Privacy Policy and Statement

We know that online privacy is very important to many of our users. We gather certain types of information about the users who browse Engaged Enthusiast Media by Beckett sites, so we want you to understand the terms and conditions surrounding the capture and use of that information. This policy describes the information we collect about our users and what may happen to that information; it explains the privacy practices of all sites hosted by Engaged Enthusiast Media by Beckett.

 

Information We Collect


When you register with an Engaged website online, the browser will ask you to provide our name, email address, and other personal information. You must supply a user ID or screen name to use when you access some parts of our web sites. Your user ID or screen name identifies you to other users when you submit and publish comments or other material.

 

When you register, you can choose whether or not you want to provide us with your age and gender. You may also choose to receive email updates about what's new on the sites, as well as product emails and third-party emails. To receive these email updates, please check the 'yes' box at the prompt.

After you register, you will receive an email containing a password that you must use along with your chosen user ID to access certain areas of Engaged Enthusiast Media by Beckett sites.

Please note that you must provide an e-mail address to be a member of the site and receive members-only content and services. You will not receive a password if your enter an incorrect e-mail address.

We may ask you for personal information at other times, including (but not limited to) surveys, sweepstakes, contests or promotions sponsored by EEM and/or our partners. Wherever we collect personal information at such times, we try to include a link to this Privacy Policy on that page.

During the times you use our site(s), we automatically track certain information about you. This information includes the URL that you just came from (whether it's on our site or not), which URL you go to next (whether this URL is on our site or not), what browser you are on, and your IP address. Many sites collect this information routinely and automatically as well.

In an effort to offer and provide services tailored to you, EEM sites use "cookies" to store and sometimes track information about you. All EEM sites that prompt you to log-in or provide information tailored to you require that you accept cookies. A cookie is a small data file that the Web site writes to your hard drive when you are browsing at the site. A small data file might contain information such as a user ID that tracks the pages you've been to. The cookie will not contain any personal information unless you supply it yourself. A cookie can't read data from the files on your hard drive or read cookie files that other sites create.

Advertising networks that place ads on any EEM sites may also use their own cookies.

EEM sites collect IP addresses for system administration and to report aggregate data to those who may want to advertise on our sites.

If you decide to establish a credit account with us, we collect necessary information such as billing address, credit card number and credit card expiration date.

If you choose to comment on posts and/or communicate with other users, we will collect such information about you as you choose to disclose.

Some EEM sites offer contests that require you to provide certain personal information--at a minimum, your name and email address. In some cases, you must supply answers to survey questions in order to be eligible to enter the content. The information entrants provide in such surveys verifies the entrant's identity, allows EEM to send the entrant an email acknowledgements of receipt, and enables EEM to contact winners and/or prize recipients. There are two situations in which EEM will divulge this information to a third party--provided the entrant gives express consent:

  • A user may expressly choose to receive additional information from company sponsoring the contest, in which case the user's personally identifiable information is divulged to the advertiser.
  • In some cases, the EEM site may host contests that are administered by a sponsor. In these cases, the information the user provides is divulged to a third party as long as the user has given express consent.

Because contest rules can vary, all information about each contest is posted during the event. All contests and sweepstakes are conducted to comply with United States federal and state laws.

 

How does EEM use the information you provide?


EEM uses any information you voluntarily provide to enhance your experience with our sites. Your information helps us provide interactive or personalized elements and/or create future content that appeals to you and our other users.

 

Sometimes, EEM utilizes information that users voluntarily provide to send content updates to users. We will not send you third-party emails unless you have chosen to receive such emails.

EEM researches our users' demographics, interests, and behaviors based on the information users provide at registration, during a promotion, or from our server log files. This research is compiled and analyzed on an aggregated basis and helps us better serve our users.

 

Our Disclosure of Your Information


We do not share a user's individual information with any third party, except in the case of some contests and sweepstakes--and then, only if you have expressly consented to such as disclosure. EEM does not control the practices of our advertisers. If you have questions about how one of our advertisers uses information about you when you click an ad and go to its content, please contact the advertiser directly.

 

If it is deemed necessary and/or appropriate, EEM will disclose information, at its sole discretion, to law enforcement or other government agencies. In such cases, your User ID can be used to identify your activities on EEM sites.

 

Deleting or Changing Your Registration Information


If you request us to do so, EEM will remove credit card number and credit card expiration date from the membership file. Please send such requests to webmaster@engagedmediamags.com.

 

During any checkout process, you may review and change your email subscriptions and/or registration information, including your password, name, address, phone number, fax number, and email address.

You may change your credit card number and credit card expiration date on file by accessing the Account Summary page.

If you request that we remove your registration information, your request does not ensure that such information will be completely removed from the EEM system. EEM retains registration information as a record of all site activity. Retention of such information also serves to enforce the Terms of Agreement, and to resolve disputes and problems associated with the site.

Once you post publicly on the site, you can't change or remove any of your comments.

 

Third Party Collectors of Information.


This privacy policy addresses only the use and disclosure of information we collect from you. When you disclose your information to other parties, whether via EEM users or advertisers on the site or via other sites throughout the Internet, different rules may apply to how third-parties are allowed to use or disclose the information you have provided to them. Because EEM does not control the privacy policies of third parties such as advertisers on the site, your information is subject to the third-party's privacy customs and policies. We encourage you to read policies and ask questions before you disclose your personal information to others.
