PRIVACY STATEMENT

Pallas Communications, Inc.

Pallas Communications, Inc. (501c3 non-profit publisher of NEXUS Books) is committed to protecting your privacy. Pallas Communications, Inc. does not exchange or sell email addresses or telephone numbers.

The Privacy Policy outlined below states the ways your information is used and protected by us.

YOUR USE OF THIS WEBSITE AND/OR OF THE SERVICES IT PROVIDES CONSTITUTES ACCEPTANCE BY YOU OF THIS PRIVACY STATEMENT.

[NOTE: We frequently use the names Pallas Communications, Inc. and NEXUS or NEXUS Books interchangeably.]

We collect personal information from you (for example, your name, postal address, email address, and other data) that you voluntarily provide through our website or through direct contact.

Cookies

For your convenience, www.nexusbooks.org  might assign a “cookie” during your visit to our website.  A cookie is a mini file that contains information (for example, your login name) and is stored by your computer’s browser. Pallas Communications does not use cookies for any reason other than to streamline your user experience while accessing our website. If cookies are not accepted by your browser, you will be required to re-enter your login name and other information to access some of our services (such as the upcoming Shakespeare Study Hall).

Security and Your Credit Card Information

Nexus cares about the safety and security of your online transactions. Stripe, the credit card system that we employ, secures your transaction in the NEXUS shop. Stripe has been audited by an independent PCI Qualified Security Assessor (QSA) and is certified as a PCI Level 1 Service Provider. This is the most stringent level of certification available in the payments industry.

We use a 256 bit SLL encryption and the https security protocol to communicate with your browser software. This method, which is the industry standard security protocol used by many financial institutions and e-commerce companies; makes it very difficult for anyone to intercept the credit card information you send to us.

We also reinforced the security of our website to keep your personal data safe.

Notwithstanding our commitments to protect your information from loss, misuse or alteration by third parties, you should be aware that there is always some risk involved in transmitting information over the Internet. There is also a risk that others could find a way to thwart our security systems.

Automated Data Collection

In addition to the information you supply to us, the NEXUS Books website collects some information automatically. Web servers automatically record the IP address of visitors to this site, including date and time of visit, web browser used and pages visited.  This information is used for server and network operations and to better understand how visitors use this website.  Any statistics compiled from this information will not include personal information.

Links to Other Websites

Pallas Communications, Inc. (https://nexusbooks.org) may contain links to other websites which are not always under our control.  Pallas Communications, Inc. is not responsible for either the privacy policies or content of these websites. Please contact those sites for information regarding their privacy policies.

A link to another website does not mean that NEXUS Books endorses that site or accepts any responsibility for the content or the use of such website.  Once you leave the NEXUS Books website, our Privacy Policy and Terms of Use no longer apply, and you access such sites at your own risk.

Children’s Privacy

We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under age 13, unless that information is provided by the child’s parent or legal guardian or with their express written permission. For example, if we display an artwork or composition created by a child under age 13 (whether the artist is identified or not), we do so only with parental permission. If by fraud or deception, we receive information regarding children under age 13 or postings by children under age 13, and we are notified of this infringement of our policy, we will immediately seek parental consent to maintain this information or we will delete the information or posting from our servers. If you are aware of any such infringement, please notify us at info@nexusbooks.org.

The Privacy Policy may be revised at any time. We encourage you to revisit this page of our website periodically to keep abreast of any updates to our policy. Any questions or concerns related to policy or any aspect of this website may be directed to info@nexusbooks.org.

In no event will Pallas Communications, Inc. be liable to any party or any direct, indirect, special or other consequential damages for any use of this website, or on any other hyperlinked website, including, without limitation, any lost profits, business interruption, loss of programs or other data on your information handling system or otherwise, even if we are expressly advised of the possibility of such damages.
