All kidding aside, us mods cant enter the give aways for a very good reason. Goc wishes to avoid the impression of favoritism, if a mod wins a contest, even legitimately, it doesnt really look good. To avoid this, we simply cant enter. We are aware of this before we become moderators. For one, I think its a great way to handle things. Besides, jwire said he will buy me bacon so its all good

Like any contest you need to put in your details so that we can validate the entry.

Here is Gun Owners of Canada's Privacy Policy.

http://www.gunownersofcanada.ca/faq.php?faq=terms#faq_pol

And we are a pro gun Company (hence the gun giveaway) that backs and is backed my the NFA and CSSA.

I'm pretty confident about GOC's privacy policy and it being respected.

However, like SantaClawz, I have concerns. No internet site is totally immune to breaches, hacks or data theft. If 1000 members enter the contest and the data is stolen, that's 1000 addresses in the field which the robbers know there are guns at. I don't want my address on that list, thanks.

SantaClaws suggestion is a good one. You should think of a way of making this safe for the participants as much as for GOC.

Haywire1
01-01-2014, 02:18 PM
Ok, before this winds up heading like another giveaway did in the past where a member carried on about privacy concerns, there is a simple solution, if you do not want your info out there at all, dont join the giveaway contest. Our privacy policy is as clear as we can make it, and also as secure. The fact that we do these giveaways on a regular basis sort of requires we verify information. Internet identities are not as secure as people would think, just accessing any site logs your ip address, which can lead to all kinds of discoveries.

I am not bashing those with questions, however as I said, the solution is simple, dont join he contest if your that concerned. This isnt a thread about debating the policy or anything else, it is a giveaway thread, and like jwire stated, with any giveaway, esp firearms, certain details need to be provided.

jwirecom109
01-01-2014, 02:19 PM
Don't enter then.

Its part of the giveaway, don't like it don't enter.

Anyone that has a problem with it front up $2700 and do your own giveaway, just saying.

The site is secure and so is the data, no one is forcing you to enter, but if you want to then follow the rules.

This isnt a thread about debating the policy or anything else, it is a giveaway thread, and like jwire stated, with any giveaway, esp firearms, certain details need to be provided.

Please re-read my post. I was not arguing any policies but merely suggesting this could be done differently (for latter giveaways implied) in order to better ensure personal information security.

This was meant as a constructive comment, not to start a debate. Facts are that highly secure sites get hacked and data is compromised everyday. And you won't have me believe GOC is a such highly secure site to start with. I've been in this field long enough to know.

Now, if you will excuse me, I'll shut-up and go back under my rock.

Haywire1
01-03-2014, 08:31 AM
Zguy, re read mine. I didnt suggest you were arguing policies. We had another giveaway where the thread derailed into an entire debate. I was simply stated this wasnt going to happen in this one. As I said, the solution is a simple one, noone has to enter the contest, should an individual decides that they dont want their info on the net, dont enter the contest. Jwire stated it even simpler, dont want to provide the legally required information, dont enter.

I have recruited a few of my friends, and if others would do the same, we will easily make the goal.. How can you go wrong?? Sign up for a great site, get entered to win a great gun.

Maybe somebody should make a recruitment post in off-topic.

So alittle math for all of you.

GOC needs from Jan 1 to Dec 31 an average of 16.5 people to join the forum each day to make our goal.

to-date we are roughly 300ish people or 3 people per day behind.

Start spreading the word!!

We can't give this away unless we hit 12,000 by Dec 31, 2014

Previously the GOC was encouraging growth of the NFA by offering a second entry to NFA members as we no longer have any relationship with lobbyist groups the rules have been updated to inform people they will no longer receive a 2nd entry for being NFA members.
