The Mission Statement of Plough Publishing House

1. What information does this privacy policy cover?

This privacy policy applies only to personally identifiable information collected on the websites where this privacy policy is posted. This privacy policy applies to use and sharing of personally identifiable information collected on the websites where this privacy policy is posted and does not apply to any other information collected by The Plough Publishing House through any other means. This privacy policy applies to use and sharing of personally identifiable information collected on and after the date that this privacy policy is posted. When this privacy policy uses the term "personally identifiable information," we mean information that identifies a particular individual, such as the individual's name, postal address, e-mail address, and telephone number. Personally identifiable information is sometimes referred to in this privacy policy as "personal information." Finally, the terms of this privacy policy are subject to all applicable laws.

2. What types of personally identifiable information do we collect about our visitors/customers?

We collect several types of personally identifiable information about our visitors/customers:

Information You Provide to Us

Typically, this information includes your name, postal address, e-mail address and telephone number. If you purchase products from us we will also collect your credit card information, the type of product ordered or purchases, and the date of the order or purchase.

Information Collected Through Technology

We collect information through technology to make our site more interesting and useful to you. For instance, when you visit our site, we collect your IP address. An IP address is often associated with the portal through which you enter the Internet, like your ISP (Internet Service Provider) or your company. Standing alone, your IP address is not personally identifiable information. At times we also use IP addresses to collect information regarding the frequency with which our visitors/customers visit various parts of our site.

Our website also uses "cookies." Cookies are pieces of information that a website sends to your computer while you are viewing the website. We use cookies for a variety of purposes. For instance, when you return to our site after logging in, cookies provide information to the site so that the site will remember who you are. You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You do this through your browser (like Safari or Internet Explorer) settings. Each browser is a little different, so look at your browser Help menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookies. If you turn cookies off, you won't have access to many features that make your Web experience smoother, like the features mentioned above, and some of our services will not function properly.

We also use technical methods to analyze the traffic patterns on our Website, such as the frequency with which our users visit various parts of our Website, length of visits, download errors and page interaction information (such as scrolling, clicks, and mouse-overs).

3. Why do we collect this information?

We collect the personally identifiable information in order to serve the needs of our visitors and customers. If you are purchasing a product from us and supply us with credit card information, we need to know who you are in order to verify the credit card information you have sent us. The non-personal information that we collect from you is used for internal purposes to make your experience with our site more enjoyable.

4. How is your information protected?

We use the latest in encryption technology to ensure that any sensitive information that is sent to you by us via the Internet is protected from unauthorized interception. From time to time, we review our security procedures in order to consider appropriate new technology and methods. Please be aware though that, despite our best efforts, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable.

5. What choices do you have about the collection, use, and sharing of certain information collected from you?

With regard to personal information that you have provided under this privacy policy, there are several opt-out choices available to you. These opt-out choices are the means by which you give us, or decline to give us, your consent to use your personal information for the purposes covered by these opt-out choices.

Disabling Cookies: You have the option of disabling your computer's ability to accept or transmit cookies. This will prevent us from gathering certain nonpersonally identifiable information from your computer.

Third Parties: Plough will NOT share your personal information with third parties.

E-mails from Plough: You may choose to opt-out of receiving e-mail notification of any new products, promotional materials or service that we are offering.
