Local Devon, may also use such information for content improvement and feedback purposes. We may sell or lease the personal information that you supply to us and we may join together with other businesses to bring retail opportunities to our members. These businesses may include providers of direct marketing services and applications, including lookup and reference, data enhancement, suppression and validation. In addition, Local Devon reserves the right to release current or past member information in the event Local Devon believes that the membership is being or has been used in violation of its AUP the Rules or to commit unlawful acts, if the information is subpoenaed, if Local Devon is sold or acquired, or when Local Devon deems it necessary or appropriate. By agreeing to these terms, you hereby consent to disclosure of any record or communication to any Third Party when Local Devon, in its sole discretion, determines the disclosure to be appropriate.

When such business relationships occur, Local Devon seeks assurances from the other party that they have obtained your permission to transfer the information to Local Devon and provide offers to you.

1.4 Requests for Assistance or Service. Other occasions when Local Devon obtains information from individuals include (1) when an individual is making a claim for a prize or seeking to redeem an incentive offered by Local Devon or by a Third Party, (2) when an individual requests assistance through Local Devon‘s customer service department, and (3) when an individual voluntarily subscribes to a Local Devon’s service or newsletter (together, “Other Information”).

1.5 Cookies, Web Beacons, and Other Info Collected Using Technology. Local Devon currently uses cookie and web beacon technology to associate certain Internet-related information about an individual with information about the individual in our database. Additionally, Local Devon may use other new and evolving sources of information in thefuture (together, “Technology Information”).

(a) Cookies. A cookie is a small amount of data stored on the hard drive of the individual’s computer that allows Local Devon to identify the individual with his or her corresponding data that resides in Local Devon’s database. You may read more about cookies at http://cookiecentral.com. Individuals who use the Websites need to accept cookies in order to use all of the features and functionality of the Websites.

(b) Web Beacons. A web beacon is programming code that can be used to display an image on a web page (by using an img src=”x” programming function — see http://truste.org for more information), but can also be used to transfer an individual’s unique user identification (often in the form of a cookie) to a database and associate the individual with previously acquired information about an individual in a database. This allows Local Devon to track certain websites an individual visits online. Web beacons are used to determine products or services an individual may be interested in, and to track online behavioral habits for marketing purposes. For example, Local Devon might place, with the consent of a Third Party website, a web beacon on the Third Party’s website where cosmetics are sold. When Jane, an individual listed in Local Devon‘s database, visits the cosmetic website, Local Devon receives notice by means of the web beacon that Jane visited the cosmetics site, and Local Devon would then update Jane’s profile with the information that Jane is interested in cosmetics. Local Devon may thereafter present offers of cosmetic related products and services to Jane. In addition to using web beacons on web pages, Local Devon also uses web beacons in email messages sent to individuals listed in Local Devon’s database.

(c) New Technology. The use of technology on the Internet, including cookies and web beacons, is rapidly evolving, as is Local Devon’s use of new and evolving technology. As a result, Local Devon strongly encourages individuals to revisit this policy for any updates regarding its use of technology.

(d) Usage Tracking and Log Files. Local Devon tracks information related to the electronic mailings and web pages viewed by users and subscribers, as well as the hyperlinks clicked by subscribers, while viewing our emails or visiting our websites. Log files are used to track and monitor subscriber usage.

(e) Optional Registration. Local Devon may offer free voluntary registration to potential subscribers. During such registration, the subscriber is required to supply an email address and other personal information. This information is required if the subscriber wants to participate in Local Devon services.

(f) Feedback and Inquiries. You have the ability to contact Local Devon to provide us with their feedback. Local Devon uses this information to respond to you and analyze customer service issues.

(g) IP Address. We collect your IP (Internet Protocol) address to help diagnose problems with our server, and to administer this Site. An IP address is a number that is assigned to your computer when you use the Internet. Your IP address is also used to help identify you during a particular session and to gather broad demographic data.

(h) Clear GIFs. We use a common technology known as a “Clear GIF” or “1-by-1 Pixel” on the Site and in e-mail communications with users. A Clear GIF or “graphic interface format” is a small graphic (in fact, truly a 1×1 pixel) that we (or our partners) place on a page of the Site. We may also occasionally place GIFs in e-mail messages that we send to users. GIFs, which do not contain any information, provide us with important information about how users use the Site and respond to e-mail messages. With this information, we are better able to track the performance of certain promotions and understand the effectiveness of particular creative e-mail presentations. We may also allow our advertisers and promotional partners the ability to use GIFs on the Site solely to track users who link from their respective sites to this Site, but this ability to track such activity does not allow these entities access to user information.

1.6 Outside Information. Local Devon may receive information about individuals from Third Parties or from other sources of information outside of Local Devon including information located in public databases (“Outside Information”).

1.7 Individual Information. As used herein, Individual Information means Survey Information, Third Party List Information, Other Information, Technology Information, and Outside Information, and any other information Local Devon gathers or receives about individuals.

If Local Devon obtains actual knowledge that it has collected personal information about a child under the age of 13, that information will be immediately deleted from our database. Because it does not collect such information, Local Devon has no such information to use or to disclose to Third Parties. Local Devon is designed this policy in order to comply with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”).
