Our websites collect two types of User information - Automatic User Information and Specific Subscriber Information.
Automatic User Information is electronically captured every time anyone visits our digital property. This information is gathered anonymously and includes such details as the amount of visitors to a particular site, pages viewed, country of origin and a unique IP address. However it is impossible for us know any personal details about you such as your name, address and phone number.
Specific Subscriber Information is only collected when a person is asked to fill out an online form such as when you apply for our e-news letter or enter a contest. At the time you will be provided with an explanation stating exactly how the required information may be used. We never collect any personal information without your knowledge and consent. You may be asked for your name, age, sex, country, city and other personal relevant details.
How We Use Your Information
Automatic User Information is considered general information used to tabulate overall User logs. This data is ultimately pooled to provide us with general usage statistics. We use this information to evaluate overall traffic to our sites and to enhance your User experience.
General User information is routinely made available to interested parties and may be posted on our websites or published in our media kit. Personal information is never included. General user information is often used by a third party to evaluate a strategic partnership with our property or an advertiser to evaluate the effectiveness of an advertising campaign.
Specific Subscriber Information is used in two ways. Your name and contact information are only used expressly for the purpose of communicating directly with you through e-mail. This usually means that you will receive our weekly newsletter and from time to time an e-mail notice regarding special promotions or offers. If you have subscribed to a contest you will be informed through e-mail that you have won.
Specific Subscriber Information is also used to create a more in-depth User profile. Most of the general type of Specific Subscriber Information, for example your age and sex, is anonymously pooled and used to develop more detailed User statistics. The tabulated data is routinely made available to interested parties and may be posted on our websites or published in our media kit. This information is often used by third parties to evaluate effectiveness of an advertising campaign.
Notwithstanding the above Specific Subscriber Information is sometimes made available to a third party for technical support under very specific and controlled circumstances such as maintaining or upgrading our software.
We Do Not Sell Personal Information
Unless specifically stated at the time you provide personal information we do not sell personal subscriber email addresses or any individual personal information such as your name and address.

These companies typically use a cookie or third party web beacon to collect this information.
