It is my policy to respect your privacy regarding any information I may collect while operating my website and email communications. Accordingly, I have developed this privacy policy in order for you to understand how I collect and make use of personal information.

I have outlined my privacy policy below.

  • I will collect personal information by lawful means and with the consent of the individual concerned.
  • At the time of collecting personal information, I will identify the purposes for which information is being collected.
  • I will only use personal information for the purposes I identify.
  • Personal data should be relevant to the purposes for which it is to be used, and, to the extent necessary for those purposes, should be accurate, complete, and up-to-date.
  • I will protect personal information by using reasonable security safeguards against loss or theft, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use or modification.
  • I will make readily available to customers information about policies and practices relating to the management of personal information.
  • I will only retain personal information for as long as necessary for the fulfillment of those purposes.

I currently collect information about individuals in the following circumstances

  • Where an individual consents to receive information about my books, I collect a first name and an email address for the purposes of communicating with the individual.  The individual may unsubscribe at any time.
  • Where an individual registers as a reviewer of my books, I collect their first name, email address and review page url. The individual may unsubscribe from the reviewer register at any time.
  • Where an individual communicates directly with an inquiry, we may collect and process information provided as part of the inquiry.

I use third-party processors to manage my email communication and to enable readers to download free stories and excerpts. I am satisfied that the processors I use are compliant with the relevant legal requirements.

I am committed to operating in accordance with these principles in order to ensure that your information remains confidential. This policy may change from time to time at my sole discretion.
