We collect this information so that you may obtain access to members-only portions of our website and/or to receive Eye On Books products and services. We do not sell or rent personal information to other organizations. Where necessary, our site collects credit card information for the purpose of billing the user for requested services. Information collected through Eye On Books may be shared with third parties that provide services on behalf of the site, such as credit card processors. Third parties may only use the data for the purpose for which it was provided.
If a user’s personally identifiable information changes (such as zip code, phone, email or postal address), or if a user no longer desires our service, we provide a way to correct, update or delete/deactivate users’ personally identifiable information. This can usually be done by emailing email@example.com.
AGGREGATE INFORMATION COLLECTION & USAGE: We may collect information from visitors to our website and users of our services in an aggregate, anonymous form, which means that the information will not contain nor be linked to any personal information.
Eye On Books uses this information to measure the use of our website and to improve its content. Aggregate information may also be compiled based upon personal information. When this information is shared with a third party, it does not contain any personal information.
CLICKSTREAM: As you use the Internet, a trail of electronic information is left at each web site you visit. This information, which is sometimes referred to as "clickstream data," can be collected and stored by a web site's server. Clickstream data can tell us the type of computer and browsing software you use and the address of the website from which you linked to Eye On Books. Clear gifs (aka Action Tags) may be used to collect the clickstream data. This technology may also be used within HTML emails for the purpose of determining open rates. We may use clickstream data as a form of aggregate information to anonymously determine how much time visitors spend on each page of our website, how visitors navigate throughout the website and how we may tailor our content to better meet the needs of our visitors. Any collection or use of clickstream data will be anonymous and aggregate, and will not contain any personal information.
CHANGES TO POLICY; OPT-OUT PROCESS: We reserve the right, at our discretion, to change, modify, add, or remove portions from this policy at any time. Your continued use of our website following the posting of any changes to this policy means you accept such changes.
However, if at any time in the future we plan to use personal information in a way that differs from this policy, users will be notified by either 30 days' notice displayed prominently on Eye On Books or by email. We will provide you the opportunity to opt-out of such differing uses.

We have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard the information we collect. Only those employees who need access to your information in order to perform their duties are allowed access to your personal information.
