PRIVACY POLICY

Updated as of February 12, 2014

Thomson-Shore is committed to protecting your privacy. We created this Privacy Policy in order to demonstrate that commitment and to ensure the confidence of visitors to our Thomson-Shore, Inc. (“Thomson-Shore”) Website, www.thomsonshore.com, www.bessenberg.com, www.Pubishnext.com, www.SeattleBookcompany.com, and https://tsdigitalexpress.com Web sites (the “Sites”).

All information that you voluntarily submit to us will be electronically delivered to our web servers located in the State of Michigan in the United States. By using this site you consent to the transfer of this information and to our use of such data as outlined in this policy.

Types of Information Collected

We collect two types of information:

1. Traffic Data. Our Site automatically recognizes the following non-personally identifiable information when you visit the Site: (i) IP address; (ii) domain server; (iii) type of computer; and (iv) type of web browser (collectively “Traffic Data”). Traffic Data is anonymous information that does not personally identify you, but is helpful for marketing purposes and for improving your experience on the Site. We use this information to examine our traffic in aggregate and to ensure the security of the data and our infrastructure.

2. Personal Information Collected. In order for us to fully serve you and for you to fully access certain services that we offer via the Site, we require you to provide us with information that personally identifies you or your company (“Personal Information”). For example, we require accurate Personal Information to, among other things, sign you up for our Printer’s Ink Letter, complete an estimate, inquire about employment or submit feedback. Personal Information may include: (i) Contact Data (such as your name, job title, occupation, phone number, company name, company address, mailing and e-mail addresses); (ii) Financial Data (such as your credit check scores and information, account or credit card numbers); (iii) Demographic Data (such as your zip code and income). If you communicate with us by e-mail, post messages to any of our chat groups, bulletin boards or forums, or otherwise complete online forms, surveys, any information provided in such communication may be collected as Personal Information. Our use of this Personal Information is set forth below.

Submitting Personal Information is Your Choice

You may choose not to provide us with any Personal Information. In such an event, you can still access and use much of the Site; however you will not be able to access and use those portions of the Site that require your Personal Information.

Use of Personal Information Collected

The Personal Information you enter on this Site is used to respond or contact you when necessary and to provide our visitors with a better Internet experience. Your Personal Information will be kept in the strictest confidence. From time to time, we aggregate Personal Information entered into our Site in order to identify our demographic audience (collective characteristics/ behavior) and to measure overall interest in specific areas of the Site. By aggregating the Personal Information into a form whereby we can no longer personally identify you, we are allowed to analyze how and where to best use our resources without impinging on your privacy. Thomson-Shore may use this information for promotional purposes. Again, however, all such aggregate information is not personally identifiable. Except as otherwise provided in this Privacy Policy, we will keep your Personal Information private and will not disclose, sell, exchange or share it with third parties, without your approval, unless such disclosure is necessary to:

a. Comply with the law, a court order or legal process;

b. Protect our rights or property; or

c. Enforce our Terms of Use.

Security of Personal Information

Your Personal Information is stored on secure web servers that are protected against unauthorized access by third parties. However, while we take efforts to ensure the integrity and security of our network and systems, we cannot absolutely guarantee that our security measures will prevent third-party “hackers” or other malfeasants from illegally obtaining this information.

Commercially reasonable physical, electronic and managerial procedures have been employed to safeguard the security and integrity of your personal information. All information sent when requesting a quotation will be encrypted (SSL) whenever transmitted online. Your Personal Information is accessible only by designated Thomson-Shore employees, and only for purposes intended by the submitter of the information. To protect the security of information exchanged with customers in the customer-specific area of the web site, customers are provided with user names and passwords to access their information. All information that is exchanged while accessing the customer specific portion of the Website is encrypted.

Do Not Track Notice

We may use automatic data collection technology to record other information that identifies your device and tracks your behavior on the Site.  We may automatically receive and record information on our server logs from your browser, including your IP address, cookies, and the pages you request, as well as pages you have visited of our partner and affiliate websites and the products you were interested in on that site.  We use third parties to support the Site.  Therefore, the Site may not comply with Do Not Track settings on your browser.
