These linked sites are only for your convenience and therefore you access them at your own risk.

How do we protect visitor information?

We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information. Your personal information is contained behind secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of persons who have special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential. When you place orders or access your personal information, we offer the use of a secure server. All sensitive/credit information you supply is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted into our databases to be only accessed as stated above.


Do we use "cookies"?

Yes. Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer's hard drive through your Web browser (if you allow) that enables the site's or service provider's systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information. For instance, we use cookies to help us remember and process the items in your shopping cart. They are also used to help us understand your preferences based on previous or current site activity, which enables us to provide you with improved services. We also use cookies to help us compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interaction so that we can offer better site experiences and tools in the future.

We may contract with third-party service providers to assist us in better understanding our site visitors. These service providers are not permitted to use the information collected on our behalf except to help us conduct and improve our business.

You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You do this through your browser (like Netscape Navigator or Internet Explorer) settings. Each browser is a little different, so look at your browser Help menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookies. If you turn cookies off, you won't have access to many features that make your site experience more efficient and some of our services will not function properly. However, you can still place orders over the telephone by contacting customer service.


Do we disclose the information we collect to outside parties?

We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information unless we provide you with advance notice, except as described below. The term "outside parties" does not include Chthaeus Press. It also does not include website hosting partners and other parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others' rights, property, or safety.

However, non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.

We respect the private nature of the information you provide to us and accept the responsibility of protecting that information. This privacy policy may be changed at any time, and we therefore encourage you to revisit this page periodically. If you want to communicate with us about our Policy, please e-mail us at web@chelseagreen.com. Chelsea Green Publishing will never sell or rent your information to third parties. The email address you provide to Chelsea Green Publishing may be used by Chelsea Green Publishing for any reason including, but not limited to, editorial purposes, site communication, and notification of changes to our site. We will not sell or rent your email address to anyone for any reason. At times it is necessary for Chelsea Green Publishing to furnish your personal information to our third party service partners, such as when conducting an e-commerce transaction or sending our e-newsletters. We collect the e-mail addresses of registered users, but this information is used solely for the purpose of our e-mail newsletters and gift reminders, and for no other mailings. To remove your e-mail address from the newsletter subscriber list, please send an email to web@chelseagreen.com Security Information that we collect is stored on secure servers using standard security procedures and practices appropriate to the nature of the information in an effort to protect information from unauthorized access, destruction, use, modification, or disclosure. We have taken every reasonable precaution to store the data that is collected in a secure manner. We use secure socket layer (SSL) to encrypt your data during transmission to us, but no data transmissions over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Consequently, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make reasonable efforts to ensure security on our end to protect your information from unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. However, please note that this is not a guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed by breach of such firewalls and other server security measures. During an online order, it is necessary for Chelsea Green Publishing to send your name, address, telephone number, and credit information to Authorize.net for payment processing. This transaction is conducted securely and in accordance with Authorize.net's specified procedures. The information we send to Authorize.net is protected by Authorize.net's own privacy policy. Under no circumstances, will Authorize.net share your information with any third-party. Please review their policy here: http://www.authorize.net/company/privacy/ We use Bronto to send out our various newsletters. If you are subscribed to a newsletter, you will always be given the opportunity to unsubscribe immediately and you will not receive any newsletters from that point forward. Under no circumstances will Chelsea Green or Bronto share your personal information with any third-party. Please review their privacy policy here: http://bronto.com/terms/privacy-policy Non-personally identifiable information (as identified above) may be shared with our advertisers or marketing partners. Your personally identifiable information will never be shared with them. Automatic Data Collection When a visitor requests a page of information from a Web site, information about the request is automatically stored in a log file. This information includes the Internet address of the computer making the request, the time and date of the request, the type of Web browser being used, and sometimes, the page from which the visitor is coming. The information does not contain the visitor's name or e-mail address since the visitor's browser does not provide this information to the Web server. Chelsea Green Publishing analyzes these log files to learn about how visitors are using the content of the site. This information is used to allocate resources effectively and improve the content of our site. Voluntary Registration Certain sections of Chelsea Green Publishing require that visitors register by providing an e-mail address that is recorded in databases on our server. We consider the following, among other things, to be personally identifiable information: first and last name, e-mail address, street address and phone number. Volunteered information is kept strictly confidential. Chelsea Green Publishing does not share or sell personally identifiable information to other companies. However, information that is voluntarily provided may be used internally. Additionally, Chelsea Green Publishing may choose, on occasion, to include third-party offers in our mailings. We maintain appropriate and reasonable safeguards to ensure the integrity, security, and privacy of the information in our possession. You may opt not to be included in the e-mail announcements or mailings when you register for one of our offerings. If a particular registration form does not have this option, or, if you'd like to be removed from our lists for any reason, notify Chelsea Green directly by e-mailing web@chelseagreen.com. Please include your name, e-mail address so that we can effectively remove you from the database. Cookies A cookie is a small piece of information that a Web server asks your browser to store on the hard drive of your computer. Your browser later presents the information back to the Web server. In its simplest form, a cookie is just an identifying number. A number of functions on the website do use cookies to enable certain features.
