We at the CNY Business Journal, the Mohawk Valley Business Journal, the Southern Tier Business Journal and BizEventz (hereinafter referred to collectively at The Business Journal), value your online security. For this reason, we have implemented safeguards to protect the information you transmit to us over the Internet as described in this Security Statement. We collect and use the information you provide to us to respond to your needs, service your accounts and provide you with information about other services we provide. This statement applies to all users of cnybj.com; bizeventz.com; tmvbj.com and tgbbj.com whether the user is a customer of The Business Journal or not.
When you engage The Business Journal over the Internet for subscription services or other products offered by The Business Journal, your web browser connects with the domain through SSL ("Secure Sockets Layer"). SSL is an industry-standard way to send personal information over the Internet. SSL ensures that all data passed between the web server and browser remains private and secure. We also protect your transactions when you enroll in our e-alerts, participate in one or more of our "Top-Ranks" surveys, or register for events. It's fast, safe, and ensures that your personal information will not be read by anyone else. Look for one or more of these indicators on your browser to ensure you have a secure connection:
- A security-alert window tells you that you are about to use a secure connection. Some browsers let you choose whether to display this window.
- An SSL icon shows when you are in a secure connection: A symbol of an "open padlock" changes to a "closed padlock" (available in most but not all browsers) in the address bar of your browser when you are in a secure connection.
- A symbol of a "broken key" is replaced by an unbroken key.
- The Web-site's address changes to one that begins with "https" (check for the "s" which designates a "secure" site).
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. IN NO EVENT, SHALL THE BUSINESS JOURNAL OR ITS AFFILIATES BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES (WHETHER CONSEQUENTIAL, DIRECT, INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT, PUNITIVE, SPECIAL OR OTHERWISE) ARISING OUT OF, OR IN ANY WAY CONNECTED WITH, A THIRD PARTY'S UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO YOUR INFORMATION, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER SUCH DAMAGES ARE BASED ON CONTRACT, STRICT LIABILITY, TORT, OR OTHER THEORIES OF LIABILITY, AND ALSO REGARDLESS OF WHETHER THE BUSINESS JOURNAL WAS GIVEN ACTUAL OR CONSTRUCTIVE NOTICE THAT DAMAGES WERE POSSIBLE.
