I. Personally-Identifiable Information and Non-Personally Identifiable Information.
Gladwell and Company (also referred to herein as (“Author Alliance") may collect two different types of information, Personally Identifiable Information (“PII”) and Non-Personally Identifiable Information (“Non-PII”). PII is information that identifies you as an individual – for example, your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, credit card information, billing address and shipping information. Non-PII is aggregated information, demographic information, IP addresses, user behavior data from web interaction metrics tools and other information that does not reveal your specific identity. PII and Non-PII may be collected anytime you access or use a Author Alliance website. PII and Non-PII may also be collected by Author Alliance during in-person discussions, telephone conversations, and electronic or other written communications. Author Alliance also collects information via cookies; blocking cookies may render you unable to access certain Author Alliance products, services, or websites.
Author Alliance uses PII to respond to your inquiries, provide you with services you have requested, keep you informed of services Author Alliance thinks may be of interest to you, and otherwise personalize your experience with Author Alliance, and other reasons. Author Alliance does not sell or lease PII about you to others. Author Alliance may share PII with Author Alliance affiliates and third parties contracting with Author Alliance to provide services to you, e.g., financial institutions. Author Alliance may also share PII when required by law, or when you have expressly requested Author Alliance to do so. Author Alliance reserves the right to disclose and use your PII if Author Alliance believes it is necessary to: (a) respond to legal process, e.g., a subpoena; (b) respond to a law enforcement agency’s request; (c) enforce the Terms; or (d) protect the rights, privacy, safety, property, or operations of Author Alliance or third parties;
Because Non-PII does not personally identify You, Author Alliance reserves the right to use and disclose to third parties Non-PII for any purpose.
Author Alliance reserves the right to change this privacy notice, which changes will become effective upon posting of the revised notice https://www.AuthorAlliance.co/privacy, or upon emailing of the changes to You at the email address You provided to Author Alliance, or as required by law.
