Golden Girl Press, LLC is the sole owner of the information collected from our users on this site. Golden Girl Press, LLC does not share this information in any way with any other person, business or entity. This privacy statement concerns only this site.
We reserve the right to disclose your personally identifiable information if required by law and if we believe there is a truly compelling reason to disclose such information. We’re big believers in the right to free speech and the right to personal privacy.
Information Collection and Use
Signing up for the newsletter requires your e-mail address only. Webmasters.com (our Web-host) collects this information in a database for us. We access the list of e-mail addresses when sending out newsletters. Newsletters are currently in a really pretty HTML format and often contains Web links. Each newsletter contains an opt-out option, or you can opt-out by sending a message and your e-mail address to:
optout [AT] theinternetescortshandbook [DOT] com
The contact form does not collect any more information from you than sending an e-mail through your own e-mail client. We do ask a question important to our marketing efforts, but this question is optional.
The contact form is sent through a generic e-mail address, where the message is then forwarded to the appropriate person. Part of the reason for this is to frustrate spambots. The other reason is that we have not yet implemented a contact form that will mail different addresses depending on your needs. We’re not yet that sophisticated.
The form is merely for convenience. E-mails through the form will not be answered any more swiftly than e-mails through your own e-mail client. This is also an effect to make contact more accessible since not everyone has access to their e-mail client while browsing the site.
Though IP addresses are collected from the form (in case we have to block an IP address for spam or harassment), no other information is collected other than what you put into the form.
Ordering Online, By Mail, Phone or Fax (for consumers)
When ordering, you must trust us, our fulfillment center (QuickPick Distribution) and/or CCNow with a certain amount of personal information. We will need contact information (such as name, mailing address and phone number) as well as financial information (such as credit card number and expiration date). If you do not wish to order with a credit card, then please order by mail. Mail orders require the same basic contact information, along with a money order or cashier’s check (no personal checks). If you have questions about using CCNow for ordering, please visit their Web site: www.CCNow.com or call their customer-service line: 1-877-CCNOW-77.
We, our fulfillment center and/or CCNow use this information for billing and order-fulfillment purposes. If there is an issue with your order we will use this information to contact you. We and our fulfillment center save this information for inventory and accounting purposes. We and our fulfillment center do not share your ordering information in any way with anyone. Nor will you be contacted once your order is fulfilled.
If you’re concerned about your personal ordering information being recorded in some way, we suggest ordering by mail using a money order (signed in a name other than your own), with only a shipping address listed. This address does not have to be yours but obviously you must be able to receive mail at that address in whatever name you send us. Of course, using shipping information that is not your own and declining to include other contact information means that it will be difficult for us to refund your money or track you down if an issue with the order arises. This is your choice.
Ordering Through Stores
If you make a wholesale order directly from Golden Girl Press, LLC, the ordering policy is the same as ordering online. For wholesale rates, please contact:
wholesale [AT] goldengirlpress [DOT] com
As is true of most Web sites, our server gathers certain information automatically and stores it in log files. This information includes IP addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), operating system, date/time stamp, referring/exit pages, and clickstream data. This information makes up our Web statistics. (This information is commonly gathered by e-commerce sites.)
We use this information to analyze trends, administer the site, track user movements around the site and gather demographic information about our user base as a whole.
We make no effort to link this automatically-collected data to personally identifiable information. We are interested in studying what does and doesn’t work with our site, not in tracking down each visitor.
For a number of legal reasons, we have been advised not to allow comments on the blog. Since you cannot comment on the blog, no more personal information is collected when you visit the blog than visiting any other page on this site. This policy will change if and when we allow comments on the blog.
Links to Other Sites
This Web site contains links to other sites that are not owned or controlled by Golden Girl Press, LLC in any way. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of any other site.
We encourage you to be aware when you leave this site and, if you have concerns, to read the privacy information of each and every Web site that collects your information.
You should be aware that no online transaction can be guaranteed to be 100% safe. This site is a low-security risk to you because there are few places where you enter sensitive, personal information.
The online shopping cart used by CCNow is their own and uses SSL technology when handling your ordering information.
When we finally hit the big-time and sell out for millions of dollars, your customer information and the newsletter e-mail address list will be among the assets transferred. You will be notified of such an event occurring (don’t stay up at night worrying about it, though) via e-mail newsletter and an announcement will be made on the site itself well in advance of any change in ownership or control of your personal information.
