Welcome to the website run by MYGALLONS LLC (collectively hereinafter referred to as “MYGALLONS,” “we,” “us,” or “our”). MYGALLONS is committed to respecting the privacy rights and concerns of all users of our MYGALLONS.com website (the “Site”) and participants in our services (the “Services”) (we refer to the Site and the Services collectively as the “MYGALLONS Features”). As such, we have established and implemented this privacy statement to inform visitors to the Site and users of the Services how we use and protect the information we collect.

MYGALLONS does not collect personally identifiable information unless our visitors voluntarily provide it to us. We do, however, collect certain types of information and ask for personal information in certain circumstances, such as when you set up an account. The following sections describe what type of information we collect, when we collect it and how we use it.
In order to use certain functionality of the MYGALLONS Features, you will have to create a user account which requires you to submit certain personal information. When you register and create an account, we require you to provide us your name, telephone number, mobile telephone number, e-mail address and home address. We charge a fee for some of the Services, such as when you purchase MYGALLONS Features through the Site. When setting up an account, you may also submit the type of payment method you would prefer to use, including your credit card. If you do not provide such information when you set up your account, you will have to provide it at the point of purchase of the Services. Upon activating an account, you will select a user name and password. Your user name and password will be used so you can securely access and maintain your account.
Although most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, you can usually change your browser to prevent that or to notify you when you are sent a cookie. Even without accepting a cookie, you can still access the MYGALLONS Features. However, to access your account, you will have to re-enter your user name and password each time you visit the Site.
We may offer contests and sweepstakes to our account holders form time to time. To enter each particular contest or sweepstakes, account holders must submit their user names and/or their mobile phone number or e-mail address. We may incorporate certain information from our account holders when they participate in contests or sweepstakes so we may better understand what types of contests or sweepstakes appeal to our customers. We will only use such information in the aggregate and we will not connect such information to personally identifiable information, such as people’s names or e-mail addresses. For example, if we hold a contest to win a football, we may determine, in the aggregate, how many of our account holders who enter the contest have selected “sports” as an interest. We may also use your home address to send you a prize you may have redeemed in participating in a contest.
We provide customer service support through our call center and/or e-mail. In order to provide customer support, we will ask for your e-mail address, user name or mobile phone number.

As stated above, we use your personal information such as your name, address, and mailing address to send you prizes you may have won in a contest and we may use your credit card number or mobile phone account for billing purposes when we charge you for the purchase the Services available on our Site.

In an attempt to provide increased value to our visitors, we may choose various third party web sites to link to, and frame within, the Site. We also participate in co-branding and other relationships to offer e-commerce and other services and features to our visitors and account holders. However, even if the third party is affiliated with us, we have no control over these linked sites, each of which has separate privacy and data collection practices independent of us. Data collected by our co-brand partners or third party web sites (even if offered on or through our site) may not be received by us. As such, we have no responsibility or liability for these independent policies or actions, and are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of any such web sites. These linked sites are only for your convenience and you therefore access them at your own risk. Nonetheless, we seek to protect the integrity of the MYGALLONS Features and the links placed upon each of them and therefore request any feedback on not only the MYGALLONS Features, but for sites each links to as well (including if a specific link does not work).
From time-to-time, we request information from users via surveys. Participation in these surveys is completely voluntary and you therefore have a choice whether or not to disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as your email address), and demographic information (such as interests or age level). Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of the MYGALLONS Features and will not be transferred to third parties.
By visiting the Site or using the Services, you consent to the collection and use of information by us as set forth in this privacy statement. If we decide to change our privacy statement, we will post those changes within this page so our users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it.
