Linux Journal, recognizes the importance of protecting the privacy of information provided by visitors to our web sites. We have created the following data collection policies to demonstrate our commitment to the issue of privacy.
Web Site User Information Collected by Linux Journal
Magazine Subscriber Information Collected by Linux Journal
In order for you to subscribe to Linux Journal, access your subscriber data on-line, or utilize our customization features, you will need to provide us with certain personally identifiable information. Some examples of this type of information include your name, address, phone number, billing address, and e-mail address. You will only be asked to provide personal information that is essential to complete or participate in the activity that you have selected.
Use of Information
Linux Journal takes every precaution to protect users' information from unauthorized use. When users submit sensitive information via our web sites, the information is considered confidential both on-line and off-line. We do not allow public access to the portion of the server that contains user information.
E-mail addresses provided to us will only be used to send relevant and important Linux Journal correspondence, such as notifying magazine subscribers a subscription has expired, or alternatively, to send a user their opted-in e-mail newsletter. Linux Journal strictly enforces e-mail privacy and therefore, e-mail addresses are never sold or provided to third parties. Additionally, upon request, Linux Journal will remove users (and their information) from our database or permit them to "opt-out" of any further e-mail newsletters that they had previously signed up for.
Our web server automatically recognizes and collects the domain name and IP address of visitors to our web sites. In addition, we collect aggregate tracking information derived mainly from tallying page views throughout our sites, and information volunteered by the visitor, such as survey information and/or site registrations. The information we collect is used to improve the content of our web pages, customize the content and/or layout for each individual visitor, and for us to contact visitors about our products and services as explained below.
If a visitor has enabled cookies in their browser, we will send a cookie file that will only store a unique, random session ID that is maintained throughout the session to track the pages visited. This allows us to provide our site visitors with certain conveniences, such as delivering unique content and helping with lost passwords.
Postal addresses collected on-line may be used for periodic mailings from us with information on new products and services or upcoming events, and from other reputable companies. We allow registered users of our publications and services to "opt out" of receiving postal mail from third companies. If you do not wish to be contacted by third-party companies, you may check the button on the subscribe form or user registration form to indicate your preference. You may also provide your name and postal address to our Customer Service manager, and they will be sure your name is removed from the list we share with other organizations. When contacting us, please include the titles of publications to which you subscribe.
Linux Journal is not responsible for the content or the privacy polices of websites to which it may provide links or the websites of its advertisers.

Until recently, IBM’s Power Platform was looked upon as being the system that hosted IBM’s flavor of UNIX and proprietary operating system called IBM i. These servers often are found in medium-size businesses running ERP, CRM and financials for on-premise customers. By enabling the Power platform to run the Linux OS, IBM now has positioned Power to be the platform of choice for those already running Linux that are facing scalability issues, especially customers looking at analytics, big data or cloud computing.
￼Running Linux on IBM’s Power hardware offers some obvious benefits, including improved processing speed and memory bandwidth, inherent security, and simpler deployment and management. But if you look beyond the impressive architecture, you’ll also find an open ecosystem that has given rise to a strong, innovative community, as well as an inventory of system and network management applications that really help leverage the benefits offered by running Linux on Power.Get the Guide
