We are absolutely committed to protecting your privacy. We are also committed to the following: We will not pass on any individual user details unless we have your prior consent; and if we don't have your consent to pass on individual user details, we will only give advertisers aggregate statistics about the number of users and their traffic patterns. However, if WHEREANDNOW.COM changes hands, WHEREANDNOW.COM reserves the right to transfer all information collected through this site to the new owner.
WHEREANDNOW.COM does not require you to provide any personal information in order to access the site. However, if you choose to fill out any reader surveys, or to sign up to our weekly newsletter, you will be asked to supply some information about yourself, including your name and email address.
WHEREANDNOW.COM keeps track of the number of visitors to the site, the pages they visit and how long they stay. In addition, WHEREANDNOW.COM collects information from visitors who click on advertisements so that we are able to measure interest in the various areas of our site and inform advertisers as to how many visitors have seen or clicked on their adverts. WHEREANDNOW.COM also uses demographic and preference information to allow advertising banners on our site to be targeted.
We collect this kind of aggregate user information for two main reasons: to help us continually improve the service we offer; and to sell sponsorships on the site to appropriate advertisers. WHEREANDNOW.COM discloses this information to advertisers. Note that advertisers do not have influence over the editorial content or reviews that appear on the site.
We do not track any of your activity as it relates to your individual movements throughout our site, only as an aggregate of data in conjunction with users to our site as a whole. Your movement is not tracked once you leave our site.
Our site uses advertising servers to serve the advertisements that you see on pages of our site.
WHEREANDNOW.COM e-mail policy
When you give us your email address when signing up to the newsletter you give us permission to send you our weekly newsletter, to email you about your subscription and to allow us to send you rare editorial emails that we feel will be of interest and that fit with WHEREANDNOW.COM’s editorial direction. We will not pass your email address on to any other body or person.
If we ever request that you volunteer additional information, such as financial data or age (in an online survey, for example) your response will always be voluntary. In addition, there will always be a box for you to check if you choose to enable us to disclose such information to a third party.
Third-party disclosure of personal information
Required disclosures: WHEREANDNOW.COM cooperates with all law-enforcement inquiries and reserves the right to disclose personally identifying or aggregate information in connection with a subpoena or other court-sanctioned demand for such information.
WHEREANDNOW.COM guards access to information, data quality, and the security of servers where information is stored. Despite password protection we cannot guarantee that a hacker will not obtain access to communications between you and the site.

Our site is not directed to users under the age of 13. WHEREANDNOW.COM will not knowingly (i) collect information from individuals under the age of 13 ("children") or (ii) provide any personally identifying information collected from children, regardless of its source, to any third party for any purpose whatsoever. No information collected through the site from users self-identified as children will knowingly be used for any marketing or promotional purposes whatsoever, either inside or outside WHEREANDNOW.COM.
