Privacy Policy

Your privacy is very important to us. Accordingly, we have developed this Policy in order for you to understand how we collect, use, communicate and disclose and make use of personal information. The following outlines our privacy policy.

  • Before or at the time of collecting personal information, we will identify the purposes for which information is being collected.
  • We will collect and use of personal information solely with the objective of fulfilling those purposes specified by us and for other compatible purposes, unless we obtain the consent of the individual concerned or as required by law.
  • We will only retain personal information as long as necessary for the fulfillment of those purposes.
  • We will collect personal information by lawful and fair means and, where appropriate, with the knowledge or consent of the individual concerned.
  • Personal data should be relevant to the purposes for which it is to be used, and, to the extent necessary for those purposes, should be accurate, complete, and up-to-date.
  • We will protect personal information by reasonable security safeguards against loss or theft, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use or modification.
  • We will make readily available to customers information about our policies and practices relating to the management of personal information.

We are committed to conducting our business in accordance with these principles in order to ensure that the confidentiality of personal information is protected and maintained.

Personal information refers to information about you that is personally identifiable such as your name, address, e-mail address, or telephone number, and that is not otherwise publicly available.

We may use cookies to store information, such as your personal preferences, when you visit the site. If you submit comments to the web site, your information may be saved in a cookie for your convenience in the future.

We may display third-party advertisements on the web site. Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they advertise on the web site which will also result in information including your IP address, ISP, and web browser used being sent to these advertisers. This information is typically used for geotargeting purposes (display New York City real estate ads to a visitor in New York City, for example) or showing certain advertisements based on specific sites visited (such as showing ads related to cooking to someone who frequently visits these types of sites). Google’s use of the DART cookie allows it to serve ads to users based on their visits to various Internet web sites. This information is not accessible nor stored by Mitchell News.
