Before you continue to visit this site, or sign up for a newsletter, I’d like you to look over some basic info about cookie use and what data you’re allowing this site to collect when you visit.
WHAT does this website collect?
- Your email address, if you choose to subscribe to a newsletter.
- Technical information necessary to the routine operation of the web site and server.
This is information such as the IP address of your computer and it’s collected automatically by the web server.
HOW IS THIS DATA USED?
The technical information is used for normal communication between your computer and the web server and is stored in server logs. The hosting company may use it to identify and troubleshoot problems with the server and web site, evaluate load and resource utilization, identify malicious activity, etc. This data is not used for advertising or profiling site visitors.
By itself, this information can’t identify you personally, but put together with other data, like account information and logs from your internet service provider, it might. Pretty much every site on the internet collects this info automatically.
Your email address is only used to send you the newsletters you requested. Because of how mail processing works, it may also be stored in server logs.
Your email address will only be used to send you the email you asked for, which will normally be information about books, new releases, giveaways and promotions.
You can unsubscribe any time by clicking on the ‘unsubscribe’ button at the bottom of each newsletter. If you have a problem with the automatic unsubscribe, you can always email me at the email address on the website and I’ll do it for you.
Your email address is deleted from the active newsletter mailing list as soon as the automatic unsubscribe request is processed or when a request is received to remove it manually.
Information like email and IP addresses may be retained indefinitely for purposes related to site operation like blocking malicious activity or spam.
DATA SHARING & ACCESS
None of the data collected on this site will be shared or sold to third party data collection services. The web hosting service has access to everything on their servers and both they and I will comply with legal requests for information.
