Why we collect personal information

Manning collects personal information so that we can keep our readers informed. We use the data to let you know about recent news, upcoming release dates, special offers, events and the like that our customers might wish to hear about. We also collect information about how visitors make use of our website, in order to analyze and improve the user experience and site performance.

The information Manning gathers and tracks

Manning collects two types of information: (1) data that is submitted voluntarily by visitors wishing to receive news or product information, to provide us with feedback or to purchase products directly from us; and (2) tracking data that we and our service providers gather while users are interacting with our Web sites.

Manning does not sell or rent email addresses or other personally identifiable information that visitors provide. We will, however, release information in order to comply with the law, or when it is appropriate to protect the rights, property or safety of Manning, our users, or others. It may be necessary for Manning to exchange information with other companies or agencies in the interest of fraud protection and credit risk reduction, or in the performance of contracted site services such as testing or analysis.

Tracking information

Manning tracks user information such as clickstreams, pageviews, downloads, registrations, conversions, referral sources, search terms and more in order to analyze website usage and metrics, to identify potential improvements to the site, and to provide support.

Cookies

Manning uses small data files called cookies to help us tailor our websites to individual users. Cookies are transferred to your computer's hard drive through your web browser, which enables our systems to recognize our user's computers and to enhance and customize the user experience. While most web browsers allow users to partially or completely block the use of cookies or javascript in their local settings, disabling these features will diminish the usability of our site.
