Privacy Policy

Are you wondering what personally identifiable information and other information we collect from you here at crochet-books.com? If so, the following privacy policy will help you understand our practices in this regard.


When Comments Are Enabled: If you post a comment on any page or post on this site, WordPress will automatically prompt you to enter an email address. The email address WILL NOT BE DISPLAYED on the site (although your web site URL will be if you enter a URL. That’s optional.) Your comment including your email address will be emailed to us for moderation. I’m not sure if there’s any way to disable that, so if you want to comment but you don’t want me to have your email address, you should enter a fake email address.

If you enter a comment that says something along the lines of “Please contact me”, I probably will contact you. Hope that wouldn’t shock you or anything. Of course, if you’ve entered a fake email address, you won’t receive my response. That would be a bummer, wouldn’t it?

Note: I’ve temporarily disabled commenting on this website for the time being. I am really sorry if you wanted to post a comment and were not able to do so. I do plan to enable commenting again soon (when I have the time to monitor comments, respond to them and delete spam.)

There is a slight chance that in the future this web site may be sold or change hands. If so, anything you post as a comment on the web site will change hands with it. Any other information you’ve entered is probably also going to change hands.

My blog software collects IP addresses of site visitors. If I notice you trying to leave spam comments or otherwise trying to do anything malicious to my web site, I might report you to your ISP and / or other authorities and ban you from accessing all my web sites. Otherwise I don’t really take note of IPs or do anything in particular with the information the software is collecting.

Note to spammers: Don’t bother spamming here. I value my visitors and would never intentionally waste their time by allowing you to spam them.

This website utilizes web analytics programs that collect non-personally identifiable information. We occasionally analyze this data in hopes that we can understand our users’ interests and improve the user experience on our site.

This site contains links to other sites. If you click those links, you will leave this site and magically be transported to the other site. (Funny how that works, hmmm?) When you do so, you will be subjected to the privacy policies of the other sites. Some of the sites use cookies (ebay and amazon, to name a couple of them, both use cookies. Others do as well.)

Some (not all!) of the links on my pages are affiliate links. What that means: for the affiliate links, if you click through and then make a purchase immediately or soon after, I will be paid a small commission on the sale. (And I do mean small. For example, your purchase at Amazon.com might result in commissions of pennies for me.) This commission does not affect your purchase price in any way; commissions are paid by the merchant, in much the same way that stores pay commissions to their retail salespeople for introducing you to new products.

These commissions help defray the cost of hosting and bandwidth for this website. If you have ever purchased anything through any of the links on my website, thank you so much for your trust and support. I really appreciate it.

This site utilizes cookies. You can disable cookies if you like, but portions of this site may stop working correctly for you if you do.

I send out a newsletter from knittingandcrochet.net. If you want to subscribe to it, please familiarize yourself with the privacy policy at knittingandcrochet.net to better understand how information is handled at that site.

In the future, I may start selling crochet books on this site. In that case, I will collect enough information about you to complete the sale, ship the item(s), and contact you regarding the status of your purchase(s).

These policies were posted in July, 2016. Thanks for your interest in crochet-books.com! We really appreciate it.
