Privacy Notices

This Policy may be supplemented or amended from time to time by “privacy notices.” These Privacy Notices provide a level of detail that we cannot provide in this more general description of our privacy practices. For example, this Site may contain Privacy Notices providing details about the Personal Information we collect using certain functionalities, why we need that information, and choices you may have about the ways we use that information.

Types of Information We Collect

Information you and others volunteer. Luminary collects the Personal Information you and others manually provide when you use this Site, which interfaces with our mobile application and helps you study and communicate about certain literary works. For example, we collect the Personal Information you submit when you create and/or distribute commentary on a particular literary work, invite a friend to use our mobile application (such as your friend’s email address), sign up for certain services, or contact us with questions.

Information from a third-party social networking service. You may have the opportunity to choose to register, log-on, or enhance your profile on this Site through your account with certain third-party social networking services, including, but not limited to, Facebook. By doing this, you are asking the third-party social networking service to send us registration information from your account with that service. We treat that information as we do any other information you give to us when you register, log-on, or enhance your profile.

Information sent to us by your web browser. We collect information that is sent to us automatically by your web browser.

IP Addresses. Your IP address is the identifier assigned to your particular computer when you access the Internet. IP addresses do not include your name, email address or other Personal Information, but in some cases, they can be used to identify you. For example, we may link your IP address to information that identifies you. If we suspect inappropriate or criminal activity or a threat to this Site or its users, we may also share our server logs—which contain users’ IP addresses—with the appropriate investigative authorities, who could use that information to trace and identify individuals.

The types of information we may collect include the type of device you use, your device’s unique ID, the IP address of your device, your device’s operating system, the type of mobile Internet browsers you use, and information about the way you use our mobile or tablet application.

  • support the features and functionality of this Site—for example, to save you the trouble of reentering information already in our database or to prompt the settings you established on previous visits; and
  • personalize your experience when you use this Site.

Generally, the information we collect using these web technologies does not identify you personally. We may, however, link information we collect using these technologies to information that does identify you.

Steps We Take to Safeguard your Personal Information

We maintain reasonable administrative, physical, and technological measures to protect the confidentiality and security of Personal Information you submit on or through this Site. Unfortunately, no website, server or database is completely secure or “hacker proof.” We therefore cannot guarantee that your Personal Information will not be disclosed, misused or lost by accident or by the unauthorized acts of others.

How We Share Your Personal Information With Others

Business Negotiations. We may contemplate, for strategic or other reasons, selling, buying, merging, or otherwise reorganizing one or more of our businesses. In negotiating with a third party about entering into such an arrangement, we may need to disclose your Personal Information. In such cases, we will take reasonable measures to protect the Personal Information we disclose, for example, by requiring a prospective purchaser to sign a non-disclosure agreement limiting the use and protecting the confidentiality of the Personal Information.

Business Transfers. Your Personal Information may be transferred to successor organization if, for example, we transfer the ownership or operation of this Site to another organization or if we merge with another organization.
