What are Cookies?
A cookie is a small data text file that a website sends to your browser, which is stored on your system. The Sites can only access the information from a cookie sent by the Sites. We cannot access cookies sent by other web sites or the information contained therein. Additionally, we cannot learn your e-mail address or any other information about you through the use of a cookie. The only way we would learn such information is if you specifically and voluntarily submit that information to us, for example, through a registration system. NOTE: Your browser MUST accept cookies from our site in order for registered, paid subscribers to access subscriber-only content.
What benefits do I receive from cookies?
The Sites log IP addresses, or the location of your computer on the Internet, for systems administration and troubleshooting purposes and to determine site usage. Your IP address does not contain personal information about you.
Use of Personal Information
Times/Review Newspapers also may disclose aggregated user statistics in order to describe our services to potential advertisers, partners, other third parties, our affiliate companies, and for other lawful purposes.
As part of your experience on our Sites, you may receive communications from us related to products and services that might interest you. While we believe these services will enhance your experience at our Sites, you will at all times be able to opt out from receiving these communications, either by specifically opting out of these services or by deleting your profile from our database.
We may have today, and will in the future have, arrangements with third-party service providers, such as credit card processors, shipping companies and fulfillment services. When you sign up for a service we offer on the Sites, we may be required to share Personal Information with that service provider in order to provide the service. These third-party providers are required to comply with this policy and protect your information in the same way we do. They are not permitted to retain or use Personal Information for any purpose unrelated to providing the service.
We reserve the right to disclose Personal Information when needed to comply with the law or a legal process, cooperate with investigations of purported unlawful activities, or to identify persons violating the law.
