This privacy statement covers all of the E21MEDIA sites. Please read this statement carefully before using or proceeding to access E21MEDIA Sites. Your use of E21MEDIA Sites indicates your agreement to abide by the Terms in effect.
E21MEDIA is the sole owner of the information collected on the E21MEDIA Sites. E21MEDIA may collect information from our users at several different points on the E21MEDIA Sites.
In order to enhance their use of the E21MEDIA Sites, users can choose to leave comments on particular articles of interest. Commenters may register anonymously. However, if a third party complains that a comment libels them, then we will make reasonable efforts to contact the commenter and alert them to the situation. If we are required to by law to disclose commenters’ contact information, we will attempt to contact commenters to give them the opportunity to respond to such requests.
E21MEDIA may launch a mailing list for some or all of the E21MEDIA Sites, in order to provide subscribers with relevant information - breaking news, or weekly or daily round-ups, for example. In order to sign up to receive regular emails from a site's mailing list, users must submit information including a valid email address and demographic information such as location and interests. This information will be used in aggregate form only in order to assess general user interest in various internal and third party products and services, and your personal and contact information will not be passed to any other organization.
Users who choose to sign up for a mailing list will receive regular emails from the site. Most of the time, these will be content from the site in question, but we may occasionally send out an email from a third party sponsor. This will be infrequent, and does not represent an endorsement by E21MEDIA of any products advertised therein. It will clearly be marked as advertising: please check it out, as we hope you will feel that it is relevant to you. Since editorial independence is critical to us, you can be sure that we will never send out a sponsored email in the guise of a glowing product review. If you do not wish to receive emails from third party advertisers, please do not sign up for the mailing list.
Discussion Group and Cookies
In order to further enhance the user experience, E21MEDIA runs a commenting service on some or all of the E21MEDIA Sites where users can discuss common topics of interest. Users have the option of signing up for this service, and to do so must submit information including a valid email address. E21MEDIA uses this information to screen out users who leave comments prohibited by our terms and conditions of use and to pick out topics of interest to discussion board users. E21MEDIA will not pass this information to any other organization except in aggregate form.
By setting a cookie on a E21MEDIA Site, users will not have to log in a password more than once, thereby saving time while on the site’s discussion board. We store a cookie on each user's machine that contains a username and encrypted password. You can configure your browser to accept all cookies, reject all cookies, or notify you when a cookie is set. If you reject all cookies, you will not be able to use E21MEDIA products or services that require you to "sign in," and you may not be able to take full advantage of all offerings. However, not all E21MEDIA services require that you accept cookies.
