Privacy Policy
Mississippi Herald is committed to respecting your privacy in the course of offering you a high quality and personalized experience. We take your privacy concerns seriously. Our Privacy Policy is designed to inform you about how we may collect, use, share, and store information about you.

Information We Collect
We collect various information about you when you use our services, including:

  • information you provide to us;
  • information about how you use our websites, mobile applications, and other online services;
  • information about the computers and devices you use to access our services;
  • information about your online activities and your interests;
  • information about how you respond to our communications;
  • information about the location of your mobile device based on the location of nearby WiFi networks or, subject to your consent, information accessed via the location functionality of your device; and
  • information about you from publicly or commercially available sources.

We use information to provide you with products and services, respond to your requests, manage contests, and to personalize the content on our services, for research purposes, to communicate with you about your account; learn about you; send you or provide you with ads, offers, or other content based on your interests; and resolve disputes; and to improve, maintain, and troubleshoot our services.

Sharing Information
We share information:

  • with third parties, including service providers that process information on our behalf, to facilitate transactions and provide you with services;
  • with our affiliates;
  • to facilitate interest-based advertising; and
  • in association with a transfer of a business or related assets; when there is a legal obligation to disclose your information; or to protect our legal rights, the public, or others.

Third-Party Links & Content
Our services and communications may contain links to or content from websites or other online services provided by third parties. We expect our partners and third-party providers to respect your privacy, but you acknowledge and agree that we are not responsible for the collection and use of your information by websites and other services that are not under our control. The privacy practices of third parties are governed by their privacy policies, and we encourage you to review the privacy policies of all websites and online services that you use, view, or visit.

Use of Cookies & Other Technology
We may use cookies, web beacons (also known as pixels), and other technologies to collect information when you use our services. A cookie is a text-only string of information that a website stores on your computer or device in the cookie file associated with the browser that you use to access the website. Most major websites use cookies. Cookies alone generally cannot be used to identify you. But if you choose the “Remember Me” feature or similar features, a cookie will store information that helps remember you, such as your username.

Cookies help us recognize you when you return to our websites and hold information from one visit to the next for your ease of use. Cookies also help us better understand how people use our services through click-stream analysis. Further information on our use of cookies, including how to disable them or register your preferences regarding their use is contained in the Interest Based Advertising section of this Privacy Policy.

Third-party content providers, advertisers, and advertising companies may place cookies on your computer or mobile device. Those cookies are controlled by the third parties and are not governed by this Privacy Policy.

We and some of our advertisers work with ad networks and ad delivery platforms that place retargeting pixels on users’ computers to gather information about users’ online activities, such as browsing histories and demographic information. This information can be aggregated into audience segments, which help deliver relevant advertising to users visiting our websites and third-party websites that use the same pixels.

Internet-Based Advertising
To help ensure that you receive ads that are relevant to your interests on our services, our advertisers’ services, and elsewhere on the Internet, we and third-parties (including service providers, advertisers, and advertising companies) may collect information about your online activities over time and across different websites and apps. We and third parties may use that information to help understand audience segments. Advertisers may use the segments to determine the audience groups to which they wish to deliver particular ads. Through this process, we do not use information that directly identifies you.

If you do not wish to allow cookies to be placed on your computer or device, you can configure your web browser (Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari, etc.) to delete and/or control the use of cookies. Please note that the interest-based advertising opt outs provided in the links above rely on the use of cookies. If you disable or delete cookies, you may remove your opt-out preferences. Deleting and/or controlling the use of cookies AND visiting the opt-out links above to register your preferences will help to ensure that you do not receive interest-based advertising. Again, this does not mean that you will not receive ads, it simply means that you will not receive ads that are tailored to your web preferences and usage patterns.

Except as otherwise disclosed in this Privacy Policy, we do not respond to browser Do Not Track signals or other mechanisms that provide a method to opt out of the collection of information across the networks of websites and online services in which we participate; if we do so in the future, we will describe how we do so here.
