This information will only be shared with third parties who perform tasks required to complete the purchase transaction. Examples of this include fulfilling orders and processing credit card payments.

If this information is to be shared with a third party other than LatinVision Media, we will notify you at the time of collection. If you do not want any personal information shared, you may always decline to participate in the sweepstakes, contest or special offer.
Reader Surveys, Reader Panels and Market Research
LatinVision Media may collect personal information from readers in connection with voluntary surveys. Data may be collected on our Web sites, on the phone or through the mail. The information you provide in answer to optional survey questions may be shared, but only in the aggregate, with advertisers and partners unless we notify you otherwise at the time of collection.
Some of our readers are invited to be members of optional Reader Panels that are administered through a third party we have hired for that purpose. Panel members agree to participate in surveys, polls or discussions about their readership of LatinVision Media, their household/personal characteristics and their purchase behavior. Readers are primarily contacted via e-mail, which link to online surveys, polls or discussions, but may occasionally be contacted by telephone or mail. All survey data is reported and/or used in aggregate form only, and no personally identifiable information is released. From time to time, we may use different technologies. including cookies, to better understand answers to our surveys.

Mobile Messaging Service
LatinVision Media uses the information collected from your interaction with LatinVision Media by Text Messaging Service (SMS) (“SMS Service”) solely for the purposes of improving the SMS Service.

Your wireless carrier and other service providers also collect data about your SMS Service usage, and their practices are governed by their own privacy policies.
LatinVision Media collects the mobile phone number you use to send us a text message and the content of the messages sent between you and LatinVision Media. When you send a text message to LatinVision Media or via LatinVision Media, we log the incoming phone number, the wireless provider associated with the number, and the date and time of the transaction. The only information we automatically collect is that related to the use of our Mobile Services. LatinVision Media uses this data to analyze the message traffic in order to operate, develop and improve our SMS Service.
Non-personally Identifiable Information
In addition to personally identifiable information, we also collect certain non-personally identifiable information through technology and tools, including cookies, Web Beacons and log data. We aggregate and analyze this information in order to learn more about how our Web sites are used.

LatinVision.com has an arrangement with third parties, in which we may use your profile information to provide you with customized advertising and a short list of customized headlines when they read Business or Technology articles on LatinVision.com. By way of example, a user on LatinVision.com might see a box highlighting headlines about the energy business if the industry selected in his or her third party profile is "Energy sector". This is facilitated by sharing a cookie that contains non-personally identifiable information such as Industry and Job Function from that user’s third party profile and matching that with relevant headlines.

Web Beacons/action tags/pixel tags), alone or in conjunction with cookies, to better manage their advertising on our site. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies. Clear gifs may alert the advertiser's server about the online movements of Web users. For instance, advertisers may place a clear gif allowing them to recognize an existing cookie on your browser if from the same service. The main difference between cookies and clear gifs is that clear gifs are invisible on the page and are much smaller, about the size of the period at the end of this sentence.
