Terms & Policy

I. Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy governs the collection and use of information 
        provided by you to Monkiey.com through your use of the websites we 
        own and operate, including monkiey.com. This Privacy Policy does not 
        apply to any information you provide to us in other ways, such as by 
        mail, telephone, or at a live event or physical business location.


By using our websites, you agree that your uses are governed by this 
        Policy and all other Terms and Conditions of Use concerning these sites. 
        If you do not agree to be bound, please refrain from using our sites. If 
        you have questions regarding our Privacy Policy and data collected, you 
        should direct them to

  • Monkiey.com
  • Contactus@monkiey.com

Types of Information We Collect:

        In general, we collect two categories of information: (1) information 
        that personally identifies you (for example, your name and address) that 
        you voluntarily supply when you register for an on-line discussion or 
        other site use, or when you subscribe, order, complete a survey, or 
        initiate some other transaction, and (2) non-personally identifying 
        information, which includes information about usage patterns and 
        preferences as users navigate around our sites or use our information 
        services. In some cases, an agent, affiliate, or business partner of 
        monkiey.com collects the information. Third party providers featured 
        on our sites, such as vendors of products and services offered through 
        our sites, may be gathering the same kinds of information.

        ARE FOUND BELOW       

Registration Information:

        To use some of the features and services on our sites, you will need to 
        register for them and provide certain information as part of the 
        registration process. Third party advertisers on our site may offer you 
        opportunities to receive information, participate in a survey, or 
        receive other goods or communications from them. We may also ask for 
        information from those who buy products or services or conduct other 
        transactions on our sites. (For example, you may be asked for your name, 
        email address, age, zip code or credit card number for certain kinds of 
        transactions, and you may be asked about your interests in various 
        topics, such as sports or leisure activities, or topics of interest to 
        people in certain professions.) Information you provide will help us 
        offer you more personalized features, make our sites more useful to you, 
        and process e-commerce transactions. Supplying such information is 
        entirely voluntary on your part. If you do not wish to supply the 
        information requested either by us or an advertiser, you are free to 
        decline to do so, but please understand we or the advertiser may then be 
        unable to provide you with the services or opportunities you want. When 
        you register, you are agreeing that we (or the advertiser with which you 
        register) may use your information to contact you for customer service, 
        to inform you of changes or additions to our sites or services offered, 
        and to send you any administrative notices or other information relevant 
        to your use of our sites.

Email Alerts and Newsletters:

        We may offer you opportunities to subscribe to email alerts and 
        newsletters concerning topics we believe might interest you. If you have 
        opted to receive a particular alert or newsletter, you can always 
        unsubscribe later. See “Opting Out” below.

Mobile Messaging Services:

        We will use information collected from your interaction with our Mobile 
        Messaging Services for the purposes of delivering, developing and 
        improving those services. We will not sell, rent, or provide that 
        information to third parties, except to the extent required by law, 
        without your consent. The practices of your wireless carrier and other 
        service providers concerning information derived from SMS messaging are 
        governed by their own privacy policies, which we do not control.

Contests and Other Promotions:

        From time to time, we or our advertisers may offer contests, 
        sweepstakes, giveaways, or other promotions on our sites. If you enter 
        one of these, you will be asked to provide information about yourself 
        such as your name, address, telephone number and email address so that 
        we or our advertisers can contact you if you win. We may share this 
        information with our corporate affiliates and any co-sponsors of the 
        contest, sweepstakes, give-away, or other promotion. (Co-sponsors will 
        be identified in the official rules applicable to the promotion.) If you 
        do not want us to collect the information requested, to use it to 
        contact you, or to share it, please do not enter any contest, 
        sweepstakes, give-away or promotion.

On-line Chats, Photos, Videos, 
        Comments and Other User Generated Data:

        If you participate in chat, post a comment on a news story, a blog, or 
        in one of our other forums or guest books, your comments will be public 
        because those comments will be published to the Web. If you sign your 
        comments or include any personal information in them, that information 
        will become public. Protect your own privacy by not posting personal 
        information, such as your phone number, in a chat or comment. Of course, 
        any photo, video or other visual or audio-recorded matter you upload, 
        post, or otherwise submit to any of our sites that accept such 
        submissions will also become public when posted to the Web. We do not 
        edit user-generated content, nor do we remove user-posted material 
        unless we, in our sole discretion, deem it unsuitable for continued 


        We make various kinds of shopping opportunities available through our 
        web sites. When you make a purchase through one of our sites, either we 
        or a third-party order fulfillment service will ask you for contact 
        details and billing information. You may also be asked for unique 
        identifiers such as your date of birth for identity confirmation 
        purposes. We will use this information to process your transaction and 
        to contact you regarding your purchase. Our third party fulfillment 
        services will have access to this information as well to facilitate the 
        transaction. We will not sell or rent your personal billing information 
        to anyone, but if you consent (by checking a box or similar method) we 
        may make your basic contact information available to third parties so 
        that they, or we, can contact you directly concerning other products or 
        services that may be of interest.

Links to Other Third Party Websites:

        We cannot control the privacy policies of sites we may link to in our 
        editorial coverage or advertising sections. Therefore, if you provide 
        personal information, including credit card information, to linked 
        third-party sites, the information is stored on their servers and is 
        governed by their privacy policies. We ask sites with which we have a 
        business relationship to prominently show a link to their privacy 
        policies. This allows you to determine how your personal information 
        might be used by them. Please review these privacy policies and contact 
        the web site operator if you have questions or concerns about them.

Important Notice about Children’s 

        Children need to obtain permission from their parents before providing 
        any information about themselves to anyone via the Internet. This 
        includes us. If you are under 16, please do not provide us with any 
        personally identifying information about yourself (names, email 
        addresses, physical addresses, or telephone numbers). We will not 
        knowingly collect personally identifying information about anyone under 
        the age of 16 unless we have verified consent of the child’s parent or 
        guardian prior to collection. If we learn we have collected such 
        information without proper consent of an actual parent or guardian, we 
        will delete that information as quickly as possible.

Opting Out:

        If you register with us, or subscribe to alerts or newsletters, you will 
        have the opportunity to review, update or delete the information you 
        provided us at any time (except information we did not store in the 
        first place), and to unsubscribe to any alerts or newsletters you have 
        asked for (for example, by clicking on the “unsubscribe” link in an 
        email). If you remove registration information you have provided, you 
        probably will not be able to continue to use the service requiring that 
        registration. If you wish to opt out of receiving notices, information 
        or other contacts, or any other communication or service, please contact 
        us using the information at the location where you previously registered 
        or subscribed.

If you have submitted your information on a page 
        connected to one of our third party business affiliates or advertisers, 
        the information you submit may be maintained jointly by us and that 
        entity. If you “opt out” on our site, you may need to contact the third 
        party business affiliate or advertiser separately to request that it 
        remove your information from its database.


        Our sites use “cookies,” an element of data sent and stored on your 
        computer, a unique random number that acts as a “user ID.” The cookie 
        does not personally identify the actual user of our sites, just the 
        computer that a visitor uses to access our sites. Unless you voluntarily 
        identify yourself — as with registration for a product or service — we 
        will not know who you are, even if a cookie is assigned to your 
        computer. We use cookies in the following ways: in site administration, 
        to complete a user’s requested activity, to perform analysis, and for 
        research and development. Our advertisers and third parties providing 
        goods and services through our sites may also assign their own cookies, 
        a process we do not and cannot control. However, a cookie cannot read 
        unrelated information from your hard drive. Cookies merely help tailor 
        websites to better suit your interests. You can set most browsers not to 
        accept cookies if you want to, but you may not be able to access 
        personalized features of our sites if you do, or you may be subjected to 
        the same ad repeatedly during a single visit to one of our sites. 
        Whether to set your browser to accept cookies is completely up to you.

Other Imformation:

        Our servers automatically collect some basic information about your 
        computer configuration, including the type of browser and operating 
        system you use, the resolution of your monitor, the web site that 
        referred you, and your IP address. (Your IP address is the numerical 
        address of the computer connected to the Internet, used to transmit 
        requested data, such as the web page you want to view. It does not tell 
        us who you are. It just identifies the computer being used.) We use IP 
        addresses for systems administration purposes, to deliver our web pages 
        to you, to tailor our ads to the interests of our users, and to measure 
        traffic within our site. To improve our sites’ interest and usefulness 
        to users, we may send non-personally identifying information to ad 
        networks displaying ads on our sites.

Third-Party Ad Servers:

        We also use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you 
        visit our websites. The third-party advertising technology we employ 
        uses information derived from your visits to target advertising within 
        our sites. In addition, our advertisers may use other third-party 
        advertising technology to target advertising on our sites and on other 
        sites. In the course of advertisements being served to you, a unique 
        third-party cookie or cookies may be placed on your browser. In 
        addition, we may use Web beacons (also called action tags, pixel tags or 
        clear gifs) provided by third-party advertising companies, to help 
        manage and optimize our advertising. Web beacons enable us to recognize 
        a browser’s cookie when a browser visits one of our sites, and to learn 
        which banner ads bring users to our sites. You may “opt out” of this 


Aggregated and Statistical 

        While we do not share personally identifiable information about you with 
        our advertisers except as described above, we do aggregate information 
        you provide with data from other users and provide pools of information 
        about our users to our advertisers, in order to make them aware of the 
        audiences our sites reach. For example, we may tell advertisers how many 
        of our users are male or female or live in a certain zip code. We may 
        tell advertisers about the habits and preferences of our users using 
        this type of aggregated or statistical information about traffic to, 
        from and within our sites as well.

Other Disclosures:

        We may release information about our users to law enforcement or to 
        others when necessary to comply with laws, to enforce our Terms of 
        Service, or to protect our users, customers, or company from threats of 


        In some areas of our site, including our Classified Ads sections, you 
        might provide additional personal information such as an address, when 
        transacting business. You might enter a credit card number to purchase a 
        product or service. We have safeguards such as encryption, designed to 
        prevent access to the personal information about you that is stored on 
        our computers. However, like all Web site operators, we cannot safeguard 
        completely against illegal activities undertaken by third parties.   

Changes to our Policy:

        We may change and update our Privacy Policy from time to time to address 
        evolving business needs. Any such changes will go into effect when 
        posted. Visit this location regularly for any updates that may concern

        involving the purchase of a product such as a newspaper subscription, a

        Credit card transactions and order fulfillment are often handled by a 
        third party processing agent, bank or distribution institution. While in
