Privacy Policies and Terms
Visitors to our Website
Links to other sites: The Press website occasionally provides links to third-party websites. We encourage you to review the privacy statements of websites you choose to visit from our site so that you understand how those websites collect, use, and share your information. The Press is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on websites outside our own website.
If you use our secure online server to order a book, journal, or other product from us, we require a minimal amount of information needed to process the order, which may include your name, mailing address, telephone number, credit card number, and email address. This information is never stored in clear text on the server, but is encrypted and forwarded immediately to our distributor and stored safely in their secure databases. This information is retained indefinitely unless you request that we delete it.
Use of Personal Information
We may use the information you provide to us when ordering a Press product to contact you about problems with your order or account or to alert you that your subscription requires renewing.
Unless you instruct us otherwise, we may use your name, mailing address, and email address (but not your telephone number) to tell you about new University of Pittsburgh Press products and services. From time to time, you may receive print catalogs or other promotional materials from us that describe books or journals in areas that you may be interested in, or we may occasionally send you email announcing sales, special offers, or announcements. Such email promotions are infrequent. All promotional emails include easy instructions for opting out of future emails.
Disclosure of Information
Except as described in this policy statement, the information we collect about you and your use of our website will not be made available to any entity outside of the Press and its publishing partners.
We may disclose your information to third parties that provide support to our operations; if such disclosure is required by law, court order, or subpoena; or with your consent. We may also disclose information in a de-identified form for any purpose. If suspected misuse of our website originates from an IP address registered to an institution, then web server log information from that IP address may be shared with the institution as part of the investigation of the suspected misuse.
Your Rights/Remedies of Concern
Various jurisdictions grant individuals rights regarding their data, including: (i) the right to request access to your information held by us; (ii) the right to have inaccurate or incomplete personal data rectified; (iii) the right to erasure of your information, provided there is no legitimate reason for us to continue to process or retain the information; (iv) the right to restrict processing of your information in specific situations; (v) the right to request provision of some elements of your information (vi) the right to object to processing of your information, including to send you communications that may be considered direct-marketing materials; (vii) the right to object to automated decision-making and profiling, where applicable. All requests to exercise any of these rights should be made to us at the contact information below.
While we encourage you to bring your concerns to us in the first instance, in certain jurisdictions, you may also have the right to submit a complaint to the jurisdiction’s supervisory authority for data protection matters.
