Contest Privacy Policy
Revere America Privacy Policy (, also referred to: RA)
Your privacy on the Internet is important to us. As part of the operation of this Contest, we gather certain types of information from Entrants, users of the website and voters in the Contest, and we would like to explain the types of information we gather, what we do with it, and how to correct or change the information.  This Privacy Policy applies solely to the information we collect during this Contest and does not apply to information we collect in any other fashion.  By visiting this Contest site, you signify your agreement with the terms of this Privacy Policy.  If you do not agree with the terms, please do not enter the Contest, use this website or vote in the Contest.

Information Collected
For purposes of communication, marketing and general administration of this Contest, RA requests or may request that Entrants provide certain information, including name, address, zip code, gender, email address, phone number, contact information, proof of age, user name and password, email Authorized Account Holder information, information required by the Internal Revenue Service for Contest winners, biographical information, information provided in the essay/description, video, consents and releases, information necessary to determine eligibility, and any other information necessary for the administration of the Contest.

RA may collect information from users of the Contest website and voters in the Contest, including personal data such as name, address, zip code, email address, gender, age, demographic information, information necessary to administer the voting and judging of the Contest and your IP address; and aggregated data such as vote totals, information about traffic patterns (for example, how many users log on on a daily basis), and access times.  In addition, we may collect and use information that you provide, such as comments, video, audio and photos.

Aggregated Information
Aggregated information, such as which pages users visit, is collected through various means. One of these ways is through an IP address, a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the Web. Web servers automatically identify your computer by its IP address. When you request a page our servers log your IP address. RA does not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable, so although your session will be logged, your session will remain anonymous to us. RA collects IP addresses for the purposes of system administration only.

Use of Cookies
RA uses cookies to automate the process of logging on to certain areas of the site. The RA cookie is a small data file stored on your computer that contains a single, randomly assigned user ID number. By recognizing this ID number, we can automatically provide you with the personalized content for which you requested. Cookies can neither read any other files on your computer, nor damage your computer. Most browsers are initially set to accept cookies. If you’d prefer, you can set your browser to refuse cookies or to alert you when cookies are being sent.

Use of Information Collected
RA uses both the personal and aggregated information we collect for multiple purposes. The information is used to improve the content of the site, to customize the content and/or layout of the site for each individual user, and to solicit funds for our efforts, to provide information services and communications that may be of interest to you.  Except for Social Security numbers (part of information required by the Internal Revenue Service for Contest winners), Revere America may share your information with affiliated groups, and affiliated third parties and administrators (for example, organizations assisting us, such as database vendors, etc.).  This information is not collected for commercial marketing purposes.

We may also share your information with third parties as necessary to administer this Contest (e.g., web server hosts, marketers) but those companies and individuals may not share your information with any other third party.
We, along with our volunteers, like-minded organizations and vendors, may contact you to alert you to important activities and items needing immediate action.  If you wish to be removed from either or all of these methods of communication, please email us at [email protected].  Please allow up to ten (10) days for removal from these lists.

We may also share your information with law enforcement agencies, if legally required to do so, or if we believe in good faith that such action is necessary to conform to legal requirements or legal process, to protect the rights or property of Revere America, to prevent a crime or protect national security, or to protect the personal safety of users or the public.  For example, to determine whether there has been misuse of the web site or other systems, we may report personal information and other information shared with us to law enforcement officials.

We may also disclose and transfer such information to any entity who acquires all or a substantial portion of Revere America, whether by merger, consolidation or purchase.

Information Security
We keep your information on a secured server.  We also use other measures to enhance security, and may limit the use of the web site in response to possible signs of abuse.  Please be aware that no security measures are perfect or impenetrable.

We do not solicit personally identifying information from minors.  Visitors who are under the age of eighteen (18) should ask their parent or legal guardian for assistance when using the web site and should not submit any personally identifying information to us.

Links to Other Sites
It is important to note that RA may contain links to sites other than ours and those sites may not follow the same privacy policies as we do.  You acknowledge and agree that RA will not be responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, for any damage or loss caused or alleged to be caused by or in connection with the use or reliance on any content, advertising, products or other materials on or available from such linked sites.

Changes to the Privacy Policy
RA reserves the right to modify the web site and/or the Privacy Policy at any time in our sole discretion. Any changes in policy will be noted in a revised privacy policy statement. Visitors and users of the web site are deemed to be apprised of and bound by any such change.  Therefore, we encourage you to visit this page periodically to review our current policy.  You may direct any privacy policy questions to our email address.
