Third Party Links
The Luxe Chronicles may provide links to third party Web sites or access to third party content. The Luxe Chronicles does not control, endorse or guarantee content found on such sites and is not responsible for any content, associated links, resources, or services associated with a third party site. Links and access to these sites are provided for your convenience only. The Luxe Chronicles shall not be liable for any loss or damage of any sort associated with your use of third party content.
Your internet browser has a feature called "cookies" which stores small amounts of data on your computer about your visit to visit www.theluxechronicles.com. You do not need to have cookies turned on to visit most of our site, although active participation in certain areas of our site may require cookies. Cookies alone tell The Luxe Chronicles nothing about who you are unless you specifically give us personally identifiable information when, in which case, we may use the information to enhance your services in the ways described below. You may elect not to allow cookies to be collected by adjusting your settings on your browser.
Third Party Cookies
Like most standard Web site servers, The Luxe Chronicles uses log files. This includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site, track user's movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses and other like data are not linked to personally identifiable information. We may use a tracking utility that uses log files to analyze user movement.
Though we make every effort to preserve user privacy, The Luxe Chronicles may need to disclose personal information when required by law wherein we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with ongoing judicial proceedings, a court order or legal process served on The Luxe Chronicles.
Third Party Advertising
The ads eventually appearing on this Web site are delivered to users by various advertising services. Information about users' visit to this site, such as number of times they have viewed an ad (but not including username, date of birth, or any other personal information), is used to serve ads to users on this site.
The Luxe Chronicles maintains a mailing list. In order to sign up to receive regular emails from this mailing list, users must submit information including a valid email address and demographic information such as location and interests. This information will be used in aggregate form only in order to assess general user interest in various internal and third party products and services. Your personal and contact information will not be shared with any other organization. Users who choose to sign up for the mailing list will receive regular emails from The Luxe Chronicles including new articles added to the site as well as emails from third party site sponsors. If you do not wish to receive emails from third party advertisers, please do not sign up for The Luxe Chronicles mailing list.
Discussion Group and Cookies
In order to further enhance The Luxe Chronicles, we may eventually launch a discussion board service where users can discuss common topics of interest. Users will have the option of signing up for this service, and to do so must submit information including a valid email address. The Luxe Chronicles uses this information to screen out users who leave comments prohibited by our terms and conditions of use and to pick out topics of interest to discussion board users. The Luxe Chronicles will not pass this information to any other organization except in aggregate form.
By setting a cookie on The Luxe Chronicles, users will not have to log in a password more than once, thereby saving time while on the The Luxe Chronicles discussion board. We store a cookie on each user's machine that contains a username and encrypted password. You can configure your browser to accept all cookies, reject all cookies, or notify you when a cookie is set. If you reject all cookies, you will not be able to use The Luxe Chronicles products or services that require you to sign in and you may not be able to take full advantage of all offerings. However, not all The Luxe Chronicles services require that you accept cookies.
In the event The Luxe Chronicles goes through a business transition, such as a merger, acquisition by another company, or sale of a portion of its assets, users' personal information will, in most instances, be part of the assets transferred.
