Mississippi Business Journal has created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to the privacy interests of our users. The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for msbusiness.com.

IP Address Use

We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, and to administer our Web site. Your IP address is also reported in our site traffic reports and is used to gather broad demographic information (i.e., geographic location, etc.)

Cookies

“Cookies” are pieces of information that are placed by a Web site in a storage place on your computer. Cookies do not contain information that is, in itself, personally identifying. Mississippi Business Journal places cookies on your computer in a limited way to help deliver advertisements, to calculate unique site visitors, and to track usage throughout our site. Other uses include placement of cookies to make the login process more convenient for users of our E-mail newsletters and our archives.

Registration Form Requirements

Our site’s registration form requires users to give us contact information (like their name and email address), financial information (like their account or credit card numbers), and demographic information (like their zip code, age, etc). The customer’s contact information is used when a member of staff needs to reach the visitor regarding their account or another matter related to their account. In the event your contact information is used to market our company’s products, you may opt-out of receiving future mailings; see the opt-out section below.

Use of Financial Information

We collect financial information to check a users’ qualifications for registration and to bill them for products and services. Unique identifiers (such as in-house account numbers) are collected to verify the user’s identity and for use in our record system.

Profile Data

Profile data is also collected at our site. We use this data to tailor the visitor’s experience at our site, showing them content that they have expressed an interest in receiving via e-mail or in specific areas of msbusiness.com.

Links to Other Sites

Our site contains links to other sites to enhance the value and depth of our editorial coverage. Mississippi Business Journal is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such Web sites. However, those companies that we partner with are required to have privacy policies in place that specify their data gathering practices and how financial and other unique visitor information is used by the site. We do not share specific information about msbusiness.com users with our partners for cross-marketing purposes unless authorized to do so by the end user as a part of an opt-in agreement.

Contests & Promotions

We run contests on our site, which, on occasion, ask visitors for contact information (like their email address). This information is used to contact the visitor when necessary. In the event your contact information is used to market our company’s products, you may opt-out of receiving future mailings; see the opt-out section below.
