Privacy

This privacy policy for laughinggrapepublishing.com, also known as “this site” or “we” or “us”, describes how we use and protect any information that you give this publishing site. We are committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected. If you provide us with personal information, you can be assured that it will only be used in accordance with this privacy statement.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, this site collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. The purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how this site’s visitors use this website. From time to time, this site may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate.

This site also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. We do not use IP addresses to identify visitors, and we do not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to this site choose to interact with this site in a way that requires the gathering of personally-identifying information. For example, when you order a book/books, we do receive the name you provide, plus address, plus your email. In each case, this site collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with this site. We do not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described in order to send a book/books. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from ordering/receiving a book/books.

All of the information that is collected will be handled in accordance with GDPR legislation.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

This site discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of project administrators, employees, contractors, or affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on the site or to provide services available through the site, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using this site, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.

The site will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than as described above, this site discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, if you give permission to have your information shared, or this site believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of this site, third parties, or the public at large.

If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of the contact form), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. This site takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

We will not sell or lease your personal information to third parties unless we have your permission or are required by law to do so.
