Welcome to Libboo! Thanks for using our website and our services (the "Website"). This Website is operated by Libboo, Inc. ("Libboo," "we," "us," etc.) and provides information about our company and facilitates discovery and promotion of books and authors (the "Libboo Services") to visitors to our Website ("you", "your"). This Privacy Policy describes how we treat your personally identifiable data ("Personal Data") and other information that we collect from visitors to the Website. Wherever Libboo collects Personal Data, we make an effort to provide a link to this Privacy Policy.

Please email help@libboo.com if you have any questions about Libboo's Privacy Policy or how this Website collects information.

Personal Data Collected:

When you use the Website, we may collect Personal Data and other information from you. For example, we collect Personal Data from you when you voluntarily provide such information, such as when you contact us with inquiries, respond to one of our surveys, register for access to the Libboo Services, or use the Libboo Services. By voluntarily providing us with your Personal Data, you are agreeing to let us use it as we describe in this Privacy Policy. If you provide Personal Data to this Website, then you acknowledge and agree that such Personal Data may be transferred to the offices and servers of Libboo and our authorized third parties located in the United States.

Other Information Collected:

When you use the Website, we also receive and store certain personally non-identifiable information. This information cannot presently be used to specifically identify you. Libboo may store such information itself or in databases operated by our authorized third parties. This Website may use that information together with other information to track, for example, the total number of visitors to the Website, the number of visitors to each page on the Website, and the domain names of our visitors' Internet service providers.

Our Use of Personal Data and Other Information:

Libboo uses your Personal Data as discussed in this Privacy Policy. If you provide Personal Data for a certain reason, then we may use the Personal Data for that reason. For example, if you contact us by email, we will use the Personal Data you provide to respond to your email. Also, if you provide Personal Data in order to use the Libboo Services, we will use your Personal Data to provide you with access to and to monitor your use of the Libboo Services.

Libboo and its subsidiaries and affiliates (the "Libboo Companies") may also use your Personal Data and other personally non-identifiable information: to help us improve the content and functionality of the Website; to better understand our users; to improve the Libboo Services; and to tell you about services we believe will be of interest to you. Each communication we send you will contain instructions permitting you to "opt-out" of receiving future communications from us. In addition, if at any time you wish to have your name deleted from our mailing lists, please email us at help@libboo.com.

If Libboo intends to use any Personal Data other than as discussed in this Privacy Policy, you will be informed of such use prior to or at the time at which the Personal Data is collected.

You can use the Website without providing any Personal Data, but you may not be able to use certain Libboo Services. For example, if you do not provide a valid email address, then you will be unable to redeem rewards earned on Libboo by promoting authors or books.

Cookies:

In operating this Website, we may use "cookies," which are pieces of information that our Website gives to your browser when you access the Website. Our cookies help provide additional Website functionality and help us analyze Website usage more accurately. For example, our Website may set a cookie on your browser that allows you to access the Website without entering your password more than once per visit to the Website. We will not use cookies to collect Personal Data except with your permission. Your browser's "help" feature may tell you how to receive notice when you are receiving a new cookie and how to turn cookies off. We recommend that you leave cookies turned on because they allow you to take advantage of some of the features of the Website.

Aggregated Personal Data:

Libboo often studies its customer demographics, interests and behavior based on the Personal Data and other information provided to us. This information may be compiled and analyzed as a whole, and Libboo may share this aggregated data with its affiliates, agents and business partners. This aggregated information does not identify you personally.

Changes to this Privacy Policy:

Libboo may change this Privacy Policy at any time. Please make it a point to review this policy periodically, and especially before you provide any Personal Data to Libboo. Using the Website after the Privacy Policy changes indicates to us that you agree with the Privacy Policy, including those changes.
