Information We Collect
4. Your Information
Understanding Personally Identifying Information (PII): Information You Provide to Us
Information from Your Use of the Web Site
Ascension Press’ web servers may automatically log information your browser sends us. For example, we may receive and collect the name of the domain and host from which you access the Internet, your IP address, the date and time you access the Web Site, the browser used, and the IP address of the website from which you linked directly to the Web Site. When a user performs a search within the Web Site, Ascension Press may record information identifying the user or linking the user to the search performed and recording information related to the search request. We use this information to administer the Web Site, and we analyze (and may engage third parties to analyze) this information to improve and enhance the Web Site by expanding its features, functionality, and tailoring to fit our users’ needs and preferences.
Cookies and Tracking
Like many websites, we collect certain information through the use of “cookies,” which are small text files saved by your browser when you access our Web Site. We (and our third-party analytics providers and ad providers, such as Google Analytics and AdRoll, respectively) may use both session cookies (temporary cookie files which are erased when you close your browser) and persistent cookies (cookies remaining on your hard drive until you erase them or they expire) to identify you logged into the Web Site and to tell us how and when you interact with our Web Site. The information collected may also be used by third parties (such as AdRoll) to target advertising on other sites based on your online activity. Cookies can also be used to monitor aggregate usage and web traffic routing on our Web Site and to customize and improve it. Although most browsers automatically accept cookies, you can change your browser options to stop automatically accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting cookies. Please note, however, if you do not accept cookies, you may not be able to access all portions or features of the Web Site.
We and/or our third-party tracking utility company may employ software technology called “clear GIFs” (also known as “web beacons), helping us better manage content on our Web Site by informing us which content is relevant. These web beacons (or other tracking technology) may be included in or associated with emails or other communications you receive from us in order to help us provide you with relevant content and services. We may tie information gathered by web beacons or other tracking technology to Personally Identifying Information.
5. Use and Disclosure of Your Personal Information to Third Parties
6. Opting Out
Upon your request via postal mail, email (to [email protected]), or telephone, we will provide you with a summary of any PII retained by Ascension Press voluntarily provided by you to us through the Web Site. You may modify, correct, change, or update your PII by contacting us via postal mail, email, or telephone at the addresses or numbers below. This provision does not apply to information collected through web beacons or other tracking technology or any third-party analytics providers.
7. Security Measures
The security of the information you provide to us is our top priority. We follow the latest and most widely accepted industry standards to protect the Personally Identifying Information submitted to us. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100 percent secure. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. If a security breach causes an unauthorized intrusion into our system that materially affects you, then Ascension Press will notify you as soon as possible and later report the action we took in response.
