What personal data we collect and why we collect it
If visitor comments are allowed, when visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If uploading is allowed, when you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
Handwriting Success does not collect user identifiable information from its mobile applications sold via Apple App Store nor Google Play Store. We only have access to In-app subscription and purchase time, date and country information. End-users who supply app ratings or comments to the App Store or Google Play do so under the terms and privacy policies set forth on those platforms.
Information that you provide will only be used to service you better, and is never sold, traded, rented or released for any other purpose. We share your information only with our distributor, Allport Editions. We securely upload customer contact information to MailChimp.com for e-mail notices. If at any time you do not wish to receive email news from us, please contact us and let us know that you do not want to receive these updates. Or, you may unsubscribe when you receive an e-mail newsletter or at this link.
E-mail addresses and anonymous data collected as part of surveys by Handwriting Success, LLC, may be viewed by third party marketing firms contracted by Handwriting Success. These data are not traded or sold.
We consider as public and non-proprietary the text you enter when you create Do-It-Yourself worksheets. Therefore, we may use and retain this information to improve our products.
If comments are allowed, when you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.
If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
Anonymous visitor information is sent to Google Analytics via the GA Google Analytics WordPress plugin by PerishablePress.com.

With whom we share your data

How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website, we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
Contact form information and customer data are stored indefinitely beginning in 2012. We honor requests to delete names and contact information gathered by contact forms and customer purchase history.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal or security purposes, nor anonymous analytics data or anonymous Do-It-Yourself worksheet text.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
