IV. Use of Website Data | Cookies and Similar Technologies

When you visit or interact with the Website, we and other companies we work with may deploy and use cookies and similar technologies (such as web beacons, local shared objects and other tracking technologies) for a variety of reasons, including to collect Website data in order to enhance the security of the Website, perform analytics concerning your use of the Website, and comply with and enforce applicable legal requirements, industry standards, and our policies.

We may also use Google Analytics cookies to collect information about how visitors use the Website.  These cookies collect information in the aggregate to give us insight into how the Website is being used.  We anonymize IP addresses in Google Analytics, and the anonymized data is transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States.  Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf.  Google will not associate your anonymized IP address with any other data held by Google.  For an overview of these Google Analytics cookies, please visit this link. You may install a Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on by going to this link.

You may have other means of controlling the use of cookies and similar technologies on this and other websites.  You may be able to instruct your browser or mobile device to warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or to reject all or certain kinds of cookies.  Typically, you can do this by changing the privacy settings on your internet browser or device.  However, if you choose to reject cookies, the Website may not function properly and some Website services may be diminished.

Do Not Track

Certain web browsers may allow you to enable a “do not track” option that sends signals to the websites you visit indicating that you do not want your online activities tracked.  This is different from blocking cookies because browsers with the “do not track” option selected may still accept cookies.  Right now, there is no industry standard for how companies should respond to “do not track” signals, although one may be adopted in the future.  We do not respond to “do not track” signals at this time.  If we do so in the future, we will modify this privacy notice accordingly.  More information about “do not track” is available at www.allaboutdnt.com.

V. Links to Third-Party Websites

Modern Life may provide links to websites that are owned or operated by other companies (“third-party websites”).  When you use a link on the Website to visit a third-party website, you will be subject to that website’s privacy and security practices, which may differ from ours.  You should familiarize yourself with the privacy policy, terms of use, and security practices of the linked third-party website before providing any information on that website.  We make no warranties or representations about third-party websites.

VI. Security

We use reasonable safeguards to protect and limit access to Personal Information. However, no transmission or storage of data can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, despite our reasonable efforts to protect your information, we cannot ensure the security of any information you provide to use or we collect about you. Please also note that information you send to us electronically may not be secure when it is transmitted to us.  We recommend that you do not use unsecure channels to communicate sensitive or confidential information to us.

We also restrict access to Personal Information to our employees and others who we know must use it to provide our products and services.  Their use of Personal Information is limited by law, our employee code of conduct, and written agreements where appropriate.  

VII. International Users

The website is intended only for use in the United States, and we may transfer your Personal Information to the United States and process it there. The laws of the United States may not be as protective of your information as the laws of your country. By using the Website, you agree and consent to the transfer of your Personal Information to the United States. 

VIII. Children’s Information

Our Website is intended for general audiences and is not directed to, nor do we knowingly collect information directly from, children under the age of 13. If you are a parent or legal guardian of a child under 13, we encourage you to monitor your children’s use of the Internet. If we become aware that we have received the Personal Information of a child under 13 without parent or guardian authorization, we will take reasonable measures to delete such information.
