Information we collect
Portions of our websites require visitors to provide personally identifiable information that may include your name, age, address, e-mail address or credit-card number. We do not, however, knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13.
We automatically collect IP addresses and web site usage information from you when you visit our site. This information helps us evaluate how our visitors use and navigate our websites on an aggregate basis, including the number and frequency of visitors to each web page, the length of their visits, their browser type and their operating systems. Your IP address is not linked to personally identifiable information but is used to gather broad demographic information. This information helps us tailor and improve your experience on the websites.
On some pages, you can submit information about yourself, other people or events. None of this information is mandatory, but the more details you provide, the better the story will be about your event.
In some cases, we may ask you for a telephone number or e-mail address so that we can verify the information you submitted or contact you if we have questions. We will not publish such telephone numbers or e-mail addresses unless they are also the public contact information for your event.
Certain forms and features of Western States Publishers, Inc. websites may require voluntary registration. These forms or features require you to give us personally identifiable information, which may include contact information (like your name and e-mail address) and unique identifiers. If you so signify beforehand, we may use your contact information from the registration form to send you information about our company and promotional material from some of our partners. Unique identifiers are collected only for use as account numbers in our record system. We do not disclose any unique identifiers to any third parties.
