First, I’m not a lawyer, so I’m going to be as plainspoken in this as I possibly can.
You need to be an adult to use my site, especially if you’re going to leave comments or otherwise submit any of your private data, such as your email address, to me. If you’re not old enough, come back when you are.
If you leave a comment, it requires a name (maybe you’re using a fake one, I don’t know :D), an email address, and your comments.
My site logs your IP address and your browser user agent string when you submit a comment.
If you ever want your comments and this associated data removed from my site just email me using the contact me address here on the site. I’ll be happy to permanently delete any and all comments you’ve made.
If you email me through my email address (as listed on the contact me page), I keep a copy, because who doesn’t keep email these days? But if you want it gone forever, I’ll delete it for you and never think of it again. :D
I always try to be accommodating.
However, if you leave the kind of comment or send the kind of email that is criminal in nature, I will probably just turn that over to the proper authorities instead. No smiley this time, because that kind of stuff is serious business and I’d rather not make light of it.
My site has a form on it for a New Release Notification List. If you submit your email address to me with that form, you’ll be signed up to that email list. I use Mailchimp for serving that list and it’s set to double opt-in. Meaning you must verify your email address to start receiving those emails. If you don’t verify your address, you won’t be signed up to the list. This stops malicious subscriptions. Hopefully, you don’t have anyone doing that to you. :o If you ever want to unsubscribe, there is a link in the email that makes it easy to do. If you want all data about you removed from my records of that email list, just email me and I’ll permanently delete you and all your data. If you don’t want to be there, I don’t want you to be there either. :D
That said, I always prefer that you buy my books wherever it is most convenient for you. I’m just happy that you are here, and hopefully, reading and enjoying my books. :D
If you have any questions about these policies, just email me! You can find the address on my contact me page.
