Submitted Books/Manuscripts

We know that you put a lot of time, effort, and work into your book. Delta Latitude will only distribute your book or manuscript as needed to write a review or the Chanticleer International Book Awards judging rounds, or for requested editorial services. If you submit a printed version of the material then you can request that the material be returned (You must pay postage and handling.) or destroyed. If you wish to have the material returned, you must supply a self-addressed stamped envelope/box (SASE) when you submit your printed copy. CBR maintains the right to retain one copy of the reviewed work for our library of reviews as is the practice of professional review services and all others will be destroyed or returned as per the author’s/publisher’ s request. You, as the author, retain all rights to the manuscript. After Chanticleer Book Reviews completes a paid book review and delivers it to the author, there is a 72 hour period in which the author may decide that he/she does not want the review published on the CBR site.  This decision must be conveyed in an email to the Chanticleer editor who sent the review (email is preferred).  If CBR does not hear anything from the author/publisher within 72 hours of contact, the review will be published on our site, and posted and distributed to various third party review sites and social media platforms. The review may also be placed in the Chanticleer Reviews magazine. The author may republish the review as long as they provide credit to Chanticleer Book Reviews or CBR. If the review is placed online, attribution to Chanticleer Reviews is required and with a link is appreciated.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Delta Latitude collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Delta Latitude’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Delta Latitude’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Delta Latitude may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website. Delta Latitude also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on blogs. Delta Latitude only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Delta Latitude’s websites choose to interact with Delta Latitude in ways that require Delta Latitude to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Delta Latitude gathers depend on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask users who comment on reviews to provide a name and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Delta Latitude – by purchasing a book review, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Delta Latitude collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Delta Latitude. Delta Latitude does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Delta Latitude takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
