We do not knowingly collect personal information from or create profiles of a person under the age of 18. Our account registration process uses age and identity verification software.

If you choose to do so, you can configure your browser to notify you when a new cookie is received. You can also view and delete existing cookies, prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, and disable cookies altogether. If you disable cookies, you can still use, but your ability to use some areas or functions of the website may be limited.

You may access this website from anywhere, but you must be physically located within the State of Michigan and a Michigan resident to visit certain areas of this website or purchase a lottery ticket. By visiting this website, we automatically collect information about your location through your IP address and geo-location technology. In certain instances, such as when you use a mobile device, we may require use of a geo-location service. If you consent to use a geo-location service, you may opt-out at any time. If we cannot verify your location, you are prohibited from making any purchases and will be blocked. Information about your location may be retained for 14 months.

This website uses "cookies" to customize your browsing experience. A cookie is a small text file that is saved on your web browser when you visit a website. We use the following cookies:
  • Session cookies allow you to move through many pages of a website quickly and easily without having to authenticate or reprocess each new area you visit. Session cookies are destroyed after successful completion of a transaction, after a few minutes of inactivity, or when the browser is closed.
  • Persistent cookies help websites remember your information and settings when you visit them in the future. Unlike session cookies, persistent cookies continue to exist after a few minutes of inactivity, after the browser is closed, or after a user completes a single session. Persistent cookies generated by this website will expire after a set period of time based on the purpose of the cookie.
We use cookies to perform statistical analyses on website usage, better understand how people use this website and how we can improve it, and to help you process transactions. You can view and delete existing cookies through your browser. If you choose, you can configure your browser to notify you when a new cookie is received, stop accepting new cookies, or disable cookies altogether. If you disable cookies, your ability to use some areas and functions of this website may be limited.

We retain information collected through this website in accordance with applicable record retention policies, disposal schedules, and state law. Where no retention policy, disposal schedule, or state law applies, we may retain information for any period of time or not at all.

We will only share personal information about you with others if we:
  • have your consent to share the information;
  • need to share your information to provide the product, service, or transaction you have requested;
  • need to protect our rights or property;
  • are authorized or required to do so by law (e.g., to respond to subpoenas, court orders, legal process, or requests pursuant to a statute requiring or permitting disclosure such as the Michigan Freedom of Information Act).

If you provide us with your email address or phone number, we may email, text, or, in rare circumstances, call you regarding various account notifications, confirmations, or transactions. You may also opt-in to receive promotional material and newsletters. You may unsubscribe to these services by following the instructions contained in the email or text message.
We may retain and use information you provide about third parties to provide requested services. For example, if you request to share promotional offers with a third party through the “tell-a-friend” option, we may use the information you provide to share that promotional offer.

Links to other organizations on this website are provided for informational purposes only. In providing these links, we do not endorse the content, products, services, viewpoints, or security of these other websites. This policy does not apply to other websites. If you leave this website through a link, this policy no longer applies and you are subject to the terms and policies of that website.

Security measures have been integrated into the design, implementation, and day-to-day operations of this website as part of our continuing commitment to the security of electronic content as well as the electronic transmission of information. We do not, however, guarantee security in any way. Your use of this website is at your own risk, and we are not liable for any damages or losses resulting from a security breach except as required by law.

The information provided in this policy should not be construed as business, legal, or other advice, or as warranting or guaranteeing the security of information provided through this website.
