This policy describes how I protect and make use of the information you give me.

If you are asked to provide information, it will only be used in ways stated in this policy.

This privacy policy was last updated on 31 Oct 2019.

Why do I collect data from you?
I gather and use certain information about you in order to:

  • respond to your requests for information (e.g. my availability or a quote for reading and research services)

How do I use this data?
The data I collect is used as follows:

  • For my internal accounting processes (e.g. so I can invoice you) and so that I am compliant with my tax authority should it request an audit.

  • To contact you in response to your inquiry, order, quote, special offer or booking.

I will never use this data for marketing or promotion purposes without getting your permission in writing first (for example, to publish your testimonial for me on my website), or unless you have signed up to be notified about a specific offer. 

How do I use cookies?
A cookie is a small file placed on your computer’s hard drive. It enables my website to identify your computer as you view different pages on my website.

I will never lease, distribute or sell your information to third parties unless you give me written permission to do so, or I am required to do so by law.

How long do I keep your data for?
I do not delete data unless specifically requested to do so.

  • The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) requires me to keep records for 'at least 3 years’. 

  • Please ask if you want me to delete or amend your records. As long as I'm complying with IRS’s legal requirements, I'll action your request immediately.
