Privacy Policy
We strive to maintain the highest standards of decency, fairness and integrity, and we're dedicated to protecting your privacy on our website.  Here's lots of details on what we mean by that:


Personal Information: We don't collect ANY personally identifiable information from visitors to our website, except for in (1) the Suggest a Book form, in which we give the user the option of including their name, email address, and state, and in  (2) the Monthly Newsletter opt-in form, which requires an email address and your first name. We do NOT use this information for any other reason than to communicate with you (for book suggestions) or send the newsletter (for monthly newsletter opt-in), nor do we give or sell this information to any other party.  

Use of Cookies and Web Beacons: Right now we don't use cookies because, um, we don't really know how to...or why we'd want to.  Same for web beacons, which is a file used to monitor your journey around our site.  We don't track where you go on our site, other then a simple online program that helps us see where people enter and exit our site.  That helps us make the site better. We don't know where you in particular entered or exited, just that a user did.

Having said that, we do have some ads on our site through Google Adsense, and they may use cookies and web beacons to ascertain how many times you've seen an advertisement. No personally identifiable information you give us is provided to them for cookie or web beacon use, so they cannot personally identify you with that information on our web site. Also, some third-party advertisements may be provided by Google, which uses cookies to serve ads on this site. Google uses the DART cookie, which enables it to serve ads to our users based on their visits to this site and other sites on the Web. You may opt out of the use of the DART cookie by visiting the Google ad and content network privacy policy.  Browsers can be set to accept or reject cookies or notify you when a cookie is being sent. Privacy software can be used to override web beacons. Taking either of these actions shouldn't cause a problem with our site.

Children's Online Privacy Protection Act: This website is directed to adults; it is not directed to children under 13. We operate our site in compliance with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act, and will not knowingly collect or use personal information from anyone under 13 years of age.

Non-Personal Information: In some cases, we may collect information about you that is not personally identifiable. We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track users' movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole.  The information collected is used solely for internal review and not shared with other organizations for commercial purposes.

How You Can Correct or Remove Information:  If you have submitted personal information through our website and would like that information deleted from our records or would like to update or correct that information, please email us at info@the-best-childrens-books.org .

Updates and Effective Date:  The-best-childrens-books.org reserves the right to make changes in this policy.  If there is a material change in our privacy practices, we will indicate on our site that our privacy practices have changed and provide a link to the new privacy policy. 

Agreeing to Terms:  Your use of this site indicates acceptance of this privacy policy.


Affiliate Disclosure
The-best-childrens-books.org is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon.com.  Basically, if you buy something at Amazon after following one of our links, we get a small comission. Very small.  But, our goal is that those small comissions will cover all our costs of hosting and running this site. We're not there yet, but we are hopeful!

So if you find a book via this site and decide to buy it on Amazon, it would be super swell if you would access Amazon through one of our links. It all adds up to help us make the site better!

FCC Disclosure
And lastly, we do not accept free books from publishers or any other special perks in exchange for including books on this site.  We include books based on awards received, Amazon reader reviews, and high recommendations from teachers who use the book in their own classroom.
