  1. Other important information

Updates to Privacy Policy. Worldwide News or any other online publications owned by Worldwide News LLC may modify this Privacy Policy. Please look at the Effective Date at the top of this Privacy Policy to see when this Privacy Policy was last revised. Any changes to this Privacy Policy will become effective when we post the revised Privacy Policy on the Worldwide News or any other online publications owned by Worldwide News LLC Online Services. Your use of the Worldwide News or any other online publications owned by Worldwide News LLC Online Services or your provision of personal information to us following these changes means that you accept the revised Privacy Policy.

Do Not Track Disclosure. Some browsers or other tools include “Do Not Track” (DNT) features which, when turned on, send a signal to web sites you visit indicating that you do not wish to be tracked across websites over time. The Worldwide Web Consortium (W3C) has been working with industry groups and regulators to develop a DNT browser technology standard to provide a common understanding as to how to interpret the DNT signals, but to date, no standard has been adopted. Since there is no standard at this time, Worldwide News or any other online publications owned by Worldwide News LLC does not currently respond to DNT signals. Worldwide News or any other online publications owned by Worldwide News LLC will follow the progress of the W3C in developing the standard.

Location of Data. Your Personal Information may be stored, transferred to, and processed in any country where we have facilities or in which we connect service providers, and by using our products and services, you consent to the processing and transfer of information to countries outside of your country of residence, including the United States, which may have different data protection rules than in your country.

Data Retention. We will maintain your Personal Information for the period necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy unless a longer retention period is required or allowed by law.

The collection of Personal Financial Information by a Payment Service. In some cases, we may use an unaffiliated payment service to allow you to purchase a product or make payments (“Payment Service”). If you wish to purchase a product or make a payment in such a case, you will be directed to a Payment Service webpage. Any information that you provide to a Payment Service will be subject to the applicable Payment Service’s privacy policy, rather than this Privacy Policy. We have no control over and are not liable for, any Payment Service’s use of information collected through any Payment Service.

Linked Services. The Worldwide News or any other online publications owned by Worldwide News LLC Online Services may also be linked to sites operated by third parties, and may carry advertisements or offer content, special offers, functionality, games or applications developed and maintained by third parties. Some of these third party sites may be co-branded with a Worldwide News or any other online publications owned by Worldwide News LLC logo, even though they are not operated or maintained by us. For example:

A portion of Worldwide News Archive is hosted by an unrelated company – USA TV NEWS Corp – through its USA TV NEWS Corp archive service, and all article purchases are processed by USA TV NEWS Corp. USA TV NEWS Corp collects and uses your information in accordance with its privacy policy, and makes your information available to us. We will treat all information that USA TV NEWS Corp provides about you in agreement with this Privacy Policy.

The Portfolio feature is provided by a third party, USA TV NEWS CORP. USA TV NEWS Corp collects and uses your information in agreement with its privacy policy, which is separate from this one.

Worldwide News or any other online publications owned by Worldwide News LLC is not liable for the privacy practices of any such third parties, and once you leave the Worldwide News or any other online publications owned by Worldwide News LLC Online Services or click an advertisement, or sign up for a special offer, you should check the applicable privacy policy of the other service.
