Data Collection: UC Press may collect personal information during the login process used to access certain portions of our website or to use other functions or features, as noted. We may collect and use personally identifiable information including, but not limited to, the following: name, address, phone number, fax number, email address, employer, title, user ID and password, course information, credit card information, and IP address. Any demographic information we request is generally used in aggregate form for various analyses conducted by UC Press regarding our website and related materials.
Shopping cart/Examination/Desk Copy Request Form: Both our online Shopping Cart and our Examination/Desk Copy Request Form use your email address to track your order. This allows us to automatically send you a receipt and a shipping confirmation electronically, and to contact you in case of a problem or a need for more information to process your order. We reserve the right to send you periodic communications for marketing and promotional purposes. When you order from us, we may ask you at the end of your order if you would like to receive eNews email (see below), but you will not be signed up automatically for eNews. You will need to manually click the indicated link, choose one or more product categories, and then submit a form to get signed up for eNews updates.
eNews: Our eNews email messages are based on an opt-in system, and such notification will be conducted in conformance with University of California and campus policies implementing anti-spam laws (http://www.ucop.edu/irc/policy/antispam.pdf). If you received such a message from us, someone using that address signed up to receive our messages. If you are the owner of this account and did not sign up, you may remove your email address by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of the eNews email. This will permanently remove your address from UC Press’s email distribution list unless you choose to join again later.
If you have any trouble, please contact us and we will resolve your issue as quickly as possible.
Referrals/Recommendations: If you receive an email from us marked “Tell a Friend,” these messages have been sent via a Web-form by an individual who indicated that they were a colleague or friend of yours and wanted you to receive information about something they were browsing on our website, such as a newly published title or newly released website. The name and email address of the individual who has sent you the referral will be included in the email you receive.
Email addresses to which we send Tell-a-Friend messages are NOT saved for our further use. The software we use to send these messages is “double-blind,” meaning that we do not know whom these messages are being sent, and you will not be contacted by us again in the future as a result of receiving or sending one of these referrals or recommendations.
Information Sharing: UC Press will not disclose or share, without your consent, personally identifiable information, except for certain explicit circumstances in which disclosure may be required by law. Your personally identifiable information will not be distributed or sold to third-party organizations.
Data Protection: UC Press is committed to ensuring the security of your information. We use industry-standard processes designed to protect sensitive data.
Updating Personal Information: Questions regarding your options to review, modify or delete previously provided personal information should be directed to us via our contact form.
Links: UC Press’s website may contain links to other websites. Please note that these other websites’ privacy policies may differ from UC Press’s and we encourage you to carefully read those policies, as well. UC Press is not responsible for and does not endorse the contents of any website of another party or for the policies or actions of any such party.
Surveys and Drawings: From time-to-time, UC Press may request information from users via surveys or drawing entries. Participation in these surveys or drawings is completely voluntary, so you can decide whether you want to provide the information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and address), and demographic information (such as postal code, age range). If you give UC Press information in connection with a UC Press drawing, survey, or similar promotion, you agree that we can use that information to manage those activities. Contact information will be used to notify the winners and award prizes, if applicable.
