Privacy Policy

Thank you for visiting (“Site”), which is owned and operated by Hillside Writing, LLC (“we,” “our,” “us”). This Privacy Policy informs you about the personal information we collect through your voluntary interactions with us and through our Site, how we handle the information that you provide to us, and your privacy rights and choices. By using our Site, you acknowledge that you have read and agree to the terms of this statement. If you do not agree with our practices, please do not use our Site. You may always contact us directly with any privacy-related questions. Contact information appears below. 

The information we collect 

We collect personal information that you voluntarily provide to us when you express interest in obtaining information about us or about our products and services (such as through email communications or Site forms), when you participate in the activities of our services, or otherwise when you communicate with us. We will never rent or sell your personal information to others.

The personal information that we collect depends on the context of your interactions with us and our services, the choices you make, and the Site features you use. The information may include the following:

  • names
  • phone numbers
  • email addresses
  • mailing addresses
  • billing addresses
  • school names
  • personal pronouns

We may also collect reviews of our services that you voluntarily provide through email communications or Site forms.

Our use and protection of the personal information you provide 

Although no electronic communications or information storage tools can guarantee complete security, we take precautions to protect your personal information, which is shared only internally, among Hillside Writing employees, as needed for the purposes of providing you our services, for communications with you about our services and products, or for marketing efforts. For the purpose of building a community of writers in different stages of life, we retain your contact information beyond your first use of our services. You may at any time request not to receive communications from us or to have us delete or correct your personal information by writing to us at

For marketing efforts we may use reviews of our services that you share with us electronically or otherwise, but we will use reviews only in anonymous ways unless we directly request your permission to use your name in attribution.

Payment information

When you make payments for our services or products, we or the service providers acting on our behalf may collect information to process your payment. At this time, we do not accept credit cards, and so the service providers we use for payment processing do not ask for credit card information. We make available third-party providers in order to offer efficient, secure bank-to-bank payment processing, but we have no access ourselves to your banking account information. We encourage you to read about the privacy practices of any payment-processing providers before supplying personal or banking-related information. You may always elect to pay for Hillside Writing services or products by sending a check in the mail to our office.

Links to and embedded content from other websites

Pages on our Site may include links to other websites and/or embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.) from other websites. Embedded content from other websites behaves in the same way as if the visitor visited the other websites directly. These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed 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. Please note that we are not responsible for the content or privacy practices of other websites we link to or embed content from.

Revisions to this policy

We may from time to time revise our Privacy Policy. By using our Site or providing us with your personal information after any revisions, you agree to be bound by the terms of the revised Policy.
