We only collect information from you when you specifically and knowingly provide such information. Any information we collect is used for the purpose of providing you with a more satisfying and personalized browsing experience.

The Sarasota Phoenix does not share, sell or rent any personal information to other companies or third parties.  The Sarasota Phoenix collects and uses information in the following ways:

Newsletter Request/Subscription Fulfillments: When you request a newsletter or subscription from our site, we request your name and email address. This information allows us to process, fulfill and alert you to the status of your request. We may use this information to enhance your online experience by notifying you of special promotions, functionality changes and new services that we think you will find valuable. You may choose to remove yourself from this list at any time by unsubscribing from our email broadcasts at any time.

We collect and store information with technology that may include sending one or more cookies or anonymous identifiers to your device. A cookie is a small piece of text sent to your browser by a website you visit. It helps the website to remember information about your visit, like your preferred language and other settings. That can make your next visit easier and the site more useful to you. Cookies play an important role. Without them, using the web would be a much more frustrating experience.

We use cookies for many purposes. We use them, for example, to remember your safe search preferences, to make the ads you see more relevant to you, to count how many visitors we receive to a page, to help you sign up for our services and to protect your data.

The Sarasota Phoenix is very protective of the privacy of its readers. However, if at any time we are required by law or by a legal process to release customer information, we must cooperate fully.

The Sarasota Phoenix reserves the right to change, alter or revise any part of our policies at any time with or without prior notice.
