What information does Red7Media collect and how is it used?
Our sites collect information volunteered by you in several areas, including newsletter sign up pages, site registrations, and web site surveys. The information we request for you to participate in these features may include personally identifiable information such as name, address, telephone and fax numbers, and email address, as well as "demographic" information such as your hobbies or personal preferences. We will tell you at the time we collect information whether the information requested is necessary for you to participate in a particular feature.
With whom does Red7Media share your information?
Red7Media shares your information with its affiliates and business partners, including agents such as third party mail processing facilities. We may employ contractors to help with our operations. Some or all of these contractors may access the databases of user information. These contractors are and will be subject to confidentiality agreements that restrict their use and disclosure of all information they obtain through their relationship with Red7Media. When sharing your information with these third parties, Red7Media requires that the third parties follow practices substantially similar to those of Red7Media, and that your information not be further shared with any other third parties. Red7Media will also share your information if required by law to do so, to comply with applicable laws or valid legal process, or to protect the rights or property of Red7Media. Additionally, if part or some of our assets are purchased by a third party, Red7Media will share your information with the purchaser of all or part of our assets.
If you use our "tell a friend" service to email one of our articles, reports or product descriptions to a friend or colleague, Red7Media will automatically send this person a one-time email, attaching to the email the content you wished for your friend to receive. Your email address will appear on the "From" line of this email, thereby disclosing this information to whoever opens and reads the email. The email address of you or your friend or colleague will not be stored in our databases based on this service.
Red7Media may provide users with the opportunity to request additional information from product manufacturers in our online directory or from our advertisers. If you specifically request information from a manufacturer or from one of our advertisers, your contact information will be given to that manufacturer or advertiser, to allow them to decide the best way to fulfill your request.
What options do you have about how Red7Media uses or shares your information?
If you no longer wish for us to share your mailing address or other contact information with our sponsors or other third parties in whose products or services we believe you may be interested, please send us an email at email@example.com. For us to be able to locate your record, your email must include your name, mailing address, email address, and must identify the Red7Media product, event, or service for which you are registered. Your request will be processed within 10 days, and we will no longer share your contact information with third parties. Please note that we will not be able to stop third parties from sending you information about their products or services if your information was shared with them before we received your request.
Regarding email specifically, you have the opportunity to elect to stop receiving advertising messages from Red7Media about our products or services each time you receive such a communication from us. To unsubscribe from such advertising email messages, please follow the directions included in that email message. Your request will be processed within 10 days. Please note that during that time, you may continue to receive email messages from Red7Media about its products or services. Additionally, regardless of whether you have unsubscribed from receiving advertising and promotional material from Red7Media, you will continue to receive transactional information from us, such as information relating to your account or payment or bill information.
If you receive HW Offers, broadcast email messages we send about third party manufacturers in whose products or services we believe you may be interested, and no longer wish to receive such messages, you can do so by following the directions included in the HW Offer you receive.
What Kind of Security Measures Does Red7Media Use?
Information you provide to us is stored on secure database servers. Any profile pages that display your personal data is password-protected. We recommend that you do not share your passwords with anyone. Red7Media will never ask you for your password in an unsolicited phone call or in an unsolicited email. Also, if you are using a computer that others have access to, such as one in a computer lab, Internet cafe or public library, always remember to log out and close your browser window when leaving our site.
Links to non-Red7Media web sites
Many of our web sites contain links to web sites owned and operated by unaffiliated third parties. These links are provided as a service to you, and do not constitute Red7Media's endorsement or support of the third party web sites. The third parties who operate these sites have their own information collection and use practices, and Red7Media is not responsible for either the privacy practices or the content of these sites. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of each site before providing your personal information, and to contact the providers directly if you have any questions about their privacy policies.
