Protecting the privacy of young children is especially important. For that reason, Newsbound does not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 13 or knowingly allow such persons to register as users in compliance with various federal and state regulations, including the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA).
It is important for you to understand this law; we encourage you to read more about COPPA at http://www.business.ftc.gov/privacy-and-security/childrens-privacy.
If you are under 13, please do not send any information about yourself to us, including your name, address, telephone number or email address. No one under age 13 is allowed to provide any personal information to or on Newsbound. In the event that we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under age 13 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that we might have any information from or about a child under 13, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You may choose to interact with Newsbound or the Site in ways that require Newsbound to gather personally identifying information. The amount and type of information that Newsbound gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, if you sign up and subscribe to our email list, we ask that you provide your email address.
In each case, Newsbound collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Newsbound or the Site. Newsbound does not disclose personally identifying information other than as described below. Visitors can always refuse to supply personally identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain Site-related activities.
Newsbound may collect non-personally identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site and the date and time of each visitor request. Newsbound’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifiable information is to better understand how Newsbound’s visitors use its Site. From time to time, Newsbound may share non-personally identifiable information with others in the aggregate, e.g., reports on trends in the usage of its Site, but this information does not identify any individual Users.
Newsbound also collects potentially personally identifiable information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in Users. Newsbound only discloses logged in User IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally identifying information as described below.
The Site may use web tracking technologies, such as cookies, in order to recognize visitors to the Newsbound website and to analyze general User traffic patterns, and we collect data generated by use of such technologies. Some of this data may include data, such as IP address data, that is unique to you.
Newsbound may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its Site, through services such as Chartbeat, Google Analytics and MixPanel.
Newsbound does not sell email lists or other information to third parties.
Newsbound discloses potentially personally identifying and personally identifiable information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Newsbound’s behalf or to provide services available at via the Site or Newsbound’s services offered to clients, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using the Site, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Newsbound will not rent or sell potentially personally identifying and personally identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Newsbound discloses potentially personally identifying and personally identifiable information only when Newsbound believes it is required to do so by law, or when Newsbound believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Newsbound, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of the Site and have supplied your email address, Newsbound may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Newsbound and the Site.
Newsbound recognizes the importance of safeguarding the confidentiality of your information. Accordingly, we employ reasonable measures designed to protect your information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. However, no data transmission over the Internet or other network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect information transmitted on or through the Site, we cannot and do not guarantee the security of any information you transmit on or through the Site and you do so at your own risk.
From time to time, we may establish a business relationship with other businesses that we believe to be trustworthy and who have confirmed that their privacy practices are consistent with ours ("Service Providers"). For example, we may contract with Service Providers to provide certain services, such as hosting and maintenance, data storage and management and marketing and promotions. We only provide our Service Providers with the information necessary for them to perform these services on our behalf. Each Service Provider must agree to use reasonable security procedures and practices, appropriate to the nature of the information involved, in order to protect your information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. Service Providers are prohibited from using such information other than as specified by Newsbound.
Notwithstanding the above, Newsbound may in any event use Personal Information and other information collected through the Site to the extent required by law or legal process, or if in Newsbound’s reasonable discretion use is necessary to protect Newsbound’s legal rights or to protect third parties.
You may remove yourself from our email list at anytime. Please unsubscribe or contact us to remove you. We are committed to allowing you the right to remove your personally identifiable information from our Site.
