Database Vendor Privacy Statement

The McHenry Public Library cares about protecting our patron’s privacy. This statement is to make patrons aware that we use third-party vendors who provide digital collections, resources, streaming media content, and more. Some of these vendors may collect and share the information you provide to them when you log in, in order to use their services. The types of information that could be collected by the vendors include:

  • Any information you provide when you register for the site, provide feedback and suggestions, request information, or create shared content.
  • Internet Address (IP Address), search history, location-based data, and device information.
  • Non-personally identifiable information, such as your ad views, analytics, browser information, cookie data, date/time of your request, demographic data, hardware/software type, interaction data, serving domains, page views, and the web page you visited immediately prior to visiting the site.
  • Other data as described in the vendor’s privacy policy and terms of use.

The following MPLD policies do not apply to any of the third-party vendors we use: “Confidentiality and Public Records Retention”, “Personal Information Protection Policy”, and “Privacy/Identity Theft Protection Policy”. We recommend that you review the privacy statements of the vendors to decide if you agree to their terms. Each vendor maintains its Privacy Policy on the homepage of the service. If you require assistance locating a particular vendor’s privacy policy please ask an MPLD librarian for assistance.

You can choose not to use these third-party vendors.
