What we do with your information
Personal data we collect is processed and securely stored by third-party companies, including a subscription processing service, customer database platform, email service provider, and online product directory service, all of which are contractually bound as independent agents to ensure the security of this data. These companies are contractually prohibited from sharing personal information from our audience to other companies without express authorization from Creative Age, DC Communications and DC Media.
However, if you request product information through an online product directory hosted by Creative Age, DC Communications and DC Media, you agree that any personal information you provide may be shared with the supplier of products or service about which you're inquiring. Creative Age, DC Communications and DC Media have no responsibility for that supplier's privacy practices.
If you provide credit card and other financial information in connection with the online purchase of goods and/or services from Creative Age, DC Communications and DC Media, this information is used only to process the payments through a PCI-compliant service and is not stored by Creative Age, DC Communications and DC Media.
If information you've volunteered, such as survey information, is being collected for possible publication, that intention will be stated clearly in the information request.
If you do not want us to contact you, please provide us with your first and last name, postal address, telephone number and email address, and we will place you on our "do not contact" list.
