Online Privacy Statement

This Privacy Policy describes the online information collection and use practices of BankNews.com, the website operated by BankNews Media. This Policy does not describe BankNews Media’s offline information collection and use practices, or the practices it employs when collecting information online through means other than the BankNews.com website (for example, if you send us an email message).

This Privacy Policy is current as of July 1, 2013. If we make any substantive changes to this policy, we will announce it on our website. If you have any questions or concerns regarding this policy, contact us by phone at 800-336-1120 or write to us at BankNews Media, P.O. Box 29156, Shawnee Mission, KS 66201. Once the changes have been made, your continued use of the site will constitute your acceptance of the revised Policy.

Information Collected and How It Is Used
Our website collects information when you subscribe to a magazine or newsletter, purchase a product, or participate in an online survey. The information we request may include personally identifiable information, such as name, title, company, address, telephone and fax numbers, and email address, or demographic information, such as hobby, place of birth, etc. We will tell you at the time we collect information whether the information requested is necessary for you to participate in a particular feature.

The information we collect is used to respond to your specific requests, to send you periodic information and special offers from BankNews Media and our sponsors, to provide you with updates on BankNews Media’s offerings and features, to provide you with product information from manufacturers in our database, and to provide our sponsors with aggregate data about our users.

BankNews Media also uses cookies and other electronic information collection mechanisms to obtain information from you, such as your computer's IP address. IP addresses are collected for system administration purposes and for studying how people use our site and how we can improve it. BankNews Media uses cookies to identify registered website users and to automatically give them access to "member only" content areas, and to provide them with access to previously-stored information. BankNews Media also uses cookies to estimate our audience size and usage patterns and to track the aggregate number of customer returns at our website. Finally, BankNews Media uses cookies to help simplify the process of filling out certain forms on our website. You may choose whether or not you accept cookies by changing the settings of your browser.

Sharing Your Information
BankNews Media shares your information with third parties in whose products or services we believe you may be interested. When sharing your information with these third parties, BankNews Media requires that the third parties follow practices substantially similar to those of BankNews Media, and that your information not be further shared with any other third parties. BankNews Media will also share your information if required by law to do so, to comply with applicable laws or valid legal process, or to protect the rights or property of BankNews Media.

BankNews Media may provide users with the opportunity to request additional information from product manufacturers from our advertisers. If you specifically request information from a manufacturer or from one of our advertisers, your contact information will be given to that manufacturer or advertiser, to allow them to decide the best way to fulfill your request.

Options on Use of Information
If you no longer wish for us to share your mailing address or other contact information with our sponsors or other third parties in whose products or services we believe you may be interested, please send us an email at unsubscribe(at)banknews.com. For us to be able to locate your record, your email must include your name, mailing address, and email address. Your request will be processed within 10 days, and we will no longer share your contact information with third parties. Please note that we will not be able to stop third parties from sending you information about their products or services if your information was shared with them before we received your request.

Regarding email specifically, you have the opportunity to elect to stop receiving advertising messages from BankNews Media about our products or services each time you receive such a communication from us.
