Your privacy is very important to us. To enable you to understand our privacy practices, our Privacy Policy explains how we may collect and use your personal information and the circumstances in which we may share your personal information. It also describes privacy choices that are available to you (for example, how to opt-out of the collection of your geolocation information). Some key highlights about our privacy practices are as follows:

  • This app collects certain information about you and your mobile device, including information about magazines you may be reading and retail items featured in those magazines. This app may also collect geolocation information, but you may opt-out of this at any time through the privacy settings on your mobile device.
  • We use the information that we collect for purposes such as providing and improving the services and developing new products and services that we think may be of interest to you.
  • We may share aggregated information and other non-personal information with third parties.
  • This app includes social features that allow users to share personal information with other users.

Please read the Magnetique Privacy Policy for more information about how the app collects, uses, and shares information. The Magnetique Privacy Policy governs your use of the app, and is in addition to any terms and conditions imposed by your wireless carrier and any app store that you might have used to access this app.

Your California Privacy Rights

California law permits residents of California to request certain details about what personal information a company shares with third parties for the third parties' direct marketing purposes. We do not share your information with third parties for the third parties’ own and independent direct marketing purposes unless we receive your permission. If you have questions about our sharing practices or your rights under California law, please contact us through this help page:

Third Parties

How We Protect Personal Information

We use commercially reasonable security measures (including physical, electronic and procedural measures) to help safeguard personal information from unauthorized access and disclosure. However, no system for transmitting or storing information electronically can be completely secure. Therefore, we cannot guarantee that personal information or other communications will always remain secure.

We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13. If we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under the age of 13, we will delete that information from our database.
