When you purchase through LinksMedia., we will ask you to provide us with personal information, such as your name, mailing address, e-mail address, credit card information and other personal identifying information. We need this information in order to process your orders and need to share this personal information with the relevant supplierr and/or other involved third party. LinksMedia. will send you an e-mail message confirming each your online transaction. Credit card information is not stored by the LinksMedia. Web site.

As a user of LinksMedia., you have the option to engage in certain additional activities on the site, such as downloading software, entering contests or sweepstakes, or receiving our monthly newsletter. It is completely optional for you to engage in these activities. If you elect to engage in these activities, however, LinksMedia. may require you to provide us with personal information, such as your name, mailing address, e-mail address, and other personal identifying information. LinksMedia. needs to collect this personal information for various reasons, which may include: (i) notifying sweepstakes or contest winners, (ii) fulfilling prizes; (ii) disseminating our newsletter; (iii) aggregating statistical information; and (iv) tracking/verifying compliance with LinksMedia. policies and federal, state and local laws.

Use of Cookies

Cookies are small pieces of data, which often include an anonymous unique identifier, that a Web site transfers to your hard drive for record keeping purposes and contain information about you. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any of the PII which is described above. Cookies can make the Web more useful by storing information about your preferences on a particular site. For example, by setting a cookie on the LinksMedia. Web site, you would not have to log in a password more than once, thereby saving time while on our site. We never save credit card information in cookies. The use of cookies is an industry standard, and many major Web sites use them to provide useful features for their customers.

Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies. You can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, note that some parts of the LinksMedia. service will not function properly or may be considerably slower if you refuse cookies. For example, without cookies, you will not be able to set personalized news preferences or you may have difficulty booking reservations or purchasing travel services, entering contests or sweepstakes, or playing games.

You may occasionally get cookies from our adverting partner. LinksMedia does not collect any PII about you, such as your name, address, phone number or email address. LinksMedia does collect non-personally identifiable information about you, such as the server your computer is logged onto, your browser type (for example, Netscape or Internet Explorer), and whether you responded to the ad delivered. The non-personally identifiable information collected by LinksMedia is used for the purpose of targeting ads and measuring ad effectiveness on behalf of LinksMedia's advertisers and Web publishers who specifically request it. LinksMedia. does not have access to, or control of, these cookies. The use of cookies by other companies is subject to each company's own respective privacy policy. Advertisers or other companies do not have access to LinksMedia.'s cookies.


Use of Traffic Data

Each time a visitor comes to our Web site, we collect some information to improve the overall quality of the online experience. At the Web site, we collect the visitor's domain name (i.e. where the user is logged on, such as from yahoo.com, etc.), referral data (e.g., we record the address of the last URL a user visited prior to clicking through to the LinksMedia. Web site), and browser and platform type (e.g., a Netscape browser on a Macintosh platform). We collect visitor information for purposes of product monitoring, product improvement, and targeted advertising. We also count, track, and aggregate all visitors' activity into our analysis of general traffic flows at our sites (e.g. tracking where traffic comes from, how traffic flows within the LinksMedia. properties, etc.). To these ends, we may merge information about you into group data, which may then be shared on an aggregated basis with our advertisers; but LinksMedia. will not disclose your individual identity or personal data without your permission. When LinksMedia. does present aggregated information to outside companies, no one is able to identify you or contact you.


Use of IP Addresses

An IP address is a number that's automatically assigned to your computer whenever you're surfing the Web. Web servers, the big computers that "serve up" web pages, automatically identify your computer by its IP address.

LinksMedia. collects IP addresses for the purposes of system administration, to report aggregate, or combined, information to our advertisers, and to audit the use of our site. When users request pages from the LinksMedia. Web site, our servers log the user's IP addresses. We do not normally link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable, which means that your session will be logged, but you remain anonymous to us. We can and will use IP addresses to identify a user when we feel it is necessary to enforce compliance with our rules or terms of service or to protect our service, site, customers or others.


Use of Email Data

LinksMedia. will use your e-mail address to send confirmations, important updates and newsletters. Members who sign up to receive LinksMedia.'s newsletter and notifications of specials.

Users can choose to unsubscribe from LinksMedia. newsletters or product-related announcements at any time by following the unsubscribe instructions found in each email, or by e-mailing your request to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . when writing to the webmaster please forward a copy of the announcement email you received.


Contests and Sweepstakes

LinksMedia. offers contests and sweepstakes in which we request certain personal information. At a minimum, the required information includes name and e-mail address; in some cases, the user must answer mandatory survey questions about a range of other personal data. The information gathered in the entry form is used to verify the entrant's identity and to contact winners and/or prize recipients. Participation in these contests and sweepstakes is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. There are two situations in which LinksMedia. will divulge this information to a third party provided the user gives express consent:

(1) a user may expressly choose to receive additional information from the contest sponsor, in which case the user's PII is divulged to the advertiser; and

(2) some of the contests may be hosted on the LinksMedia. site but administered by the sponsor; in which case, the user's PII is divulged to the sponsor. Because the rules and terms of each contest and sweepstakes can vary, all information about each contest and sweepstakes is clearly posted during the event. All contests and sweepstakes are conducted in full accordance with United States federal and state laws.


SurveysOccasionally

LinksMedia. conducts user surveys to better target our content to our audience. Participation in these surveys is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. We sometimes share the aggregated demographic information in these surveys with our advertisers and partners. We never share any of this information about specific individuals with any third party.


Co-branding and Framing

LinksMedia. co-brands or frames web pages with other companies. You will see LinksMedia.'s logo and navigation bars, but you will be receiving information from that company's server, not by LinksMedia.. Each will collect personal information such as name, address and credit card number to fulfill your travel request. LinksMedia. recommends that you review the privacy policy of all third-party web sites to understand how they collect, use and disclose your personal information.


Links to Other Sites

Users should be aware that when you are on LinksMedia., you could be directed to other sites that are beyond our control. There are links to other sites from LinksMedia. pages that take you outside our service. For example, if you "click" on a banner advertisement or a LinksMedia. search result, the "click" takes you off the LinksMedia. site. This includes links from advertisers, sponsors and partners that may use LinksMedia.'s logo as part of a co-branding agreement. These other sites may send their own cookies to users, collect data, solicit personal information or engage in other activities beyond our control. LinksMedia.'s Privacy Policy does not extend to those sites, to anything that is inherent in the operation of the Internet or to anything beyond LinksMedia.'s control. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects PII.


Security

LinksMedia. has taken strong measures to protect the security of your personal information and to ensure that your choices for its intended use are honored. We take strong precautions to protect your data from loss, misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure, alteration, or destruction. The importance of security for all PII associated with our guests is of utmost concern to us. We exercise great care in providing secure transmission of your information from your PC to our servers. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, LinksMedia. can not ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our online products or services, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems. When credit card information is transmitted we use industry standard, SSL (secure socket layer) encryption. Your LinksMedia. account is password protected so that only you can access it and view the member information relevant to the account. We recommend that you do not divulge your password to anyone. LinksMedia. will never ask you for your password in an unsolicited phone call or email. Ultimately, you are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your passwords and any account information.
