Personal Information P&S Collects
We may collect personal information through our Services, including without limitation:
- when you provide us with your personal information such as by sending an email to us or signing up to receive updates from Paper and Sage;
- when you subscribe to one of our email lists, submit our contact form, or Custom Cover Questionnaire;
- when you make a purchase from our website;
- when you provide personal information in connection with your participation in any of the forums or commenting features we make available through our Services.
Non Personal Browsing and Site Usage Information
When you use the Services, our servers (which may be hosted by a third party service provider) may collect information indirectly and automatically (through, for example, the use of your “IP address”) about your activities while visiting the Websites and information about the browser you are using. In addition, whenever you log into our Design Approval System, our servers (which, again, may be hosted by a third party service provider) keep a log of the websites you visit and when you visit them.
We do not intentionally link browsing information or information from our server logs to the personal information you submit to us. We use this information for internal purposes, such as to help understand how the Services are being used, to improve our Services, and for systems administration purposes. P&S also uses a third party analytics providers (such as Google Analytics and WordPress Jetpack) to help us collect and analyze non personal browsing information through operation of our Services for those same purposes. For information about how Google uses this data visit: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/
When we send emails, we may track behavior such as who opened the emails and who clicked the links. To do this, we include single pixel gifs, also called web beacons, in emails we send. Web beacons allow us to collect information about when you open the email, your IP address, your browser or email client type, and other similar details.
What P&S Does with Personal Information
Emails and Newsletters. We use the personal information you provide to us when you send us emails or sign up to receive updates from Paper and Sage in order to respond to your request – for example, to reply to your email, update you on the progress of your order or project, or to send you communications about Paper and Sage’s products and services.
Comments. When you leave comments on our Websites we use the name and email address provided to associate your name with your respective comments. We encourage you to use an alias or nickname if you are not comfortable providing your legal name. The name or nickname you provide may be used to attribute you in connection with any content you submit to any Service. Additionally, some users will choose to associate their comments with a WordPress.com or Gravatar account. If so, their respective privacy policies apply.
Design Approval System. Most purchases from Paper and Sage will require you to interact with a graphic designer through our design approval system. In this case, we will use your email address to create a user account on your behalf.
Disclosures of Personal Information
In general, it is not Paper and Sage’s practice to disclose personal information to third parties. We may share your personal information in two instances:
First, Paper and Sage may share personal information with our contractors and service providers in order to maintain, enhance, or add to the functionality of the Services.
If Paper and Sage is required to provide a third party with your personal information (whether by subpoena or otherwise), then provided we have collected and retained an email address for you, Paper and Sage will use reasonable means to notify you promptly of that event, unless prohibited by law or P&S is otherwise advised not to notify you on the advice of legal counsel.
Security of Personal Information Collected via the Services
Paper and Sage has implemented reasonable measures to protect against unauthorized access to and unlawful interception or processing of personal information that Paper and Sage stores and controls. However, no website can fully eliminate security risks. Third parties may circumvent our security measures to unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications. We will post a reasonably prominent notice to the Websites if any such security breach occurs.
