Privacy Policy

This page is to let you know about the personal information I collect about you, what I do with it, and how you can choose how I use it.

Cookies

I use Google Analytics to track what posts and pages are viewed when and how. These cookies do not gather any personal information about you.  Nor can they be used to identify you. You can opt out of Google’s advertising tracking cookie or use a browser plugin to opt out of all Google Analytics tracking software, or not visit my website.

Emails sent to members of my mailing list through Mailerlite also contain cookies. These cookies let me know if you have opened an email and/or clicked a link within the email. They record your email address, IP address, the date and time you opened an email and/or clicked a link. They help me see whether an email has performed well or if I need to make some changes in the emails I send you. If you object to the use of these cookies, you must unsubscribe from my newsletter with the link provided at the bottom of it.

Mailing list

When you sign up for my mailing list, I ask you for:

  • your name, so I know what to call you
  • your email address, so I know where to send the email.

When you sign up, you will be asked to provide your consent to receive email communications and customised online advertising. Your information will be stored by Mailerlite, in accordance with their privacy policy.

If you agree to receive email communications, your name and email address will be used to send you my email newsletter. I email my fans when I have a new book out, when I’m running a deal on a book I’ve already published, or if I’m involved in an ebook promotion I think they’d like. You can unsubscribe from my newsletter at any time using the unsubscribe link at the bottom of the email
