We respect your privacy! We are committed to treating all information you provide to us as personal and confidential. We will not share, sell, or exploit any personal information provided to us to any other company or third party, with the sole exception of information provided to us on our Mailing List signup form, where we will only share your information with the company that maintains our mailing list (see Outside Organizations below).
In order to improve your experience visiting our site, Blue Monocle partners with some other companies:
To better understand how visitors use our site, Blue Monocle uses Google Analytics to analyze visitors. The tool uses "cookies," which are text files placed on your computer, to collect standard Internet log information and visitor behavior information in an anonymous form. The information generated by the cookie about your use of our website (including IP address) is transmitted to Google. This information is then used to evaluate visitors' use of our website and to compile statistical reports about our website. We will never (and will not allow any third party to) use the statistical analytics tool to track or to collect any Personally Identifiable Information (PII) of visitors to our site. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. Neither we nor Google will link, or seek to link, an IP address with the identity of a computer user. We will not associate any data gathered from this site with any Personally Identifiable Information from any source, unless you explicitly submit that information via a fill-in form on our website.
We use MailChimp for our email list signup and to create and send emails to those who have signed up on our email list. The only information we collect is your email address, and, optionally, your first and last name. When you sign up for our mailing list your information will be stored on a secure MailChimp server. We will not share, sell, or otherwise distribute your email address and/or name to any other company or 3rd Party. When you sign up for our mailing list your email will be used for the express purpose of sending you our periodic newsletter and will not be used to contact you for any other reason. MailChimp will not, under any circumstances, contact you, market to you, sell or share your information with any other party.
