What personal data we collect and why we collect it
Personal data is information that can be used to identify you such as your name and email address. We collect personal data in two ways:
- Newsletter: Email address.
- Contact Form: Your name and email address.
In both cases, we will ask for your consent first. You can also opt out from our newsletter using the “unsubscribe” link in the footer of each newsletter, or by clicking the link below.
MagicalQuote.com collects personal information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with us. Visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, but that may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Like many other Web sites, MagicalQuote.com makes use of log files. The information inside the log files includes internet protocol ( IP ) addresses, type of browser, Internet Service Provider ( ISP ), date/time stamp, referring/exit pages, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site, track user’s movement around the site, and gather demographic information. IP addresses and similar information are not linked to any information that is personally identifiable.
When you use our Site, you do so anonymously.
Who we share your data with
We do not sell, trade, or rent your personal information to others. MagicalQuote.com may disclose your personal information if required to do so by law or regulation, or in response to valid requests by public authorities.
We use third-party service providers to help us operate our business, such as sending out newsletters or communicating with visitors.

How we protect your data
