Here are the types of personal information we collect:

    • identifying information such as your name, address, and phone numbers;

You can choose not to provide certain information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of our Services.

  • Automatic Information: We automatically collect and store certain types of information about your use of One Read Services, including information about your interaction with content and services available through the One Read Services. Like many websites, we obtain certain types of information when your web browser or device accesses One Read and other content served by or on behalf of One Read on other websites. 
  • Information from Other Sources: We might receive information about you from other sources, such as updated delivery and address information from our bookstore partners, which we use to fulfill your deliveries.

For What Purposes Does One Read Use Your Personal Information?

We use your personal information to operate, provide, develop, and improve the products and services that we offer our customers. These purposes include:

  • Purchase and delivery of products and services. We use your personal information to deliver products and services, process payments, and communicate with you about orders, products and services, and promotional offers.
  • Provide, troubleshoot, and improve One Read Services. We use your personal information to provide functionality, analyze performance, fix errors, and improve the usability and effectiveness of the One Read Services.
  • Recommendations and personalization. We use your personal information to recommend features, products, and services that might be of interest to you, identify your preferences, and personalize your experience with One Read.
  • Comply with legal obligations. In certain cases, we collect and use your personal information to comply with laws. For instance, we collect  information regarding place of establishment and bank account information from BookPins for identity verification and other purposes.
  • Communicate with you. We use your personal information to communicate with you in relation to One Read Services via different channels (e.g., by phone, e-mail, chat).
  • Advertising. We use your personal information to display interest-based ads for features, products, and services that might be of interest to you. We do not use information that personally identifies you to display interest-based ads. 
  • Fraud Prevention and Credit Risks. We use personal information to prevent and detect fraud and abuse in order to protect the security of our customers, One Read, and others. 

Does One Read Share Your Personal Information?

Information about our customers is an important part of our business, and we are not in the business of selling our customers’ personal information to others. We share customers’ personal information only as described below and with partners that either are subject to this Privacy Notice or follow practices at least as protective as those described in this Privacy Notice.

  • Third-Party Service Providers: We work with other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include fulfilling orders for products or services, delivering packages, sending postal mail and e-mail, removing repetitive information from customer lists, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, providing search results and links (including paid listings and links), processing payments and transmitting content. These third-party service providers have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.
  • Business Transfers: As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy other businesses or services. In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets but remains subject to the promises made in any pre-existing Privacy Policy (unless, of course, the customer consents otherwise). Also, in the unlikely event that One Read or substantially all of its assets are acquired, customer information will of course be one of the transferred assets.
  • Protection of One Read and Others: We release account and other personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law; enforce or apply our Terms and Conditions and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of One Read, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection.

Other than as set out above, you will receive notice when personal information about you might be shared with third parties, and you will have an opportunity to choose not to share the information.

How Secure Is Information About Me?

We design our systems with your security and privacy in mind.

  • We work to protect the security of your personal information during transmission by using encryption protocols and software.
  • We maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards in connection with the collection, storage, and disclosure of personal customer information. Our security procedures mean that we may occasionally request proof of identity before we disclose personal information to you.
  • It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computers, devices, and applications. Be sure to logout when finished using a shared device.

What About Advertising?

  • Third-Party Advertisers and Links to Other Websites: One Read Services may include third-party advertising and links to other websites and apps. Third-party advertising partners may collect information about you when you interact with their content, advertising, and services.
