Privacy Policy

Last Updated: 05/07/2018. Please refer to this page for updates.

Knowable Magazine is firmly committed to protecting the privacy of personal information provided by those visiting and interacting with our organization online.

Our Privacy Policy is organized around the following principles:

  • Transparency: We want to be accessible in both access and language.
  • Choice: We provide the ability to opt out of information collection.
  • Security: We are committed to maintaining the security of information collected.

What do we mean by “personal information”?

Any information that identifies you, such as your name or email address. Any information that falls outside of this is “non-personal information.”

How do we collect information?

You give it to us directly and voluntarily (e.g. when you sign up for our newsletter, respond to a survey or submit to a sweepstakes). We also collect data by automated means, such as cookies, pixels and web beacons. Information collected this way includes your location, language, device category, referral sources, and dates of visits.

How do we use cookies?

Cookies are unique identifiers that we transfer to your device to enable our systems to recognize your device and track site usage.

We also use cookies for additional purposes, including:

  • Conducting research and diagnostics to improve Knowable Magazine’s products and services
  • Preventing fraudulent activity
  • Improving security

We use Google Analytics and Facebook Pixel for site metrics. You can control how that information is collected via Google Privacy Controls and Facebook Privacy Controls

What do we do with it?

Contact information is used to connect readers with Knowable Magazine content and updates through our weekly newsletter and other avenues. We also use data (such as Google Analytics and survey responses) to understand how readers interact with our content and improve usability and value of the site.

How can I control my data?

Head to the Annual Reviews preference center to control your email preferences. Please refer to the following for the most updated information about third-party tools that we use (listed above)

Who can access the information we collect?

Knowable Magazine does not sell personal information, including our email list. Information may be shared with our parent organization, Annual Reviews (website, privacy policy), or contracted vendors through the course of regular business on our behalf.

We may share aggregated data, such as aggregated demographic information, when discussing our readership with third parties.

Are there rules for minors?

While we want our content to be read and enjoyed by a very wide audience, users who are under 16 years of age are asked not to submit personal data to Knowable Magazine. We do not knowingly collect identifiable information for anyone under 16 years old.

What about other sites?

Knowable Magazine regularly links to other websites. These may be operated by sites unaffiliated with Knowable Magazine and may have their own privacy policies. Please follow these links at your own risk – we are not responsible for the privacy practices of these websites.

How do we protect this information?

We maintain administrative, technical and physical safeguards designed to protect the personal information you provide against accidental, unlawful or unauthorized destruction, loss, alteration, access, disclosure or use.

What if I have additional questions?
