Site Privacy

TextShelf provides simple, trusted document submission and sharing among authorized reviewers.
Documents you upload are locked in secure AWS S3 storage.
Your documents can only be accessed by contest or program managers, reviewers they authorize, and site administrators when granted permission.
Authorized reviewers can view and download your documents. Reviewers are asked not to share, cite, or quote your work.
No information that you upload is shared beyond authorized contest or program staff.
When organizers declare that review process is complete, all submitted documents are deleted.
TextShelf follows recommended security practices to protect your information. We cannot, however, guarantee against unauthorized access. Security hinges on users taking care to choose and manage strong passwords, and on reviewers taking care to delete all accessed files.
