Chelsea Green Publishing will never sell or rent your information to third parties. The email address you provide to Chelsea Green Publishing may be used by Chelsea Green Publishing for any reason including, but not limited to, editorial purposes, site communication, and notification of changes to our site. We will not sell or rent your email address to anyone for any reason. At times it is necessary for Chelsea Green Publishing to furnish your personal information to our third party service partners, such as when conducting an e-commerce transaction or sending our e-newsletters.

We collect the e-mail addresses of registered users, but this information is used solely for the purpose of our e-mail newsletters and shopping reminders, and for no other mailings. To remove your e-mail address from the newsletter subscriber list, please send an email to [email protected]


Information that we collect is stored on secure servers using standard security procedures and practices appropriate to the nature of the information in an effort to protect information from unauthorized access, destruction, use, modification, or disclosure.

To protect you and your personal account information, Chelsea Green employs SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) technology. SSL is the industry standard and the best software available for secure commerce transactions. We have taken every reasonable precaution to store the data that is collected in a secure manner.

During an online order, it is necessary for Chelsea Green Publishing to send your name, address, telephone number, and credit information to Authorize.net for payment processing. This transaction is conducted securely and in accordance with Authorize.net’s specified procedures. The information we send to Authorize.net is protected by Authorize.net’s own privacy policy.

Automatic Data Collection

When you visit our website, we may collect certain information automatically from your device. The information we collect automatically may include, but is not limited to, information like your IP address, device type, unique device identification numbers, browser-type (such as Firefox, Safari, or Internet Explorer), your Internet Service Provider (ISP), your operating system and carrier. For website users, details of any referring website or exit pages as well as broad geographic location (e.g., country or city-level location) may also be collected.

We may also collect other technical information such as how your device has interacted with our website, including the pages accessed and links clicked, for example, trips viewed and the time and date of these. We may also use this automatic information to prevent and detect fraud. The information does not contain the visitor’s name or e-mail address since the visitor’s browser does not provide this information to the web server.

Collecting this information enables us to better understand the visitors who come to our website, where they come from, and what content on our website is of interest to them. We use this information for our internal analytics purposes and to improve the quality and relevance of our website for our visitors. Information is used to allocate resources effectively and improve the content of our site.

Voluntary Registration

Certain sections of Chelsea Green Publishing require that visitors register by providing an e-mail address that is recorded in databases on our server. We consider the following, among other things, to be personally identifiable information: first and last name, e-mail address, street address and phone number.

Volunteered information is kept strictly confidential. Chelsea Green Publishing does not share or sell personally identifiable information to other companies. However, information that is voluntarily provided may be used internally. Additionally, Chelsea Green Publishing may choose, on occasion, to include third-party offers in our mailings. We maintain appropriate and reasonable safeguards to ensure the integrity, security, and privacy of the information in our possession.

You may opt not to be included in the e-mail announcements or mailings when you register for one of our offerings. If a particular registration form does not have this option, or, if you’d like to be removed from our lists for any reason, notify Chelsea Green directly by emailing [email protected]. Please include your name, e-mail address so that we can effectively remove you from the database.
