LYRASIS (“Company” or “We”) respects your privacy and is committed to protecting it through our compliance with this policy. This policy describes:
The types of information we may collect or that you may provide when you download, install, register with, access, or use The Palace Project mobile application (the “App”).
Our practices for collecting, using, maintaining, protecting, and disclosing that information.
This policy applies only to information we collect in this App and in email, text, and other electronic communications sent through or in connection with this App.
This policy DOES NOT apply to information that:
We collect offline or on any other Company apps or websites, including websites you may access through this App.
You provide to or is collected by any third party.
Our websites and apps, and these other third parties have their own privacy policies, which we encourage you to read before providing information on or through them.
The App is not intended for children under 13 years of age, and we do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13. If we learn we have collected or received personal information from a child under 13 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information.
We collect information from and about users of our App:
Directly from you when you provide it to us.
Automatically when you use the App.
When you download, register with, or use this App, we may ask you provide information:
By which you may be personally identified, such as name, postal address, email address, or any other identifier by which you may be contacted online or offline (“personal information”), solely to the extent that you opt-in for a virtual library card.
That is about you but individually does not identify you, such as about your physical location, if location services are enabled on your device.
This information includes:
Information that you provide by filling in forms in the App, such as your library barcode and PIN. This includes information provided at the time of registering to use the App. We may also ask you for information when you report a problem with the App.
Records and copies of your correspondence (including your email address), if you contact us.
When you download, access, and use the App, it may use technology to automatically collect:
Usage Details. When you access and use the App, we may automatically collect certain details of your access to and use of the App, including traffic data, location data, logs, and other communication data and the resources that you access and use on or through the App, on a purely aggregated basis and not specific to you.
Device Information. We may collect information about your mobile device and internet connection, including the device’s unique device identifier, IP address, operating system, browser type, and mobile network information.
Location Information. This App collects real-time information about the location of your device, solely to the extent that you allow such location services and only once to determine your local libraries.
If you do not want us to collect this information do not download the App or delete it from your device.
We use information that we collect about you or that you provide to us, including any personal information, to:
Provide you with the App and its contents, and any other information, products or services that you request from us.
Fulfill any other purpose for which you provide it.
Carry out our obligations and enforce our rights arising from any contracts entered into between you and us.
Notify you when App updates are available, and of changes to any products or services we offer or provide though it.
The usage information we collect helps us to improve our App and to deliver a better and more personalized experience by enabling us to:
Estimate our audience size and usage patterns.
Store information about your preferences, allowing us to customize our App according to your individual interests.
Speed up your searches.
We use location information we collect to provide you location-relevant services via our App.
We may disclose aggregated information about our users, and information that does not identify any individual or device, without restriction.
In addition, we may disclose personal information that we collect or you provide solely to the extent that you opt-in for a virtual library card:
To our subsidiaries and affiliates.
To contractors, service providers, and other third parties we use to support our company or our App.
To a buyer or other successor in the event of a merger, divestiture, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution, or other sale or transfer of some or all of LYRASIS’ assets, whether as a going concern or as part of bankruptcy, liquidation, or similar proceeding, in which personal information held by LYRASIS about our App users is among the assets transferred.
To fulfill the purpose for which you provide it.
For any other purpose disclosed by us when you provide the information.
With your consent.
To comply with any court order, law, or legal process, including to respond to any government or regulatory request.
To enforce our rights arising from any contracts entered into between you and us, including the App EULA.
If we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to protect the rights, property, or safety of LYRASIS, our customers or others.
We strive to provide you with choices regarding the personal information you provide to us. This section describes mechanisms we provide for you to control certain uses and disclosures of over your information.
Location Information. You can choose whether or not to allow the App to collect and use real-time information about your device’s location through the device’s privacy settings. If you block the use of location information, some parts of the App may become inaccessible or not function properly.
You may also send us an email at email@example.com to request access to, correct, or delete any personal information that you have provided to us. We cannot delete your personal information except by also deleting your user account. We may not accommodate a request to change information if we believe the change would violate any law or legal requirement or cause the information to be incorrect.
If you are a California resident, California law may provide you with additional rights regarding our use of your personal information.
California’s “Shine the Light” law (Civil Code Section § 1798.83) permits users of our App that are California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have implemented measures designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration, and disclosure.
The safety and security of your information also depends on you. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password for access to certain parts of our App, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet and mobile platforms is not completely secure. Although we do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information transmitted through our App. Any transmission of personal information is at your own risk. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures we provide.
