However, it does not apply to personal information that we collect, use or disclose for journalistic purposes. By submitting your personal information, subscribing to our services or products or using our websites, you signify your agreement to the terms and conditions of the Privacy Policy. Please check back periodically as the Privacy Policy may be amended from time-to-time. What is personal information? ‘Personal information’ means information about an identifiable individual. Examples of personal information that we may collect, use and disclose include your contact information (name, address, phone number or email address), your billing information (credit card number or banking information), and other information that you may provide to us. Personal information does not include publicly available information or your business contact information. What personal information do we collect? To whom do we disclose personal information? In most cases, we will collect personal information directly from you when you purchase or interact with us about a product or service that we offer or provide (for example, when you subscribe to a newspaper or when you email us or contact us through our website). Occasionally, we may collect personal information from a third party based on your consent or as otherwise permitted by law. We identify the purposes for which we may collect, use and disclose your personal information at the time that we collect such information. Third parties may be placing and reading cookies on your user’s browser, or using web beacons to collect information, in the course of ads being served on your website. Such purposes include providing and delivering products or services to you, responding to your inquiries, and internal business purposes such as administering or improving our website. We obtain your consent for such purposes at or before the time that we collect, use or disclose your personal information, except where permitted or required by law. How do we retain and safeguard your personal information? We retain personal information for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected and as permitted or required by law. We have implemented physical, organizational, contractual and technological security measures to protect your personal information from loss or theft, and unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use or modification.

Advertising Disclosure

In addition to featuring display advertising such as banner and sidebar ads, occasionally publishes other content paid for and produced with clients. This is sometimes known as "custom content", "branded content", "sponsored content" and "native advertising". We do not accept affiliate links; meaning we do not get any compensation if you click a link and purchase a good or service from that brand. It is our policy only to accept compensation from businesses and brands we think our readers would be interested in and therefore we retain control over all the copy in all our editorial and sponsored posts.
