Privacy Notice

The information you submit to Nashville Public Library is confidential. Your library card application information, online account settings (including e-mail address), and checkout records fall into this category. We will not share this information or any other personal information about library customers with outside parties unless required to do so by a court order.

Information Collection

The library and its third party vendors do keep track of how users navigate our web sites: which pages are most frequently used, popular search paths, domains of users (to find out where our users are visiting from), and other information that helps us make adjustments and improve our service. This information is not shared, and is used by us for general and not individual statistics.

The library uses Google Analytics and a Google Analytics Advertiser Feature called Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting to count website visitors. If you would like to opt out of Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting, you can use Google's available opt-out tools.

Cookies

Nashville Public Library uses cookies to maintain authentication when you are logged in to or return to our site. Many of the third party vendors we use to provide services like databases and audiobooks use cookies, as well. These vendors do not have access to your account or PC. These cookies do not affect your PC or its settings in any way, and are used only to make navigating some of our services possible. Some cookies used on the library website, including Google Analytics, will remain on your computer after your Internet session. Learn more about cookies and protecting your privacy online at OnGuard Online.

Linked Websites

Nashville Public Library’s website includes many links to outside sources. Those sites have different privacy statements and the Library’s notice does not apply. Individuals should always take care before sharing personal information, credit card numbers, or other sensitive information via the Internet.
