Privacy Policy

Thank you for visiting Southern California Marketing Services’ Privacy Policy.

The internet is a powerful tool—it provides valuable information and services. However it can also be used to provide information about you to the rest of the world that you may not wish to be known. Southern California Marketing Services wants you to know exactly how we use the information you provide.


First and foremost we respect and protect the privacy of our users. Southern California Marketing Services will never willfully disclose individually identifiable information about its customers to any third party without first receiving your written permission. Southern California Marketing Services shares general statistical and demographic information about our users with advertisers, business partners, sponsors, and other third parties. However, we talk about our users in aggregate, not as individuals.

There are cases where Southern California Marketing Services collects personal information such as your name or address. We do this when you register for contests/promotions or services that require registration or subscription. We use this information for internal use only. We do not sell, distribute, or share, this type of information. When we intend to use your personal information we tell you directly. This way you can decide whether you want to give us the information or not. For example, we may want to post the names of contest winners on our site or send you materials via e-mail or regular mail at your request. In case you change your mind or your personal information changes (such as your marital status), we will endeavor to provide a way to correct, update, or remove the personal data you give us.


We use “cookies” at in a few areas of the site. These cookies are used to identify you uniquely, but not personally. For instance, when you enter an area of the site that uses cookies, we might log you in and create a temporary “cookie” id for your session such as 123. As you move through the site we keep track of 123’s preferences during the session so that you don’t have to continue logging in on every protected page you browse. When you close your browser we remove this data from our server and we do not store it. We don’t use the cookie to track you as “Sally Smith;” we use it to uniquely identify your session. Ninety percent of our content does not use the cookie concept, but when it does it is mandatory that the cookie be accepted. We realize that this might not be a popular position, but we are being up front with you about how we use the cookie; there is nothing up our sleeves and we don’t use it to collect personal information.


There are links to other sites from Southern California Marketing Services pages that take you outside our site. When you click on a link to another site, our policies end and the new site’s policies begin. We can only control our policies while you are visiting pages within our site. Be aware that not everyone is upfront about privacy and the collection of information from its users. Southern California Marketing Services’ privacy policy does not extend to anything that is inherent in the operation of the Internet, and therefore beyond our control, and is not to be applied in any manner contrary to applicable law or governmental regulation. Southern California Marketing Services reserves the right to make changes to this policy at its discretion. Please check this page periodically for changes.

We have taken reasonable steps to assign passwords, encrypt sensitive data and protect our databases, servers and other information storage locations from unauthorized access. Our Partners employees are subject to written policies regarding the use and disclosure of your Non-Public Personal Information.

Southern California Marketing Services will comply with the appropriate provisions of the DMCA in the event a counter notification is received by its Designated Agent.
