Data Privacy Commitment

At Lean Library we understand that data privacy is critical to maintaining patrons’ trust in libraries, and libraries’ trust in the vendors they work with. In addition to the Privacy Policy here Lean Library and SAGE make these further commitments to librarians and end-users who have given their trust to us:

  • Lean Library will always gather as little personally identifiable information as possible. Currently, we collect none. If we were to choose to develop more personalized features that would require us to store personally identifiable data, those features will be an optional and opt in part of the service.
  • Lean Library only gathers as little usage data as is necessary to monitor the performance of the service, inform development work to improve the service and generate library level usage reports for the service.
  • Lean Library customers retain ownership of their data. Data captured will never be sold or transferred to any third party unless required by a court of law. It will not be used for any purpose other than those stated above.
