Information that Honoring Women Worldwide collects
Honoring Women Worldwide gathers two basic types of information:
- Information provided to Honoring Women Worldwide
- Information gathered by Honoring Women Worldwide
When you visit the Honoring Women Worldwide website and interact with the services and tools that reside there, Honoring Women Worldwide and third parties with whom Honoring Women Worldwide has contracted to provide services to Honoring Women Worldwide may collect information on your actions. This type of information is generally collected from two sources. One is from the server log files and the other is from cookies.
How information is collected and disseminated
The information collected by Honoring Women Worldwide is used to create aggregate portraits of the Honoring Women Worldwide audience, portraits which present anonymous statistical demographic information but no personally identifiable information. This aggregated information is used, among other things, to determine trends and needs, and also to supply market research to potential partners to help them understand whom the Honoring Women Worldwide audience is. For example, we may create a report that tells clients that 60 percent of our members are females in a certain age range, so that they can determine which of their products or services are most appropriate for our members.
Several areas of the Honoring Women Worldwide site are reserved for Honoring Women Worldwide members who have registered with us.
The membership registration form currently requires you to choose a member name and password and provide Honoring Women Worldwide with your first and last names, email address, mailing address, zip code, country, gender, age and birth date. The current forms and future forms may also include optional information that you may choose to provide to us like areas of interest, marital status, household income, education and employment status.
The personally identifiable information you provide during membership registration will not be given to third parties without your consent.

Surverys and polls
From time to time, Honoring Women Worldwide may implement surveys that ask for opinions on various issues and very often these surveys and polls are sponsored by or associated with Honoring Women Worldwide clients or partners. Occasionally, we may request demographic information (like zip code, age or gender). The information obtained through surveys and polls is complied and used internally or shared with advertisers and partners only in the aggregate form. In the event personally identifiable information is requested as part of surveys or polls about any Honoring Women Worldwide member or subscriber, such personally identifiable information is never provided to third parties without your consent. In these instances you may expressly choose to receive information from a sponsor, in which case your information is provided to that sponsor only. Some survey answers may be added to your member portrait (so that we can better provide you with content, ads and offers that are most appropriate for you).
Contests and sweepstakes
In the course of doing business, we may operate sweepstakes, contests and giveaways through Honoring Women Worldwide. We typically ask you for your email address (to notify you if you’ve won, or not). We also ask for first and last names and sometimes physical addresses in order to verify the entrant’s identity. In some situations, we need additional information as part of the entry process, such as a prize selection choice. This information is shared with a third party:
- When you choose to receive information from a third party sweepstakes sponsor;
- When a sweepstakes is hosted by Honoring Women Worldwide but administered by a sponsor, again, we will advise you of this in the sweepstakes rules; or
- Most sweepstakes and contests will also ask you to consent to the release of information contained within the entry form for tax purposes if you become a winner.
- You should carefully review the rules of each sweepstakes, contest and giveaway which you enter as they may contain additional important information about Honoring Women Worldwide or a sponsor’s use of your personally identifiable information.
“Mail this to a friend”
Honoring Women Worldwide offers the ability to forward web site content to another person via email. If you use these services, we will use the recipient’s email address in order to send the article and we will also ask for your email address. We do not use the recipient’s email address for any other purpose unless such recipient gives us permission to do so.
Links to partners sites
In order to participate in the partner and/or advertiser supplied services and tools you may be required to provide personally identifiable information to the advertisers and partners whose tools and services you have chosen to interact with. Each advertiser and partner will request different information from you.
If you have additional questions about how one of our advertisers, partners or sponsors use information about you, we urge you to contact them directly.
