This Privacy Statement sets forth our current privacy practices with regard to the information we collect when you or your computer interact with our website. By accessing PubMatch.com, you acknowledge and fully understand PubMatch.com's Privacy Statement and freely consent to the information collection and use practices described in this Website Privacy Statement.
2. PARTICIPATING MERCHANT POLICIES
Related services and offerings with links from this website, including vendor sites, have their own privacy statements that can be viewed by clicking on the corresponding links within each respective website. Online merchants and others who participate in PubMatch.com's services are encouraged to participate in industry privacy initiatives and to take a responsible attitude towards consumer privacy. However, since we do not have direct control over the policies or practices of participating merchants and other third parties, we are not responsible for the privacy practices or contents of those sites. We recommend and encourage that you always review the privacy policies of merchants and other third parties before you provide any personal information or complete any transaction with such parties.
3. INFORMATION WE COLLECT AND HOW WE USE IT
PubMatch.com collects certain information from and about its users three ways: directly from our Web Server logs, the user, and with Cookies.
a. Web Server Logs.
When you visit our Website, we may track information to administer the site and analyze its usage. Examples of information we may track include:
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. For example, if you personalize a web page, or navigate within a site, a cookie helps the site to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. Hence, this simplifies the process of delivering relevant content and eases site navigation by providing and saving your preferences and login information as well as providing personalized functionality.
PubMatch.com reserves the right to share aggregated site statistics with partner companies, but does not allow other companies to place cookies on our website unless there is a temporary, overriding customer value (such as merging into PubMatch.com a site that relies on third-party cookies).
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies. If you reject cookies by changing your browser settings then be aware that this may disable some of the functionality on our Website.

c. Personal Information Users
When you register, we will request some personal information such as name, address, email, telephone number or facsimile number, account number and other relevant information. You may also be asked to disclose personal information to us so that we can provide assistance and information to you. For example, such data may be warranted in order to provide online technical support and troubleshooting.
We will not disclose personally identifiable information we collect from you to third parties without your permission except to the extent necessary including:
PubMatch.com will not share your personal information with anyone. Additionally, any images, files, manuscripts, books, etc. uploaded to PubMatch.com, while available for viewing, remain the property of the company or person who has uploaded it. No intellectual property will become the property of PubMatch.com.
Any connections made via PubMatch.com, and the details contained within any legal contracts created via connections made on PubMatch.com remain the concern of the parties involved. PubMatch.com does not offer contract advice, nor should messages passed via PubMatch.com be considered binding legal contracts until reviewed by legal council by each party involved. Contracts considered via PubMatch.com should be signed and completed in person.
Any material a user uploads to PubMatch.com for viewing by the general Pubmatch.com community is owned by the person or company uploading the material. However, while we continually make strides to prevent others from taking your property, we recommend you not share information that you cannot prove you own, and can risk losing the copyright over. It is the decision of the user to determine how much information from their profile is available for viewing on the "live" site. Users can adjust these settings from their "member home page," and PubMatch.com will not alter your settings for you.
Some of the materials included on this Site, including advertising, may be served by third parties. These third parties, in the course of serving such materials, may collect information regarding your use of this Site and how you respond to e-mail communications, using methods that may include automatic data collection, and may use this information in order to present advertisements or other content that may be of interest to you on both this Site and other web sites. Collection, use, disclosure and security of information collected by third parties are subject to the privacy policies of those third parties.
Here is the list of third parties we use along with how we use them and a link to their respective privacy policies:
4. USE OF WEB BEACONS OR GIF FILES
PubMatch.com's Web pages may contain electronic images known as Web beacons - sometimes also called single-pixel gifs - that allow PubMatch.com to count users who have visited those pages and to deliver co-branded services. PubMatch.com may include Web beacons in promotional e-mail messages or newsletters in order to determine whether messages have been opened and acted upon.
Some of these Web beacons may be placed by third party service providers to help determine the effectiveness of our advertising campaigns or email communications. These Web beacons may be used by these service providers to place a persistent cookie on your computer. This allows the service provider to recognize your computer each time you visit certain pages or emails and compile anonymous information in relation to those page views, which in turn enables us and our service providers to learn which advertisements and emails bring you to our website and how you use the site. PubMatch.com prohibits Web beacons from being used to collect or access your personal information.
5. ACCESSING WEB ACCOUNT INFORMATION
We will provide you with the means to ensure that personally identifiable information in your web account file is correct and current. You may review this information by contacting us by sending an email to our support attendant - [email protected].
6. CHANGES TO THIS STATEMENT
PubMatch.com has the discretion to occasionally update this privacy statement. When we do, we will also revise the "updated" date at the top of this Privacy page. We encourage you to periodically review this privacy statement to stay informed about how we are helping to protect the personal information we collect. Your continued use of the service constitutes your agreement to this privacy statement and any updates.
