Your privacy is important to us. We will never sell your personal contact information.
We’ll publicly credit your submissions with your name, but we’ll never publish your contact info.
Also, we use Google Analytics on this website to collect information about how our visitors are using and browsing the available content. This software records information for us like what website you came from to get here, how long you stay on our site, what kind of computer you’re using, and quite a bit more. This allows us to make better decisions about design, writing, and what content we show.
Occasionally, we will compile aggregate statistics about the number of visitors this site receives and browsers being used. No personally identifying data is included in this type of reporting, and all of our activity falls within the bounds of the Google Analytics Terms of Service.
We’ve got to have some ownership of the stories, images, and information you submit to us, but only to the extent that allows us to display those submissions on our website, use them in our promotions and designs, to print and sell books, and keep safe on our computers and servers.
That being said, we very much don’t like to think that “we own your images,” you do. You keep ownership of your photos and writing to use how you like. You’re just letting us do what we do for free and without fear of being sued. And for that, we thank you.
