3. How We Use The Information We Collect

Our primary purpose in collecting your information is to provide you with a service. You agree that we may use your personal information to:

    •    Provide you with information about publishing and book marketing;

    •    Notify you about our services;   

    •   to assist you with any enquiries that you have raised with us, including any queries and issues raised in any correspondence and via the Website;

    •    to carry out our obligations arising from any contracts entered into between you and us; and

    •    Carry out internal administration and analysis.

 

4. How We Use The Information For Marketing

We will only send you direct marketing communications in circumstances where we have your specific consent or where we believe we can demonstrate a legitimate interest. 

 

When you fill out a form on our website or otherwise give us your personal information, we ask for your consent to send you direct marketing communication over a variety of channels. We will honour your right to withdraw your consent at any time.

 

When you enquire about or request a service from us, we may rely on our legitimate business interests to send you marketing communications (via post, email or telephone). These communications will always be related to our services and we believe will be of interest to you.  We will provide you with the opportunity to opt-out of this at any time. 

 

If you want to stop receiving direct marketing from us, you can use the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any email you receive or alternatively you can contact the representative responsible for Data Protection using the details available in the Privacy Summary.

 

5. How We Share Information With Third Parties

We will not sell or rent your information to third parties for example other companies that will contact you with marketing material.

 

However, just like most service providers, Authoright works with third parties who administer important functions for us that allow us to offer and enhance the services we provide. These providers, or Data Processors, are covered by an appropriate agreement and are located within the European Economic Area. Sometimes it will be necessary for us to disclose information required for the specific purpose to them so that the services can be performed and by requesting us to provide you with the services you consent to this disclosure.

 

We reserve the right to disclose to third parties your information to comply with applicable laws including but not limited to disclosure in accordance with the Act, the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000 and lawful authority requests, to safeguard the proper operation of our systems and to protect ourselves and the companies we work with.

 

The Data Processors that Authoright currently works with to enhance the services we provide include, but are not limited to Google and MailChimp. Please contact us for the most up-to-date list, if required.

 

6. Information Security

Authoright is committed to handling your information with high standards of information security. We collect, store and process your information on servers primarily located in the United Kingdom but also elsewhere in the European Economic Area. We use safeguards such as firewalls and data encryption and we authorise access to personal information only for those employees who require it to fulfil their job responsibilities. 

 

These security measures mean that we may occasionally have to ask you for proof of identity before we are able to disclose personal information to you; however, there will be no administration charge for such a request.

 

7. Accessing, Deleting Or Updating Your Information
