Information Collection, Use, and Sharing
We are the sole owners of
the information collected on this site. We only have access to/collect
information you voluntarily give us via email or other direct means from you. We will
not sell or rent this information to anyone.
We will use your
information to respond to you regarding your magazine purchases and to contact you about renewals and occasional sales promotions (which you unsubscribe from receiving). We will not share your information with any third party
outside of our organization, other than as necessary to fulfill your magazine
When purchasing a magazine, a user must first complete a registration form. During
registration a user is required to give certain information (such as name and
email address). This information is used to contact you about the
magazines on our site in which you have purchased.
We request information from you on our order form. To buy from us, you must provide contact
information (like name and shipping address). If you are not mailing a check
for your purchase, we also require financial information (like credit card
number, expiration date). This is used for billing purposes and to fill your orders. If we have trouble processing
an order, we'll use this information to contact you.
We use "cookies"
on this site. A cookie is a piece of data stored on a site visitor's hard drive
to help us improve your access to our site and identify repeat visitors to our
site. For instance, when we use a cookie to identify you, you would not have to
log in a password more than once, thereby saving time while on our site. We
also use session cookies to track your magazine purchases in your shopping
cart. Cookies can also enable us to
track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our

information on our site.
Surveys & Contests

requests information via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or
contests is completely voluntary and you may choose whether or not to
participate and therefore disclose this information. Information requested may
include contact information (such as name and shipping address), and
demographic information (such as zip code, age level). Contact information will
be used to notify the winners and award prizes. Survey information will be used
for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site.
Our third party payment processors
We use two third parties to process personal data on our behalf. The third parties we use are PayPal and USAePay.
PayPal processes payments for magazine purchases from our website. Neither us or PayPal retain any financial information you may
submit as part of the purchasing process. PayPal monitors every transaction, 24/7 to prevent fraud, email phishing and identity theft.
Every transaction is heavily guarded behind PayPal's advanced encryption. If something appears suspicious, their dedicated team of
security specialists will identify suspicious activity and help protect you from fraudulent transactions. PayPal and MagazineValues.com
will never ask for any sensitive information.
USAePay is a payment gateway that processes payments for magazine purchases from our website. USAePay uses multiple third-party security
companies to ensure that their security is always meeting the strictest of industry security standards. Every security assessor working
with USAePay provides a seal for our clients to view our certification for meeting security standards. All of USAePayâ€™s communications
and processing occur through Transport Layer Security (TLS). TLS ensures privacy between communicating applications and their users on
the Internet. To ensure the highest level of security, USAePay uses a 2048-bit RSA key and does not support cyphers known to be weak or
vulnerable. As one of the first payment gateways to become Level-1 PCI compliant, USAePay is committed in ensuring that all processed,
stored or transmitted credit card information maintain a completely secure environment. USAePay updates their PCI guidelines based on
updates of regulations and requirements through their annual Level-1 audit. This audit includes scanning their system thoroughly and
submitting a complete Report of Compliance (RoC) to the PCI Security Standards Council. USAePay realizes that the theft of lists or
databases in which credit card information is stored can have dire consequences for merchants and their customers. With this in mind,
USAePay has developed a revolutionary new way of storing credit card information. In the USAePay system, each credit card number is
stored individually, making it impossible to steal an entire list or database full of sensitive data. USAePayâ€™s non-database system
provides the highest possible level of security for credit card data storage.
SmarTek Holdings Inc. provides the Customer Engagement platform we use to manage and fulfil your orders. No personal financial
information is ever taken or stored in this system as during the process, everything is transferred out to PayPal or USAePay
so that neither MagazineValues.com or SmarTek Holdings has access to your financial information.
We take precautions to
protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the
website, your information is protected both online and offline.
Whenever we collect
sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted
and transmitted to us in a secure way. You
can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web
browser, or looking for "https" at the beginning of the address of
the web page.
While we use encryption to
protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your
information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a
specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to
personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store
personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
