Privacy Policy

Your privacy is important to us.

That’s why we made this privacy policy available for you to read, so you could learn more about how we protect your privacy. (Or, you could just read it for funzies. Whatevs.)

Website Visitors

Like most websites, sesimag.com collects non-personally identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Sesi’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Sesi’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Sesi may release non-personally identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Sesi also collects potentially personally identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments. Sesi only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally identifying information as described below.

Gathering of Personally Identifying Information

Certain visitors to sesimag.com choose to interact in ways that require Sesi to gather personally identifying information. The amount and type of information that Sesi gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who subscribe to the print magazine to provide their names and addresses. Those who engage in transactions with Sesi – by purchasing a subscription or single copies of the print magazine – are redirected to PayPal and asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Sesi collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction. If a person chooses to interact with Sesi on any of its social media profiles or sends us feedback in an e-mail, such feedback may be made public for others to read. Contest/sweepstakes entries, survey participation, and newsletter sign-ups are other examples of when we may collect personally identifying information. You can always refuse to supply personally identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent you from engaging in certain website- and/or social media-related activities.

The e-mails that we send may also contain tags that allow us to track views and clicks to determine what types of information/content may interest you. These types of tags may also contain personally identifying information that may be shared with others in the same ways described above. You can always unsubscribe from an e-mail list if you choose to do so.

Aggregated Statistics

Sesi may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to sesimag.com. For instance, Sesi may monitor the most popular posts/pages on the site or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. Sesi may display this information publicly or provide it to others.

Protection of Certain Personally Identifying Information

Sesi may disclose potentially personally identifying and personally identifying information to its employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Sesi’s behalf or to provide services available at Sesimag.com, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using sesimag.com, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Sesi will not rent or sell potentially personally identifying and personally identifying information to anyone. Sesi will disclose potentially personally identifying and personally identifying information in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Sesi believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Sesi, third parties, or the public at large. If you have supplied your e-mail address when subscribing or purchasing single copies of Sesi magazine, Sesi may occasionally send you an e-mail to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with us. Sesi (via WordPress.com and PayPal) takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Cookies

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. Sesi uses cookies to help identify and track visitors, their usage of Sesi’s website, and their website access preferences. Sesimag.com visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before visiting, with the drawback that certain features may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

If Sesi, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Sesi goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Sesi may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

Ads

Ads appearing on sesimag.com may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by Sesi and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Comments

Comments and other content submitted to our Akismet anti-spam service are not saved on our servers unless they were marked as false positives, in which case we store them long enough to use them to improve the service to avoid future false positives.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, Sesi may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in Sesi’s sole discretion. Sesi encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
