When you subscribe to our blog, we receive your email address, and that is used to deliver the subscription to your inbox. If you also have a Blogger blog, we also receive your blog name when you subscribe to, like, comment on, or share our blog.

There is also a link to Manage Subscriptions which will allow you to change or correct your email address. If you would like to completely delete your email record from our blog, please choose unsubscribe at the bottom of your most recent email, then email us at submissions@stampendous.com, and request that your email and other information be removed from all other records.

Commenting on our Blog

When you comment on our blog, our site collects your name, your email address, your Blogger user name, if any, and it can determine what country you are in.

Prize Winners and Contests

When you enter our contest, you are linking your project to the InLinkz system. Your project can be seen on our blog page along with a link to your entry. If this links to your personal blog or Facebook page or other destination, then all the information available there is public. You can see the InLinkz privacy policy here.

When you win a prize on our blog, you are asked to email us with your mailing address so that we can deliver your prize. The email(s) you send to claim your prize are stored on our email server for up to 7 years. Prizes represent a distribution of product for our sponsors that is considered advertising, and they must keep information on winners for tax purposes to prove they distributed the prizes. Legally, we have to provide a list of prizewinner names when that is requested by other entrants or law enforcement officials. We post the list of prize winners, publicly, on our blog, and that post remains on our blog until we remove it. Those posts contain the same links as for entries. We have, as yet, never removed any posts from our blog. If you would like to request that we do so, please email us at housemousechallenge@hotmail.com. The OFFICIAL RULES for all our contests are found in the right sidebar of our blog under HMFMC Challenge Rules.

We hope this policy is clear and easy to understand. The House-Mouse Design Team will never sell or share any of your personal information unless required to do so by law, or unless you specifically provide permission for us to do so. We take your privacy seriously, and are happy to answer any questions you may have about our policies or data that we store.
