Ok folks,


Just wanted to clear this up. I realize this post is showing up on a lot of sites and people are excited. However, HTD does not promote itself on this forum and has not done so for many months now. What users do outside of our forum is up to them and we cannot controll that. Users tend to spread the word when they hear something they like.


There is another user here that works with me and I have already asked him not to mention HTD here.


Anyway,


Have a great holiday season,


JT

It says you can either A) spend $50 or B) fill out their online survey.


From the rules:
NO PURCHASE NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN

On the official rules page they state:

Quote:
Privacy: Sponsor collects personal information from you when you enter this Sweepstakes.

Please review our Privacy Policy (click here to view).
Then there is no link to the privacy statement. They probably sell your info to telemarketers and the like.


I would love to win a set of 750's for my HT but not at the cost of my privacy.:(

Sorry about the non-existent link to the privacy policy. That has now been fixed.


BTW, all information submitted will be viewed by a select group of internal personnel only. We believe that selling, or even making available, customer information to outside parties is just not right.


I hope that clears things up. I wish everyone who enters the best of luck!

boxstamon,


Yeah, email addresses are a "dime a dozen" no big deal if I want I can change it easily. But giving out my physical address and phone number is another story.


If you want to be receiving unsolicited phone calls, junk mail, and spam more power to ya.


Speaking of spam, getting a yahoo or a hotmail account will guarantee that you will get spammed.


Where on their web site did you read that your information would be kept private?


If I read that I would have no problem but like I said they had no link to their privacy statement.

Due to advertising sensitivity, I am reluctant to give a link. However, you can find a link to the online submission in the official rules.


I hope that helps!

That was my bad, I updated an old version of the rules when I added the privacy link.


Everything is how it should be now, though.


I am off to go hit myself in the head with a tack hammer for making such a stupid mistake... :rolleyes:

jcoleman,


Don't feel bad. I do web development all day long and still make silly mistakes every once in while myself.:D

You know..the best way to win a contest is to NOT publish the URL to discusion boards. It tends to hurt you odds of winning. :)

This could be a coincidence but immediately after entering the contest I got an e-mail from a porn site. Until today I have received 0 spam. Seems a bit odd.

Joe,


That is unusual, and I ASSURE you this did not come from us. We do not share any information with any outside parties. Doing so would be a total breech of trust, and is something that we think is just plain wrong.


I hope that clears things up, and I wish you the best of luck!
