Covering the people and business that shape our industry, W&E Today provides retailers and manufacturers with education and ideas that provoke innovation in the Western and English markets.
The Information We Collect and How We Use It
We will ask you for personal information when you request a magazine subscription on the Western & English site in order that we may process and fulfill your order. We may also ask you for personal information at other times, such as when you use our message boards. We may also keep records of any correspondence you send to us.
We monitor the web page viewing patterns and site usage of our visitors. From time to time, we may use the information we collect about you to send you e-mails about changes to the Western & English site, new services and upcoming site features or special offers we think you would enjoy. If you would rather not receive this information, or if your personal information changes (such as your mailing address) or you wish to have it removed from our records, we will attempt to provide a way to correct, update or remove the personal data you give us if you contact our Webmaster at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Western & English may share certain information you provide with the retailers and manufacturers whose products and services are displayed on the site. We may also share aggregate statistics about our users with reputable advertisers, business partners, sponsors and other third parties, such as the breakdown of audience by gender, age group, and number of visits to the web pages for different films, television shows, promotional activities, products and services, but these statistics will include no personal identifying information.
Use of IP Addresses
When you open a web page, the computer acting as the server for that web page automatically assigns your computer a number called an IP address. The web server can then automatically identify your computer by its IP address.
Western & English may collect your computer's IP address to audit and administer the use of our site, as well as to report aggregate use information to our advertisers, to the manufacturers and retailers whose products and services are featured on our site, and to other third parties. Generally, our IP addresses do not contain any personally identifying information, so that your session will be logged, but your personal identity will remain anonymous in such logs (except if needed to identify a user when necessary to enforce compliance with our rules or terms of service or to protect our service, site, customers or others).
You can usually set a browser's preferences to disable cookies, if you choose to do so, or to notify you when you are receiving a cookie, so that you can decide whether to accept it. Sometimes you may receive cookies from our advertisers or the web sites of the retailers or manufacturers whose products are displayed on the Western & English site. We do not control these cookies. The use of advertising cookies sent by third-party servers is standard in the Internet industry.
Links to Other Web Sites or Internet Forums
Whenever you give out personal information online to other users, such as through message boards or chat rooms, such information can be collected and used by people you do not know. Western & English cannot guarantee the security of any information you disclose online and you do so at your own risk.
Children and Personal Use of the Site
Western & English encourages parents and guardians to spend time with their children online, and to become familiar with the web sites their children visit. The Western & English site is designed solely for users who are over the age of 18.
