The Way We Use Information

It may be necessary – by law, legal process, litigation, and/or requests from governmental authorities – for Newsrates.com to disclose certain information you have provided us to applicable third parties. We may also disclose this information if we determine that for purposes of law enforcement or other issues of public importance, disclosure is necessary or appropriate.

We do use tracking software to observe user traffic patterns throughout our site. Tracking information is used to determine which areas of our site users like and don’t like, and how well each page performs on behalf of our guests. This helps us continue to build a better service for you. We also monitor search terms and publications entered at our site as a means of knowing what interests our customers.
When you place orders, we provide the use of a secure server. The secure server software (SSL) encrypts all information you enter before it is sent to us. And all customer data we receive is protected against unauthorized access. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.
Fair Credit Billing Act
The safety of every online transaction is important to us. This means you pay nothing if unauthorized charges are made to your card as a result of shopping at our online store. Under the Fair Credit Billing Act, your bank cannot hold you liable for more than $50.00 of fraudulent charges. If your bank does hold you liable for any of this $50.00, we will cover the entire liability for you, up to the full $50.00. We will only cover this liability if the unauthorized use of your credit card resulted through no fault of your own from purchases made while using the secure server. In the event of unauthorized use of your credit card, you must notify your credit card provider in accordance with its reporting rules and procedures.
