What information we hold about you
If you have bought something from us we will have your email address, phone number, address and answers to twenty or so questions required to personalise a novel for you. Information is only used to help us deliver the parcels and contact you.
You may also optionally decide to receive our newsletter and special offers. You can opt-out of this at any time by sending an email to email@example.com
We also maintain an order history of your purchases. This allows you and us to track your deliveries and review your past purchases. We may offer you a reward for purchases or make an offer we think you might like based on your order history.
We also collect information of a general nature about how many 'hits' our website gets. And we monitor the site traffic patterns; this tells us which areas of the site are being visited more than others. It also helps us build a more useful site in subsequent re-designs. We don't track individual users pathways through the site.
What we do with your information
In addition to processing your order, we also maintain an order history of your purchases. This allows you and us to track your deliveries and review your past purchases. We may offer you a reward for purchases or make an offer we think you might like based on your order history. We may also send out an email newsletter. These are only emailed to you if you have opted in to receive newsletters at the point of payment for your order.
If you don't want to receive these offers, or our occasional newsletter, simply send your email name to: firstname.lastname@example.org. We NEVER exchange, sell or otherwise give away your email address to other companies. Your email address is used solely by us for emailing you regarding your orders and to update you with our newsletter.
Who else sees your information?
We may have to disclose some of your information to service suppliers to help complete your order. These parties include Royal Mail, Parcel Line, FedEx, TNT and other courier services.
