Circinus Business Press Privacy Policy


Summary
Circinus Business Press takes your online privacy seriously. You may visit this site anonymously as often as you like without providing any personally identifying information (such as your name, address or e-mail address). We do not collect personally identifying information from you except when you specifically provide it, and we protect the information we receive. We do not share your information with third parties, except as required to authenticate billing when you use a credit card to pay for an item.

The Information You Provide
As you explore our website, you will come across places in which we ask you to provide us with your email address. We seek only your e-mail address so that we can send you the specific information that you request. If you choose to purchase an item on our website, we will need to collect additional information for billing and shipping, such as your full name, home address and credit card information. All of these activities are purely voluntary. If you decide to participate, we will not use your name or e-mail address for any purpose other than as stated, and will not sell or rent your name or address to third parties not affiliated with Circinus Business Press. If you purchase an item from our website we may share your credit card information with an independent third party service whose sole function is to verify the credit card information you provide.

At other places in this site we ask for your feedback, opinion or suggestions, and provide you with a link for e-mailing us your response. If you send your e-mail to us, it will include your e-mail address in the "From" line. Again, we promise to use the e-mail address we receive in this manner only for the purpose of responding to your questions or suggestions, and will not approach you with unsolicited offers or provide your e-mail address to anyone else.

Removing Your E-mail Address
If you have previously provided us with your e-mail address and later decide that you do not want us to have it, please follow the instructions to unsubscribe contained at the end of your e-mail message from us. We will try to accommodate your request, but cannot promise that it will happen immediately.

Cookies
Cookies are electronic tags that most websites place on your computer in the process of sending your computer a file, such as a web page. We use them in a limited fashion as well. In essence, a cookie is a unique bit of computer code that is placed on your computer the first time you visit our site. It tells us simply when a computer that has previously visited our site returns, and it identifies your computer's browser and operating system to help us make the best connection. In no event does the cookie we place on your computer tell us anything about your visits to other websites or your use of the internet in any other way.

If you would prefer not to receive any cookies, most browsers can be set to refuse cookies or to alert you when one is being sent. It is possible, however, that some portions of this site may not function properly if the cookies are disabled.

Links to Other Sites
Our site contains links to other sites that are not under our control, even though they may use the Circinus Business Press name or logo on their site through an agreement with us. Such other sites do not necessarily follow our privacy policies, and may place their own cookies on your computer. This practice is standard on the web, and we do not control cookies placed on your computer by third parties whose links appear on our site.

Security of Private Information
We would like to be able to tell you that the information you provide us is absolutely safe. Unfortunately, several well-publicized instances of computer security breaches make it impossible for anyone to be so confident. However, we take reasonable steps to protect the information you provide us from theft, alteration or unauthorized inspection.

If you have any concerns regarding privacy issues, please contact us at comments@scoopbooks.com or at Circinus Business Press, 225 W. Plaza Street, Suite 201, Solana Beach, California 92075. Thank you for your interest.
