What personal data we collect and why we collect it
We may collect personal data, such as name, email address, any data submitted by you in messages, and technical data such as cookies and analytics data. This information is collected via contact forms and mailing list subscriptions.
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
We collect names, email addresses and message contents of people who send communications via the contact form. This data is kept indefinitely for customer service purposes. The information is not sold or given to other businesses for marketing purposes.
We also collect names and email addresses for the purposes of maintaining a mailing list. This list is kept in MailChimp and is used to communicate with subscribers about the book. It is kept in the Mailchimp database until the user unsubscribes. It is not sold or given to other businesses for marketing purposes.
If you leave a comment on our site you have the option of saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.
If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.
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.
Embedded content from other websites
