The Information You Provide
As you explore this web site, you will come across places in which I ask you to provide me voluntarily with information about yourself. In most of these instances I will ask for your first name and email address so that I can send you the specific information that you request, such as a newsletter or online subscription or purchase, o to enter you into a contest. If you choose to purchase an item that may be offered by me through my direct sales service, I will need to collect additional information for billing and shipping, such as your full name, home address and credit card information. All of these activities–the subscriptions, contests and on-line purchases–are purely voluntary; if you do not wish to reveal your name, email address or other information, you are free simply to ignore these offerings. If you decide to participate, then (subject to the final paragraph of this section) I will not use your name or email address for any purpose other than as stated, and will not sell or rent your name or address to third parties not affiliated with us. If you purchase an item that may be offered at this web site, I may share your credit card information with an independent third party service whose function is to verify the information you provide, and I will store and make available information about recent purchases made through this web site using your password. (Please note – I currently do not offer anything for sale through this website.)
At other places in this web site, I ask for your feedback, opinion or suggestions, and provide you with a link for emailing me your response. I may also ask for your zip code or city of residence to gather geographical information about the visitors to this web site. If you send your email to me, it will include your email address in the “From” line. But again (subject to the final paragraph of this section), I promise to use the email address I receive in this manner only for the purpose of responding to your questions or suggestions, and will not approach you with unsolicited offers or provide your email address to anyone else.
Finally, provided that you SUBSCRIBE/OPT IN, and then unless and until you UNSUBSCRIBE/OPT OUT, I may use your name and/or email address, and survey responses you have provided: for customer service purposes, to send you news about this web site and my books, and to give you the opportunity to participate in offers made by me and by my business partners and advertisers, as well as the publishers of my books. I may also share your personally identifying information with a third party in the event of a transfer of ownership or assets, or bankruptcy, by my owners. I may also disclose your personally identifying information as required or permitted by law, to protect the interests or safety of Rachel Amphlett or a third party, or in an emergency situation. I may share with third parties aggregated information that does not identify you personally and is not personally identifying information.
Your Access to Your Personally Identifying Information
If you would like to know the types of information that I collect from visitors to this web site, please contact me. If you would like to know what I have collected about you, please send me the activities that you participated in at this web site which requested personally identifying information and after reviewing the relevant databases, I will confirm whether it has collected such information about you. You may review personally identifying information about you in my records at any time provided you first give me proof of your identity. I will change any inaccuracies in the personally identifying information that pertains to you in response to a reasonable request, and/or end any direct communications with you, or even delete your personally identifying information altogether, except to the extent I am required to do otherwise under law.
Links to Other Sites
I may provide, or third parties may provide, at this web site, links to other web sites or resources. I have no control over such sites and resources. Such other sites do not necessarily follow my privacy policies, and may place their own cookies on your computer. This practice is standard on the Web, and I do not control cookies placed on your computer by third parties whose advertising or links appear on this web site. (Please note – I currently have no other websites advertising on this site, but I do often link to other authors and books.)
Security of Private Information
Parents and Guardians
I encourage you to get involved with your children’s online usage and to be aware of the activities in which they are participating. I also ask you to check here regularly to see what my latest policies are, particularly those relating to children.
You should be aware that if your children voluntarily disclose their names, email addresses or other information on bulletin boards or chat areas of web sites, such disclosures may result in unsolicited messages from other parties. I suggest that you discourage your child from providing such information on this web site or elsewhere unless you are confident that the information will not be misused.
If you have any concerns regarding privacy issues, please contact me.
