IMPORTANT PRIVACY INFORMATION

 

Let me start by saying that I'm not personally interested in accessing or storing anyone's information.

However, this is the internet, and there really isn't any privacy online. So, the following explanation is an outline of what is likely to happen with the information of the fabulous people who visit this site.

Sometimes people will send me their information voluntarily for a particular purpose, usually related to their books or their work as an author.
If that information is sent via email in the form of an author interview for publication on my blog, the information they send me will be shared publicly. After all, that's the purpose of their choosing to send me that information.

I might also keep a copy of their email on my email server, just in case I need to contact them in relation to their publicity and promotion as an author.
Personal details will not be shared by me unless explicitly asked to do so in writing by the sender.

When someone submits a comment on a blog post, their name, email address, and the details of their message may be saved on the server. They are stored to help me, as the owner of the blog, see, manage, and respond to the comment that each person has chosen to leave. Once again, though, they're not saved by me personally.

When someone signs up for an email subscription, that's an indication of your consent that your name, email, and IP address are going to be stored by the email service so that you can receive the marvellously bookish and non-spammy emails they asked for.

I can't control what information third parties such as Wordpress, MailChimp or email servers access or save, but once someone has chosen to be on the internet, that comes with the understanding that social media and email platforms are going to use cookies and other clever things to gather statistics.  Those things are encoded, so unless a visitor tells people they've visited my site or my blog, chances are that I won't even know what I'm not sharing with anyone.

I have, to the best of my ability ensured that those third parties I use are GDPR compliant in their storage and use of data.

All Wix sites do, however, use cookies. Cookies are small pieces of data stores on a site visitor's browser, usually used to keep track of their movements and actions on a site. 
In accordance with the GDPR, the owner of this website is required to inform visitors that cookies are in use on this website. That is stated in plain English in the footer of every page, and in more detail here. 

The cookies used on Wix sites are: 

 

 

 

 

In short, I don't save any information I don't need to, and I'm only ever going to be honest and polite with my visitors.

You're welcome.

It is now compulsory for me to tell you that this website uses cookies. Please check my privacy policy for  more information.

Welcome to the internet, where privacy is illusory and people will continue to browse anyway.
