Children must get permission from their parents before sending any information about themselves (such as their names, e-mail addresses, and phone numbers) over the Internet, to us or to anyone else. Cox Target Media will not knowingly allow anyone under 13 to register with any of its sites, to order Cox Target Media services or products online, or to access those features that require registration.
The information gathered by Cox Target Media falls into two categories: (1) information voluntarily supplied by visitors to our Web sites through optional registration or utilization of the online account information or transactional portions of the Web sites; or (2) tracking information gathered as visitors navigate through our sites.
To make use of certain features on our Web sites (such as the online account information or the online ordering features), customers need to register and receive their Cox Target Media Personal Password. Certain information will be requested as part of the registration process. In order for Cox Target Media to provide secure access to customer accounts or to permit customers to access and modify their account information and service features, Cox Target Media will need to ask for certain personal information such as your name, address, Cox Target Media cable account number and e-mail address. The provision of this information and the corresponding assignment by Cox Target Media of a personal password for each site registrant, will enable Cox Target Media to allow customers to take advantage of the online account information and e-commerce features of the Cox Target Media Web site. In addition, the information you supply will help Cox Target Media to offer you more personalized features, to tailor its Web sites to your interests and make them more useful to you.
The more you tell us about yourself, the more value we can offer you. Supplying such information is entirely voluntary. But it is necessary if you want to take advantage of some of the more advanced subscriber services offered by the Cox Target Media Web sites. For example, if you are moving or are new to the area, we can provide you with useful information about the Cox Target Media services available in your neighborhood - but only if we know your address. In addition, if you want to enjoy the advantages of using the Web site to order new Cox Target Media services or upgrade existing services, you need to provide Cox Target Media with sufficient information to identify the correct account, authenticate you as the account holder and provide secure access to your account information.
To help make the Cox Target Media Web sites more responsive to the needs of Cox Target Media customers and other visitors, Cox Target Media employs a standard feature of browser software, called a "cookie," to assign each visitor a unique, random number -- a type of user ID -- that resides on each visitor's computer. The cookie doesn't provide the identity of the visitor, just the computer that a visitor uses to access the Cox Target Media sites. The cookie permits Cox Target Media to recognize a visitor and his or her access privileges on the Cox Target Media sites, as well as to track site usage. By using cookies, Cox Target Media can tailor its Web sites to the needs of its visitors and to deliver the personalized services that enable customers to access online account information and order pay-per-view movies online. In addition, Cox Target Media uses the site usage information it collects to help tailor the site to the needs of its visitors. You can set your browser not to accept cookies, but if you do, you may not be able to take advantage of the personalized features enjoyed by other visitors to our sites.
Cox Target Media's web servers automatically log your IP address - which establishes your computer's location on the Internet - for purposes of systems administration and troubleshooting. We use this information to deliver our web pages to you upon request and to measure traffic within our sites. In addition, we may use IP address information to tailor specific offers or information to certain general classes of IP addresses. Cox Target Media does not link IP addresses to personally identifiable information.
Cox Target Media may perform statistical analyses of visitor behavior in order to measure general customer interest in various areas of the site and to measure the success of certain features of the site. In performing these statistical analyses, Cox Target Media may provide data to third parties in aggregate form only. Personal information about individual visitors will not be provided to third parties, except to the extent that such disclosure is necessary in order to permit Cox Target Media to fulfill a transaction initiated by the customer or otherwise to conduct legitimate business activities related to the cable service or other services provided by Cox Target Media to its customers. Cox Target Media will provide to a subscriber a summary of his or her personal information provided at registration upon request and verification of the subscriber's identity. Upon request, Cox Target Media will remove any subscriber's information from it database, or allow any subscriber to opt out of further contact or to change/correct personal information that the subscriber states is erroneous.
All information gathered on any Cox Target Media Web site is encrypted for storage within a Cox Target Media-controlled database. However, as effective as encryption technology is, no security system is impenetrable. We cannot guarantee the security of our database, nor can we guarantee that information you supply won't be intercepted while being transmitted to us over the Internet.
Any information you include in a message you post to any chatroom, forum or other public posting area is available to anyone with Internet access. If you don't want people to know your e-mail address, for example, don't include it in any message you post publicly. In addition, Cox Target Media is not responsible for the content or the privacy policies of Web sites to which it may link.
Of course, our use of information gathered while the current policy is in effect will always be consistent with the current policy, even if we change that policy later.
