The Mary Baker Eddy Library respects and protects the privacy of our users.
What information do we collect from our users and how do we collect it?
First: this site does not collect personally identifiable information about individuals except when specifically and knowingly provided by such individuals, for instance, when submitting an e-mail, registering to receive a mailing, or entering a contest. This site does not rely on cookies to collect or save personal information for your future visits. However, cookies are used to numerically identify your computer and track your movement on the site.
We do collect anonymous, aggregated data for statistical purposes. We may use such information to help determine ways to improve our site and may share this unattributable information with our affiliates.
We do not sell, trade, or rent personally identifiable information to any third parties. As an exception, to protect site visitors and the general welfare, the site will release personal information when necessary in order to comply with the law or regulatory authorities.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding what is done with your information or would like such information deleted from our records, please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Is the information you collect about me secure?
We take precaution to protect our visitors’ information. When you submit personal information via the Web site, your information is protected both online and offline from unauthorized access, improper use or disclosure, unauthorized modification, and unlawful destruction or accidental loss.
When the site asks you to enter sensitive information (such as your credit card number), that information is encrypted and is protected with Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption software.
All of the site’s employees and data processors, who have access to and are associated with the processing of personal information, are obliged to respect the confidentiality of your personal information.
What about children using your site — is their privacy protected?
Yes. In accordance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), this site does not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13 without parental consent. If it is learned that such information has been collected without parental consent, that information will be deleted from the site’s database as quickly as practical or the child’s parent(s) will be contacted to obtain consent for the collection of the information.
And we encourage parents to get involved with their children’s online usage and to be aware of activities in which they are participating. Parental control protections (such as computer hardware, software, or filtering services) are commercially available that may assist you in limiting access to material that is harmful to minors. If you are interested in learning more about these protections, information is available at http://www.myparentalcontrol.com as well as a number of other Internet sites that provide information on this form of protection.
