Personal information submitted in this way is added to our access control database, hosted by a third party hosting company, and to our customer databases at OUP's premises. This information will be updated if you inform us of any changes.
We may use information in our customer databases to send you information about us and our products which we think may be of interest to you, electronically or otherwise. In the case of subscribers, your personal information will also be used to enable us to verify you are a subscriber and to deliver the Website to you.
We request personal information (such as your name, email address and other contact details) from you when you contact us with subscription management queries, technical problems, to comment on the Website , or when you ask for information about how to use the service. Personal information submitted by you via contact us will not be added to our customer database and we request it simply so that we can respond to you about your query. Statistics regarding the types of queries submitted to us via contact us may be collated by us in aggregate form so that we can effectively monitor the site and improve levels of service.
If you have asked for information or subscribed to the Website in the past and no longer use the service and do not wish us to store information about you, please contact us and we will remove your details from our customer database. We need to store information about current subscribers in order to fulfil our contractual requirements to you and in order to deliver the Website to you.
Unless you have informed us that you do not wish to receive further information about our products, we may send you direct mail.
You may notify us either in writing or by telephone, fax or email that you object to being contacted in a particular stated way. If you use more than one email address to communicate with us, please notify us of each email account you use.
We do not sell your personal information to others.
We share your information within OUP. We also share your information to our affiliates and licensors and supplier which assist us in making the Website available to you on the Website (e.g. our hosting supplier) but we have agreed with those third parties that they will keep your information secure and not use it for other purposes.
