This Policy applies to all web sites and services owned or provided by RM and its subsidiaries, which we refer to here collectively as "RM Sites". RM Sites include, but are not limited to, GroomsMagazine.com, PromDude.com, PromChick.com, ChristianGroom.com, as well as other RM-branded services. From time to time we may add new sites, domain names or services to those listed above. Please note that this Policy applies only to sites owned and services maintained by RM or its corporate subsidiaries and not to web sites or services provided by other companies or organizations to which we link.
The Policy is accessible through the RM Sites in several ways, including from a link entitled "Privacy" at the bottom of the GroomsMagazine.com home page. You acknowledge that this Policy may change over time. If we make a material change to the terms of this Policy, we will give you 30 days notice of those changes ("Notice Period") through reasonably prominent disclosure, including via email. However, you should check the RM Sites (and GroomsMagazine.com in particular) regularly for these and other important announcements. Your continued use of the RM Sites following the Notice Period will signify that you agree to these changes.
The RM Sites are not directed to children under the age of 13. The RM Sites prohibit registration by, and RM will not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from, anyone under 13. This requirement will be posted at points of data collection within the RM Sites, such as registration for services.
Note to parents: RM encourages parents to spend time online with their children. We also urge parents to instruct their children never to give out their real names, addresses or phone numbers without parental permission when using the Internet.
Information Collection, Storage and Use
We refer to information that identifies an individual as "Personal Information." In general, RM collects Personal Information from users of the RM Sites in connection with access to certain online areas or services, including during (i) registration for certain online community services and tools such as message boards, chat rooms or other community services; (ii) registration for special communications, such as email updates and newsletters; (iii) subscription registration; (iv) user surveys; and (v) events, sweepstakes, contests or promotions. Your Personal Information is stored on RM computer servers (or those of its service providers) located in the United States.
We may gather data about the areas of the RM Sites you visit or access. We do not use any of this navigational data about where you "as an individual user" go on RM Sites or share any of this data with third parties. However, we do use and share navigational data in aggregate, non-personal form to understand how our users as a group use the RM Sites.
Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information in public areas of an RM Site, such as the member home pages and message boards, your information can be viewed and possibly used by others. We advise users to be especially careful in such public areas about disclosing Personal Information, such as full name, home address, or phone number.
Below are more details about the Personal Information we, or third parties may gather from you and how we may use it.
A. Email Newsletters. RM offers email newsletters to its registered users. We will use your email address to send you only the specific newsletter(s) that you signed up for. If you want to update your email address or stop receiving a newsletter, follow the procedures to unsubscribe at the bottom of any newsletter we send.
B. Membership Information. When you register for membership on an RM Site, we will ask you for certain minimum required information, such as your name, birth date, gender, email address and zip code. We may also ask for additional information about you and your interests. We do this so we can better understand your preferences and tailor the RM Sites to suit you better. The more information you volunteer, the more we can tailor the RM Site and promotions to your interests. Additionally, third-party service providers may require you to assent to their privacy party as a condition to receiving their service.
- Service Providers. We offer our members other services provided by third parties such as email and user pages, among others. When you register for membership on an RM Site or activate a related service by clicking on a particular service link (i.e. email) on an RM Site, you may be automatically registered to receive the services we offer and some of your Personal Information may be transferred from RM to those third-party service providers. By becoming a member, you authorize us and our third-party service providers to send you email updates and information about promotions and special offers. We take care to require that our third-party service providers only use our member's data as necessary to provide the particular service and to give you updates on that service provider's products and services.
- Co-registration with Other Sites. As a member, we offer you the ability to co-register with select third-party partner sites. In some instances where RM provides co-registration, the co-registration partners allow you to opt-out of their membership. If you choose to co-register with our partners and accept their terms of service, then you are automatically registered as a member of their select web sites and your Personal Information is transferred to those organizations. As a result, you may receive information from one of these web sites as any of their members would. We advise you to review the privacy and data collection policies of the third-party partner sites for further information. In order to cancel your membership with any of these partners you will need to go directly to the partner's site.
- Advertisers. RM may send you emails on behalf of our advertisers. If you opt to receive information from our advertisers they may use your Personal Information to send you advertisements or other notices, via email or postal mail, and it is possible that your information may be shared with others.
- Other Parties. We occasionally provide third parties with Personal Information limited only to your physical address in order to send you promotional mailings.
C. Email Updates to Members. If you so elect at registration, we may periodically send you promotional email about products or services offered by the RM Sites, our partners and advertisers. If you want to update your email address or stop receiving these types of promotional emails, please follow the procedures to unsubscribe at the bottom of any email we send you..
E. Surveys and User Research. RM conducts email and web-delivered surveys from time to time, as well as instant polls, to gather information about our users. Taking these surveys and polls is entirely optional. You have no obligation to respond to them. We share only the aggregate results of these surveys, not Personal Information, with our advertisers and partners to help them better understand our services and monitor the reach of their advertising or other offerings on our service. We also use some of the Personal Information that you provide in these surveys to help us understand your interests and to make the RM Sites more useful to you.
G. Purchase of Products or Services. When you purchase products or services from or through the RM Sites we may require Personal Information such as name, address, telephone number and billing information, including credit card, debit card or bank account data. RM will not disclose your Personal Information, including billing information, except to the extent necessary to complete your transaction, for example during an online purchase or where needed to deliver a product or service you ordered.
H. Sites You Visit. As you access our Partner Sites and browse around the RM Sites, RM may store information about which pages and which Partner Sites you visit and other information presented in your browser's URL address line. RM will use this information to help determine what our users are most interested in.
I. Sharing Non-Personal Information. RM may share information that is not Personal Information -- meaning non-personal, aggregate, or summary, information regarding our users -- with other third parties not mentioned in this Policy. This kind of information does not identify you individually.
J. Merger or Acquisition. In the event of a merger, acquisition, reorganization, sale of all or substantially all of its assets, or the sale of an individual website owned by RM, RM may transfer your Personal Information to a third party as a part of such merger, acquisition, reorganization, or sale.
Access to Other Sites through RM
Our Partner Sites. You should be aware that when you are on an RM Site, you will have the opportunity to visit, or link to, other sites associated with RM. These sites are identified as our "Partner Sites". These sites are not owned or operated by RM, but are part of a larger network of sites with which the RM Sites share content and advertising opportunities. We do not share your Personal Information with these Partner Sites.
Information Storage and Security
Your Personal Information is stored on RM computer servers (or those of its service providers) located in the United States. We protect your Personal Information with technical, administrative and physical safeguards to protect against loss, unauthorized access, destruction, misuse, modification and improper disclosure. No computer system or information can ever be fully protected against every possible hazard. But RM is committed to providing reasonable and appropriate security controls to protect our RM Sites and all Personal Information against foreseeable hazards.
Notwithstanding these security measures, please be aware that when you submit Personal Information to the RM Sites over the Internet, the information may travel over many systems that are not under the RM's control. We take the protection of user data very seriously and to that end take reasonable safeguards to prevent interception of any Personal Information. In the case of shopping pages, for example, the credit card information you submit is protected by secure servers.
Accessing, Correcting and Updating Your Information
To access, correct or update your account or other Personal Information such as your city or interests, please use the "Edit profile page" at the RM Site on which you are registered.
