What happens to information you provide on a contest entry?
Miss Boss uses a variety of contests and similar promotions to increase awareness of our business. We generally request contact information so that we can notify you if you are a prize winner. As well, in some cases we may contact contest entrants with product information. Contest entries generally include a way for you to indicate that you do not want to be contacted based on the information on your entry. Because contests may involve co-sponsors outside Miss Boss who have their own privacy practices, it is always advisable to read the entry form and contest rules before entering.
