The International Herald Tribune takes your online privacy very seriously. Therefore, unless you explicitly state otherwise, or we explicitly state otherwise, any data that we collect as a result of your use of the site remains confidential.
If a user wishes to subscribe to any of our email bulletins, we ask for some basic demographic information. We use this information to learn about what type of person is using our site but we do not share this information with any advertisers or partners. In the future, we may use the demographic information that we gather to send you content that may be of special interest to you; for example, to users who register for our Luxury event email updates we may let you know about an upcoming design event.
Out of respect for the privacy of our users we offer the option to "opt out" of our email updates. If there is a change to one of the services that you are signed-up to, we may send you a service update that it is not possible to opt out of.
In almost all cases, when you go to a Web site, servers log your interaction with the site in something called a log file. Standard log files like ours contain basic information like what time what pages were viewed, and the IP address of the visitor. We use this information to analyze trends, administer the site, track users' movements, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. We make no effort to identify IP addresses with individual users and we do not share this information with external third parties.
This Web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that the IHT is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every Web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this site.
