Dulcinea Media offers users the option to subscribe to email newsletters that keep subscribers informed about developments on our Web site, such as new features or articles and guides that we publish. If you wish to subscribe to our newsletter(s), we, and our third-party email vendor, will use your name and email address that you voluntarily provide to us to send the newsletter, and that you confirm through a confirmation email request. Out of respect for your privacy, we provide you a simple and easy way to unsubscribe through a link within our newsletter email. We and our vendor use security measures to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of your data used by our system. We will not share, sell, or rent your individual personal information (including your name or email address) with anyone without your consent or unless required by law. Information submitted to us is only available to employees managing this information for the purpose of sending you emails based on your request for information and to contracted service providers for purposes of providing services relating to our communications with you.
From time-to-time we may provide you the opportunity to participate in contests or surveys on our site. If you participate, we will request certain personally identifiable information from you. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and you therefore have a choice whether or not to disclose this information. The requested information typically includes contact information (such as name and address) and demographic information (such as zip code).
We may use a third party service provider to conduct these surveys or contests; that company will be prohibited from using our users' personally identifiable information for any other purpose without your consent. We will not share the personally identifiable information you provide through a contest or survey with other third parties unless we give you notice and the choice to opt-out.
If you choose to use our referral service to tell a friend about our site or an article on our site, we will ask you for your friend's name and email address. We will send your friend a one-time email inviting him or her to visit the site. Dulcinea Media stores this information for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email.

We employ or our third party advertising partner employ Web beacons that help us better manage content on our site by informing us what content is effective. Web beacons are clear gifs (tiny graphics) with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of Web users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user's computer hard drive, Web beacons are embedded invisibly on Web pages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. The Web beacons do not collect any personally identifiable information from our users. We do not tie the information gathered by Web beacons to our customers' personally identifiable information.
We use Web beacons in our HTML-based emails to let us know which emails have been opened by recipients. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications and the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns. If you would like to opt-out of these emails, please see "Newsletters".
Dulcinea Media uses trusted and reputable other advertising companies, called third-party ad servers or ad networks, to serve advertisements within our Web site. Because your web browser must request these advertising banners from the ad network Web site, these companies can send their own cookies to your cookie file. We only authorize our third-party ad servers to employ anonymous cookies for ad delivery and anonymous targeting. Our third-party ad servers do not collect, nor do we give them access, to any personally identifying information about you.
If you want to opt-out of third party ad network cookies, you may do so through the Network Advertising Initiative.
