Referencing it in our Terms of Use; and
Incorporating it into our contracts, agreements, and other documents as necessary or appropriate.

THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT
Spokane Headlines collects some information that is personal (i.e., information that identifies an individual either alone or in combination with other data). Spokane Headlines also collects non- personal information that does not, on its own, identify an individual person. When non-personal information is combined with other information so that it does identify an individual person, we treat that combination as personally identifiable information (“PII”).

Spokane Headlines obtains personal information when you or someone acting on your behalf provides it to us. We also collect information when you use Spokane Headlines services.
The following are examples of the type of personal information that may be collected directly from you (or someone acting on your behalf):

Contact information (including name, email address, mailing address, telephone, and fax number);

Email and other information provided in connection with the delivery of Spokane Headlines (“Headlines”) services;
Information about transactions with us (such as email history) and use of our services; and Username, password, and other information used to verify identity.

Activities on the Site and usage patterns of Headlines services (including referring URLs, dates and times of website visits, and clickstream data such as information commonly recorded in web server logs) may be the type of information that may be collected by Spokane Headlines from your web browser or from interactions with our Headlines services.

COOKIES
Spokane Headlines uses “cookies” to remember user preferences and to maximize the performance of the Site and services. Additionally, cookies help us to identify returning users.
Please note the information gathered by cookies may become necessary to provide some Spokane Headlines services. In the event that use of cookies becomes necessary, Spokane Headlines cannot provide such services to users who do not give their consent to the data processing carried out through cookies or whose browsers are set to reject all cookies.

Cookies may also be used to control the type and frequency of ads, promotions, or other marketing messages the customer views. These ads may be placed by Spokane Headlines or third-party advertising companies which are our vendors. Spokane Headlines also uses “web beacons” (small transparent image files) to count visitors to the Site and analyze how visitors use the Site. The information collected is generally anonymized and is not used to identify any particular user.

Spokane Headlines also maintains log files of the traffic on the Site to record the information you or your browser send when you visit the Site. These log files may include information such as your requests, IP address, browser type, browser language, the date and time of your request, and one or more cookies that may uniquely identify your system.

PERSONAL INFORMATION WE SHARE
Spokane Headlines may share personal information with:
Other companies for the purposes described in this Policy, such as to: (i) provide services and joint content; (ii) help detect and prevent potentially illegal acts and violations of our policies; and (iii) guide decisions about Spokane Headlines products, services, and communications;

Authorized service providers and online business affiliates who perform services for Spokane Headlines (including data storage, marketing, and fraud investigations) based on Spokane Headlines’ instructions. These third parties may only use or disclose personal information obtained from Spokane Headlines to perform services on our behalf or comply with legal obligations;
Third parties with your consent. Spokane Headlines does not share your personal information with non-affiliated third parties for their own marketing use without your permission; and
Other business entities legally related to Spokane Headlines or any third party that may take over all or part of Spokane Headlines’ functions in the future (provided that such party agrees to use such personal information in a manner that is consistent with this Policy). In the event that Spokane Headlines is involved in a bankruptcy, merger, acquisition, reorganization or sale of assets, your information may be sold or transferred as part of that transaction. This Policy will apply to your information as transferred to the new entity.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Policy, Spokane Headlines may also preserve or disclose your information if Spokane Headlines believes that it is reasonably necessary to comply with a law, regulation, legal process, or governmental request; to protect the safety of any person; to address fraud, security or technical issues; or to protect Spokane Headlines’ rights or property. However, nothing in this Policy is intended to limit any legal defenses or objections that you may have to a third party’s request (including a government’s request), to disclose your information.

When Spokane Headlines shares personal information with a third party, the third party must contractually agree to comply with privacy and security standards at least as stringent as Spokane Headlines’ when we are handling similar data. When you provide data directly to the third party, the processing is based on their standards (which may not be the same as Spokane Headlines’) and your own independent relationship with that provider.

SECURITY
Spokane Headlines uses administrative, organizational, technical, and physical safeguards to protect the personal information it collects and processes. Spokane Headlines’ security controls are designed to maintain an appropriate level of data confidentiality, integrity, and availability.

Spokane Headlines or Spokane Headlines’ online business affiliate handles payment card data in a manner consistent with the Payment Card Industry’s Data Security Standards (PCI-DSS).
