Children should always get permission from their parents before sending any information about themselves (such as their names, email addresses, and phone numbers) over the Internet, to us or to anyone else. Our Services are not directed at children under the age of 13 and we won’t knowingly allow anyone under the age of 13 to provide us any personally identifying information. If you’re under 13, please don’t attempt to post comments on our Services or provide any information about yourself.
The information we gather falls into two categories: (1) information voluntarily supplied by visitors to the Services, for example, when they contact one of the journalists whose work appears on our Services; and (2) tracking information gathered as visitors navigate through our Services, or “like” our content through Facebook or share our content through Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+ or other social media platforms and services we use (“Social Media Services”). This information may be collected directly by us or it may be collected by third-party service providers on our behalf. Third parties whose sites or services are linked to from our Services or from the Social Media Services may be gathering information as well, through processes we don’t control.
We may collect and store information that you voluntarily supply to us while on our Services. This may include personally identifying information if you choose to provide it.

GenerallyWe use the information we collect from visitors to our Services to better understand and serve our audience, and to heighten user engagement with our Services. For example, we use the information we gather to deliver our content to our users, to measure site traffic, to measure user interests and traffic patterns, and to improve our Services and the services and features we offer.
The information that we collect through these Services is stored within databases that we control (or databases hosted on our behalf) on servers maintained in protected environments. However, no physical or electronic security system is impenetrable. We cannot guarantee the security of our servers or databases, nor can we guarantee that information you supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted to us or our third-party service providers over the Internet. Our databases are located within the United States. If you access our site from outside the United States, by providing data to us, you consent to transfer of that data to and storage of that data in the United States.
