Story Submission / Dr. Terri Apter Question Submission
When submitting a story or question, a user has the option to provide personal information.  There is an opportunity to optionally provide an e-mail address.  When supplying this e-mail address, there is the opportunity to declare whether one is open to being contacted in the future via that address, or not.  If "no" is selected (which is the default) then we will use the e-mail address only for future identification purposes, should the same reader submit a follow-up story.  If "yes" is selected, the e-mail address is placed on our private mailing list.  The private mailing list will never be sold or shared with any third party.

some of our business partners use cookies on our site (for example, advertisers).  We have no access to or control over these cookies.

We may share aggregated demographic information with our partners and advertisers.  This is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person.

We may use an outside shipping company to ship orders, and a credit card processing company to bill users for goods and services.  We believe that these companies do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.  Since we have no control over this, please visit their respective sites and review their Privacy Policies for confirmation.
