Information and Uses
When someone visits the Site, our web servers automatically gather information that allows the site to communicate with the visitor’s computer during the visit. We also track other information from time-to-time, such as the number of visits to the site, which parts of the site visitors select, IP address (the Internet address assigned to your computer from your Internet Service Provider), domain type, browser type (e.g., Netscape, Internet Explorer, etc.), date and time of day. If we do collect such information, we will use it for statistical purposes to help us design and administer the Site. Please note that this information does not disclose Personal Information that would permit us to identify or locate individual visitors.
Privacy concerns focus on “Personal Information,” which is information that could identify a specific individual (such as names, addresses, e-mail addresses, and telephone numbers). If during your visit you personalize the Site, complete an order form, or submit other information to us, you may be asked to provide us with Personal Information. We may collect and use that Personal Information to provide you with products or services, to bill you for products and services you request, to market products and services which we think may be of interest to you, or to communicate with you for other purposes.
As explained below in the section on Dissemination of Information to Third Parties, we do not distribute or sell Personal Information to third parties for the purpose of allowing them to market their products and services to you. Moreover, as explained in the Opt Out/Modify Information section, we will make a reasonable effort to remove your Personal Information from our database in such a way that you will not receive future communications from us. If you notify us that Personal Information previously submitted to our site is no longer accurate, we will make a reasonable effort to make appropriate corrections. To facilitate our efforts, it would be helpful if you could let us know the context in which you provided Personal Information.
Information Placed on Your Computer
We may store some information (commonly known as a “cookie”) on your computer when you look at or use the Site. This information facilitates customizing your use of the Site and ensures that you do not need to re-enter your details every time you visit it. You can erase or block this information from your computer if you want to. (Your ‘help’ screen or user manual should tell you how to do this.)

The Site contains information that may be of special interest to children, but News Media Group does not seek through the Site to gather Personal Information from or about persons under the age of 17.
News Media Group does not seek any sensitive information from visitors to our Site, unless legally required to do so, for example, in connection with recruiting or hiring. Sensitive information includes a number of types of data relating to: race or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or other similar beliefs, trade union membership, physical or mental health, sexual life or criminal record. We suggest that you do not provide sensitive information of this nature. However, if you do provide such information, News Media Group accepts your explicit consent to use that data in the ways described in this Privacy Statement or in the ways described at the point where such information is disclosed.
