Is there anything else I should know about my privacy and WE Magazine for Women?

Any information you disclose voluntarily on our comments pages or in any forums we may develop in the future becomes public information. We cannot control the actions of our site users and advise you to use your discretion in sharing information about yourself on the internet. All information sharing is optional and done so at your own risk. Privacy is a very personal matter and we encourage you to be careful and responsible when disclosing personal information online.

The Limits of Our Abilities

Although your privacy is very important to us, due to the existing legal regulatory and security environment, we cannot fully ensure that your private communications and other personally identifiable information will not be disclosed to third parties. The government or third parties under certain circumstances may intercept or access transmissions or private communications.

Security

We use industry-standard efforts to safeguard the confidentiality of your personal identifiable information, such as firewalls and Secure Socket Layers where appropriate. However, no data transmissions over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. When you transmit data over the internet, you do so at your own risk. In many cases – such as event registration – other options may be available to you such as snail mail, the telephone or by fax.

Other Sites

Please note that if you provide any information on your own or directly to parties who provide service to WE Magazine, any merchants who offer discounts to our readers, or any other sites you encounter on the Internet (even if these sites are branded with our branding), different rules may apply to their use or disclosure of the personal information you disclose to them. We encourage you to investigate and ask questions before disclosing information to third parties. (Note: WE Magazine. places advertising on our sites that originates from outside advertisers and/or advertising agencies. In some cases, if you click on or view these ads, a cookie may be assigned by the advertiser).

Corrections

We will update and correct any information that is found or known to be incorrect either through our own record-keeping or as advised by a reader of WE Magazine.
