Who We Are

Our website address is: https://wordforlifepublishing.com.

What information do we collect and how do we use it?

You may visit our site anonymously.  When you request a page from our website, our Web servers automatically recognize your domain name and IP address.  These do not reveal any personal information about you.  We use this information to examine our traffic as a whole.  Our Web servers do not record email addresses of visitors.

We collect information from you when you register on the site, place an order, submit a testimony, enter a contest or promotion, sign up to receive our emails, respond to a survey or communication such as email, or participate in other site features such as the “comments” section on our videos and blog.

When you register or order, we may ask your name, email address, mailing address, phone number, credit card information, or other information.  This allows us to process and fulfill your order, and to notify you of your order status.

While you visit our site, we’ll track:

  • Products you’ve viewed: we’ll use this to, for example, show you products you’ve recently viewed
  • Location, IP address and browser type: we’ll use this for purposes like estimating taxes and Shipping & Handling
  • Shipping & Handling address: we’ll ask you to enter this so we can, for instance, estimate Shipping & Handling before you place an order, and send you the order!

We’ll also use cookies to keep track of cart contents while you’re browsing our site.

When you purchase from us, we’ll ask you to provide information including your name, billing address, Shipping & Handling address, email address, phone number, credit card/payment details and optional account information like username and password. We’ll use this information for purposes, such as, to:

  • Send you information about your account and order
  • Respond to your requests, including refunds and complaints
  • Process payments and prevent fraud
  • Set up your account for our store
  • Comply with any legal obligations we have, such as calculating taxes
  • Improve our store offerings
  • Send you marketing messages, if you choose to receive them

If you create an account, we will store your name, address, email and phone number, which will be used to populate the checkout for future orders.

We generally store information about you for as long as we need the information for the purposes for which we collect and use it, and we are not legally required to continue to keep it. For example, we will store order information for XXX years for tax and accounting purposes. This includes your name, email address and billing and Shipping & Handling addresses.

We will also store comments or reviews, if you choose to leave them.

We also collect information about gift recipients so that we can fulfill the gift purchase.  This information is not used for marketing purposes.

When you submit a customer testimonial or “God at Work” testimony online, we may ask for your name, email address, and location (state or country). We will not publish your email address, but may use it to communicate with you about your testimony. We may, however, publish your name and location along with your testimony on our website or in print media.

When you enter a contest or other promotion, we may ask for your name, address, and email address so we can administer the contest and notify winners.

If you write or email us, if you respond to a survey or communication such as email, if you participate in other site features, we may email you to acknowledge receipt of your information, discuss your comments, or give you information or materials you have requested.  We will not publish your personal information without your consent, except as following: We may publish your name or nickname along with your comments, in the “comments” section of our videos, blog, and other site features.

We maintain a strict “No-Spam” policy. We will not sell, rent, or otherwise give your email address to a third party, without your consent.  We will not send you email that you have not agreed to receive.

If you have signed up (opted in) to be on our email list, we will send you our monthly newsletter.

We collect information about you during the checkout process on our store.

Cache

This site utilizes caching in order to facilitate a faster response time and better user experience. Caching potentially stores a duplicate copy of every web page that is on display on this site. All cache files are temporary, and are never accessed by any third party, except as necessary to obtain technical support from the cache plugin vendor. Cache files expire on a schedule set by the site administrator, but may easily be purged by the admin before their natural expiration, if necessary.
