American Publishers hosts this website on behalf of and for the benefit of schools and organizations. We appreciate your trust in us. To get the full benefit of our personalized service, we ask you to give us information at different points on our website.

This policy covers only the information collected on the American Publishers site. Sites that link to or from our site, and sites hosted by our various partners, are not covered by this policy. We encourage you to read the privacy policies of every site that you visit as those parties may collect, use, protect, and share your information differently than us.

How We Use This Information To Serve You
When you first register with the American Publishers site, we ask for your name, school code, grade, teacher, e-mail address and a password. Once you supply this information, you will be able to personalize an online magazine and/or nut and chocolate store, launch emails, and share on social media to invite friends and family to shop online to support a school or organization. You will also be able to monitor your progress throughout the sale. For people shopping on a participant’s personalized store, personal information provided will be used only for the fulfillment of items purchased. All information sent via e-mail will come directly from American Publishers or the school / organization you are supporting. We will not sell or rent this information to anyone else. All information on current and former members is retained in our database for customer service purposes.
Personally Identifiable Information
American Publishers does not share your personally identifiable information with third parties for promotional or other purposes unrelated to products you order.
If you order a product, your name, postal address and e-mail address may be shared with the company that provides fulfillment services for that product and with the company that produces or creates the product that you ordered, such as a magazine publisher. This kind of information is shared only to process your order and to provide you with better customer service. But, as noted above, we suggest that you read these companies’ privacy policies to see how they use and protect, and whether they share your information.
Credit/debit card information
Credit/debit card information is never shared with outside parties for promotional or other purposes unrelated to products you order. As explained above, when you order a product online, we will ask for your name, mailing address, your phone number and credit/debit card information. This information will be used only to process your order and send you the product you requested. We will not share credit/debit card information with anyone else (unless an outside company is part of the process of fulfilling your order). As an extra precaution, American Publishers uses SSL encryption technology for a secure online ordering environment.
Friend/family members' information
If you send a gift for a friend or family member, their information will never be sold, shared or rented. We will use the information only to process your order and send the product to your gift recipient. The recipient’s information will only be retained in our database for accounting and current or future customer service purposes.
We believe that protecting the privacy of children is crucial. While our site may be visited by children, we do not collect any information that may be personally identifiable to a child under the age of 13 without the consent of the child’s parent or guardian. Accordingly, we ask for contact information for parents or guardians rather than children when children are under the age of 13. If we become aware that a child under the age of 13 has provided personal information to us without parental consent, we will promptly delete such information. Any videos and images of children are visible only to friends and family whose email addresses you provide, who see your social media postings, or who enter a unique code that you provide to them.
How To Manage Your Account Information
To review and change your personal information, including your name and password, go to the Campaign Headquarters page on the site where you can accomplish this immediately. To change other information, such as your delivery address for a particular product, please contact customer service. The contact information is shown in the Contact Us section of the website.
Managing your e-mail preferences
You may unsubscribe at any time from promotional e-mails. An unsubscribe link is located at the bottom of every promotional e-mail you receive. To unsubscribe, simply click the link and you will be removed from the list. In addition, you can unsubscribe by contacting customer service.
Our Commitment To Your Security
American Publishers uses SSL encryption technology for a secure online ordering environment. We also take every precaution available to protect the loss, misuse or alteration of the information under our control. This includes physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard all the information stored on our servers. This policy is implemented company-wide.
Also like most other websites, the American Publishers website uses IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track users' movements inside the site, and gather very general demographic information, in the interest of better serving our members and streamlining our operations. We do not link IP addresses to personally identifiable information.
We may use third party service providers to help us run the activities on this site, for example, to deploy emails or process credit card payments. Those third party providers are not authorized to use the information they obtain for any purpose other than to fulfill the function which we have asked them to provide.
