The National Book Foundation does not rent, sell or exchange information about its Web site visitors. Access to information about our site’s visitors is restricted to the National Book Foundation. We accept or collect only the information that is needed to administer business, provide service and communicate offers that we truly believe will be of interest to our visitors.
Type of Information Collected
The National Book Foundation’s Web site automatically logs certain "non-personally identifiable" information about visits to our Web site. This information is used for system administration and for producing usage statistics.
Promotional E-mail and Newsletter Policy
If you give permission, the National Book Foundation may use personally identifiable information you submit for promotional purposes. For example, the Foundation may send e-mails to inform users of new author programs or other events we think might be of interest to them. But, you will not receive such communications unless you have willingly provided the personal information required.
If, at any time, visitors wish to be removed from any list the National Book Foundation will be glad to delete their e-mail addresses from existing files.
How the Information Is Used
Any personally identifiable information provided to the National Book Foundation is maintained by and accessible only to the Foundation unless the Foundation explicitly states otherwise. The Foundation will not release information on the use of specific Internet or Web site resources by members of the public except as required by law.
We would like to be able to tell you that the information you provide us is absolutely safe. Unfortunately, several well-publicized instances of computer security breaches make it impossible for anyone to be so confident. The most we can tell you is that we take reasonable steps to protect the information you provide us from theft, alteration or unauthorized inspection. In addition, in rare instances, we will disclose private information to necessary parties to protect our site or other visitors.
Parents should remind their children to ask their permission before providing personal information to any Web site or purchasing any products or services online. The Foundation urges all parents to participate in their children's exploration of the Internet and to teach them about protecting their personal information while online.
The National Book Foundation does not intend to accept or collect personally-identifiable information (name, address, telephone number, or e-mail address) from children (individuals under the age of 13) or use that information for marketing purposes.
If a child has provided the Foundation with an e-mail address, we ask that a parent or guardian of the child contact firstname.lastname@example.org if they would like the e-mail address deleted from Foundation lists. The National Book Foundation will use reasonable efforts to delete their e-mail addresses from existing files.
