Consumer Information Collection Policies

For each visitor to our websites, our web server automatically recognizes the consumer's domain name and IP address, but not the email address.

We collect the following information:
  • The domain name, but not the email address, of visitors to our websites;
  • The email addresses of those who communicate with us electronically;
  • Information provided by consumers who register as users, enter contests and sweepstakes, and/or make online purchases at our websites.
  • Aggregate information on what pages consumers access or visit;
  • Information volunteered by the consumer, such as test answers, survey information and/or site registrations.

The information we collect may be used to improve the content of our websites or used by us to contact consumers for marketing purposes. If information volunteered by the consumer, such as survey information, is being collected for possible publication, that intention will be stated clearly in the information request.

We also allow access to our databases by third parties that provide us with services, such as technical maintenance or forums software, but only to the extent necessary to provide those services. If you purchase items on our websites, we may forward your information to third parties for services such as credit card processing and order fulfillment.

If you provide credit card and other financial information in connection with the online purchase of goods and/or services from Creative Age, such information shall be used by Creative Age only for the purpose of processing the payments and shall not be maintained on file by Creative Age.

There are also times when you provide information about yourself to us in areas of a Creative Age website that are managed or participated in by third parties, such as advertiser-sponsored contests or online directories where you may request information directly from advertisers or other third parties listed in our magazines. In such cases, the information may be used by us and by such third party, each according to its own policies. Creative Age is not responsible for the policies or practices of these advertisers or other third parties.

There may also be occasions when we are required by law, legal process, litigation and/or requests from public or governmental authorities to provide access to our databases, or to disclose information about you. We may also disclose information about you if we determine that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect our operations or users, or to enforce our terms and conditions. In those instances, the information is provided only for that purpose.

In the event that Creative Age is acquired by, merges with, and/or sells its assets to a third party, or becomes aligned with another company or business entity, we may transfer any and all information we collect to the relevant third party, who shall be entitled to use this information, as set forth in the Privacy Policy.

Cookies

We may use cookies to control the display of ads, to track usage patterns on the websites, to deliver editorial content, and to record registration and personalization information. Our cookies may contain personally identifiable information and such cookies may be shared with our affiliated companies, such as a credit card processing provider. Some of our advertisers occasionally employ cookies as well. We do not have control over cookies placed by advertisers and are not responsible for such cookies.

If you don't want to accept cookies, your web browser probably includes an option that rejects them. However, if you set your browser to reject cookies, some portions of our websites may not function properly.

While your individual information is protected as outlined above, we reserve the right to use aggregated, anonymous data about our users as a group for any business purpose, such as analyzing usage trends and seeking compatible advertisers and partners.

Minors

All Creative Age websites are business-to-business sites, and are not directed to, or intended for use by minors. We are committed to protecting minors' privacy online. We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from minors. We encourage persons under the age of 18 to consult with their legal guardians before providing any information through any Creative Age websites. If we learn that we have collected the personal information of a child under 13 we will take steps to delete the information as soon as possible.

Consumer Information Use by Creative Age
If you have provided us with your email address or communicated with us electronically, we may contact you from time to time via email with information about:

  • New products, services or events we're introducing (either specific to the magazine or newsletter to which you subscribe or to other Creative Age magazines, newsletters, events or products); or
  • Products or services or events from approved third parties we feel you may find useful.

Also, if you respond to a contest or survey via email or our websites, you will be automatically subscribed to any related email products, including e-newsletters or digital editions. We may also send you email about products or services from approved third parties. You may choose to unsubscribe by clicking "unsubscribe" in the email, by clicking REPLY with “unsubscribe” in the subject line, or by contacting subscriber service at the email listed in the message.

Privacy Preferences

You may also specify how we may contact you (email, postal mail, fax, telephone or mobile phone) by changing your privacy preferences through the “Manage Subscription” tool on each publication’s website, or by calling 800.624.4196 or 847.763.9615, or by writing to Creative Age, Attn: Opt-Out, 7628 Densmore Ave., Van Nuys, CA 91406-2042.

If you do not want us to contact you, please provide us with your exact name and address, telephone number, fax number, cell or other phone number and email address and we will be sure your name is included in our "do not contact" list.

Consumer Information Use by Third Parties

If you have provided us with your email or postal address or communicated with us electronically, we may send you messages from time to time by email or postal mail on behalf of organizations whose products or services we think you might find interesting. If you do not want to receive information from such organizations, please change your privacy preferences through the “Manage Subscription” tool on each publication’s website, or call 800.624.4196 or 847.763.9615 to speak with a subscriber service representative or by writing to Creative Age, Attn: Opt-Out, 7628 Densmore Ave., Van Nuys, CA 91406-2042.

Changes to Privacy Policy

We may use customer information for new, unanticipated uses not disclosed in this privacy notice. If our Privacy Policy changes at some time in the future, we shall post the changes to our websites to notify you of these changes and provide you with the ability to opt out of these new uses. To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, you are responsible for monitoring our websites to determine if any changes have been made to the Privacy Policy.

If you are concerned about how your information is used, we recommend that you periodically check the Privacy Policy on the website of the magazine to which you subscribe or call 800.624.4196. If you have any questions or feel that these tools do not adequately protect your privacy, please call the Circulation Director at 800.442.5667 or 818.782.7328.
