be of interest to you.

sources to third parties whose practices are not covered by this privacy statement (e.g., other marketers,
magazine publishers, retailers, participatory databases, and non-profit organizations) that want to market

the publisher or provider to the extent necessary to fulfill your request. They may contact you with

the information for any purpose other than to carry out the services they are performing for SEMCO.
We may transfer your personally identifiable information to other SEMCO offices for internal management

cannot assure you that personally identifiable information that we collect will never be disclosed in a

information about themselves for purposes of correcting possible factual errors in the data.

To enhance your experience on our Services, we may place "cookies" on your computer or device.
Cookies are small text files that we place in your computer or device to store your preferences. Cookies,
by themselves, do not tell us your e-mail address or other personal information unless you choose to
provide this information to us by, for example, registering with one of our Services. Once you choose to
provide us with personal information, this information may be linked to the data stored in the cookie. A
cookie assigns a unique numerical identifier to your Web browser or device, and may enable us to
recognize you as the same user who has used our Services, and relate your use of the Services to other

to save your password in password-protected areas, to enable shopping carts, or to tailor content or
product and service offerings).

Local Shared Objects: Local shared objects, such as .Flash cookies,. also may be stored on your computer
or device. Local shared objects operate a lot like cookies, but cannot be managed in the same way.
Depending on how local shared objects are enabled on your computer or device, you may be able to
manage them using software settings. For information on managing Flash cookies, for example,
HTML 5: HTML5, the language some Web sites are coded in, may be used to store information on your

us manage our Services, such as by giving us information about how our Services are being used by our
visitors, how they can be improved, and to customize them for our users.
Cache Cookies: Cache cookies, such as eTags, may be used to identify your computer or device as the
same computer or device that visited a Service or Services in the past.
Web Beacons: Our websites may also use small pieces of code called "web beacons" or "clear gifs" to
collect anonymous and aggregate advertising metrics, such as counting page views, promotion views, or
advertising responses. A web beacon is an electronic image called a single-pixel or clear GIF. Web
beacons can recognize certain types of information, such as a user's cookie number, time and date of a
page view, and description of the page where the web beacon is placed. These web beacons may be
used to deliver cookies that conform to our cookie policy above.
These tracking technologies may be deployed by us and/or by our service providers or partners on our
behalf. These technologies enable us to assign a unique number to you, and relate your Service usage
information to other information about you, including your personal information. We may match
information collected from you through different means or at different times, including both personal
information and Service usage information, and use such information along with offline and online
information obtained from other sources (including third parties) such as demographic information and
updated contact information (where that information has been lawfully disclosed to us) for the purposes
of learning more about you so we can provide you with relevant content.
Our Commitment to Security
We have put in place appropriate administrative, technical, and physical safeguards to help prevent
unauthorized access, maintain data security and correctly use the information we collect. No system can
be completely secure, however, and we do not guarantee that unauthorized disclosures and access will
not happen.

any subsequent updates.

irrelevant for legitimate purposes, or are being processed in a way which infringes any applicable legal
requirements, by contacting us as set out in the "How to Contact Us" section below. At our election,

identity and to provide other details before we are able to provide you with any information, correct any
inaccuracies, or delete any information. Your right to review, update, correct, and delete your personal
information may be limited, subject to the law or your jurisdiction: (i) if your requests are abusive or
unreasonably excessive, (ii) where the rights or safety of another person or persons would be encroached
upon, or (iii) if the information or material you request relates to existing or anticipated legal proceedings

investigation of possible unlawful activity. Your right to review, update, correct and delete your
information is subject to our records retention policies and applicable law, including any statutory
retention requirements.
Retention of Personal Information
