What personal data we collect, and why?

We collect information to provide you with the services you have subscribed to, and to personalize and improve your experience using our services.

All this information is stored on secure servers.

We only use personal data that you have given us or collected during your visit to our site or our purchase orders. We do not collect personal information or sell it to external partners. We may share your information with partners but only to provide you with the publication to which you have subscribed or to improve your user experience on the site. We never share your personal information with third parties for their own marketing purposes.

The personal information about you that we collect generally falls into 2 categories:

  • The information you provide

We may ask you to provide us with personal information to provide you with the service you expect. We may ask you for your contact information to provide you with your publication or to create an account to access the reserved parts of the site. We may also ask you to enter your payment information so that you can pay for your purchases, and also offer to back them up to facilitate your subsequent orders.
