What Information Do We Collect?
When you visit our website you may provide us with two types of information: (1) optional personal information you choose to disclose that is collected on an individual basis, which is used solely for correspondence you have specifically requested or regarding comments you have expressly left, and (2) website usage information that is collected on an aggregate basis as you and others browse our site, which is used solely to measure site traffic and visitor statistics.
As with most websites, our web server uses log files. Data automatically and customarily collected by log files includes IP (Internet protocol) addresses, browser types, Internet Service Providers (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform types, date/time stamps, and the number of clicks. Log files are used for website administration and to analyze trends, safeguard site security, show movement across pages, and gather broad demographic information. The data in log files is not linked to any personally identifiable information. All of our web server log files are automatically and permanently purged after seven days, thus fulfilling GDPR requirements.
You can sign up to receive our free monthly newsletter by providing your email address in the “Special Offers” or “Free Books” boxes. Our newsletter provides news and reviews on Adobe products, offers tips, techniques, and useful resources for using Adobe tools, and helps you save money on Adobe software with special discounts and coupon savings. In each newsletter there is a direct link to unsubscribe if you no longer wish to receive future mailings, and your information would be immediately and permanently deleted from our records. If you would otherwise like to modify or completely remove the email address stored in our subscriber list, please simply let us know via our contact form. Your email address will never be sold, rented, or shared with any other parties, unless exceptionally required by law.
Our site’s content, including comments, is regularly indexed by search bots and, therefore, has the potential to be read, printed, and otherwise distributed around the world without the commenter’s consent. Within each comment, the publicly visible fields are Name, Website, and the content of the comment itself. Commenters agree not to hold our site liable for any unintended use of any comments they post. If you chose to post a comment on the site, you concurrently make certain concessions to publicity and, therefore, limit your personal privacy and that of your post. Nevertheless, we will never collect, sell, or otherwise distribute user information (such as email addresses) that isn’t otherwise publicly available on the site without the permission of the user(s). Just as our editors maintain the right to delete or edit any comment at any time for any reason they deem appropriate, any user may request his/her comments be deleted at any time for any reason s/he deems appropriate. Any requests for comment removal should be made via our contact form.
