When signing up with ScRRRatch.com, you are entrusting us to look after the data you provide to us via registration. This is a responsibility we do not take lightly and our primary goal is to ensure the safe keeping of your data.
We are an interactive advertising portal using free games as a means to connect advertisers with consumers.
In order to use our service, you are required to provide over 20 data points which we use as a means to provide statistical information and demographics to advertisers whose games you play.
For example, when you play a game, we increment each data point category in a statistical table relating to the game. Once a game term has completed, our advertisers are provided with demographics relating to the audience that has engaged with the game. The idea is to help them to better understand the audience their products attract.
In addition to this, we use data points as a means to target competitions to a given audience. For example, if an advertiser had a product that was mostly relevant to over 50 year olds, the games can be modified to show to that target audience.
So what information do we collect?
When signing up, we collect your name, id/passport/drivers/etc, email address, telephone numbers, address, country, region and city location, gender, ethnicity, household income, children status, home owner or renter status, transport habits, people living at home, marital status and occupation.
Your name and contact details are used when you win a prize.
Your id/passport/drivers/etc is used to verify you are who you say you are as well as to confirm your age.
We record your name, gender, id/passport/drivers/etc details as a snapshot with each ticket you play, which is then used to verify against your current account details.
Other information we collect
If you post messages to social media using an affiliate link, the inbound clicks will be recorded as a cookie on the the computers of the people who click on these links.

Why we collect data
Provide a personalized experience
Our goal is to provide accurate and relevant games to our players based on the products our advertisers wish to give away. The more we know about you, the easier it is for us to deliver games with prizes that are relevant to you.
Communicate with you
We use information we collect, such as your email address and phone numbers as a means to interact with you directly. For instance, if you win a competition, we may use your email to get hold of you in order to arrange delivery of a prize.
To list prize winners
Each time you win a prize we may post your username and the prize you have won to a public forum or to third party social media as a means to promote our services.
You are provided with a public username which is used with public interactions.
Updating your information
You can edit your information in your account pages at any time.
Deleting your information
If you decide to close your account, you can contact support who will delete your account. This process overwrites your account data with random data and iterates through your play history in order to remove stored snapshot data as well as to de-activate any tickets purchased. Once this process is complete, your account, prizes and points will no longer be available and can not be recovered.
Depending on the browser you use, you can delete any browser information we store through your browsers settings.
When you share your information
When commenting on competitions or account pages, your username and photo may appear alongside the comment. Do note that this information may become accessible through search engines.
When ScRRRatch.com shares your information
We do not share your personal information with companies, organizations, or individuals outside of scrRRRatch except in the following cases:
With your consent
We’ll share your personal information outside of ScRRRatch.com when we have your consent. For example, if you win a comparison prize, your information will be made available to the competition manager responsible for distributing the prize. Or, if you are the competition manager, we will share your details with prize winners.
Administrators are the top tier users who manage the functionality of our code base and who from time to time may come into contact with your information. For instance, if you require a password re-set, they will pull up your account information in order to send a password update link to your email address.
For external processing
We may from time to time require trusted third parties to process our data. For instance, we may require a fulfillment house to manage competition prizes and for this they would require access to winner information.
For legal purposes
If required to do so in order to meet any applicable law, regulation, legal process or enforceable governmental request.
Enforce applicable terms of service, including investigating potential violations.
To address fraud, security of technical issues.
We may share non-personally identifiable information publicly and with our partners like publishers, advertises and developers. For example, we share information with our advertisers to show trends about their competitions based on the information of all competition participants.
