This information is collected if you request information from us, participate in a contest or a survey, and sign up to join our email list or request some other service or information from us.

Once information is reviewed, it is discarded or stored in our files. If we make material changes in the collection of personally identifiable information we will inform you by placing a notice on our site. Personal information received from any visitor will be used only for internal purposes and will not be sold or provided to third parties.

Use of Cookies and Web Beacons

We may use cookies to help you personalize your online experience. Cookies are identifiers that are transferred to your computer's hard drive through your Web browser to enable our systems to recognize your browser. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize the sites pages, or register with any of our site's services, a cookie enables write-out-loud.com to recall your specific information on subsequent visits.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies by modifying your Web browser; however, if you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the site.

A web beacon is a transparent image file used to monitor your journey around a single website or collection of sites. They are also referred to as web bugs and are commonly used by sites that hire third-party services to monitor traffic. They may be used in association with cookies to understand how visitors interact with the pages and content on the pages of a web site.

We may serve third-party advertisements that use cookies and web beacons in the course of ads being served on our web site to ascertain how many times you've seen an advertisement. No personally identifiable information you give us is provided to them for cookie or web beacon use, so they cannot personally identify you with that information on our web site.

Some third-party advertisements may be provided by Google, which uses cookies to serve ads on this site. Google uses the DoubleClick cookie, which enables it to serve ads to our users based on their visits to this site and other sites on the Web. You may opt out of the use of the DoubleClick cookie by visiting the Google ad and content network privacy policy.

Browsers can be set to accept or reject cookies or notify you when a cookie is being sent. If you wish to opt out from the use of the DoubleClick cookie please visit your Ads Settings to make changes. Privacy software can be used to override web beacons. Taking either of these actions shouldn't cause a problem with our site, should you so choose.

Advertisements and Recommendations

We use Google AdSense to show you advertisements for goods and services that may be of interest to you. These advertisements are clearly identified. We do not have complete control over what products and services are advertised, and the fact that a particular product or service is advertised in this way is not an indication that we recommend or endorse that product or service. Any claim, statistic, quote or other representation should be verified with the seller, manufacturer or provider. We may receive a payment if you respond to any of these advertisements.

We make a number of product and service recommendations throughout this website. We may, but in general do not, receive a payment for making these recommendations. In either case we recommend only those products and services that we believe to be suitable for the purpose, and that we would use ourselves. The views and opinions expressed on this site are those of the authors and other contributors only. Any claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the seller, manufacturer or provider.

We are happy to recommend SBI! (previously known as Site Build It!) from SiteSell to any of our visitors who would like to have their own successful website. We use this product ourselves, and believe that it represents excellent value for money. We receive no payment for recommending SBI!, but should you decide to purchase this product for yourself we may receive a commission. You are free to order from a number of sources, including SiteSell, but we would appreciate it if you would consider doing so through us. Fuller details of the product, and the opportunity to order, may be found on our About Site Build It page.
