We respect and protect the privacy of our users.
Parisien Salon promises never to sell your personal information without your consent to any third parties. Personal information includes name, e-mail address, postal address and answers to survey questions. ParisienSalon.com does not monitor individual traffic patterns on our site – only aggregate reader behavior is disseminated. We use this information only to help us make your user experience more enjoyable and productive.
ParisienSalon.com offers free, voluntary registration to users. By registering users will have complete access to all content and resources on the site. During registration the user is required to supply a username, password and email address, and must answer mandatory survey questions about age, gender, nationality, postal code.
Parisien Salon offers electronic newsletters to users. ParisienSalon.com gathers the email addresses of users who voluntarily subscribe. Users may remove themselves from this mailing list by following the link provided in every newsletter that points users to the subscription management page or by unsubscribing in the newsletter subscription area of our website. Users can also subscribe to the newsletters at the time of registration.
“Send to a Friend” and “Invite a Friend”
Parisien Salon’s Mailer service allows a reader to electronically forward a feature story or a Parisien Salon e-postcard invitation to someone else by clicking the appropriate link. The user must provide their email address, as well as that of the recipient. This information is used only in the case of transmission errors and, of course, to let the recipient know who sent the email. The information is not used for any other purpose.
Occasionally Parisien Salon conducts user surveys to better target our content to our audience. We sometimes share the aggregated demographic information in these surveys with our advertisers and partners. We never share any of this information about specific individuals with any third party.
Subscribers may receive various email updates that are sent out on a weekly basis containing selected features, hot deals and upcoming events in Paris, together with some advertisements and hyperlinks to the Parisien Salon site. Any subscriber who wishes to be removed from the mailing lists of one or more of these updates can do so at any time by emailing our Customer Service Department at info@ParisienSalon.com.
Parisien Salon.com provides message boards for user discussion of various topics. Although any user may read messages posted to the boards, only registered users are permitted to post on the boards. Contributors to our forums have the option of remaining anonymous to other users.
Parisien Salon sometimes offers contests in which certain personal information is required for registration, for purposes of verifying the entrants’ identities and notifying the winners. If a third party is administering the contest, this information will be disclosed to that third party.
If you prefer not to receive cookies, you are able to set your browser to refuse them. However, doing so may impair the functionality of some parts of the Parisien Salon site.
Use of the Information
ParisienSalon.com uses any information voluntarily given by our users to enhance their experience, whether to provide interactive or personalized elements on the sites or to better prepare future content based on the interests of our users.
As stated above, Parisien Salon uses information that users voluntarily provide in order to send out electronic newsletters and to enable users to move seamlessly through the website. We send out our newsletter to subscribers on a regular schedule, and occasionally send out special editions when we think subscribers might be particularly interested in something we are doing.
We use tracking information to determine which areas our site users like and don’t like based on traffic to those areas. Parisien Salon does not track what individual users read, but rather how well each page performs overall. This helps us continue to build a better service for you.
Parisien Salon creates aggregate reports on user demographics and traffic patterns for advertisers and partners. This allows our advertisers to advertise more effectively, and allows our users to receive advertisements that are pertinent to their needs. Because Parisien Salon doesn’t track the usage patterns of individual users, an advertiser will never know that a specific user clicked their ad.
Parisien Salon does allow select advertisers to mail promotions to registrants and newsletter recipients who have given us their permission to do so, and to include information with mailings and newsletters sent by Parisien Salon. We do not give third parties direct access to your details without your permission. All promotions are pre-approved by Parisien Salon and all mailings are conducted by a reputable third party mail house to ensure the names are not mis-used or used more than once. Our users have the option of “opting in” or “opting out” when their information is collected, if they would prefer to not receive promotions from our partners. You may change this designation at anytime.
Parisien Salon gives users options wherever necessary and practical. Such choices include:
- • Opt-in/Opt-out to receive our electronic newsletters when registering.
- • Opt-in/Opt-out to receive periodic e-mails from Parisien Salon.com regarding upcoming events and contests.
- • Opt-in/Opt-out to receive correspondence from carefully chosen third-party advertisers.
Parisien Salon.com offers users the ability to correct or change the information collected during registration for any site (see above). Users may change this information at any time and as often as necessary. Users who are experiencing problems or who have any questions about how our services work can contact us at info@ParisienSalon.com.
A subscriber may at any time cancel his or her subscription by emailing info@ParisienSalon.com.
Parisien Salon.com reserves the right to modify this policy at any time without prior notice.
If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us: info@ParisienSalon.com.
