2. How We Collect and Use Your Personal Data
Information that you provide when you use the website.
As you explore our site you will come across certain activities for which we request some personal information. These activities are outlined and explained below. We will not use your name or email address for any purpose other than as stated:
Age Restrictions. You can only register to use our site if you are over the age of majority in the country in which you reside in. That means that we do not knowingly collect any information about (or market to) children, minors or anyone under the age of majority unless their parent or legal guardian has consented.
If we become aware that a child, minor or anyone under the age of majority has registered with us and provided us with personal information without parental or guardian consent, we will take steps to terminate that person’s account and delete their profile information from our site. If we do delete an account because you violated our age restriction rules, we may retain your email and IP address to ensure that you do not try to get around our rules by creating a new account.
3. Our Legal Basis for Using Your Information
The legal grounds on which we rely to use your information are:
4. Disclosure of Personal Data and Your Rights
We will only disclose your information to:
We may provide you with certain marketing information about services or products where it is necessary to exercise our legitimate interests (to promote our services or products to you and to keep you updated with information that we think may be of interest to you). Please note that we will use your personal information in order to provide certain marketing information for the same or similar services you have previously used.
If you register to be sent information about our authors, books or events we will ask you for some personal information (name and email address) in order to provide you with the service you are requesting. As noted above, you may opt out of receiving any, or all, of these communications from us by following the unsubscribe link or instructions provided in any email we send.
If you wish to opt out of receiving marketing communications from Faber you can do so by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org or clicking the ‘unsubscribe’ button and following the instructions. Please note that if you have signed up for several different lists you will have to remove yourself from each one individually.
6. Links to Other Sites
Our site contains links to other sites that are not under our control, even though they may use the Faber name or logo on their site through an agreement with us. Such other sites do not necessarily follow our privacy policies, and may place their own cookies on your computer. This practice is standard on the Internet. If you follow a link to any of these websites, please note that these websites have their own privacy policies and that we do not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies.
7. Security of Private Information
The transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to prevent unauthorised access.
Please note that where we provide you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of the website, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. Please do not share a password with anyone.
We make no undertaking or warranty about how or where your data may be stored by third parties with whom you may choose to engage via our site and to whom you may supply personal data, or request that we supply personal data.
8. Storage and Retention
Where we collect and store personal data it will be held on servers located in the EEA. We do not transfer your personal data outside of the European Economic Area unless there is a legal mechanism in place which allows this.
We will retain information about you for the period necessary to fulfil the purposes for which the information was collected. After that, we will delete it.
The retention period may vary depending on the purposes for which the information was collected. Where a specific legal or regulatory requirement applies to your information we will retain it for the period of time specified in such legal or regulatory requirement. In the absence of a specific legal or regulatory requirement we will retain your information for six years following the event to which it relates (e.g. the specific sale, the specific competition, etc). We may be required to extend the retention period if the information is required due a complaint or because it is required for litigation. Please also note that we are sometimes legally obliged to retain the information, for example, for tax and accounting purposes. If you are a French national you are entitled to inform us of your wishes as to what happens to your personal data after your death.
9. Parents and Guardians
We encourage you to get involved with your children’s online usage and to be aware of the activities in which they are participating. We also ask you to check back here regularly to see what our latest policies are, particularly those relating to children. You should be aware that if your children voluntarily disclose their names, email addresses or other information, such disclosures may result in unsolicited messages from other parties. We suggest that you discourage your child from providing such information on this site or elsewhere unless you are confident that the information will not be misused.
