Information Collection, Use, and Sharing

We are the sole owners of the information collected on this site. We only have access to/collect information that you voluntarily give us via email or other direct contact from you. We will not sell or rent this information to anyone.

This site collects your name and email address. Forms ask for a first name only, but no technical limitation stops anyone from entering their middle and/or last names, also. Thus, the most information this site will collect on anyone is their full name and email address. WordPress may also collect information like IP addresses in comments, but the site owner does not retain this information.

We use names and email addresses to send emails about books. We may also use your information to respond to you, regarding the reason you contacted us. We will not share your information with any third party outside of our organization, other than as necessary to fulfill your request, e.g. to ship an order.

Unless you ask us not to, we may contact you via email in the future to tell you about specials, new products or services, or changes to this privacy policy.

  • See what data we have about you, if any.

Security

We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.

Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a lock icon in the address bar and looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the Web page.

While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. For more specific information about servers, data centers, and employees, contact this site’s host, Bluehost.
