This Privacy Policy covers treatment of personally identifiable information that BWTC collects when you are on the Business Writing That Counts! website, and when you use BWTC's services. This policy does not apply to the practices of companies that BWTC does not own or control, or to people that BWTC does not employ or manage. Additionally, any information (including personal information) that you reveal in a public forum (such as a bulletin board, mail list, chat room) is not protected by this Privacy Policy.

The only personally identifiable information BWTC obtains about individual visitors to its website is that supplied voluntarily by visitors. In cases when BWTC may need personal information to provide visitors with customized content or to inform them about new features or services, visitors are explicitly asked for that information.


2) We may ask for your email address. That information will only be used if there are transmission errors.  We do not sell or reuse the address in any other way.


3) We use cookies to track some information, simulate a continuous connection and make your visit to BWTC easier. "Cookies" are small computer files used by a Web site to deliver data to your hard drive. Cookies "remember" information and are there to improve your experience on our site.


BWTC also automatically receives and records information on our server logs from your browser including your IP address, cookie information and the page you requested.

Is your personal information released to third parties?

BWTC will not disclose any information we gather from you that could be used to identify or contact you ("Personal Information"). Any Personal Information provided to entities affiliated with BWTC will be treated in accordance with the terms of this Privacy Policy, unless you are otherwise notified.


In the following limited circumstances we will consider, and may release, Personal Information to third parties: (1) to comply with valid legal requirements such as law, regulation, search warrant, subpoena, or court order; or (2) in special cases, such as physical threat to you or others. We also provide Personal Information to our affiliates where it is necessary for them to provide us with products and services related to better operation and maintenance of our Web site. We will attempt to require that each of these affiliates not further use or disclose your Personal Information for any purpose other than providing you or us with products and services. Of course, we cannot guarantee their compliance with these restrictions.

Cookies and IP Addresses

We do not and cannot use cookies or IP address tracking to retrieve personal information from your computer. Our site places a text file called a "cookie" in the browser files of your computer.


Cookies are pieces of information that a website transfers to an individual's hard disk for record keeping purposes. Our site uses cookies during your online session to deliver content specific to your interests. Cookies allow us to avoid showing you the same ad or other message repeatedly. Our cookies do not contain personal information. They do enable BWTC to relate your use of the site to information that you have specifically and knowingly provided to our site.


Most browsers can be set to reject all cookies. Most browsers offer assistance and instructions on how to reset the browser to reject cookies in the "HELP" section of the toolbar. If you reject our cookie, certain of the functions and services of the BWTC Site may not work properly.


All computers and servers on the Internet use IP addresses to recognize and communicate with each other. Collecting IP addresses allows us to administer and analyze our site and report non-personal information (such as how many visitors we have) to sponsors and/or content providers. When you open a page from Dr. Julie Miller's site on your computer, BWTC's servers enter the IP address of that computer into a log. To maintain our users' anonymity, BWTC does not associate IP addresses with records containing personal information.

External Links

In order to provide visitors with greater value, BWTC may provide links to various third party websites through the BWTC site. However, even if a third-party affiliation exists between BWTC and that destination site, BWTC exercises no authority over linked sites, each of which maintains independent privacy and data collection policies and procedures. BWTC assumes no responsibility or liability for these independent methods or actions and is not responsible for the independent policies or procedures of destination sites.


Similarly, BWTC cannot take responsibility for the privacy initiatives or the content of such websites. These destination links are provided only for your convenience, and as such, you access them at your own risk. However, BWTC wishes to ensure the integrity of the BWTC site and its destination links, so any comments pertaining to the BWTC site or any sites accessed through the BWTC site links are greatly appreciated.
