COMMUNICATIONS FROM THE SITE
EMAIL PRODUCT OR PETITION TO A FRIEND
If you choose to email a product description to a friend, we will ask you for your name and email address, and for your recipient’s name and email address. If you choose to send a petition description to a friend, only the friend’s email address is required. We will automatically send your chosen recipient(s) a one-time email to view the product or petition. CoolGospel does not store, sell, trade or otherwise use any name or email address you share here for purposes other than to deliver your message.
If you wish to subscribe to our e-newsletter(s), we will use your name and email address to send a periodic email to you. For some audio book downloads and giveaways, your email may be shared with the original publishing company. We provide unsubscribe options with each and every email sent in this manner. This is also summarized in the “Choice and Opt-out” section below.
We will send you strictly service-related announcements on rare occasions when it is necessary to do so. For instance, if our service is temporarily suspended for maintenance, we might send you an email. You may not opt-out of these communications, which are not promotional in nature.

ELECTRONIC LOG FILES
As is true of most sites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in electronic log files. This information includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, approximate geographic location, the type of mobile device you are using, mobile device IDs or other persistent identifiers, date/time stamp, and clickstream data.
We do not link this automatically-collected data to personally identifiable information. We use this information to understand how our websites are used to better meet the needs of our visitors and customers. We use IP address to identify and block malicious behavior like click fraud or denial of service attacks. We may also use this data to conduct statistical analyses on visitors’ usage patterns and other aggregated data.
We use electronic cookies (browser and/or Flash cookies) to recognize your computer as a returning visitor. A cookie is a small text file that is stored on your computer and/or locally stored objects for record-keeping purposes. Cookies allow us to recognize and count the number of users of our website and see and store how users click and navigate through our website. This helps to improve how our website works, for example, by ensuring that you can find what you are looking for easily, and by identifying when you get an error message. Cookies record your visit to our website, the pages you have visited and the links you have followed. We will then use this information to make the content you see, for example, marketing messages from us, more relevant to your interests.
