We use non-identifying and aggregate information to better design our website and to share with advertisers.

Finally, we never use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated to the ones described above without also providing you an opportunity to opt-out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.
Our Commitment to Data Security
To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. When setting your password, it is suggested that you use at least eight (8) characters that are a combination of upper and lower case, alpha-numeric, and non-alphabetic characters (i.e. @, #, $).
Our Commitment to Children's Privacy
Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. For that reason, we never collect or maintain information at our website from those we actually know are under 13, and no part of our website is structured to attract anyone under 13.
How You Can Access or Correct Your Information
You can access all your personally identifiable information that we collect online and maintain by logging into your personal account on MahoganyBooks.com. We use this procedure to better safeguard your information. You can correct factual errors in your personally identifiable information by correcting them in your customer account.

“Phishing” and Identity Theft
MahoganyBooks will never send you an email requesting specific personal, financial, or credit card information. If you receive such an email, DO NOT RESPOND, it did not originate from us. Although, these emails may look like official MahoganyBooks.com communications and may ask you to provide this information to "confirm your account." These so-called “phishing” expeditions are usually attempts to steal your identity and defraud you. Please forward any emails you feel may be fradulent to email@example.com so we can take appropriate action.
Congratulations on your book! As an author, we have only two ways for you to connect. Any other contact will not be considered for appearances or book placement as we want to ensure all inquiries are handled by the appropriate department.
1). For Book Placement Consideration: your book(s) must be distributed by Ingram Books Group as this is our primary vendor for fulfilling customer orders. If you meet those requirements, please submit your information here: Inventory Submission Form to have your book considered for our store. You will be notified should your work be accepted.
2) For Author Event Appearances: We'd love to have you appear at our store! To be considered for an author event, please submit your request here: Author Appearance Form.
These are the only two methods for submissions. Any books mailed or dropped off at the store will become property of MahoganyBooks. Due to the unusual amount of responses, this allows us a way to process all inquiries. We sincerely appreciate your understanding.
