The Body Window recognizes that everyone is concerned about maintaining their privacy on the web.
All websites collect and use information that is personal. I hope that I can explain how this works in more detail, so that you are assured that I use safeguards to protect you and your information. Hopefully, on this webpage, I will give you sufficient facts that will help you make an informed decision as to whether or not you will share personal information with the Body Window website.
You have my promise that I will do everything in my ability to maintain the highest standards in all that I do to ensure that your personal information is protected at all times. I pledge to you that I will go beyond web standard for fairness, decency and integrity in all my operations!
Under usual circumstances, the only personal information that I collect from you is on a voluntary basis. Things such as your first name (often optional) and your email address is collected when you sign up for my free newsletter. This information is also collected if you use my "Contact Me" form, in addition to other information, such as your last name, web site url, city and country. All this information is given on a voluntary basis, and the ONLY thing needed for a personal reply from me, is a valid email address.
I also collect communications from my readers via email and will use any comments or ideas to enhance my content on the Body Window website. All of this information is always used anonymously, unless the author gives me permission to use his/her name.
It is possible that I may run a contest or sweepstakes, or do a survey of interests from my readers. In this case, participation and all personal information is collected on a voluntary basis.
All personal information I receive, I review personally. I may use reader-supplied information to notify them of updates, add them to my Body Moments newsletter or respond to any reader's inquiries. I do this, if the reader expresses interest in the subject matter.
After I review any personal information, I either discard it or store it in the website's files. I only use personal information for my website's internal use and I promise to never, ever provide your information to or to sell it to third parties of any kind!
