This and subsequent guest book related pages (if you sign the guest
book) is a cookie that will help the script to cut down on the SPAM
guest books are prone to. The script will also initiate an
e-mail that will notify Rowena about a guest book entry. This
way, she and the web mistress, can keep the guest book monitored and
within the Safe Surf labelling for this site.
Please remember that only a name and comment are required fields for
the guest book. If you have concerns about minors signing the
guest book, or that your e-mail address will be harvested by SPAM bots,
please do not put an e-mail address in that field. We have no
control over SPAM bots that spider the net. We will not
personally collect any e-mail addresses or web sites for advertisers.
By signing the guest book, you agree to allow other web visitors to
view your comments. We will contact you (if a valid e-mail is
available) should we wish to use the comment or portion of the comment
in another venue (such as a huge compliment or great review about one
of Rowena's books). If a valid e-mail is not available, we
may still use it unless you send a private e-mail directly to Rowena or
the web mistress saying it may not be used in any other form elsewhere.
Further, if you leave a valid e-mail address in the guest book, we will
feel that this is an e-mail address we can use to tell you about
Rowena's future book releases.
We reserve the right to delete any guest book entry.
Some pages have a link to Amazon.com to order Rowena's books and other
products. This link sets a cookie to track the fact that you
are looking at possibly buying her book(s), music, t-shirts, etc., and
also tells us if any are purchased. Again, this does not
track any personal information about who you are. It is only
an aid for the web mistress and Rowena to see if the presentation of
books is effective or not.
