Information Collection and Use
Read&Click (a division of WinslowHouse International, Inc.) is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement. Read&Click collects information from our users at several different points on our Web site.
In some of our activities, users are given the opportunity to complete and submit to Read&Click creative writing exercises; others allow users to share recipes. In order to make such submissions, a user is required to give their contact information (such as name and email address). This information is used to maintain records concerning the origin of these submissions.
A cookie is a piece of data stored on the userís hard drive containing information about the user. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on our site. If a user rejects the cookie, they may still use our site.
We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track userís movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.
We will share aggregated demographic information with our partners and advertisers. This is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person.
This Web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that we, Read&Click, are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every Web site that collects personally identifiable information.

Surveys & Contests
From time-to-time our site requests information from users via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and shipping address) and demographic information (such as zip code or age level). Contact information will be used to notify the winners and award prizes. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site.
If a user elects to use our referral service for sharing information from our Web site with a friend, we ask the user for the friendís name and email address. Read&Click will automatically send the friend a one-time email containing the information selected. Read&Click stores this information for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email. The friend may contact Read&Click at www.readandclick.com/contactus.cfm to request the removal of this information from our database.
This Web site takes every precaution to protect our usersí information. When users submit sensitive information via the Web site, their information is protected both online and off-line. All of our usersí information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job are granted access to personally identifiable information. Furthermore, ALL employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices. Every quarter, as well as any time new policies are added, our employees are notified and/or reminded about the importance we place on privacy, and what they can do to ensure our customersí information is protected. Finally, the servers that we store personally identifiable information on are kept in a secure environment.
If you have any questions about the security at our Web site, you can send us an e-mail.
