Information Collection, Use, and Sharing
We are the owners of the information collected on this site. We only have access to collect information that you voluntarily give us via email or other direct contact from you. We will not sell or rent this information to third parties. We reserve the right to use information provided by you to respond to you regarding requests, such as following up on submissions, subscriptions, or account troubleshooting.
Our sites use Google Analytics to collect traffic data (ie, which web pages are the most popular or see the most activity) and basic demographics/geo location from users (user age groups, user gender, metro area location). None of this data can or may be used to specifically identify a user. If you wish to opt out from Google Analytic tracking on our website or any other, please visit the Google Analytics Opt Out page for more information on opting out of Google Analytics tracking: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout/.
We may share with third parties certain pieces of aggregated, non-personal information which does identify individual users, such as the number of users who searched for a particular story, number of site visitors on specific dates, or how many users interacted with a specific advertising campaign, for example.
We use “cookies” on this site. A cookie is a piece of data stored on a site visitor’s hard drive to help us improve your access to our site and identify repeat visitors to our site. Cookies enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience of our site and to serve content and advertisements relevant to you.
These cookies may be used to target and serve advertisements from third party advertisers on our site. These advertisers may use non-personally identifiable information about your visits to our site and other websites to provide advertisements that may be of interest to you.
We employ Google Doubleclick for Publisher Small Business (also known as Google Ad Manager and Google DFP) to display direct sold and third-party advertisements via ad networks. Non-personal information may be sent to Google DFP based on your browser’s activities, such as type of pages viewed and categories of interests, so that the advertising you see is relevant to you. Google may use information regarding its own users to select which ads to display for third party advertising. To learn more about how Google DFP uses this information, or to opt out of providing cookies to Google, visit: https://policies.google.com/technologies/ads.
There are options available to you to opt out of receiving targeted advertisements, both on our site, and on others. If you would like more information about ad targeting practices and your choices about opting out of receiving targeted ads, visit one of the following links: http://optout.networkadvertising.org/#!/ or http://optout.aboutads.info/#!/. Please contact us if you would like to know the identity of the third-party advertising companies we are currently using to serve ads.
Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information on our site and cannot be used to personally identify you. If you do not wish to browse the site with cookies, leave this site, and then clear your browser cache via your browser’s settings.
Access and Registration
Contests, Surveys, and Optional Submissions
From time-to-time our site requests information for surveys or contests or submission forms. Participation in these surveys or contests and use of these submission forms is completely voluntary and you may choose to participate and therefore disclose identifiable information. Information requested may include contact information (such as email address, phone number and name and address), and demographic information (such as zip code, age level). Contact information will be used to notify the winners and award prizes. During registration for contests you may be asked if you are interested in signing up for offers and newsletters. You may opt out of these offers and newsletters at any time. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site.

We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.
Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a lock icon in the address bar and looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the Web page.
While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information.
