Yahoo Promotions

Most promotions that are hosted or co-sponsored by Yahoo don't require you to be a Yahoo registered user.

Information Collection and Use Practices

  • When you enter a promotion, sweepstakes, or contest hosted by Yahoo or sponsored by Yahoo and/or our many partners, we ask for your name, address, and email address.
  • You may be asked to provide additional information or to answer certain questions, some of which may be optional, in order to participate.
  • We may contact you in connection with a particular promotion, such as a sweepstakes or contest, in order to update you of your status, administer the promotion, let you know that a promotion has ended, and for other purposes.

Information Sharing and Disclosure Practices

  • If data will be shared, then there will be notice prior to the time of data collection or transfer.
