We do not currently collect any personally identifiable information from children under the age of thirteen.

Children of any age should always ask a parent for permission before sending personal information to anyone online.

Since this is a contest site, we run a contest. When running a contest, we ask visitors for VikingsContest.com Name and Email. We use contact data from our contests to send users information about contest information, schedules, reminders, and results. On occasion we will include in the emails a good word from our sponsor(s). The customer's contact information is also used to contact the visitor when necessary for winner notification and prize delivery confirmation. The contest run is hosted on the VikingsContest.com site. Users may opt out of receiving future mailings by filling out the Request Form.
VikingsContest.com utilizes a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information. All user contact information is contained behind a "firewall" and only accessible by a limited number of employees who have special access rights to production systems. Contest Names and Email addresses are stored in a secure database, which is also located behind a firewall. No money is processed through VikingsContest.com, since this is a free contest. In worst case scenario, the major security risk is the loss of an email address and loss of seasonal data for unforeseen events. If you have forgotten your Name or Email, you may use the Request Form. You may be asked to provide your Name or Email address, but then what was the point of contacting the Administrator? If you desire to change your Email, you must fill out the Request Form or contact the administrator.
