What about Cookies
Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer's hard drive through your browser to enable our systems to recognize your browser and tell us how and when pages in our site are visited and by how many people. Again, Stalin Digital Archive Service cookies do not collect personal information, and we do not combine information collected through cookies with other personal information to tell us who you are or what your account name or email address is.
How is your Information used?
The type of information you provide governs how it will be used. Yale may use the personal information you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests for certain products and services, customizing the content you see, communicating with you about sales promotions and new products, and to improve the Stalin Digital Archive Service.
The information you provide us through our “Contact Us” email address, emails to the Publicity Department, Sales Department, Customer Service or other Yale University Press email addresses will be used to provide you assistance in your request or to improve the Stalin Digital Archive Service.
Will Yale Share Any of the Information it Receives?
Information about our customers is an integral part of our business. We neither rent nor sell your personal information to anyone. We share your personal information only with the entities that are controlled by Yale and as described below.
We employ other companies and people to perform tasks on our behalf and need to share your information with them to provide products or services to you. Examples may include fulfilling orders, sending postal mail and e-mail, removing repetitive information from customer lists, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, processing credit card payments, providing customer service and providing technical services. We may also provide your personal information to agents who will use it to verify aggregate usage data that we provide to our partners.
• Business Transfers:
In some cases, we may choose to buy or sell assets or businesses. In these types of transactions, customer information is typically one of the business assets that are transferred. Moreover, if the Stalin Digital Archive Service, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, customer information would be one of the assets that are transferred.
• Protection of Yale and Others:
We may release personal information when we believe in good faith that release is necessary to comply with the law; enforce or apply our Terms and Conditions and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of Yale, our employees, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
• With Your Consent:
Except as set forth above, you will be notified when your personal information may be shared with third parties.
• With User Generated Content:
“User Generated Content” is information, including content, messages, text files, images, profiles, works of authorship, or other materials, that you and other Users share with the Stalin Digital Archive community. You should be aware that Personal Information which you voluntarily include in the Stalin Digital Archive discussion board area, your user Profile and other public User Generated Content, such as tags and annotations, may be viewed and used by other registered Stalin Digital Archive users. We are unable to control such uses of your Personal Information, and by using such services you assume the risk that the Personal Information provided by you may be viewed and used by third parties. We cannot remove your Personal Information from the records of any third party who has been provided with your information in association with your User Generated Content. Take great care when deciding what to post in a discussion board, public tag or public annotation: your username and posts may unwittingly reveal Personal Information to other Stalin Digital Archive users.
