1. The Information We Collect and Use
We may collect and use certain information and data when you visit the Website.
A. Non-Personally Identifiable Information
When you visit the Website, we may collect certain data that does not tell us specifically who you are. This is “Non-Personally Identifiable Information.” It includes things like your Internet Protocol (IP) address, browser type, and the last domain you visited before coming to the Website or the domain you go to when you leave. It also includes various statistical data regarding your use of the Website such as which pages you visit, how long you stay on them, and what you click.
We collect some Non-Personally Identifiable Information through “cookies.” Cookies are small text files that we place on your computer. They allow us to do things like recognize repeat users, track usage behavior, customize the content you see, and compile aggregate data that will allow content improvements and targeted advertising. There is a simple procedure in most browsers that allows you to deny or accept cookies. You should note that cookies may be necessary to provide you with certain features on the Website.
We use Non-Personally Identifiable Information to help us generally administer and improve the Website – for example, by determining which parts of the Website receive the most visitors or clicks.
B. Personally Identifiable Information
We also may collect information that can be used to identify you (“Personally Identifiable Information”). This might include your name, email address, mailing address, telephone number or credit card number. We only collect Personally Identifiable Information when you specifically provide it to us. This might happen, for example, when you register for a user account, log on with your user name and password, order a publication or service, participate in a promotional offer or submit content to the Website.
We may use Personally Identifiable Information to offer you products and services from Marquis, to enhance your experience at the Website, and, if applicable, to enhance your experience as a subscriber to Marquis' products and services.
We may employ other people or firms (“Outside Contractors”) to provide services and products, such as credit card processing, fraud screening, order fulfillment and shipment, and website hosting or development. Outside Contractors may sometimes have access to Personally Identifiable Information to the extent necessary to do their work for us.
We require Outside Contractors to protect the privacy of your Personally Identifiable Information. We also require them not to use or disclose your Personally Identifiable Information for any purpose other than providing us with products or services for which we contracted.
We may disclose your Personally Identifiable Information to third parties in connection with a corporate transaction where all or a portion of our business (including our associated customer lists) is sold or transferred. We also may disclose your Personally Identifiable Information if disclosure is required by law or as part of a lawsuit or government investigation or proceeding.
2. Data Security
Marquis cannot ensure or warrant the security and privacy of any information you transmit to us. We attempt to follow policies and procedures that are reasonably calculated to protect against unauthorized access to your Personally Identifiable Information. But we can make no guarantees or promises in this regard, and you provide information to us at your own risk.
