1. SCOPE AND APPLICATION: What and who this Privacy Policy covers.

Fox News Network, LLC ("Fox News" or “we” or “our”), which operates the foxnewsaffiliates.com website, has developed this Privacy Policy to describe how we collect, use and disclose information from and about you for the Services described in this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy describes our practices in connection with information collected through the business-to-business foxnewsaffiliates.com websites, mobile sites, applications ("apps"), widgets, and other content and services that are linked to this Privacy Policy (collectively, the “Services").

By providing personal information to us and using the Services, you agree to the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy.

The Services are for a general audience, are not targeted to children, and do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13 years of age.

This Privacy Policy applies to all users, including both those who use the Services without being registered for Services and those who have registered for one or more Services. This Privacy Policy applies to our collection and use of your personal information (i.e., information that identifies a specific person, such as full name or email address). It also describes generally our practices for handling non-personal information (e.g., interests, demographics and services usage).

2. COLLECTION OF INFORMATION: The sources of and methods by which we and our service providers collect information from and about you, including information about your interaction with the Services.

We and our service providers may collect the following information from and about you:

Registration Information is the information you submit to register for our Services, for example to create an account, receive a newsletter, or enter a contest or sweepstakes. Registration Information may include, for example, name, email address, job title, affiliation, address, and phone number.

Public Information and Posts consist of comments or content that you post to the Services and the information about you that accompanies those posts or content, which may include a name, user name, comments, likes, status, and profile information. Public Information and Posts are always public, which means they are available to everyone and may be displayed in search results on external search engines.

Site Activity Information. When you access and interact with the Services, We and our service providers may collect certain information about those visits. For example, in order to permit your connection to the Services, our servers receive and record information about your computer, device and browser, including potentially your IP address, browser type, and other software or hardware information.

Cookies and other tracking technologies (such as browser cookies, pixels, beacons, and Adobe Flash technology including cookies), which are comprised of small bits of data may also be used. Our websites, apps, and other services send this data to your browser when you first request a web page and then store the data on your computer or other device so the website, app or other service can access information when you make subsequent requests for pages from that website, app or other service. These technologies may also be used to collect and store information about your usage of the Services, such as pages you have visited, and the videos and other content you have viewed.

Other parties that support the Services by providing services, such as allowing you to share content or tracking aggregate Service usage statistics, may also use these technologies to collect similar information when you use the Services or other parties’ services.

Your browser may be initially set to accept cookies, but you can change your settings to notify you when a cookie is being set or updated, or to block cookies altogether. Please consult the "Help" section of your browser for more information (e.g., http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Block-or-allow-cookies). Users can manage the use of Flash technologies with the Flash management tools available at Adobe's website, see http://www.macromedia.com/support/documentation/en/flashplayer/help/settings_manager.html. Please note that by blocking any or all cookies, you may not have access to certain features, content or personalization available through the Services.

Information from Other Sources. We and our service providers may supplement the information we collect with information from other sources and information from our Affiliates or business partners.

Do Not Track Signals. At this time we do not respond to browser ‘Do Not Track’ signals, as we await the work of interested stakeholders and others to develop standards for how such signals should be interpreted.

3. USE AND DISCLOSURE: How we use the information we collect from and about you, and who we might share it with and why.

We may use the information we collect from and about you to provide the Services and features to you, including: to measure and improve those Services and features and to develop new products and services; to improve your experience with Services by delivering content you will find relevant and interesting, including marketing messages; to allow you to participate in online games, contests, other promotions, or rewards programs; to provide you with customer support and to respond to inquiries. In order to provide you with content that is more interesting and relevant to you, we may use the information from and about you to make inferences and predictions about your potential areas of interest. When the information collected from or about you does not identify you as a specific person, we may use that information for any purpose or share it with other parties to the extent permitted by applicable law.

We use the information we collect from and about you for these additional purposes:

To allow service providers to assist us in providing and managing the Services. The information we collect from and about you may be made available to certain service providers, such as contractors, analytics and other measurement companies, agents or sponsors, who help us analyze and understand your use of the Services and manage and/or provide the Services.

To provide co-branded services and features. We may offer co-branded services or features, such as contests, sweepstakes or other promotions together with other companies ("Co-Branded Services"). These Co-Branded Services may be hosted on Services or on the that other party's service. By virtue of these relationships, we may share the information you submit in connection with the Co-Branded Service with that party. That other party's use of your information will be governed by its party's privacy policy.

To contact you. We may periodically send promotional materials (e.g., newsletters) or notifications related to the Services to the email address you provided to us at registration or for your account. If you want to stop receiving promotional materials from Service, you can change your account setting, or follow the unsubscribe instructions at the bottom of each email, or see additional contact options here: https://www.foxnews.com/contactus. There are certain service notification and other non-promotional emails that you may not opt-out of, such as notifications of changes to the Services or policies. If you have installed a mobile app and you wish to stop receiving push notifications, you can change the settings either on your mobile device or through the app.

To share with our Affiliates. We may share your information with Affiliates for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy. A link to a website that lists our Affiliates can be found at the beginning of this policy. Users who visit our Affiliates' services should still refer to their separate privacy policies, which may differ in some respects from this Privacy Policy.

To share with business partners. We may share your information with business partners to permit them to send you marketing communications, consistent with your choices.

To protect our rights and the rights of others. There may be instances when we may use or disclose your information including situations where we have a good faith belief that such use or disclosure is necessary in order to: (i) protect, enforce, or defend our legal rights, privacy, safety, or property, or that of our Affiliates or their employees, agents and contractors (including enforcement of our agreements and our Terms of Use); (ii) protect the safety, privacy, and security of users of the Services or members of the public; (iii) protect against fraud or for risk management purposes; (iv) comply with the law or legal process; or (v) respond to requests from public and government authorities.

To complete a merger or sale of assets. If we sell all or part of its business or makes a sale or transfer of its assets or is otherwise involved in a merger or transfer of all or a material part of its business (including, in connection with a bankruptcy or similar proceedings), we may transfer your information to the party or parties involved in the transaction as part of that transaction.

4. SECURITY: How we protect your information from loss and misuse.

We use commercially reasonable administrative, technical, personnel and physical measures designed to safeguard information in its possession against loss, theft and unauthorized use, disclosure or modification. However, no one can guarantee the complete safety of your information.

6. OTHER IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Updates to Privacy Policy. We may modify this Privacy Policy. Please look at the Effective Date at the top of this Privacy Policy to see when this Privacy Policy was last revised. Any changes to this Privacy Policy will become effective when we post the revised Privacy Policy on the Services.

Location of Data. The Services are hosted in and managed from the United States. If you are a user located outside the United States, you understand and consent to having any personal information processed in the United States or in any other country in which we have facilities or in which we engage service providers. United States and other countries’ data protection may not be the same as those in your jurisdiction. In certain circumstances, courts, law enforcement agencies, regulatory agencies or security authorities in the United States may be entitled to access your personal information.

Linked Services. The Services may be linked to sites operated by unaffiliated companies, and may carry advertisements or offer content, functionality, games, newsletters, contests or sweepstakes, or applications developed and maintained by unaffiliated companies. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of unaffiliated companies and once you leave the Services, enable an unaffiliated service, or click an advertisement, you should check the applicable privacy policy of the other or unaffiliated service.

In addition, We are not responsible for the privacy or data security practices of other organizations, such as Facebook, Twitter, Apple, Google, Microsoft or any other app developer, app provider, social media platform provider, operating system provider, wireless service provider, or device manufacturer, including in connection with any information you disclose to other organizations through or in connection with the Services.

Data Retention. We will retain your information for the period necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy unless a longer retention period is required or allowed by law.
Remember that even after you cancel your account, or if you ask us to delete your personal information, copies of some information from your account may remain viewable in some circumstances where, for example, you have shared information with Other Services. We may also retain backup information related to your account on our servers for some time after cancellation or your request for deletion, for fraud detection or to comply with applicable law or our internal security or recordkeeping policies. It may not always be possible to completely remove or delete all of your information due to technical constraints, or contractual, financial or legal requirements. Because of the nature of caching technology, your account may not be instantly inaccessible to others.
