China Newswire respects your right to privacy. Your name, email address, postal code and any other identifying information that you give us will not be revealed to any of the clients who rent our lists. Should we ever change our policy, you will be given the chance to remove yourself from our lists.

However if you send us notices, information, or emails via our "Contact Us" page, we may use some or all of the personal and corporate data you include in future articles or promotional materials for the website and company.

We hate spamming, and we know that you do, too. When you sign up for our China Newswire.com mailing list, you will receive commercial email messages only about those topical categories that you have selected. Before any mailing goes out, our staff members personally screen each marketer's message to make sure that it's relevant to the list's topic.

We respect and are committed to protecting your privacy. That is why we have adopted this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy lets you know how your personal information is processed and used. We promise that we will take steps to use your personal information only in ways that are compatible with this Privacy Policy. The following policies are only in effect for the Web pages, newsletters, discussion lists and opt-in announcement lists owned and operated by China Newswire. The following discloses our Privacy Policy.

What information are you collecting and how are you collecting it?
Every computer connected to the Internet is given a domain name and a set of numbers, that serve as that computer's "Internet Protocol" IP address. When a visitor requests a page from any Web site within the China Newswire site, our Web servers automatically recognize that visitor's domain name and IP address. The domain name and IP address reveal nothing personal about you other than the IP address from which you have accessed our site. We use this information to examine our traffic in aggregate, but do not collect and evaluate this information for individuals. Our Web servers do not record e-mail addresses of the visitors.

What are cookies?
From time to time, China Newswire or its advertisers may send a "cookie" to your computer.

What other information do you request?
We may also request your e-mail address or mailing address for the purposes of conducting a survey or to provide additional services (for example, subscriptions to e-mail newsletters, announcement lists or information about seminars) Whenever we request the identity of a visitor, we will clearly indicate the purpose of the inquiry before the information is requested.

If you choose to purchase something online, we need to know your name, e-mail address, mailing address, credit card number, and expiration date. This allows us to process and fulfill your order and to notify you of your order status. This information may also be used by us to notify you of related product and services.
