When a visitor requests information from a Website, we automatically collect certain non-personally identifiable information about the request. This information includes the IP address of the computer making the request, the time and date of the request, the type of web browser being used, and, sometimes, the page from which the visitor is coming. The information does not contain the visitor’s name or email address.
Workman Publishing analyzes this information to learn about how visitors are using the content of the Websites and to allocate resources effectively and improve content.
In certain situations, we may collect personally identifiable information from you. For example, we may collect our users’ first and last names, shipping address, email address, phone number, and payment information. We may also collect and store users’ order history.
Except as specifically stated herein, Workman Publishing does not share or sell personally identifiable information to other companies. We may use the information you provide for our own internal purposes; for example, to send email announcements of events to users who registered for similar events and to alert users of offers that we believe may interest them. We may also use this information in order to complete transactions that you request, such as to place and fulfill orders, to allow our users to maintain a personal profile on a Website, and to make ordering from the Website faster and easier. Users’ profiles are completely private. Additionally, Workman Publishing may choose, on occasion, to include third-party offers in our communications with you. We maintain appropriate and reasonable safeguards to ensure the integrity, security, and privacy of the information in our possession.
If Workman Publishing is acquired by another company, that company will take on all responsibility for the personal information we collect and it will assume all rights and obligations with respect to that information. Should this happen, the acquiring company may implement its own policy with respect to your information.
When directed by a court of law or other government entity, or if we have a good faith basis to believe such action is necessary to comply with the law, we may be obligated to disclose personal information. In such an event, we will comply with the law and make commercially reasonable efforts to notify you, if legal.
You may opt out of receiving any email announcements when you register for one of our offerings. In addition, our email communications with you will provide a link allowing you to unsubscribe from future correspondence. Please note, however, that unsubscribing will not prevent emails relating to specific purchases that you make on a Website. If a particular registration form or email does not have an unsubscribe option, or if you’d like to be removed from our lists for any reason, notify Workman Publishing directly by emailing email@example.com. Please include your name, email address, and the offer for which you were registered so that we can effectively remove you from our lists.
There are many activities offered by Workman Publishing that children can participate in and enjoy without having to share personally identifiable information.
For those activities that require personally identifiable information, such as contests and sweepstakes (in compliance with COPPA), Workman Publishing will not condition a child’s participation in an activity on that child disclosing more personally identifiable information than is reasonably necessary to administer the activity. For certain online activities, we require verifiable parental consent before collecting or using a child’s personally identifiable information. With these activities, Workman Publishing will notify the respective parent of this Policy and obtain verifiable parental consent before collecting personally identifiable information from a child.
Under COPPA, parents have the right to review and/or request deletion of their child’s personally identifiable information from Workman Publishing’s records, and to refuse permission to the further use and collection of a child’s information by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Workman Publishing may share certain personally identifiable information with certain third-party service providers; for instance, to provide software to administer contests and sweepstakes. Workman Publishing also uses third-party affiliate cookies to gather data about purchases made on the Website in connection with one of our partners.
California Civil Code Section 1798.83 allows our California users to request certain information regarding disclosure of personal information to third parties for direct marketing purposes. Please email us at email@example.com for such requests.
Workman Publishing provides links to online bookstores and other retailers who may collect information from customers and share that information with Workman Publishing. Workman Publishing may use this information for marketing or research purposes, but will not disclose this information to other third parties except as provided herein. As mentioned above, these third-party bookstores may distribute third-party cookies through the Websites. We may receive affiliate fees for linking you to purchases on other websites. When information is collected through these third-party cookies, and when you leave a Website to make a purchase or otherwise visit one of these third parties, this Policy will not apply to the data they collect. Please review the privacy policies of the applicable websites to see how your information is collected and treated by third parties. We maintain a list of our third-party bookstore affiliates and links to their privacy policies here:
We will update this list as commercially practicable.
The Websites may be linked to other sites that are not operated by Workman Publishing or any company affiliated with Workman Publishing. Workman Publishing is not responsible for the content or privacy practices of these third-party sites. Visitors to those sites should refer to their separate privacy policies and practices.
Workman Publishing may run contests and promotions on the Websites that may require the submission of personal information by participants. Workman Publishing may use the information collected during a contest in order to administer the contest and for research purposes; for example, to determine how many visitors participated in the contest. Please refer to the rules for individual contests and promotions.
Workman Publishing may obtain information from a user when a comment is posted on a Website by that user. Please note that any information that you post on the Website’s forums and blogs is available to the public, so please use caution when deciding what to post.
