Swedish Book Review is committed to protecting your privacy. So that you fully understand your rights, we encourage you to read this privacy statement. If you have any questions regarding this statement, please direct them to firstname.lastname@example.org
When does Swedish Book Review collect my personal information?
Swedish Book Review gathers information from members and visitors in three ways: voluntary registration / membership, cookies and IP addresses. Here is some further information:
When you become an SBR member, we collect information that helps us identify you. At the initial registration screen we ask for your name and email address. On occasion, we may also ask for additional personal information if you choose to enter a contest, take part in a giveaway, fill in a form or sign up for our newsletter.
We will not share any of this personal information without your consent.
An IP address is a number that is assigned to your computer automatically when you use the Internet. When you visit a particular web page on the Swedish Book Review site, our server logs your IP address. We may log IP addresses for the purposes of systems administration, security, or to report information in aggregate form to our retail partners and advertisers (e.g., how many visitors logged in to our website) in a form that is not personally identifiable.
How is my personal information used?
If you have signed up to receive one of our email newsletters, Swedish Book Review will send you emails periodically containing highlights, updates, offers, competitions and more. If at any time you wish to remove your details from the mailing list, simply click the unsubscribe link in any of our newsletters. If you choose to give us extra information about yourself in the sign-up form or by updating your preferences, we may use that to personalise the emails you receive. You have the right to ask us for a copy of the information we hold about you or ask us to change it if you think it is wrong. Please contact us for more information if this is the case.
Customized look and feel
Swedish Book Review gathers the information noted above in order to provide you with a more personalized experience of the site. For instance, your personal information enables us to greet you when you return to our site and to provide you with specific information and services we think will be of interest to you. We review our members’ preferences, demographics, traffic patterns, and other information — as a whole — so that we can better understand who our audience is and what it wants.
Who does Swedish Book Review share information with?
We will not disclose your personal information to third parties, except to the extent necessary to provide you with a requested service, or under circumstances required by law. We will disclose your personal information when we believe in good faith that any applicable law, regulation or legal process requires it, or where we believe disclosure is necessary to protect or enforce our rights or the rights of another member. We also disclose aggregated member statistics in order to describe our services and audience to prospective partners, advertisers and other third parties. However, aggregate data is not traceable to you specifically.
What are my options to control the use of my personal information?
Most browsers can be configured to reject cookies or alert you when cookies are being sent. You may cancel your membership to Swedish Book Review and/or request the removal of your personal information from our member records by contacting us. We will send an email to confirm your request. After you respond, we will remove your information from our database. Residual information may remain in our archives and records, but this information will not be used for a commercial purpose.
What else should I know about my privacy?
You should be aware that if you voluntarily disclose personal information online in a public area, that information might be collected and used by others. We do not control the actions of our visitors and registered members. If you disclose personal information on our Facebook or Twitter accounts, or any other publicly accessible place on or associated with the Swedish Book Review site, you do so at your own risk and you understand that your information may be collected and used by others. Please remember that protection of your privacy begins with you.
Swedish Book Review will not share your personal information with third parties unless you have consented to the disclosure or the disclosure is necessary to (1) comply with the law or with legal process, (2) protect and defend our rights and property, (3) protect our customers or users from misuse or unauthorized use of the Swedish Book Review website or (4) protect the personal safety or property of our customers or the public.
Links to other websites
The Swedish Book Review website may contain links to other sites, operated by third parties, that we think may be of interest to you. Swedish Book Review is not responsible for the actions of those third parties, the content of their websites or any practices they may follow.
