Our Privacy Policy

We are firmly committed to ensuring the privacy of your personal information.

We will never share, sell, or rent your personal data. Your submitted information is only available to the Stargate Fan Awards team members who manage this information for purposes of contacting you or sending you emails based on your request for information and, where applicable, to provide subscribers with newsletters regarding the awards.

Real Names

Although we do ask for your real name in your profile, you are never obligated to provide this information to us for any reason. You may, instead, opt to submit a screen or display name in lieu of your real name. We do not verify actual names on accounts.

Email Addresses

We do, however, require your actual email address to allow your participation in the awards program. We verify your email address prior to adding it to our web site and/or newsletter databases. You may opt to hide your email address from the public in your profile. If you choose not to hide your email address on your account, your address will be visible to other Stargate Fan Awards web site registered members.

IP Addresses

We also capture and monitor your IP address to enforce participation limits and minimize any potential issues with ballot stuffing during nominations and voting. We only permit one account per IP address unless you discuss your situation with us via email. In some cases, we may allow more than one account, especially when more than one person in the same household participate in the awards and only with advance communication with the team. If you believe that you qualify, please contact the team at -email-.

We do not use IP addresses with the intent of determining any user's physical address or location. Captured IP addresses are used internally within our registration system. Only the Webmasters are capable of viewing an individual's IP address in the database. This information is only used as necessary for the operation of the site.

Removing Your Information

If, at any time, you unsubscribe from our newsletters, your email address is immediately removed from our newsletter database. You may unsubscribe to newsletters using the option at the bottom of each newsletter or in the newsletter subscription area of our home page.

We require users to re-subscribe to our newsletters each year. All existing subscriber information is deleted permanently from our newsletter databases at the end of each awards season which is usually sometime in November without your express consent.

Likewise, if you choose to delete your login account on the web site, please notify the Stargate Fan Awards Webmaster at -email- and all of your personal information will be removed from our databases within 48 hours from the time that we receive your request for removal.

Why did I receive an email from you?

If you received a mailing from us, (a) your email address is either listed with us as someone who has expressly shared this address for the purpose of receiving information in the future ("opt-in"), or (b) you have registered an account on our web site.

How do you protect my privacy?

We use strict security measures to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of data used by our system.

How can I stop receiving solicited (newsletter) emails from you?

Each email sent contains an easy, automated way for you to cease receiving email from us, or to change your expressed interests. If you wish to do this, simply follow the instructions at the end of any email.

How can I stop receiving unsolicited email from you?

It is not our intent to send emails to anyone without their express consent. If you have received unwanted, unsolicited email purporting to be sent from us, please forward a copy of that email along with your comments to our technical team at -email- for review.

We will confirm that your information has been removed from our system and offer assistance in troubleshooting the source of the abuse.
