California Online Privacy Protection Act
CalOPPA is the first state law in the nation to require commercial websites and online services to post a privacy policy. The law’s reach stretches well beyond California to require any person or company in the United States (and conceivably the world) that operates websites collecting Personally Identifiable Information from California consumers to post a conspicuous privacy policy on its website stating exactly the information being collected and those individuals or companies with whom it is being shared. We are compliant with this law.
According to CalOPPA, we agree to the following:

COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act)
When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under the age of 13 years old, the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, United States’ consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children’s privacy and safety online.
We do not specifically market to children under the age of 13 years old although we may include stories or articles about children enjoying motorcycles provided they are submitted by a parent or legal guardian.

MISCELLANEA

Here is some information about Motorcycle Times, The Premier Mid-Atlantic Motorcycle Magazine.
Motorcycle Times was first published in print in 1989 and is now free online. The magazine is supported by paid advertisements.
If you have any questions or just want to let us know how we are doing CONTACT US .

CONTENT

We publish family friendly motorcycle related news, events, stories, pictures, reviews and more.

OUR SERVICE AREA

Originally we were “The Mid-Atlantic Motorcycle Magazine”. We served only Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, Washington D.C. and the DelMarVa resort areas, because they were our main focus.
Now, publishing the magazine online extends our reach far beyond these areas. We even have some readers in other countries.
Motorcycle Times now reaches anyone, anywhere the internet is available.

OUR SCHEDULE

The magazine is now monthly; it was bi-monthly when we were printing. Our publishing schedule begins January 1st. We publish twelve issues per year. Each issue is published online on or about the 1st of each month.
We will issue updates as needed between issues if there is timely and important information to share. 

CIRCULATION

Readership varies with the trends of the internet. Motorcycle Times is free to read on the website and top social media outlets. This extends our readership and maximizes your advertising dollars by reaching out to everyone, everywhere the internet is available. 

OUR CONTRIBUTORS

During our 31 years of publishing Motorcycle Times, some of our long time writers have moved on to other projects, some have retired.  So we’ve added a few contributors. We always look for those who fit our loose, creative framework while retaining their own style. We believe this is vitally important, since we strive to produce information that is timely, accurate, relevant, informative, unique and entertaining…but not standardized or restricting to a writer. As long as it’s about motorcycling and family friendly we are interested.      

COMMUNITY

We contribute advertisements for and directly support The Ride For Kids and The National Kidney Foundation. We offer free advertising in our website and social media for motorcycle related charity events of most kinds. 

IN CLOSING

Motorcycle Times remains committed to bringing you family friendly motorcycle related news and events and supporting our communities within the sport of motorcycling.
