Privacy Statement

Cappelen Damm Privacy Policy

Website Visitors Like most website operators, Cappelen Damm collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Cappelen Damm’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Cappelen Damm’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Cappelen Damm may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Cappelen Damm also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. However, Cappelen Damm does not use such information to identify its visitors, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information Certain visitors to Cappelen Damm’s websites interact with Cappelen Damm in ways that require Cappelen Damm to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Cappelen Damm gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask authors who are to pay a publication fee to provide certain details. Those who engage in transactions with Cappelen Damm – by paying publication fees, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Cappelen Damm collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Cappelen Damm. Cappelen Damm does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics Cappelen Damm may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Cappelen Damm may monitor the most popular parts of the website. Cappelen Damm may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Cappelen Damm does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information Cappelen Damm discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Cappelen Damm’s behalf or to provide services available at Cappelen Damm’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Cappelen Damm’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.

Cappelen Damm will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Cappelen Damm discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Cappelen Damm believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Cappelen Damm, third parties or the public at large.

If you are a registered user of a Cappelen Damm website and have supplied your email address, Cappelen Damm may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with Cappelen Damm’s products and services.

Cookies A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. Cappelen Damm uses cookies to help Cappelen Damm identify and track visitors, their usage of Cappelen Damm website, and their website access preferences. Cappelen Damm visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using Cappelen Damm’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of Cappelen Damm’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
