Information Collection: Personally Identifiable Information
In the course of using the Services, we do not collect any personally identifiable information other than information that you voluntarily provide to us through your communications with us (“Personal Information”).
Should you request it, we use your Personal Information to contact you with Publisher newsletters, marketing or promotional materials and other information that may be of interest to you. If you decide at any time that you no longer wish to receive such communications from us, please follow the unsubscribe instructions provided in any of the communications.
For information regarding when third party websites are referenced through our website, please see the section below, “Links to Other Sites.”
When you use our Services (such as when you visit our Sites), our servers automatically record information that your browser sends whenever you visit a website or service connected to the Internet (“Log Data”). This Log Data may include information such as your computer’s, or other device’s Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type, the webpage you were visiting before you came to our Sites, pages of our Sites that you visit, the time spent on those pages, information you search for on our Sites, access times and dates, and other statistics.
We use this information, via Google Analytics, to monitor and analyze use of the Sites and Services for technical administration and tailoring our Services to our users’ needs.
Our Policy Toward Children
Protecting the privacy of young children is especially important. For that reason, Publisher does not knowingly collect or maintain personally identifiable information from persons under 13 years-of-age. If Publisher learns that personally-identifiable information of persons less than 13-years-of-age has been collected on or through the Services, then Publisher will take the appropriate steps to delete this information.
If you are the parent or legal guardian of a child under 13 who uses the Services and who has provided Personal Information to us, then please contact Publisher at firstname.lastname@example.org to have that child’s information deleted.
Cookies and Other Technologies
Like many websites, we use “cookies” to collect information. A cookie is a small data file that we transfer to your computer’s hard disk for record-keeping purposes. We may use “session ID cookies” to enable certain features of the Sites or Services, to better understand how you interact with the Sites and to monitor web traffic routing on the Sites and aggregate usage of the Sites and Services. You can instruct your browser, by changing its options, to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the websites you visit. If you do not accept cookies, however, you may not be able to use all portions of the Sites or all functionality of the Services.
Information Sharing and Disclosure
We will not share, sell, rent, or trade your Personal Information with other parties except as provided below.
Aggregate Information and Non-Identifying Information
We may share aggregated information that includes non-identifying information and Log Data with third parties for industry analysis, demographic profiling, and to deliver targeted advertising about other products and services. Any aggregated information shared in these contexts will not contain your Personal Information.
We allow third-party companies to serve ads and/or collect certain anonymous information when you visit the Sites. These companies may use non-personally identifiable information (e.g., click stream information, browser type, time and date, subject of advertisements clicked or scrolled over) during your visits to the Sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services likely to be of greater interest to you. These companies typically use a cookie or third party web beacon to collect this information. To learn more about this behavioral advertising practice or to opt-out of this type of advertising, you can visit http://www.networkadvertising.org/.
We employ third party companies and individuals to facilitate our Services (such as maintenance services, database management, web analytics and improvement of our Services’ features), to provide the Services on our behalf, or to assist us in analyzing how Services are used. These third parties have access to your Personal Information only to perform these tasks on our behalf and are obligated not to disclose or use it for any other purpose.
Compliance with Laws and Law Enforcement.
We may sell, transfer or otherwise share some or all of its assets, including your Personal Information, in connection with a merger, acquisition, reorganization or sale of assets or in the event of bankruptcy.
We are concerned with the security of your Personal Information and are committed to taking reasonable steps to protect it from unauthorized access and use. To that end, we put in place the appropriate physical, electronic and managerial policies and procedures designed to secure Personal Information. We also continue to implement procedures to maintain accurate, complete and current Personal Information. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is one hundred percent secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
We will make any legally required disclosures of any breach of the security, confidentiality, or integrity of your unencrypted electronically stored “personal data” (as defined in applicable state statutes on security breach notification) to you via email or conspicuous posting on the Site in the most expedient time possible and without unreasonable delay, insofar as consistent with (i) the legitimate needs of law enforcement or (ii) any measures necessary to determine the scope of the breach and restore the reasonable integrity of the data system.
Links to Other Sites
Our Services may contain links to other websites and online services. If you choose to visit a third party service or an advertiser by “clicking on” a banner ad or other type of advertisement, or click on another third party link, you will be directed to that third party’s website or online service. The fact that we link to a website, content or present a banner ad or other type of advertisement is not an endorsement, authorization or representation of our affiliation with that third party, nor is it an endorsement of their privacy or information security policies or practices.
We do not exercise control over third party websites or services. These other websites or services may place or recognize cookies or other files on your browsers, serve content and advertisements, collect data or solicit personal information from you. Other websites and services follow different rules regarding the use or disclosure of the personal information you submit to them. We encourage you to read the privacy policies or statements of the other websites and services you use.
