Information collected on our websites
Certain content areas and features of CarrollsPaper.com are accessible only to registered users, and registration requires that you provide some personal information, including a valid e-mail address. This information is collected to help us understand our audience so we can improve the service we provide. Information about individuals is private and will not be shared with advertisers or other third parties, except in aggregate form. Herald Publishing will not give up control of your e-mail address to any third party. Herald Publishing reserves the right and at times might use e-mail addresses collected through the registration process for Herald Publishing marketing activities. Those marketing activities might involve the use of software and hosting services provided by third-party vendors. No third-party vendor will be authorized to use data collected by Herald Publishing for any purpose outside the scope of service provided to Herald Publishing. Users have the right to opt out of receiving marketing or any other kind of e-mail from Herald Publishing, and Herald Publishing will make it easy for users to exercise that option via a hyperlink in all e-mails sent by Herald Publishing or any third-party vendor.
Herald Publishing uses server logs and third party software programs to measure traffic to our website. While these logs and programs do not record user-specific information, they do record IP addresses, pages being requested, the date and time of the requests, referrals from other websites and information about the browser and operating systems of our users. This information is used by Herald Publishing and shared with advertisers only in aggregate form.
We may allow advertisers to choose the characteristics of users who will see their advertisements, and we may use any of the non-personally identifying information we have collected (including information you may have decided not to show to other users, such as your birth year or other sensitive personal information or preferences) to select the appropriate audience for those advertisements. We do not identify you to the advertiser.

Some features of Herald Publishing’s websites will not function correctly if you do not allow cookies. Some of our advertisers may serve cookies to your browser as well. Herald Publishing does not have control over cookies placed by our advertisers. However, you have the ability to control whether or not your browser will accept cookies from certain advertisers or ad servers.
