WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT?
Bound2Books (https://www.bound2books.co) collects as little information as possible from users looking to post comments on our website. We will typically collect a name (either real or alias), personal website (if added), and email address.
Automatically Collected Information
We may automatically collect certain information about you and the device with which you access the website. For example, when you use the website, we may log your IP address, operating system type, browser type, referring website, pages you viewed, and the dates/times when you accessed the website. We may also collect information about actions you take when using the website, such as links clicked.
Cookies / IP Address Tracking
If you leave a comment on the site, you pay opt-in to saving your name, email address, and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you don’t have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment.
We collect information about visitors who comment on sites that use an anti-spam service. The information collected depends on how the user sets up the anti-spam for the site, but it can typically include the commenter’s IP address, user agent, referrer, and site URL (along with other information directly provided by the commenter such as their name, username, email address, and the comment itself).
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is how we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
With Whom Your Information Is Shared
None of your information will be shared with third parties. Your name and website may be displayed on the site if you post a comment or a message. However, your email address and privacy will always be kept secure.
What Can You Do With Your Own Data?
If you have left comments, or have an account on this site, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
How Information Might Be Used
We may use information collected in the following ways:
- to operate the website
- to maintain the website
- to create your account, identify you as a user of the site, and customise the website for your account
- to send you promotional information – there is also an opt-out for this
- to send you administrative communications such as administrative emails, confirmation emails, technical notices, updates on policies, and/or privacy alerts
- to provide you with user support
- to respond to your comments or inquiries
- to track and measure advertising on the website
- to protect, investigate, and deter against unauthorised or illegal activity
- to send you prizes that have been won through a promotion
Embedded Content from Other Websites
Articles on this site may also include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). The content from the embedded sites behaves in the same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
Third-Party Use of Information
Bound2Books uses WordPress to monitor visits to the site, comments, and likes.
Bound2Books uses affiliate programmes with http://www.booktopia.com.au. This is done by embedding tracking links into the website. If you click on a link for an affiliate partnership, a cookie will be placed on your browser to track any sales for purposes of commissions. This is done with no extra cost to you, as the consumer.
