As is true of most websites, when you access and use the Site, we gather certain information automatically. This information includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data. We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the Site, to track users' movements around the Site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. If you are logged into your user account, we are able to link this automatically collected data to such account.
MGN has a number of operational functions in place to protect the confidentiality of personal information. Perfect security on the Internet does not exist, and MGN does not warrant that the Site is impenetrable or invulnerable to hackers.
Please be aware that the Site may contain links to other sites that are covered by their own privacy policies. MGN is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites and we encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site. We recommend that our users read the privacy statements of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information.
MGN may send emails to users and potential users about our services, special offers, promotions, and noteworthy or breaking news and events. To do so, we may engage a third-party Processor to process your Personal Data. This Processor will be subject to binding contractual obligations to only process the Personal Data in accordance with our prior written instructions; and use measures to protect the confidentiality and security of the Personal Data; together with any additional requirements under applicable law. You will have the ability to opt-out of receiving these types of emails if you so choose.

However, MGNdirect does provide Sponsorship Services under contract that include Ad Campaigns for our Sponsors that wish to reach MGN News Industry Contacts. In addition to MGNOnline Site Ads, MGN will initiate email marketing to our Affiliates and other News Industry Contacts to introduce our Sponsors in a variety of ways. Your Personal Data is automatically shared with these MGNdirect Sponsors ONLY when you open one of these emails and click or interact with links or content contained within these emails. You will have the ability to opt-out of receiving these types of emails if you so choose. MGN does not market to the European Union and so the GDPR does not apply to us.
