The People's Paper Privacy Notice discloses the privacy practices of our News Service. Specifically, it outlines the types of information that we gather about you while you are using the Service, and the ways in which we may use and share this information.
This Privacy Notice does not apply to any information you may provide to us, or that we may collect, offline and/or through other means (for example, live events, via telephone, or through the mail).
Please read this Privacy Notice carefully. By visiting and using the Service, you agree that your use of our Service, and any dispute over our online privacy practices, is governed by this Privacy Notice and our Terms of Service.
How We Collect Information
Information You Provide: We may collect and store information that you voluntarily supply to us while on our Site. This may include information that can be used to contact or identify you, such as your name, email address, or postal address. Some examples of this type of information include information that you electronically submit when you contact us with questions or participate in contests or surveys, information that you post on blogs, discussion forums or other community posting and social networking areas on our Service, and information that you electronically submit when you complete an online registration form to access and use certain features of our Service. We also may ask for information (including a credit card number and other financial information) from those users who make purchases or have payment transactions on our Service.
Location Information: We may collect location information (e.g., city and state and/or zip code) that you provide. Certain devices and browsers contain unique identifiers that can be used to identify the geographical location of the device. When you use such a device or browser to access our Site, your device and/or browser may automatically collect and/or transmit your location information. We also may collect GPS information from the device if the device transmits it.
Information Collected to Improve the Service and Deliver Targeted Advertising: We also collect and store information through a variety of automatic technologies, such as browser cookies, pixels and web beacons about your use of our Service, including device identifying information such as IP addresses, MAC address or other device-specific alphanumerical ID numbers, the make and model of your device, the internet provider associated with your device, how many times a particular page within the Service is visited, which features the users interact with, and your device or computer's connection to the Internet. If you choose to connect to our Service through a social network such as Facebook, we may automatically collect your profile information. These things allow us, among other things, to improve the delivery of our web pages to you and to measure traffic on our Service.
The information we collect may be collected directly by us, or it may be collected by a third-party website hosting provider, or another third-party service provider, on our behalf.
We also may use "cookies" and other similar technologies on the Service. Cookies are small files that are placed on your hard drive for record-keeping purposes and to enhance your experience with the Service. By showing how and when visitors use the Service, cookies help us deliver advertisements, identify how many unique users visit us, and track user trends and patterns. They also prevent you from having to re-enter your preferences on certain areas of the Service where you may have entered preference information before. The Service also may use web beacons (single-pixel graphic files also known as "transparent GIFs") to access cookies and to count users who visit the Service or open HTML-formatted email messages.
How Information is Used
We use the information we collect while you are using the Service in a variety of ways, including, for example, for the purpose for which the information was submitted, to process your registration request, to provide you with services and communications that you have requested, to send you email updates and other communications, customize features and advertising that appear on the Service, to deliver our Service content to you, to measure Service traffic, measure user interests and traffic patterns, and to improve the Service and the services and features offered.
We may use location information, either information you provided by you or information automatically collected, in order to provide you with content, services and advertising that is relevant to your geographic area. We may combine information we collect from you while you are using our Service with information that we collect from other sources to customize features, content and advertising that appear on our Service.
In addition, we may use any information submitted by or collected from you via the Service for any purpose related to the Service, including to contact you for customer service purposes, to inform you of important changes or additions to our Service, and to send you administrative notices and any other communications that we believe may be of interest to you.
Your Choices: When we request information from you on the Service, you may always choose not to provide us with that information. But if you decline to supply or provide us with certain information while using the Service, you may not be able to use or participate in some or all of the features offered.
If you want to limit the information that is automatically collected while you use our Service, most Web browsers allow you to disable certain functionality or set certain privacy setting. If you choose to disable cookies or turn off other functionality, you may not be able to use or participate in some or all of the features offered through the Service. If you would like more information on how to opt out of information collection practices by many third parties, visit the Digital Advertising Alliance's website at www.aboutads.info.
How Information is Shared
Sharing with Affiliates, Partners and Third Party Service Providers: We may provide your information to our affiliates or to third parties, including our third party service providers and contractors, for purposes related to Service administration and other services. For example, if you use a credit or debit card to complete a transaction on our Site, we may share your personal information and credit card number with a credit card processing and/or a fulfillment company in order to complete your transaction, or such service provider(s) may collect that information from you directly, on our behalf.
If you do not wish certain information to be shared for these purposes, send a letter to the Online Privacy Coordinator whose contact information is listed at the end of this Privacy Notice.
We also make some content, products and services available through our Service through cooperative relationships with third-party providers, where the brands of our provider partner appear on the Service in connection with such content, products and/or services. We may share with our provider partner any information you provide, or that is collected, in the course of visiting any pages that are made available in cooperation with our provider partner. In some cases, the provider partner may collect information from you directly, in which cases the Privacy Notice of our provider partner may apply to the provider partner's use of your information. The Privacy Notice of our provider partners may differ from ours. If you have any questions regarding the Privacy Notice of one of our provider partners, you should contact the provider partner directly for more information.
Sharing with Third Parties for Advertising and Promotional Purposes: We may use third-party service providers to target and serve some of the advertisements you see on the Service. We may share technical or aggregate information, such as type of pages viewed and categories of interest, from our Service with these service providers and advertisers for their use in displaying ads on our Service. These third party providers and advertisers may use their own browser or flash cookies, web beacons and similar technologies to collect technical information (such as device unique identifier, IP address, MAC address, browser type, pages visited, and location information) from users of the Service that is generated automatically as a user views or interacts with an ad. These service providers may use that information, sometimes in conjunction with similar information gathered through other websites and other sources, to deliver advertisements on this Service, and on other websites.
For information about use of your information by us and by third-party advertising service providers for advertising, see the section "Data Collected in Connection with Ad Serving and Targeting."
Sharing with Third Parties for Other Purposes: Please be aware that we may occasionally release information about our visitors if required to do so by law or if, in our business judgment, such disclosure is reasonably necessary: (a) to comply with legal process; (b) to enforce our Terms of Service; or (c) to protect the rights, property, or personal safety of our Site, us, our affiliates, our officers, directors, employees, representatives, our licensors, other users, and/or the public.
Please also note that as our business grows, we may buy or sell various assets. In the unlikely event that we sell some or all of our assets, or our Service is acquired by another company, information about our Service users may be among the transferred assets.
Data Collected in Connection with Ad Serving and Targeting
We operate in compliance with the Digital Advertising Alliance's Self-Regulatory Principles for Online Behavioral Advertising, www.aboutads.info.
We also may use third-party service providers, to target and serve some of the advertisements you see on the pages of our Service. We may share technical or aggregate information about your interaction with our Service, such as type of pages viewed and categories of interest, from our Service with these service providers for their use in displaying ads on our Service. These providers may use their own cookies, web beacons and similar technologies to collect similar information from our Service. These service providers may use that information, sometimes in conjunction with similar information gathered through other websites, to deliver advertisements on this Service, and on other websites that participate in our service providers' advertising networks, that are tailored to match the perceived interests of consumers. The information obtained by our third-party service providers also may be used to help measure and research an advertisement's effectiveness, or for other purposes.
Unless you affirmatively provide information, the data collected in connection with the ad serving and ad targeting on our Service does not identify you personally and does not include your name, address, email address or telephone number, but it may include device identifying information such as the IP address, MAC address, cookie or other device-specific unique alphanumerical ID of your computer.
The use and collection of information by third-party advertising service providers are governed by the relevant third party's Privacy Notice and are not covered by our Privacy Notice.
