Privacy Policy

Gazette Communications has created this statement in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to protecting your privacy. The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for this website: IOWACOMMERCE.COM

We use your IP address, or the location of your computer on the Internet, to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our Web site. Your IP address is used to gather broad demographic information.

We may use cookies to deliver content specific to your interests and to save your registration information so you don't have to re-enter it each time you visit our site. Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies. If you prefer, you can reset your browser either to notify you when you've received a cookie, or to refuse to accept cookies. You should understand that areas of certain sites will not function properly if you set your browser to not accept cookies.

Our site's registration form, contests and online surveys require users to give us contact information (like, but not limited to, their name and email address) and demographic information (like, but not limited to, their zip code, age, or income level). From time to time we use customer contact information from the registration form to send the user information about our company. The customer's contact information is also used to contact the visitor when necessary. We use demographic and profile data to tailor our visitor's experience at our site, showing them content that we think they might be interested in and displaying content according to their preferences. This information is shared with advertisers on an aggregate basis, to demonstrate facts about our overall audience. This helps facilitate their decisions to advertise here, which is to our benefit and yours. Users may opt-out of receiving future mailings; see the choice/opt-out section below.

When you are on IOWACOMMERCE.COM and are asked for personal information, you are sharing that information with IOWACOMMERCE.COM and Gazette Communications Inc. alone, unless it is specifically stated otherwise. Please be aware that IOWACOMMERCE.COM advertisers or Web sites that have links on our site may collect personally identifiable information about you.

We do NOT knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of thirteen. If we become aware that we have inadvertently received personally-identifiable information from a user under the age of thirteen, we will delete such information from our records.
