Information Collection and Use

  • RARES only collects personal information when you register with RARES through our web site giveaway program. RARES may combine information about you that we have with information we obtain from business partners or other companies.
  • When you register we ask for information such as your name, email address. Once you register with RARES, you are not anonymous to us.
  • RARES automatically receives but does not record information on our server logs from your browser, including your IP address, cookie information, and the page you request.
  • Only employees of RARES member companies are eligible to furnish RARES with their e-mail address and/or other personal information for web site giveaways.
  • No children may register with RARES at any time.

However, by interacting with or viewing an ad you are consenting to the possibility that the advertiser will make the assumption that you meet the targeting criteria used to display the ad.
