Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy was updated on September 30, 2010.

This privacy statement discloses the privacy practices of LibreDigital, Inc., and its affiliates (referred to as LibreDigital or we) with respect to the LibreDigital web sites, including, but not limited to, the web sites located at www.skyshelf.com and www.newsstand.com (the Sites). It explains the information we collect when you visit and use the Sites, when you subscribe to and use or purchase products offered on or through the Sites (collectively, the LibreDigital Service), and how we use that information.

LibreDigital collects personally identifiable information (PII) through the Sites to create or enhance our relationship with you. We collect PII when you want us to furnish you with products, services or information or because you voluntarily submit information to participate in activities such as purchasing products, subscription registrations, surveys, forums, sweepstakes, contests and games, or in connection with content or suggestions you submit to us. We may also obtain PII from reputable third parties who have the right to collect and provide such PII to us.

When you voluntarily provide PII to LibreDigital, we inform you about who is collecting the information, how and why the information is collected, and how we use the information. When you provide your PII, LibreDigital notifies you of your options regarding use of your PII, including whether we share it with outside companies or third parties. We use your PII only for the purposes defined when you submit it.

Information Collection and Use

We will not sell, share, or rent the information we collect to others except as disclosed in this privacy policy.

PII could include your name, email address, mailing address, phone number, credit card billing information, and other contact information you voluntarily transmit with your communication to us. LibreDigital may collect PII from users at several points on the Sites.

We also may collect PII about you from our third-party affiliate or partner companies and from marketing or advertising companies that provide us with such information as part of their relationship with us. We may also collect information about you during your use of our Sites and the LibreDigital Service.

LibreDigital uses PII to serve your needs and our legitimate business purposes. We may use PII to track user movement and activity with regard to use of the LibreDigital Service. We may also use PII to verify your authority to enter our Sites, improve the content and general administration of the Sites and the LibreDigital Service, provide you with notice regarding goods and services you purchased or may wish to purchase, and for targeted advertising.

LibreDigital may also gather reading behavior statistics (RBS), including information on how many books a user read, how much time they spent reading, and how much they read. RBS allow you to track and monitor your reading behavior. LibreDigital may also use non-personally identifiable RBS to aggregate reader data for broad statistical purposes. You may always opt out of RBS tracking.

Registration

To use the Sites, you must complete the registration form. During registration, you must provide your email address. We use this email address to contact you about services on our Sites in which you have expressed an interest and as otherwise described in this privacy policy. You may opt out of notification of these services.

Ordering

When you place an order to purchase access to content, we may request information from you on our order form. You must provide contact information (such as name and billing address) and financial information (such as credit card number and expiration date). This information is used for billing purposes, to fill your orders, and as otherwise described in this privacy policy. If there is an issue with your order, this contact information may be used to contact you.

Cookies

Cookies are small bits of information that web sites can place on devices that use a browser to access the Internet. Cookies remember information about your activities on the site and enable the site operator to make your visits to the site enjoyable. If you register with LibreDigital as a customer and log on to our Sites using your password, LibreDigital uses cookies to identify you as a unique customer. We also may use cookies in a variety of ways to allow for easier log ons and relate use of our Sites to non-PII you provided to limit online ads to those consistent with your interests. We may also use cookies or similar tools to relate your use of our Sites to PII obtained from you or a reputable third party. If you ask us to send you information about our upcoming products or promotions, cookie and/or click-stream data about your activities on the Sites may allow us to limit the material we send you to the types of items we believe you find interesting. If we wish to coordinate your personal and web site activity information in this manner, we will obtain your express affirmative consent. Our cookies do not contain PII. You can program your computer to warn you each time a cookie is being sent or to refuse cookies completely. You can also clear cookies from your browser.

Public Forums

You may choose to disclose information, including PII, about yourself in our online forums, blogs, comments, chat rooms, virtual communities, message boards and user profiles for public view or in similar forums on the Sites (Public Forums). Information that you disclose in any Public Forum is public information and you agree that there is no expectation of privacy or confidentiality with respect to such information. You should be aware that PII you post in a Public Forum can be read, collected, or used by other users of the Public Forum, including, sending you unsolicited messages. We are not responsible for the PII you choose to submit in a Public Forum.

Aggregate Information

We use IP addresses from our log files to analyze trends, administer the Sites, track user movements, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to PII.

Sharing Information

We may share PII, RBS, data generated by cookies, and aggregate information with participating publishers and their affiliates with respect to products that are part of the LibreDigital Service for their own use. In addition, we may share PII with LibreDigital affiliates and our business partners.

When we partner to provide specific services, we share names or contact information needed by the third party to provide these services. These parties are not allowed to use PII except to provide these services. We use an outside credit card processing company to bill users for goods and services. This processing company is not allowed to retain, share, store or use PII for secondary purposes.

We will not sell your PII to any company or organization. We may transfer your PII to a successor entity upon a merger, acquisition, consolidation or other corporate reorganization in which LibreDigital participates or to a purchaser of all or substantially all of LibreDigital's assets to which the Sites relate.

We may also release PII when we believe that disclosure is appropriate to comply with the law or to protect the rights, property, or safety of LibreDigital, participating publishers, users, or others. This may include exchanging information with other companies and organizations to prevent fraud, protect intellectual property, and reduce credit risk.

In addition, we may share general, not user-specific, reading behavior statistics and aggregated content data with participating publishers. Such information will not contain PII.

Links to Third-Party Sites

The Sites may contain links to other web sites or resources over which LibreDigital does not have control (External Web Sites). While you are on our Sites, you may be re-directed to an External Web Site to complete a transaction. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of these External Web Sites. We encourage you to be aware when you leave our Sites and to read the privacy statements of each External Web Site that collects your PII. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by LibreDigital with respect to your use of the LibreDigital Service on our Sites. You acknowledge that LibreDigital is providing these links to you only as a convenience and further agree that LibreDigital is not responsible for the content of such External Web Sites.

Children's Privacy

The Sites are not intended for and LibreDigital does not target its services or the Sites to children under 13. LibreDigital does not knowingly collect PII from children under 13.

Surveys and Contests

We may request information from users via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is voluntary; therefore, you choose whether to disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and shipping address) and demographic information (such as zip code or age level). Contact information is used to notify winners and award prizes and as otherwise described in this privacy policy.

Special Offers

Occasionally, LibreDigital may send registered users information about products, services, and special deals via email. As a subscriber, you can elect not to receive such emails from LibreDigital, our participating publishers and other third-party partners.

Security

We employ reasonable and current security methods to prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure correct use of information. Your personal data is stored in a database located behind a firewall for added security. The server housing the database is physically protected at a secure, third-party site and is monitored by security personnel 24 hours a day. Only authorized personnel can access the data center and the particular server housing the database. No data transmission over the Internet or wireless network can be guaranteed to be secure. While we try to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or guarantee the security of information you transmit to us and you do so at your own risk. We do not encrypt normal web sessions with the Service; however, transmission to the Sites or service of credit card information uses SSL encryption to help protect the data.

Choice/Opt-Out

You choose whether you would like us to provide your PII to certain of our third-party partners. If you do not want your information shared, you may opt out of receiving certain information from our third-party partners during registration and certain purchases. If you do not opt out, your PII will be subject to the third-party privacy policies and terms of use and they may contact you with marketing messages. We cannot control activities of the third-party partners to whom we provide your PII and cannot guarantee that they adhere to the same privacy and security procedures as LibreDigital.

Changing or Removing Information

You have control over your PII and can change your registration or subscription information by accessing your account profile on the Sites. If you wish to stop future communications from LibreDigital, contact the customer service number below and request that your PII be permanently removed from our databases. We will send you confirmation of such removal. Residual information containing PII might remain in our databases. We will not give residual information to a third party or use it for commercial purposes.

Changes to This Privacy Policy

LibreDigital may periodically change its privacy policy. If we change our policy, we will post notice of the new policy on our home page. LibreDigital encourages you to review this privacy policy regularly for changes. Your continued use of the Sites and provision of PII will be subject to the terms of the current privacy policy.

If you have questions or concerns about our posted privacy policy, call our customer service department at (512) 334-5102 or write to LibreDigital, Attn: Privacy Department, 1835-B Kramer Lane, Suite 150, Austin, TX 78758.
