Acquire Media Ventures Inc. Privacy Policy

INTRODUCTION:

This Privacy Policy describes how Acquire Media Ventures Inc. (“Acquire Media,” “us” or “we”), suppliers of NewsEdge, NewsEdge Newscast and NewsEdge Mobile will collect and use your personally identifiable information (“PII”) as well as data that can, under certain circumstances, indirectly lead to PII (“Related Data”).

This Policy applies to PII and Related Data received by us from users when they visit, register or subscribe to NewsEdge, NewsEdge Newscast and NewsEdge Mobile and related services, apps or sites that link to this Privacy Policy.

From time to time Acquire Media may revise this Privacy Policy. If we make revisions that change the way we collect or use your PII or Related Data, those changes will be posted in this Privacy Policy and the effective date will be noted at the beginning of the Policy. Therefore, you should review the policy periodically so that you are up to date on Acquire Media’s most current policies and practices. If we make material changes to our practices regarding use of your PII or Related Data, your PII and Related Data will continue to be governed by the Privacy Policy under which it was subject prior to those changes, unless you have been provided notice of, and have not objected to, the changes.

INFORMATION WE COLLECT:

When you subscribe to our products or services, we collect PII and Related Information from you. We also may collect PII and Related Information from you when you contact us about your subscriptions or participate in activities like: creating a community profile or rating, tagging or commenting on articles. In addition, when you visit our websites, we automatically collect IP addresses and website usage information from you. We do not, however, knowingly collect PII from children under the age of thirteen.

We also may collect PII from consumers in manual format or off-line, for example via a subscription form. Providing detailed notice in those situations often proves impractical, so consumers will instead be provided with a short notice that describes how to obtain the full text of this Privacy Policy and other relevant information from us.

Acquire Media uses cookies (small bits of information placed on the hard drive of your computer) to, among other things, facilitate our login processes, allow you to personalize and store your settings, collect usage information, determine our total audience size and traffic, and help us improve our websites by measuring which areas are of greatest interest to users. You can set the browser on your computer to warn you each time a cookie is being sent, block third party cookies or block all cookies. However, by blocking all cookies you may not have access to certain features on our websites.

We also use web beacons (invisible images often referred to as pixel tags or clear GIFs) on our websites in order to recognize users and assess traffic patterns. In addition, we include web beacons and cookies in our email messages, including newsletters, in order to count how many email messages have been opened.

When you view an ad for our products or services on other websites, third-party advertising companies may place or recognize a unique cookie on your browser. We and the advertising companies may also use web beacons to note which pages you visit after viewing our ads.

We may use cookies and similar tools to relate your use of our websites to PII obtained from you or a reputable third party (for example, if you’ve asked us to send you information about our upcoming products or promotions, PII may allow us to limit the materials we send you to items we think you will find interesting based on your prior online activities and preferences).

HOW WE USE INFORMATION:

We may use information we gather, including PII and Related Data, in the following ways:

  • For the purposes for which you specifically provided it including, without limitation, to enable us to process and fulfill your subscription, access, or other requests.

We may combine the information that we collect from you with information that you provide to us in connection with your use of other Acquire Media products, services and websites, or information we collect from third parties.
