Your privacy is critically important to us.
The family of websites operated by Glorian Publishing exist solely to provide information and services to individuals and spiritual groups. We are committed to protecting your privacy, and to making you aware of our online practices regarding the privacy of your information.
Our Privacy Guidelines
- We do not ask you for personal information unless we truly need it.
- We do not share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
- We do not store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.
If you have questions about deleting or correcting your personal data please contact our support team.
Glorian Publishing operates several websites including gnosticteachings.org and samaelaunweor.info. It is Glorian’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, Glorian collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Glorian's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Glorian's visitors use its website. From time to time, Glorian may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Glorian also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments. Glorian only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Glorian's websites choose to interact with Glorian in ways that require Glorian to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Glorian gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a user account at gnosticteachings.org to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Glorian – by purchasing from gnosticstore.org, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Glorian collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Glorian. Glorian does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Glorian may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Glorian may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Glorian does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Glorian discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Glorian's behalf or to provide services available at Glorian's websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Glorian's websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Glorian will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Glorian discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Glorian believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Glorian, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Glorian website and have supplied your email address, Glorian may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Glorian and our services. We primarily use our various blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Glorian takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
