Winterfall LLC, the parent company of Hard Case Crime, is committed to maintaining your confidence and trust, and accordingly maintains the following privacy policy to protect the personal information you provide online.

To make this notice easy to find, we make a link to it available on our home page and at every point where personally identifiable information may be requested. Questions regarding this policy should be directed to

What information do we collect? How do we use it?
We collect voluntarily disclosed information (such as name, e-mail address, and/or postal address) from Web site visitors who choose to sign up for our mailing list and/or promotions. We only use such information to inform you about additional products or services that we believe may be of interest to you. We use return e-mail addresses to answer the e-mail we receive.

Will we disclose the information collected to outside parties?
Winterfall LLC does not sell, trade or rent your personal information to others. The only outside parties to whom we might provide your information are the publisher and distributor of Hard Case Crime (formerly Dorchester Publishing, currently Titan Publishing), for purposes of fulfilling orders you place, offering promotions related to Hard Case Crime or other book series we think you might enjoy, or similar purposes.

Is there anything else I should know?
Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online — for example on message boards, through e-mail or in chat areas — that information can be collected and used by others. In addition, the privacy policies of other Web sites will vary. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of any Web sites that we link to, including those maintained by Titan Publishing.

In short, if you provide personal information online that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return. It is ultimately your responsibility to maintain the secrecy of your personal information to the extent you feel appropriate or necessary. We encourage you to be careful and to ask questions before you disclose your personal information to others.

Your consent
By using our Web site and/or choosing to provide personal information to us, you consent to the collection and use of this information by Winterfall LLC. If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes on this page so that you can always be aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances we disclose it.

A special note concerning children’s privacy.
While Hard Case Crime books are not intended for children, the safety of children is obviously very important to us. Children should always ask a parent or guardian for permission before sending personal information to anyone online.
