Hi there. We really don’t mean to bore you, but we’ve got to let you know about something important: your privacy.

 

We don’t want you to worry about what we do with the information you give us and we also need to tell you about the information we collect. When you put it all together what you have is our privacy policy. So please forgive the formal words, but we're committed to doing the right thing.

 

If you have any questions or concerns about how we handle the information you give us, just ask - we know how you competitive tigers like to keep your entries under wraps!
