Information We Collect
For each visitor to our website, our web server automatically recognizes only the visitor’s domain name and not the visitor’s email address.
We collect the following:
- only the domain name and not the email address of visitors to our website;
- aggregate information about which pages visitors access or visit;
- information volunteered by the visitor, such as email addresses of those who register with our website, sign up for our e-newsletters, become members, or make donations; or personal information collected via surveys.
Use of This Information

We do not rent, sell, or share email addresses with any organization. We do share email addresses of those who sign up for our e-newsletters with the third-party platform MailChimp (see Third-Party Platforms).
If you supply us with your postal address online you may receive periodic mailings from us with information about new services and/or upcoming events. From time to time, we make mailing addresses of our past and current members available for rent to our peer literary organizations for postal mail solicitations. If you do not wish to receive any mailings from us and/or if you would like your mailing address excluded from any future list rental, please let us know by calling (888) 790-0721, emailing [email protected], or sending a letter to the address below.
Persons who supply us with their telephone numbers online will only receive telephone contact from us with information regarding orders, payments, or accounts they have made online.
