Fieldmouse Press understands that your privacy is important. This privacy policy was put into place to explain what type of information is collected when you visit or its subsidiary project and how we may use that information.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Like the majority of websites, our server automatically creates log files for each visitor who accesses our site. The access logs do not record a your 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 use this information to aid the technical administration of the site, to report the size of our audience to sponsors, grantors, and other institutions, and to learn how to better serve our web visitors.

This site uses cookies to collect some or all of the above information. Generally, the information we collect does not identify you personally. You may set your browser to reject cookies or to alert you when a cookie is placed on your computer.

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices if you choose. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

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 Fieldmouse Press.

Name and Contact Information

Fieldmouse Press may ask visitors to provide certain personal information when they sign up for a newsletter list, request information, or make a donation. You will be told what specific information is needed at the time it is requested.

This information may be used by Fieldmouse Press to verify your identity, contact you for additional information or administrative purposes, and fulfill your request. If you sign up for our newsletter, you may receive e-mail regarding our projects, special events, and website; otherwise, we will contact you only if necessary.

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.


When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy can be found at the following link: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Credit Card Information

You must be 18 to engage in money-related transactions on the Fieldmouse Press website or its subsidiary websites. When you do so, you may be asked for a credit card number. All financial transactions take place only on secure services compliant with the Data Security Standard as prescribed by the Payment Card Industry.
