Voluntary Submission of Information
Our policy is simple: We collect no personal information about you unless you choose to provide that information to us. For example, on some of our web pages we provide forms that let you voluntarily submit personal information such as e-mail address or name. We may use the information you share with us to contact you regarding your activity on our site. All submitted information is used only for the expressed purposes for which it is intended. We will not sell or rent this information to anyone.
Safety and Security of Information
No one can guarantee perfect website security. We take precautions and use industry standard tools to store and help protect the information you share with us, such as WordPress and Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). Information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by checking for a lock icon in your browser address bar and looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the Web page. If you wish, you can contact us to have all data connected to you deleted from our website. We’ll be sorry to see you go, but that’s your right.
Cookies & Analytics
Cookies are tiny pieces of information stored by the web browser on the computer you are using. These cookies help us to anonymously gather traffic data, display information more effectively and personalize your experience while using our site. For example, we measure visitors to our website using Google Analytics. This records what pages you view within our site, how you arrived at our site and some basic information about your computer. All of that information is anonymous – so we don’t know who you are, only that somebody visited our site. The accumulated information from thousands of visitors helps us understand what parts of our sites are doing well, what pages are popular on our site and so on. We use this information to make our website better.
Links to Other Sites
We may provide links to external websites. Please be aware that when you leave our website you will be going to sites that are beyond our control and standards. These external websites have their own privacy policies and may collect or ask for additional information when you visit. We suggest checking these sites or contacting them directly for information on their privacy policies. Ads appearing on our website may be delivered by advertising services. We try to choose reputable advertisers from these services and find products that may interest you. These advertising services also store and collect anonymous information to analyze ad traffic. For example, if you purchase a product through an ad on our site, we may make a little money. The advertising service needs to track our ad traffic so they know the purchase originated on our site. We also analyze this ad traffic to help choose products to offer you. The ad traffic information we get is anonymous – so we don’t know who you are, only that somebody clicked an ad link on our site.
Messages You Send to Us
If you decide to send us an e-mail or use a contact form, the message will usually contain your return e-mail address. If you include personally identifying information in your message because you want us to address issues specific to your situation, we may use that information in responding to your request. Please be aware that e-mail is not totally secure against interception. Send us (and others) only the information necessary to help process your request.
We use industry-standard payment providers such as PayPal to process payments for our products. These payment providers will have access to your payment information. When paying by credit card, we never have any access to your credit card details. We share information with these companies only to the extent necessary to process payments you make through our website.
Surveys & Contests
We may request information via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary. You may choose whether or not to participate and disclose information. Information requested may include contact information (such as a shipping address for prizes) or demographic information (such as age level). Survey information will be used for monitoring or improving use and satisfaction of this site.
