Data privacy

Information about data privacy, affiliate advertising and cookies

Mailing list

If you sign up to my mailing list, I will use your name and email address to send you my free newsletter, events information and exclusive reader offers. I will never sell your details, nor pass them on to anyone else, unless I am required to by law.

I will keep your details until you unsubscribe from my mailing list. You can do this at any time using the unsubscribe link at the bottom of my e-newsletter.

I manage my mailing list through MailChimp. You can read their privacy policy here. MailChimp is a US company and they store your personal data securely in the cloud. Your data may therefore be transferred outside the European Economic Area (EEA). By joining my mailing list, you agree that your information may be transferred, stored and processed outside the EEA.

Buying a book from my website

If you buy a book directly from me via the shopping cart on this website, I will use the personal data you supply for legitimate business purposes, such as processing your order and letting you know about future books. My shopping cart uses PayPal, and I do not keep your payment details on file myself. You can view PayPal’s privacy policy here.

PayPal is a US company, so your data may be transferred outside the EEA. By buying a book from this website, you agree that your information may be transferred, stored and processed outside the EEA.

I will keep your postal address long enough to fulfil your order successfully. I may keep your name and email address for much longer (up to seven years), so that I can let you know when I write a new book. (Creativity takes time!) You can ask me to remove your details from my records at any time by sending me an email.

Please note: I will only send you regular e-newsletters if you select this option during the checkout process. You can unsubscribe from these at any time using the link on the bottom of the e-newsletter. For more information, see the Mailing list section above.

Buying a book from another online store

If you follow links from my website and buy a book or audiobook from another online store (such as Amazon.co.uk, Bandcamp or others), this store will have full responsibility for processing and fulfilling your order.

I will not receive any personal data you supply them, except when you choose to sign up to my mailing list from Bandcamp. (In this case, I will receive your name and email address only and process it as described in the Mailing list section.) You can read Bandcamp’s privacy policy here.

Affiliate advertising

I am a participant in the Amazon EU Associates Programme, an affiliate advertising programme that allows websites to earn advertising fees by linking to Amazon.co.uk. You can read Amazon.co.uk’s privacy policy here.

Cookies

Cookies are small files that are stored in your browser’s directories when you visit a website. My website uses third party service providers (such as Amazon.co.uk and others) that may place cookies on your browser. To find out more about these cookies and how to manage or delete them, please read my cookie policy.

Concerns

If you have any concerns about how I process your personal data, please send me an email or write to me at Cedarbird, PO Box 348, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE6 9BU, United Kingdom. You can also get help and guidance from the Information Commissioner’s Office.
