The database for Writer's Trail is hosted in a protected webserver. Only the main administrator has access to it and he will not disclose such information.
Users' passwords are hashed with an algorithm that does not allow reverse engineering. Even in a case where the database is leaked, it'll be practically impossible with the current technology to discover the passwords. Even so, we recomend to the user to not use the same password in different services.

Google's advertising requirements can be summed up by Google's Advertising Principles. They are put in place to provide a positive experience for users. https://support.google.com/adwordspolicy/answer/1316548?hl=en
We use Google AdSense Advertising on our website.
We have implemented the following:
We along with third-party vendors, such as Google use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookies) and third-party cookies (such as the DoubleClick cookie) or other third-party identifiers together to compile data regarding user interactions with ad impressions, and other ad service functions as they relate to our website.
Opting out: Users can set preferences for how Google advertises to you using the Google Ad Settings page. Alternatively, you can opt out by visiting the Network Advertising initiative opt out page or permanently using the Google Analytics Opt Out Browser add on.
If you do not want your information going to the Highcharts server, avoid using the export service.
Projects and targets may be set as public in a opt-in individual basis (which means everything is private unless you make it otherwise). If they are set as public, it's possible to any person or machine to access the data if they have the link. This includes search engines, social networks and other sites that track content.
Once the user makes the page public, there's no guarantee that the data wasn't registered by any third-party service, even if the user makes it private once again. New changes to data after it was set private again won't be propagated anywhere, and Writer's Trail will stop to provide any data (new or old) about the resources made private to any other person besides the resource's owner.
Users are able to change their personal information by logging in to their account.

We do not specifically market to children under 13.
