What Information Does This Site Collect?
I collect voluntary subscribers to my newsletter on this website. If you choose to subscribe, the only personal information I collect from you is your email address. I don’t require anything else from you, but if you want, you can of course share more by emailing me, commenting on my blog, or chatting with me on social media. I would never give your email address or any other information about you to anyone else.
Subscribers may unsubscribe at any time. Every newsletter contains an unsubscribe-link. All personal information I have of you will be deleted upon unsubscribing, but you may also ask for all your data to be deleted at any time.
I track open rates and click rates on my newsletters. The purpose of this data is to help me write better newsletters and provide content that interests you.
My blog doesn’t have a subscribe-function because I haven’t installed Jetpack or any similar plugin. The only way to “follow” my blog is through the Entries RSS-feed (see the bottom of the sidebar) or Goodreads, but it’s possible to leave comments on any blog post. Leaving a comment requires submitting a name and an email address. The email address won’t be shown publicly. All comments on blog posts are moderated by me. They won’t appear in the blog before I’ve personally read them and approved them. If you ever want to delete a comment you’ve left on my blog, drop me a note through the contact form and I’ll take care of it.
Giveaways and Contests
If you enter a giveaway, your email address is collected. If you win a physical prize, you’ll be asked to give your name and physical address. I only keep address information as long as it’s necessary for mailing the prize, after which I delete it.
Non-personal Information
This website may collect non-personal information about visitors when they interact with the site. This information may include the IP address, browser name, means of connection to the site, and other non-personal information.

Visitors may choose to set their web browser to refuse cookies, or to send an alert when cookies are being sent. If they do so, note that some parts of the site may not function properly.
How Is the Information Used?
Newsletter subscribers’ emails will only be used for receiving the newsletters.
Giveaway entrants will be sent emails only about the giveaway, unless they also signed up for the newsletter.
Information on which newsletter links are clicked on will help me choose links that interest readers in future newsletters.
The information is never shared with a third party.
Third-party links
My website, my blog and my newsletters include third-party links. The sites I link to have their own policies and you should read those before subscribing or purchasing from them.
Security of Information
I own the server my website is on, so the only people who have access to my website data are me (responsible for the content), and my husband (an IT professional who’s responsible for the technical framework). We’re dedicated to keeping this website as secure as possible. Should a data breach ever occur, subscribers will be notified within 7 days.
