Outlook Newspapers Privacy Policy

Outlook Newspapers believes that strong community newspapers are essential to building strong communities. We strive to produce economically sound newspapers that foster pride in the communities they serve and to make a difference in the quality of life for residents and merchants.

Your privacy and security are important to us. We recognize and respect your need for privacy and security as you visit any of the websites of Outlook Newspapers. When you visit our sites to view any pages, read content, or visit our advertisers, you do so without telling us who you are and without revealing any personal information. While we do not collect identifying information about visitors to our sites, we do use standard software to collect information for the strict purpose of tracking activity on our sites. This allows us to better understand how many people use our sites and which pages and features are most popular. The only information we normally collect and store is:

  • The name of your Internet service provider
  • The web site that referred you to us (if any)
  • The date and time the pages were accessed
  • The page or pages you requested
  • Your IP address, its geographic location, and your browser agent

There are instances where you may elect to provide us with personal information. If you fill out one of our forms, purchase advertising, or send us email, you are transmitting the information that appears to you in the form or the message. This will typically include information like your name, mailing address, email address, the kind of request you are making, and any other information necessary to fulfill your request. You never transmit personally identifying information that you do not enter yourself and this is always your option; this information cannot be collected unless you specifically elect to send it to us. This information is used internally only for the purpose of fulfilling the request or for contacting you directly and is not given or sold to any other organization.

When you supply a credit card as part of your transaction with us this information is securely transmitted directly to our payment processor and is not stored by, nor is it visible to, Outlook Newspapers. 

If you upload images to the website, such as you might do when purchasing advertising or announcements, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. We cannot guarantee that site visitors who may view these images will not be able to extract location data. 

We use cookies to enhance and customize your user experience on our websites. We may also allow third-party companies (e.g., Google) to use cookies to collect information about your use of our sites. Our privacy policy does not cover these third party companies. Please contact these third party companies (e.g., Google) directly for more information about their privacy policy and your choices regarding the information collected by them.

We reserve the right to change our privacy policy without advanced notice. A revised policy statement will only apply to data collected from its effective date.
