through the information you share with us.
However, you may choose to enjoy some of the content and features

as described below, some information is automatically collected when you visit
our Site. In addition, in order for you
to take advantage of certain features and services offered on our Sites, you
may be required to provide us with Personal Information.
The Sites provide certain activities where we gather
Personal Information from users of the Sites, such as an activity that requires
that a user complete a registration process and receive/select a "user name"
and password. Registration to
participate in these Site activities may require the submission of your email
address, zip code, date of birth and other Personal Information. Other Personal Information that may be
submitted include your full name, postal address, phone number, password hints,
gender, personal interests, industry you work in, occupation/role, household
income, communication preferences, preferred news source, and any other
information you provide to us in order to use a Site feature or service. If you choose to make a purchase or sign up for
a paid subscription service, we will ask for additional information, such as
your credit card number and billing address.
You may also provide us with photographs or
video materials that contain personal information about you. In addition, you may have the ability to
opt-in to additional subscription services, such as email news alerts or
promotional and marketing information to be received directly from our
Advertisers (those who pay us to place advertisements on our Sites) which may
require you to provide certain Personal Information.
We do not collect personal information about individuals
except when specifically and knowingly provided by such individuals except
where you submit such information on their behalf (for example, if you submit a
birthday notice with the person's name and email address). For certain activities you may be asked to
submit a person's name, address, phone number or email address.
In addition to the information that you may provide to us, our
servers also automatically collect information about you or your computer,
including your browser
type, operating system and computer monitor resolution; your Internet Protocol

geographic area); sites you visited before and after visiting our Sites; web
pages and advertisements you view and links you click on our Sites; unique
identifiers, including mobile device identification numbers, that can identify
the physical location of such devices in accordance with applicable law;
information collected through cookies, web beacons, and other technologies;

provided in a separate registration page, we do not request for marketing
purposes contact information for a mobile phone, text messaging or any wireless
device that includes a domain name address (such as "wireless.bellsouth.com")
as part of the contact information.
Federal law prohibits the sending of commercial marketing email messages
directly to a wireless device that uses a domain name, unless you have first
given your affirmative consent. We may
inadvertently collect a wireless device number that includes a domain name when
you send us an inquiry or register for a contest or membership club. However, we will not knowingly use that
contact information for sending commercial marketing email. We reserve the right to respond to user
inquiries or requests sent via a wireless device that uses a domain name, as such
messages are not deemed to be commercial marketing email.
