1. Personal Information

- Non-Account Activity. You can read City And Press articles and comments without having a City And Press Account.

- Account-Related Activity. Certain other activities on City And Press, such as making recommendations, require you to have a City And Press Account. We ask for some personal information when you create a City And Press Account, including your email address and a password, which is used to protect your account from unauthorized access. A City And Press Account allows you to access many of our services that require registration.

- Usage Information. We may record information about your usage, such as when you use City And Press, your recommendations, and your comments. If you are logged in, we may associate that information with your account.

- Published Content. Any personal information or textual content that you voluntarily disclose online (on comments area, within your profile pages, etc.) becomes publicly available and can be collected and used by others.

- We use both your personally identifiable information and certain non-personally-identifiable information (such as anonymous user usage data, cookies, IP addresses, browser type, network information, etc.) to improve the quality and design of City And Press Sites and to create new features, promotions, functionality, and services by storing, tracking, analyzing, and processing user preferences and trends, as well as user activity and communications.

5. Third-party Advertisers, Links to Other Sites

City And Press allows other companies, called third-party ad servers or ad networks, to serve advertisements within City And Press Sites. These third-party ad servers or ad networks use technology to send, directly to your browser, the advertisements and links that appear on City And Press Sites. They automatically receive your IP address when this happens. They may also use other technologies (such as cookies, JavaScript) to measure the effectiveness of their advertisements and to personalize the advertising content you see.

City And Press does not provide any personally identifiable information to these third-party ad servers or ad networks without your consent or except as part of a specific program or feature for which you will have the ability to opt-in or opt-out.
