Collection and Use of Personal Information
Personal information means any information that may be used to identify you, such as, your name, title, phone number, email address, or mailing address.
In general, you can browse our web site without giving us any personal information. We use WebTrends Reporting Service to analyze traffic to this web site in order to understand our customer's and visitor's needs and to continually improve our site for them. WebTrends Reporting Services collects only anonymous, aggregate statistics. For example, we do not tie a specific visit to a specific IP address.
If you want to subscribe to one of our newsletters, we ask you to simply provide your business email address. In that case, we use your email address only in connection with providing you updates about our magazine, our weekly newsletter and for no other purpose.
Additional activities on our site require you to be registered — for example, to download a digital copy, to subscribe for home delivery or to make a purchase. As part of the registration process, we ask you to provide additional personal information. We use that information for telling you about products, fulfilling your request, to verify the accuracy of our records or to contact you regarding customer satisfaction surveys.

Newberry Publishing/TexasGolfOn.com also disclose your personal information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary in connection with a sale, merger, transfer, exchange or other disposition (whether of assets, stock or otherwise) of all or a portion of a business of Newberry Publishing/TexasGolfOn.com and/or its subsidiaries or to (1) conform to legal requirements or comply with legal process served on Newberry Publishing/TexasGolfOn.com or this web site; (2) protect and defend the rights or property of Newberry Publishing/TexasGolfOn.com and this web site; (3) enforce its agreements with you, or (4) act in urgent circumstances to protect personal safety or the public.
