The Internet, Privacy, and the MagazineSystem.com Web Site
The Internet contains a wealth of information, unfortunately, it may also contain personal details about you that you don't want everyone to know. For example, your real name (lots of people on the Internet use aliases, alter egos or nicknames), street address, phone number, or e-mail address. When you go online, sites you visit may be gathering information about you without your knowledge. At the MagazineSystem.com WEB SITE we strive to help our customers protect their privacy while using our services.

The MagazineSystem.com Web Site may disclose user information in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) The MagazineSystem.com Web Site's rights or property, otherThe MagazineSystem.com Web Site users, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities.

The MagazineSystem.com Web Site encourages parents and guardians to spend time online with their children and to participate in the activities offered on the sites. No information should be submitted to or posted at The MagazineSystem.com Web Site by guests under 16 years of age without the consent of their parent or guardian.
Unless otherwise disclosed during collection, The MagazineSystem.com Web Site does not provide any personally identifying information, regardless of its source, to any third party for any purpose whatsoever from our guests under 16 years of age. All registrants receive an e-mail confirming their Registration. In addition, when a guest under 16 registers, he or she is required to provide the e-mail address of his or her parent or guardian and that parent or guardian receives an e-mail alerting them to that Registration. The parent or guardian must validate the account, as described in the e-mail, in order for the potential member to use most The MagazineSystem.com Web Site interactive services. No information collected from guests under 16 years of age is used for any marketing or promotional purposes whatsoever, either inside or outside The MagazineSystem.com Web Site except as explicitly stated during registration for contests or promotions (and in that case, the information collected is used only for the specific contest or promotion).
Although guests under 16 years of age may be allowed to participate in some contests and promotions, if such a guest wins, notification and prizes are sent to the parents or guardians identified in the initial registration process. Publication of contest winners names, ages, or images for individuals under 16 require parental or guardian consent.
We do not allow guests under 16 years of age to be listed in our member directory or to receive direct marketing communications from The MagazineSystem.com Web Site or to be sent our third-party offers.
Use of IP Address
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.
The MagazineSystem.com Web Site collects IP addresses for the purposes of system administration, to report aggregate information to our advertisers, and to audit the use of our site. When guests request pages from the MagazineSystem.com WEB SITES, our servers log the guests' IP addresses. We do not normally link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable, which means that a user's session will be logged, but the user remains 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 house rules or terms of service or to protect our service, site, customers or others.
Some services within The MagazineSystem.com Web Site, such as certain message boards, may display IP addresses along with the message poster's name and message. Please review each service prior to use and only use those that disclose information you are comfortable with sharing.
By showing how and when guests use a site, cookies help us see which areas are popular and which are not. Many improvements and updates to the site are based on such data as total number of visitors and pages viewed. This information is most easily tracked with cookies. We use the information from cookies to provide services better tailored to our users needs.
You may occasionally get cookies from our advertisers.The MagazineSystem.com Web Site does not control these cookies. The use of advertising cookies sent by third-party servers is standard in the Internet industry.
Links to Other Sites
Users should be aware that when you are on The MagazineSystem.com Web Site, you could be directed to other sites that are beyond our control. There are links to other sites from The MagazineSystem.com Web Site pages that take you outside our service. For example, if you "click" on a banner advertisement or The MagazineSystem.com Web Site links, the "click" takes you off the The MagazineSystem.com Web Site site. This includes links from advertisers, Center sponsors and partners that may use The MagazineSystem.com Web Site's logo as part of a co-branding agreement. These other sites may send their own cookies to users, collect data or solicit personal information.
Please keep in mind that whenever you give out personal information online --- for example, via message boards or chat --- that information can be collected and used by people you don't know. While The MagazineSystem.com Web Site strives to protect its user's personal information and privacy, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you disclose online and you do so at your own risk.
The MagazineSystem.com Web Site's policy does not extend to anything that is inherent in the operation of the Internet, and therefore beyond The MagazineSystem.com Web Site's control, and is not to be applied in any manner contrary to applicable law or governmental regulation.
The importance of security for all personally identifiable information 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, The MagazineSystem.com Web Site can't 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.

Ultimately, you are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your passwords and any account information.
Remember to sign out of your The MagazineSystem.com Web Site account and close your browser window when you have finished your work. This is to ensure that others cannot access your personal information and correspondence if your computer is accessible to others or if you share a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place like a library or internet cafe
Your Acceptance of These Terms
This is a great place for both new and advanced Web users to find information on using the Internet wisely.
The MagazineSystem.com Web Site's Internet Safety Tips
1. Keep your passwords private, even from your best friend! Your online
service will never ask for them, so neither should anyone else.
2. Use only your member name and/or e-mail address when chatting or sending e-mail. Never give out personal information like your name, address, or phone number.
3. Always delete unknown e-mail attachments before opening them. They can contain destructive viruses.
4. Remember that nothing you write on the Web is completely private - including e-mail. So be careful and think about what you type and who you tell.
5. Not everyone is as nice, cute and funny as they may sound online. Never make plans to meet an online "friend" in person.
