Generally, "Personal Information" is information that can be used on its own to identify a specific person. For example, Personal Information can be a full name, home address, email address, phone number, or login details. In most cases, non-personally identifiable information or "non-PII" is data that cannot be used on its own to identify a specific person. For example, in the context of the Services, non-PII can be language preference, bookmarks, or highlights.
Non-PII is treated by Digitalia Publishing as Personal Information when it's collected on an inpidual level and linked to any Personal Information that you have chosen to submit to Digitalia Publishing or that Digitalia Publishing may have collected from your interactions with the Services.
You can use most Services without submitting much information to Digitalia Publishing. Accessing through your library website is all you need to use most Services.
A Digitalia Publishing account is not required to use most Services. In using the library Services, if you choose to create a Digitalia Publishing account, you will be required to submit Personal Information to Digitalia Publishing.
As part of your interaction with the library Services, you may willingly submit your Personal Information in order to access certain features, such as creating an account in order to save your notes and bookmarks.
In addition to information that you may willingly submit to Digitalia Publishing, such as your library card number, and/or email address, Digitalia Publishing may collect and store certain Personal Information and non-PII related to your interactions and use of our Services, including but not limited to, IP address, device type, device ID, operating system, library card number, Adobe ID, library name, lending history, holds, reading progress, bookmarks, highlights, notes, and online activity.
Some Services provide the ability for you to see your lending history. If you are using your institution’s Digitalia Publishing-hosted website or the Digitalia Publishing app, you will have the option to view your lending history. Your lending history is protected by Digitalia Publishing as confidential. It is not shared with any third parties, except to staff with appropriate authority acting within the scope of their duties for the administration of your institution (library, school, etc.). If we are compelled to disclose your lending history pursuant to a court order or subpoena, or to a person or agency with the relevant administrative or legislative investigative power, we will seek to challenge and limit the scope and comply with the authorized agency or person only as required by law.
