This Privacy Policy governs the use and collection of information from you by Star News Group (“we” or “us”) through your use of this site. This Privacy Policy does not apply to any information you may provide to us through other means; for example, at a live event, via mail, or via telephone. Please read this Privacy Policy carefully so that you understand our online privacy practices. By visiting this site, you agree that your visit, and any dispute over our online privacy practices, is governed by this Privacy Policy and our Visitor Agreement.

CHILDREN’S PRIVACY

Children should always get permission from their parents before sending any information about themselves (such as their names, email addresses, and phone numbers) over the Internet, to us or to anyone else. We won’t knowingly allow anyone under 13 to register with our site or to provide any other personally identifying information. If you’re under 13, please do not provide us with any personally identifying information about yourself (such as your name, your email address or your phone number).

INFORMATION COLLECTION AND USE

Registration. To obtain access to certain services on our site, you may be given an opportunity to register with us as a subscriber to our web site and to our newspaper. You agree that you will register only if you are 13 years or older. You agree that the information you supply during that registration process will be accurate and complete and that you will not register under the name of, nor attempt to enter the service under the name of, another person. We reserve the right to reject or terminate any user name that, in our judgment, we deem offensive. You will be responsible for preserving the confidentiality of your password and will notify our Webmaster of any known or suspected unauthorized use of your account.
Order Forms. We request information from the user on our order forms (such as Subscription orders and Classified ad submissions). A user must provide contact information (such as name, email and shipping address). This information is used for fulfilling the customer’s orders. If we have trouble processing an order, the information is used to contact the user.

COMMUNICATIONS FROM THE SITE

Account Communication. Registered users will be emailed in regards to their account with StarNewsGroup.com when necessary. No other communications from the site will be issued other than those to which you have specifically subscribed (email alerts, RSS feeds, etc.).
Cookies. To help make our sites more responsive to the needs of our visitors, we use a standard feature of browser software, called a “cookie,” to assign each visitor a unique, random number—a sort of user ID—that resides on your computer. The cookie doesn’t actually identify the visitor, just the computer that a visitor uses to access our site. Unless you voluntarily identify yourself (through registration, for example), we won’t know who you are, even if we assign a cookie to your computer. The only personal information a cookie can contain is information you supply. A cookie can’t read unrelated data off your hard drive. Our advertisers and the third parties that provide products or services through our site may also assign their own cookies to your browser, a process that we don’t control.
We use cookies to help us tailor our site to your needs, to deliver a better, more personalized service. For example, we may use cookies to track the pages on our site visited by our users, or allow you to save your login information over time so you do not need to re-enter it each time you visit. We can build a better site if we know which pages our users are visiting and how often. Of course, you can set your browser not to accept cookies, but if you do, you may not be able to take advantage of the personalized features enjoyed by other visitors to our site.
Browser Level Information and IP Addresses. Our web server (and virtually every other Web server out there) automatically collects limited information about your computer configuration when you visit our site, including the type of browser software you use, the operating system you’re running, the resolution of your computer monitor, the website that referred you, and your IP address (a numerical address that is used by computers connected to the Internet to identify your computer) so that the web pages you want to view can be transmitted to you. We also use IP address information for systems administration and troubleshooting purposes. Your IP address does not tell us who you are.

DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION

Why we want to know. As with any business, it’s important for us to know our customers—their needs, their likes, what they want and expect from us. Since we make certain sections of this site available without charge to our visitors, we rely heavily on advertisers to produce the income necessary to operate our site. Advertisers are like most people: They expect something in return for the money they spend. They want to know how many people will see their ad and how often—in other words, how effective their ad is likely to be. So it’s important that we be able to tell advertisers who our audience is.
Advertisers. Without your permission, we will not share the personally-identifiable information you provide when registering on our site with advertisers. We will, however, take the information you provide and aggregate it with data from all the other people that use this site and associated services. Then we will use that pool of information to inform our advertisers about our audience without identifying you personally. For example, we’ll be able to say to an advertiser: “We have 3,470 readers in this ZIP code,” which happens to be your location.
Vendors and Service Providers. To make our sites more valuable to our visitors, we may offer some features in conjunction with other providers ("Provider Partners"). Our chat, email newsletters, email services and online classifieds for example, may be made available through cooperative arrangements with providers that specialize in operating such services. In some instances, our Provider Partners will have the same access to your information as we do. Their use of the information will be subject to the terms of their respective privacy policies, which you can find on their websites.
Statistical Information. Much of the information we collect is in the form of aggregated statistics, such as the traffic that visits various pages within our sites, and the habits and preferences of our audience. Such aggregated information does not include any information that would identify you personally. We may use such aggregated information and disclose it to third parties as we see fit.
Sites to Which We Link. Of course, our site includes links to plenty of other websites, and provides access to products and services offered by third parties, whose privacy policies we don’t control. When you access another site or purchase products or services or conduct other transactions through our sites, use of any information you provide is governed by the privacy policy of the operator of the site you’re visiting or the provider of such products or services.
Other Disclosures. We may occasionally release information about our visitors when release is appropriate to comply with law, to enforce our Visitor Agreement, or to protect the rights, property or safety of visitors to our sites, the public, our customers, or our company and its employees, agents, partners and affiliates. As our business grows, we may buy or sell various assets. In the unlikely event that our company, or the bulk of our assets relating to this site, is acquired by another company, information on our visitors would be among the transferred assets.

CHANGES TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY

A final note: The Web is an evolving medium. If we need to change our privacy policy at some point in the future, we’ll post the changes before they take effect.

Effective Date: March 1, 2007
