Privacy Policy

At Atlantic Media, Inc. (“Atlantic Media”), we want you to enjoy and benefit from our website and online services secure in the knowledge that we have implemented fair information practices designed to protect your privacy.  Our privacy policy below describes the information we collect, how we use it, and the choices you have regarding collection and use of your personal information.   This Privacy Notice discloses the privacy practices of this website, (the “Site”).   This Privacy Notice does not apply to any other website operated by Atlantic Media, its subsidiaries or affiliates.


What We Learn

Our Site may automatically recognize your domain name, IP address, browser version, operating system and the website you passed through to reach us. In addition, our Site automatically gather certain usage information, like the numbers and frequency of visits to the Site and their areas – very much like television ratings that tell how many people tuned in to a program.  The information we obtain in providing Mobile Content varies depending on the practices of your device manufacturer, service provider, and choices available to you as a user.   Some parts of the Site also permit you to supply information of your choosing—e.g., applying for an open position at our Company.

We do not collect personally identifying information from our visitors, other than what is supplied to us on a voluntary basis.


In some cases, we may disclose information about you to a third party if we are required to do so by law or if we in good faith believe that such action is necessary to comply with the law or legal process, to protect and defend our rights or to prevent misuse of our Site, or to protect the personal safety or property of our users or the public.


In the event of a corporate change in control resulting from, for example, a sale to, or merger with, another entity, or in the event of a sale of assets or a bankruptcy, Atlantic Media reserves the right to transfer your personally identifiable information to the new party in control or the party acquiring assets.

Data Security

We have in place reasonable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to protect the information we collect online. However, as effective as these measures are, no security system is impenetrable. We cannot guarantee the security of our database, websites, or services, nor can we guarantee that the information you supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted to us over the Internet.
