Purpose of this Privacy Policy

This privacy policy describes how Summit Media, its affiliates and third party agents (such as those who fulfill magazine subscriptions for Summit) treat the Personally Identifiable Information that is collected about you when you visit the web sites, mobile-optimized versions of the web site, and digital applications to which this policy is linked.

What is Personally Identifiable Information

"Personally Identifiable Information" is information that we can use to identify you as an individual. Personally Identifiable Information includes your name, age, gender, home or business address, telephone number and any other information that is readily identifiable with you personally.

Information This Privacy Policy Does Not Apply To

This privacy policy does not apply to information collected about you by anyone except Summit Media and only applies to the web sites, mobile-optimized versions of the web sites and digital applications to which this policy is linked. Any information you provide when you visit web sites other than those covered by this privacy policy (including other web sites affiliated with Summit Media) or when you purchase any products or services, or enter contests, that may be linked to or advertised on our web site by companies other than Summit Media is subject to the privacy policies posted on those sites.

Collection of Personally Identifiable Information

Summit Media generally collects Personally Identifiable Information with your specific knowledge and consent. For instance, enter a sweepstakes or contest, complete a survey, participate in a reader panel, register for those portions of our sites that may require registration, make a purchase, participate in our social networking features, request back issues, subscribe to our magazines or subscribe to our newsletters, and other electronic services you will be asked to provide information such as your e-mail address, name, phone number, and shipping address. Information such as your age, gender, hobbies or interests may also be requested. This information may sometimes be collected by third party service providers with whom Summit Media contracts to host the web site or to fulfill requests for services; in that event, Summit Media asks such service providers to make the personal information confidential and available only to Summit Media for Summit to use in accordance with the terms of this privacy policy and not to use the information for any other purpose. Summit Media uses this information to provide you with the service you have requested. If you subscribe to any of our Magazines, we may use your e-mail address to send you a confirmation notice and your mailing address to send you your magazine. Similarly, if you enter online sweepstakes, we will use this information to notify you if you are a winner. We might also send out e-mails to users and sweepstakes/contest entrants to announce special offers, services and announcements from our sites and/or our advertisers. If you provide personal information for use in any of our social networking channels or tools (which may include services such as match-ups, dating, friendships, instant messaging and the like), we will use that information in the manner contemplated by the particular networking channel. Please check each channel for a description of how networking is conducted. We will not use your personal information for any purpose other than what is contemplated in this privacy policy.

Summit Media does not sell, trade, or rent your personal information to others. We allow access only to member/participant demographics. We only give your personal information to sponsors if you agree and indicate that you would like to receive information from them. Our websites may publish aggregate statistics about our customers, sales, traffic patterns, and related site information in media kits and other advertising materials. These statistics, however, will not includePersonally Identifying Information.

In addition, we may use information you provide us through emails, Q & A, blogs, forums, in response to polls, or though any other user-generated submission for editorial purposes, and may use your name and any stories you provide us in articles published online and in our Magazines. Please be advised that any such submissions become the property of Summit Media and may be used by Summit Media for any lawful purpose. If you provide us with personal anecdotes, they may be attributed to you. Summit Media can edit, rewrite, use, and reuse the content, including your name, likeness, photograph, and biographical information you provide, in any way and any media whether now known or invented in the future, with or without attribution, including publication in the Magazines, and in trade media, and advertising. You agree that any content you send us will not violate any rights of any third party and that you will only send us content for which you own the rights or have the legal right to use them.

Some of our sites may from time to time partner with a retailer or other third party to offer online shopping opportunities, games, services, subscriptions and other applications on a co-branded or cross-promotional basis. Those transactions may take place on a Summit Media site, or the site of the third party. In either case, personal information you provide in connection with the transaction may be shared with the third party, as well as with any participating sponsors or advertisers of such opportunities and features. Some of our sites may offer you the ability to access a third-party site with whom we have a relationship to access both sites through a co-branded registration or password; in that event, your applicable registration information may be shared with the third-party partner and used by them in accordance with their own privacy policy. We will notify you at the applicable point of sign up if any such co-branded registration or password practices will be in effect.

Some of our applications and mobile-optimized sites may have location-based features. For those features, we will collect your geographic location and, depending on the application, other information you provide us to enable you to enjoy the service being offered. For example, we may offer shopping features that allows you to get information about local merchants or travel features that allows you to locate nearby sights and destinations. We will use your location to serve relevant content, and your information may be shared with third party retailers and other facilities as applicable to allow you to take advantage of the particular service being offered. In the unlikely event that we believe that the security of your personal information in our possession or control may have been compromised, we may seek to notify you of that development. If a notification is appropriate, we would endeavour to do so as promptly as possible under the circumstances, and, to the extent we have your e-mail address, we may notify you by e-mail.

In addition to the foregoing, Summit Media may share or disclose Personally Identifiable Information about you to other companies or individuals when:

  • we utilize third party service providers to provide products, services or functions on our behalf (such as sending emails or processing credit cards or fulfilling subscriptions), and ask these service providers to agree to maintain the confidentiality of your personally identifiable information and not to use your personally identifiable information for any reason except to carry out the purpose(s) for which we hired them;
  • You have entered a contest or sweepstakes sponsored by a third party, in which case the information may be shared with that third party for their use in their discretion, including direct marketing (Some of our contests and sweeps will ask you at the time of entry whether you would like your personal information to be shared with the sponsor. Other contests will not give you that option and in that event, if you do not want your information to be shared, you should not enter the contest);
  • we publish a magazine to which you subscribe through a licensing arrangement with a third party, in which event our third party partner may use your personally identifiable information to the same extent that we can;
  • we facilitate Research Studies, Focus Group Discussions and Surveys for sponsors.

You are under no obligation to participate. If you do not wish to be invited to research groups, simply decline the email invitation. Sponsors will be authorized to access Research Group Reports that may contain the following: research group profile (total number of participants, date joined, and demographics); discussion transcript/s; survey tabulation with individual responses; and contest winners.
  • the entity to whom the information is disclosed is hosting web sites associated with our magazines or magazines we publish in conjunction with a third party, other than those web sites covered by this policy;
