Email and Postal Mail Deployment, Data Analysis

We provide customer lists and other information to third party companies who provide us with specialized services, such as email message deployment, merge-purge (identifying and removing duplicate addresses), postal mailing, subscription fulfillment, customer service and telemarketing, research, statistical analysis, hosting and other data and transaction processing. These companies work on our behalf and we do not provide our lists or other data to them for their own, permanent use. Please note that we may provide certain personal information (including credit card information, which we do not retain on our servers) directly to third parties solely for the purpose of processing sales of subscriptions or other services through our sites, and that such third parties’ collection and use of that information shall be governed by such third party’s own privacy policy, if any. In addition, we may enter into agreements with certain third parties to enhance the personal information they already possess about certain individuals, as a result of which we may provide that third party with other personal information about you in our possession. We also may provide to other companies lists of customers who have opted-out of email promotion for NextStep4it or other products, so these customers can be suppressed from mailings those companies send on NextStep4it behalf. In addition, if you unsubscribe from a mailing we send to our own list on behalf of a third party, your removal instruction may also be supplied to the third party and added to their own suppression file. We are not responsible for the use of your information by any third parties.

Change of Ownership of NextStep4it

Some or all personal information maintained by NextStep4it may be subject to transfer to another company in the event of a change of ownership of NextStep4it or sale of any part of NextStep4it.

Pixel Tags

Like many web sites, NextStep4it may use pixel tags, also known as clear gifs, beacons, spotlight tags or web bugs, to improve our understanding of site traffic, visitor behavior, and response to promotional campaigns. Pixel tags are also used as a supplement to our server logs and other methods of traffic and response measurement. Pixel tags are sometimes used in conjunction with small Javascript-based applications, and for the purpose of traffic measurement. We may also implement pixel tags provided by other companies for the same purpose. You can disable pixel tags by changing your browser settings to omit images and disable Javascript; or there are commercial software packages available that can omit pixel tags and most advertisements.

Online Ad Serving

NextStep4it uses third-party advertising service companies to serve advertisements when you visit our sites. These companies may collect and use information (not including your name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, or any other personal information you have provided us) about your visits to our and other web sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you.

Several companies provide email deployment services for our email messages.

Some of our advertisers use third-party companies to serve their advertisements on our sites and, in some cases, in our HTML-formatted newsletters. Often, these third-party advertising companies employ cookie and pixel tag technologies to measure the effectiveness of Web and e-mail advertisements. They may also employ cookie and pixel tag technologies to create a record of interaction with our site content that they use in conjunction with their advertising which appears on other sites. Use of their tracking technology is subject to their own privacy policies.
