This policy describes the personal information we collect through this website and how we collect and use that information.

We created this privacy statement to demonstrate our firm and continuing commitment to the privacy of personal information provided by those visiting and interacting with this website. The following discloses our information-gathering and dissemination practices for this website, and by visiting www.AroundTheWritersTable.com you are consenting to our privacy policy.

The terms “we,” “us,” “our,” “me,” “company,” and “Around the Writer’s Table” refer to the business entity Around the Writer’s Table. The term the “Site” refers to AroundTheWritersTable.com. The terms “user,” “you,” and “your” refer to Site visitors, clients, and any other users of the Site. The term “personal information” is defined as information you voluntarily provide to us, which personally identifies you and/or your contact information, such as your name, phone number, and email address. This Privacy Policy applies to all Site visitors, clients, and all other users of the Site. By using the Site or Service, you agree to this Privacy Policy, without modification, and acknowledge reading it.

Information Collection, Use, and Sharing

When you visit this Site you may provide us with two types of information:

(1) personal information you knowingly choose to disclose that is collected on an individual basis, and

(2) website use information collected on an aggregate basis as you and others browse our website.

We only have access to/collect information that you voluntarily give to us via email or via other direct contact from you. We do not and will not rent or sell this information to anyone. The data we collect include:

  1. Personal Information (provided by you directly to us)
  2. Registration Information (information you provide as part of any registration process)
  3. Email Information (We may retain the content of your email messages together with your email address and our responses.)
  4. Name, Email Address, and Social Media Profile used to post on our blog via a third-party provider.
  5. Website Use Information (Information gathered through cookies and web server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at our website, and the websites visited just before and just after our website.)

We use your information to respond to you related to the reason[s] you contacted us. None of these data are ever shared with third-party organizations, although they may be stored on third-party servers such as our website hosting company’s.

Those who work for us may see your info as they do data entry or are in email communication to you, such as verifying your registration for trainings and retreats or answering your questions, for instance. Because you have given us your information, we may contact you via email in the future to tell you about specials, new opportunities, new works, trainings and services, or changes to this privacy policy.

Cookies

We may send cookies to your computer in order to uniquely identify your browser and improve the quality of our service. The term “cookies” refers to small pieces of information that a website sends to your computer’s hard drive while you are viewing the Site. Cookies, in conjunction with our web server’s log files, allow us to calculate the aggregate number of people visiting our website and which parts of the Site are most popular. This helps us gather feedback to constantly improve our Site and better serve our clients.

Cookies do not allow us to gather any personal information about you and we do not intentionally store any personal information that your browser provided to us in your cookies. We may use both session cookies (which expire once you close your browser) and persistent cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them). You have the ability to accept or decline cookies using your web browser settings. If you choose to disable cookies, some areas of the Site may not work properly or at all. 

Data Security

We take precautions to protect all information given to us both online and offline.

When we receive sensitive information (such as credit card data) on our Site, that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a lock icon in the address bar and looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the Web page.

While encryption is used to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need information to perform a specific job are granted access to personally identifiable information. Additionally, the computers and servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.

We will do everything in our legal power to protect your privacy and your data, but please note that the laws on holding personal data in the United States may be less stringent than the laws of your country of residence or citizenship. Though we maintain security measures to protect your personal information from unauthorized access, misuse, or disclosure, no exchange of data over the Internet can be guaranteed as 100% secure.

While we make every effort to protect your personal information shared with us through our Site, you acknowledge that the personal information you voluntarily share with us through this Site could be accessed or tampered with by a third-party and you release us from any and all claims arising out of or related to the use of such intercepted information in any unauthorized manner. As a result, you should exercise caution before you make such disclosures.

Third-Party Links

The Site may contain links to or from third-party websites. Except as otherwise discussed in this Privacy Policy, this document only addresses the use and disclosure of information we collect from you on our Site; we are not responsible for the practices employed by websites linked to or from our website or the information or content contained therein. Your personal information will never be shared with unrelated third parties.

Legally Compelled Disclosure of Information

Hopefully rarely, we may disclose information when legally compelled to do so by either legal warrant or when we believe the law requires it for the protection of our legal rights. We may also disclose account information when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may be violating our Terms of Service or to protect the safety of our users and the Public.

Your Access to and Control over Your Information

You may opt out of any future contacts from us at any time. You may also contact us via the email address or phone number given on our website in order to:
