Purchasing back issues.
Subscribers to the print edition of The New Atlantis are required to submit two kinds of personal information: contact information (a name, postal address, phone number, e-mail address, and so forth) and billing information (usually a credit card number). This information is collected by a third-party service provider that maintains our subscription database (Fulco, Inc.). That company shares your information only with The New Atlantis. We use that information to send your subscription to you and to charge you for your subscription. We also use that information to send you reminders when your account is expiring. We may from time to time also use that information to contact you about The New Atlantis and its projects.
We do not sell or share this information with anyone else.
Visitors to the website.
When ordering back issues of The New Atlantis with our online order form, users will be invited to pay by credit card. Those credit card payments are processed by PayPal (a subsidiary of eBay Inc.). The New Atlantis only receives from PayPal the contact information necessary for shipping back issues. The New Atlantis does not receive the user’s billing information (such as a credit card number).
We use software to analyze the traffic that comes to this website, TheNewAtlantis.com. That software gives us information about the number of visitors to this site and about what pages they visit. It also gives us an electronic “address”—a numerical code called an IP address—that represents each computer that visits this site. (You can learn more about IP addresses from Wikipedia here.)
We do not do anything with these IP addresses, we frankly don’t have any interest in them, and we certainly do not sell or share them with anyone else.
The New Atlantis also uses e-mail lists to contact readers interested in our work. These lists of e-mail addresses are not linked in any way to other personal information (like your postal address).
Getting off our e-mail lists: You can remove your e-mail address from our lists by following the instructions at the bottom of any e-mail you receive from us. Or we can remove your address for you; just write to firstname.lastname@example.org to ask us.
We will not give or sell your e-mail address to anyone else.
Some people submit their real e-mail addresses when commenting on the blogs we host. We will only use those e-mail addresses to contact the commenters, and even then only rarely; we will not share commenters’ e-mail addresses with anyone else.
