Privacy Policy

 

Moment Magazine (“Moment,” ”We,“ ”Us,“ or “Our”) is strongly committed to protecting your privacy and helping you understand how We collect, use and safeguard the personal information collected though Our website and mobile applications (the “Online Services“).  This document (the “Privacy Policy”) describes the policies We have implemented with regards to collecting and using information about you.  By accessing or using any portion of the Online Services or any service or content contained therein, you are acknowledging that you have read, understand, accept this Privacy Policy and agree, without limitation or qualification, to be bound by this Privacy Policy and Our Terms and Conditions.  If you do not agree to be bound by this Privacy Policy, please do not use the Online Services.

 

1.   Changes to this Privacy Policy.  Our Online Services and content, and Our privacy practices, may change over time and, accordingly, We reserve the right, in Our sole discretion, to change, add or remove portions of this Privacy Policy at any time and for any reason.  If We change this Privacy Policy, We will post the revised document here, and such changes will be effective immediately upon that posting. As We may make changes at any time without notifying you, you should periodically review this Privacy Policy when accessing or using the Online Services.  Each use of the Online Services constitutes your agreement to be bound by and comply with the then-current Privacy Policy. If at any time you no longer agree to be bound by or comply with the Privacy Policy, then you should stop accessing and using the Online Services.

 

This Privacy Policy was last updated: August 2013

If you have previously provided Us with your personally identifiable information and would like to change your communication preferences or opt-out of certain of Our uses of your information, please see Section 7 below.

 

3.   Cookies. We, or our advertisers or service providers, may also use “cookies” to track and gather certain information when You use the Online Services.  A cookie is a small text file that contains information and is either stored temporarily in your browser (a session cookie) or placed on your computer’s hard drive for a longer, predetermined length of time (a persistent cookie).  The cookie is then sent back to the Online Services on your subsequent visits.  The information gathered by these cookies is typically “non-personally identifiable” information like your IP address, operating system, browser type, and suspected geographic location that is anonymized and aggregated with data from other website visitors.

 

By using the Online Services you are giving your consent to Our and our advertisers’ or other service providers’ use of cookies to track and gather information.  If you do not consent to the use of cookies, you must discontinue Your use of the Online Services or configure your browser to reject cookies.

 

4.   How We Use and Share Information.  We use the information you provide to deliver you the content and services you have requested, such as by sending you Our newsletters, providing you with online account access, or responding to your inquiries.  We may also use your information to send you e-mails, mailings, surveys or other communications concerning Moment and Our products and initiatives.  Additionally, We may use your information in connection with Our internal business purposes such as generating statistics and developing marketing plans, or for any other purpose We deem necessary or desirable to enhance your experience with the Online Services and related products and services.

 

We may retain other companies and individuals as Our service providers to perform functions on Our behalf – for example, data analysis firms, customer support specialists, webhosting companies, telemarketing companies and fulfillment companies (e.g., companies that coordinate mailings). These third parties may be provided with access to personally identifiable information, or may collect information about you and your use of the Online Services on their own.

 

When you place an order or make a donation through Our website, you may be required to submit your credit card information to us or to Our service providers.  We do not share this credit card information with other companies or persons, other than your credit card issuer or Our service providers, to collect payment or as otherwise disclosed in this Privacy Policy.

 

We may provide access to Our mailing list of e-mail addresses, names and physical mailing addresses to Our partners or to other like-minded organizations for marketing, advertising, or fact-gathering purposes.  If you prefer that your information is not provided to these organizations, please see Section 7 below.  WE, TO THE FULL EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, HEREBY DISCLAIM ANY AND ALL LIABILITY FOR ANY TYPE OF DAMAGES INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR SPECIAL DAMAGES, OR LOSSES OR EXPENSES, FOR THEIR ACTIONS AND CUSTOMER INFORMATION PRACTICES.

 

We may disclose any information, including personally identifiable information, We deem necessary, in Our sole discretion, to governmental authorities or private parties in order to comply with any applicable law, regulation, legal process, investigation or governmental request. We may also disclose such information where We believe it is necessary to investigate, prevent or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, or violations of Our policies or Terms and Conditions, to verify or enforce compliance with the policies governing the Online Services and applicable laws, or as otherwise required or permitted by law or consistent with legal requirements.

 

5.   Security.  We may implement various security measures to help protect your personal information and reduce the risk of loss, misuse or alteration of the personal information under Our control.  Unfortunately, however, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while We strive to protect your personal information, We cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information you transmit to or from the Online Services, and you do so at your own risk.

 

6.   Retention.  We will retain your personal information and other data submitted by you unless and until you ask to be removed from Our database. When you request to be removed from Our database, you will no longer receive e-mails from Us, but your information will remain in Our database and you may still receive your Moment Magazine subscription or other of Our mailings at your physical address.  If you would like to be removed from Our database and physical address mailing list, please see Section 7 below. Please note that when information is removed from Our databases it may continue to exist in backup archives maintained by Us.

 

7.   Updating Your Information and Opting Out.  If you no longer wish to subscribe to Our online mailings or would like to change your e-mail preferences, you may do so at any time by clicking the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of each e-mail you receive from Us.  Moment Magazine subscriptions are managed by a third-party service provider.  If you would like to cancel your Moment Magazine subscription or change to subscription preferences, you must contact such service providers as indicated in their communications regarding your subscription.  You may also remove your name from Our database and e-mail and physical address mailing lists, or remove your information from the list provided Our partners and other third party organizations, by contacting Us at [email protected]

 

Please be advised that sometimes these requests may take time to process.  Unsubscribing from Our online mailings may take 2-4 weeks to be effective.

 

8.   Links to Other Sites. You may find content on in the Online Services that links to websites of Our partners, sponsors or other third parties.  Please be aware that We are not responsible for the privacy practices of these other parties or their websites.  This Privacy Policy applies only to the information that We collect through the Online Services. We encourage you to read the privacy policies of other websites you link to from the Online Services or otherwise visit. TO THE FULL EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, MOMENT HEREBY DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL LIABILITY FOR ANY TYPE OF DAMAGES INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR SPECIAL DAMAGES, OR LOSSES OR EXPENSES, FOR THE ACTIONS AND CUSTOMER INFORMATION PRACTICES OF ANY NON-MOMENT SITE TO WHICH THE ONLINE SERVICES LINK OR REFER.

 

9.   Business Transfers. As We continue to develop and grow, We may sell or liquidate certain of Our assets or combine Our operations with those of another entity. In such transactions, user information, including personally identifiable information, generally is one of the transferred business assets.  By submitting your personally identifiable information through the Online Services you agree that We may transfer your information to such entities in these circumstances.

 

10.   Contact information. Please be assured that We take your privacy quite seriously.  If you have any questions, comments or concerns about Our privacy practices or this Privacy Policy, please contact us:
