PRIVACY POLICY STATEMENT

Welcome to the Lerner Publishing Group website. This website is operated and maintained by Lerner Publishing Group, Inc. for itself and its subsidiaries, affiliates, and/or related entities.

Here at Lerner Publishing Group, we consider your privacy to be of the highest priority. Please take a couple of minutes to read and understand our privacy policies so that you understand how we treat your personal information. If you have any questions about this policy, the practices of this site, or your dealings with this site, you can contact us at the address below, or email us at info@lernerbooks.com. Each time you visit our website, we collect certain information from your computer. We collect the email addresses of those who communicate with us via email, aggregate information on what pages users’ access or visit and information volunteered by the user, such as survey information and/or site registrations, and sometimes we ask you for personal information. We consider your first and last name, e-mail address, street address and phone number to be personally identifiable information. The information we collect is not shared with other organizations for commercial purposes.

FOR PARENTS AND GUARDIANS

For any activity on our website that requires the disclosure of personally identifiable information, we may require verifiable consent from a parent or guardian before collecting or using any personally identifiable information from a child under the age of 13. In such cases, we will notify the parent or guardian of this policy and obtain verifiable consent before collecting personally identifiable information from the child, except that we may collect only the child’s name and online contact information for the purpose of seeking such consent from the child’s parent or guardian. When we seek consent from a parent or guardian, we will also advise the parent or guardian of the right to tell us that the personally identifiable information which we have collected for the child is not to be used for any activity other than the activity for which it was collected. A parent or guardian can request to review or have deleted from our records all personally identifiable information collected for a child and/or to permit no further use of that personally identifiable information by contacting us at the address below.

ACCESS TO OTHER SITES

While you are on www.lernerbooks.com, you will have the opportunity to visit, or link to, other sites not operated by Lerner Publishing Group. These sites may collect personally identifiable information about you. Lerner Publishing Group does not monitor or control sites operated by others, is not responsible for the information practices of these sites, and this privacy statement does not address the information practices of those web sites or advertisers. We recommend that you review the privacy policy of any linked site before using that site.

SECURE SHOPPING

All orders on www.lernerbooks.com are encrypted using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology – one of the most prevalent and secure systems available online. You can find detailed information about SSL technology and how it works online using any of the search engines.

EMAIL

We believe that your email address is private information and we will not rent or sell your email address to anyone. We will always try to contact you by phone if we have a question about an order you placed. If we are unable to reach you by phone, we may also try to contact you via email.

To provide co-branded services and features. We may offer co-branded services or features, such as contests, sweepstakes or other promotions together with a third party (“Co-Branded Services”). These Co-Branded Services may be hosted on Lerner Publishing Group’s services or on the third party’s service. By virtue of these relationships, we may share the information you submit in connection with the Co-Branded Service with the third party. The third party’s use of your information will be governed by the third party’s privacy policy.

To deliver relevant advertisements. Lerner Publishing Group and our service providers may use the information we collect from and about you to deliver relevant ads to you when you use the Lerner Publishing Group website or another service. As noted above, third-party advertising networks and advertisers may use cookies and similar technologies to collect and track information such as demographic information, inferred interests, aggregated information, and activity to assist them in delivering advertising that is more relevant to your interests. To find out more about third-party advertising networks and similar entities that use these technologies, see www.aboutads.info, and to opt-out of such advertising networks’ and services’ advertising practices, go to www.aboutads.info/choices.

USE OF COOKIES

Lerner Publishing Group, like many other e-commerce Web sites, uses “cookies.” A cookie is a very tiny piece of text we’re asking permission to place on your computer’s hard drive. If you agree by configuring your browser to accept cookies, then your browser adds the text in a small file on your computer. The cookie keeps track of your stay at our Web site.

In general, you can use Lerner’s websites in all ways without using the technology known as “cookies.” A cookie is a short identifier, stored on your computer that a site may use to identify you when you make return visits to it. Exceptions: The features of Lerner Digital’s Bookshelf were designed to work without cookies, so if you turn them off, you may still browse, search, and shop at our site. Performance may be slower, however, and the “Remember Me” feature (for Lerner Bookshelf users) will not function.

We may collect anonymous information on any of our sites to help us provide better customer service and a better customer experience. For example, we keep track of the domains from which people visit, and we measure aggregate user activity, but we do so in ways that keep user’s personal identity and information anonymous. Lerner Publishing Group or the analytic vendors it selects may use this data to analyze site usage trends and statistics, to help us improve our site.

When we collect personal data from you in connection with a transaction (an order, e-mail request, etc.) we may extract some information about that transaction in an anonymous format and combine it with other anonymous information such as clickstream data. This anonymous information is used and analyzed only at an aggregate level to help us understand trends and patterns in our site’s usage.

GOOGLE ANALYTICS

How Google uses data when you use our partners’ sites or apps”, located at www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/, or any other URL Google may provide from time to time.
