Privacy Policy

• I value your privacy and collect no more personal data than necessary.

Website
• In maintaining this informational website, which is powered by WordPress.com, I currently use no third-party plug-ins or analytics tools. I do not manually add any cookies or trackers, and there is currently no comments section or registration process by which personal data is gathered.
• WordPress automatically places some cookies and also collects and provides some visitor data, such as which websites or search terms visitors arrive from and which country they are in. The associated privacy policy can be found here: https://automattic.com/privacy/

Author newsletter
• When you sign up to my author newsletter, the sign-up form collects personal data in the form of your name and email address.
• Mailchimp, the industry-leading service provider I use to manage my newsletter, also automatically collects and provides the time and IP address of each sign-up in order to maintain a record of subscriber consent. The associated privacy policy can be found here: https://mailchimp.com/legal/privacy/
• I will not share this personal data with any third party unless doing so is necessary to continue delivering the newsletter you signed up to receive, for instance if I move from Mailchimp to another reputable newsletter management service, or unless doing so is required by law.
• Every newsletter email I send contains contact details and an unsubscribe link. You can request to see or amend your personal data, or to have it deleted, at any time.

• I take sensible security precautions, both physical and digital, to protect your data.
• Any changes to the above information will be clearly expressed in this privacy policy.
