Please note that we may need certain types of information so that we can provide certain services offered on the Website to you. If you do not provide us with such information, or ask us to delete it, you may no longer be able to access or use certain services on the Website.
We will update this list as commercially practicable.
While certain types of information described above, such as Usage Information and Third-Party Information, are generally non-identifying on a standalone basis, we may in certain instances combine this information with other information collected on the Website, as described above. If we ever combine non-identifying information with Personal Information or other information that enables you to be identified, we will treat such combined information as Personal Information.
We do not solicit or maintain personal data on any EU residents or companies.
A more detailed list of the cookies we currently, or in the future may, use and how we use, or may use, them are as follows:
Our Website may contain electronic images known as Web beacons (sometimes called single-pixel gifs) and are used along with cookies to compile aggregated statistics to analyze how the Website is used. We may use third parties to gather information about how you and others use the Website. For example, we will know how many users access a specific page and which Website Content they clicked on. We use this aggregated information to understand and optimize how the Website is used.
Your browser may give you the ability to control cookies, which may depend on the type of cookie, and browsers can be set to reject browser cookies. However, blocking or deleting cookies may prevent you from using most of the Website, or certain features, functionalities and/or services contained therein.
Some browsers have settings may allow you to automatically transmit a “Do Not Track” signal to websites and online service you visit. These features are not all uniform and there is no consensus among industry participants as to what “Do Not Track” means in this context. If you block cookies, certain features on the Website may not work. If you block or reject cookies, not all of the tracking described here will stop. Like many websites and online services, we 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,” please visit http://www.allaboutdnt.com. Note that certain options you select are browser- and device-specific.
We may use the information we collect about/from you to:
We may also use certain collected information on an aggregated and/or anonymized basis in order to conduct market research, engage in project planning, for troubleshooting purposes, to help detect and protect against error, fraud or other criminal activity.
We may also ask for your consent to process your Personal Information for a specific purpose that we communicate to you. When you consent to our processing your Personal Information for a specified purpose, you may withdraw your consent at any time, and we will stop processing of your data for that purpose.
Workman Publishing may obtain information from a user when a comment is posted on the 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.
We want to communicate with you only if you want to hear from us, such as in response to a request for information. 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.
In certain circumstances you have the right to access the Personal Information that we hold about you and to correct, update, or request deletion your Personal Information. Prior to the fulfilment of your request concerning your Personal Information, we will ask you to verify your identity before we can act upon your request. Even after you request that we delete your Personal Information, we may retain certain information as required by law or as necessary for our legitimate business purposes.
More specifically, you have the following rights:
As far as we process your Personal Information on the basis of our legitimate interests, you can object to processing at any time. You can find a detailed description of our processing activities and the legal basis herein. If you object to such processing, we ask you to state the grounds of your objection in order for us to examine the processing of your Personal Information and decide whether to adjust the processing accordingly.
We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect your information, both during transmission and once we receive it, and to keep such information confidential (unless it is non-confidential by nature, for example, publicly-available information) and free from any unauthorized alteration. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, and the nature of security risks is constantly evolving, as are the technical and organizational industry standards relating to management of those risks. While we strive to keep current our security technology and will review, refine and upgrade our security technology as we deem appropriate based on new tools that may become available in the future, the complete and absolute security of any Information collected, stored or used by us cannot therefore be guaranteed. In the unlikely event that an unauthorized third party compromises our security measures, we will not be responsible for any damages directly or indirectly caused by an unauthorized third party’s ability to view, use or disseminate such information. If you ever discover inaccuracies in our data or if your Personal Information changes, we urge you to notify us immediately.
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 email@example.com.
We may offer sweepstakes, contests, and other promotions through the Website (each of the foregoing offers, a “Promotion”) that may require registration. By participating in a Promotion, you are agreeing to the official rules that govern that Promotion, which may contain specific requirements of you, including, except where prohibited by law, allowing the sponsor(s) of the Promotion to use your name, voice, likeness or other indicia of persona in advertising or marketing associated with the Promotion. If you choose to enter a Promotion, your Personal Information may be disclosed to third parties or the public in connection with the administration of such Promotion, including, without limitation, in connection with winner selection, prize fulfillment, and as required by law or permitted by the Promotion’s official rules, such as on a winner’s list.

This addendum provides additional details about the personal information we collect about California consumers and the rights afforded to them under California Civil Code Section 1798.83 and the California Consumer Privacy Act or “CCPA”.
As also detailed in the “Information We Collect and Receive” section above, the Website collects that identifies, relates to, describes, references, is capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular California resident or his or her device (“personal information”). In particular, the Website has collected the following categories of personal information within the last twelve (12) months:
We do not collect the following categories of personal information, as each category as described in the CCPA:
Personal information does not include:
We collect personal information for the business and commercial purposes described in the “How We Use the Information We Collect” section above.
We share personal information with the categories of third parties described in the “How We Share the Information We Collect” section above. We do not sell (as such term is defined in the CCPA) personal information we collect (and will not sell it without providing a right to opt out).
Please note that we do use third-party cookies for certain purposes as further described in the “Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies Policy” section above.
Subject to certain limitations, the CCPA provides consumers (California residents) with specific rights regarding their personal information. This section describes your CCPA rights and explains how to exercise those rights, which specifically includes:
You have the right to request that Company disclose certain information to you about our collection and use of your personal information over the past 12 months. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request (see Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights subsection below), we will disclose to you:
You have the right to request that Company delete any of your personal information that we collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request (see Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights subsection below), we will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your personal information from our records, unless an exception applies.
We may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service provider(s) to:
To exercise the access, data portability, and deletion rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us by either:
Only you, or a person registered with the California Secretary of State that you authorize to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable consumer request related to your personal information. You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child.
You may only make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period. The verifiable consumer request must:
We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you.
Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an Account with us. However, we do consider requests made through your password protected Account sufficiently verified when the request relates to personal information associated with that specific account.
We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.
Workman Publishing endeavors to respond to a verifiable California residents request within forty-five (45) days of its receipt. If Workman Publishing requires more time (up to 90 days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing. If you have an account with us, we will deliver our written response to that account. If you do not have an account with us, we will deliver our written response by mail or electronically, at your option.
Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the verifiable consumer request’s receipt. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For data portability requests, we will select a format to provide your personal information that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance.
We will not sell your personal information to any party. If in the future, we anticipate selling your personal information to any party, we will provide you with the opt-out and opt-in rights required by the CCPA.
Workman Publishing will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights. Unless permitted by the CCPA, Workman Publishing will not:
