publications are strongly committed to protecting your privacy and
providing a safe online experience for all of our users and subscribers
while offering the highest quality publications and services to them.

Conditions of Use, and contact us if you have any questions, but
offer this short summary to highlight key points.

one or more of our business or units or operating functions.
- We employ reasonable procedures to protect the personal information
you send to us. Credit card and other sensitive information are
encrypted during transmission to and from our sites. However, we
provide no guarantees that your data will always be secure.
may offer links to or from websites we control to other sites within the
InterMedia family as well as to sites operated by third parties. We
offer links to third party sites so that you can conveniently visit our
vendors and advertisers or locate other content likely to be of
interest. We are not responsible for the content, practices or
policies of sites operated by third parties and urge you to inquire about
them before providing any personally-identifiable information.

WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT ABOUT YOU?
Generally, you can visit our websites, read articles and other materials,
and check on offerings without giving us any "personal information" (defined
below). So that we can provide our users and subscribers with the most
efficient and enhanced personalized service, we request information about
you in certain circumstances, and collect certain information
automatically. We also use contact lists and other information we may
obtain from third parties. For the convenience of our customers and
better to serve you, a customer account includes all the collected personal
information we may have, but you can update or correct your contact
information or change your preferences about receiving offers and
information from us or third parties at any time.
By "personal information" we mean information that identifies you
individually, such as names, mailing addresses, and/or email addresses.
This term does not include other kinds of electronic information
which theoretically could be used to identify you, such as the IP address
of your computer (which, if combined with the time of access and
information from your internet service provider, could be used to identify
you by name). Such other electronic information also includes
browser type, domain name, the referring website address, etc. We
use this automatically collected electronic information to facilitate
your online experience at our websites.
We collect from you personal information when you subscribe to one of
our magazines, place an order (see the section below for more information
on subscriptions and orders), or register at one of our websites.
Website visitors may register to receive our email services, respond
to a survey, or enter online contests and sweepstakes; we may offer
offline contests and sweepstakes as well. Registration may be
required to participate in message boards, bulletin boards, or chat rooms
at our websites or to take advantage of special offers.
Sometimes registration can be accomplished by submitting only a user
name and password, but some of our offerings require submission of
additional information. The information we collect may include your
email address, name, address, phone number, age, gender, hobbies, family
information, and similar demographic information or information related to
your interests. For example, our automotive publications and
websites may ask about the type of car you drive. Some of our sites may
offer you the opportunity to receive offers directly from third parties,
or to match you directly with a trusted fulfillment partner, such as an
automobile dealer or bank. In the latter case, in addition to
contact information and other details, we will ask you to provide certain
financial and credit-related information to facilitate a response from our
fulfillment partners. Our online registration forms will indicate
what information is required and what information (if any) is optional.
Of course, you may decline to provide even "required" information,
but will then be unable to participate in those website activities.
Subscriptions and Orders
If you wish to subscribe to one of our publications or place an order
for products or services, you must generally establish a credit card
account with us or our vendors. In addition to the customary
information needed to fill your order (full name, email address, physical
address, ship-to name and address, gift information, etc.), subscriptions
and orders necessitate collection of your credit card number, credit card
expiration date, and the credit card security code. Electronic order
acknowledgments are sent when an subscription or order is placed online.
Most of our websites allow visitors to subscribe to our
publications online, and some sites also offer areas where you may
purchase items online. We may offer online and offline subscribers a
"bill me" option if they do not wish to use a credit card, but
visitors should check specific online stores to see if other such
alternative payment options are offered.
We conduct market research in an effort to improve our publications and
websites and may purchase lists of potential subscribers or customers from
third parties. Those lists may include information on current
subscribers or customers. This information is included in our
database. That helps us, for example, minimize multiple mailings and
emailings, and provide information tailored to your interests.
WHAT DO WE DO WITH COLLECTED INFORMATION?
We use information you provide to fulfill your requests, improve our
publications, products and services, and operate our business. For
example, we use personal information so that we may display or send
custom, personalized content to our website visitors, and to send
newsletters, mail, emails, features, promotional material, surveys and
other updates, information or offers to our users and subscribers. A
user may, at any time, opt out of receiving promotional offers by mail,
telephone or email. We also use collected information to evaluate
and administer our products and services, fulfill customer requests (e.g.,
subscription and other orders), respond to any problems that may arise
(e.g., magazine delivery failures, difficulties in navigating our sites or
accessing certain features), gauge user trends to determine what products
and services are most popular with users, and to put you in touch with
trusted fulfillment partners who can provide services that we cannot.
In some parts of our websites we allow users to send articles or links
by email to other parties who may be interested in them. We do not
retain any email addresses (unless you are a member who already has
voluntarily provided your email address) of either the sender or recipient
of such articles or links after they are sent, and do not share "send
a friend" email addresses with third parties.
We may produce reports for advertisers, sponsors and vendors containing
anonymous, aggregate information about our users and subscribers, such as
demographic, age and online usage information. This allows us to
provide content and offers that are most relevant to our subscribers and
users, and to work more closely with advertisers.
HOW DO WE SHARE PERSONAL INFORMATION?
Personal information is available to InterMedia, including its brands and
affiliates, and its or their technical and fulfillment agents and
consultants who make this website and our publications, products and
services available to you. Anonymous information is available to our
advertisers, sponsors and promotional and business partners. We share
your personal information with third parties only as described below.
InterMedia and Its Agents.
InterMedia may use both anonymous, aggregate demographic data and any
personal information you provide for internal marketing or other business
purposes, including sending you notices of subscription renewal deadlines,
new publications, services or products we offer likely to be of interest,
and filling subscription and other orders. To facilitate subscriptions
and orders, InterMedia will cache your order information, and create an
authorization with a merchant account (e.g., your credit card company).
There are many companies who may be required to assist InterMedia in
making its publications, products and web sites available to you. Web
host firms, technical and database consultants, advertising agencies, and
fulfillment firms, including firms assisting us in offering contests and
promotions, may have access to personally identifiable information in the
course of making our products and services available. All companies
working with InterMedia must comply with our information collection, use and
disclosure policies, and are not permitted to sell your information to third
parties or to use it except as authorized by us and you, or as permitted or
required by law.
Some of our sites offer opportunities to make purchases online from
special participating vendors. On sites with online purchase
opportunities for products and merchandise, we will also give participating
manufacturers, retailers, wholesalers or distributors ordering information
and merchant bank authorization information. Any time you order from a
participating vendor, that vendor will automatically have all the
information related to the order. Participating vendors may use that
information to advise you directly of other products and offerings that they
provide. InterMedia is not responsible for their privacy policies, and
urges you to inquire about their information practices. In addition,
vendors may receive the same anonymous, aggregate data that our advertisers
Credit Card Companies. As
in any transaction, your credit card company will have all relevant
information about the name of the vendor, item(s) purchased, and date and
total cost. InterMedia will not otherwise provide any personal data to
your credit card company.
Advertisers, Sponsors and Promotional and
Business Partners. We share anonymous, aggregate demographic
information (such as gender, age, income, hobbies, interests, etc.), and
anonymous information obtained from cookies and similar technologies, with
our advertisers, sponsors, promotional and business partners, and with
participating vendors at sites offering online sales opportunities. No
personally identifiable information is disclosed to any of these third
parties in providing these reports. Credit card numbers, bank account
numbers, and passwords are not shared with advertisers, sponsors or
promotional partners, and are only shared with specific vendors with whom
you place an online order.
Offline and online contact information is handled differently. As
is customary in the publications business, offline contact information
(i.e., your name and mailing address) is shared with third parties who may
send you offers or information about their products or services.
You must opt-out if you do not wish for us to share such offline contact
information with third parties, or if you do not wish to receive
promotions from us by mail.
We may extend email offers to you on behalf of our business partners
about their products or services, but only if you have indicated that you
would like to receive such offers. Although InterMedia may receive a
fee from our business partners for this service, InterMedia sends those
offers on behalf of the business partner, and does not share your email
address with them. Of course, you may opt-out of receiving those
offers at any time.
At our websites, visitors will also have opportunities to sign up
directly with certain advertisers and sponsors to enter contests or
sweepstakes, receive email updates, or to receive information directly
from them. Third party vendors and advertisers will also use
technical and other consultants. We urge visitors to carefully
review the privacy policies of these firms. InterMedia is not
responsible for the privacy policies and procedures of any third party.
Trusted Fulfillment Partners. Sometimes we will
give you the opportunity to opt in to receive email offers directly from
third parties not affiliated with InterMedia. If you decide to
accept these offers, we will provide your contact information to the third
party. As our trusted fulfillment partners may keep and use your
information whether or not you purchase their products or use their
services, your personal information will be subject to their privacy
policies, and you should contact them directly for more information about
their specific privacy and opt-out policies.
Public Postings. You should be aware that if you
voluntarily disclose information, personal or otherwise, online in any
community area (whether through InterMedia's websites or any other service
available online), that information can be collected and used by others.
For example, if you use chat, forums, bulletin boards or message
boards, or if you post personal information online (such as your email
address, photograph, etc.), you may receive unsolicited messages from
others. InterMedia has no control over this use of your personal
We reserve the right to use or disclose any information without notice or
consent as compelled by applicable law, regulation or legal requirement; to
conduct investigations of complaints or possible breaches of law; to protect
the integrity of our site and our property and assure adherence to our terms

HOW DO WE USE WEB BEACONS?
We use Web beacon technologies throughout our sites in order to assess
traffic patterns, determine the effectiveness of our advertising campaigns,
determine unique visitor counts and create an improved user experience
throughout our sites. Web beacons are tiny graphics with a unique
identifier, similar in function to cookies, which are commonly used in the
industry and on many major websites. We also may include Web beacons
in promotional email messages or electronic newsletters in order to
determine the effectiveness of those campaigns.
When a user accesses a page or email containing a "Web beacon", notice of
that access is generated and sent to us. Because Web beacons work in
conjunction with cookies, users who do not want this information considered
in association with anonymous cookie information should set their browsers
to turn off cookies. (When users turn off cookies, Web beacon
technologies will still detect users visits anonymously, but this
information cannot be associated with other user information and is

SECURITY OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
We use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to encrypt important
information (e.g., credit card data) while it is in-transit to/from us when
you are buying products or services over the Internet. We employ
appropriate, commercially reasonable security practices to protect your
personal information while stored at our facilities. Finally, we
engage suitable service providers to help us with managing this information,
and contractually require of them appropriate security assurances.
Remember that your personal information may also be accessed by the
username and password you created when you registered at one of our websites
where user accounts are permitted. The confidentiality of any such
password is yours to protect. You may change it anytime by following
the instructions at the website where you registered. Take care to
safeguard your password; if you believe someone else may be using your
password, change it promptly. Remember, also, that any personal
information you post in chat rooms or message boards is available to anyone.
While no security measure can guarantee against compromise, we regularly
review and update our security measures in an effort to provide appropriate
security for all information held by us.
