Information Collection, Use, and Sharing
The only information collected on this site is voluntary. The only time information is collected is when you register for the mailing list on this website. The data collected is stored through a third party site (MailChimp or MailerLite) and is only accessible there. MaryEThompson.com is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. We only have access to/collect information that you voluntarily give us via email or other direct contact from you (newsletter registration). We will not sell or rent this information to anyone.
We will use your information to respond to you, regarding the reason you contacted us. We will not share your information with any third party outside of our organization, other than as necessary to fulfill your request, e.g. to ship an order.
Until you unsubscribe, you will be contacted by this site through our newsletter campaign at your designated request only.

Registration with this site is completely voluntary. Any user can see all the information on this site without being a registered user. Registered users receive an email at their own specified interval with additional information including sneak peeks, recommendations, and behind the scenes information, as well as whatever the author decides. During registration a user is required to give certain information (such as email address). This information is used to contact you about the products/services on our site in which you have expressed interest. At your option, you may also provide demographic information (such as name or birthdate) about yourself, but it is not required.
Surveys & Contests
From time-to-time our site requests information via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and you may choose whether or not to participate and therefore disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name, email, and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code, 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.
We use “cookies” on this site. A cookie is a piece of data stored on a site visitor’s hard drive to help us improve your access to our site and identify repeat visitors to our site. For instance, when we use a cookie to identify you, you would not not have a registration request pop up asking you to join the mailing list. Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our site. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information on our site.
