Cookies are small pieces of information that are stored in a browser-related file on your computer's hard drive when you use our Web site. We use cookies to improve the member experience. We also use them to deliver information and fresh content specific to your interests. Cookies are widely used on most major Web sites.  
Worthyofpublishing.com mostly uses "session" cookies, which are removed from your computer once you leave Worthyofpublishing.com. These are used so our service can remember that you have logged in already and prevent you doing so more frequently. The technology we use (Microsoft Active Server Pages), requires the use of session cookies. Session cookies expire and are deleted after 30 minutes of no activity on Worthyofpublishing.com.  
Worthyofpublishing.com also uses persistent cookies to personalize the user experience, to help protect our members and to provide us with research information (such as how often members visit Worthyofpublishing.com each month). Persistent cookies allow us to track users on Worthyofpublishing.com, and help us identify users abusing the Worthyofpublishing.com service.  

Other information we collect

This information can be used to track users who abuse Worthyofpublishing.com and will only be provided to legal authorities in cases of suspected fraud. IP addresses can be used, in conjunction with an Internet Service Provider, to find the dial-in account of a user and, ultimately, further information to identify a user. This information is stored securely and will not be provided to other members or non-authorized parties.  

If you choose to post messages in our message areas or leave feedback for other users, we will collect that information you provide to us.
