Topspot provides a fun and simple way to connect with your friends, family and anyone else by allowing you to create and participate in digital contests. Using Topspot requires you to share some information with us, and you will also access the information of others. We are grateful for the trust you put in us when you use Topspot, so we will respect your information you provide to us. This Privacy Policy provides further details regarding the information we collect, how we use it, who we share it with, and the choices we give you to control, access, and update your information. Should you have questions about anything in our Privacy Policy, please feel free to contact us.


When you interact with our services, we collect the information that you choose to share with us. For example, most of our services require you to set up a basic Topspot account, so we need to collect some important details about you, such as a username, a password and an email address. If you choose to set up an account with us using social sign-on, for example by using your Facebook account, we may collect additional information you have made available to those websites or software applications. We may also ask you to provide us with some additional information that will be publicly visible on our services, such as a profile picture.
When you use Topspot you may also provide us with information through your use of the platform, for example when you create a Comp or submit an Entry. Content you provide to us can potentially be saved or copied by other users of Topspot. You should always take this into consideration when using Topspot.
If you contact Topspot or communicate with us in any other way, we will also collect information you provide to us from those communications.
