Lawful basis for processing

We only process personal information where we have a lawful basis for doing so, such as the following:

•    User consent – This is where you have given us explicit permission to process personal information for a given purpose. For example, if you complete one of our general enquiry forms, we would ask for your consent if we wanted to use your personal information for any other purpose. You have the right to withdraw this consent at any time. You can manage your preferences within your account or by contacting us.

•    Legitimate business purposes – This is where we have a legitimate interest, as a business, to process personal information. For example, where we are aware of copyright infringements on our Site, it is in our legitimate interests as a business to identify those responsible. We take due care to balance our interests against your right to privacy.

•    Contractual necessity – This is where we have to process personal information to meet our contractual obligations. For example, if you are a print subscriber, we would need to process your delivery address to fulfil your subscription.

•    Legal obligation – This is where we have to process personal information in order to comply with the law. For example, we process and retain customer invoice information to comply with financial regulations.

How Do We Use and Share the Information We Collect?

The main reason and purposes we collect the information you share with us is stated at the point of collection, including providing you with the products or service you requested.  We also use this information as well as the automated information collected to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track users’ movements around our Sites, and to conduct other research.  We also use this information to improve the content of our web pages, and to customize the content and layout of our pages.  All of this is done with the intention of making our Sites more useful to visitors.

We will share your information with third party service providers.  Examples include payment processors, data analytic companies, e-mail delivery companies, hosting companies, customer service and companies that assist us with marketing.  We contractually require these third party service providers to not use the information we share with them except to provide services on our behalf.

In the event that we undergo a business transition, like a merger, acquisition by another company, or sale of assets, either partial or full, we may transfer information that you have shared with us to the successor company.  We will make reasonable efforts to let you know as described in the Changes to Our Privacy Policy section of this Privacy Policy before transferring information you have shared with us.

With your consent, we may share information with third parties or allow them to collect information from our Sites in ways that may not be specifically described in this Privacy Policy.

If you have sent content through or posted content on the Sites, we may not be able to delete it.

How Long Do We Keep Your Information?

The length of time we retain your information depends on why we collected it and how we use it.  We will not retain information that you have shared with us for longer than is necessary for our business purposes or to allow us to meet our obligations under the law.

Our Sites are Not for Use by Minors

We do not knowingly market to or collect information from any person under the age of 13. To use the Sites, you must be the 13 years or older. By using the Sites, you hereby represent that you are at least 13 years or older in your place of residence. The website does not contain an application or other mechanism to determine the age of users. All information provided to us will be treated as if it was provided by person 13 years or older. If, however, we learn that a person has submitted information about himself or herself to us and is under the age of 13, we will attempt to delete the account and any related information as soon as possible.

EU Privacy Rights

Users who reside in the UK or in the European Economic Area have certain rights relating to the personal information we hold in accordance with and subject to the privacy laws to: (i) check whether we hold personal information about you and to access such data (in accordance with our policy); (ii) request the correction of personal information about you that is inaccurate; (iii) have a copy of the personal information we hold about you provided to you or another controller where technically feasible; (iv) request the erasure of your personal information; and (v) request the restriction of processing concerning you. To do so, please send your request to webmaster@grantspub.com and write “EU Privacy Rights”.

You may make a complaint in accordance with applicable privacy laws to a supervisory authority.

Data Security

We maintain a variety of commercially reasonable safeguards designed to protect information you have shared with us from unauthorized access and disclosure. For example, we use industry accepted tools and techniques to protect against unauthorized access to our systems. We have also implemented physical, technical and managerial safeguards to protect data you have shared with us. You should be aware, however, that we have no control over the security of other websites on the Internet that you might visit even when a link may appear to those websites from our Sites. If you share your computer or use a computer that is accessed by the general public, remember to sign off and close your browser window when you have finished your session. This will help to ensure that others cannot access your personally identifiable information.

As you are likely aware, no system can be completely secure. While we implement commercially reasonable measures to secure your information, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that information you have shared with us or other communications always will remain secure. In the event of a breach of the confidentiality or security of your personally identifiable information, we will notify you as required by law, if reasonably possible and as reasonably necessary so that you can take appropriate protective steps. We may notify you under such circumstances using the e-mail address(es) we have on record for you or through alternative means. You should also take care with how you handle and disclose your personally identifiable information. Please refer to the Federal Trade Commission’s Web site at http://www.consumer.ftc.gov/ for information about how to protect yourself against identity theft.

Third Party Sites

This Policy applies only to information collected by our Sites.  From time to time, we may display links to websites we do not own.  We do not control the collection or use of any information that occurs during your visit to those sites, and we make no representations about their privacy policies or practices.

Be careful of disclosing any of your personally identifiable information when leaving our Sites.

Do-Not-Track Disclosure

Certain web browsers may allow you to enable a “do not track” option that sends signals to the websites you visit indicating that you do not want your online activities tracked. This is different than blocking “cookies” as browsers with the “do not track” option selected may still accept “cookies.” Right now, there is no industry standard for how companies should respond to “do not track” signals, although one may be adopted in the future. We do not respond to “do not track” signals at this time. If we do so in the future, we will modify this Privacy Policy accordingly. More information about “do not track” is available at www.allaboutdnt.org.  Note that the information contained on this website is provided by a third party with which we have no affiliation.

Information Collected from Users Outside the United States

The Sites are hosted in the United States. If you are visiting the Sites from outside the United States, your information may be transferred to, stored and processed in the United States in accordance with this Privacy Policy and applicable US laws. Please note that data protection and other applicable laws of the United States may not be as comprehensive as those laws or regulations in your country or may otherwise differ from the data protection or consumer protection laws in your country. By using the Sites, you consent to transfer of your information to our facilities as described in this Privacy Policy.

Changes to Our Privacy Policy

We may occasionally update this Privacy Policy to reflect changes in our practices. When we post modifications to this Privacy Policy, we will revise the effective date at the top of this web page. Any non-material changes to this Policy will be effective immediately upon posting on the Sites. Your continued use of the Sites after the posting of the modified Privacy Policy constitutes your agreement to abide and be bound by it. If we make any material changes, we will notify you by email (sent to the e-mail address specified in your account) or by means of a notice on this website thirty (30) days prior to the change becoming effective. We encourage you to periodically review this page for the latest information on our privacy practices. If you object to any modification, your sole recourse is to stop using the Sites and/or to close your account.
