Cappelen Damm’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Cappelen Damm’s visitors use its website.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information Certain visitors to Cappelen Damm’s websites interact with Cappelen Damm in ways that require Cappelen Damm to gather personally-identifying information.

In each case, Cappelen Damm collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Cappelen Damm. Cappelen Damm does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
