What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Analytics

Traffic and visitor behavior is tracked on this website to help us know what visitors are interested in and where the website may be improved.

Newsletter Signup

With this form, we will be collecting your name and email so that we can send you the newsletter. We may also send you promotions about book releases or other opportunities.

Who we share your data with

We use Google Analytics, so your website browsing behavior for this site is shared with Google. When you sign up to receive the newsletter, the contact information that you provide is stored with our mailing service so that we can send the newsletter email. Your information is not used in any other way by us. Currently, our mailing service is with MailChimp, but we may be using a different mailing service in the future.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
