What information does Beloved Publications collect?
Our primary goal in collecting personal information is to provide you with the best and most useful content and services.

These include access to subscription-only areas, the ability to post opinions or other content, participation in contests, email newsletters, forums and message boards.

What is Beloved Publications practice regarding cookies?
Your Internet browser has a feature called cookies, which stores small amounts of data on your computer about your visit to any of our sites. You do not need to have cookies turned on to visit our site, although active participation in certain areas of our site may require cookies.

By adjusting your settings on your browser, you may elect not to allow cookies to be collected.
We also use technologies, including electronic images known as Web bugs—sometimes called transparent GIFs, clear GIFs, or beacons—that allow us to track general user-traffic patterns. We also automatically receive and record information from our servers and from your browser, including your IP address, the time of your visit to pages on our site, and information about pages you visited. Unless you have registered for one of our products or services, the information we gather through the use of tracking technologies cannot be matched with any personally identifiable information about you.
