Third-party Advertisers, Links to Other Sites
You Alabama allows other companies, called third-party ad servers or ad networks, to serve advertisements within the You Alabama Sites. These third-party ad servers or ad networks use technology to send, directly to your browser, the advertisements and links that appear on the You Alabama Sites. They automatically receive your IP address when this happens. They may also use other technologies (such as cookies, JavaScript, or Web Beacons) to measure the effectiveness of their advertisements and to personalize the advertising content you see.

You Alabama does not provide any personally identifiable information to these third-party ad servers or ad networks without your consent or except as part of a specific program or feature for which you will have the ability to opt-in or opt-out. However, please note that if an advertiser asks You Alabama to show an advertisement to a certain audience (for example, men ages 18-34) or audience segment (for example, men ages 18-24 who have viewed certain channels of content) and you respond to that advertisement, the advertiser or ad-server may conclude that you fit the description of the audience they are trying to reach. The advertiser may also use information regarding your use of the You Alabama Sites, such as the number of times you viewed an ad (but not any personally identifiable information), to determine which ads to deliver to you.

You should consult the respective privacy policies of these third-party ad servers or ad networks (see links below) for more information on their practices and for instructions on how to opt-out of certain practices. You Alabama's privacy policy does not apply to, and we cannot control the activities of, such other advertisers or web sites.

Currently, You Alabama has relationships with the following third-party ad servers or ad networks:
• 24/7 Real Media, Inc. http://www.247realmedia.com/privacy.html
• Adbrite, Inc. http://www.adbrite.com/mb/privacy.php

Please note that this list may be updated at anytime by You Alabama.

Our Commitment To Data Security
You Alabama uses commercially reasonable physical, managerial, and technical safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of your personal information. We cannot, however, ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to You Alabama and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission of information, You Alabama makes commercially reasonable efforts to ensure the security of our systems. However, please note that this is not a guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards.

If You Alabama learns of a security systems breach, then we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. You Alabama may post a notice on the You Alabama Sites if a security breach occurs. Depending on where you live, you may have a legal right to receive notice of a security breach in writing. To receive a free written notice of a security breach (or to withdraw your consent from receiving electronic notice) you should notify us using this contact form.

Our Commitment To Childrens' Privacy
Protecting the privacy of young children is especially important. For that reason, You Alabama does not knowingly collect or maintain personally identifiable information or non-personally-identifiable information on the You Alabama Sites from persons under 13 years of age, and no part of our website is directed to persons under 13. If you are under 13 years of age, then please do not use or access the You Alabama Sites at any time or in any manner.
