Please be assured that any information or personal details that you provide me will be kept in the strictest confidence, and used only for the purpose for which you have provided me with the information. I will never pass your details onto a third party.

Cookies and Tracking

Google AdSense advertising is used on this website, including their new Interest Based Advertising option which utilises a DoubleClick DART Cookie to serve the advertisements you see here. This may include information (not including your name, address, email address or telephone number) about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide advertisements of interest to you. For information about opting out of this process visit the Google ad and content network privacy policy page.

I, personally, don't use cookies to track visitors to this site. The only information I collect regarding visits to this site are the standard statistics regarding the pages viewed as provided by my hosting company or information you provide me via email or comments or by filling out any of the forms on this site.

Safety of documents or manuscripts you provide

Any documents, files, or manuscripts sent to me for critiquing and/or error checking will be held in strictest confidence and will never be shared with third parties. However, due to the nature of the Internet, I cannot guarantee the safety of your files during the transfers between our systems.

Your files will be deleted from my system after I have sent you my critique.

Safety of information you provide

The practice of email harvesting is rife on the Internet. I have put up some precautions, but I cannot guarantee the safety of any information that you provide me via the forms on this website. If you prefer not to use the forms, you are welcome to email me your responses to the questions asked, instead. This relates in particular to the Registration Form for the Word 4 Writers Course.

Newsletter subscriptions

I have made the decision not to continue with Lateral Ezine; instead HearWriteNow as a whole will be taking a magazine style approach. I suggest subscribing to the RSS feed if you would like to stay up to date.

All subscription information handled by Zinester has been deleted following their shut down.

External websites

I have no control over external websites such as the Yahoo Groups site, PayPal, ShareASale, Amazon, Book Depository, eBay, and other links provided on this site, affiliate or otherwise. Please use your own discretion when using these sites, and take all precautions to ensure that you are browsing a legitimate site.

The PayPal site must have "https" at the start of the URL, and a padlock or other indication from your browser that you are viewing a secure site.

If you prefer, you are welcome to make arrangements with me to transfer registration fees or other payments via a PayPal to PayPal transfer instead of clicking the Buy Now link on this site. This will allow you to make your own security checks, eg opening a new browser window and typing the PayPal URL yourself.
