This Privacy Statement is applicable only to www.nextcity.org (the “Site”) and does not apply to any personal information that we may collect through other means, such as through other sites or offline.
The Information We Gather About You & What We Do With It
Next City collects personal information that you voluntarily provide to us through the Site under the following circumstances:
- If you request a subscription or purchase a product, we collect your name, email address and payment information. All credit card and billing address information used to purchase stories or subscriptions is gathered by and stored by Stripe.com. Next City never views your credit card information but may use your billing address information to deduce the regional demographics of our readership.
- If you post a comment to our Site, we store your email address, username and any personal information provided in your comment.
- If you opt in to our weekly e-newsletter, we collect your email address to provide you with Next City’s online content and events.
- If you choose to log in to americancity.org through Facebook, Facebook sends us information from your Facebook profile. Do not log in to our Site through Facebook unless you agree that we may collect, store, and use any and all information made available to us through Facebook.
You may choose not to provide this personal information to us, but then we may not be able to provide you with services or products available on the Site.
To enhance your experience on our Site, many of our webpages use “cookies.” Cookies are small text files that we place in your computer’s browser to store your preferences. Cookies, by themselves, do not tell us your email address or other personal information unless you choose to provide this information to us by, for example, registering on nextcity.org. Once you choose to provide a webpage with personal information, this information may be linked to the data stored in the cookie. A cookie is like an identification card. It is unique to your computer and can only be read by the server that gave it to you.
If you want to control which cookies you accept, you can configure your browser to accept all cookies or to alert you every time a cookie is offered by a website’s server. Most browsers automatically accept cookies. You can set your browser option so that you will not receive cookies and you can also delete existing cookies from your browser. You may find that some parts of the site will not function properly if you have refused cookies.
You can configure your browser to accept all cookies or to alert you every time a cookie is offered by a website’s server. Please be aware that if you do not configure your browser you will accept cookies provided by this website.
