This Privacy Statement ("Statement") describes the policy adhered and enforced by "Dream Home Contest.com" for collecting, managing, and using personal and corporate information collected through our websites and mobile applications (hereinafter referred to as the "Site"). Dream Home Contest is owned and operated by We Are Communities Foundation. The terms "we", "us", and "Dream Home Contest" refer to the Site’s parent company "We Are Communities Foundation, Inc.", a California corporation. NOTE: This privacy policy applies only to www.dreamhomecontest.com.

Dream Home Contest is committed to respecting and protecting the personal privacy of its members and those who visit its Web site. It is our policy to acquire personal information from users only by overt and voluntary means, only when it is in the interest of the user to provide it, and to utilize this information only for the purpose it was provided.

The information that follows explains the kinds of information the Site collects, how it is used, the conditions under which it is made available to third parties, how information is maintained, and our compliance with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act.

I. Information We Collect and How We Use It

This site collects anonymous data that is not indicative of and cannot be traced to an individual without the cooperation of their Internet Service Provider. This data includes information about the user's remote IP address, referral data (which page "linked" to the present request), and the browser software's user-agent string. This information is accepted passively from the HTTP headers that are sent from the user when requesting any file from the server. Other anonymous data entered by the user may be collected in a common repository, including terms entered into the search engine, ZIP codes entered into the council locator, etc.

Personally identifiable data is collected only by means of form interfaces on the site, into which the user must voluntarily enter the information requested. This information is requested only when it is necessary to accomplish the overt purpose indicated by the interface containing the form that requests it. Such for interfaces require only the information reasonably necessary to accomplish the overt purpose indicated on the interface.

No attempts is made to covertly or "quietly" collect personally identifiable information, nor are cookies or any other tracking technology used for the purpose of coordinating information that a user may opt to enter in various interfaces on the site.

All data entered into the Site and stored on Site’s servers are controlled exclusively by We Are Communities. We do not use any shared or hosted systems that are controlled or managed by other potentially interested parties. Information entered by site visitors is retrieved directly by We Are Communities employees or agents.

The anonymous information collected is used to monitor the usage of this Web site and the interests of those who use it. Data such as the volume of traffic to the server, the number of visitors a certain section of the site receives each month, or the most popular search terms are analyzed to derive general statistics about the site's reach and the audience's usage patterns.

Personally identifiable information is used only for the express purpose for which it was submitted. For example, if a user enters their contact information in the "Contact Us" form. This information will be directed to the appropriate person within our organization with the knowledge and authority to respond to your request. When a user answers questions related to the contest, the answers will be used specifically for selecting a winner of the contest.

II. Transfer of Information

Public Content. Stories related to our sponsorships, partners, and philanthropic services are often publically publicized by the media. Such stories could include visitors to our site which receive some sort of benefit from our organization. Information publicized by the media is considered by We Are Communities Foundation as public information. Based on the public nature of the information, the site could post this information for general reading and review.

Third Party Service Providers. We may use third parties to provide technical and customer support services, perform tracking and reporting functions, conduct quality assurance testing, perform payment processing, and provide other services in connection with the Site. We may share information about you with them so that they can perform the services they are required to perform, but they are not permitted to use your personal information other than to provide the services requested by you. All third party service providers are required to enter into non-disclosure and data security agreements.

Third Party Advertising. Third parties serve some of the ads on the Site, but we do not send any individualized personal information to them. Note that we do not rent, share, sell or trade personally identifiable information with third parties for their direct marketing purposes.

Aggregate Information. We may share non-personal information in the aggregate to third parties relating to user behavior in connection with actual or prospective business relationship with those third parties, such as advertisers and content distributors. For example, we may disclose the number of users that have been exposed to, or clicked on, content on our Site.

Business Transfers. We may share your information with our parent company, subsidiaries, joint ventures, technology partner, or other companies under a common control that we may have now or in the future, in which case we will require them to honor this Statement. If another company acquires our company or all or substantially all of our assets, that company will possess your information, and will assume the rights and obligations with respect to that information as described in this Statement.

Investigations. We reserve the right to investigate abuses on the Site, and enforce and apply our Terms of Service. We may disclose information about you to appropriate third party authorities if we have a good faith belief that such disclosure is reasonably necessary to (a) take action regarding suspected illegal activities; (b) enforce or apply our Terms of Service; (c) comply with legal process and law enforcement instructions and orders, such as a search warrant, subpoena, statute, judicial proceeding, or other legal process served on us; or (d) protect our rights, reputation, and property, or that of our users, affiliates, or the public.

III. Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) of 1998

This legislation applies only to Web sites of a commercial nature. However, We Are Communities Foundation considers this act to provide sound advice for any Web site that is intended for use by children.

Therefore, We Are Communities Foundation does not use its Site to collect any personally identifiable information from children under 13 years of age. Any input form that requests personally identifiable information that appears on an interface that is expected to be viewed by children under 13 years of age is accompanied by a notice that submissions cannot be accepted from users under 13 years of age. Where "age" or "date of birth" is requested, no information will be stored or transmitted unless the response indicates that the user is 13 years of age or older.

If you become aware that your child has provided us with personal information without your consent, please contact us. If we become aware that a child under 14 has provided us with personal information without parental consent, we will take steps to remove their information and terminate the child's account.

IV. Links

The Site may contain links to third party websites with which we have no affiliation. Except as set forth herein, we do not share your personal information with those third parties, and are not responsible for their privacy practices. We suggest you read the privacy policies on all such third party websites.

V. Security

We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

VI. Information Alerts and Notices

For Users that complete information forms located on the web site, you are then inherently given us permission to send you email messages and text messages that we deem appropriate for your viewing. Requesting information or for an agent to contact you is considered an opt-in approval for We Are Communities Foundation to contact you or provide information alerts and notices.

Subscription to our information alerts and notices will not exceed 3 up-dates from We Are Communities per month. Entrants may cancel their alert and notice subscription at any time by notifying our support center. This can be done by sending an email to support@wearecommunities.org and by putting any of the following words in the subject line: END, CANCEL, UNSUBSCRIBE, STOP ALL, and QUIT.

VIII. Policy Modifications and Deviations

We may revise this Statement from time to time. The most current version of the Statement will govern our use of your information and will always be located on our web site. If we make a change to this Statement that, in our sole discretion, is material, we will notify you either by prominently posting a notice of such changes prior to implementing the change on the Site and/or via the email associated with your account.
