Information Obtained from Third Parties

If you provide us personal information about others, or if others give us your information, we will only use that information for the specific reason for which it was provided to us.

Information Sharing

We will share your personal information with third parties only in the ways that are described in this privacy statement. We do not sell your personal information to third parties.

We may provide your personal information to companies that provide services to help us with our business activities such as managing your billing or offering customer service. These companies are authorized to use your personal information only as necessary to provide these services to us.

We may also disclose your personal information

  • as required by law such as to comply with a subpoena, or similar legal process
  • when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or respond to a government request,
  • if World Politics Review is involved in a merger, acquisition, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, you will be notified via email and/or a prominent notice on our Web site of any change in ownership or uses of your personal information, as well as any choices you may have regarding your personal information,
  • to any other third party with your prior consent to do so.
Credit Card Processing

We use Chargify as our billing management system, and PayPal as our credit card processor. If you purchase a paid subscription, you will provide your credit card number on our signup page, which is hosted securely by Chargify. Neither World Politics Review nor Chargify stores your credit card information. Instead, Chargify works with PayPal's secure "vault" to store your credit card information in a secure, PCI Compliant location. You can read more about Chargify's security practices here.

Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies

We may use cookies, for example, to keep track of your preferences and profile information. Cookies are also used to collect general usage and volume statistical information that does not include personal information.

We use other companies to place cookies on your computer to collect non-personally identifiable information to compile aggregated statistics for us about visitors to our site.

Advertising

Currently World Politics Review does not sell or display advertising on its site. As ad serving and optimization software is the source of much of the user tracking activity on the Internet, the fact that we do not have advertising on our site means we are likely to collect much less information about you and your browsing activities than most ad-supported sites that you visit.

Web beacons

Our Web pages contain electronic images known as Web beacons (sometimes called single-pixel gifs) and are used along with cookies to compile aggregated statistics to analyze how our site is used and may be used in some of our emails to let us know which emails and links have been opened by recipients. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of our customer communications and marketing campaigns.

Our Web pages may also contain electronic images known as Web beacons (sometimes called single-pixel gifs) that are set by our third party partners. Web beacons are used along with cookies enabling our partners to compile aggregated statistics to analyze how our site is used.

We use a third party to gather information about how you and others use our Web site. For example, we will know how many users access a specific page and which links they clicked on. We use this aggregated information to understand and optimize how our site is used.

Links to Other Web Sites

Our Site includes links to other Web sites whose privacy practices may differ from those of World Politics Review. If you submit personal information to any of those sites, your information is governed by their privacy statements. We encourage you to carefully read the privacy statement of any Web site you visit.

Security

The security of your personal information is important to us. We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. If you have any questions about security on our Web site, you can contact us at subscriptions@worldpoliticsreview.com.

We will retain your information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you services. If you wish to cancel your account or request that we no longer use your information to provide you services contact us at subscriptions@worldpoliticsreview.com. We will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
