We may share your account credentials and other related Personal Information (such as username, email address, encrypted password, first and last name) with the Crimson Codex Group companies. The Crimson Codex Group aims to provide you with a unique service experience through the “Crimson Codex ID” or Crimson Codex “Global ID”.

By connecting to another Crimson Codex ID service, you direct the Crimson Codex ID services to share your data for the purposes explained in our joint privacy policy here: https://crimsoncodex.com/privacy-policy. We share your account credentials and profile information (address and date of birth, where provided) with the Crimson Codex ID services. This service is jointly provided by the Crimson Codex ID Services as directed by you if you sign up with another Crimson Codex ID Service.

Law enforcement agencies, courts, regulators and government authorities

We may share the information we collect, including Personal Information, with law enforcement or to otherwise comply with any statutory or regulatory requirement or the order of a court or other public authority agency, regulator, government authority or other third parties where we believe this is necessary to comply with a legal or regulatory obligation, or otherwise to protect our rights or the rights of any third party.

In the context of a transaction

We may share the information we collect, including Personal Information, with any third party that purchases, or to which we transfer, all or substantially all of our assets and business. Should such a sale or transfer occur, we will use reasonable efforts to try to ensure that the entity to which we transfer your Personal Information uses it in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Policy.

Legal basis for using your Personal Information.

Data Transfer

We may transfer your Personal Information to Crimson Codex Group entities and service providers located outside of your home country, including to countries outside the EEA for the purposes described in the subsections above (“How we may share the information we collect”). Your Personal Information may need to be processed in countries where data protection and privacy regulations may not offer the same level of protection as in your home country. Please note that we may be transferring your Personal Information to the United States of America, Canada, Mexico, France, the Netherlands, Ireland and Japan as well as other countries where we have active retailer partners and third-party business partners or service providers who may be data processors. In such cases, we will require the recipient to provide appropriate protection for the Personal Information disclosed to it, in compliance with applicable data protection laws.

We take great care in protecting your Personal Information and have put in place mechanisms to protect it when it is transferred internationally, consistent with applicable law.

Legal basis for processing your Personal Information if you are in the EEA

If you use the Crimson Codex Services while in the EEA, we must have a legal basis to process your Personal Information for the purposes above, including data received from social media platforms, data received from other sources used for statistics or data shared with third-party advertisers. There are different legal bases that we rely on to use your Personal Information, namely:

  • Performance of a contract – The use of your Personal Information may be necessary to send you Emails and messages concerning the administration and operation of your Crimson Codex Account and/or the Crimson Codex Services.
  • Consent – We will rely on your consent to use (i) technical information; and (ii) your Personal Information for marketing and advertising purposes. You may withdraw your consent at any time by following an unsubscribe link in any marketing communication you receive from us.
  • Legitimate interests – We may use your Personal Information for our legitimate interests to improve our products and services and the content available on the Crimson Codex Platform. These improvements are dependent on analyzing (for example) how you use the Services, such as pages you view, the rate at which you consume e-content (how often, and for how long), genres, authors or subject matter you prefer and searches you make or share, the ebooks or audiobooks you have liked, comments you have left, websites you have viewed through links, the success rate(s) of any promotion or event, certain technical information about your device, or when you access our application through a certain device, purchase path or transactional data and customer care interactions. We will also use your Personal Information for security purposes, and to share information with our affiliates for internal administration based on legitimate interest.
  • Legal obligation and public interest – Where compelled by applicable law, we may also have a legal obligation to collect your Personal Information, or may otherwise need your Personal Information to protect your vital interests or those of another person.

If we need to further process your Personal Information, we will let you know if there is a different legal basis for that further processing that is not compatible with the notices and consents that we have already from you, and we will provide you with any relevant further information and consent options.

Your choices and your rights over your Personal Information.

  • Right to be free from discrimination: California residents may freely exercise these rights without fear of being denied goods or services. We may, however, provide a different level of service or charge a different rate reasonably relating to the value of your data.

You may in some cases have the option to decline to provide us information. However, your choice to not provide information may impact your use of certain features or services. You may also have other rights in relation to your Personal Information under local law. In the event you reside in such a jurisdiction and would like to exercise one of your rights, please contact us at privacy@crimsoncodex.com.

Third-party Websites.

Do Not Track Signals.

We do not currently respond to web browser “do not track” signals or other mechanisms that provide a method to opt out of the collection of information across websites or other online services. If we do so in the future, we will update this privacy policy.

Security and Data Retention.

We care about the security of your Personal Information. We deploy administrative, technical, and physical measures designed to ensure a level of security appropriate to the risk to the Personal Information we collect. We evaluate these safeguards on an ongoing basis to help minimize risks from new security threats as they become known. However, no information system can be 100% secure. Moreover, we are not responsible for the security of information you transmit to us over networks that we do not control, including the Internet and wireless networks. We need your help too: it is your responsibility to make sure that your Personal Information is accurate and we encourage you to ensure that your password is unique, secure and not shared with third parties.

We retain the information collected via the Crimson Codex Services for as long as we have a relationship with you, and until such time as you choose to close your Crimson Codex Account. After that time, we will only retain your Personal Information if we are required to do so to comply with local law, or if there are outstanding claims or complaints that will reasonably require your Personal Information to be retained. We may also anonymize and aggregate the data and retain the data in that form for analytical purposes.

Cookies & Other Tracking Technologies: How We Use Them

Like most companies, we use cookies and similar technologies such as cookie IDs and settings, and tracker software tools (“cookies”).

We may use cookies for a variety of purposes and to enhance your online experience, for example, by remembering your log-in status.

We use both session and persistent tracking technologies. Tracking technologies can either be persistent (i.e., they remain on your computer until you delete them) or temporary (i.e., they last only until you close your browser).

We also use first and third-party cookies. First party cookies are used and controlled by us to provide services for the Services. Third-party cookies are controlled by third-parties, mostly for analytics purposes.

We and our retail partners automatically collect information from cookies and similar technologies to recognize you, learn how you interact with the Crimson Codex Services and use your devices, and to serve you with surveys, tailored promotions and other marketing and content recommendations. You may limit our ability to automatically collect certain types of information by adjusting the cookie settings on your web browsers.

Subject to local law, you may have certain rights regarding information that we have collected from cookies and that is related to you. We encourage you to contact us to update or correct your information if it changes or if you believe that any information that we have collected about you is inaccurate. Please note that we will likely require additional information from you in order to honor your requests. If you would like to discuss or exercise such rights, send us an email at privacy@crimsoncodex.com. Alternatively, you may have a right to complain to your local data protection authority (if one exists in your country).

We process personal information to enable us to make better, more helpful reading recommendations; to sell goods and services to and to support and advise our members; to promote and advertise our services; maintain our own accounts and records and to support and manage our employees.

In order to perform these tasks well, we need to store information about you and your correspondence with us, and your shopping and browsing activity on the Website.

If we know your IP address, we can customize your experience on crimsoncodex.com so that we will display content to you that is relevant to your location. For example, we’ll show you bestseller lists, and offer you topical new titles that are relevant to your location.

Additionally, we are required under many of our supply agreements to take note of visitors’ IP addresses in order to keep promises we’ve made to book publishers that we will restrict the sale of their ebooks so that they are only offered for sale in those territories for which each publisher has permission to sell those ebooks.

Legitimate interests

We act as custodians of the ebooks you’ve bought from us and accordingly we maintain your “bookshelf” and wish list for your future access and use.

What Are Cookies Used For?

First party cookies are small data files that we use for things such as keeping track of what you’ve put in your basket and remembering who you are when you return to our site. We don’t save personal information such as credit card details in the cookies we create.

Third party cookies are set on our behalf. The most important of these are Google and Commission Junction, who display text or banner adverts on our behalf on a number of other reputable websites or in Internet search results. Commission Junction does not collect personal data from our website.
