What We Collect
We collect information that you voluntarily provide to us when you subscribe to our magazines, sign up for email communications, enter sweepstakes, complete surveys, register for events (such as webinars or conferences), or otherwise communicate with us. The personal information we may collect may include your name, email address, company, postal address, phone number, and payment information, as well as additional personal and preference information you provide.
Additionally, we automatically collect certain anonymous information when you visit, use, or navigate our websites. This information may include device and usage information, such as your IP address, referring URLs, information about how and when you use our website and other technical information. Benjamin Media uses this information primarily for our internal analytics and to maintain the security and operation of our websites.
Benjamin Media websites are intended for use by adults or with the consent of adults. No one under the age of 13 should provide any personal information, and minors under the age of 18 are not authorized or permitted to use our websites without the supervision of their parent or legal guardian. If Benjamin Media learns that we have collected information from someone under 13, we will remove that information promptly.
How Your Information Is Used
We require use of the information we collect or receive to respond to your inquiries and/or to provide our services.
We may use your contact information for any of the following reasons:
- To provide you with information about products or services you’ve ordered, including events and tradeshows
- To request renewal of your print or digital subscription(s)
- To ask for your input to help in our research about our services, events, or products
- To provide you with additional information about our websites and about other Benjamin Media products, services, or events that we think might be beneficial to you
- To comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements
We may also send you email communications with targeted, relevant content. Each email will provide you with an opportunity to opt out of that newsletter. In some cases, we may send you relevant, carefully screened offers from reputable third-party businesses or organizations. Many of our customers appreciate receiving these offers because they relate to their business or occupation. However, you will always be able to opt out of receiving future third-party offers.
You can manage your communications preferences when you subscribe or renew, by using the unsubscribe mechanisms or other means provided within the communications that you receive from us, or by contacting us at (847) 504-8191.
What We Share
We provide contact lists to third-party companies that we have employed to provide us with specialized services, including customer service, subscription fulfillment, research, statistical analysis, list cleansing, postal mailings, email and fax deployment, telemarketing, and other information services. In compliance with privacy laws, we also provide our opt-out lists to those third-party companies so that they can be suppressed from the communications those companies send on Benjamin Media’s behalf. We only deal with third-party companies whom we believe share our commitment to privacy and who will keep your information secure.
From time to time our sponsors wish to contact our subscribers who have indicated an interest in the products, services or events publicized in a particular email communication by clicking on their link in the email. If you do not wish to have your email address shared with our sponsors, you will be given an opportunity within the email communication to opt out or you may contact us at (847) 504-8191.
We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others’ rights, property, or safety.
Certain information, such as your password and credit card information, is never disclosed in any form whatsoever to any outside party.
We use reasonable precautions, including appropriate physical, electronic, and administrative procedures, to safeguard and secure information under our control. As data transmission over the Internet involves factors outside of our control, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us.
