Privacy / User Agreement
General User Information
In general, we gather information about all of our users collectively, such as what areas users visit most often and what services users access the most. We only use such data in the aggregate. This information helps us determine what is most beneficial for our users, and how we can continually create a better overall experience for our users. We may share this information with our advertisers and collaborators, but only in the aggregate, so that they too may understand how McLean Publishing Company Online users, collectively, use our site and our services.
While visiting any of the McLean Publishing Company Online Web sites (collectively, the "site"), we may ask you to register and/or provide information that personally identifies you ("personal information") for purposes of interacting with the site. Such personal information may include, but is not limited to, your name, phone number, street address, and e-mail address. On any page that collects personal information, we will specifically describe what information is required in order to provide you with the product or service, enter you in the promotion you have requested, or respond to your inquiry or comment.
What are Cookies? A cookie is a small data text file that a Web site sends to your browser, which is stored on your system. The site can only access the information from a cookie sent by the site. We cannot access cookies sent by other Web sites or the information contained therein. Additionally, we cannot learn your e-mail address or any other information about you through the use of a cookie. The only way we would learn such information is if you specifically and voluntarily submit that information to us, for example, through a registration system, or by entering a sweepstakes or promotion.
May I decline to accept a cookie? You may decline to accept cookies sent by the site by selecting an option on your browser to reject cookies. However, portions of the site which require registration will not be accessible to you. In such cases, we ask that you register and provide us with basic information on our registration page, or sign in if previously registered.
