Effective Date: This policy was updated and became immediately effective on May 21, 2018
We primarily use the information we collect when you interact with the Sites in connection with your relationship with Vinspire Publishing, your use of the Sites, and for sending you information from us or on behalf of third parties. We do not share your Personal Information (information that identifies you as a specific individual, such as your full name, email address or street address) with third parties for their marketing purposes without your consent; however, we may share your Personal Information under certain limited circumstances as identified below. We may also share information that has been redacted so that it no longer identifies a specific individual with third parties.
The Sites may contain content served by third parties, including videos and advertisements, and we work with third party service providers to serve Vinspire Publishing advertisements elsewhere online. In connection with serving content and providing analytics and advertising services, third parties may collect certain information about your visits to this or other web sites and we may receive information regarding the use of the Sites and the effectiveness of our advertisements. The advertising networks, advertisers, ad agencies, analytics service providers and other vendors may set and access their own tracking devices (including cookies and web beacons) and they may otherwise collect or have access to information about you (such as your general interest in certain book genres).
What Personal Information is collected?
Vinspire collects Personal Information voluntarily provided by you, and/or information about you collected through cookies (see below) and browser data via our websites. Personal Information may include name, mailing address, email address, telephone number, gender, date of birth, age, purchase history, blog communications, comments about our products or services, a record of promotions offered to you, and your activities and your reading preferences, such as favorite authors and themes.
Why Do We Collect Personal Information?
Personal Information is collected and used for the specific business purpose for which it was collected, including but not limited to:
• To determine eligibility for our products and services;
• To provide requested products or services
• To gain an understanding of interests so that we can develop better products and services;
• To properly investigate and respond to any concerns about our products or services;
• To maintain and manage our Unsubscribe list associated with our newsletter
• For promotional and advertising purposes, if and where permitted by law and as authorized by the individual submitting the personal information.
To Whom May We Disclose Personal Information and Why
To Third Parties in the Event of Legal Reasons:
We may be required to disclose Personal Information to the government or other legal or regulatory authorities if so ordered by a court of law or for other legal reasons.
To a Third Party in the Event Vinspire Is for Sale or Is Sold:
Should Vinspire ever be made available for sale or sold, prospective buyers will need access to its customer lists and various databases as part of the process prior to purchase. In this event, we would only provide such access under terms of a strict confidentiality agreement. In the event Vinspire is sold, your Personal Information may be transferred to the purchasing company so you can continue to receive the books and services you purchased and to enable the continued maintenance of your Personal Information as set out in this policy.
How Long Do We Retain Your Personal Information?
We keep your information only for a period reasonably necessary to meet the purposes for which it was collected, or based on any legal requirements, including statutory retention periods. Then we will delete or make anonymous any Personal Information that is no longer required for a specific purpose or legal requirement.
What Security Measures Do We Take To Safeguard Personal Information?
Vinspire has implemented physical, electronic, and administrative measures to protect your information from error, loss or unauthorized access; including but not limited to industry-standard efforts, such as passwords, firewalls, and Secure Socket Layers. In addition, our employees and any third parties are contractually bound to protect the confidentiality of your information and access is restricted to those with a need to know the information to carry out the identified purpose. That said, no security measure is 100% effective as evidenced by the recent data breaches, but we do make every effort to ensure that your information is secure.
