Privacy Policy

paradisichronicles.wordpress.com Privacy Policy

This privacy policy discloses the privacy practices for the website paradisichronicles.wordpress.com. This privacy policy applies solely to information collected by this website. It will notify you of the following:

  1. What personally identifiable information is collected from you through the website, how it is used and with whom it may be shared.
  2. What choices are available to you regarding the use of your data.
  3. The security procedures in place to protect the misuse of your information.
  4. How you can correct any inaccuracies in the information.

Information Collection, Use, and Sharing

We don’t collect or keep anything other than your email address and name and whatever you voluntarily provide. We will never sell or rent this information to anyone. We don’t share it for free either.

We will use your information to respond to you, if you ask for a response. We will not share your information with any third party.

We would never contact you out of the blue just because you visited our site. If you subscribe to our newsletter you can expect a newsletter when we have new publications or promotions. If you subscribe to our blog feed, you’ll receive a post at most once or twice a month.

You can unsubscribe from the newsletter or the blog very easily at any time, using the usual methods. There’s an unsubscribe link in every newsletter and on the right side of the website, you have a manage link under You Are Following This Blog that permits you to unsubscribe, or if you are using an RSS reader there will be instructions on how to unfollow this blog.

Here’s what gets collected where:

  1. Newsletter: You supply your email address and first and last name, which we keep.  We manage our newsletter through MailChimp, so your information is stored at that site also.
  2. Blog: You supply your email address and name, which we keep.
  3. Blog comments: If you choose to comment and provide your name and email address, we don’t use this information for anything, especially not to harvest email addresses.
  4. Contact: If you send us an email, we would only use that email to respond to you.

Sharing information

We don’t sell anything directly from our website or via our newsletters, so we don’t collect anything more sensitive than your email address, which you give voluntarily. There’s no place for you to log in, so no passwords are collected. If you want to buy one of our books, you can follow a link to a bookstore. Nothing about that link-following is recorded here.

We don’t share any information with anybody.

Third party cookies

Our site links to many bookstores, like Amazon and Kobo. Some of these sites may create a cookie telling them where you came from. We don’t create it or keep that information, but it could be created on your computer as a result of your clicking that link at our site.

Similarly, we have buttons to go to our social media sites, like Facebook. We don’t track your use of these buttons, but Facebook, Twitter, etc. might create a cookie saying that you got there via our website.

What’s a cookie?

A cookie is a small text file that a website saves on your computer or mobile device when you visit the site. It enables the website to remember your actions and preferences (such as login, language, font size and other display preferences) over a period of time, so you don’t have to keep re-entering them whenever you come back to the site or browse from one page to another.

You can control or delete cookies as you wish – for details, see aboutcookies.org. You can delete all the cookies that are already on your computer and you can set most browsers to prevent them from being placed. If you do this, however, you may have to manually adjust some preferences every time you visit a site and some services and functionalities may not work. Visit your browser’s help information to find out how to do that.

Links

This website contains links to other sites, like online bookstores. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the content or privacy practices of any other site. We encourage users to notice when they leave paradisichronicles.wordpress.com and to read the privacy statements of any other site that collects personal information.

Updates

Our Privacy Policy may change from time to time and all updates will be posted on this page.

If you feel that we are not abiding by this privacy policy, you should contact us immediately at mlouisalocke@gmail.com or use the contact form.
