__about us
Amlap Publishing was established in 2003 to fill a gap in children's publishing, where much greater cultural diversity is required. We believe that it is crucial to help all children to understand and embrace who they are, and to appreciate their own and each other's cultural heritage, so that they can grow into confident, positive, culturally thinking members of society. Amlap aims to redress the balance by publishing material on African history, geography and culture..

The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for our website:

What Information does Amlap Publishing gather:
We strive to provide our members with a superior, personalised and customised Internet experience. To do so, Amlap Publishing gathers information through optional, voluntary registration about each of our members' geographic location, personal interests, and preferences, all the while ensuring the privacy protection of that information. We also collect navigational information, by using a feature of your browser called "cookies".

Through our site's registration form, periodic online surveys and contests we ask you to voluntarily give us contact information such as your name and e-mail address, as well as demographic information (e.g. age, gender, income) and might also ask for financial information like account or credit card numbers, when necessary. Additional personalisation features might in certain areas of the site enable you to further customise content areas or topics of specific interest to you.

Our servers automatically collect information about which sites users visit and which pages are viewed within our sites, by using a feature of your browser called "cookie" which assigns a random number, or "User ID," to your browser. The cookie automatically identifies your computer, when you visit the site. We also use cookies placed by third party servers to target the advertising delivered to you. This practice is common in Internet advertising. We only identify the computer that is used to access the site. Unless you specifically tell us, we will never know who you are, even though we assign your computer a cookie. Internet browsers offer you the option to generally refuse to accept cookies. You should understand that certain areas of this site might not function properly if you set your browser to refuse cookies.

We also collect "Log Files" to analyse the traffic on our advertisements, develop member patterns and derive basic statistics. The "Log Files" are collected solely for internal use and will not be passed on to Third Parties" unless it is collected for a promotion or event.

Amlap Publishing uses the information voluntarily given to us as a means to tailor parts of our service to your needs. Some of these personalised services are made available directly by us, while others are offered by our content partners. We also use the information in order to analyze and evaluate member preferences, comments, and suggestions of Amlap Publishing's offerings in order to improve the present and future versions of our website.

In addition, at your discretion, we will send you the Amlap Publishing's Naija Konnections Newsletter, which provides you with information about new products, services, or special promotions. In each newsletter, we will also include instructions on how to unsubscribe to future communications of this type.
