Thank you for visiting this EGM Media, LLC (“EGM”) publication. Your privacy is important to
us and to better protect your privacy, we provide this notice explaining our information practices
and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used by EGM.
What Data Is Collected By EGM?
Through EGM print publications, digital publications, websites, and other media, you can order
products, enter contests, vote in polls or otherwise express an opinion, subscribe to one of our
services, or participate in one of our online forums or communities either hosted by EGM or by
a third-party. You are able to visit much of this website and enjoy many EGM publications and
promotions without providing any personally identifiable information. Sometimes, however, we
do need your personally identifiable information to provide you with the products and services
that you request. The types of personally identifiable information that may be collected at these
pages and elsewhere include, but are not limited to: name, address, e-mail address, telephone
number, fax number, credit card information, and information about your interests in and use of
various products, programs, and services.
At some EGM sites and through certain promotions, you can submit information about other
people. For example, you might submit a person’s name and e-mail address to send an electronic
message and, if you order a gift online or offline and want it sent directly to the recipient, you
might submit the recipient’s name and address. The types of personally identifiable information
that may be collected about other people at these pages include: recipient’s name, address, e-mail
address, and telephone number.
For certain promotions, only persons who provide us with the requested personally identifiable
information will be able to order products, programs, and services or otherwise participate in the
promotion’s activities and offerings.
We also may collect certain non-personally identifiable information when you visit many of our
web pages such as the type of browser you are using, the type of operating system you are using,
and the domain name of your Internet service provider.

have won one of our contests or when we make changes to subscriber agreements, to fulfill a
request by you for an online or digital publication, or to contact you about your account with us.

cards. From time to time, we also may use this information to offer our products, programs, or

information, we cannot assure you that personally identifiable information that we collect
