Welcome to the Novelty website (“the Site”). We know how much visitors like you value privacy, and we have created this privacy policy to ensure that you understand our policies and procedures, what personally identifiable information you must provide if you wish to use the Site and, ultimately, just how we use such personally identifiable information.

This policy applies only to the website located at www.noveltymag.co.uk , and not to any other website or service. If you do not agree with this policy, then you should not use the Site.

Personally Information Collected

Novelty may collect and store personally identifiable information about you if you voluntarily submit such information to Novelty. Personally identifiable information may include your name and email address.

Non-Personally Identifiable Information Collected

Examples of this type of information include the type of internet browser you are using, the type of computer operating system application software and peripherals you are using, the domain name of the website from which you linked to our Site and your browsing habits on and usage of the Site. Non-Personally identifiable information may also include personally identifiable information that has been aggregated so that no one individual is specifically identifiable (such as, how many users in a particular city access the Site).

How We Use Your Personal Information

We do not sell or share your personally identifiable information with third parties without your consent.

Information obtained in connection with the Site may be intermingled with and used by us in conjunction with information obtained through sources other than the Site, including both offline and online sources.

We reserve the right to transfer any information to our successors in business and purchasers of Site assets or a particular division or line of business.

We also reserve the right to access and/or disclose any information as required by courts or administrative agencies and to the extent necessary to permit us to investigate suspected fraud, harassment or other violations of any law, rule or regulation, the Site rules or policies, or the rights of third parties or to investigate any suspected conduct which Novelty deems improper.

How We Use Your Non-Personally Identifiable Information

We may share non-personally identifiable information with third parties for any number of reasons, including advertising, promotional and/or other purposes.

Cookies

We may use cookies and similar technologies to collect non-personally identifiable information from you and to customize your use of the Site. A cookie is a small data file that certain web sites write to your hard drive when you visit them. We may also use web bugs, clear gifs and similar technologies that collect data similar to that collected by a cookie. A cookie file can contain various types of information, including a user ID that the site uses to track the pages you have visited.

Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies; however, you can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or indicate when a cookie is being sent or you can flush your browser of cookies from time to time. (Note: you may need to consult the help area of your browser application for instructions.) If you choose to disable cookies or refuse to accept a cookie, you may not be able to utilize all features of the Site.

At times, some of our future advertisers and their ad service providers set cookies when you click their advertising banners. While we use cookies in other parts of the Site (as discussed above), cookies received with banner ads are collected by those advertisers and their ad service providers. The advertiser’s privacy policy and/or that of its service provider will govern the use of this information and Novelty is not responsible for the privacy practices of such advertiser or ad service provider.

Opt Out Procedures

You have the option to opt out of receiving information from Novelty. This opt out messaging will appear at the bottom of every email that is sent out to you by Novelty in relation to this Site. If you wish us to delete your personally identifiable information from our database of active users, send us a request marked “Privacy”, address as follows: hello@noveltymag.co.uk

However, Novelty is not responsible for removing information from third-party lists or databases of any kind if we have shared your information with such third parties as permitted by this policy.

Please note that, notwithstanding the fact that we may have removed your information from our list of active users, we reserve the right to keep any information submitted or collected for business reasons, such as archiving data.

Security

We are committed to taking reasonable steps to ensure the security of your information. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the appropriate use of information, we have put into place physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to help safeguard and secure the information we collect online. However, due to the inherent open nature of the Internet, we cannot guarantee that communications between you and us or information stored on the Site or our servers, will be completely free from unauthorized access by third parties such as hackers and your use of the Site demonstrates your assumption of this risk.

This Site is not intended for users under the age of 16, and we have no intention of collecting personally identifiable information from children (i.e., individuals under the age of 16). If a parent or guardian learns that a child has provided us with personally identifiable information, that child’s parent or guardian should send us a request marked “Privacy — Urgent” to hello@noveltymag.co.uk if they would like the information submitted by the child deleted from our database.
