This privacy notice discloses the privacy practices for Our Websites and Store. This page informs you of our policies regarding the collection, use and disclosure of Personal Information we receive from users of the Site.
We use your Personal Information only for providing and improving the Site and to contact you when you send us an email. If you purchase from our online store we will use your personal information to complete the order and for shipping the product to you. By using the Site, you agree to the collection and use of information in accordance with this policy.
INFORMATION COLLECTION AND USE
While using our Site, we may ask you to provide us with certain personally identifiable information that can be used to contact or identify you. Personally identifiable information may include, but is not limited to your name and email address ("Personal Information”).
If you purchase from our online store our Site, we may ask you to provide us with certain personally identifiable information that can be used to contact or identify you. Personally identifiable information may include, but is not limited to your name, billing and shipping address, phone number and email address ("Personal Information").
Like many site operators, our web host may automatically collect information that your browser sends whenever you visit our Site ("Log Data”). This Log Data may include information such as your computer's Internet Protocol ("IP") address, web host, country, region/province/state, city, browser type, browser version, the pages of our Site that you visit, the time and date of your visit, the time spent on those pages and other statistics.
In addition, we may use services and/or software, such as Matomo Analytics (formerly Piwik), Google Analytics and Ecwid Shopping Cart that collect, monitor and analyze this information.
HOW LOG DATA INFORMATION IS USED
We may use your Log Data Information for the purpose of viewing the geographic location of visitors to our Site. This is very similar to when people would pin a post card or put a pin on a map to show they received mail from a different country, region, state province and city. We use the Access Log Report (Log Data Information) from our web host and extract country, region, province or state, city and web host. The IP address is then deleted and only the geographic and web host information remain on a list. The accuracy of the location is not very precise, in fact the software shoes our own IP address location approximately five (5) mile away from our actual city location. Our only interest in this information is to get a general idea of the location of our visitors because it is called the “world wide web.” If the author does a interview he wants to see if it has made an impact at the location of the interview. We will not sell this information to anyone. We make our profit by selling books not your information.
LOG DATA RETENTION
Access Logs (Log Data information) remain for fourteen (14) days and then they are automatically deleted from our web hosting provider. We delete Access Log reports at the end of each month.
Cookies are files with small amount of data, which may include an anonymous unique identifier. Cookies are sent to your browser from a web site and stored on your computer's hard drive.
Like many sites, we may use "cookies" to collect information. You can instruct your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, if you do not accept cookies, you may not be able to use some portions of our Site.
Information supplied by ordering from our store is needed for accounting to properly report Sales Tax and income as required by law. The information will be retained for as long as the current law requires.
After an order is shipped, received and a thank you notice is emailed, we do not send anymore communications to the customer unless the communication is initiated by the customer. We respond when a communication is received, we do not initiate the communication. We do not email advertising or newsletters.
We do not sell or share our customer list.
