Privacy Policy

This page describes how the data I collect from you is used, and how you can control that use, if you wish.

Who I am

I am the owner of this site.  I write and/or edit the content of the pages and posts you find here.

I am the controller of the personal data you provide to me.

I only collect basic personal data about you, that you supply .  All the data is collected—that is, the data is provided by you through the form you complete on the Newsletter page.

  • No data I obtain is surmised by tracking you.
  • Nor is any data I obtain generated by algorithms.

I do not collect “sensitive” data, which can include data about race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender, political affiliations, etc.

The site is fully secured, with SSL certificates kept up to date.

Why I need your data

I collect only the most basic data (name, email) which allows me to send you a weekly newsletter with information relevant to indie fiction writers.

  • I do not track your movements beyond my site.
  • Third party applications such as Google Analytics will keep anonymous data on what pages you visit and links you click on, but no personal information is stored with that data.

Who I share your data with.

  1. Mailerlite stores your email and newsletter data, on a secure site. Their privacy policy is here.
  2. Every quarter, I download a backup copy of subscribers, which remains on a secondary hard drive, until a later copy replaces it.
  3. I do not share, rent or sell your data to any other second or third parties.

How long I keep your data.

  1. Data and preference information is kept by MailerLite forever. Even after unsubscribing, your data is kept in order to maintain your preferences if you re-subscribe at a later date.  There are options to have your data permanently removed.  See “How You Can Control Your Data”, below.
  2. Backup copies of subscribers is replaced every quarter by the newest copy.

How you can control your data.

  1. You can request to see what personal data is being stored in your profile at any time. Contact me at Cam@CameronCooperAuthor.com and request a copy of your profile on MailerLite.  This will be completed within 48 hours.
  2. You can also correct the information I have stored under your profile, if you wish. Contact me at Cam@CameronCooperAuthor.com and explain what changes you want made to your profile on MailerLite. This will be completed within 48 hours.
  3. Unsubscribing from my email list will not delete your data permanent (it is stored for later, if you choose to re-subscribe). However, you can request that your data be deleted permanently.  Mailerlite provide functions that will strip and delete any subscriber’s profile upon request.  Contact me at Cam@CameronCooperAuthor.com and request your profile on MailerLite be deleted.  This will be completed within 48 hours.

Everything else.

If you have any questions or concerns at all about the use and storage of your data, please contact me at Cam@CameronCooperAuthor.com.

If you are not satisfied with my response or believe I am not processing your personal data in accordance with the law you can contact the Information Commissioner’s Office at https://ico.org.uk/.
