The Way We Use Information:
We use the information you provide about yourself when placing an order to complete the order. It is necessary to furnish this information to the publisher in order to quickly fulfill your order, provide you with discounted subscription rates and qualify you for free magazine subscription offers. Because your information is shared with the publisher, the information is governed by the privacy policies of the recipients of the information. We also use the information to provide you with information about magazine subscriptions and other products and services.
PAID CONSUMER MAGAZINES: Magazines.com does not share email addresses with other parties, including the publishers. Magazines.com does not provide any other personal information to any other businesses (besides the publisher of the magazine to which you've subscribed).
FREE TRADE MAGAZINES: Magazines.com does not share your email address with any other parties, besides the publisher who requires an email address as part of the qualification process. Occasionally, we may provide personally identifiable information, voluntarily provided on free trade magazine qualification forms, to third parties who provide products and services that Magazines.com believes readers may be interested in purchasing, obtaining, or learning more about. To request that your information not be shared with third parties, please contact us.
We do use tracking software to observe user traffic patterns throughout our site. But we do not correlate this information with data about individual users. Tracking information is used only to determine which areas of our site users like and don't like, and how well each page performs on behalf of our guests. This helps us continue to build a better service for you. We also monitor search terms and titles entered at our site as a means of knowing what interests our customers. But we don't track which terms a particular user enters.
When you place orders, we provide the use of a secure server. The secure server software (SSL) encrypts all information you enter before it is sent to us. And all customer data we receive is protected against unauthorized access. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.
Fair Credit Billing Act
We guarantee that every online transaction you make will be 100% safe. This means you pay nothing if unauthorized charges are made to your card as a result of shopping at our online store. Under the Fair Credit Billing Act, your bank cannot hold you liable for more than $50.00 of fraudulent charges. If your bank does hold you liable for any of this $50.00, we will cover the entire liability for you, up to the full $50.00. We will only cover this liability if the unauthorized use of your credit card resulted through no fault of your own from purchases made while using the secure server. In the event of unauthorized use of your credit card, you must notify your credit card provider in accordance with its reporting rules and procedures.
