Effective Date: August 2019
Irrespective of which country you live in, you authorize us to transfer, store, and use your information in the United States, and any other country where we operate. In some of these countries, the privacy and data protection laws and rules regarding when government authorities may access data may vary from those in the country where you live. If you do not agree to the transfer, storage and use of your information in the United States, and any other country where we operate, please do not use the Sites or Services.
How does Batch For Books gather my information?
We gather information in two ways. One way is when you send us your information directly, such as by making an email inquiry or submitting a registration form to receive our newsletters. The other way is by using technology to collect information regarding your use of the Site.
The information we collect automatically by using technology is statistical data and does not include personal information, but we may maintain it or associate it with personal information we collect in other ways or receive from third parties. It helps us to improve our Site and to deliver a better and more personalized service, including by enabling us to:
- estimate our audience size and usage patterns;
- store information about your preferences, allowing us to customize our Site according to your individual interests;
- speed up or optimize your searches; and
- recognize you when you return to our Site.
We may contract with third parties to help us manage, monitor and optimize the Site and measure the effectiveness of our communications and use of the Site.
What information does Batch For Books collect?
We collect both personally identifiable information ("PII") and non-personally identifiable information ("Non-PII"). PII refers to information that identifies you directly, such as your name, business affiliation, postal address, telephone number, and e-mail address. We collect PII only when you voluntarily provide it to us. Non-PII refers to information that does not identify you personally, which we use to track your Internet use. For instance, we may collect information about your computer's IP address, what type of web browser you use, and what pages of the Site you visit to understand how the Site is being used. See the "What are "cookies" and how does Batch For Books use them?" section below for more information.
What are "cookies" and how does Batch For Books use them?
How does Batch For Books use and disclose my information?
We do not disclose any of the information we receive from you to any third parties, other than our service partners who provide information security, and marketing and promotional services to us, or if we were to sell any or all of our business and/or our assets, or where we are legally or contractually required to disclose your information. Otherwise, we will use your information only for our own internal purposes and, where appropriate, to contact you directly. Access to your information is restricted to those of our employees who need to know your information in order to provide services to you.
By submitting a telephone number to Batch For Books, you agree that a representative of Batch For Books can contact you at the number you provide, potentially using automated technology (including texts/SMS messaging) or a pre-recorded message. Your consent is not an obligation to receive any of our services.
How does Batch For Books safeguard my information?
We have implemented appropriate safeguards to protect your information from improper access, use and disclosure. First, we use a secure operating environment to seamlessly protect any information you transmit to us. Once received, we then limit access of your information to only those employees with a legitimate business need. Finally, we take care to dispose of your information properly so that third parties will not be able to access it. This includes destroying, erasing, or making unreadable the information prior to disposal. While we are committed to protecting your privacy, please be aware that no transaction over the Internet can be completely secure, and transmission of such data is therefore entirely at your own risk. We are not responsible for the unauthorized acts of others and we assume no liability for any disclosure of information due to errors in transmission, unauthorized third-party access (such as through hacking) or other acts of third parties or acts or omissions beyond our reasonable control.
We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.
To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements. For example, by law we have to keep basic information about our customers (including contact, identity, financial and transaction Data) for six years after they cease being customers for tax purposes.
In some circumstances we may anonymise your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.
