I take your privacy very seriously. www.clareconnelly.com (hereafter "This Website") is intended to act as an information delivery website, allowing me to connect with my readers. Content will include book links, blog links, character analyses and contact information. 

There is a purely opt-in newsletter service, which is intended for readers of romance novels. Content of the newsletter isn't explicit, however it is written with an adult audience in mind. I cannot take responsibility for minors who opt-in to the delivery service and urge all parents of minors to monitor their web use, in line with the Children Online Privacy Protection Act.

The newsletter requires only an email address, with the provision of a name being optional. No address, age or other personal data is required to subscribe. This information is stored by GoDaddy's Mail Marketing servers. I have kept the information required deliberately minimal to avoid building an online snapshot of any of my users (which feels a bit invasive, doesn't it!). 

My website is hosted by GoDaddy who provide to me minimal, anonymous data for the purpose of site traffic analytics. Much like google analytics, GoDaddy provides a record to me of how many visitors have come to the site in a given time period, and where their visit originated from. To the best of my knowledge, this is anonymous data and does not include any more personal information. 

If you would like more information on the data that GoDaddy collects and delivers, please contact them directly. 

If you have signed up to my newsletter and no longer wish to subscribe, or if you have been signed up in error, please contact me for immediate removal. 

This Website features links to third-party websites. These websites operate fully independently from me, and I cannot accept any responsibility or liability for the privacy practices of such third parties nor the availability of these external sites or resources. The appearance of these links on my website is not an endorsement. 

I do not share information regarding my website's visitors with anyone. You are entitled to ask, at any time, for the data that is being kept on your activity by any website/company. I do not keep any data beyond the faceless/anonymous analytics provided by my website hosting service, but wish to make you aware of your statutory rights.  If such information is requested from me, I will not be able to provide any user-specific data as I do not collect it, but I will at any time remove users from my mailing list. 

This Website (and the affiliated/redirect platform www.clareconnelly.co.uk) operates in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679.

This privacy policy will be updated from time to time, and you will be notified by a revised Privacy Policy being posted onto this website. You may check back regularly to monitor this policy. 

This version of the Privacy Policy was published on the 21st of April 2018.
