Types of Information We Collect
Personal Information: Personal information is information to specifically identify an individual, such as a customer’s name and address. Personal information also includes demographic information, such as date of birth, gender, geographic area, and preferences, when such information is linked to other personal information that identifies the individual.
How We Collect and Use Personal Information
20/20 Institute collects personal information from you at several different points, as set forth below. In general, we use personal information for the purpose for which it was collected (such as to provide service and to anticipate and resolve problems with our Website), for our own internal business operations, to respond to customer support inquiries and for other purposes as described below.
Your information might be used, together with other information you submit to us in conjunction with your use of the Website, for the following purposes: - for editorial purposes, such as when you submit a picture to us (e.g., to attribute your submitted picture to you); - to contact you for any reason regarding content you have submitted to the Website (e.g., to ask you a question about a picture you have submitted); and - to identify you by name when posting content you submit to us on the Website (e.g., when following one of our various social channels, to post your name and a profile picture on a list of ‘Winners’).
Any information that is not personally identifiable information but is publicly displayed on the Website (such as user name and photos) might appear in the results of searches conducted on Internet search engines while you are a ‘Winner’ on the Web site and potentially for some time period after the giveaway is terminated, depending upon the search engine’s indexing practices.
