How We Collect Non-Personal Information. We generally collect non-personal information through automatic data collection technologies, which are described in more detail below.
We may use automatic data collection technologies and analytics tools (such as Google Analytics) to collect information from your device or browser about your equipment, browsing actions, and patterns when you access, use, and interact with the Service. The information we collect automatically is statistical data, and generally does not include personal information. We use this information to maintain the security and operation of the Service, and to gain insights about the functionality and use of the Service in order to improve the Service.
Location Information. We may, from time to time, track use location through IP logging for security and fraud prevention purposes. Use location may also be tracked in connection with our use of automatic data collection technologies, such as Google Analytics.
Do Not Track Disclosure. You may set your web browser to transmit a “Do Not Track” signal to websites and online services you visit. At this time, we do not respond to or alter our practices when our systems receive a Do Not Track signal from a user’s web browser.

We share and disclose your information in the following situations:
Vendors, Consultants and Other Third-Party Service Providers. We may share your data with third party vendors, service providers, contractors or agents who perform services for us or on our behalf and require access to such information to do that work. Examples include: data analysis, email delivery, hosting services, customer service and marketing efforts. Unless described in this Policy, we do not share, sell, rent or trade any of your information with third parties for their promotional purposes.

Vital Interests and Legal Rights. We may disclose your information where we believe it is necessary to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding potential violations of our policies, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the safety of any person and illegal activities, or as evidence in litigation in which we are involved.
Business Transfers. We may share or transfer your information in connection with, or during negotiations of, any merger, sale of company assets, financing, or acquisition of all or a portion of our business to another company.
With your Consent. We may disclose your personal information for any other purpose with your consent.
In general, we will only retain personal information for as long as you are using the Service or as otherwise needed to provide you the Service or complete other purposes described in this Policy. We may also retain and use your Personal Information as necessary to satisfy any legal requirements, including enforcing our rights and agreements and resolving disputes. We will try to delete your information promptly consistent with these data retention practices. However, there might be some technical delay involved in deleting information from our servers, and backed-up versions might still exist after deletion. In addition, we do not delete any data that has been rendered completely anonymous or maintained in de-identified, aggregated form with data of other users (such as usage trend reports).
To determine the appropriate retention period for Personal Information, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.
We implement security measures designed to protect your information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. We protect your information from potential security breaches by implementing certain technological security measures including encryption, firewalls and secure socket layer technology. However, these measures do not guarantee that your information will not be accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed by breach of such firewalls and secure server software. By using our Service, you acknowledge that you understand and agree to assume these risks, and CoRead shall not be responsible for the circumvention of any of the Service’s privacy settings or security measures.
CoRead aims to provide transparency, security, and accessibility when it comes to your personal data.
You may request information about what data we have collected about you, or you may request a copy of your personal data from us at any time. We will need to verify that you are the individual about whom the requested information relates before we provide specific information to you. If you request a copy of your data, and we can complete the verification process described in more detail below, we will provide you a copy in a structured, electronic format. Please see the section below called “Exercising Your Rights & Request Verification” for more details.
You may also request that your personal data be corrected if you believe it is incorrect or incomplete, or that it be deleted entirely. We will delete your personal data upon your request if you send us a request with a description of the basis for your request; however, we may first restrict processing of your data as permitted under applicable law in order to assess your request prior to any deletion of data.
You may revoke consent to our processing activities that are based on your consent, if and when applicable. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.
Finally, you may object to our processing of your personal data, or request that we restrict the processing of your personal data. If you request that we restrict processing of your data, we will stop processing your data, but it may impact our ability to provide the Service to you, and we may still store your data as permitted under applicable law pending an assessment of your request.
We may not be able to accommodate a request to change or delete information if the change would violate any law or legal requirement, or if such change would cause the information to be incorrect.
If you are a resident of the European Economic Area and you believe we are unlawfully processing your personal information, you also have the right to complain to your local data protection supervisory authority.

You do not need to create an account with us to exercise your rights to opt out, obtain your personal information, or request that we delete your information. However, we may ask you to provide additional personal information so that we can properly identify you to respond to your request. We will only use personal information that you provide in connection with an information and/or deletion request in order to review and comply with your request, and to track compliance with your request. If you choose not to provide this information, we may only be able to process your request to the extent we are able to identify you in our data systems.
In order to verify any requests you submit to receive or delete your information, we will need you to provide your full name and email address. You can submit a request by sending us an email with your name, email address, and a brief description regarding your request.
