Personally Identifiable Information refers to information that tells us specifically who you are, such as your name, phone number, email or postal address. In many cases we need this information to provide the personalized or enhanced service that you have requested. The amount of Personally Identifiable Information that you choose to disclose to Heartland Reviews is completely up to you. The only way we know something about you personally is if you provide it to us in conjunction with one of our services.
What information do we collect and how do we use it?
Heartland Reviews collects information on our users in two ways: by your voluntary submissions (for instance, if you sign up for our book review newsletter) and/or surveys; and through cookie technology. In our effort to provide personalization and opportunities for services, we may at times ask you to submit information such as your name or email address, or to share your interests and hobbies with us. You never have to answer these questions, and you can decline this exchange of information on any site on the Internet – not just ours – at any time. However, if you should choose to withhold requested information, we may not be able to provide you with some of the services dependent upon the collection of this information.
The information Heartland Reviews collects is used in a variety of ways: for internal review; to improve the content of the site, thus making your user experience more valuable; to notify you about updates to the service; and to let you know about products and services that you may be interested in. We do not provide your information to other companies; however, we do provide links to publishers whose titles we review so our subscribers may learn about other titles or more information about the titles we reviewed.
If you have provided us your email address, Heartland Reviews periodically sends promotional emails to its subscribers about services offered by Heartland Reviews and its partners. If you do not wish to receive email information from Heartland Reviews, please let us know by emailing us at:firstname.lastname@example.org or by writing us at:

We do not share this information with other organizations for marketing purposes
Heartland Reviews may automatically collect non-personally identifiable information and data through the use of “cookies.” Cookies are small text files a Web site uses to recognize repeat users, facilitate the user’s ongoing access to the site and facilitate the use of the site. “Cookies” also allow a site to track usage behavior and compile site usage information that will allow for the improvement of content and target advertising.

These companies may use non-personally identifiable information (i.e. not including your name, address, email address or telephone number) about your visits to this and other Web sites in order to provide advertisements on this site and other sites about goods and services that may be of interest to you.
