I. Privacy Policy

 

The following is a list of the information we may collect (not all of the information is requested on all of our websites) and what we do with that information.

 

II. Automatically Collected Information

 

When you visit any of our websites, your computer’s IP address, browser type (such as Firefox, Safari, or Internet Explorer), operating system type, and referring URL are automatically logged. This information is not shared with anyone outside of our company, unless required by applicable law. We may use this information to contact you if necessary. Our goals in collecting this automatic information include helping customize your user experience.

 

III. Personal Preferences

 

Some of our websites use cookies, which are small text files that store your personal preferences and authenticate you to our web site. Most cookies that we use are “session cookies” which expire as soon as you log out of our web site. Some cookies get stored on your hard drive to remember your user name and other preferences you may have set while using our services. These cookies are never shared with anyone outside of our company. No personally identifiable information is stored in these cookies. Their sole purpose is to make our services easier and more enjoyable to use.

In addition to the cookies we use, as described above, companies advertising on our websites have the ability to assign their own cookies. This is a process over which we have no control. In addition, one of our advertising partners has implemented interest-based advertising. Interest-based advertising allows advertisers to show ads based on a user’s previous interactions with them, such as visits to advertiser web site and also to reach users based on their interests (e.g. “wedding photographer”). To develop interest categories, our advertising partner will recognize the types of web pages users visit throughout their network.

 

IV. Email Communications

 

Some of our websites require that you supply us with your name, email address, phone number, and other demographic information. This information is not shared with anyone outside of our company, unless required by applicable law. Any information we gather from you will only be used to contact you if requested or necessary. All personally identifiable information we collect remains in our hands.
