At Metro Guide Publishing we take your right to privacy very seriously.
Personally identifying information is information that can be used to identify who you are such as: name, mailing address, email address. To enter certain areas of the site, you will be required to register and provide information about yourself. This information is for the purposes of Halifax Magazine and helps us to tailor the site to best meet the needs of our audience. The personal information that we retain is what is provided by you voluntarily. We use it to send you information about Metro Guide Publishing and its products or to correspond with you regarding your subscription. If you are a subscriber to one of our publications we need this information to be able to deliver you our product(s) and service your subscription. If you are an attendee to one of our events, we need this information for billing purposes.
By completing a form on this Web site, you will be able to receive email correspondence from Metro Guide Publishing. These emails may include information on upcoming events or special offers for subscribers. If you do not wish to receive email correspondence please email firstname.lastname@example.org and ask to be removed from our email list. Every email that we send to you will include an “opt-out” from receiving future email correspondence.
Aggregate information is information that cannot identify you personally. We collect information on our subscribers that may be used in summary reports presented to our advertisers. This information helps them to better understand our audience and provide advertisements that are more likely to be of interest to you and your organization.
Our intention is always to gather information that will help us serve you better and never to gather information without your knowledge.
As with most Web sites, we do log web visits. This information, however, does not have a link to you personally. These logs help us understand the needs of our audience and the areas of our site that you do or do not find useful. When you simply browse our site, no personal information is being collected. We may disclose this non-personal information to third parties such as sponsors, clients or advertisers.
We may use “cookies” to identify you as a return visitor. A cookie is a piece of data that a Web site can send to your browser, which may then store the cookie on your hard drive. So, when you come back to visit us again, we can tailor information to suit your individual preferences. The goal is to save you time and provide you with a more meaningful visit and to measure Web site activity. Cookies do not contain any personally identifying information. Browsers such as Netscape allow you to disable cookies collection if you wish, or inform you when a cookie is being stored on your hard drive.
If you submit your name through a form on our Web site to request information from an advertiser or third party, Metro Guide Publishing is not responsible for any marketing or other use of your name by that third party.
