Through Time Inc. publications, websites, and other media, you can order products, enter contests, vote in polls or otherwise express an opinion, subscribe to one of our services such as our online newsletters, or participate in one of our online forums or communities. You are able to visit much of this website and enjoy many Time Inc. publications and promotions without providing any personally identifiable information. Sometimes, however, we do need your personally identifiable information to provide you with the products and services that you request. The types of personally identifiable information that may be collected at these pages and elsewhere include, but are not limited to: name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, fax number, credit card information, and information about your interests in and use of various products, programs, and services.
At some Time Inc. sites and through certain promotions, you can submit information about other people. For example, you might submit a person's name and e-mail address to send an electronic greeting card and, if you order a gift online or offline and want it sent directly to the recipient, you might submit the recipient's name and address. The types of personally identifiable information that may be collected about other people at these pages include: recipient's name, address, e-mail address, and telephone number.
For certain promotions, only persons who provide us with the requested personally identifiable information will be able to order products, programs, and services or otherwise participate in the promotion's activities and offerings.
We also may collect certain non-personally identifiable information when you visit many of our web pages such as the type of browser you are using, the type of operating system you are using, and the domain name of your Internet service provider.

Your child's privacy is important to us, and we are committed to safeguarding children's personal information collected online, and to helping parents and their children learn how to exercise control over personal information while exploring the Internet. Therefore, we have taken additional measures to tailor our content and offerings at those sites and portions of our sites directed to children to help them protect their privacy while online. These measures include asking children to use non-personally identifiable screen names rather than their real names in certain activities and making efforts to prevent children from posting contact information. In addition, we do not ask children to disclose more personal information than is necessary for them to participate in an activity.
Visitors to the portions of our sites directed at children may participate in many of our offerings and activities without providing any personally identifiable information. To participate in certain of our interactive features, however, we may ask the user to provide us with the following types of information: first name, first initial of the last name, the visitor's e-mail address, parent's e-mail address, and age information. On some pages of our sites, such as where children can send postcards to their friends, we also may ask your child to provide information (e.g., friend's first name and e-mail address).
To protect your child's privacy and security online, we will take appropriate steps to help verify your identity before granting you access to the personal information that we collect and maintain about your child.
This Policy may be changed by Time Inc. The revised Policy will be posted to this page so that you are aware of the information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances we may disclose it.
