You can choose not to provide certain information, but you might not be able to take advantage of many of our features. We use the information that you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests, customizing future shopping for you, improving our store, and communicating with you.

Does Athousand-words.com share the information it receives?
Information about our customers is an important part of our business, and we are not in the business of selling it to others.
Is the information about me secure?
We work to protect the security of your information during order transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts order information you transmit. We reveal only the last five digits of your credit card numbers when confirming an order. Of course, we transmit the entire credit card number to the appropriate credit card company during order processing.
It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer.
What about third-party advertisers and links to other web sites?

Please contact them directly for more information about their privacy practices. In addition, the Network Advertising Initiative offers useful information about Internet advertising companies (also called "ad networks" or "network advertisers"), including information about how to opt-out of their information collection. Athousand-words.com might also display targeted advertising based on personal information about users. Although Athousand-words.com does not provide any personal information to advertisers, advertisers (including ad-serving companies) may assume that users who interact with or click on a targeted advertisement meet the targeting criteria used to display the ad (for example, users in the northwestern United States who like designer jeans).
What information can I access?
Athousand-words.com gives you access to a broad range of information about your account and your interactions with Athousand-words.com for the limited purpose of viewing and, in certain cases, updating that information.
