SHEfinds requires your e-mail address when you subscribe to our newsletters, when you sign up for sweepstakes, and when you take advantage of other services our website offers. To provide you with the best possible service, we also require some basic personal information when you sign up. Those items are marked with an asterisk (*). Furthermore, we ask for some optional information on our sign-up page and in periodic opt-in surveys. We use this basic and optional information, to further tailor our content to your interests. Upon request, we will provide you with the information that we maintain about you.
We may use aggregate data such as income, age and geography to further customize our content and enhance our services. We may share this information with advertisers and the media. Likewise, we may share this information with another company in the event that we merge, are acquired or participate in a joint venture with another company, or if we conclude that we are required by law to share it. All aggregate data will be shared without any personally identifiable information about our individual subscribers.
Web Site Usage Information
We and our partners also may make use of pixel tags which also collect traffic information regarding the behavior and usage patterns of users of our site. Pixel tags allow us, or a third party who provides the pixel tag, to set, read, and modify cookies on, and to transfer other data to, the browser used to view the Web page or other document. Pixel tags may also be used to obtain information about the computer being used to view that Web page or other document, including the sites the users of that computer visit.. The entity that provides the tag can view the IP address of the computer that the tag is sent to, the time it was sent, the user’s operating system and browser type, and similar information. Our partners may use this information to display advertisements and other content that targeted to you. We may also use other technologies that permit data gathering.
You may chose not to accept a pixel tag by taking one of the following three actions:
First, you can opt-out using our partner Blue Kai’s opt-out process, which is explained here http://www.bluekai.com/optout.html.
Second, you can also opt-out by using the NAI’s opt-out tool, which is explained here http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp
These two options require you to accept cookies, and they will only function if your browser is set to accept third-party cookies. If you delete an opt-out cookie from a browser’s cookie files, the pixel tag will be installed until an opt-out cookie is reset on that browser.
The third way to block pixel tags is to block third-party cookies on your browser. If you block third-party cookies from being set on your browser, you may not be able to enjoy some features or functionality of, and you may see the same content and advertisements repeatedly on, some Web sites.
To support our efforts we sell sponsorships of SHEfinds mailings and on the blog to advertisers who we think you’d like to know about. Collection, use, disclosure and security of information collected by advertisers are subject to the privacy policies of those advertisers.
From time to time, we may use the services of third-party companies to help facilitate our business activities. These include affiliate or incentive program providers, customer service organizations, e-mail and postal mail brokers, and marketing service providers. These companies are subject to confidentiality agreements with us and are prohibited from using the information we provide for any reason except to perform the functions that we have outlined for them.
Opt-out / Unsubscribe
If we ever send you an email that you did not expressly request, we will provide you with an email address by which you may request to receive no future notices.
We do not intentionally collect any information from children.
