The following paragraphs describe the type of information citypaper.net collects, the reason why such information is collected, how such information is used and who has access to it.
Collection of Information:
Citypaper.net collects information in various ways that is volunteered by visitors to our site. Certain identifying information, such as name, street address, city, state, zip, age and email address is gathered at certain interactive areas on the site, such as when you fill out surveys, subscribe to our electronic newsletter and enter promotional contests.
Citypaper.net uses tracking information to determine popularity of certain sections of our site based traffic to those areas. This information is reported in the aggregate form. Specific user habits are not shared with anyone.
Visitors to citypaper.net have options about submitting certain information. Such choices include:
Opting not to receive our electronic newsletters.
Opting not to enter a promotional contest, which completely alleviates the need for collecting information from our users.
Occasionally, citypaper.net will administer survey's to better target our content to accommodate the interests, needs and opinions of our readers/users. Information from these surveys is collected and analyzed internally by citypaper.net in the form of aggregate data. Citypaper.net may disclose this aggregate demographic information to advertisers/third parties in reports that never display information about specific individuals.
Citypaper.net allows readers/users to log-in to our site and register to win prizes from third parties. Citypaper.net will occasionally send out notification emails to contest entrants about other promotions and events relating to their interests. Information collected from this registration process is used for internal purposes only (in the aggregate form) and never sold or rented to a third party.

If you do not want the data to be shared with citypaper.net, you may choose not to permit the data to be collected or transferred by submitting personally identifiable information on our site, or by using a particular service.
Unfortunately, no data transmission (whether an e-mail, survey response or other transmission) over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Information you send via the Internet could be viewed in transit by a third party. Citypaper.net assumes no responsibility and will incur no liability for disclosure of your information due to errors or unauthorized acts of third parties during transmission. Once we receive your transmission, we will take reasonable steps to secure it on our systems. However, we cannot guarantee that this information will be absolutely safe from intrusion from others, such as hackers.
