Civics Bee Contest
Privacy Policy

Effective: February 10, 2022
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation, together with local chapters of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce are co-sponsors (“Co-Sponsors”) of the Civics Bee Contest (“Contest”). The Co-Sponsors are committed to respecting your privacy. This Privacy Policy describes the personal information we collect, use and share when you participate in the Civics Bee Contest. The Contest is governed by the Contest Rules.  Defined terms not otherwise defined in this Privacy Policy are defined in the Contest Rules.

What Personal Information Will We Collect?
To participate in the Contest, you will need to have your parent’s or guardian’s consent to provide your name, zip code and your parent’s or guardian’s contact information, including their phone number and email.  We also ask that you tell us what school you attend and your grade.
If you are one of the Winners, we will need to collect additional information from you prior to releasing the cash prize, including a taxpayer identification number for you or your parent or guardian and your complete address. 

How Will We Use Your Personal Information?
We will only use your personal information for the purpose of administering and promoting the Contest.  This includes contacting you if you are chosen as a Finalist. If we use your personal information for other purposes, we will first obtain your consent.

How Will We Share Your Personal Information?
We have structured our online contest platform so that your personal information is not shared with our service providers. Your personal information will not be provided to the judges of the Contest. 
The Co-Sponsors will share your personal information between them only as needed to administer the contest, such as contacting you if you are selected as a Finalist. If you are one of the Winners of a cash prize, we will need to share your personal information with the government for tax reasons.

How Do We Respect Children’s Privacy?
All children under the age of 13 must have their parent’s or guardian’s consent to participate in the Contest. If a child is selected as a Finalist, only the parent or guardian will be contacted. If a parent or guardian believes that their child has provided us with information without their consent, please contact us and we will delete such information as soon as reasonably possible.
