WedAZ Magazine is committed to safeguarding your privacy while visiting its website, www.wedaz.com. Our goal is to provide you with an Internet experience that delivers information, resources and services relevant to your needs. To achieve this goal, part of the operation of the site includes gathering certain types of information about site users. We understand that your privacy is important and wish to explain the types of information we may gather and the way in which we would use it.

We will never sell your name or information to third party sources. We will however share your personal information with our advertisers for the purpose of soliciting your wedding business.

What Information Is Collected

This policy covers two types of information gathered on the website: personal and aggregated. “Personal information" refers to data voluntarily provided in order to take advantage of our personalized services in which you are required to provide us with information such as your name, email address, real-world address, wedding date, and role in the wedding. We collect similar information from users who choose to participate in our contests and promotional events.

We always let you know before we collect any personal information from you.

“Aggregated data" refers to general information regarding activity on the site, such as traffic patterns, number of visits to certain pages, visits from other websites or to third-party websites that are linked to WedAZ.com.

How We Collect Your Information

The first thing to remember about privacy is that there is only so much information a website can collect without you answering specific questions. WedAZ Magazine logs IP addresses (the location of your computer on the Internet) for system administration, troubleshooting, and to examine overall traffic trends. (For example, IP addresses help us determine the percentage of people coming from various sources, such as Google.) This information, in aggregate form, is recorded for administrative purposes only. IP addresses are not linked to any personal information.

WedAZ Magazine uses a cookie (a small data file stored on your computer) to customize portions of our site to your preferences. For example, a cookie is used to keep track of information so you do not have to re-enter it each time you visit our site, and may provide you with customized content. The cookie by itself doesn't tell us, or anyone else, who you are, what your email address is, or anything else personal. You provide that information when you register with WedAZ Magazine, and only WedAZ Magazine has access to that information. We do not sell, rent or share any of your personal information with any other party including third-party joint promoters, nor use it for commercial purposes. If you choose set up your browser to reject all cookies, please understand that you may be limited to some the areas or functionality within our site.

If you choose to post comments on our website, you should be aware that any personally identifiable information you submit is public and can be read, collected, or used by other users of those areas, and could be used to send you unsolicited messages. We are not responsible for any personally identifiable information you choose to submit.

From time to time, WedAZ Magazine does share names, postal addresses, email addresses, and other contact and/or demographic information with our advertisers that have specific product and service offers we think may be of interest to you.

We use third-party advertising companies to serve our ads on our Web site. These third-party advertising companies employ cookie and 1x1 pixel .gifs or web beacons to measure and improve the effectiveness of ads for their clients. To do so, these companies may use anonymous information about your visits to our website and other websites. This information can include: date/time of banner ad shown, the banner ad that was shown, their cookie, the IP address. This information can also be used for online preference marketing purposes.

Exceptions to the Privacy Policy
WedAZ Magazine has two exceptions to these limits on use of personal information:
(1) WedAZ Magazine may monitor and, when we believe in good faith that disclosure is required, disclose information to protect the security, property, assets and/or rights of WedAZ Magazine from unauthorized use, or misuse, of the site or anything found at the site.
(2) WedAZ Magazine may disclose information when required by law; however, only to the extent necessary and in a manner that seeks to maintain the privacy of the individual.

Should WedAZ Magazine inadvertently acquire personal information or any other data from users under the age of 18, WedAZ Magazine will not knowingly provide this data to any third party for any purpose whatsoever, and any subsequent disclosure would be due to the fact the user under 18 used the site and submitted personal information without solicitation by or permission from WedAZ Magazine.

Our Security Procedures

We use industry standard efforts to safeguard the confidentiality of your personal identifiable information, such as firewalls and Secure Socket Layers (SSL) where appropriate. We also do everything in our power to protect user-information off-line. All of our users' information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, a Member Services representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information.

Continued access and use of the site without acceptance of the terms of this Privacy Policy relieves WedAZ Magazine from responsibility to the user.
