Personally Identifiable Information is information that can be used to contact you or determine your specific identity. When other information is linked to this information, it also becomes Personally Identifiable Information.
When you register for the PressReader Service, we ask you for basic registration information, such as your name, address, email address, phone, fax, and other contact information.
When you subscribe to PressReader Service, we collect billing information, such as your credit card number, expiry date, and billing address.
We may ask you for voluntary personal information at other times, including but not limited to when you provide opinions, enter a contest or promotion, or report a problem with the PressReader service.
When you submit a request for more information or assistance, PressReader will keep a record of the request and the manner in which it was processed.
We may also automatically receive and record information in our server logs from your browser, including your IP address, your computer's name, the type and version of your web browser, referrer addresses, and other generally-accepted log information. We may also record page views (hit counts) and other general statistical and tracking information.
We must have your Personally Identifiable Information in order for us to adequately provide you with the PressReader service.
Note that by limiting information collection, PressReader may not be able to provide you the same functionality or features as otherwise available (if such functionality or features rely on this information).
A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier that is sent to your browser from a web site's computers and stored on your computer's hard drive. Each web site can send its own cookies to your browser if your browser's preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) most browsers only permit a web site to access the cookies that the same web site has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites.
In general, we will not disclose your Personally Identifiable Information to unaffiliated third parties without your express consent. There may be circumstances where we may need to disclose Personally Identifiable Information about a user. These are:
- Employing other companies to perform functions on our behalf, such as fulfilling orders, providing customer service, sending mail, processing credit card payments, processing currency conversions, or other functions necessary to our business.
- If publishers of the products available through the PressReader service request additional Personally Identifiable Information from us. The information practices of those publishers are covered by their own privacy policies.
- If we believe that user is harming or interfering with other PressReader users, anyone else, or violating our Subscription Agreement or the PressReader Agreement, or infringing any of PressReader legal rights.
- If we are required by law to provide any of your Personally Identifiable Information we will, if permitted by law, attempt to notify you via the e-mail address you supplied during registration within a reasonable amount of time before we respond to the request.
- In the event of a sale of all or most of the assets of the company, this information may be transferred to the purchaser.
Anonymous Information is any information other than Personally Identifiable Information, including aggregate information derived from Personally Identifiable Information. Anonymous Information will not include any Personally Identifiable Information and PressReader will not disclose any Personally Identifiable Information except as expressly stated elsewhere in this policy.
PressReader may use this information:
- To improve the PressReader website and service, to monitor traffic and general usage patterns, and for other general business purposes.
- To inform publishers as to what content is appealing to their readers, to inform advertisers of the usage habits or characteristics of the interested audience, and to advise potential investors so that they may better understand PressReader user base, etc.
You have control over your Personally Identifiable Information and can change your Registration or Subscription Information, by clicking www.PressReader.com.
If you wish to delete your Registration or Subscription Information you can e-mail PressReader@PressReader.com . Your information will then be deleted assuming (i) you are current with all payment obligations; (ii) PressReader does not believe it is reasonably necessary to keep such information for any pending legal action; and (iii) we are under no other legal obligation to retain such information. If your information is deleted, however, any unfulfilled subscriptions will be canceled without refund and you will have to re-register with PressReader in order to use the PressReader service.
We employ reasonable and current security methods to prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure correct use of information.
Your personal data will be stored within a database that is located behind a firewall for added security. The server housing the database is physically protected at a secure, third party site and is monitored by security personnel twenty-four hours a day. Only authorized personnel can access the data center and the particular server housing the database.
No data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be secure. As a result, while we try to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk.
We do not encrypt normal web sessions with the Service, however any transmission to the PressReader website or service of credit card information uses SSL encryption to help protect the data.
The PressReader service is not directed to children (persons under the age of 13), and we do not knowingly collect, either online or offline, Personally Identifiable Information from children.
