You’ve reached the privacy policy of Emmy Grace Books, which discloses the privacy practices for the site http://www.mleightonbooks.com. This privacy notice applies solely to information collected by this website, except where otherwise stated. It will notify you of the following:

  • What information I collect;

  • How it can be corrected;

  • How it is secured;

  • How policy changes will be communicated; and

  • How to address concerns over misuse of personal data.

 

Information Collection, Use, and Sharing

I am the sole owners of the information collected on this site. I only have the right to collect information that you voluntarily give me via email or other direct contact from you. I will not sell or rent this information to anyone.

I will use your information to respond to you regarding the reason you contacted/shared your information with me. I will not share your information with any third party outside of my organization, other than as necessary to fulfill your request, e.g., to ship an order.

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

Your Access to and Control Over Information

You may opt out of any future contacts from me at any time. You can do the following at any time by contacting us via the email address or phone number provided on my website:

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

  • Change/correct any data I have about you.

  • Have me delete any data I have about you.

  • Express any concern you have about my use of your data

Orders

If at any time I offer items for purchase on my site, I may request such information as your name, shipping address, and email address for purposes of fulfilling your request and reaching you in the event there is trouble processing an order.  This information is only used for purposes of filling your orders. 

Sharing

I use an outside shipping company to ship orders, and a PayPal to bill users for goods and services. These companies do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes beyond filling your order.

Security

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

I encourage my users to be aware when they leave this site and to read the privacy statements of any other site that collects personally identifiable information.

From time-to-time this site requests information via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and you may choose whether or not to participate and therefore disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code, age level).

Notification of Changes

I reserve the right to modify this Privacy Policy at any time. If I decide to change my Privacy Policy, I will post those changes to this Privacy Policy and any other places I deem appropriate, so that you are aware of what information I collect, how I use it, and under what circumstances, if any, I disclose it. If I make material changes to this Privacy Policy, I will notify you here, by email, or by means of a notice on my home page, at least thirty (30) days prior to the implementation of the changes.

“Do Not Track” signals.


Some browsers allow you to automatically notify websites you visit not to track you using a “Do Not Track” signal. There is no consensus among industry participants as to what “Do Not Track” means in this context. Like many websites and online services, I currently do not alter my practices when I receive a “Do Not Track” signal from a visitor’s browser. To find out more about “Do Not Track,” you may wish to visit www.allaboutdnt.com.

Privacy Policy
Cookie Policy
WHAT’S A COOKIE?

A cookie is a small text file that a website saves on your computer or mobile device when you visit the site. It enables the website to remember your actions and preferences (such as login, language, font size and other display preferences, or items in online shopping carts) over a period of time, so you don’t have to keep re-entering that information whenever you come back to the site or browse from one page to page. Not all cookies collect information that identifies you, though. Some just collect general information such as how users arrive at and use a website, which helps website owners evaluate and find ways to improve features and content.

How This Site Uses Cookies

A cookie also may be placed and interact with your personal information when you sign up for my newsletter, at which time you are asked to verify in two ways that you are allowing us to contact you via email.  The following are cookies used and brief explanations of each:
