How I Collect and Use Information
I collect the following types of information about you:
* Information you provide me directly:
- your name
- your email address
* We may provide you with a username and a password, so you can access members only info on this website.
* I may retain any messages you send through our website “Get in touch” section, and we may publish your photo or review, but only if you have requested us to do so.
* I may directly collect analytics data, or use third-party analytics tools and services (I use Google analytics), to help us measure traffic for the website – this means that your visits to the website will be added to my statistics, so that I know how many people have visite the website. That’s all. 🙂
I use your email address to communicate directly with you. You will receive my newsletters (usually once a week, or a fortnight, with links to new articles, in case you have missed them), and an email when I have something new to say about my latest novel or work in progress! 🙂 You will also be the first to know about freebies and promotions. Please remember that you can unsubscribe or change your preferences to any of this at anytime. All you need to do is click at the bottom of the email/newsletter you receive.
* Sharing of Your Information
I WON’T share your information with anyone! That’s the best part! I want you to trust me and be comfortable and secure when you visit my website. So, I’ll keep your email address safe under lock and key!
* Keeping your information safe:
I care about the security of your information. In the future, I may create an area on the website just for members (imagine all the fun in there!). When I do, you will be able to create a username and a password. To protect your privacy and security, I take reasonable steps (such as requesting a unique password) to verify your identity before granting you access to your account. You are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your unique password and account information, and for controlling access to your email communications from this website, at all times.
