Except as set out in this privacy policy, DLibrary does not disclose or sell your personal information to any third-parties.

We reserve the right to disclose your personal information if required or permitted to do so by law.

Use of Cookies and Other Technologies

DLibrary uses "cookies" to enable you to sign in to our services and to help personalize your online experience. A cookie is a small text file that is placed on your hard drive. Cookies contain information, including personal information, that can later be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you. The information that cookies collect includes the date and time of your visit, your registration information, session identification number and your navigational history and preferences.

Cookies offer you many conveniences. They allow us to identify registered users when they return to the site so that they can retrieve previous session information and so save you time by eliminating the need to repeatedly enter the same information.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to sign in or use other interactive features of our sites and services that depend on cookies.

Security of Your Personal Information

The security of your personal information is important to us. We follow generally accepted industry standards to help protect your personal information including without limitation:

  1. limiting access to your personal information to those of our employees who require it to provide services to you;
  2. requiring employees to sign confidentiality agreements to protect customer and other confidential information;
  3. storing your personal information in secure computer systems which protect it from unauthorized access or use.

No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

If a password is used to protect your account and personal information, it is your responsibility to keep your password confidential.

Links

We may link to websites, including those of our subsidiaries and third-party content providers, that have different privacy policies and practices from those disclosed here.
