Thank you for visiting this website, which is operated by an Affiliate of Cox Media Group, LLC (“CMG“). “Affiliate” means a company controlling, controlled by or under common control with another company. This site is intended to provide existing and prospective advertisers and other business customers of CMG Affiliates with information regarding the business-to-business services offered by CMG and its Affiliates and to enable existing and prospective business customers of CMG to indicate their interest in purchasing such services.
This privacy statement is provided by CMG (“we,” “us” or “our”) to explain the ways in which we collect information from you through your use of this site (the “Site”), and the ways that we and CMG Affiliates may use that information. This privacy statement does not apply to any information you may provide to us through other means; for example, at a live event, via mail, or via telephone. Please read this privacy statement carefully so that you understand our online privacy practices. By using the Site, you agree that your use, and any dispute over our online privacy practices, is governed by this privacy statement and our visitor agreement. If you have questions regarding privacy issues, please contact us.
TYPES OF INFORMATION WE COLLECT
Overview. The information we gather generally falls into one of two categories: (1) information (for example, your name and business e-mail address) that you voluntarily supply when you complete and submit the online form on the Site indicating that you have an interest in obtaining information about or otherwise purchasing services offered by CMG and its Affiliates; and (2) information gathered on usage patterns and preferences as visitors navigate through the Site. In some cases, one of our agents or Affiliates may collect the information on our behalf. Third party Service Providers (as defined below) that provide all or some of the services available through this Site also may be gathering the same kinds of information.
Information that You Submit to Us. To indicate an interest in learning more information about the business-to-business services offered by CMG and its Affiliates to their business customers you may provide certain information by filling out and submitting our online form. Such information includes your name, the name of your business, your business phone number, your business e-mail address and the zip code for your business. By submitting such information, you authorize CMG or its Affiliates to contact you by telephone and/or e-mail to provide you with more information about our business services.
Web Beacons. The Site may contain electronic images (called “single-pixel GIFs” or “web beacons”) or other tools that allow us and our Affiliates to count users who have visited particular pages of this Site. We may use these tools and other technologies to recognize which links visitors click.
Browser Level Information and IP Addresses. Our web servers automatically collect limited information about your computer configuration or your mobile device when you use the Site, including the type of browser software you use, the operating system you’re running, the resolution of your computer monitor or mobile device, the website that referred you, the type of device you’re using, and your IP address. (Your IP address is a numerical address that is used by computers and mobile devices connected to the Internet to identify your computer or mobile device so that data (such as the web pages you want to view) can be transmitted to you. We also use IP address information for systems administration and troubleshooting purposes. Your IP address alone does not tell us who you are.).
DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION
Why We Collect Information From You. Like any business, it’s important for us to know our customers — their needs, their likes, what they want and expect from us. Except as expressly set forth in this privacy statement, we will not provide, sell or rent to any third party any personally identifying information that we collect from you through your use of this Site.
Service Providers. All or portions of the Site may be provided or supported by our third-party service providers (“Service Providers”), and we may share any of the information that we collect from you through the Site (e.g., anonymous information collected through cookies on your browser, information you submit to us via our online form) with such Service Providers. Our Service Providers have access to your information solely for purposes of acting on our behalf and providing services to CMG.
Our Affiliates. We may share any of the information that we collect from you (including anonymous information and personally identifying information that you may provide) with the other CMG Affiliates so that we and they can provide you with information about products and services that may be of interest to you.
Statistical Information. Much of the information we collect is in the form of aggregated statistics, such as the traffic that visits various pages within the Site, and the habits and preferences of our audience. Such aggregated information does not include any information that would identify you personally. We may use such aggregated information and disclose it to any third parties as we see fit.
Sites to Which We Link. The Site includes links to other websites, whose privacy policies we don’t control. When you access another site or purchase products or services or conduct other transactions through their sites, use of any information you provide is governed by the privacy statement of the operator of the site you’re visiting or the provider of such products or services.
Other Disclosures. We reserve the right to release information about users of the Site when release is necessary or appropriate to comply with law, to enforce this privacy statement or our visitor agreement, or to protect the rights, property or safety of users of the Site, the public, our customers, or our company and its employees, agents, partners and Affiliates. As our business grows, we may buy or sell various assets. In the unlikely event that we merge with another entity or otherwise transfer substantially all of our assets to another entity (including, without limitation, to one of our Affiliates as part of an internal reorganization), information collected from this Site would be among the transferred assets.
OPTING IN/OPTING OUT
If you have submitted information to us via our online form and we contact you by e-mail, you will always have the opportunity to “unsubscribe” from future e-mail communications (for example, by clicking on an unsubscribe link in our e-mail message).
All information gathered through the Site is stored within database(s) operated by us or by a Service Provider on our behalf. We and/or our Service Providers secure the information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. However, no security system is impenetrable. We cannot guarantee the security of our database, nor can we guarantee that information you supply won’t be intercepted while being transmitted to us over the Internet.
We may change the terms of this privacy statement or introduce new terms and conditions from time to time, in which case we will post an updated version of this privacy statement on this Site and will update the “Last Updated” date above to reflect the date the changes take effect. By continuing to use this Site after we post any such changes, you accept this privacy statement, as modified.
