Privacy Policy

Our use of data

We collect aggregate information on what pages consumers access or visit, and information volunteered by the consumer, such as survey information and/or site registrations.

The information we collect is used...

  • to improve the content of our site
  • to customize the content of our site for each individual visitor
  • to notify users about updates to our site

When legally required to do so, we will disclose user information at the request of governmental authorities conducting an investigation.


We use cookies to record session information and store non-identifiable visitor preferences, such as preferred font size. Session information is encrypted and identifiable only to servers at This session information helps recognize you as a repeat visitor and to track traffic patterns on our site. We use this information to make Fictionaut more user-friendly.

Fictionaut may obtain IP addresses from users. We will use this information to monitor and prevent fraud, diagnose problems, and (anonymously) estimate demographic information.

We have appropriate security measures in place in our physical facilities to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of information that we have collected from you at our site. Regardless of these efforts by us, no data transmission over the public Internet can be guaranteed secure. We encourage our users to use unique passwords and to rotate them often.
