Privacy

The Documentary Archaeology of Late Medieval Europe

Your privacy and the security of your data is important to us. To better protect your privacy, we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used. To make this notice easy to find, we make it available on our homepage and at every point where personally identifiable information may be requested. This notice applies to all information collected or submitted on the DALME website.

The information we collect

We may collect non-personal information about the computer, mobile device or other device you use to access this website, such as IP address, geolocation information, unique device identifiers, browser type, browser language, or other information of this nature. We use this information in an aggregate fashion to track access to our website. At no time do we disclose site usage by individual IP addresses.

On some pages, you can make requests and register to receive materials. The types of personal information collected on these pages are name and email address. On some pages, you can submit information to other people. For example, if you want to forward an article to another person, you will need to submit the recipient’s email address.

The way we use information

We use the information you provide about yourself only to complete the task for which it is requested. We do not share this information with outside parties. We use return email addresses to answer the email we receive. Such addresses are not used for any other purpose and are not shared with outside parties. We employ non-identifying and aggregate information to better design our website. Finally, we never use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated to the ones described above without also providing you with an opportunity to opt-out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.

We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our website by identifying (1) which parts of our site are most heavily used, and (2) which portion of our audience comes from within the Harvard network. We do not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable. This means that user sessions will be tracked, but the users will remain anonymous.

Cookies

Cookies are small files that are stored on your computer (unless you block them). We use cookies to understand and save your preferences for future visits and compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interaction so that we can offer better site experiences and tools in the future.

Third-Party Cookies

Cookies may be set by an organization other than us. These “third-party cookies” may, for example, originate from websites such as YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, Google Plus or other social media services for which we have implemented “plug-ins”.

We may provide hyperlinks to third-party websites as a convenience to you. We do not control third-party websites and we are not responsible for the contents of any linked-to, third-party websites or any hyperlink in a linked-to website. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of third-party websites.

Our commitment to data security

To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information we gather about you, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure.
