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 register for access to portions of our site, sign up for membership, request certain features (e.g., newsletters, news updates and other products), sign up for a newspaper subscription or make a purchase. 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.
Like most web sites, NYMetroParents.com also collects information automatically and through the use of electronic tools that may be transparent to our visitors. For example, we may log the name of your internet service provider or use "cookie" technology. Among other things, the cookie may store your user name and password, sparing you from having to re-enter that information each time you visit, or may control the number of times you encounter a particular advertisement while visiting our site. As we adopt additional technology, we may also gather information through other means. In certain cases, you can choose not to provide us with information, for example by setting your browser to refuse to accept cookies, but doing so may limit your ability to access certain portions of the site or may require you to re-enter your user name and password. Additionally we may not be able to customize the site's features according to your preferences.
What we do with the information we collect.
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. We also may disclose your information in response to a court order, at other times when we believe we are reasonably required to do so by law, in connection with the collection of amounts you may owe to us, and/or whenever we deem it appropriate or necessary to give such information to law enforcement authorities. Please note we may not provide you with notice prior to disclosure in such cases.
Additional disclosures; Your choice to opt out.
The quality news and information on NYMetroParents.com is supported by advertising revenue and a controlled program of e-mail marketing is an important element of our online publishing business. Like other web publishers, we sometimes permit our advertising and promotional partners to e-mail you about services, features, products, special offers and unique content we believe might interest you. If you prefer not to receive e-mail communications sent directly from our advertisers or promotional partners, you will be given an opportunity to decline before you provide us information we might use for this purpose or you can change your privacy preferences at any time by sending an email to us at [email protected], detailing your privacy request. If you decline at the time you provide us such information or opt to change your privacy settings as described above, we will not share the personally identifiable information you provide with non-Affiliated advertisers for such purposes, though we may on occasion send you information on their behalf.
Users who have consented to receive receiving marketing and promotional e-mails from us can unsubscribe by either following the specific instructions included in such communications (as applicable) or may "opt-out" of receiving such e-mails from us at any time by sending an email to us at [email protected] detailing your privacy request.
Please note that "opt-out", "unsubscribe" and other privacy requests may not take effect immediately and may take a reasonable amount of time to receive, process and apply, during which time your personal and other information shall remain subject to the prior privacy settings. Additionally, you should be aware that any information provided to third parties prior to your election to opt-out, unsubscribe or otherwise cannot be retrieved or rescinded by us unless required by applicable law, and you cannot retroactively opt out or unsubscribe with respect to such third parties. Further, also please note that in order to keep you informed about the operation of our site, products and services and those of our Affiliates (including announcements or updates related to any past conduct or transactions in connection with your use of our site, products or services or those of our advertising and/or promotional partners), we may always send you emails and contact you as needed for the proper functioning and administration of our site, and such products and services.
