Here at Heart Ally Books, we value your privacy.
We use SSL (encryption) to protect your data in transit to and from the site as well as robust security software to protect the integrity of this site, and in turn your data.
The only information we store is information that you provide freely:
We collect your name, IP address, and email address so that we can send you infrequent updates about what is going on in our world. Want to be removed from this list? Click unsubscribe at the bottom of any newsletter.
In addition, the newsletters do send a message back to the website when they are opened. This helps us to better design future content.
To allow for discussion, you have the opportunity to post comments on this website. The information collected includes your name, email address, ip address, and your comments. If you ever wish to have your comments removed, send us a quick note through the contact form and we’ll remove them.
Website Activity Tracking
Our hosting company does track basic data on those who access the site. The data stored in this manner is not traceable back to any individual and is deliberately generalized. It provides us with information related to the country of origin of site visitors, what browser they are using, and how long they stayed on the site. If you want to read about what we use, here is a good article.
In addition, Google and other search engines track website visitors. This is something that happens whenever you use the internet. If you do not want to be tracked, please consider using a private browser window. The information that these search engines store is not traceable to one individual and so is very generic in nature. We do not store this information, however we do occasionally look at it so that we can provide more relevant content.
Web beacons, also known as clear gif technology, or action tags, may be used to assist in delivering the cookie. This technology is a tool used to compile aggregated statistics about web site usage, such as how many visitors clicked on key elements (such as links or graphics) on a Web page, blog or a newsletter. We may share aggregated site statistics with partner companies who have provided customization software for use on the site. No private or personal information is transferred in this way.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Many Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can modify your browser settings to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of this or other Web sites you visit.
Changes to this Statement
We may occasionally update this privacy statement. When we do, we will also revise the “last updated” date at the top of the privacy statement. For material changes to this privacy statement, we will notify you by placing a prominent notice on the home page of the site. We encourage you to periodically review this privacy statement to stay informed about how we are helping to protect the personal information we collect. Your continued use of the service constitutes your agreement to this privacy statement and any updates.
