Here on Book Blogger Penpals, your safety is taken very seriously. Please DO NOT include personal information in any comments on my posts. You never know who is checking out my blog and can see your information. If any personal information is posted in the comments, I will delete the comment for your own safety - but I can't guarantee that it will be deleted before someone else has seen it. Because of this, so you're not using your own/full name, I suggest using a Blogger or Google ID to create an online persona.
Book Blogger Penpals is not aimed at children under the age of 13. I do not knowingly collect personal information from anyone under 13. If parents have any concerns about this blog or your child has provided personal information, please contact me at bookbloggerpenapls[at]gmail[dot]com.
At no point will Book Blogger Penpals request your mailing address, but in order to write letters to each other, penpals will need to swap mailing addresses. You decide who receives your mailing address, and choose to give it willingly. At no point will you be asked to share your mailing address with another blogger if you do not wish to.
Due to the way Book Blogger Penpals is run, you will need to provide your email address. Your email address will be kept to contact you about future penpal requests and to update you about the blog blog as and when needed. The only time I will pass on your email address is when you are requesting a penpal, and the blogger in questions has accepted your request and needs your email address to provide you with their mailing address. Your email address will not be used or shared for any other reason.
If at some point in the future you wish to no longer take part in Book Blogger Penpals, your email address will be deleted, along with all information you submitted for your advert.
