The Service may use “cookies” and other technologies such as pixel tags, locally shared objects, clear GIFs and web beacons. OPEN READING treats information collected by cookies and similar technologies as non-personal data.
Cookies: A “cookie” is a small bit of record-keeping information that websites often store on a user’s computer. OPEN READING’s cookies do not include personal data and are typically used to quickly identify a User’s device and to “remember” the User. Users can disable cookies or set their browsers to alert them when cookies are being sent to their device; however, disabling cookies may affect their ability to use the Service.
Web Beacons and pixel tags: A “web beacon” or a “pixel tag” is an electronic image that allows OPEN READING to count Users who have visited certain pages or viewed certain advertisements. Web beacons, like cookies, do not include personal data. E-mails and other electronic communications OPEN READING sends to a User may contain pixel tags that enable OPEN READING to track a User’s usage of the communication, including whether the communication was opened and/or what links were followed, if any.
OPEN READING may disclose a User’s personal data to third parties as required by law enforcement or other government officials in connection with an investigation of fraud, intellectual property infringements, or other activity that is illegal or may expose a User or OPEN READING to legal liability. OPEN READING may also disclose a User’s personal data to third parties when OPEN READING has a reason to believe that a disclosure is necessary to address potential or actual injury or interference with OPEN READING’s rights, property, operations, Users or others who may be harmed or may suffer loss or damage, or OPEN READING believes that such disclosure is necessary to protect OPEN READING’s rights, combat fraud and/or comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on OPEN READING. To the extent permitted by applicable law, OPEN READING will make reasonable efforts to notify affected Users of such disclosure through OPEN READING’s website or in another reasonable manner.
When a parent, educator, or volunteer discloses data about him or herself in the course of contributing user-generated content or participating in support forums, community blogs or the like, the information disclosed is public information, and there is no expectation of privacy or confidentiality. OPEN READING is not responsible for any personal data a User makes public in any of these forums.
7. Further Information: Users that wish to opt out from receiving communications (such as any newsletters or offers) from OPEN READING should contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
OPEN READING makes good-faith efforts to enable Users to review, update or correct any personal data in OPEN READING’s possession. Users should contact OPEN READING at email@example.com. OPEN READING will need sufficient information from the User to establish the User’s identity, verify the User’s access, and assist in handling the User’s request. Even if personal data is changed or deleted according to a User request, OPEN READING may still retain some User personal data to resolve disputes, enforce OPEN READING user agreement(s), and comply with technical and legal requirements and constraints related to the integrity, security and operation of OPEN READING Services.
