Although most Web browsers are initially set up to accept cookies, if you prefer, a User may decline the placement of a cookie on his or her hard drive by using the appropriate feature(s) of one’s Web browser software (if available) to delete the cookie. Users should understand, however, that certain areas within the Pipesandtobaccosmagazine.com Network may not function properly if the Web browser will not accept cookies.

In addition, advertisers that serve ads onto the Pipesandtobaccosmagazine.com network may also use their own cookies.

Does Pipesandtobaccosmagazine.com disclose personal information to third parties?
Pipesandtobaccosmagazine.com discloses publicly available or volunteered technical or reference information of Users in aggregate form only, and not specific individual data, to advertisers and certain other third parties. For example, Pipesandtobaccosmagazine.com might tell an advertiser how many males between 20 and 30 years in age visited the Pipesandtobaccosmagazine.com Network during a particular period of time.

In addition, Users are required to disclose certain personal information through registration in order to participate in promotions or to request information or a quote from certain third-party providers that offer services through the Pipesandtobaccosmagazine.com Network. It is necessary for Pipesandtobaccosmagazine.com to share this information with one or more appropriate third parties, who may or may not further transfer the information to appropriate vendors, in order to enable the vendors to provide the requested information or quote to the User. Pipesandtobaccosmagazine.com does not control these third parties, and there can be no assurance that certain of such parties will not solicit users in the future by email or otherwise. If you do not wish to have your personal data shared with third parties, you may elect not to participate in promotions or use services that require the disclosure of personal data.

Except as stated above, Pipesandtobaccosmagazine.com does not disclose or transfer individual personal data records to third parties, unless it reasonably believes it is required to do so by applicable law or valid legal process or to protect its property interests.

Pipesandtobaccosmagazine.com deals only with third-party advertisers, retailers or service providers offering for sale products or services that Pipesandtobaccosmagazine.com believes may be of interest to Users of the Pipesandtobaccosmagazine.com Network. Nevertheless, Pipesandtobaccosmagazine.com is not and cannot be responsible for the activities or privacy policies of these third parties.

Users should further be aware that these third-party Websites are not controlled by Pipesandtobaccosmagazine.com and, therefore, are not subject to this Privacy Policy.

When disclosing any personal information, all Users should remain mindful of the fact that it is potentially accessible to the public, and consequently, can be collected and used by others without User consent.

Can I opt out of Pipesandtobaccosmagazine.com’s data collection and/or distribution?
As noted earlier, the collection, use and distribution of personal data greatly assist Pipesandtobaccosmagazine.com in creating a more personalized, relevant and intelligent service. Without the use of personal data, Pipesandtobaccosmagazine.com could not deliver certain of its content and services in the most beneficial way.

Pipesandtobaccosmagazine.com does, however, offer Users of the Pipesandtobaccosmagazine.com Network the ability to “opt out” of having their data collected or used as described in this Privacy Policy.
