When ordering or registering on my site, as appropriate, you may be asked to enter your name, email address or other details to help you with your experience.
When do I collect information?
I collect information – your email – from you when you subscribe to my newsletter.
How do I use your information?
I use your email to send you the newsletter you requested. I don’t sell anything on the website, though I do give individual book links to each of my books at various vendors which you must choose to click yourself. Sending the newsletter is the ONLY use I make of your email. It is never shown, sold to or used by anyone else for any purpose.
How do I protect your information?
I do not use vulnerability scanning and/or scanning to PCI standards.
I only provide articles, information and links that you must choose to click. I never ask for credit card numbers.
My website implements a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information.
All transactions are processed through a gateway provider and are not stored or processed on our servers.
Do I use ‘cookies’?
You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You do this through your browser settings. Since browser is a little different, look at your browser’s Help Menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookies.
I do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your Personally Identifiable Information.
As said, I provide clickable purchase links for my books at third party vendors which you must choose to click. These third-party sites have separate and independent privacy policies. I therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites.
I have not enabled Google AdSense on our site but we may do so in the future.

COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act)
When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under the age of 13 years old, the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, United States’ consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children’s privacy and safety online.
I do not specifically market to children under the age of 13 years old.

SO – what all this legal gobbledygook means is that when you request to be put on my newsletter mailing list your email will be put in a safe place so I can use it to send you my newsletters. If you don’t want to receive them anymore, just click the ‘unsubscribe’ link at the bottom, and your name and email will be removed. I don’t sell anything on the website, so I don’t collect credit card numbers or any other sensitive information. I do give links to my books at various vendors which you must choose to click. I will NEVER sell your name, email or anything else to any third party. That’s it.
