Privacy Policy

The CNY Business Journal, the Mohawk Valley Business Journal, the Greater Binghamton Business Journal and BizEventz, (hereinafter referred to as The Business Journal) respect the privacy of individuals who visit our websites or who provide comments to us regarding our privacy policy. Visitors to these websites accept the terms of the policy and consent to the use and disclosure of personal information as described below. All information provided to The Business Journal is considered a voluntary submission.

During your visit to The Business Journal Website you may place an order for goods or services, submit an inquiry, and/or submit information. The information, including personal information, volunteered by you in initiating such transactions is used by The Business Journal to provide you with goods or services. The information collected by The Business Journal affiliates may be shared among them and disclosed by them for those purposes that may be reasonably ascertained from the nature and terms of the transaction in connection with which the information was submitted. The information is not collected for commercial marketing purposes and The Business Journal will not sell or otherwise disclose the information collected from The Business Journal Website for commercial marketing purposes.

The Business Journal does not collect any personal information about you during your visit to The Business Journal Website unless you provide that information voluntarily by sending an e-mail or initiating an online transaction such as filling out a registration or completing an order form. You may choose not to send us an e-mail, register online for a service, or complete an online order form. While your choice not to participate in these activities may limit your ability to receive specific services or products through The Business Journal Website, it will not prevent you from requesting services or products from The Business Journal by other means and will normally not have an impact on your ability to take advantage of other features of The Business Journal Website, including browsing or downloading most publicly available information.

The Business Journal does not knowingly collect personal information from children or create profiles of children through The Business Journal Website. Users are cautioned, however, that the collection of personal information submitted in an e-mail or through an online transaction will be treated as though it was submitted by an adult, and may, unless exempted by federal or state law, be subject to public access. The Business Journal strongly encourages parents and teachers to be involved in children's Internet activities and to provide guidance whenever children are requested or otherwise have the opportunity to provide personal information online.

The Business Journal collects personal information to better understand visitors' needs and to build the right solutions. For example, in order to send our daily breaking news, we need each visitor's e-mail address. The Business Journal also may use e-mail to acknowledge subscriptions to our newspapers or communicate with you about new features, products, or services. We may engage a third party to assist our website development, solve technical problems, process credit cards, or for similar reasons requiring us to share information that you have provided.

Our visitors' privacy is very important. However, parties not related to nor authorized by The Business Journal may unlawfully intercept or access private communications or files and consequently provide unauthorized information to unwanted parties. While The Business Journal takes reasonable steps to safeguard and to prevent unauthorized access to your private information, we cannot be responsible for the acts of those who gain unauthorized access, and we make no warranty, express, implied, or otherwise, that we will prevent unauthorized access to your private information. Please reference our Security Statement pertaining to a third-party's unauthorized access for more information.

The Business Journal may also encounter situations in which it may be necessary or required to disclose personal information to government agencies or even to private parties either pursuant to a court order or required by law, required for the purposes of validating the identity of the user, or which contains information to be used solely for statistical purposes that is in a form that cannot be used to identify any particular person. In this instance, The Business Journal, in its sole discretion, may disclose personal information from our website visitors.

The Business Journal does not sell any personal information, but we do share it with our affiliates and with carefully selected companies who offer services and products we think might interest you. If you prefer not to have your information shared, simply unsubscribe by clicking on the unsubscribe link at the bottom of the news briefs email.

The information provided in this Privacy Policy should not be construed as giving business, legal or other advice, or warranting as fail proof, the security of information provided through The Business Journal website.
