We hope you’ll come to trust us. We have your address, phone number, e-mail address, and possibly the kind of boat you sail in our database. We could make money selling this information to other publishers and third parties, but we won’t do it because we don’t like it when others do it to us. Think of us as your “kinder, gentler publishers.” We think of you as friends. We hope it shows.

We will use your e-mail only under the following circumstances:

  • To advise you when it is time to renew (this is generally about when we send out your last issue, allowing you about two months to renew. Then possibly a second e-mail about two months later if we haven’t heard from you).
  • To advise you of the posting of the current newsletter (available only as a link to a web address).
  • To advise you of timely, important information (we call this our Press Gang News and promise to use it sparingly).
  • If there is a problem with your subscription, renewal, delivery of your magazines/products, or data base information that makes contact necessary.
  • You may opt out of any of these contacts by emailing Mark Busta and advising which contacts you do not feel are appropriate use of your e-mail address.

Our website uses banner advertising serving software which will place a temporary Internet file (cookie) on your computer’s hard drive. This is done in order to properly report advertising impressions to companies who advertise with us on our website. Cookies are also used to display particular “pop-up” windows and to set identifiers as to which of the pages on our website are viewed. Please note: No personal information (i.e., e-mail addresses, credit card numbers, etc.) is ever stored with cookies.

We will use your postal address only for the purposes of renewal notification, a rare reader’s survey, or as an emergency contact if there is a problem with your subscription, renewal, or magazine/product delivery.

We will use your phone number only if we need to reach you about a pressing problem with your subscription, renewal, or magazine/product delivery. We will not use it to contact you unnecessarily or for telemarketing of any kind.
