Privacy Policy

Who we are

Our website address is: http://christinekling.com. It is Tell-Tale Press/Christine Kling’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect from you or which you may provide to us, in the circumstances set out below. Accordingly, we have developed this privacy policy in order for you to understand how we collect, use, communicate, disclose, safeguard and otherwise make use of your personally identifiable information (“Personal Data”). 

What personal data we collect and why we collect it:

Author Mailing List

When you sign up to receive free content, including eBooks, videos, or contest prize giveaways, we will collect your email address, first name, and last name in order to send you email newsletters with information about new book releases, price markdowns, and upcoming author appearances.

Media

If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Contact forms

When you fill in the contact form, we will collect your email address, first name, and last name in order to send you an email in reply.

Cookies

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Who we share your data with

We take your privacy seriously and will not share your Personal Data with others, except as permitted by applicable law or as set out below:

We share an anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) as necessary with third parties who provide services or functions on our behalf and who require the information to provide those specific services to us. These third parties may include social media advertising platforms such as Facebook and Google Adwords for the purpose of custom audience generation and the development of targeting criteria for other audiences. Please note that we have appropriate data privacy safeguards in place with third parties with whom we share Personal Data as described above and who are providing services or functions on our behalf.

How we protect your data

We have implemented security policies and technical measures to safeguard the Personal Data we collect. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards that comply with applicable law, including the GDPR, to safeguard Personal Data from accidental loss, destruction or damage and unauthorized access, use and disclosure.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

If you subscribe to our newsletter, your email address will remain on our list indefinitely or until you unsubscribe. Any email sent to you will contain an unsubscribe link, and you can unsubscribe at any time.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have signed up for the mailing list or left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us by writing to ck@christinekling.com. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service. We use Askimet for this service and their privacy policy is available at https://automattic.com/privacy/.

Emails and IP addresses may be shared with our email service provider. We use MailerLite to manage our email marketing subscriber list and to send emails to our subscribers.
