Collection and Use of Personal Information
When you subscribe to one of our products or services, or participate in surveys, forums or discussion groups (when made available), New Society Publishers Ltd. may ask you to provide certain information about yourself and the company you work for. It is completely optional for you to engage in these activities. Depending upon the activity, some of the information that we ask you to provide is identified as mandatory and some as voluntary. If you do not provide the mandatory data with respect to a particular activity, you will not be able to engage in that activity.
The information provided by subscribers and prospects is used by New Society Publishers Ltd. to email the bulletin, to contact you about product promotions, to identify you as a subscriber, and to contact you about your account or other benefits that may be available to subscribers. Personal information that you provide to New Society Publishers Ltd. will not be made available to any other company for that company's use without your permission. New Society Publishers Ltd. may make aggregate information about our subscribers (i.e. overall statistics) available to third parties for advertising and other purposes. Information that personally identifies you will be kept strictly confidential.
However, we may use, disclose, and communicate your personal information if required to do so by law including by an order of any court.
As you browse our and other websites, online ad networks we work with may place anonymous cookies on your computer, and use similar technologies, in order to understand your interests based on your (anonymous) online activities, and thus to tailor more relevant ads to you. If you do not wish to receive such tailored advertising, you can visit this page to opt out of most companies that engage in such advertising. (This will not prevent you from seeing ads; the ads simply will not be delivered through these targeting methods.)
