OUR PRIVACY POLICY

We collect and use  personal information only as needed to deliver our products, services,  and websites, and to communicate with you about those items or as you have requested. Your personal information includes information such as:

  • Name
  • Address
  • Telephone number
  • Email address
  • Other data collected that could directly or indirectly identify you.


Our Privacy Policy not only explains how and why we use your personal  information that we collect, but also how you can access, update or otherwise take control of your personal information.  


If at any time you have questions about our practices or any of your  rights described below, you may contact us at inquiry@shadowfusionbooks.com


What information we collect, how we collect it, and why  


Much of what you likely consider personal information is collected directly from you when you complete contact forms or request newsletters or other information from us (ex: email); or participate in contests and surveys, or otherwise  participate in activities we promote that might require information about you.


However, we also collect additional information when delivering our services to you to ensure necessary and optimal performance. These  methods of collection may not be as obvious to you, so we thought we’d  highlight and explain a bit more about what these might be (as they vary  from time to time):


Cookies and similar technologies on our websites  allow us to track your browsing behavior,  links clicked, your device type, and to collect various  data, including analytics, about how you use and interact with our services. These technologies automatically collect data when you use and  interact with our services, including metadata, log files,  cookie/device IDs, page load time, server response time, and approximate  location information to measure website performance and improve our  systems, including optimizing DNS resolution, network routing and server  configurations. Specifically, interactions with the features, content  and links (including those of third-parties, such as social media  plugins) contained within the services, Internet Protocol (IP) address,  browser type and settings, the date and time the Services were used,  information about browser configuration and plugins, language  preferences and cookie data, information about devices accessing the  Services, including type of device, what operating system is used,  device settings, application IDs, unique device identifiers and error  data is collected.


Supplemented Data may be received about you from other sources, including publicly available databases or third parties  from whom we have purchased data.  We may combine this data  with information we already have about you so that we can update,  expand and analyze the accuracy of our records, and provide products and services that may be of interest to you. If you  provide us personal information about others, or if others give us your information, we will only use that information for the specific reason for which it was provided to us.


How we utilize information.  

We strongly believe in both minimizing the data we collect and  limiting its use and purpose to only that (1) for which we have been  given permission, (2) as necessary to deliver the services you interact with, or (3) as we might be required or permitted for legal  compliance or other lawful purposes:


Delivering, improving, updating and enhancing our Services.

We collect various information relating to your use and/or interactions with our sites. We utilize this information to:

  • Improve and optimize the operation and performance of our websites
  • Diagnose problems with and identify any security risks, errors, or needed enhancements to the websites
  • Detect and prevent fraud and abuse of our websites and systems
  • Collecting aggregate statistics about use of the websites
  • Understand and analyze how you use our websites and what products and services are most relevant to you.


Much of the data collected is aggregated or statistical data about  how individuals use our Services, and is not linked to any personal  information.

   

Sharing with trusted third parties. 

We  may share your personal information with  trusted third party service providers as necessary for them to perform  services on our behalf, such as:

  • Serving advertisements
  • Conducting contests or surveys
  • Performing analysis of our websites and customers demographics
  • Communicating with you, such as by way email or survey delivery
  • Customer relationship management


We only share your personal information as necessary for any third  party to provide the services as requested or as needed on our behalf.  These third parties (and any subcontractors they may be permitted to  use) are subject to strict data processing terms and conditions and are prohibited from utilizing, sharing or retaining your personal  information for any purpose other than as they have been specifically  contracted for (or without your consent).


We may also share your information with third parties for the purpose  of facilitating / allowing a merger, acquisition or sale of all or  substantially all of our assets, in which case the acquiring company may  continue to utilize your data in the manner for which it was provided  and intended.


Communicating with you. 

We may contact  you by e-mail, directly or through a third party service provider, regarding products or services you have signed up or purchased from us, such as necessary to deliver transactional or service related communications. You don’t need to provide consent as a condition  to purchase our goods or services.


You may also unsubscribe at any time by contacting us at inquiryt@shadowfusionbooks.com  and asking to be removed from our mailing list. If you believe that anyone has provided us with your  personal information and you would like to request that it be removed  from our database, please contact us at inquiry@shadowfusionbooks.com,


Transfer of personal information abroad. If you utilize our websites from a country other than the country where our  servers are located, your personal information may be transferred across  international borders. 


Compliance with legal, regulatory and law enforcement requests. We cooperate with government and law enforcement officials and private  parties to enforce and comply with the law. We will disclose any  information about you to government or law enforcement officials or  private parties as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or  appropriate to respond to claims and legal process (such as subpoena  requests), to protect our property and rights or the property and rights  of a third party, to protect the safety of the public or any person, or  to prevent or stop activity we consider to be illegal or unethical.


To the extent we are legally permitted to do so, we will take  reasonable steps to notify you in the event that we are required to  provide your personal information to third parties as part of legal  process. 


How we secure, store and retain your data.  

We follow generally accepted standards to store and  protect the personal information we collect, both during transmission  and once received and stored, including utilization of encryption where  appropriate.


We retain personal information only for as long as necessary to  provide the services you have requested and thereafter for a variety of  legitimate legal or business purposes. These might include retention  periods:

  • mandated by law, contract or similar obligations applicable to our business operations;
  • for preserving, resolving, defending or enforcing our legal/contractual rights; or
  • needed to maintain adequate and accurate business and financial records.


If you have any questions about the security or retention of your personal information, you can contact us at inquiry@shadowfusionbooks.com,


How you can access, update or delete your data.  

If you wish to update your data or have it deleted, contact us at inquiry@shadowfusionbooks.com.


‘Do Not Track’ notifications.  

Some browsers allow you to automatically notify websites you visit  not to track you using a “Do Not Track” signal. There is no consensus  among industry participants as to what “Do Not Track” means in this  context. Like many websites and online services, we currently do not  alter our practices when we receive a “Do Not Track” signal from a  visitor’s browser. To find out more about “Do Not Track,” you may wish  to visit www.allaboutdnt.com.


Age restrictions.  

Our materials are intended for consumption by individuals aged 14 and older.  They  are not targeted to, intended to be consumed by, or designed to entice individuals under the age of 14. If you know of or  have reason to believe anyone under the age of 14 has provided us with any personal information, please contact us.


Non-Discrimination.  

We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of  your privacy rights. Unless permitted under applicable laws, we will  not:

  • Deny you goods or services.
  • Charge you different prices or rates for goods or services,  including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing  penalties.
  • Provide you a different level or quality of goods or services.
  • Suggest that you may receive a different price or rate for goods or  services or a different level or quality of goods or services.


Changes to this policy.  

We reserve the right to modify this Privacy Policy at any time. If  we decide to change our Privacy Policy, we will post those changes to  this Privacy Policy and any other places we deem appropriate, so that  you are aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under  what circumstances, if any, we disclose it. If we make material changes  to this Privacy Policy, we will notify you here, by email, or by means  of a notice on our home page, at least thirty (30) days prior to the  implementation of the changes.
