The Information We Gather Like virtually all other web servers, our web server automatically creates log files for each visitor who accesses our sites. The access logs do not record a visitor's name, address, phone number, credit card number(s), or any other personally identifying information. Rather, these log files may contain some or all of the following information:
The date of the visit
The time and length of the visit
The path taken through the site, including links (such as buy or donate links) that are clicked
The browser/device being used
We do not collect personally identifying information from our website unless you choose to provide that information to us. Visitors under the age of 13 must obtain permission from their parents or guardians before sending any personally identifying information to Bandicootlodge. Making a purchase through our website constitutes your choice to provide identifying information. That is further explained below.
Name and Contact Information Bandicootlodge may ask visitors (you) to provide certain personal information when you: sign up for an e-newsletter list, request information, or make a purchase or donation. We tell you whether a specific piece of information is required at the time it is requested. This information may be used by Bandicootlodge to verify your identity, contact you for additional information or administrative purposes, and fulfill your request. If you sign up for our e-newsletter, you may receive e-mail regarding our books, author events, and website; otherwise, we will contact you only if necessary for the purposes above. Unless explicitly stated otherwise at the time of submission, the personally identifying information you provide will not be sold, shared, or used for purposes other than listed above. You may contact us at any time to request removal from our mailing list or supporter database.
Credit Card Information You must be 18 to engage in money-related transactions on the Bandicootlodge website. When you do so, you may be asked for a credit card number. All financial transactions take place only on secure servers hosted by PayPal and Square, and electronic communication of credit card information is sent only in a secured or encrypted format. Your credit card information is considered completely confidential. PayPal and Square are compliant with the Data Security Standard as prescribed by the Payment Card Industry.
