What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
 
Contact forms

When submitting a contact form your name, phone number, and answers to questions asked are kept for customer service purposes. Information submitted is not used for marketing purposes like newsletters etc. When personal data is captured when someone submits a contact form, we receive and store any information you enter on our Site.

Payments and billing information

We do not take or store any payment or billing information. We use a third party plugin called wpbooklist to direct you to other vendors such as Amazon, Barns and Noble and Books-a-Million for any purchases.
