Privacy Policy


Effective Date: February 2019.

1. Introduction and Overview.

This Privacy Policy describes how Air Mail LLC ("Air Mail," "we," "our," or "us") collects, uses, and shares information about you as well as your rights and choices about such use and sharing, and applies to your use of our website available at www.airmail.news and interaction with all features, content, related emails and other services (collectively, the "Service"). This Privacy Policy does not apply to our information collection activities outside of the Service (unless otherwise stated below or at the time of collection).

By using the Service, you agree to our Terms of Use and consent to our collection, use and disclosure practices, and other activities as described in this Privacy Policy. If you do not agree and consent, discontinue use of the Service.

If you have any questions or wish to exercise your rights and choices, please contact us as set out in the "Contact Us" section below.

2. Information Collection.

A. Information You Provide.

We collect information when you use the Service, including information you provide when you create an account, update your profile, access our content, make a purchase, or contact customer support. We may use Service Providers (defined below) to collect information.

The information we collect includes information that identifies you personally (whether alone or in combination). Some examples of information you provide include the following:

  • Contact Data, including your first and last name, email address, postal address, and phone number.
  • Account Credentials, including your username, password, password hints, and information for authentication and account access.
  • Demographic Data, including your age, gender, and country.
  • Billing Data, including your payment instrument number (such as a credit or debit card number), expiration date, and security code as necessary to process your payments.
  • Profile Data, including your interests and favorites.
  • Content, including content within any messages you send to us (such as feedback and questions to customer support) or publicly post on the Service (such as in product reviews or blog comments).

You may choose to voluntarily submit other information to us through the Service that we do not request, and, in such instances, you are solely responsible for such information.

B. Information Collected Automatically.

In addition, we automatically collect information when you use the Service. Some examples of information we automatically collect include: website use data, including data about the pages you visit, the emails and advertisements you view, the time of day you browse, and your referring and exiting pages; device connectivity data, including data about the type of device or browser you use, your device's operating software, your internet service provider, your device's regional and language settings, and device identifiers such as IP address; and location data, including imprecise location data (such as location derived from an IP address or data that indicates a city or postal code level).

We use various current – and later – developed technologies to automatically collect information ("Tracking Technologies"), including the following:

  • Log Files, which are files that record events that occur in connection with your use of the Service.
  • Cookies, which are small data files stored on your device that act as a unique tag to identify your browser. We use two types of cookies: session cookies and persistent cookies. Session cookies make it easier for you to navigate our website and expire when you close your browser. Persistent cookies help with personalizing your experience, remembering your preferences, and supporting security features. Additionally, persistent cookies allow us to bring you advertising both on and off the Service. Persistent cookies may remain on your device for extended periods of time, and generally may be controlled through your browser settings.
  • Pixels (also known as web beacons), which is code embedded in a website, video, email, or advertisement that sends information about your use to a server. There are various types of pixels, including image pixels (which are small graphic images) and JavaScript pixels (which contains JavaScript code). When you access a website, video, email, or advertisement that contains a pixel, the pixel may permit us or a third party to drop or read cookies on your browser. Pixels are used in combination with cookies to track activity by a particular browser on a particular device. We may incorporate pixels from third parties that allow us track our conversions, bring you advertising both on and off the Service, and provide you with additional functionality, such as the ability to connect our Service with your social media account.
  • Location-Identifying Technologies, which are technologies used to collect your location. For example, GPS, WiFi, and Bluetooth may be used to collect precise location data when you consent to precise location tracking. Location data may be used for purposes such as verifying your device's location and delivering or restricting relevant content and advertising based on that location.

Some information about your use of the Service and certain Third Party Services (defined below) may be collected using Tracking Technologies across time and services and used by us and third parties for purposes such as to associate different devices you use, and deliver relevant ads and/or other content to you on the Service and certain Third Party Services.

For further information on Tracking Technologies and your rights and choices regarding them, see the "Third Parties" and "Your Rights and Choices" sections below.

C. Information from Other Sources.

We also collect information from other sources, including publicly available sources (such as through internet searches) or social networks when you engage with our content, reference our Site, or grant us permission to access information from the social networks. To the extent we combine third party sourced information with information we have collected through the Service, we will treat the combined information in accordance with the practices described in this Privacy Policy, plus any additional restrictions imposed by the source of the data.

For further information on Third Party Services, see the "Third Parties" section below.

A. Third Party Services.

Our Service contains content from and hyperlinks to websites, locations, platforms, and services operated and owned by third parties ("Third Party Services").

Also, if you publicly reference our Service on a Third Party Service (e.g., by using a hashtag associated with Air Mail in a post), we may use your reference on or in connection with our Service. If you use a Third Party Feature, both we and the applicable third party may have access to and use information associated with your use of the Third Party Feature, and you should carefully review the third party's privacy policy and terms of use.

Accordingly, we do not monitor or take action with respect to "Do Not Track" signals or other mechanisms. For more information on "Do Not Track," visit http://www.allaboutdnt.com.

Please be aware that if you disable or remove Tracking Technologies some parts of the Service may not function correctly.

E. Your California Privacy Rights.

California's "Shine the Light" law permits customers in California to request certain details about how certain types of their information are shared with third parties and, in some cases, affiliates, for those third parties' and affiliates' own direct marketing purposes. Under the law, a business should either provide California customers certain information upon request or permit California customers to opt in to, or opt out of, this type of sharing.

Air Mail will not share personal information as defined by California's "Shine the Light" law with third parties and/or affiliates for such third parties' and affiliates' own direct marketing purposes. If you are a California resident and wish to obtain information about our compliance with this law, please contact us as set out in the "Contact Us" section below. Requests must include "California Privacy Rights Request" in the first line of the description and include your name, street address, city, state, and ZIP code.

The Service is intended for a general audience and not directed to children under thirteen (13) years of age.

If you are a parent or guardian and believe Air Mail has collected such information in a manner not permitted by COPPA, please contact us as set out in the "Contact Us" section below, and we will remove such data to the extent required by COPPA.

8. Data Security.

We implement and maintain reasonable administrative, physical, and technical security safeguards to help protect information about you from loss, theft, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction. Nevertheless, transmission via the internet is not completely secure and we cannot guarantee the security of information about you.

Data protection laws in the U.S. and other jurisdictions may be different from those of your country of residence. Your use of the Service or provision of any information therefore constitutes your consent to the transfer to and from, processing, usage, sharing, and storage of information about you in the U.S. and other jurisdictions as set out in this Privacy Policy.
