The Web sites of Righteous Pen Media (RPM), which includes righteouspenmedia.com are covered by the policies herein. If you have questions or concerns regarding this statement, you should contact Righteous Pen Media at firstname.lastname@example.org. This privacy statement covers only information that is collected through this Web site.
When does Righteous Pen Media collect my personally identifiable information?
When you register for one of Righteous Pen Media's sites, or for services on any of our sites, we collect personally identifying information from you. During registration or in the submissions process, you are asked to provide your e-mail address, name, address, and contact information. The more information you provide, the better we are able to customize our services and your experience to suit your needs and preferences.
If you are making a purchase or enrolling in a premium service for which there is a fee, we, or a third party working in partnership with us, will collect your credit card, billing address, and other verifying information. In addition, we may collect personally identifiable information from you when you provide content to us for display or use on one or more of Righteous Pen Media's sites, including but not limited to, when you provide a testimony of services, post comments, report a problem with one of our sites or services, or submit an email to us.
How is my personally identifiable information used?
Our main goal is to provide you with a customized and more relevant experience and better serve you in your media production needs. We review our users' preferences, demographics, traffic patterns, and other information in aggregate so that we can better understand who our audience is, and what it is you want. Tracking user preferences also helps us provide more relevant advertising. Please note that we do not share your personally identifying information with the advertiser.
RPM does not directly handle online transactions, but we work with third-party partners who do. These partners require that all credit card information be transmitted in an encrypted form, using SSL (secure socket layer) encryption, the industry-standard. These partners follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to them, both during transmission and once they receive it.
What other information does Righteous Pen Media collect and how is it used?
IP Address. Righteous Pen Media may also collect IP addresses for the purposes of systems administration or to report information in aggregate form to our advertisers (i.e. how many visitors visited a Righteous Pen Media site). An IP address is a number that is assigned to your computer automatically when you use the Internet. When you visit a particular Righteous Pen Media Web page, our servers log your IP address. Your IP address is not linked to anything personally identifiable.
With whom does Righteous Pen Media share information?
User information is shared within Righteous Pen Media to provide you with a more integrated and customized user experience. We will not disclose your personally identifiable information to third parties except (1) to the extent necessary to provide you with a requested product or service, or (2) to provide targeted offers during your process. If you do not accept any of the offers, your information will not be retained by our partners.
To the extent you are notified of uses of your personal information which are different from those described in this Policy Statement during your enrollment in any particular service or promotion, the uses of which you are specifically notified will govern that service or promotion.
We reserve the right to disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on our Web site.
What else should I know about my privacy?
You should be aware that if you voluntarily disclose personal information online in a public area, that information may be collected and used by others. We do not control the actions of our visitors. If you disclose personal information in a forum, discussion, comment posted to story or any other publicly accessible place on Righteous Pen Media's sites, you do so at your own risk and you understand that your submitted information may be collected and used by others to send you unsolicited messages, advertisements, or for other purposes.
This Web site contains links to other sites that are not owned or controlled by Righteous Pen Media. Please be aware that we, Righteous Pen Media, are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites.

Transactions and E-Commerce

RPM cannot and does not take responsibility for the success or security of transactions undertaken or processed by third parties.
Errors in Advertisements
On occasion, a product or service may not be available at the time or the price as it appears in an advertisement.
