The Shopping Queen does not share your personally identifiable information with third parties without your permission. We will never sell, share or rent information we receive from other companies about you to outside parties. We may use this information ourselves, only to personalize and enhance the content of your The Shopping Queen newsletters and to specialize any promotional offers from us.

If you send a referral email, tip or special offer to a friend or family member, their information will never be sold, shared or rented.

General Demographic Information
We might share general demographic information that we collect on our users with our marketing partners in order to better serve you. For example, we may tell one of our partners that a certain number of members have expressed interest in children's clothing or that a certain number of members belong to a health club. In turn, we may offer specials and bargains on children's clothes and/or health clubs in the future.

Guidelines Regarding Children
Personal information about children is a concern for all of us. Therefore, we do not knowingly collect or maintain information at our Web site from children under age 13, and no part of our Web site is structured to attract those under 13.

Contests and Sweepstakes
We regularly operate sweepstakes, contests and giveaways. We typically ask you for your email address (to notify you if you've won, or not). We also ask for first and last names, and sometimes post office addresses in order to verify the entrant's identity. In some situations, we need additional information as part of the entry process, such as a prize selection choice. This information is shared with a third party: "

  • When you choose to receive information from a third party sweepstakes sponsor; "
  • When a sweepstakes is hosted by The Shopping Queen but administered by a sponsor, again, we will advise you of this in the sweepstakes rules

Most sweepstakes and contests will also ask you to consent to the release of information contained within the entry form for tax purposes if you become a winner. This information could include your name and your photo.

You should carefully review the rules of each sweepstakes, contest and giveaway which you enter as they may contain additional important information about The Shopping Queen or a sponsor's use of your personally identifiable information.
