Site Policies

Welcome to JerryJenkins.com. We provide our services to you subject to the following conditions. If you visit or shop at this website, you accept these conditions. Please read them carefully.

Permissions Policy

With the exception of guest posts written by others (see Guest Posts below), we own the content on this Web site. It is copyrighted in Jerry Jenkins’s name. We want to strike the appropriate balance between getting our content widely distributed while at the same time protecting Jerry’s intellectual property rights. Thanks in advance for your cooperation.

Without Our Permission

You are free to do the following:

  • Link to our site or any specific post on our site.
  • Extract and re-post fewer than 200 words on any other site, provided you link back to our original post.
  • Print off our posts and photocopy up to 50 copies for internal distribution within your own company or organization.
  • Print our posts in any non-commercial publication (e.g., company newsletter, church newsletter, class syllabus, etc.), provided you include this copyright notice: ‘© 2016 Jerry B. Jenkins. All rights reserved. Originally published at www.JerryJenkins.com.’

Only With Our Permission

You must have our express written consent to do any of the following:

  • Use this content for commercial purposes, including selling or licensing printed or digital versions of our content.
  • Alter, transform, or build upon this work.

Re-posting and Translation Rights

We do not permit the re-posting of our posts in their entirety. This is because Google penalizes websites for publishing duplicate content. It often can’t tell which site hosts the original, so we risk getting penalized for granting permission.

In addition, we don’t allow the translation and publication of Jerry’s work in other languages, as we don’t have the resources to validate the quality of the work.

Guest Posts

Guest bloggers retain the copyright to the posts they write. The above permission guidelines do not apply to their work. If you are interested in re-posting or publishing their content, you must contact them directly. We do not serve as their broker, agent, or contact point.

If you have some use for our content not covered here, please email us.

Privacy Policy

Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used. To make this notice easy to find, we make it available on our homepage and at every point where personally identifiable information may be requested.

The Way We Use Information

We use the information you provide about yourself when placing an order only to complete that order. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete that order.

We use return email addresses to answer the email we receive for tech support, customer service, email updates, and to send registered users their unlock codes. Such addresses are not used for any other purpose and are not shared with outside parties.

Finally, we never use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated to those described above without also providing you an opportunity to opt-out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.

Cookies and Page Tags

We may collect non-personally identifiable information passively using “cookies” and “page tags.”

“Cookies” are small text files that can be placed on your computer or mobile device in order to identify your Web browser and the activities of your computer on the Site and other websites. Cookies can be used to personalize your experience on our websites (such as dynamically generating content on webpages specifically designed for you), to assist you in using the Site (such as saving time by not having to reenter your name each time you use the Site), to allow us to statistically monitor how you are using the Site so that we can improve our offerings, and to target certain advertisements to your browser which may be of interest to you or to determine the popularity of certain content.

You do not have to accept cookies to use the Site. Although most browsers are initially set to accept cookies, you may change your browser settings to notify you when you receive a cookie or to reject cookies generally. However, if you reject cookies, certain features or resources of our websites may not work properly or at all and you may have a degraded experience.

“Page tags,” also known as web beacons or gif tags, are a web technology used to help track website or email usage information, such as how many times a specific page or email has been viewed. Page tags are invisible to you, and any portion of the Site, including advertisements, or e-mail sent on our behalf, may contain page tags.

By using cookies and page tags together, we are able to improve the Site and measure the effectiveness of our advertising and marketing campaigns.

Finally, you should be aware that this Privacy Policy does not govern the use of third-party websites or services or providers of third-party services. Without limiting the foregoing, and as an example only, if you connect to a third-party service via API, you may be providing information to that third-party.

Our Commitment To Data Security

To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.

All online credit card transactions are performed only on secure servers through a secure SSL connection.
