Information sharing and disclosure

  • When you post a photo, article, postcard or comment, your Everywhere Magazine ID or alias that you are posting under is visible to other users.
  • If you post personal information online that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return. Everywhere Magazine does not rent or sell your personal information.

  • It may be necessary to share information in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding suspected or actual illegal activities, including without limitation, fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of Everywhere Magazine’s terms of use, or as otherwise permitted or required by law. We will transfer information about you if Everywhere Magazine is acquired by or merged with another company. In this event, Everywhere Magazine will notify you by email or by putting a prominent notice on the Everywhere Magazine web site before information about you is transferred and becomes subject to a different privacy policy. Everywhere Magazine may share demographic information with business partners, such as “53% of users who regularly use Everywhere Magazine are between 18 and 24” or the like. No personally identifiable information will ever be used without your permission (i.e. we will ask you for a quote or testimonial).
  • When you upload a photo to Everywheremag.com we ask for high-resolution images for printing in the magazine; however these high-resolution images are not available to the public, only the low-resolution web versions not suitable for printing are visible.
