Privacy Policy

Erin Harris Creative welcomes you to this site, erinharriswriting.com.

Your privacy is important to us. Accordingly, we have developed this policy in order for you to understand how we collect, use, communicate, and make use of personal information. 

When ​you access the http://erinharriswriting.com website, ​we will learn certain information about you during your visit. ​Like most commercial websites, our website u​ses a standard technology called "cookies" ​and server logs to collect information about how our site is used. Information gathered through cookies and server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent ​on our site, and the websites visited just before and just after our own, as well as your IP address.

​Cookies

A cookie is a very small text document, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier. When you visit a website, that site"s computer asks your computer for permission to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically designated for cookies. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser"s preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites. If you do not wish to have cookies placed on ​your computer, set your browsers to refuse cookies before using ​this website, with the drawback that certain features of ​this website may not function properly without the aid of cookies. 

Some of our affiliate partners may also use cookies. We do not control the collection or use of your information by ​such companies. If you have questions about their collection or use of information about you, contact ​such companies directly.

IP Addresses

IP addresses are used by your computer every time you are connected to the Internet. Your IP address is a number that is used by computers on the network to identify your computer. IP addresses are automatically collected by our web server as part of demographic and profile data known as “traffic data” so that data (such as the ​webpages you request) can be sent to you.

We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track users' movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. ​For systems administration, detecting usage patterns and troubleshooting purposes, our web servers automatically log standard access information including browser type, access times/open mail, URL requested, and referral URL. This information is not shared with third parties and is used only within this Company on a need-to-know basis. Any individually identifiable information related to this data will never be used in any way different​ from that stated above without your explicit permission.

Google Analytics

​We use Google® Analytics to track overall statistics about computer usage on our site. This information is not linked to individual customer information.

Email Information

If you choose to correspond with us through email, we may retain the content of your email messages together with your email address and our responses. We provide the same protections for these electronic communications that we employ in the maintenance of information received online, mail, and telephone. This also applies when you register for our website, sign up through any of our forms using your email address, or make a purchase on this site.
