News Revenue Hub uses Google Analytics to monitor website traffic on our Website, including demographics and interest reporting, but we do not collect any identifiable personal information this way.

Your Access to and Control Over Information
- See what data we have about you, if any.
- Change/correct any data we have about you.
- Have us delete any data we have about you, in accordance with the “right to be forgotten.”
- Express any concern you have about our use of your data.
Note that in certain circumstances, we may not be able to comply with your request to modify or delete your data if the storage or disclosure of your data is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation and/or the establishment, exercise, or defense of legal claims.
We take reasonable precautions to protect your information. Please understand, however, that no security system is impenetrable. We cannot guarantee the security of our databases, nor can we guarantee that the information that you supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted to and from us over the Internet. In particular, e-mail may not be secure, and you should, therefore, take special care in deciding what information you send to us via e-mail.
To help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect, including, but not limited to, the following:
- Our Website is scanned on a regular basis for security holes and known vulnerabilities in order to make your visit as safe as possible.
- We implement a variety of security measures when a user makes a contribution, submits, or accesses their information to maintain the safety of your Personally Identifiable Information.
- In addition, information you supply is encrypted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology.
While we use systems to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only authorized agents of News Revenue Hub who need the information to perform a specific job (i.e. to operate, develop, improve or support our Services) are granted access to Personally Identifiable Information and are required to keep the information confidential.
Notwithstanding, we may disclose Personally Identifiable Information to provide the Services, or when you authorize or instruct us to do so. We may also disclose Personally Identifiable Information to companies, agents, contractors, service providers, or others engaged to perform functions on our behalf (such as processing of payments, provision of data storage, hosting of our Website, marketing of our products and Services, conducting audits, and performing web analytics). We may license third party software to include in or use with the Services, in which case we may disclose Personally Identifiable Information to the licensor. These third parties’ collection and use of information are subject to their own privacy policies, some of which you can read here:

Fair Information Practices
The Fair Information Practices Principles form the backbone of privacy law in the United States and the concepts they include have played a significant role in the development of data protection laws around the globe. Understanding the Fair Information Practice Principles and how they should be implemented is critical to comply with the various privacy laws that protect personal information. There are five (5) core principles of Fair Information Practice: (i) consumers should be provided notice of whom the information is going to and what it will be used for; (ii) choices should be offered and consent required; (iii) consumers should be able to access and alter data; (iv) data should be accurate and secure; and (v) mechanisms in place for enforcement and redress are necessary. In order to be compliant with Fair Information Practices we will take the following responsive action, should a data breach occur:
- We will notify you via email within seven (7) business days.
- We will notify users via in-site notification within seven (7) business days.
We also agree to the Individual Redress Principle which requires that individuals have the right to legally pursue enforceable rights against data collectors and processors who fail to adhere to the law. This principle requires not only that individuals have enforceable rights against data users, but also that individuals have recourse to courts or government agencies to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.
