Privacy Statement


What this Privacy Policy Covers

When you visit a Web site, you sometimes provide information about your visit to the site’s owners. This may include nph.net. We value privacy and think you do too, so we want you to have the information you need to make your own decisions about your personal privacy. When you visit or supply information to any Web site, we think it’s a good idea for you to first understand what that site’s privacy policies are. If the site doesn’t tell you, don’t hesitate to ask.

This privacy policy covers Northwestern Publishing House’s treatment of personally identifiable information that Northwestern Publishing House collects when you are at the nph.net site and when you use nph.net’s services.

This policy does not apply to the practices of companies that nph.net does not own or control or to people that nph.net does not employ or manage.

The bottom line at nph.net is that we use the information that we get from your visit for internal tracking purposes, to make nph.net as useful and interesting to you as we can, and to respond to your requests for information or other services.

Privacy

While doing business with you, we may have to gather certain information, such as your name, home address, and e-mail address. We will not sell, rent, trade or give away individual, personally identifiable information entered on this site to any third party. We collect such information so that we can process orders, personalize your shopping experience, or send you the latest product and other useful material.

Northwestern Publishing House uses information for three general purposes: to customize the content you see on our pages, to fulfill your requests for certain products and services, and to contact you about specials, new products, and related information.

Northwestern Publishing House will send personally identifiable information about you to other companies or people ONLY when:

  • we have your consent to share the information.
  • we need to share your information to provide the product or service you have requested.
  • we need to send the information to companies who work on behalf of Northwestern Publishing House to provide a product or service to you. (Unless we tell you differently, these companies do not have any right to use the personally identifiable information we provide to them beyond what is necessary to assist us.)
  • we respond to subpoenas, court orders, or legal processes.

Any other information, feedback, data, questions, comments, or suggestions regarding the content of this Web site will not be considered confidential, and Northwestern Publishing House will be free to reproduce, use, disclose, and distribute the response to others, without limitation. You agree that Northwestern Publishing House is free to use any ideas, concepts, or techniques contained in your response for any purpose whatsoever, including but not limited to developing, manufacturing, and marketing products incorporating those ideas, concepts, or techniques.

Visitor Registration or Requests for Information

Northwestern Publishing House only collects personal information that you choose to provide voluntarily when using or registering with the nph.net site. Personal information includes information that can identify you as a specific individual, such as your name or e-mail address and, in the case of license agreements, your name and company name. While you can browse our site without registering, you will need to register in order to take advantage of certain features, such as requesting updates on promotional offers.

Online Orders

Northwestern Publishing House also collects credit card information from you to process purchases from the site. Reputable third-party financial institutions handle our credit card transactions.

Whenever you transmit credit card information and other personal information through our site, the numbers and letters are scrambled using encryption technology, making it nearly impossible for the information to be stolen or intercepted. To protect your security, we do not allow you to store your credit card number from session to session.

Browsing and the Use of Cookies

Northwestern Publishing House uses cookie technology as part of our Web site’s statistical reporting. A cookie is a small piece of information sent by a Web site that is saved on your hard disk by your computer’s browser. It holds information a site may need to personalize your experience (i.e. rotating images on nph.net’s homepage) and to gather Web site statistical data, such as which pages are visited, what is downloaded, the Internet provider’s domain name and country that our visitors come from (e.g. "aol.com" or "umich.edu"), and the addresses of sites visited immediately before and after coming to nph.net. However, none of this is associated with you as an individual. It is measured only in aggregate. The information in the cookies lets us trace your "click stream" activity (i.e., the paths taken by visitors to our site as they move from page to page. Cookies do not capture your individual e-mail address or any private information about you.)

We also use standard Web server log files to help us count visitors and evaluate our site’s technical capacity. We use this information to find out how many people visit nph.net, to help us arrange the pages in the most user-friendly way, to keep the site browser friendly, and to make our pages more useful to our visitors. We record information on site traffic but not information on individual visitors to our site, so no information about you in particular is kept or used.

To browse without cookies, you can configure your browser to reject all cookies or to notify you when a cookie is set. (Each browser is different, so check the "Help" menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences.)

E-MAIL, Mailing Lists and Other Services

When you send us an e-mail, we use your e-mail address to thank you for your comment and/or to reply to your question, and we will store your communication and our reply in case we correspond further.

When you request information or other services, we use your e-mail address and any other information you give us to provide you with the information or other services you requested, until you ask us to stop (using the "unsubscribe" instructions provided with each e-mail and/or on the site where you signed up and/or as we otherwise provide) or until the information or service is no longer available. We will not use your address or other information to provide you with any unsolicited message or information (unless that is part of the service you are requesting), nor will we share it with or sell, rent, or lease it to any third party for such use.

Your browsing and interaction on any other Web site, including any site that has a link on nph.net, is subject to the rules and policies of that site. We encourage you to read the rules and policies of the sites you visit to further understand their procedures for collecting, using, and disclosing personal information.
