Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy

Welcome to Nomad Editions, LLC (the “Company”, “we” or “us”). We operate this website (the “Site”) and other publication websites (collectively, the “Sites”). We are strongly committed to protecting the privacy of your information and providing a safe and secure environment for you, our users.

With this in mind, we provide you this privacy policy (the “Policy”) to help you understand the kinds of information we may gather about you when you visit the Sites, how we may use and disclose the information, and how you can control, correct and/or update the information.

To be clear about the terminology we are using, when we use the phrase “Personal Information” in this Policy, we mean information about you that is personally identifiable, like your name, address, e-mail address, or phone number, as well as other non-public information that is associated with this personal information. When we use the phrase “Anonymous Information” in this Policy, we mean information that is not associated with or linked to your Personal Information. Anonymous Information does not enable identification of or contact with individual persons.

By visiting this Site, you are accepting the policies and practices described in this Policy. Each time you visit the Site, you agree and expressly consent to our collection, use and disclosure of the information that you provide as described in this Policy.

Your Personal Information is being processed and maintained by us in the United States where laws regarding processing of Personal Information may be less stringent than the laws in your country.

This Policy applies to all Sites that are operated by the Company. In addition to this general policy, each Site may have additional privacy provisions that are specific to the particular site. These supplemental disclosures are made in the Site-specific addenda below or in a disclosure made at the time we collect the information. These supplemental disclosures also govern the use of your information.

The Information We Gather

We collect information about you in three ways:

Information you voluntarily provide us. 

We collect and maintain information that you voluntarily submit to us during your use of the Sites. For example:

when you register for a Site, you may provide us certain information including your name, e-mail address, screen name, password, demographic information, and certain items of interest that we inquire about at the time of registration; if you sign up to receive a newsletter, we may require that you provide us contact information (e.g., e-mail or physical address); if you purchase a subscription for a Site, we collect credit card information; and you may provide us with personal information in the course of e-mail, customer support interactions, and surveys.

You can choose not to provide us with certain information, but this may stop you from gaining access to a Site. For more information on the types of information we collect, please see the How We Use Your Information section below.

Information we collect through your use of the Site. 

As you use the Site, certain information may also be passively collected. Through technologies like cookies, pixels, beacons and log files, we may collect information about how you use the Sites which we may use to deliver more useful content and information to you. By knowing about you, we can deliver more helpful information, programs, tools and advertisements. Please see the sections below: Cookies, Web Beacons, and Log Information for more information.

Information we receive from third parties. 

In addition to the information that you provide or we collect on the Site or through the Services, we may verify or collect certain information about you from third parties. For example, we may use your e-mail address to determine your street address or we may use your street address to obtain demographic information about you or the 9-digit ZIP code (ZIP+4) in which you live. This information may include household income, presence and age(s) of children, and other census data. We may combine this third-party information with the information we have already collected from you via our Sites. We protect and use this third-party information in the same way that we treat other information – in conformance with this Policy.

How We Use Your Information

We will use your Personal Information in the ways described below or described at the time that the information is collected.

To Provide the Sites. 

In general, we use your Personal Information as necessary or appropriate to:

administer your account; register you and provide you access to the Sites; respond to your inquiries or requests that you direct to us; send communications and administrative e-mails about the Sites;; personalize and better tailor the features, performance, and support of the Sites for your use; send you promotional/marketing information, newsletters, offers, or other information regarding opportunities and functionality that we think would be of particular interest to you (provided that we will not give your Personal Information to any third-party partner, other than those that assist us with administering or operating the Sites, without your consent); improve the quality of the Sites; and analyze, benchmark, and conduct research on, user data and user interactions with the Sites.

Cookies, Web Beacons and Log Information. We use cookies, web beacons, log information and IP addresses in the ways described above and below..

“Cookies” are small pieces of information that a website attaches to your browser when you visit a website. We may use both session Cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent Cookies (which stay on your computer until deleted) to provide you with a more personal and interactive experience with the Sites. For example, We do not store Personal Information in any Cookies on your computer. Persistent Cookies can be removed by following your Internet browser’s directions within the help tab. In order to use certain aspects of the Sites, your web browser must accept Cookies. If you choose to disable Cookies, some aspects of the Sites may not work properly..

We may also use Cookies, pixels, “Web Beacons” (which are usually small, transparent graphic images) and navigational data like Uniform Resource Locators (URL) to gather information regarding the date and time of your visit, the features and information for which you searched and viewed, the e-mail you opened, or on which of the advertisements displayed on the Sites you clicked. This type of information is collected to make the Sites more useful to you and to tailor the experience with us to meet your special interests and needs.

An “Internet protocol address” or “IP Address” is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet. We, or our service providers, may track your IP Address when you access the Sites to assist with delivering geographically targeted advertisements.

How We Disclose Information to Third Parties

We know how important it is to keep the information you’ve entrusted to us confidential. We will not rent, sell or share your Personal Information with third parties except as specifically approved or under the circumstances described below. If you do not want us to use or disclose Personal Information collected about you in the ways identified in this Policy, you should not use the Sites.

Disclosure for legal reasons. We may disclose and release your Personal Information to third parties: (a) to comply with valid legal requirements such as a law, regulation, search warrant, subpoena, or court order; or (b) in special cases, such as a physical threat to you or others, a threat to homeland security, a threat to our system or network, or cases in which we believe it is reasonably necessary to investigate or prevent harm, fraud, abuse, illegal conduct, or a violation or alleged violation of this Policy or other agreement we may have with you.

Agents and Contractors. We may provide your Personal Information to third-party service providers who work on our behalf or help us to operate our business and the Sites. Examples of such service providers include vendors and suppliers that provide us with technology, services, and/or content for sending e-mail, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, processing payments (including credit card payments), and providing customer service. Access to your Personal Information by these service providers is limited to the information reasonably necessary to perform its limited function. These service providers have an obligation under their contracts with us to keep your Personal Information confidential.

Aggregated, Anonymous Information. We may share aggregated Anonymous Information about you with third parties. Aggregated information is your Anonymous Information that is combined with the Anonymous Information of other users and does not allow you to be identified or contacted. Depending on the circumstances, we may or may not charge third parties for this aggregated information, or limit the third parties’ use of the aggregated information.

Contests, sweepstakes, and polls. Some or all of the information collected during a contest or sweepstakes may be disclosed publicly. It may also be shared with other third parties as disclosed at the time of collection or in the promotion rules. These third parties may include a provider of prizes in order to update you of your status of your prize or other fulfillment needs, or a co-sponsor who may use your Personal Information to administer the promotion or for marketing purposes, but only in conformance with their privacy policy as made available to you at the time of collection. If data will be disclosed or shared in this manner, we will include a notice at the time of collection of such information.

Sponsors – and other ways that you approve at the time of collection. We may collect Personal Information about you and share it with third parties to the extent that you give us permission at the time of collection. For example, we sometimes gather Personal Information on behalf of a sponsor in association with a promotion. In such a case, we will provide you clear notice at the time of collection that the information is being collected on the sponsor’s behalf and link to the sponsor’s privacy policy. The sponsor will be contractually obligated to comply with their privacy policy.

Within our Company; Changes to our Company. We may share all or some of your Personal Information with any of our subsidiaries, joint ventures, or other companies under common control, in which case we will require them to honor this Policy. Additionally, in the event we go through a business transition such as a merger, acquisition by another company, or sale of all or a portion of our assets, your Personal Information may be among the assets transferred. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur and are permitted by this Policy, and that any entity that acquires us, is merged with us or that acquires our assets may continue to process your Personal Information as set forth in this Policy.

Children’s Information

The Sites are not directed or intended for children under 13 years of age. We do not knowingly collect Personal Information from individuals under 13 years of age. If you are under 13 years of age, you should not register or provide Personal Information on the Sites. If we later obtain actual knowledge that a user is under 13 years of age, we will take steps to remove that user’s Personal Information from our systems. If you are the parent or guardian of a child whom you believe has disclosed Personal Information to us, please contact us at privacy@readnomad.com so that we may delete and remove such child’s information from our systems.

Updating and Control of Your Personal Information

We offer you choices regarding the collection, use, and sharing of your Personal Information. When you receive promotional communications from us you will have the opportunity to “opt out” by following the unsubscribe instructions provided in the promotional e-mail or newsletter you receive or by editing your preference to receive these communications within the “Manage My E-mail” or similar feature on the individual Sites when you are logged in as a registered user. Please note that despite your indicated e-mail preferences, we may send you administrative e-mails regarding the Site and the Services, including, for example, administrative confirmations and notices of updates to our Policy if we choose to provide such notices to you in this manner.

If your Personal Information changes or if you no longer desire to use or access one of the Sites or Services, we encourage you to correct, update, or remove the Personal Information from your profile. This can be done at the “Profile” section on each of the Sites. Keep in mind, however, that even if you delete information from your profile, we may retain your Personal Information in conformance with our data retention policy and there may be residual Personal Information that remains within our databases, access logs, and other records. In addition, we are not responsible for updating or removing your Personal Information contained in the lists or databases of third parties who have been provided information as permitted by this Policy.

Third-Party Links

The Sites may link to websites operated by third parties that we do not control. We do not monitor, control, or endorse the information collection or privacy practices of any third parties. We strongly encourage you to become familiar with the privacy practices of every website you visit and to contact them if you have any questions about their respective privacy policies and practices. This Policy applies solely to information collected by us through the Sites or Services and does not apply to these third-party websites. The ability to access information of third parties from the Sites or Services, or links to other websites or locations, is for your convenience only and does not signify our endorsement of such third parties, their products, services, websites, locations, or their content.
