General Principles

 

We collect personally identifiable information about you only if you choose to share it with us.  Other than as expressly stated elsewhere in this document, we do not share any personally identifiable information with third parties.  Personally identifiable information includes information such as your name, your email address, your mailing address, and any payment methods you may provide us.

 

We may from time to time share aggregated demographic information about our user base with our partners, advertisers, and others.  Aggregated demographic information includes statistical information such as the total number of people who visit our site, what web pages visitors view, the number of people from different geographic areas who visit our site, and similar aggregated information.  We do not identify individual users in connection with providing such aggregated demographic information.

 

Subscriptions, Purchases and Other Transactions

 

In order to become a subscriber, purchase certain products or services, or perform certain other transactions, you must provide us certain information and, in some cases, create a user name and password.  To complete a transaction you are required to give contact information (such as your name and email address) and financial information (such as a credit card number and expiration date). We use this information to contact you (as we describe below), for billing purposes, to fulfill your transaction (including, as applicable, publishing advertisements and notices your order) and for the other purposes described below.  You pledge to provide accurate information in response to any question and shall indemnify us and hold us harmless for any damages caused by your intentional provision of inaccurate information.

 

You may have the option to provide additional demographic information (such as income level and gender); we encourage you to submit this information so we can provide you in the future with content more closely targeted to your interests.

 

We may use third-party vendors to process transactions and provide subscription fulfillment.  These services may have their own privacy policies, terms and conditions.  Please refer to the privacy policies, terms and conditions presented by these services for further information.

 

Our Communication with You

 

If you have registered, purchased products or services, subscribed (online or offline), or contacted us, we will occasionally provide you information regarding events, promotions and other matters of interest to our visitors, including programs conducted by our affiliates.  We may also provide to you reminders following an incomplete purchase and reminders following completed transactions.  We may provide you information and request your support by email, postal mail, and telephone. We do not allow any third parties to communicate with our subscribers or users using our contact lists. 

 

We may use third-party vendors to perform these communications on our behalf, including outside email, postal mail, and telephone communication service providers.  Each vendor may have its own privacy policy and terms and conditions.

 

Out of respect for your privacy, we present the option not to receive these types of communications.  Please see the information under “Choice and Opt-out.”

 

Customer Service

 

If you contact us, we may communicate with you by any means available in response to your inquiries, to provide the services you request, and to manage your account.  We may preserve records of the interaction.

Cookies

 

A cookie is a small text file that is stored on a user’s computer for recordkeeping purposes.  We use session ID cookies to make it easier for you to navigate our site.  A session ID cookie expires when you close your browser.  Except as described under “Visitor Information,” we do not use persistent cookies. Except during the registration process, we do not link the information we store in cookies to any personally identifiable information about you.

 

If you reject cookies, you may still use some portions of our site, but your ability to use some features, including interactive and “community” features, will be limited.

 

Visitor Information

 

As is true of most websites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files.  This information includes internet protocol addresses, browser type, internet service provider, referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data.  We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the site, to learn about users’ movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole.  We do not link this automatically collected data to personally identifiable information.

 

Daily Journal currently uses Google Analytics, and may in the future use other analytics services, to learn about visits to this site. Google Analytics provides reports about how visitors interact with websites so website owners can improve their website and how people find it.  Google Analytics uses cookies to identify visitors.  A different cookie is used for each website, and visitors are not tracked across multiple sites.  To disable this type of cookie, some browsers will indicate when a cookie is being sent and allow you to decline cookies on a case-by-case basis. In addition to declining cookies, you can also install the Google Analytics Opt-out Add-on in your browser, which prevents Google Analytics from collecting information about your visits to this website. 

 

You may learn more about the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on and other Google Analytics privacy information at http://www.google.com/analytics/learn/privacy.html

 

Content Provided by Others

 

Some pages on this site may include content provided by outside services, such as embedded videos from video hosting services including YouTube.  This content may be subject to policies applicable to those outside services, and we recommend you view the privacy policy and any terms and conditions applicable to those outside services.

 

 

Interactive Features

 

Some pages on this site may include services that allow the viewing of content provided by other visitors and the sharing of such content, such as comments to blog posts and discussions in forums.  If these services exist on any particular site, then they are subject to terms of service which further describe your rights and responsibilities with respect to such services. 

 

Security

 

The security of your personal information is important to us.  When you enter sensitive information (such as a credit card number) on our registration or order forms, we encrypt that information in transit using secure socket layer technology.  While we endeavor to secure your information during transit and after receipt, no method of transmission over the Internet or method of electronic storage is 100% secure.  Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security and we urge you to protect your computer by using trusted connections to the Internet and by using anti-virus and firewall software.

 

Business Transactions

 

In the event Daily Journal Corporation or any of its subsidiaries or affiliates goes through a business transaction, such as a merger with another entity or transfer of all or a portion of its assets, any personally identifiable information you submit, as well as any information you provide through the use of community features, will likely be among the assets transferred.  You will be notified via prominent notice on our website for 30 days following the transaction of any such change in ownership or control of your personal information.
