Privacy Policy and GDRP

Book alerts mailing list:

I collect email addresses, and any name that the user attaches to them, for the purpose of emailing them to announce a new book’s availability. All such addresses have been obtained explicitly for that purpose, and as such consent for that use is explicit and the new legislation does not require me to break the basic purpose of collection by emailing the list to request they re-confirm.

Every email I send out has a clearly stated, simple method to unsubscribe (basically, a reply saying unsubscribe) and any such instruction is implemented by me in a timely manner.

Any new subscription will be treated in exactly the same way – an explicit request to be emailed a new book alert will result in an addition to the mailing list for that purpose.

This information (name (or user name) and email address) will not be sold or shared with any third party under any circumstances other than a legally enforceable requirement by the government to do so, or an explicit consent by you to do so.

This information (name (or user name) and email address) will be retained until you unsubscribe.

If you feel that the use of your data is illegal, please contact Information Commissioners Office (ICO) in the UK.

IF YOU DO NOT CONSENT TO THE ABOVE, PLEASE DO NOT REQUEST TO BE ADDED TO THE MAILING LIST.

 

Website comments:

To any users of this site who wish to comment on the blogs: I do not collect cookies or IP addresses. The site is hosted by WordPress however, and they do, in order to facilitate the function of the web site and meet their legal obligations. WordPress stores your name (or user name), IP address, email address and any comment you make. It is not possible for me to turn this feature off. Please refer to the WordPress privacy policy for their obligations and responsibilities:

Since the explicit purpose of a comment in a blog is to enable communication, I regard a comment as a clear affirmative, specific, and unambiguous action (as defined by the GDPR) giving me consent to store this information, and permission to contact you through comment in the blog or by email.

This information (name (or user name), comment and email address) will not be sold or shared with any third party under any circumstances other than a legally enforceable requirement by the government to do so, or an explicit consent by you to do so.

The information (name (or user name) and email address) will be retained until you unsubscribe.

Should you wish your comments on the blog to be removed, you must request those comments to be removed.

If you feel that the use of your data is illegal, please contact Information Commissioners Office (ICO) in the UK.

IF YOU DO NOT CONSENT TO THE ABOVE, PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE A COMMENT ON THE SITE.
