We are the sole owners of the information collected on this site. We have access to/collect only information that you voluntarily provide. We will never sell or rent the information you share with us to anyone. However, because Resounding Books was legally established as a political action committee (PAC), we do have a legal obligation to share certain information with the Federal Elections Commission (FEC). Our status as a PAC means that, according to federal law, all purchases from Resounding Books are considered political donations. We are thus required to share with the FEC information about any customers/donors that spend/contribute $200 or more in any given calendar year. In addition to name and living address, the FEC requires information about personal occupation. Under current FEC regulations, we are not legally obligated to report personal information for individuals purchasing/contributing less than $200 in any given calendar year. In order to safeguard your privacy to the greatest possible degree, we will not report any personal information to the FEC until such time as the $200 threshold is attained.
Within the context of Resounding Books’ operations, we will use your information only as necessary to fulfill your request (e.g. to respond to an inquiry or to fulfill an order).
We will not share your information with any third party outside of our organization, aside from our order-fulfillment partner should you order print publications.
We request information from you on our order form. To purchase from us, you must provide contact information (like name and shipping address) and financial information (like credit card number, expiration date). This information is used for billing purposes and to fill your orders. If we have trouble processing an order, we'll use this information to contact you.
You may opt out of any future contacts from us at any time. At any time, you may contact us via the email address or phone number provided on our website in order to:
We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.
Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser, or looking for "https" at the beginning of the address of the web page.
While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
This web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the content or privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of any other site that collects personally identifiable information.
From time-to-time our site requests information via surveys or competitions for mini-grants. Participation in these surveys or competitions is completely voluntary; you may choose whether or not to participate and therefore disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (e.g., name, address, and telephone number). Contact information will be used to notify the winners and make awards. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site and our products as well as to understand the mindset and make-up of the community we are working to develop through Resounding Books.
