The information that we receive and collect depends on what you do when you visit an Author’s Publishing, LLC site:
Automatically Collected Information. Some information is automatically received and sometimes collected from you when you visit our sites. We receive and collect the name of the domain and host from which you accessed the Internet; the Internet protocol (IP) address of the computer you are using; the browser software you use and your operating system; the date and time you access our site. This information s used to monitor usage of all our sites.
Information You Submit. When you want to buy a book, rate a book or submit a story, you will need to submit Personal Customer Information. Again, none of this information will be shared or sold. Credit card transactions, however, are handled by a third-party institution and their vendors, which receive the credit card number and other personal identifying information only to verify the credit card numbers and process transactions. These transactions are secure and your financial information will be encrypted using the Secure Sockets Layer protocol (SSL) with an encryption key length of 128-bits (the highest level commercially available).
