What information do we collect?
M&E collects information from you when you register on our site, subscribe to our newsletter, enter a sweepstakes or contest, make a purchase, or respond to a survey—generally with your specific knowledge and consent. As appropriate, you may be asked to enter your name, phone number, or e-mail address.
Our servers may also automatically collect information about your computer when you visit the website, including without limitation the type of browser software you use, the operating system you are running, the website that referred you, and your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address. Your IP address is usually associated with the place from which you enter the Internet, like your Internet Service Provider, your company or your university.
What do we use your information for?
M&E uses personally identifying information you supply through the website to provide you with the service you request. For example, when you subscribe to any of our publications, we may use your email address to send you a confirmation notice and your mailing address to send you the publication.
The information gathered helps us to better respond to your individual needs, processing transactions, or to administer a contest, promotion, survey, or other site features that you participate in with specific knowledge and consent.
Unless otherwise stated, M&E may sell or share personally identifying information with our trusted affiliates who we think can offer you services and products of interest to you. If you do not wish to have your personally identifying information shared, write to us at the street address set forth at the end of the document. If you do not wish to receive future commercial communications from us after having subscribed, simply follow the unsubscribe instructions contained within the email.
In addition, information we collect about your computer may be used for any lawful business purpose, including without limitation to help diagnose problems with our servers, to gather broad demographic information, and to otherwise administer our website.
In addition, as our business changes, we may buy or sell various assets. In the event all or a portion of the assets owned or controlled by M&E, its parent or any subsidiary or affiliated entity are sold, assigned, transferred or acquired by another company, the information from and/or about our Website users may be among the transferred assets.
How do we protect your information?
We implement a variety of security measures to attempt to maintain the safety of your personal information when you enter, submit, or access your personal information. However, because no data transmission over the Internet is completely secure, and no system of physical or electronic security is impenetrable, M&E cannot guarantee the security of the information you send to us or the security of our servers or databases, and by using the website, you agree to assume all risk in connection with the information sent to us or collected by us when you use the website.
