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 as an advertiser or place orders for advertising.
Like most websites, this Site 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
We will use your information only as permitted by law. Aggregated Information (information that does not personally identify you) may be used in many ways. As one example, we may combine information about your usage patterns with similar information obtained from other users to learn which pages are visited most or what features are most attractive. Aggregated Information may occasionally be shared with our advertisers and business partners, but cannot be used to contact you individually.
We will share your registration information and other Personally Identifiable Information with the online and print newspaper publications in which you have ordered advertising through this Site. Such information will not be affected by any privacy preferences you may have already communicated to those publications.
Personally Identifiable Information collected by this Site may also be used for other purposes including but not limited to site administration and troubleshooting. Certain third parties who provide technical support for the operation of our site (our Web hosting service and our newsletter provider, for example) may access such information.
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 may also 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.
Your choice to opt out
The quality news and information on other Tribune Publishing Company sites is supported by advertising revenue, and a controlled program of e-mail marketing is an important element of Tribune Publishing Companyï¿½s online publishing business. Currently, we do not share your Personally Identifiable Information (including e-mail address) with third party advertisers. We will not share your Personally Identifiable Information with them in the future without your permission. This means that we will inform you in advance of any plan to share email addresses with third party advertisers, and give you the opportunity to opt out.
Affiliated sites, linked sites and advertisements
We expect our partners, advertisers and third-party affiliates to respect the privacy of our users. However, third parties, including our business partners, advertisers, affiliates and other content providers accessible through our Site, may have their own privacy and data collection policies and practices. For example, during your visits to our Site you may link to, or view as part of a frame on a Site page, certain content that is actually created or hosted by a third party. Also, through a page on the Site you may be introduced to, or be able to access, information, websites, advertisements, features, contests or sweepstakes offered by other parties. We are not responsible for the actions or policies of such third parties. You should check the applicable privacy policies of those third parties when providing information on a feature or page operated by a third party.
Please be careful and responsible whenever you are online. Should you choose to voluntarily disclose Personally Identifiable Information on this Site, such as in advertising you purchase, that information can be viewed publicly and can be collected and used by third parties without our knowledge and may result in unsolicited messages from other individuals or third parties. Such activities are beyond the control of Tribune Publishing Company and this policy.
We do not knowingly collect or solicit Personally Identifiable Information from or about children under 13 except as permitted by law. If we discover we have received any information from a child under 13 in violation of this policy, we will delete that information immediately. If you believe Tribune Publishing Company improperly has any information from or about anyone under 13, please contact us at the address listed below.
