Your privacy is important to us. At Wild Rose Press, we follow these fundamental principles:

  • We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it.
  • We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.

We use your Personal Information only for providing and improving the Site. By using the Site, you agree to the collection and use of information in accordance with this policy.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Wild Rose Press collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Wild Rose Press’ purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how visitors use its website. From time to time, Wild Rose Press may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Wild Rose Press collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. Wild Rose Press only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Information Collection and Use

While using our Site, we may ask you to provide us with certain personally identifiable information that can be used to contact or identify you. Personally identifiable information may include, but is not limited to your name (“Personal Information”).

Visitors to Wild Rose Press may interact with Wild Rose Press in ways that require us to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information depends on the nature of the interaction. For those who purchase an item, we collect their contact information. In each case, Wild Rose Press collects such information only as is necessary to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Wild Rose Press. Wild Rose Press does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. Visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the understanding that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Purchases and Payment Information Collection and Use. If you purchase items from CrestedButteStories.com, we request certain personally identifiable information from you on our payment form, including, but not limited to, name, email address, phone number, and mailing address. We currently use PayPal to process payment of orders. If you choose to use PayPal to make purchases through the Site, you will be directed to the PayPal website and provide your payment information directly to PayPal. PayPal’s privacy policy applies to the information you provide on the PayPal website. The credit card information that you provide is encrypted and transmitted directly to PayPal. We do not store your credit card information and do not control and are not responsible for PayPal or its collection or use of your information.

Log Data & Aggregated Statistics

Like many site operators, we collect information that your browser sends whenever you visit our Site (“Log Data”).

This Log Data may include information such as your computer’s Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type, browser version, the pages of our Site that you visit, the time and date of your visit, the time spent on those pages and other statistics.

In addition, we may use third party services such as Google Analytics that collect, monitor and analyze such data about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, we may monitor the most popular pages on our website or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. Wild Rose Press may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, aggregate data does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Wild Rose Press discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Wild Rose Press Computer’s behalf or to provide services available at Wild Rose Press’ websites. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Wild Rose Press’ website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Wild Rose Press will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Wild Rose Press discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Wild Rose Press believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Wild Rose Press, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of Wild Rose Press’ website and have supplied your email address, we may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Wild Rose Press and our products. We primarily use our website to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Wild Rose Press takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
