Any of the information we collect from you may be used in the following ways:

How do we protect customer information?

We use a Secure Server for collecting personal and credit card information. The secure server layer (SSL) encrypts (scrambles) all of the information you enter before it is transmitted over the Internet and sent to us. Furthermore, all of the customer data we collect is protected against unauthorized access.

After a transaction, your private information will not be stored on our servers.

We use cookies to understand and save your preferences for future visits.

If you prefer, you can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies via your browser settings. Like most websites, if you turn your cookies off, some of our services may not function properly. However, you can still place orders over the telephone or by contacting customer service.

Disclosure of collected information to outside parties:

We do not sell, trade, or rent your personal information to others. Cape Cod Life Publications does not provide any information to third-party vendors.

Cape Cod Life Publications may release account information when we believe, in good faith, that such a release is reasonably necessary to (i) comply with law, (ii) enforce or apply the terms of any of our user agreements or (iii) protect the rights, property or safety of Cape Cod Life Publications, our users, or others.

We may co-sponsor sweepstakes and contests with other companies. Information collected may be provided to the participating companies, but will not be sold, traded or rented to outside parties.
