How We Use Your Personal Information
Faber and Faber Ltd will not disclose personal information gathered on this website to any third parties without the prior consent of you or your parent/guardian.
By providing an email address, you give us permission to send you email updates about the website and Philip Ardagh’s ‘Grubtown Tales’ series. You can unsubscribe from this service at any time by clicking on the ‘unsubscribe’ link found at the bottom of any email communications.
The Grubtown name generator will provide children with a safe, anonymous username to use on the website when submitting a news article to the Grubtown Daily Herald. If a submitted story is being featured online, we will display only the author’s Grubtown name.
