Privacy Policy

The Privacy Policy explains how New Society Publishers Ltd. will collect, use, disclose and store the personal information you give us when you purchase and use one of our paper, electronic or online products. The information required is gathered when you subscribe to one of our paper, electronic and online products or services, or, when you complete a customer survey. We collect user information such as contact data, email addresses, product preferences, payment information, and other relevant market data. We have taken every reasonable precaution to store the data that is collected in a secure manner.

By purchasing and using any of our products, you agree to the terms of the Privacy Policy on user information as outlined below, and the Terms of Use. If you do not agree to these terms, please do not access or use any of our products or services. From time to time, New Society Publishers Ltd. may introduce new products and services to its subscribers. New Society Publishers Ltd. reserves the right to modify this policy at any time, at its sole discretion. New Society Publishers Ltd. will notify subscribers via electronic mail or regular mail in advance of any such modification and change. Subscribers will be subject to the most current version of the privacy policy at the time of use of any of the New Society Publishers Ltd. products or services.

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.

If you tell us in writing or by email that you do not want any further contact, we will respect your request and remove your data. Please note that any information you post on a public bulletin board, chat or discussion room (when made available) in one of our electronic or online products or services are available to all persons accessing that electronic or online product or service. Furthermore, information, which you choose to provide to another party or website, will be subject to their Privacy Policy and Terms of Use and Disclaimer. For example, if you access a site from our information or from a link while on our site, information you provide to that party is subject to their Privacy Policy rather than ours. We will not be responsible for any use or disclosure of any such information by that party.
