Legal Stuff

EU Laws require websites such as this to have a Cookies Policy. In addition, because I have a mailing list, I also need to have a Privacy Policy that outlines how I use the email addresses I collect.

Simple versions

Cookies

This site runs on WordPress, which sets some cookies to make it run properly. Google also tracks the number of hits and where they come from, but this does not record your personal details. That’s it.

Privacy

If you email me using the email form on the Contact page, your email address will be stored in my own email addressbook. I will only contact you in respect of the original query, and will never pass your email on to anyone else. I will delete your address if you ask me to.

If you sign up to my newsletter, your email will be stored by a service called MailerLite, who are fully compliant with EU regulations. I will never share my mailing list with anyone else, or use it for anything other than sending out newsletters. You can unsubscribe at any time.

I minimise the amount of your data stored by only collecting your email address, not your name. The only other information that might be collected would include things like whether you are interested in being a beta reader or receiving Advance Review Copies.

Cookie Policy

As with most websites, this site uses cookies. These are small files downloaded to your computer to help the website work more smoothly.

This page briefly describes how cookies are used and why they are useful, and how you can prevent the site using cookies if you wish to (although some things may not work properly if you do this).

Preventing cookies

You can turn off cookies using the settings on your web browser. See the Help section on your browser for how to do this.

How the website uses cookies

The site runs on WordPress, which uses cookies for things like blog comments. You can see an explanation of WordPress cookies here: https://en.support.wordpress.com/cookies.

The site uses pop-up windows to encourage you to sign up to my newsletter. Cookies are used to remember if you have already seen the pop-up and when, and whether you have already signed up, so that you don’t keep seeing the pop-up.

Third-party cookies

In addition to our own cookies, we may also use various third-parties cookies to report usage statistics of the service. At present, this is done through Google Analytics. Their cookies policy is on this page: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en . There will be no adverts on my site, other than for my own books, and these will not depend on cookies.

What are your choices regarding cookies

If you’d like to delete cookies or instruct your web browser to delete or refuse cookies, please visit the help pages of your web browser.

Please note, however, that if you delete cookies or refuse to accept them, you might not be able to use all of the features we offer, you may not be able to store your preferences, and some of our pages might not display properly.

Privacy Policy

I respect your privacy regarding any information I may collect from you or which you may provide to me, in the circumstances set out below.

This privacy policy explains how I collect, use, communicate, disclose, safeguard, and otherwise make use of your personally identifiable information (“Personal Data”).

I will only collect and use your Personal Data where:

  • I have lawful grounds to do so, including to comply with my legal obligations;
  • I am performing a contract with you for my services; and
  • I have legitimate interests in using your Personal Data and your interests and fundamental rights do not override those interests.

For the purposes of the EU General Data Protection Regulation ((EU) 2016/679) (“GDPR”), I, Jayne Davis, am the “data controller”. If you have any questions about this policy or about how I use your Personal Data, please contact me via my contact details at the end of this policy.

This policy is effective as of May 15th, 2018. I review my privacy practices on an ongoing basis, and as such I may change this privacy policy from time to time. Please check this page frequently to ensure you are familiar with its current content.

Personal Data I collect via my website Jayne Davis Romance (the “Website”)

Personal Data that you provide to me

I only collect your email address when you sign up to the newsletter or sign up to receive free content, including books.

Data that I collect automatically
I automatically collect certain information when you visit my Website – such as the type of browser and operating system you are using, and the domain name of your Internet service provider. This information is not linked with any Personal Data.

I may also collect data automatically through cookies on the Website (see the cookies policy above).

Use of your Personal Data

I will only use your Personal Data when the law allows me to. Most commonly, I use your Personal Data to:

  • process and manage your use of the Website;
  • respond to your questions, comments, and requests;
  • where you have opted-in to receive marketing from me, deliver communications that may be of interest to you;
  • improve the Website through analysis of information.

Sharing of your Personal Data

I take your privacy seriously and will not share your Personal Data with others, except as permitted by applicable law or as set out below:

 

I share Personal Data as necessary with third parties who provide services or functions on my behalf and who require the information to provide those specific services to me. At present this includes only the service that collects email addresses for my newsletter.

 

Retention periods for use of your Personal Data

I will use and store your Personal Data only for as long as necessary, bearing in mind the uses of your Personal Data as described in this privacy policy and otherwise as communicated to you. I review the Personal Data I hold at regular intervals and delete permanently or anonymise any Personal Data which is no longer necessary.

You can unsubscribe from my newsletter at any time, and your details will be removed.

Children

This Website and my services are aimed at adults, and I do not knowingly collect any Personal Data relating to children aged under 15 years old. If you are under the age of 15, please do not provide me with any of your Personal Data, including your email address.

Access to and control over your Personal Data

You have legal rights under applicable law in relation to your Personal Data. You can ask the following questions, or take the following actions, at any time by contacting me via email jayne@jaynedavisromance.co.uk or via my postal address:

Change of purpose

I will only use your Personal Data for the purposes for which I collected it, unless I reasonably consider that I need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose. If you wish to have an explanation as to how the processing for the new purpose is compatible with the original purpose, please contact me.

If I need to use your Personal Data for an unrelated purpose, I will notify you and I will explain the legal basis which allows me to do so.
