The Conley sites may not be used for commercial purposes or in any way that is unlawful or harms us or any other person or entity, as determined by our sole discretion.
In the event you download software from the site, the software, including any files, images incorporated in or generated by the software, and data accompanying the software (collectively, the “Software”) are licensed to you by us.

If you believe any of Conley’s sites has any information from or about anyone under 13, please contact us at this email address: firstname.lastname@example.org.

WHAT TYPES OF INFORMATION WE COLLECT FROM YOU
Information You Provide
Personal information is collected when you register with Conley for services, products, and information updates. Typically, this information may include your name, address, e-mail address, and telephone number. We may also request information, which you may voluntarily provide, such as gender, age, number of children, and personal interests. This information will be identified as “optional” during the registration process. If you purchase products or services from us, we will gather information that is necessary to complete the transaction you have requested. This may include credit card information, the type of products or services ordered or purchased, and the date of the order or purchase. We also gather personal information from, for example, sweepstakes, contests, games, promotional offers, voting, polling, message boards and chat rooms, registration for subscription services related to either the printed or electronic editions of content, newspapers, and the like, or from other interactive areas of our sites.
Technologically Collected Information
Technology allows us to collect several types of information to make our sites more interesting and useful. For example, when you visit a Conley site, we log your IP address, or the portal through which your computer enters the internet. A portal may be your internet service provider or your company, for example. By itself, your IP address is not personally identifiable. We may also use IP addresses to collect information as to how frequently various parts of our sites are visited. This information may be combined with personal information.
Please be aware that if you voluntarily disclose personal information on message boards or in chat areas of our sites, that information can be collected without our knowledge and may result in unsolicited messages from other individuals or third parties. Such activities are beyond the control of Conley.
HOW WE USE THE INFORMATION COLLECTED
We may use your personal information in several ways, including sending you promotional materials, and sharing your information with third parties so they can send you promotional materials. (“Promotional materials” refers to communications that promote the use of our Web sites or the purchase of products or services). As described below, you may choose to “opt-out” of certain uses of your personally identifiable information.
We may take your personal information and combine it with similar information obtained from other users to create profiles of Conley Web site users as a whole and to identify their preferences in content and advertising. This aggregated information may occasionally be shared with our advertisers and business partners as well as used by Conley and its related companies.
Conley may also share your personal information when you engage in certain activities on our Web sites that are sponsored by third parties, such as participating in contests, sweepstakes or games sponsored by others, purchasing products or services from a third party, or electing to receive information from a third party.
When you authorize a third party to use your personal information, we may also share your personal information. When you participate in these activities, you will either be requested or required to agree that the sponsor or business associate may use your personal information in accordance with their privacy policies. Since you will have consented to this instance of sharing your personal information, the opt-out choice will not apply.
Conley may sometimes use shipping companies to provide products or services. For example, a company might help fulfill prizes for a contest. In these types of situations, it is necessary to share your personal information with these companies.
In some circumstances, your dealings with a third party may have authorized that third party to obtain your personal information from Conley and use that information in accordance with their own privacy policies. Your opt-out choices will not apply to these circumstances. Only the information that you authorized (unless separately permitted under other provisions of this Policy) will be provided to these companies.
We transfer your personally identifiable information if Conley acquires or is acquired by, or merges with another company.
To Comply With Law and to Help Protect the Safety and Security of You, Conley, and Others
Regardless of any opt-out choices that you make, Conley will disclose personal information when responding to subpoenas, court orders, or legal processes when it is necessary to share information in order to prevent or investigate illegal activities, suspected fraud, violations of Conley’s terms and conditions of use, or as otherwise required by law. Conley will also disclose personal information when it believes in good faith that such disclosures will help to enforce contest, sweepstakes, game, or promotion rules; protect your safety or security, including the safety and security of your property; and/or protect the safety and security of our Web sites and property, as well as that of third parties.
YOUR CHOICES REGARDING THE COLLECTION AND USE OF YOUR INFORMATION
With regard to your personal information, you have opt-out choices which are the means by which you give us, or decline to give us, your consent to use your personally identifiable information for the purposes covered by these choices. If you prefer that we do not use your registration information to allow you to receive information like promotional materials from third parties, you may decline during the registration process. Conley uses reasonable security measures to protect your information, but does not guarantee the security of your personal information.
UPDATING YOUR CONTACT INFORMATION AND OPT-OUT CHOICES
You may access and update your contact information or modify your opt-out choices by contacting us at email@example.com. It may take up to four weeks for changes to your opt-out choices to take effect.
