Privacy policy

Publisher Database strives to ensure the security and confidentiality of the personal information you provide us. Personal information means data that can be linked to a specific individual, such as your address, telephone number, e-mail address and credit card number.

This privacy policy outlines the types of personal information we gather, as well as some of the steps we take to safeguard it.

Please note that we review our privacy policy from time to time, and we may make periodic changes to the policy in connection with that review. Therefore, you may wish to bookmark this page and/or periodically review this page to make sure you have the current version.

Automated data collection

Some information is collected automatically every time you visit publisherdatabase.com (e.g., cookies and server logs). You can always choose to not receive a cookie file by enabling your Web browser to refuse cookies or prompt you before accepting a cookie. Be advised that, by refusing to accept a cookie, you may not be able to access some areas of the site.

Server logs include data collected from your computer's Web browser, which may include your IP address, operating system, browser identification, files/pages requested, and referrer Web site.

In addition, information may be collected by third-party advertising companies. Our current advertising partner is Google, selected due to their own trustworthy privacy policy. Publisher Database may choose other advertising partners in the future.

Opt-in data collection

When browsing our site, you are not required to provide any personal information unless and until you choose to become a registered member or paid subscriber. We do not knowingly allow memberships by any person under the age of thirteen.

If you choose to become a registered member, at a minimum you must provide a unique login name, password, and e-mail address. The email address is used to verify the account (by sending an email that contains a confirmation code), and may also be used for alerts, announcements, and messages from the webmaster. These settings can be controlled on the profile page.

If you choose to become a paid subscriber, the company we have contracted to process your credit card will request the card number as well as information to validate your purchase.

Additional information

Please note that we do not rent or sell your personal information to other companies or individuals. We may share such information if we are required by law or have a good faith belief that access, preservation or disclosure of such information is reasonably necessary to protect Publisher Database, its members, or the public.

In the event of a transfer of ownership, such as acquisition by or merger with another company, we will provide notice before any personal information is transferred and becomes subject to a different privacy policy.

We may share aggregated information with others. Examples of this include average payments by publishers, and overall rating scores given to magazines. In addition, information entered into the public profile of each market will be viewable by all members. A market is a gallery, magazine, or other venue for writers and artists to showcase their work.

We take appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of data.

Access to your personal information is restricted to Publisher Database staff and forum moderators who need to know that information in order to operate, develop, or improve our services.
