Privacy Policy

Your privacy is important to us.

We don’t ask for your personal information unless we truly need it.

We don’t share your personal information with third-parties, except where required by law.

It is BookSweeps’ policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect from you across our website, https://booksweeps.com.

Personal Information

We may ask you for personal information, such as your name, email, address and payment details (for authors and publishing professionals). We collect only the personal information relevant to providing you with a service, and use your information only to ensure the fulfilment of this service. You are free to refuse our request for your personal information, with the understanding that we may be unable to provide you with some of your desired services without this information.

We do not share your personal information with third-parties, except where required by law or to protect our own rights. We will only retain personal information for as long as necessary to provide you with a service.

Cookies

We use “cookies” to collect information about you and your while visiting our site. A cookie is a small piece of data that our website stores on your computer, and accesses each time you visit so we can understand how you use our site and serve you content based on preferences you have specified.

If you do not wish to accept cookies from us, you should instruct your browser to refuse cookies from our website, with the understanding that we may be unable to provide you with some of your desired service without them. This policy covers only the use of cookies between your computer and our website; it does not cover the use of cookies on any third-party sites, including author websites. Please refer to the privacy policy on those sites for more information.

Third-Party Services

We may employ third-party companies and individuals on our websites – for example, analytics providers and content partners. These third parties have access to your personal information only to perform specific tasks on our behalf, and are obligated not to disclose or use it for any other purpose. 

Security

We take security seriously, and we take commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information from loss or theft, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use or modification. That said, we advise that no method of electronic transmission or storage is 100% secure, and cannot guarantee the absolute security of your data.

Links to Other Sites

Our website may link to external sites that are not operated by us. Please be aware that we have no control over the content and practices of these sites, and cannot assume responsibility for their treatment of your personal information. This privacy policy only covers our website and privacy practices.

Children’s Privacy

We do not knowingly collect or store personal information from children (visitors under the age of 13). If you believe your child has provided us with personal information, please contact us immediately, and we will promptly delete the data.

Changes to our Privacy Policy

At our discretion, we may change our privacy policy from time to time. We will post on the website a prominent notice of any changes to our privacy policy. Your continued use of the site after any stated changes will be regarded as acceptance of the updated policy.

Business Transfers

If our assets are acquired in any transaction or change of control, or in the unlikely event that we go out of business or enter bankruptcy, we would include user information among our assets transferred to or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any parties who acquire our assets may continue to use your personal information according to this policy, as amended.
