Privacy Policy

WordFarm takes your privacy seriously. We will not sell, rent or share your personal information with any other organizations or individuals for commercial purposes.

WordFarm will, from time to time, update this privacy and security policy as necessary by law, to keep up with new technologies or to better serve our customers. Please review this page regularly to stay informed of our most current guidelines and procedures.

Why We Collect Personal Information

WordFarm stores your personal information to respond customer support and billing inquiries. We also use this information to keep you up to date on new authors, noteworthy events and other news related to the mission of WordFarm.

How We Collect Personal Information

We collect information about you when you correspond with us, request a service, subscribe to an email list, participate in a survey, answer a call for ideas/proposals, or make a purchase from our online store.

When you visit our website, our web server automatically logs information such as what browser software, computer platform and internet IP address you are using. We use this information to improve the display and delivery of content to you. We also use this data to study traffic patterns on our site so that we can make the site more useful.

When We Disclose Personal Information

WordFarm staff members use your personal information to complete online purchases or to respond to your requests. Additionally, we may disclose some of your personal information (name, address, telephone number) to the United States Postal Service or shipping companies so that they can deliver your purchases made in our online store. Finally, we may disclose your personal information when required by law or legal process or when necessary to protect the rights, property or safety of WordFarm, our users or the general public.

How We Protect Your Personal Information

WordFarm uses physical, electronic and managerial procedures to secure the personal information you send us. You should also take reasonable precautions to protect your personal information: change your passwords often, choose a combination of letters and numbers, and use a secure browser. Also, you should not include payment information such as credit card numbers in any email messages unless you and the recipient are using PGP or a similar method of encryption.

The WordFarm online store uses industry-standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption on all pages where personal information is entered or displayed. To make purchases from our online store, you must use an SSL-enabled browser. This protects the confidentiality of your personal information during transmission over the Internet. Information you provide us when making a purchase in our online store is stored in a secure database.

Please remember that any personal information you disclose in WordFarm chat rooms, discussion forums, message boards, and/or news groups is by law considered public, not private.

Access to Your Personal Information

You may access, review and update the personal information included in your WordFarm online store profile at any time. Simply make changes as needed before completing each new transaction.

We will also provide you, upon request, with a summary of any personal information we have collected from you. Please contact us with your request.

Our Ongoing Commitment to Privacy

If you feel that we are not complying with this privacy and security policy, please contact us. We would like the opportunity to respond to your concern and correct any errors in our handling of your personal information.

We have made no changes to this policy since January 15, 2005.
