What Information Do We Collect Through The Website?
Omaze collects both personally identifiable information and non-personally identifiable information via our Website. When we refer simply to the term information in this Policy we are referring to how Omaze collects, uses, or shares both the personally identifiable, and non-personally identifiable information.
Personally identifiable information refers to information that when used alone or with other relevant data, can identify an individual (the “PII”). Omaze does not collect any PII unless you provide it voluntarily. If you do not want us to collect PII, you can simply decide not to submit it to us. The PII we collect may include:
- date of birth;
- contact information, such as name, postal address, email address and telephone number;
- other personal information you provide to us on our website and other data collected automatically through the website, as applicable.
We also collect certain non-personal information (data in a form that does not support direct association with any specific person or individual) by automated means when you visit the Website (the “Non-PII”).
Collection of PII
The circumstances in which you might provide to us PII include, but are not limited to, the following:
Account creation information. You can create a personal shopping account with Omaze, and if you do so you will be required to provide us with certain PII. This account will allow you to shop faster and easier, and to check on order status and history. In creating this account, you authorize Omaze to store your name, birthday, email address, telephone number and shipping and billing addresses. You should keep your account information current and complete. Please see our Terms & Conditions regarding how you can update or correct the information associated with your account. Your account will have a password that you will create; you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your user name and password. You may not use another person's account or password without their permission and you should protect the confidentiality of your account and password information by logging out of your account at the end of each shopping session.
Sweepstakes, contests and promotion information. You can participate in Omaze sweepstakes, contests, and promotions as long as you meet eligibility requirements and comply with all applicable rules. As part of your participation, you will be required to provide us with PII, including your name, mailing address, e-mail address and other information in order to administer the promotion, notify winners, etc.
Mailing list information. You can opt to be added to the Omaze mailing list. If you do so, you will be asked to provide us with your email address. Subscriptions to the mailing list can be cancelled at any time.
Submitting a request. When you submit a request or comment to our customer service department you will be asked to provide your email address, and depending upon the nature of your inquiry you may provide us with your PII.
Survey information. When you complete a survey on-line, we may ask for certain information from you (some of which may be PII), including your age, zip code, shopping habits, e-mail and/or mailing address.
Collection of Non-Personally Identifiable Information
We also collect certain Non-PII when you visit the Website. Much of this Non-PII is collected through the use of third-party tracking services, which includes Google Analytics, and other means, as further described below.
You can find out more information about Google Analytics cookies here: https://developers.google.com/analytics/devguides/collection/analyticsjs/cookie-usage. To opt-out of Google Analytics relating to your use of our Sites, you can download and install the Browser Plugin available via this link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.
Certain pages on the Website contain “web beacons” (also known as Internet tags, pixel tags and clear GIFs). These web beacons allow third parties to obtain information such as the IP address of the computer that downloaded the page on which the beacon appears, the URL of the page on which the beacon appears, the time the page containing the beacon was viewed, the type of browser used to view the page, and the information in cookies set by the third party. Web beacons also may be used to track whether you have opened an HTML email. When the email is opened, a part of the code that makes up the HTML page calls a web server to load the web beacon that then generates a record showing that the email has been viewed. Web beacons may also recognize when the email was opened, how many times it was forwarded and which URLs (links within the email) were clicked.
When you visit and interact with the Website, Omaze and third parties with whom we have contracted to provide services for us may collect Internet Protocol addresses (each an “IP Address”), as well as browser type, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and page navigation. An IP Address is a unique identifier number that certain electronic devices used to identify and to communicate with each other on the Internet; your Internet Service Provider automatically assigns an IP Address to the computer that you are using. We gather this information to track web site visitor movement in the aggregate, and to gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. Our goal in gathering this information is to learn how our customers and the public are using our service. We may use this information to enhance our Website or for other lawful purposes.
Do Not Track Notice
Your browser and other mechanisms may permit you to send do-not-track signals or other similar signals to express your preferences regarding online tracking. To the extent you employ such browser do-not-track signals or other similar mechanisms, we will use commercially reasonable efforts to honor such requests received by us to the extent we have the capacity and resources to identify and process your request. Due to the potential for rapid and diverse developments of technology in this area, we cannot guarantee that we can process every type of request that exists or may be developed in the future. As noted above, third parties, such as our advertising partners, may collect data that relates to you. We cannot control third parties' responses to do-not-track signals or other such mechanisms. Third parties' use of data relating to you and responsiveness to do-not-track signals is governed by their respective privacy policies.
How We May Use This Information?
Our primary purpose in collecting information about you is to provide you with services or information that you request or to process your payments. In addition, we may aggregate the PII that you provide with the PII that other users provide in order to conduct research, analysis, or studies for our own purposes (i.e., not related to providing you with specific services), including improving our services and future sweepstakes.
We may also use the information that you provide to us to communicate with you about our current activities, future events and sweepstakes or to notify you about any changes to our services. If you decide that you would no longer like to receive such messages you can opt-out from receiving such emails from Omaze. In order to opt-out you can click on an unsubscribe link provided at the bottom of every commercial e-mail that you receive from Omaze. If you opt-out, you will continue to receive communications from us relating to any payments you make or other services you request or purchase. If you decide at a later time that you would like to receive commercial emails from us, you may be able to re-add yourself to our communication list.
How May We Share Your Information?
We may disclose all of the information (described herein) that we collect, as stated in this Policy including in accordance with the terms set forth in this section. Except as stated in this Policy and as detailed below, we do not rent, sell, or share your information with other people or companies. The following describes how we may share your information:
Sharing Your Information with Subcontractors. In our efforts to provide the best quality service and experience to you, we may share information with subcontractors that provide us with services. These services may include, among other things, helping to provide services that you request, helping to create or maintain our databases, helping to research and analyze the people who request services information from us, and/or helping to process payment card information.
Sharing Your Information as Permitted by Law. We may share your information with others as required by, or permitted by, law.

Sharing Your Information with Law Enforcement. We may report to law enforcement agencies any activities that we reasonably believe to be unlawful, or that we reasonably believe may aid a law enforcement investigation into unlawful activity. In addition, we reserve the right to release your information to law enforcement agencies if we determine, in our sole judgment, that either you have violated our policies or the release of your information may protect the rights, property or safety of Omaze, you, or another person.
Business Transition. If Omaze becomes involved in a merger, acquisition, or any form of sale or transfer of some or all of its assets, your information will be transferred to the acquiring entity.
Your Comments. If you post a Comment to our Website, the information that you choose to post, including any personal information that you choose to post, may be available generally to the public.
Marketing Companies. As a general rule, we only provide limited, Non-PII (e.g., the city, or the state, in which a device is located or information about your search or posting history) usually in conjunction with a randomly assigned number or a number assigned to your Omaze account and not in conjunction with your name. However, for certain campaigns, we may provide third party advertisers with your email address which may be used by such companies to provide you with information about other products, services or companies.
Sharing Your Information with Charities and Prize Providers. If you enter a sweepstakes, whether by making a donation or using an alternate method of entry, make a donation in connection with entering into a sweepstakes, you agree that we may share your name and contact information with Charities Aid Foundation America (“CAFA”), a U.S. 501(c)(3) tax-exempt public charity that is the legal recipient of all donations through the Omaze platform, as well as the charity we designate as the benefiting charity for such sweepstakes and with any entity providing prizes for that sweepstakes, each of which may use your information for marketing purposes. If a designated benefiting charity is ultimately determined to be ineligible to receive a grant from CAFA, your information will not be sent to such charity.
Sweepstakes Winners. As further explained in our Rules, by entering into a sweepstakes, you grant us the right to disclose name, biographical information, pictures/portraits, video images, likenesses and/or voice to the general public if you are a sweepstakes winner.
Credit Card Information. Please note, when you use a credit card to make a donation, you are actually being redirected to our third party provider. WE DO NOT COLLECT, ACCESS, STORE OR PROCESS ANY CREDIT CARD INFORMATION.
How Do We Protect Your Information?
We employ reasonable physical and administrative safeguards to protect your personal information. While we will use such efforts, we cannot and will not insure the security of your information. Accordingly, we assume no liability for any disclosure of data due to errors in transmission, unauthorized third party access or other acts of third parties, or acts or omissions beyond our reasonable control.

CALIFORNIA PRIVACY RIGHTS
If you are a California resident, you may have certain rights under California law, including but not limited to the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”). This California Privacy Statement (“CA Privacy Statement”) supplements the information contained in the Omaze Privacy Notice above and applies solely to visitors, users, and others who reside in the State of California (“CA Resident(s)”, “you” or “your”). Any terms defined in the CCPA have the same meaning when used in this CA Privacy Statement.
Your Rights and Choices
The CCPA provides CA Residents with specific rights regarding their Personal Information. The CCPA defines Personal Information as any information that “identifies, relates to, describes, is capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular consumer or household” (hereinafter, “PII”). This CA Privacy Statement describes your CCPA rights in relation to our use of your PII, and explains how to exercise those rights.
Right to Know/Access.
As a California Resident, you have a right to know:
- The categories of PII we have collected, sold, or disclosed for business purposes about you;
- The categories of sources from which we collected your PII;
- The business or commercial purpose for collecting or sharing your PII;
- The categories of third parties with whom we have shared, sold, or disclosed for business purposes your PII; and
- The specific pieces of your PII we have collected.
As part of your “right of access”, you have the right to request that we provide your PII to you. Once we receive and confirm your “verifiable consumer request” (as describe below) we will provide the PII we have collected and currently hold to you “in a portable and, to the extent technically feasible, in a readily usable format.
Right of Deletion
As a California Resident, you have a right to request that we delete the PII we have collected from or about you, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable request (as described below), we will delete (and ask our service providers to delete) your PII from our records, unless an exception applies.
Please note, we may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service providers to:
- Complete the transaction for which we collected the PII, provide a good or service that you requested, take actions reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with you, or otherwise perform our contract with you.
- Detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, or prosecute those responsible for such activities.
- Debug products to identify and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality.
- Exercise free speech, ensure the right of another consumer to exercise their free speech rights, or exercise another right provided for by law.
- Comply with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act (Cal. Penal Code § 1546 seq.).
- Enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with consumer expectations based on your relationship with us.
- Comply with a legal obligation.
- Make other internal and lawful uses of that information that are compatible with the context in which you provided it.
Process To Submit A Request
To submit a verified request for your PII you may click here or call toll-free at 800-435-1976. You may also designate an authorized agent to submit a request on your behalf by clicking here or calling toll-free at 800-435-1976 and then also submitting written proof of such authorization via 800-435-1976.
Verification; Verification Method
Only you - or a person registered with the California Secretary of State that you authorize to act on your behalf - may make a verifiable consumer request related to your PII. You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child. In order to ensure we do not inadvertently delete your PII based on a fraudulent request, we will verify your identity before we respond to your request. To verify your identity, we will generally match the identifying information provided in your request with the information we have on file about you. Depending on the sensitivity of the PII requested to be deleted, we may also utilize more stringent verification methods to verify your identity, including but not limited to requesting additional information from you. Please note you may only make a verifiable request for access (and data portability) twice within a 12-month period. To be considered a verifiable consumer request, you must:
- Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected PII or an authorized representative.
- Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.
We cannot respond to your request or provide you with PII if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the PII relates to you. Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us. We will only use PII provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor's identity or authority to make the request.
Response Timing and Format
We endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within 45 days of its receipt. If we require more time (up to 90 days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing. If you have an account with us, we will deliver our written response to that account. If you do not have an account with us, we will deliver our written response by mail or electronically, at your option. Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the verifiable consumer request's receipt. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For data portability requests, we will select a format to provide your PII that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance.
We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.
Right to Opt-Out
As a California resident, you have the right to opt-out of the sale of your PII to third parties. To exercise this right, please click here.
Right of Non-Discrimination
You have a right to exercise your rights under the CCPA without suffering discrimination. Accordingly, we will not discriminate against you in any way if you choose to exercise your rights under the CCPA. Unless permitted by the CCPA, we will not:
- Deny you goods or services.
- Charge you different prices or rates for goods or services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties.
- Provide you a different level or quality of goods or services.
