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 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 staff.
When contest organizers declare that the contest is complete, all submitted documents are deleted.
TextShelf follows recommended security practices to protect your information. This is not, however, a guarantee against unauthorized access: security hinges on users taking care to choose and manage strong passwords.
