How we gather information from users.
How we collect and store information depends on the page you are visiting, the activities in which you elect to participate and the services provided. You can visit many pages on our site without providing any information. Other pages may prompt you to provide information, such as when you request certain features (e.g., newsletters, news updates and other products), or submit an inquiry. You may also provide information when you participate in sweepstakes and contests, voting and polling activities, message boards and chat rooms and other interactive areas of our site. The TMS Marketing Site may combine information that we collect with information we obtain from third parties and affiliates.
What we do with the information we collect.
Personal information collected by the TMS Marketing Site may also be used for other purposes including but not limited to site administration and troubleshooting. Certain third parties who provide technical support for the operation of our site (our Web hosting service and our newsletter provider, for example), or who provide billing, processing, shipping, promotions management or email management may also access such information.
Aggregated Information (information that does not personally identify you) may be used in many ways. As one example, we may combine information about your usage patterns with similar information obtained from other users to learn which pages are visited most or what features are most attractive. Aggregated Information may occasionally be shared with our advertisers and business partners, but cannot be used to contact you individually.
Information sharing and disclosure.
1. We may disclose your information in response to subpoenas, court orders, or legal process, or to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims.
3. As we continue to develop our business, we may sell, buy, merge or partner with other companies or businesses. In such transactions, user information may be among the transferred assets.
Your choice to opt out.
A controlled program of email marketing is an important element of our online publishing business. From time to time we may send email that advertises our own products and services, and email that advertises the products and services of our advertising partners, to Registered Member. We may also allow other advertisers to directly send advertising email to Registered Members. Any email sent will provide the Registered Member with the ability to opt out of any future email advertising or marketing.
Affiliated sites, linked sites and advertisements.
Tribune Media Services expects its partners, advertisers and third-party affiliates to respect the privacy of our users. However, third parties, including our partners, advertisers, affiliates and other content providers accessible through our site, may have their own privacy and data collection policies and practices. For example, during your visit to our site you may link to, or view as part of a frame on a TMS Marketing Site page, certain content that is actually created or hosted by a third party. Also, through the TMS Marketing Site you may be introduced to, or be able to access, information, Web sites, advertisements, features, contests or sweepstakes offered by other parties. Tribune Media Services is not responsible for the actions or policies of such third parties. You should check the applicable privacy policies of those third parties when providing information on a feature or page operated by a third party.
Please be careful and responsible whenever you are online. Should you choose to voluntarily disclose personal information on our site, such as in message boards, chat areas or in advertising or notices you post, that information can be viewed publicly and can be collected and used by third parties without our knowledge and may result in unsolicited messages from other individuals or third parties. Such activities are beyond the control of Tribune Media Services and this policy.
The TMS Marketing Site does not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from or about children under 13 except as permitted by law. If we discover we have received any personal information from a child under 13 in violation of this policy, we will delete that information immediately. If you believe the TMS Marketing Site has any information from or about anyone under 13, please contact us at the address listed below.
