The Publisher or its partners may place one or more online tracking technologies, such as a “cookie,” in the browser files of your computer. A cookie is a small piece of information that is stored on your computer; it can help identify that browser during interaction with Web sites.

  • Improve the content, design, and value of Footnoted;
  • Understand how users are using Footnoted;
  • Enable its audit bureau to verify claims of Footnoted traffic and usage;

Financial Information
Footnoted is a subscription-based service that requires payment.

The Publisher uses a third party to process credit card transactions, and does not store financial information on its Web site.

Product Delivery
The Publisher uses personally identifiable information to deliver customized products to you.

The Publisher may use partners to deliver email messages and other products. Your Information, such as email address, that is provided to these partners is only used for that purpose, and not for any other business activity.

In order to comply with the Federal CAN-SPAM Act of 2003, the Publisher may provide lists of users who have “opted-out” of Footnoted or derivative products, to ensure they are suppressed from appropriate mailings/delivery.

When you opt-out or unsubscribe from a Footnoted product, removal instructions may be supplied to the partner or third party. Users who continue to receive products they do not want should contact [email protected].

3. Transfer
In the event that the Publisher and/or Footnoted are sold or transferred, all Information and data—including personally identifying information—will be transferred to the new owner.

4. Disclosure
The Publisher may also use or disclose personally identifying information if the disclosure is reasonably necessary (a) to satisfy applicable legal, regulatory, or enforcement requests; (b) to enforce agreements with users; (c) to address fraud or security issues; or (d) to protect against harm to the rights, property, or safety of the Publisher, its employees, partners or customers.

5. Security
The Publisher takes commercially reasonable precautions to protect your Information. Always be careful when entering financial or personal information, and never share passwords.
