Privacy Policy

We respect your privacy
At rowanmagazine.com, we are just as concerned about privacy as you are. Please read the following statement of privacy. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.

Information collection and use

Rowanmagazine.com (rowanmagazine.com, Rowan Magazine) is the sole owner of any information collected on this website. Rowanmagazine.com will not sell, share or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement. The magazine collects information from our users at several different points on our website.

Rowanmagazine.com does not employ the use of “cookies” on this website. A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user’s hard drive containing information about the user. Some of our partners or sponsors may use cookies on their sites. However, rowanmagazine.com has no access to these cookies or control over their use.

Log files
Rowanmagazine.com uses Internet Protocol (IP) addresses to analyze website trends, administer the site, track user movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.

Information sharing
Rowanmagazine.com reserves the right to use outside shipping companies to ship orders or credit card processing companies to process gifts. These companies do not retain, share, store or use any of your personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.

Rowanmagazine.com may occasionally partner with a third party company or organization to provide specific services. When the user signs up for these services, we will share names or other contact information that is necessary for the party to provide these services. These parties are prohibited from using any personal information except for the purpose of providing these user-controlled services.

This website contains links to other sites. Please be aware that the rowanmagazine.com is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected on rowanmagazine.com.

From time-to-time our site requests information from users via web-based surveys. Participation in these surveys is completely voluntary and the user may choose whether or not to disclose any personal information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and shipping address) and demographic information (such as zip code or age level). Survey results are used for improving the use and satisfaction of this site.

E-mail-a-friend service
If a user elects to use our referral service for informing a friend about our site, we ask them for the friend’s name and e-mail address. Rowanmagazine.com will automatically send the friend a one-time e-mail inviting them to visit the site. The magazine stores this information for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email. The recipient may contact the magazine at www.rowanmagazine.com to request the removal of this information from our records.

Rowanmagazine.com takes every reasonable precaution to protect our users’ personal information. When users submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and off-line.

Sensitive information (such as a credit card number and/or a social security number) is encrypted and protected via a Secure Socket Layer (SSL). SSL is considered the one of the strongest and safest encryption software in the industry. While on a secure page, such as our subscription form, the lock icon on the bottom of your web browser becomes locked, as opposed to open, when you are just “surfing.”

While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user-information off-line. All of our users’ information—not just the confidential and sensitive information mentioned above—is restricted in our offices. Only staff members who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, our credit card processor) are granted access to personally identifiable information. Furthermore, all Rowan Magazine staff members are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices. If you have any questions about the security at our website, .

Notification of changes
If rowanmagazine.com decides to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes on our website so our users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances—if any—we disclose it. If at any point we decide to use personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time it was collected, we will notify users via e-mail. Users will have a choice as to whether or not we use their information in this different manner. We use all information in accordance with the privacy policy under which the information was collected.
