What Information Does Linda Stirling, The Publishing Authority, LLC Collect About Me?
We may collect information about you from a variety of sources, including information we collect from you directly; information we collect about you when you visit our sites, use our services, or view our online advertisements; and information we collect about you from other sources (where permitted by law).
Information you provide directly:
We collect information directly from you when you choose to participate in our offers and programs or otherwise provide information directly to us.
The Site may use other tracking tools, including web beacons. Web beacons are images on the Site (or in emails that the Site sends to you) that help us determine what parts of the Site you have visited, whether you have opened an email that we have sent to you, or otherwise to measure the effectiveness of the Site. These technical methods may involve the transmission of information directly to us or to a service provider authorized by us to collect information on our behalf.
Personalized retargeting is another form of internet based advertising that enables our advertiser partners to show you ads based on your online browsing away from ThePublishingAuthority.com. For example, if you visited the website of an online book store you may start seeing adverts from the same book store displaying special offers or showing you the products that you were browsing when you come to ThePublishingAuthority.com. This allows companies to advertise to people who previously visited their website.
Although these internet based advertising technologies can track your visits around the web they do not identify who you are personally. Even if you sign in to ThePublishingAuthority.com, the internet based advertising data is still not linked to your personal information.
The following are examples of information we may collect with these technologies:
Your browser type and operating system.
Web pages you view.
Links you click.
Site you visited before coming to our site.
Emails from Linda Stirling, The Publishing Authority, LLC that you open and/or forward.
Offers or links from Linda Stirling, The Publishing Authority, LLC offers that you connect to via emails.

Name, postal address.
Age or date of birth.
Marital status and number of children.
Your interests such as hobbies and pets.
Consumer and market research data.
Publicly observed data or activities, such as blogs, videos, internet postings, user generated content, and in-store shopping behavior.
The data these sources hold about you has been collected from publicly available records, such as voter registration data, or via a range of sources with your permission (such as where you have agreed, through opt-in, for your information to be shared with third parties).
How Does Linda Stirling, The Publishing Authority, LLC Protect My Information?
We will take reasonable and appropriate technical and organizational precautions to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of your personal information.
However, you acknowledge that the transmission of information over the internet is inherently insecure, and no method of data transmission or storage can be guaranteed 100% secure. Accordingly, we cannot guarantee the security of any data you transmit to us via the internet or archive at this site.
If you are a parent or guardian who determines that your child under the age of 18 has submitted his or her personal information without your consent or knowledge, we will remove the personal information from public display, at your request. Certain postings by minors who registered to the site without parental permission may also be removed upon request, subject to applicable laws. To request the removal of information, contact the site administrator per the “Contact Us” terms, including in your request the same login or registration information that the child submitted.
