GENERAL RULES AND DEFINITIONS
Your continued use of the Site and Services now, or following the posting of notice of changes in these operating rules, will indicate acceptance by you of such rules.
INFORMATION WE COLLECT
The information we may collect includes:
- The type of device you are using to view CE

- Anonymous information, such as your internet service provider, IP address and internet browsing software, collected by our website
There are links on the Site to third party websites over which CE has no control. CE accepts no responsibility or liability for any third party practices on third party websites. CE advises you to carefully read third party privacy statements prior to the use of any third party website.
If you sign up for our newsletter, which is administered through Mailchimp, we will store some of your information, including your email address, IP address and certain information about the links you click within the emails we send you, on a Mailchimp server. Neither we nor Mailchimp will ever sell your email address or share it with any other party, unless we are legally compelled to do so.
If you contact Mailchimp directly regarding your subscription to our newsletter, Mailchimp may contact you directly; otherwise, Mailchimp will never contact you. Only authorised Mailchimp employees have access to our subscriber list. You are always free to unsubscribe from our newsletter.
HOW WE USE YOUR INFORMATION
We use your information only to complete operations necessary to produce and distribute CE. We do not share your information with third parties except (such as in the case of Mailchimp) when it’s necessary to complete the functions of CE.
When you email us, we will use your email address only for the purpose of responding to you and for no other purpose.
Sometimes we may use anonymous information about your use of our site in combination with other users’ usage to make decisions about the content and design of CE. We may also share these anonymous statistics with potential sponsors and partners.
We may disclose your information in response to court orders or other legal process or to establish or exercise our legal rights or to defend against legal claims.
We may disclose your information when we believe it necessary or desirable in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of our policies, and/or to protect our rights and property.
In the future, we may sell, buy, merge, or partner with other companies or businesses. In such transactions, user information may be among the transferred assets, and we will notify you in advance of such transfer.
We have put in place systems to safeguard the information you provide to us. We will never provide access to our databases to any third party, except to the extent necessary to conduct the operations of the magazine (such as providing user data to Mailchimp).
If you are aged 16 or under, please get your parent/guardian’s permission beforehand whenever you provide personal information to the Site. Users without this consent are not allowed to provide us with personal information. If we become aware that you are under 16 and are attempting to or have submitted personal information via the Site without your parent/guardian’s permission, we will not accept such information and we will take steps to remove such information from our records. This may involve us having to access and verify your age and other relevant details.
