Privacy Policy

MIT Sloan Management Review is committed to preserving your privacy and protecting your information. We'd like this to be a privacy policy you can actually read, so we're keeping it short. If you have any questions, please write us at

What We Collect and How We Use It

We use the contact information that you provide (name, address, email, telephone number, etc.) to process your order and maintain our transaction records.

We use cookies to permit access to protected content or your shopping cart. We also use them to make sure that you are "logged in" the next time you visit the site.

We want to make the site better, so we track usage patterns. We track for information such as number of people who visit particular web pages and how long people spend on our website. We only track this information in the aggregate and we never match usage data to any personally identifiable information. We do not knowingly collect information from children under the age of 13.

We don't share your email address with any outside parties unless you opt in for such correspondence, or we notify your about sharing on our registration forms. We may possibly, from time to time, share your name and postal address with third party customers to provide you with information we feel may be of interest to you. If you do not wish to receive these mailings, please contact us at and we'll get you off any mailing lists. (To make it easier for us to help you, please indicate in your note whether or not you are a subscriber to the print magazine.)

We use an outside service bureau to manage our email alerts. Each email you receive via this service contains an easy, automated way for you to stop receiving email from us.

If you have received unwanted, unsolicited email sent by us or purporting to be sent by us, please forward a copy of that email with your comments to

Data Security

We are committed to providing you with a safe online experience. The software we use for processing credit card payments employs secure encryption technology (SSL) to reduce the possibility of theft, manipulation, and other alteration of any information that you provide to us. We never store your credit card information longer than necessary to process your payment.

Google AdWords

This website uses the Google AdWords remarketing service to advertise on third party websites (including Google) to previous visitors to our site. It could mean that we advertise to previous visitors who haven’t completed a task on our site, for example using the contact form to make an inquiry. This could be in the form of an advertisement on the Google search results page, or a site in the Google Display Network. Third-party vendors, including Google, use cookies to serve ads based on someone’s past visits to the MIT SMR website. Of course, any data collected will be used in accordance with our own privacy policy and Google’s privacy policy.

You can set preferences for how Google advertises to you using the Google Ad Preferences page, and if you want to you can opt out of interest-based advertising entirely by cookie settings or using a browser plugin. Learn more.
