Contest prizes. (Legal?)
Join to comment
I am running the fourth annual eight piece building challenge, and this year, I wanted to spice it up and give out physical prizes. Is this allowed?

Of course, I would only take the person's address JUST for sending the prizes, and I would erase the address history at once.

Obviously, I am very careful when it comes to privacy. I don't give out my real name, (I use an alias) I never tell people where I live, and I don't reveal other details that the internet dosen't need to know.

Therefore, I would be very careful with the winner's addresses, and I would have them email their addresses to me on a private email alias.

Is all of that allowed?

Yes, it is legal. What I would do with the winners is invite them to a private group, exchange information, and then you delete the private group once they get their prizes. Or even in the private group, just exchange e-mail addresses and use those for further information. If anyone is wary about giving out information, then they might as well not enter the contest. Make sure to make it well known that anyone who competes has a chance of winning and will have to disclose information to receive a prize. If they are not comfortable with that and win, they will have to forfeit their prize to someone else.

Thank you very much.
