Generally, we don't like to collect any information from you that we don't actually need. And, on Story Explorer, we really don't need that much from you. So your privacy is pretty secure.
What we collect
We don't actively collect any personal information from you while you use the website. However, should you choose to join, we require you to provide a valid email address among other non-personal data. This is then stored in a secure database.

When you contact us
