We realize how important your privacy is to you, and it's important to us, too. That is why and Plank Road Publishing do not sell, trade, or in any way disseminate personal information gathered from our web sites to any outside party.

The information you submit to us in an Internet order is placed in a secure database (which is protected by a firewall), so that our Customer Service representatives can better help you. For example, we ask you to provide a telephone number when you place an order so that a Customer Service representative can contact you, should there be any questions regarding your order.

Credit Card Numbers submitted as part of an Internet order through our Secure Store are transmitted in an encrypted format, protected by industry-standard security software. Cards are charged at the time the order is placed, so we do not store your credit card number.

When you place an online order with us, we send you an email confirmation of your order. We do not, however, send unnecessary email messages, or "spam."

We do not collect personally identifying information about you without your knowledge or permission. We do, however, use an external analytics app to gather non-identifying statistical information (see below). This information helps us with web design decisions and allows us to gauge what type of information is most popular with or useful to visitors. In short, it helps us make the web site more useful to you.

Google Analytics

Google Analytics is a service provided by Google, Inc. Google Analytics uses cookies to help us analyze how users use our web sites, including our mobile site. The information generated by these cookies (including your truncated IP address) is transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your, and other users', use of our web sites, compiling reports for us on web site activity, and providing other services relating to web site activity and Internet usage. Please note that Google only receives your truncated IP address. This is sufficient for Google to identify (approximately) the country from which you are visiting our sites, but is not sufficient to identify you, or your computer or mobile device, individually.

We use the online advertising program Google AdWords and the Google Remarketing technology, both operated by the company Google Inc.

For measuring conversion with Google AdWords, a conversion tracking cookie is placed when a user clicks on an advertisement delivered by Google ("Ads"). Conversion tracking cookies expire after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. Google uses a different cookie for each Google AdWords customer, and there is no consolidation of the cookie data with other data. If you click on one of our Ads and proceed to a page equipped with a conversion tag and the cookie has not yet expired, the conversion is documented. With the help of the conversion tracking cookie we see the total number of conversions and are able to review the performance of our Ads.

When you click on one of our Ads, a Google Remarketing cookie is placed. This cookie helps to serve our Ads to you at a later time when you browse pages of the Google content network. Remarketing cookies expire after 30 days and are not used for personal identification.

Google cookies are those beginning "__ut."
