We will not ask for personal information unless we truly need it (for example, to send requested information or contact contest winners.) Nor will we retain your information without your explicit permission nor share it with anyone except to comply with the law or protect our rights and the rights of others.
We may collect your data, upon your consent, for newsletter mailing lists, in order to send you marketing updates and other information related to our books or book-related deals. We may also retain your data if you sign up for notifications of new posts or new comments on our blog at our website, http://misteriopress.com.
The data we hold will only include the name (or nickname) you gave when signing up for a mailing list or blog notifications, along with the email address you provided.
If you use a website contact form to reach us, your information will not be retained. Your name and email will never be added to any mailing list without your explicit consent. Your data will never be sold or given to third parties.
Your data will be stored electronically on the data processor of choice (currently WordPress) and we will take reasonable precautions to protect information about you against unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction. It will be stored for ten years, after which you may need to resubscribe to continue to receive notifications.
Our website analytical programs may gather information about your usage of the website (e.g., page views, button clicks, etc.) This information is processed to provide aggregate data regarding patterns of usage on the site, to help us improve content and share relevant information. This aggregate data may also be used to monitor and protect the security of the website, and to detect and prevent fraudulent behavior and other illegal activities and fight spam.
Aggregate data may be shared with others, but only after it has been de-identified so that the information could not reasonably be used to identify you. For instance, we might publish aggregate statistics about the use of the website.
There are only two circumstances under which we might share your individual data. As required by law, we may disclose information about you in response to a subpoena, court order, or other official and legally-binding governmental request. To protect rights, property or safety, we may disclose information about you when we believe in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property, rights, or safety of ourselves or others. For example, if we have a good faith belief that there is an imminent danger of death or serious physical injury to you or to anyone else, we may disclose information related to the emergency without delay.
You can unsubscribe from email notifications regarding website postings by following the unsubscribe directions in those emails.
Or you can email firstname.lastname@example.org and request that your data be deleted or amended if incorrect.
Thank you for the privilege of allowing us to keep in touch!
