I will never use the information collected for any other purpose than which it was intended ie. either to get your purchase to you or, if you have signed up for my email newsletter, to send you occasional information about my books.
What information is collected?
When ordering you will be asked to enter your name, e-mail address, postal address and phone number. I keep a record of these details, together with the details of your product selection on a secure server. If you sign-up to receive my email newsletter I only hold your name and email address.
I may keep a record of any email correspondence that I have with you. I may also collate statistics about website traffic and sales, but this information is collected on an anonymous basis.
If at any time you would like to unsubscribe from receiving future emails, you can simply follow the unsubscribe link.
Do I disclose any information to outside parties?
I do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information except to properly process and deliver your order. I only share your information with trusted third parties, such as PayPal and Jimdo, in order to operate the website and provide you with a service.
Your credit card details
I use PayPal as my payment gateway. Paypal, which is owned by eBay, is secured by multiple industrial data encryption, fraud detection and security technologies including solutions from VeriSign, the world's most respected certification body for internet firms. All supplied information is encrypted into PayPal's database. It is only accessible by those authorised with special access rights to PayPal's system. These people are required to keep the information confidential. I do not have access to this information.
Requests for your information
Phishing is the practice of tricking someone into surrendering private information for the purposes of identity theft.
In order to protect you against phishing I will never ask you to send or confirm financial information of any kind. As I use PayPal there is absolutely no need for me to know any of your financial details.
If you receive an e-mail claiming to be from me and requesting this type of information, please DO NOT RESPOND. Please forward a copy of the email to me so I may take further action.

However, your IP address is previously truncated by Google within member states of the European Union or in other states which are party to the agreement on the European Economic Area and is, as such, anonymized. Only in exceptional cases is a full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the United States and truncated there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of this service.
