If you decide to visit a Third Party Service, you are subject to that Third Party Service’s privacy policy and practices, and not this Privacy Policy. We encourage you to carefully review the legal and privacy notices of all Third Party Services and other digital services that you visit.

A cookie typically contains the name of the domain (internet location) from which the cookie originated, the “lifetime” of the cookie (i.e., when it expires) and a randomly generated unique number or similar identifier.  We may also use other cookies and other data collection tools (such as web beacons and server logs), which we collectively refer to as “data collection tools,” to help improve your experience with the Services. For example, data collection tools help us remember users and make the Services more relevant to them.

9.         ADDITIONAL RIGHTS – CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS

A. California Data Access & Deletion Rights

For California residents, the CCPA allows you to make certain requests about your personal information. Specifically, the CCPA allows you to request us to:

  • Inform you about the categories of personal information we collect or disclose about you; the categories of sources of such information; the business or commercial purpose for collecting your personal information; and the categories of third parties with whom we share/disclose personal information.
  • Provide access to and/or a copy of certain personal information we hold about you.
  • Delete certain personal information we have about you.
  • Provide you with information about the financial incentives that we offer to you, if any.

Please note that certain information may be exempt from such requests under California law. For example, we need certain information in order to provide the Services to you.

Deletion Requests

While you have the right to request that Modern Luxury delete any of your personal information that we collected from you and retained, certain exceptions may apply. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request, we will delete (and direct applicable service providers to delete) your personal information from our records, unless an exception applies.

We may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service provider(s) to:

  • Complete the transaction for which we collected the personal information, provide a good or service that you requested, take actions reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with you, or otherwise perform our contract with you.
  • Detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, or prosecute those responsible for such activities.
  • Debug products to identify and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality.
  • Exercise free speech, ensure the right of another consumer to exercise their free speech rights, or exercise another right provided for by law.
  • Comply with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act (Cal. Penal Code § 1546 et. seq.).
  • Enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with consumer expectations based on your relationship with us.
  • Comply with a legal obligation.
  • Make other internal and lawful uses of that information that are compatible with the context in which you provided it.

Verification: We will take reasonable steps to verify your identity before responding to a request, which may include, depending on your request and relationship with you verifying your name, email address, address, and/or having you respond to an email from us.

You are also permitted to designate an authorized agent to submit certain requests on your behalf. In order for an authorized agent to be verified, you must provide the authorized agent with signed, written permission to make such requests or a power of attorney. We may also follow up with you to verify your identity before processing the authorized agent’s request.

If you would like further information regarding your legal rights under California law or would like to exercise any of them, please email webmaster@modernluxury.com and include in the subject line “California Resident Privacy Request” or call our Privacy Department toll-free at (888) 514-6775.

For Modern Luxury employees or job applicants seeking further information about their legal rights under California or other applicable law, please contact Modern Luxury HR, call toll-free at (888) 514-6775, or email webmaster@modernluxury.com and include in the subject line “Employee/Applicant Privacy Question for HR.”

B. Notice of Right to Opt Out of Sale of Personal Information

California residents may opt out of the “sale” of their personal information. While we generally use “sale” regarding financial compensation, under the CCPA, “sale” is also broadly defined such that it may include allowing third parties to receive certain information, such as cookies, IP address, and/or browsing behavior, to deliver targeted advertising on the Services or other services. Advertising, including targeted advertising, enables us to provide you certain content for free and allows us to provide you offers relevant to you.

If you would like to opt out of Modern Luxury’s use of your information for such purposes that are considered a “sale” under California law, you may do so by emailing webmaster@modernluxury.com and include in the subject line “California Resident Privacy Request – Opt Out” or call our Privacy Department toll-free at (888) 514-6775.

We do not knowingly sell the personal information of minors under 16 years of age without legally-required affirmative authorization.

The CCPA further provides you with the right to not be discriminated against (as provided for in applicable law) for exercising your access, deletion or sale opt out rights. This includes that we would not provide a different level/quality of Services, nor charge you a different rate for any Services.

C. California “Shine the Light” Disclosure

The California “Shine the Light” law gives residents of California the right under certain circumstances to opt out of the sharing of certain categories of personal information (as defined in the Shine the Light law) with third parties for their direct marketing purposes. If you would like to opt out of such sharing, emailing webmaster@modernluxury.com and include in the subject line “California Resident Privacy Request – Opt Out.” If you are a California resident and would like a copy of this notice, please submit a written request to the following address: DM Luxury, LLC, 3414 Peachtree Road NE, Suite 480, Atlanta, GA 30326, Attn: Legal – Privacy Office. In your request, please specify that you want a “Modern Luxury California Privacy Rights Notice.” Please allow up to 45 days for a response.

 10.       PROTECTING THE PRIVACY OF CHILDREN 

The Services are not intended for use by children, and we will not knowingly allow children to provide us any Personal Information.  Children should always obtain permission from their parents before using the Services.  If we learn that we have received any information directly from a child under age 16 without first receiving his or her parent's verified consent, we will use that information only to respond directly to that child (or his or her parent or legal guardian) to inform the child that he or she cannot use the Services and subsequently we will delete that information. 

11.       CHANGES TO THIS PRIVACY STATEMENT 

We may modify this Privacy Policy from time to time and adjust the “Last Modified” date at the beginning of this document.  Your continued use of the Services after the Effective Date constitutes your acceptance of any amendments to the Privacy Policy, which supersedes all previous versions.

Security

Access to viewer/customer information is limited to those who specifically need it to conduct their business responsibilities. We use security techniques designed to protect our viewer/customer information—especially information that is used by employees and business partners to fulfill viewer/customer services. In addition to providing viewers/customers with the opportunity to refuse marketing offers, we release information only at the viewers'/customers' requests, or when required to do so by law or other regulatory authority. When a court order or subpoena requires us to release information, we notify the viewer/customer directly so that his/her legal rights can be exercised, if appropriate. The only exceptions to this policy are when we are prohibited by court order or law from notifying the viewer/customer, or cases in which fraud and/or criminal activity is suspected. Finally, each DML employee is personally responsible for maintaining viewer and customer confidentiality. All DML employees are required to sign an agreement that they will comply with these policies. Employees who violate these policies are subject to disciplinary action, up to and including termination of employment. Employees are expected to report violations—and may do so confidentially—to their managers or other supervisors. Each publication has an employee who has been assigned the responsibility for assuring the adherence to DML's privacy policy or you can email webmaster@modernluxury.com.

Use and Disclosure of Information

As a result of providing your personal information to us, DML publications can provide a more customized online experience, making your interaction with us more productive, helpful and fun, and will enhance the services and offers our publications bring to you. If you provide us with your e-mail address, or have done so in the past, we may send you e-mail offers or newsletters. These offers or newsletters are based on information you provided in your membership application, registration forms, surveys, or from information that may indicate purchasing preferences and lifestyle, as well as information available from external sources, such as census bureau data. These e-mail offers will come from a DML publication only. Your information or email address is never sold to a third party. All offers are carefully developed to guarantee that they meet our standards. Our goal is to target offers to viewers/customers who will find them of value. At any time, you may request to discontinue receiving these communications from us by simply replying to the e-mail address included in every e-mail message that you receive from a DML publication.

From time to time, we may offer contests or other promotions on a DML Website . If you enter a contest or participate in a promotional event, we will ask you to provide information about yourself (such as your name, address, and email address). Among other things, we will need this information to contact you if you win, and we may also use this information for marketing purposes. We may share this information with any co-sponsors of the contest or promotional event; co-sponsors will be identified in the contest rules. We may also share this information with or other third-party service providers that help administer our contests and promotional events, such as by conducting drawings, and/or delivering prizes to winners. If you do not want to provide the requested information or have the information provided to co-sponsors or other third-party service providers, please do not enter the contest or participate in the promotional event.

At times, our clients might collect personal information from viewers on DML Websites or on-site at a retail location or other DML events. The collection of this information is clearly marked as information being collected by or for a third party, and providing such information is strictly voluntary. DML may help facilitate the collection of the information by providing forms and collection boxes for the client. Sometimes this information is shared with the publication, though DML will only market to you if you have given us permission. Information gathered in this manner is shared with our client partners; and other information you may have previously provided to us remains private.

We do monitor URL click-throughs found in our email messages. The click-through rate is reviewed in order to track (i) participation in contests to judge effectiveness and award prizes; (ii) viewer interests; and/or (iii) response rates for DML-marketing purposes or to report to a client in aggregate form only, the response of viewers. Individual activity is never shared with employees or third parties.

Protecting the Privacy of Children

Children should always get permission from their parents before sending any information about themselves (such as their names, email addresses, and phone numbers) over the Internet, to us or to anyone else. DML Websites are not directed at children under the age of 13 and we will not knowingly allow anyone under 13 to provide us any personal identifying information. If you are under the age of 13, please do not provide any information about yourself to any DML Website.

Other Disclosures

Third-party Internet sites and services accessible through DML Websites have separate privacy and information collection practices, independent of us. DML has no responsibility or liability for these independent policies or actions. You are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your passwords, membership ID, or any account information. Please be careful and responsible whenever you are online. If you post personal information online that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return. While we aim to protect your personal information, DML cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk.

While each DML publication puts forth its best efforts in adhering to these minimum privacy standards, additional restrictions may be imposed to comply with state and local laws, and/or station-specific programs, products and services.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

The Internet is an evolving medium. If we need to change this Internet Privacy Policy at some point in the future, we will post the changes to this Internet Privacy Policy on this website and update the reference to the effective date to reflect the date of the amendment. By visiting a DML Website, you agree that your visit, and any dispute over privacy, is governed by this Internet Privacy Policy.
