We use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit our website.

These companies may use information (not including your name, address, email address, or telephone number) about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. We do not monitor or control these adverts and once an ad is clicked it is beyond out control. Adverts in the main are provided by Google, a highly respected company.

By accessing and continuing to use the website, you accept the terms of this privacy policy. If you do not agree with any of our privacy policy then you should not use the site. ATV News itself does not offer online services that will ask for any personal details from you. We also do not use 'cookies' - a small amount of data sent from some website servers which is stored on your hard drive - to gain any information about you.

The only data ATV Network will hold is via email. And usually, unless otherwise stated in our communication, email addresses or information provded in them will not be kept for more than 48 days. Only mailing lists, which ATV may operate, will keep email addresses stored. These can be removed by the user at any given time.

If you write / telephone ATV News, once a reply is given, unless again otherwise stated in the correspondence, all data will be erased once your enquiry has reached a conclusion unless it is otherwise agreed with you that you wish to have future communication from ATV.

Remit: ATV News (previously known as NewsZone / SoapZone between 2001-2008) has always defied conforming to the hype that is often issued about programmes. It enjoyed television when spoilers were unheard of, and doesn't pander to any broadcaster or personality. ATV News is about bringing news as it is - and also sometimes to its own dis-advantage reporting and exposing 'negatives' in the media industry. We also give honest reviews, again without any involvment from broadcasters.

Legal Owners: newszone.org.uk, soapzone.co.uk and atvnewsnetwork.co.uk are owned and managed by the ATV News Network for the ATV Network Limited company.

Law: ATV operates in the UK - and works to British legal requirements.

Complains and contacts: You can email the editor via a feedback form in the 'contact us' section. You can also speak to our Customer Service staff by emailing us, if you wish to compliment or complain. If you feel you want to take a complaint higher than NewsZone's team you can contact the parent company at www.atvnetworklimited.co.uk

First With The News: This tag that features on some pages generally means online firsts, certainly means first over other independent web news information sites.
