CLKBooks is not responsible for the information collection or privacy practices of third web sites or applications.
1. Collection of Information.
1.1 Survey Information.
CLKBooks collects information from individuals by various methods, including, but not limited to, when an individual voluntarily completes a CLKBooks survey, order form, or a registration pages either online or offline, or by means of online or offline surveys, order forms, or registration pages operated by third parties (collectively, a "Survey"). (As used herein, "online" means using the Internet, including the Websites, and related technologies, and "offline" means by methods other than online, including in person, in the postal mail, using telephones and cell phones, and other similar means.) In the Surveys, CLKBooks or a third party (a "Third Party") may ask an individual to provide various information to CLKBooks , which may include his or her name, email address, street address, zip code, telephone numbers (including cell phone numbers and carriers), birth date, gender, salary range, education and marital status, occupation, social security number, employment information, personal and online interests, and such other information as may be requested from time to time (together, "Survey Information"). CLKBooks may also collect information concerning an individual from another source and uses that information in combination with information provided from this web site. Completing the Surveys is completely voluntary, and individuals are under no obligation to provide Survey Information to CLKBooks or Third Party, but an individual may receive incentives from CLKBooks or a Third Party in exchange for providing Survey Information to CLKBooks.
1.2 Other Information.
Other occasions when CLKBooks obtains information from individuals include (1) when an individual is making a claim for a prize or seeking to redeem an incentive offered by CLKBooks or by a third party, (2) when an individual requests assistance through CLKBooks's customer service department, and (3) when an individual voluntarily subscribes to a CLKBooks service or newsletter (together, "Other Information").
1.3 Cookies, Web Beacons, and Other Info Collected Using Technology.
CLKBooks currently uses cookie and web beacon technology to associate certain Internet-related information about an individual with information about the individual in our database. Additionally, CLKBooks may use other new and evolving sources of information in the future (together, "Technology Information").
We along with third-party vendors, such as Google use first-party cookies to compile data regarding user interactions with our website. It's also important to note that we allow third party behavioral tracking to serve ads based on a user’s prior visits to your website. This allows us to make special offers and continue to market our services to those who have shown interest in our service.
We have implemented Demographics and Interests Reporting.
Where users have chosen to enable Google to associate their web and app browsing history with their Google account, and to use information from their Google account to personalize ads they see across the web, Google will use data from its signed-in users together with Google Analytics data to build and define audience lists for cross-device remarketing. In order to support this feature, Google Analytics will collect these users’ Google-authenticated identifiers, which are Google’s personal data, and temporarily join them to anonymous Google Analytics data in order to populate advertising audiences audiences.
We will not facilitate the merging of personally-identifiable information with non-personally identifiable information collected through any Google advertising product or feature unless we have robust notice of, and the user's prior affirmative consent to, that merger.
You can opt out by visiting the Network Advertising initiative opt out page or using the Google Analytics Opt Out Browser add on. https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout/
(b) Web Beacons.
A web beacon is programming code that can be used to display an image on a web page (by using a programming function -- see http://truste.org for more information), but can also be used to transfer an individual's unique user identification (often in the form of a cookie) to a database and associate the individual with previously acquired information about an individual in a database. This allows CLKBooks to track certain web sites an individual visits online. Web beacons are used to determine products or services an individual may be interested in, and to track online behavioral habits for marketing purposes. For example, CLKBooks might place, with the consent of a third party website, a web beacon on the third party's website where fishing products are sold. When Bill, an individual listed in CLKBooks's database, visits the fishing website, CLKBooks receives notice by means of the web beacon that Bill visited the fishing site, and CLKBooks would then update Bill's profile with the information that Bill is interested in fishing. CLKBooks may thereafter prCLKBooksnt offers of fishing related products and services to Bill. In addition to using web beacons on web pages, CLKBooks also uses web beacons in email messages sent to individuals listed in CLKBooks's database.
(c) New Technology.
The use of technology on the Internet, including cookies and web beacons, is rapidly evolving, as is CLKBooks's use of new and evolving technology. As a result, CLKBooks strongly encourages individuals to revisit this policy for any updates regarding its use of technology.

If CLKBooks obtains actual knowledge that it has collected personal information about a child under the age of 13, that information will be immediately deleted from our database. Because it does not collect such information, CLKBooks has no such information to use or to disclose to third parties. CLKBooks has designed this policy in order to comply with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act ("COPPA").
