Privacy Policy

Pauline Baird Jones operates the website, which provides information about her books to readers and visitors to this site. This page is used to inform website visitors regarding my policies with the collection, use, and disclosure of Personal Information. I am committed to respecting and protecting the privacy of my online visitors. I provide certain services and opportunities for users of my website. In order to provide these services, I may require that you submit some personal information (email addresses). Please read the following to learn more about my Privacy Policy.

Information Gathered When you register to become a subscriber to my newsletter, I am collecting information from you in the form of an email address. This information is necessary to communicate with you and to fulfill your request to receive news and updates about my books. I may also mention a special book or ebook sales events, attendance at a signing, or other book-related information. Some of my blog pages and posts may also offer comment forums or a giveaway opportunity, with a subsequent request for your email in order to fulfill the terms of the giveaway. Please be advised that information posted in these venues becomes public knowledge. (I usually ask that you supply me with your email for a giveaway in a private email message to just me, not everyone who saw the post.)

Information Sharing I will not sell, rent or share your personally identifiable information with others unless I have your permission or am required to do so by law. I will not share aggregate data with any other parties.

Use of Contractors I may retain the service of outside contractors to perform services on my behalf (for example, to help provide technical support services or send out my newsletters). At times, I must disclose relevant personally identifiable information such as email addresses, about you to my contractors so they may provide these specific services for us. I require our contractors to keep this information confidential and to only use the information on my behalf.

You have the option to either accept or refuse these cookies and know when a cookie is being sent to your computer.

Security We value your trust in providing us with your Personal Information, thus we are striving to use commercially acceptable means of protecting it. But remember that no method of transmission over the internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure and reliable, and we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

Links to Third-Party Web Sites My service may contain links to other websites and software. I am not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of these websites or software. Please visit the privacy policies of these third-party sites in order to understand their privacy and information collection practices.

Children’s Privacy Our Services do not address anyone under the age of 13. We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under 13. In the case we discover that a child under 13 has provided us with personal information, we immediately delete this from our servers. If you are a parent or guardian and you are aware that your child has provided us with personal information, please contact us so that we will be able to do the necessary actions.

Affiliates I use affiliate links on this site.

Changes to this Privacy Policy I may amend this policy occasionally. It is your responsibility to check this page for any notices of change. If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me.
