Digital privacy is more important than ever, and I recognize and respect this. As such, the only piece of personal information I’ll ever ask you for is your email address. And the only reason I should ever need it is to either send you a giveaway or to send you a newsletter.
Please note that all of my content is directed toward adults, age 18 and older. If you are under the age of 18, do not provide me with any of your personal data, including your email address.
You have the following rights in relation to your personal data:
- You can see what personal data I hold about you (if any), and ask why I’m holding it and who it could be disclosed to
- You can ask me to change or correct your personal data
- You can ask me to delete your personal data
- You can object to having your personal data processed
- You can ask me to restrict the processing of your personal data
- You can withdraw any of the consents you’ve given me regarding the processing of your personal data
- You can let me know of any concerns you have about third party use of your personal data
The only personal data I will request from you is your email address. I do this so that I can send you newsletters and offer giveaways to newsletter subscribers.
My newsletter is run through MailChimp. They take care of securing the data collected when people sign up for my newsletter. This data may include your email address, and the date and time when you opted in to my newsletter. It may also include whether you have clicked on links in specific campaigns so that I can send you appropriate follow-up information.
My newsletter sign up forms clearly state what you’re agreeing to as well. Here’s an example of the text:
Cassandra Chandler will use the information you provide on this form to provide updates and marketing through email. Your email will also be used to enable you to access giveaways that are managed through BookFunnel. Because our email and giveaway lists are integrated, if you do not indicate your consent for both uses by clicking on the two check boxes that confirm your consent, you will not be eligible to receive email or giveaways from us.
You can change your mind at any time by clicking the unsubscribe link in the footer of any email you receive from us, or by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will treat your information with respect. For more information about our privacy practices please visit our website: https://cassandra-chandler.com/privacy-policy
By clicking, “Subscribe to list” below, you agree that we may process your information in accordance with all of these terms. Remember, because our email and giveaway lists are integrated, if you do not indicate your consent for both uses by clicking on the two check boxes that confirm your consent, you will not be eligible to receive email or giveaways from us.
In addition to this, there are two required check boxes on the sign up forms where you confirm the following:
- Yes, Cassandra Chandler may send me email
- Yes, Cassandra Chandler may use my email for Giveaways
I have always used what’s called a double opt-in system with MailChimp. This means that you have to log in to your email account and manually confirm that you’d like to receive email from me by joining my newsletter list. I don’t want anyone to be added to my list who doesn’t want to be there!
Every newsletter has a clear “unsubscribe” option at the bottom. If you want to be sure your information is deleted, send me an email at email@example.com, and I’ll work with MailChimp to get this taken care of.
Aside from that, I may receive your email address from contests so that I can send you giveaway prizes. I can also delete that information if you send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and ask me to do so.
Thanks for reading!
