Privacy Policy

By Saber Ben Hassen

CarthageMagazine.com may use personally identifiable information (your name, e-mail address, street address, cell phone number) subject to the terms of this privacy policy. This privacy policy pertains to information collected when you subscribe to Carthage Magazine and visit the CarthageMagazine.com website.

What Personal Data we Collect and Why we Collect It

The information we collect varies depending on the services you ask us to provide. You can visit most pages on our website without providing any information. On certain pages, however, you may be asked to provide personal information–examples are when you subscribe to Carthage Magazine’s newsletter, submit a customer service inquiry or reach out to us via the contact us page.

The types of personal information we collect may include your first and last name, Internet Protocol address, zip code, mailing address, e-mail address, gender, and phone number.

Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

Cookies

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Embedded Content from Other Websites

Articles on this website may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

How Long we Retain your Data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What Rights you Have Over your Data

If you have an account on this website, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we Send your Data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

What We Do with Information We Collect from You

We use any information we collect from you in accordance with applicable laws. We may use aggregated information–information that cannot be used to identify you individually–in many ways. For example, we may combine information about your usage patterns with the usage patterns of other users to identify pages on our website that are frequently visited so we can improve our site’s performance. We may occasionally share aggregated, anonymous information with our business partners and affiliates and/or with third-party advertisers, but this information cannot be traced back to you individually or used to contact you.

We may use your personal contact information, including your e-mail address, to communicate with you regarding your subscription(s), other features and services offered by CarthageMagazine.com, Carthage Magazine, or our affiliates and business partners, our Terms of Service, and/or this Privacy Policy. We may also use your personal contact information to send e-mail newsletters on other topics we think you might find of interest. We reserve the right to share your personal contact information with our affiliates and business partners.

If you register to receive e-mail newsletters on the website, we will not share or sell your registration information, including your name and e-mail address, with third parties for any purpose.

How You Can Control the Information We Collect About You

You can always choose not to submit your personal information on the CarthageMagazine.com website. If you do not wish to receive e-mail messages from CarthageMagazine.com about new features or products we think may be of interest, you can unsubscribe at any time. We will always include an opt-out web link or reply e-mail address in each e-mail message. After unsubscribing, you will be removed from our e-mail database. Please allow up to 10 business days to process your request. After unsubscribing, you may still receive e-mail messages about the status of your account, to resolve technical issues, or to confirm a new subscription.

If you wish to make changes to any personal information you have provided us, or if you have any questions about what we do with your personal information, please contact us by sending an e-mail to privacy@carthagemagazine.com.

How Your Personal Information is Protected Online

To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the appropriate use of personally identifiable information, we have put in place physical, electronic, and administrative procedures to protect the personally identifiable information we collect online.

Affiliated Websites, Third-Party Linked Sites, and Third-Party Advertisements

The ads appearing on this web site are delivered to you by our web advertising partners, like Google. CarthageMagazine.com expects its business partners, advertisers, and third-party affiliates to respect the privacy of our users. However, third parties’ web sites – including those of our partners, advertisers, affiliates, and other content providers’- have their own privacy practices and policies. When you click on a banner advertisement or link from CarthageMagazine.com to an external website, you should review that site’s Privacy Policy before submitting any personal information on the site.

Our web advertising partners send us aggregate, anonymous information about visits to this site, such as the number of times visitors clicked on a particular advertisement – but not visitors’ names, addresses, or other personal information.

You also should be aware that our Web advertising partners may place or recognize a unique cookie on your browser. Cookies enable advertisers to determine whether you have seen a particular advertisement before.
