Collection and Release of Information          

SCEL employs reasonable measures to ensure the privacy of information it gathers during your visit to any of our webpages and Players’ Club (if you choose to provide the additional information requested on that page) and other sites sponsored by SCEL. 

SCEL does not collect “personal identifying information” as defined in S.C. Code Ann., §§ 16-13-510(D) and 30-2-300 (et seq.) from visitors passively viewing its content.  “Personal identifying information” is a person’s first name or initial and his/her last name combined with any other data element that can be used to personally identify the person (i.e. SSN, birthdate, bank or credit card number, driver’s license number, etc.). However, even if you view our content without actively providing any information, SCEL captures certain information about your visit which does not identify you personally.  Your web browser automatically transmits certain information to SCEL.  This information includes the Internet Protocol (IP) address from which you access the website, the browser and operating system you use to access our site, the date and time you access the site, the pages you visit, and the links you may access through our website.  SCEL uses this information to help make the site more useful to visitors, to determine the number of visitors, and the types of technology our visitors use.  This information does not identify you personally.

To the extent SCEL collects “personal identifying information” as defined in S.C. Code Ann., § 16-13-510(D) for retailers enrolling in the Retailer Zone, visitors enrolling in the Players’ Club and/or visitors entering electronic second-chance drawings, the information is redacted and/or encrypted.  E-mail addresses or other information obtained as a result of interacting with SCEL will be used to respond to your inquiry, to provide you with requested information, or to enhance or benefit SCEL and its products.  If you make an electronic entry as part of a second-chance promotion offered by SCEL, certain information will be maintained by contractors operating on behalf of SCEL.  The information you provide will not be disseminated to other third-parties except as may be authorized or required by South Carolina law (e.g. S.C. Freedom of Information Act, S.C. Code Ann., § 30-4-10 et seq.).  The information you provide will not be sold to other third-parties.

Retention of Information 

The data SCEL collects about you from its website is maintained until no longer needed for reference and then deleted or destroyed as specified in our records retention schedule.
