Our Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy was last updated on June 1, 2016.

 

Whisper Reads (“we”, “us”, or “our”) is founded on the principle of helping readers discover time-limited deals on books via digital newsletter. This page informs you of our policies regarding the collection, usage and disclosure of personal information received from users on https://www.whisperreads.com (the "Site") and its online services (“Services”). Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with our privacy practices.

 

Collection and Use of Personal Information

 

Personal information is data that can be used to identify or contact a single person.

 

When you sign up for our newsletter (“Service”) or contact us, we may collect information such as your email address and your book genre preferences for the sole purpose of this website. Although we do not explicitly collect your first or/and last name, it may be indirectly collected as being part of your email address.

 

The personal information we collect allows us to achieve the following: (i) keep you updated on time-limited deals of your preferred genres via our newsletter (you can opt out of our newsletter at any time); (ii) send you a welcome or unsubscribe email; (iii) send you a promotion confirmation/rejection/question email (authors only); and (iv) respond to your contact inquires.

 

We may also use your personal information to send important notices, such as communications of changes to our terms, conditions, and policies. Because this information is important to your interaction with Whisper Reads, you may not opt out of receiving it during your membership.

 

Collection and Use of Non-Personal Information

 

We may in addition collect data in a form that does not, on its own, permit identification of any specific individual. Such information includes your IP address, operating system, browser name, pages visited and the timestamps of these visits. Whisper Reads uses this data to analyze user location and the technology used in order to better serve your needs as consumer of our services.

 

In case non-personal information is combined with personal information, the resulting information will be treated as personal information for as long as it remains combined.

 

Disclosure to Third Parties

 

We will not share or disclose your personal information with any third parties except in the following cases: (i) if necessary − by law, legal process, litigation, and/or requests from public and governmental authorities within or outside your country of residence; (ii) if we determine that for purposes of national security, law enforcement, or other issues of public importance, disclosure is necessary or appropriate; (iii) if we determine that disclosure is reasonably necessary to enforce our terms and conditions or protect our operations or users; (iv) in the event of a reorganization, merger, or sale.

 

Protection of Personal Information

 

We take the security of your personal information very seriously. Whisper Reads protects your personal identifying information during transit and storage by using encryption. However, please be aware that, no security system can prevent against all potential security breaches, and we therefore cannot guarantee absolute security of your personal information.

 

Access to Your Personal Information

 

You can help ensure that your preferences are up to date by following the preferences link in our emails. Modification of personal information is limited to your genre preferences. If you would like to use another email address simply unsubscribe and sign up again.

 

Third-Party Sites and Services

 

Our website and services may contain links to third-party websites, products, and services. Information collected by third parties is governed by their privacy practices. We encourage you to learn about the privacy practices of those third parties.

 

International Users

 

All the information you provide may be transferred or accessed by entities around the world as described in our Privacy Policy. Whisper Reads abides by the “safe harbor” frameworks set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of personal information collected by organizations in the European Economic Area and Switzerland.
