SocietyLifeMagazine.com respects the privacy of visitors to our site. This Privacy Policy governs the use and collection of information from you by Caye Publishing, Inc. and its affiliated companies (collectively, "Caye Publishing," "we" or "us") through your use of SocietyLifeMagazine.com (the "Site"). This Privacy Policy does not apply to any information you may provide to us offline.

Please read this Privacy Policy carefully so that you understand our online privacy practices. By visiting this Site, you agree that your visit, and any dispute over our online privacy practices, is governed by this Privacy Policy. We reserve the right to make changes to this Privacy Policy at any time. Any such changes will be promptly posted on this page, with an updated "effective date" posted at the beginning and/or end of this policy.

This Privacy Policy explains the following:

  • What types of information we collect.

  • What cookies are and why we use them.

  • How we use your personal information.

  • With whom we share your personal information.

  • Who is the party collecting your personal information.

  • How you can opt-out of sharing your personal information or receiving our promotional communications.

  • What you need to know about third-party sites and advertising.

  • Whether we knowingly collect personal information of children under 13.

  • How you can contact us.

  • When this privacy policy is effective and how changes to the privacy policy are posted.

What Types of Information Do We Collect?

The information we gather falls into two categories: (1) information (for example, your name, email address and mailing address) that you voluntarily supply when you register or initiate transactions on the Site, and (2) information gathered on usage patterns and preferences as you navigate through our Site, use our services, or read our email newsletters. In some cases, it is an agent or vendor of ours that collects the information on our behalf. Third-party providers featured on or linked to by our Site may be gathering the same kinds of information.

Registration Information

While visiting the Site, we may ask you to register and/or provide information that personally identifies you ("Personal Information"). Such Personal Information may include, but is not limited to, your name, phone number, mailing address, and e-mail address. On any page that collects Personal Information, we will describe what information is required to provide you with the product or service you request or to respond to your inquiry or comment.

Log Files

We may use log files, including, but not limited to internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site, track user's movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses, etc. are not linked to personally identifiable information.

What are Cookies?

A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's computer tied to information about the user. We may use both session ID cookies and persistent cookies. Session ID cookies terminate once the user closes the browser. A persistent cookie is a small text file stored on the user's computer for an extended period of time. Persistent cookies can be removed by following Internet browser help file directions.

With Whom Do We Share Your Personal Information?

Our Affiliated Companies

We may share the information, including Personal Information that we collect through the Site with any company that is directly or indirectly owned, controlled or operated by Caye Publishing so that we and they can communicate with you about products and services that we believe may be of interest to you. The use and further disclosure of the information collected on this Site by our affiliated companies will be governed by this Privacy Policy.

Vendor and Service Providers

We have today, and will in the future have, arrangements with third-party vendors, such as credit card processors, shipping companies and fulfillment services that assist us with the operation of the Site or the services we offer through the Site. Occasionally, we will hire a third party to act on our behalf for projects such as market-research surveys and contest-entry or sweepstakes-entry processing. When you sign up for a service we offer, initiate a transaction, complete a survey or enter a contest or sweepstakes, we may be required to share Personal Information with one or more of our vendors. To protect your privacy, we do not authorize our vendors to retain, use or disclose your Personal Information for any purpose unrelated to the services that they provide for us or our users. To make our Site more valuable to our visitors, we may offer some services and features in conjunction with other service providers ("Service Providers"). For example, we may offer a car buying service, personalized finance and weather information alerts, sweepstakes offers or other promotions through cooperative arrangements with Service Providers that specialize in operating such services and features. If you choose to use these optional services or features, we may provide some of your Personal Information to one or more of our Service Providers. We will not do so without telling you in advance, and you can avoid having us make such disclosures by choosing not to use these services or features of the Site. Some of these Service Providers may also collect their own Personal Information in connection with providing the service. Their use of your information will be subject to the terms of their respective privacy policies, which you can find on their websites or obtain by contacting the Service Providers directly. Please refer to "Who is the Party Collecting Your Personal Information?" for additional information.

Statistical Information

Much of the information we collect is in the form of aggregated statistics, such as the traffic generated by visits on various pages within our Site, and the habits and preferences of our audience. Such aggregated information does not include any information that would identify you personally. We may use such aggregated information and disclose it to third parties as we see fit.

Other Disclosures

We reserve the right to release Personal Information about our visitors when release is appropriate to comply with law or to protect the rights, property or safety of visitors to our Site, the public, our customers, or of Caye Publishing. As our business grows, we may buy or sell various assets. In the event that Caye Publishing, or the bulk of our assets relating to this Site, is acquired by another company, Personal Information about our visitors would be among the transferred assets.

Who is the Party Collecting Your Personal Information?

This Privacy Policy only addresses the use and dissemination of information that we collect from you. To the extent that you disclose any information to other parties, whether through, for example, on-line auctions, chat rooms, forums, personal ads, interactive areas on the Site that allow you to submit and post your own content (such as stories, blogs, photos and videos), or the like, through third-party services or promotions offered on or through the Site, or through other websites throughout the Internet, different policies will apply and Caye Publishing will not be responsible for the use or dissemination of such information. The Site may offer message boards, chat rooms or other forums or interactive areas you can use to communicate with other computer users or Site visitors or to submit and post your own content. If you disclose personal information in one of these forums, this information can be viewed, collected, and used by others. Caye Publishing is not responsible for the use of information you disclose in these forums. We encourage you to consult the forum rules and the Terms of Service regarding the policies and procedures that apply to that portion of the Site.

Our Site may operate as part of a larger group of sites and may carry co-branded pages. In addition, other third-party sites may use the Site's name, Caye Publishing's name, or the name of one of Caye Publishing's affiliated companies. Since Caye Publishing does not control the privacy policies of third parties, you are subject to the privacy policies, if any, of such third parties, and Caye Publishing shall not be responsible for the use or dissemination of your private information by such parties. Therefore, we encourage you to ask questions and review those parties' privacy policies before you disclose your Personal Information to others.

How Can You Opt-Out of Sharing Your Personal Information or Receiving Our Promotional Communications?

We respect your privacy and ability to choose whether to share information with us and third parties. You may choose to "opt-out" of sharing Personal Information by sending your request to Contact Us, or by sending postal mail to:

Caye Publishing, Inc.
Attn: Opt-Out Request
P.O. Box 1593
Keller, TX 76244.

You may "opt-out" altogether from providing Personal Information to us by not registering on the Site, or registering for any Site sponsored promotion, and thereby not providing Personal Information.

Certain portions of the Site and certain services provided on the Site, however, may require registration in order to access or use these areas and services. If you choose not to register or provide certain information, these areas will not be accessible to you.
