privacy policy

ideas4writers is totally committed to protecting your privacy.

We do not share your personal information with anyone else.

We ask for the absolute minimum of details from you.

Our online database stores your membership number, email address, encrypted password, and membership options.

Any additional personal information you supply when you join is destroyed as soon as we are satisfied that your membership has been set up correctly.

Credit/debit card details are not held by or processed by ideas4writers, but by Nochex or PayPal on our behalf via their secure system. We receive a confirmation from these services when you make a payment, but this does not contain any details about your card. Please refer to the above websites for their own privacy policies.

We will occasionally invite you to complete questionnaires and surveys to help us improve our service or develop new products. The answers you provide will not be linked to you personally, and once the information has been collated, all individual replies will be destroyed.


The main part of the ideas4writers website does not use cookies.

The members-only part of the site uses session cookies to identify that you have logged in. Our forums use persistent cookies so that you only have to log in one a month rather than on every visit. We do not use any other sort of cookies, and we do not have any third-party cookies (i.e. cookies issued by other companies).

Session cookies are small text files that are stored in your computer's memory by your web browser. We send you a session cookie each time you log into the members' zone. The cookie contains your membership number and a random number that changes each time you log in. The session cookie is destroyed when you log out of the members' zone or close your web browser. If you do not agree to accept session cookies from us you can block them by changing your web brower's privacy settings. However you will no longer be able to access the ideas4writers members' zone.

Persisent cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer's hard drive. Our forum software will send you a persistent cookie when you log in, and it will remain on your computer for one month, after which it will be automatically destroyed. The persistent cookie contains your forum membership number and the expiry date. If you do not agree to accept persistent cookies from us you can block them by changing your web brower's privacy settings. However you will need to log into the forum every time you use it - it will not remember your details.
