Like many websites, we may use "cookies" to collect information. A cookie is a small data file that we transfer to your computer's hard disk for record-keeping purposes. We may use both persistent cookies that remain on your computer or similar device (such as to save your registration ID for future logins to the Site and to track your compliance with any applicable policies) and session ID cookies, which expire at the end of your browser session (for example, to enable certain features of the Website, to better understand how BookGarage users interact with the Website and to monitor aggregate usage and web traffic routing on the Website). You may be able to instruct your browser, by changing its options, to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the websites you visit. If you do not accept cookies, however, you may not be able to use all functionality of the Website.
Information about our Members is an important part of our business, but we are not in the business of selling it to others. We may employ third-party companies to perform functions on our behalf – examples include sending e-mail, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, providing search results and links, and providing customer service – and they may have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes. We may release account and other personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law; enforce or apply our Terms of Service and other agreements; or protect the rights or property of BookGarage, or others.
You have the right to request information, free of charge, as to whether BookGarage saves personal data about you and if so, what data.
