4.2. All Entrants will have their names and put into a spreadsheet. This spreadsheet will then be sent to our third party operator “Random.org” to carry out the draw on our behalf. This is to ensure that the draw is as transparent as possible and truly random and can not be interfered with in any way by Verdant Cards Limited or any one else. The only personal data we share with the third party is your full name. We do not sell or share any of your other data for any reason. Your full name will also be posted on our “winners page”. If you do not wish us to share your full name or publish this to the Website please email us at least 1 working day before the draw takes place with an alias which will be shown instead or put a note on the qualifying purchase at checkout with this information.
