We only use your personal information to provide you the Diaries Direct services or to communicate with you about the services or the Website. We employ industry standard techniques to protect against unauthorised access of data about you that we store, including personal information. We do not share personal information you have provided to us without your consent, unless:

  • doing so is appropriate to carry out your own request;
  • it is legally required;
  • we believe it’s needed to detect, prevent or address fraud, security or technical issues;

Sharing of Data

We don’t share your personal information with third parties. Only aggregated, anonymised data is periodically transmitted to external services to help us improve the Diaries Direct Website and service. We currently use Google Analytics (traffic analysis, SEO optimization), Google AdSense (serving advertisements) and Google Translate (translating the website into languages other than English). We listed below what data these third parties extract exactly. Feel free to check out their own Privacy Policies to find out more.

  • Google Analytics: anonymous (ad serving domains, browser type, demographics, language settings, page views, time/date), pseudonymous (IP address)
  • Google Adsense
  • Campaing Monitor for email list management

We also use social buttons provided by services like Twitter, Google+, Facebook and LinkedIn. Your use of these third party services is entirely optional. We are not responsible for the privacy policies and/or practices of these third party services, and you are responsible for reading and understanding those third party services’ privacy policies.

We employ and contract with people and other entities that perform certain tasks on our behalf and who are under our control (our “Agents”). We may need to share personal information with our Agents in order to provide products or services to you. Unless we tell you differently, our Agents do not have any right to use Personal Information or other information we share with them beyond what is necessary to assist us. You hereby consent to our sharing of Personal Information with our Agents.

We may choose to buy or sell assets. In these types of transactions, user information is typically one of the transferred business assets. Moreover, if we, or substantially all of our assets, were acquired, or if we go out of business or enter bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of us or our assets may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

We may amend this Privacy Policy from time to time. Use of information we collect now is subject to the Privacy Policy in effect at the time such information is used. A user is bound by any changes to the Privacy Policy when he or she uses the Services after such changes have been first posted.
