TYPES OF INFORMATION THAT MAY BE COLLECTED
We collect aggregate information site-wide, including anonymous site statistics (e.g.: The number of page views or visits a certain section of our web site will receive). This information is used to improve the user experience and analyze the effectiveness of our advertising. This information is not stored in any way that would identify the actions or personal information of a specific user.
During optional registration, we may ask you to provide us with different types of information: (1) personal information, which is information that could reasonably be used to identify you personally, such as your name, e-mail address, and physical address; and (2) demographic information, such as gender, zip code, or similar information. We may collect this information at various places and forms on BetPolls, including registration forms for newsletters and other e-mail communications, when you communicate or otherwise interact with us, contests or sweepstakes or surveys. You may also be asked to choose a user name and password in order to identify yourself during future visits to BetPolls. Do not use your real name or the name of any other actual person as your user name. Providing us with information about yourself is your choice, and you can always choose not to provide certain information, but then you may not be able to take advantage of some of BetPolls’ features or future contests. User information is not sold or shared with any other entities.
