At youlostmebook, we want to be completely transparent about the information we collect from our users, and the ways in which we use that information. We believe this is the only way we can ensure a proper communication between our team and our readers. Please read the following sections carefully. Feel free to send us a message if there’s anything you would like to know more about.
Information We Collect
We collect two types of information from our users. These two types are personally identifiable information and non-personally identifiable information. We will explain what each of them means and how we collect it in the following paragraphs.
Personally Identifiable Information
What is it?
As the name implies, personally identifiable information is a type of personal information that can be used to identify you. In this category, we include your full name and e-mail address.
This type of information is highly sensitive, and as such, we generally avoid collecting it. When we do, we take the utmost care to protect, and ensure nobody outside our team has access to it.
How we collect it
We collect personally identifiable information (full name, e-mail address) when you ask to receive our newsletter, when you send us a message, and when you leave a comment. That said, you have the option of using an alias, if you are not comfortable sharing your personal information with us. You do not need to provide your real name and e-mail address.
We will never collect this type of information without your permission. We will always request this information, and you must offer it voluntarily. You may refuse to offer this information, if you are not comfortable sharing it with us. However, we assure you we are just as serious about your privacy as you are.
If, at any time, you want us to delete your comments on our website, or all of your personal information, send us an e-mail at . In no longer than 30 days, we will completely erase all of the information we collected from you.
How we use it
As we mentioned, we generally collect personally identifiable information when you sign up for our newsletter, when you post a comment on our website, or when you send us a message.
We collect this information to maintain communication between our team and our users. We require this information, first to verify that you are who you claim to be. Secondly, we require this information to get in touch, respond to your inquiries, or send you personalized offers according to your needs.
Non-personally Identifiable Information
What is it?
Non-personally identifiable information is a type of personal information that cannot be used to identify you directly. This includes geographic region, browser type, age group, gender, etc.
This type of information is less sensitive than personally identifiable information. However, this doesn’t mean we are any less careful about how we collect, store, and use it.
How we collect it
Our website collects this information automatically, whenever you access one of our pages. This information is stored in ‘log files’. These log files let us know when you accessed our website, what pages you visited, where you were when you entered our website, and what browser you used.
How we use it
Non-personally identifiable information is used strictly for statistical purposes. Non-personally identifiable information lets us know how we can perfect our website and website content to better suit the needs and preferences of our readers.
We use non-personally identifiable information in these cases so as to not encroach upon your privacy, since this information cannot be used to identify you. We do not share non-personally identifiable information with third parties. We respect our users’ legal rights, and we use their information in accordance with the most recent laws and regulations.
The information we collect using cookies allows us to deliver content that is tailored to your needs and preferences. Cookies also help us optimize our site, and continuously perfect our content.
Third Party Websites and Limitations of Liability
We make a genuine effort to ensure your privacy and protect the information we obtain from you. However, you, the user, must also facilitate this process. To do so, please refrain from posting any personal information on our website in publicly visible sections, such as the comments section. We do not take responsibility for any privacy breaches you may experience as a result of sharing private information in the public sections of our websites.
Likewise, do not share personal information, such as full name, email address, or phone number with other users of our website. Please offer personal information only to trusted sources, and only if you know and understand how that information is going to be used.
