Personally Identifiable Collection of Information
You may voluntarily provide County Lines Magazine with personally identifiable information such as your name, e-mail address, mailing address, telephone number, fax number, credit card information and information about your interest in various products, programs and services, also known as "Personal Information." Examples of how you may provide this information are: volunteering your e-mail address to sign up for newsletters, volunteering your information when you subscribe to County Lines Magazine, volunteering your ISP address, purchasing products or services from our website, participating in blogs, posting comments, participating in forums, chat rooms or message boards, sending a letter to the editor, expressing an opinion on the website, entering a sweepstakes or contest, or completing a survey.
To participate in various forums and portions of the website, users may be required to submit a valid e-mail address, demographic details and areas of interest. Such information may be used to select editorial topics and for screening out users who leave inappropriate comments.
You may be able to sign up for certain promotions, newsletters or affiliated publications on behalf of or for delivery to third parties. You may order a service as a gift for a third party and send such gift directly to the third party through a submission of the third party’s name, address, e-mail address and telephone number. This also constitutes personally identifiable information.
If you should make a purchase on our website, including a subscription for a magazine, we will typically ask for your name, address, mailing address, phone number, credit card number and the expiration date. If the product or subscription is provided or shipped by a third party, we will pass on to the third party the information needed to fulfill your order.
Promotions and Contests
County Lines Magazine may from time to time sponsor sweepstakes, contests or other events that require the collection, processing, and storage of individual contact information plus demographic information. These promotions may also ask registrants to answer survey questions. Any personally identifiable information collected through promotions will be treated as personal information. No purchase is necessary to enter a County Lines Magazine promotion.
County Lines Magazine may co-sponsor promotions with other companies, in which case any information collected is likely to be shared with other participating sponsors, who may use this information. A registrant’s personal contact and demographic information will not be released to any third party organization other than named sponsors without the registrant’s consent.
Surveys and Polls
County Lines Magazine will from time to time conduct anonymous surveys and polls of users to obtain aggregate demographic information about the users. Such information may be compiled and shared in the aggregate with advertisers and other third parties but no personal details will be traceable or associated with specific individuals unless otherwise disclosed in any survey or poll rules.
Should County Lines Magazine request other personally identifiable information from you, you are not required to share any such information to gain access to our website. You can refuse to provide any such information.

Third Party Advertisements
Third party advertisements that appear on County Lines Magazine are sometimes delivered (or "served") directly to users by third party advertisers. The advertisers may automatically receive your IP address when this happens. These third party advertisers may also download cookies to your computer, or use other technologies to measure the effectiveness of their ads and to personalize advertising content. Cookies will allow the advertiser to recognize your computer each time they send you an advertisement. In this way, they may compile information about where individuals using your computer or browser saw their advertisements and determine which advertisements are clicked. County Lines Magazine does not have access to or control of the cookies that may be placed by the third party advertisers. Third party advertisers have no access to your contact information stored on the site unless you choose to share it with them.
Again, if you would like to avoid cookies, your web browser may have an option that enables you to disable or not accept cookies. It should be noted, however, that should you disable or not accept cookies, portions of the Site may not properly function.
County Lines Magazine reserves the right to update this policy statement at any time, with or without notice to users.
