What Information Is Collected and How is it Used?
A. General Collection and Use of Personal Identifying Information
EBSCO will only collect and use personal identifying information (such as a first and last name, physical address including a street name, e-mail address, etc.) when a user voluntarily provides it to us. In order to use some portions of our websites, or in order to undertake certain actions (such as setting up an account to subscribe to a magazine), a user must first complete a registration form that will require disclosure of personal identifying information. Such information may include, but is not limited to: Full name, business name, business type, mailing address, billing address, phone number, fax number and e-mail address.
We will use the personal identifying information we collect for limited internal purposes that may include, but are not limited to, processing your transactions, establishing the identity of account holders, customer service, development, content processing, content classification, and providing you with information concerning our services. We will retain this information. We also may use that personal identifying information to improve and customize our content. In order to contact us by e-mail, you must provide an e-mail address.
We reserve the right to disclose your personal identifying information if we are required to do so by law, or in the good faith belief that disclosure of the information is reasonably necessary to comply with legal process, to respond to claims, or to protect or advance the rights, property, safety, or well-being of our company, our employees, customers, or the public. EBSCO will not share or distribute your information to any third party.
B. Collection and Use of Information From Children
Some pages at our sites offer magazine titles directed toward children. With respect to those pages, we comply with the provisions of the Children's On-Line Privacy Protection Act ("COPPA"). Accordingly, at those pages directed toward children, we limit our collection of information to non-personal identifying information. At those pages, we do not collect personal identifying information (such as e-mail addresses, first and last name). We only use the non-personal identifying information we collect for internal uses, such as improving and customizing our content. We will not share or distribute this information to any third party.
C. Collection of Non-Personal Identifying Information
We collect and use non-personal identifying information, including IP addresses and web server log files to track trends, administer the website, track user movement, and gather demographic information. We use this non-personal identifying information in the aggregate. We do not combine these types of non-personal identifying information with personal identifying information. We may also share aggregated demographic information with our business partners, sponsors, advertisers, and companies that control, are controlled by, or are under common control with EBSCO.
D. Cookies and Web Service Log File Data
E. Information for Parents
Most of the EBSCO site is not directed toward children (as defined by COPPA) and these sites are not designed to collect personal identifying information from children. A few pages at our site contain publications that may be of interest to children. At those pages, we do not collect personal identifying information. Children should not provide information and should ask a parent help them. We urge parents to experience the World Wide Web with their children. If parents have any suggestions or comments please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 1-800-527-5901.
ERRSS has taken steps to ensure that personal identifying information collected is secure, and we have limited the number of people who have access to the information. Electronic security systems and password protections are in place to guard against unauthorized access. EBSCO provides links to web sites outside of ERRSS. These web sites may not have the same privacy policies as EBSCO. EBSCO takes reasonable care in recommending these web sites but is not responsible for their content or privacy policies. We urge users to read the privacy statement of an outside web site when leaving our site and linking to an outside website.
We always use industry-standard encryption technologies when transferring and receiving consumer data exchanged with our site. We have appropriate security measures in place in our physical facilities to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of information that we have collected from you at our site.
