Midwest Today recognizes the privacy concerns of visitors to our site on the Internet ("Midwest Today Online", at www.midtod.com) and the importance of protecting the privacy of personally identifiable information collected from them. As a general policy, no personally identifiable information, such as a visitor's name, address, e-mail address, or telephone number, is automatically collected on our website. Such information is collected only when knowingly and voluntarily submitted, and Midwest Today uses such information only for the purpose for which it was submitted (such as subscription fulfillment) unless we disclose other uses in this Policy or at the time of collection. You will have the opportunity to instruct Midwest Today not to use your personal information for a different purpose, either at the time of collection, in response to a specific request for permission from Midwest Today, or by contacting us at the mailing or e-mail address listed above. We maintain reasonable and appropriate safeguards to ensure the security, integrity and privacy of such information in our possession.
Midwest Today does not knowingly collect personally indentifiable information from children under 13.
Midwest Today may collect and disclose non-personal user information (for example, IP addresses) in aggregate form. An IP address is a number given to a user by a Web Server. Examples of information provided by an IP address include service provider, type of browser and type of system used. Midwest Today may use this information to make its site better and more responsive to the needs of the user. This non-personal information may also be shared with third parties for marketing, advertising or research purposes. An IP address is not used to obtain personal information about a user.
COLLECTION AND USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
Midwest Today collects personally identifiable information for a number of purposes, which are described below. In addition to the uses indicated in each of the following paragraphs, Midwest Today may use personal information you submit to this site for research, advertising, and marketing purposes, including sending you information about products and services offered by Midwest Today we think you will be interested in. We may also share your information with other parts of our company, with our advertisers and with business partners so they, too, can inform you about products and services we think you will find interesting.
When we collect your personal information you will have the ability to tell Midwest Today not to contact you about our other products or services, and/or not to share your information with affiliated companies or third parties. If you want you information removed from our database at any time, you can contact us at the mailing or e-mail address indicated above.

OBTAINING A SUBSCRIPTION OR SINGLE COPIES
Visitors to our site who want to receive a subscription to or single copies of Midwest Today magazine can submit personal information to the site that makes possible a follow-up contact by a circulation representative. The information is used only for this purpose.
Midwest Today may conduct on-line marketing and/or opinion surveys that ask participants for demographic and other similar data (such as zip code, age, income and education level). This information is used to make Midwest Today more responsive to our readers and may be shared in aggregate, non-personal form with our advertisers and business partners.
Midwest Today collects e-mail addresses and other personally identifying information in order to send users newsletters and other materials they have requested, and in connection with surveys Midwest Today relies on other companies to register users for its newletter service and to actually transmit the newsletter or other materials to users.
In some cases, Midwest Today has access to personally identifiable information that is submitted in order to fulfill the purchases our visitors make through our on line shopping services. Midwest Today may use this information in non-personal, aggregate form to make our site better and more responsive to visitors' needs.

LINKS TO OTHER SITES
Midwest Today may establish relationships with reputable business partners that allow visitors to the Midwest Today Online site to link directly to sites operated by these partners.
