Your privacy on both offline and online is of the utmost importance to us. Because we gather certain types of information about our users, we feel you should fully understand our policy and the terms and conditions surrounding the capture and use of that information. This privacy statement discloses what information we gather and how we use it, all of which comply with common web standards.
The details collected by Escribto Academy about users are of two types:
1. Information that users provide through optional, voluntary submissions. These are voluntary submissions to receive books and translation offers of Escribto Academy, or registration details provided for the purpose of purchasing one of our Services.
2. Information collected by Escribto Academy through aggregated tracking information derived mainly by tallying page views throughout our site. This information allows us to better tailor our content to customers' needs and to help us better understand their demographics.
Our email outreach is permission based. If you received a mail from us, our records indicate that (a) you have expressly shared this address for the purpose of receiving information in the future, or (b) you have registered or otherwise have an existing relationship with us. We respect your time and attention by controlling the frequency of our mails.
We may periodically send promotional emails about new publication releases which we think you may find interesting using the email address which you have provided.
"E-mail this to a friend" Policy.
Our site users can choose to electronically forward a page to someone else by clicking "e-mail this to a friend". The user must provide their email address, as well as that of the recipient. This information is used only in the case of transmission errors and, of course, to let the recipient know who sent the email. The information is not used for any other purpose.
Escribto Academy may occasionally conduct user surveys to better target our content to our audience. We sometimes share the aggregated demographic information in these surveys with our partners. We never share any of this information about specific individuals with any third party.
We will never knowingly request personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13 without requesting parental consent.
Escribto Academy tracks user traffic patterns throughout all of our sites. However, we do not correlate this information with data about individual users. Escribto Academy does break down overall usage statistics according to a user's domain name, browser type, and MIME type by reading this information from the browser string (information contained in every user's browser).
Escribto Academy sometimes tracks and catalogs the search terms those users enter in our Search function, but this tracking is never associated with individual users. We use tracking information to determine which areas of our sites users like and don't like based on traffic to those areas. We do not track what individual users read, but rather how well each page performs overall. This helps us continue to build a better service for you.
When we send you emails, we may include a web beacon to allow us to determine the number of people who open our emails. When you click on a link in an email, we may record this individual response to allow us to customize our offerings to you. Web beacons collect only limited information, such as a cookie identifier, time and date of a page being viewed, and a description of the page on which the Web Beacon resides (the URL). Web Beacons can be refused when delivered via email. If you do not wish to receive Web Beacons via email, you will need to disable HTML images or refuse HTML (select Text only) emails via your email software.
Third-Party Service Providers
We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. This includes fulfilling book orders, delivering packages, and providing user services. They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.
Use of Information
Escribto Academy uses any information voluntarily given by our users or donors to enhance their experience in our network of sites, whether to provide interactive or personalized elements on the sites or to better prepare future content based on the interests of our users.
As stated above, we use information that users voluntarily provide in order to send out electronic newsletters and to enable users to participate in surveys and forums. We send out newsletters to subscribers on a regular schedule (depending on the newsletter), and occasionally send out special editions, event-related emails, and announcements when we think subscribers might be particularly interested in something we are doing. Escribto Academy never shares mailing lists with any third parties.
When we use tracking information to determine which areas of our sites users like and don't like based on traffic to those areas, we do not track what individual users read, but rather how well each page performs overall. This helps us continue to build a better service for you. We track search terms entered in Search function as one of many measures of what interests our users. But we don't track which terms a particular user enters.
Escribto Academy uses the above-described information to tailor our content to suit your needs and help our funders better understand our audience's demographics. We will not sell or share information about individual users with any third party, except to comply with applicable law or valid legal process or to protect the personal safety of our users or the public. We do not sell or share donor information that we collect either offline or online with outside parties.
Escribto Academy operates secure data networks protected by industry standard firewall and password protection systems. Our security and privacy policies are periodically reviewed and enhanced as necessary and only authorized individuals at Escribto Academy or acting on Escribto Academy 's behalf have access to the information supported by our users and.
