COLLECTION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION AND PAYMENT INFORMATION
Locale Magazine may collect your personal information through one or more of the following methods:
- Personal Information You Provide. Locale Magazine may collect personal information when you provide personal information to our employees, representatives, or third party affiliates; register on our website; attend our events and programs; register for our sweepstakes or contests; sign up for our magazine; contact us about a request to make contact; or email, call, or otherwise communicate with us. No personal information is gathered about you when you visit our website, unless you voluntarily provide information to us. For example, if you contact us regarding our magazine, we may request that you provide personal information that will enable us to respond to your inquiry. If you do not provide such information, we may not be able to respond to your inquiry, or the information we provide may be limited. If you indicate to us that you have interest(s) in certain areas, we may send you communications regarding those interests. If you do not indicate any specific areas of interest, we may contact you with an additional opportunity to register for such communications.

When you purchase our magazine or register for our events, transactional information such as the date of your purchase or registration, type of event, or other event registration details and your user information may be collected automatically.

We treat all such automatically collected information as personal information if we combine it with or link it to other information that may identify you.

DISCLOSURE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

We may utilize the services of third parties to verify customer data, such as mailing addresses or to supplement other information we have collected. We may also contract with third parties to host a website, retain customer data, conduct market research, or send you information regarding our activities, or those of other companies with whom we conduct activities.
- Legal Process. We may disclose your personal information to legal or government regulatory authorities in response to their requests for such information or to assist in investigations of theft, fraud, or abuse. We may also disclose your personal information to third parties in connection with claims, disputes, or litigation, or if we determine its disclosure is necessary in an emergency. This may include the disclosure of IP addresses, mobile device identifiers, or other information collected by us, with or without notice to you.

INFORMATION PERTAINING TO CHILDREN
Locale Magazine is the only operator of its website, and its contact information is listed in the “How to Contact Us” section below. Locale Magazine does not knowingly or intentionally collect personal information from children under the age of 13, and has taken steps to avoid doing so through its website. Accordingly, Locale Magazine does not enable children to make their personal information publicly available, knowingly or intentionally use their information in any manner, or knowingly or intentionally disclose their information to anyone. If a child under the age of 13 has or may have provided personal information to Locale Magazine, a parent or guardian may inform us of that fact by contacting us using one of the methods listed in the “How to Contact Us” section below, and we will then review our records and delete any such information from our database. If you are under the age of 13, do not provide us with any personal information either directly or indirectly (e.g., by posting personal information on our website). Any personal information that we receive from a person whom we believe is under the age of 13 will be deleted.
ACCESS TO AND RETENTION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
Locale Magazine does not maintain all of your personal information in a form that you can access or update, and some items may not be changed, unless required by applicable law. Accordingly, we will determine and may limit what may be accessed and how, subject to applicable law, and we may keep a record of changes (including deletions) and disclose them for compliance or other lawful purposes. If there is any of your personal information that you would like to view or us to change or delete, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will do our best to accommodate you. We keep your personal information for only as long as necessary for the fulfillment of the purposes for which it is collected, and we reserve the right to retain it to the full extent not prohibited by law.
SECURITY OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
Locale Magazine uses various physical, electronic, and procedural measures to protect your personal information from unauthorized disclosure or misuse. Only authorized employees of Locale Magazine have access to our databases where your personal information is stored. We employ Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), HTTP Secure (HTTPS) technology, Jetpack, and other security measures to encrypt and securely transfer sensitive personal information you input during transmission. However, because no data security systems are completely secure, we do not warrant that any personal information that you provide to us will be secure or safe from unauthorized access. If you provide any personal information to us, you do so at your own risk. We also use certain third party services for storage and processing of personal information. You may contact our webmaster at email@example.com for more information or to file a complaint.
