When other information is directly associated with personally identifiable information, this other information also becomes personally identifiable information for purposes of this policy.

Q2 What types of information are we collecting online and how are we collecting it?

Information Collected Through Technology:
We may collect information through technology to make our sites more interesting and useful to you and for various purposes related to our business. For instance, when you come to our site, your IP address is collected so that we know where to send information you are requesting. An IP address is often associated with the place from which you enter the Internet like your ISP (Internet service provider), your company, or your university. Standing alone, your IP address is not personally identifiable. We may combine IP addresses with personally identifiable information for various purposes, including enforcing compliance with our terms of use or to protect our service, Website, guests, or others.

Our Website may collect information through a variety to technical methods, including cookies and web beacons. Cookies are pieces of information that a Website sends to your computer while you are viewing the Website. Web beacons are small pieces of data that are embedded in images on the pages of Websites. We may use these technical methods for a variety of purposes, such as delivering content, and tracking and enhancing our guests' experience on our Website. For example, this information can enable the Website to remember important information that will make your use of the site more useful. These technical methods may enable us to collect and use information in a form that is personally identifiable.

General Uses

For example, we will use your personal information to reply to an e-mail inquiry you may send us, or to respond to your request for materials, such as Advance Readers Copies.

Non-Personally Identifiable Information
We may take your personally identifiable information and make it non-personally identifiable, either by combining it with information about other individuals (aggregating your information with information about other individuals), or by removing characteristics (such as your full name) that make the information personally identifiable to you (de-personalizing your information). Given the nature of such non-personally identifiable information, we may use and/or share such information without restriction.
Third Parties That Facilitate Communications and Transactions with You
Sometimes we hire third parties to help us deliver products, services or information, such as air courier companies. We may also work with third parties who help either gather your information or communicate with you. Nonetheless, except as separately permitted by other provisions of this Privacy Policy, these third parties are allowed to gather, receive, and use your information only for the purposes described in this paragraph or as required by law.
