As part of offering and providing customizable and personalized services, RK Sports Promotions use ‘cookies’ to store and sometimes track information about you. A cookie is a small data file that certain websites write to your hard drive when you visit them. A cookie file can contain information such as a user ID that tracks the pages you've visited. But the only personal information a cookie can contain is information you supply yourself. A cookie can't read data off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites. On RK Sports Promotions website where you are prompted to login require that you accept cookies.

Advertising networks that serve ads onto RK Sports Promotions website may also use their own cookies.

From time to time, RK Sports Promotions and/or RK Sports Promotions advertisers may offer contests and sweepstakes in which we request certain personal information. At a minimum, the required information includes name and email address; in some cases, the user must answer mandatory survey questions about a range of other personal data. The information gathered in the entry form is used to verify the entrant's identity, to send the entrant an email notification that their entry has been received, and to contact winners and/or prize recipients. There are two situations in which RK Sports Promotions will divulge this information to a third party--provided the user gives express consent:

  • A user may expressly choose to receive additional information from the contest sponsor, in which case the user's personally identifiable information is divulged to the advertiser.
  • Some of the contests may be hosted on the RK Sports Promotions website but administered by the sponsor; in such cases, the information a user provides is passed on to the third party as long as that user gives express consent.

Because the rules and terms of each contest can vary, all information about each contest is clearly posted during the event. All contests and sweepstakes are conducted in full accordance with United States federal and state laws.
