We highly value your privacy and have made this policy to assist you in understanding the handling of information in the course of using this site.

Registration and Use of Personal Information
In general, you can visit this website on the internet without being asked to provide personal information. Registration is not required in order to use or access this website. Please note that if you post comments or articles to this site, any personally identifiable information you provide in those comments or articles may be read, collated and used by anyone viewing them. As such, we are not responsible for personally identifiable information you may choose to make available through these channels.

We also provide visitors to our website the opportunity subscribe to the RSS Feed or Email Updates. The RSS Feed and Email Updates are managed by Feedburner. If you elect to sign up for email updates, you will be asked for your email address. We will not use your email address for any other purpose, and we will not sell your information to a third party. You may opt out of receiving any, or all, of these communications by clicking on the “unsubscribe” link found in any email we send to you.

If you choose to correspond with us, we may retain the content of your email messages together with your email address and our responses.

Legal Disclaimer
We reserve the right to disclose any information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order or legal process served on our website.

Log Files
As with most other websites, this website utilizes industry standard analytic packages which automatically gathers limited, non-personal information on visitors to our website, and stores this anonymous information in server log files. This information may include your IP addresses, browser type, ISP, referring pages, and date/time stamps. This information does not identify individual users; it is primarily used for site administration, as well as for analysis of website usage and trends.

Links to Other Websites
This website allows third parties to serve creatives and contains links to other sites that are not owned or controlled in any way by us. Links to external sites should not be considered endorsements of those sites or any of their content. Please be aware of this when you click on any such links; we are not responsible for the privacy practices and/or policies of any website other than our own. Consequently, we strongly suggest that you review the privacy policy of every website you visit, whether or not they are linked to by our own site.

Third-Party Advertising
TheStyleJournal.com uses third-party advertising companies to support this site. Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they advertise on our site, which will also send these advertisers (such as Google through the Google AdSense program) information including your IP address, your ISP, the browser you used to visit our site, and in some cases, whether you have Flash installed. I would recommend reading the privacy policy for each site you visit.

DoubleClick DART cookies
DART cookies are used for ad serving through Google’s DoubleClick, which places a cookie on your computer when you are browsing the web and visit a site using DoubleClick advertising (including some Google AdSense advertisements). This cookie is used to serve ads specific to you and your interests (”interest based targeting”). The ads served will be targeted based on your previous browsing history. Although TheStyleJournal.com has chosen to opt out of Google’s Interest-Based Advertising, this site may still show ads based on a user’s previous interactions with an advertiser, such as past visits to that advertiser’s site.

DART uses “non personally identifiable information”. It does NOT track personal information about you, such as your name, email address, physical address, telephone number, social security numbers, bank account numbers or credit card numbers. You can opt-out of this ad serving on all sites using this advertising by visiting http://www.doubleclick.com/privacy/dart_adserving.aspx

You can choose to disable or selectively turn off our cookies or third-party cookies in your browser settings, or by managing preferences in programs such as Norton Internet Security. However, this can affect how you are able to interact with our site as well as other websites. This could include the inability to login to services or programs, such as logging into forums or accounts.

Deleting cookies does not mean you are permanently opted out of any advertising program. Unless you have settings that disallow cookies, the next time you visit a site running the advertisements, a new cookie will be added.

Changes/Revisions
We reserve the right to change any of the above policies at any time. If you are concerned about your information or how it is used or collected, please check this page periodically.
