be used by Marden-Kane to administer the technical and operational aspects of the site, and may include using your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server. Your IP address may also be used to gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. This enables us to safeguard the promotion and diagnose problems in the operation of a promotion.
We will only transfer your personal information to third parties as set forth herein. We shall ensure that any third party for which Personal Information may be disclosed subscribes to the Privacy Shield Principles or are subject to law providing the same level of privacy protection as is required by the Privacy Shield Principles and agree in writing to provide an adequate level of privacy protection.
We do not sell your personal information to third parties.
Please note that Marden-Kane is obliged to disclose personal information in response to lawful requests by public authorities.
If Marden-Kane is involved in a merger, acquisition, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, you will be notified via email and/or a prominent notice on our Web site of any change in ownership or uses of your personal information, as well as any choices you may have regarding your personal information.
In cases of onward transfers of Privacy Shield data to third parties, Marden-Kane is potentially liable.

We follow generally accepted standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
