Information We Collect and How We Use It
You can visit our websites and learn about the People's Choice Awards and community without providing personal information. However, to participate in our website clubs, communities or special offers you may need to provide personal information.
Personal information is information that can identify you such as your full name, your e-mail address or postal address. We collect personal information to provide you information and samples you request, to give you a customized interactive experience, and to help us develop new products and services that meet your needs. We use personal information you provide only for purposes consistent with the reason you provide it such as:
Website Programs / Contests / Information Requests: Sycamore collects information necessary to meet your request for product samples, to enter contests, promotions, or to join website communities and programs. This may include your name, postal address, e-mail address, and telephone number. We may ask your age to make sure you are old enough to participate.

Samples: We may ask you to provide personal information or answer survey questions to receive samples or other offers.
Surveys: We may ask you to provide general information such as household size and interests if you choose to participate in website surveys. You can always choose not to participate.

Consumer Research: In some countries, we may ask if you want to participate in consumer research about our products or services. If you choose to participate, we may ask you additional information to help us better understand your needs. You can always choose not to participate.
Web Purchases: If our website provides the option to purchase products, and you choose to make an online purchase, we will ask for your credit card information.
