Pretty much, I think your data should remain as private as possible–therefore, I collect and store as little as possible. That data is used only for the purposes you give me permission for, and will never be shared or sold.
I have a newsletter which requires a form signup and double opt-in through email. You will never be added to the newsletter list unless you have first opted in. Your data is used solely to send you the newsletter, which contains news about my books and short stories, freebies, updates, marketing stuff, and some fun recommendations–I will never sell or share your email or any of your other data, or use it for any other purpose. Your email address and IP address are recorded by Mailerlite, in line with their privacy and data collection information.
You can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time. You can also always get in touch with me if you have questions about how your data is being stored or used, or if you’d like me to forget all of that data.
If you leave a comment on my website, any data you give (name, email address, website) is recorded by WordPress along with your IP address. I will never share or sell that data, or use it for sales or marketing purposes. It will also never be used to add you to a mailing list. You can delete your comment at any time, or request that I delete it.
Again, if you have any questions or concerns about your privacy, your data, or how it’s being used or stored, please email me at eli_lang (at) outlook (dot) com.
