This Privacy Policy summarizes your privacy rights regarding the information you provide in response to the DMCA Exemption Call for Stories survey.

You can read Authors Alliance’s main privacy policy here; the information you provide is covered by that policy, except as discussed below.

Survey Monkey: We use Survey Monkey to administer the survey. This policy only applies to our collection and use; it does not apply to Survey Monkey’s collection and use. You can find Survey Monkey’s privacy policy here.

Collection: Authors Alliance and the attorneys and consultants helping us in this proceeding (“We”) will collect only the personal information requested in the survey. We have designed the survey with the intention that your answers will be anonymous to us unless you provide your contact information.

Use: We will use the information you provide to us on the survey only to help with the petition that Authors Alliance and others submitted to the United States Copyright Office seeking an exemption to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, and subsequent filings in that proceeding. You can read more about this effort here and here.

If you provide your contact information, we may contact you to learn more about your story. We will not share any personally identifiable information you provide us with any third parties without first contacting you and obtaining your consent, unless required to do so by a subpoena or other legal process, or as set forth in part 3.B. of our main privacy policy.

Contact: If you have any questions about Authors Alliance’s privacy policy or our practices related to this survey, or if you would like to have us remove your survey response and/or personal information from our records, please feel free to contact us at:
