What personal data I collect and why I collect it

When you visit this website and/or fill in forms on this website, some of your data may be retained and processed as follows:


If you have signed up to receive my writing newsletter, the information you provide, specifically your email address, will be stored by Mailchimp for the specific purpose of sending you the newsletters.

Mailchimp privacy policy and terms of use. By signing up to the newsletter or notifications, you agree to be bound by these policies and terms.

The newsletters may include giveaways, excerpts or full stories, news, and other information regarding my work. I may also tell you about other books I’ve enjoyed and what I’ve been doing. You will only receive these newsletters if you actively signed up on this website or directly through Mailchimp.

Some additional data, such as whether you opened the newsletters, may be stored. Mailchimp may also store your IP address and an impression of your sign-up form in order to confirm that you have consented to subscribing to the newsletter.

You can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any point.


Pages and blog posts on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


In common with most websites, certain information, such as IP address, user ID (if logged in), username (if logged in), user agent, visiting URL, referring URL, timestamp of event, browser language, country code, will be stored for the purposes of data analysis so that I can monitor website use and hopefully provide better content. This website uses WordPress Site Stats for this purpose. Information gathered may be processed by in order to perform the analysis.

This data is anonymised so that I cannot see any data that identifies a specific user. I am only able to see generalised data, such as the number of visits to a particular page, rather than who visited it.

This website respects the Do Not Track header (DNT). If you set your browser preferences to Do Not Track, then the Site Stats analytics will not track what you do on the website.

You can find out more about the data gathered and how it is processed at the Site Stats webpage. The WordPress Site Stats privacy policy is here.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data I hold about you, including any data you have provided to me. You can also request that I erase any personal data I hold about you. This does not include any data I am obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

If you have any concerns about the use or storage of your data, please feel free to contact me.
