Your Privacy Matters

To ensure that you are informed about how RJ Scott & Love Lane Books uses personal data, we've updated the privacy policies for our site and newsletter. Please look over the new details, which will be effective starting May 25, 2018. Here is some information on our policies:

Why we process personal data and what we use it for

We collect data in two ways. Firstly by the user signing up for our newsletter. We do not share this information with anyone and the data is used to create newsletters keeping you informed of news, reviews, sales, releases, etc from RJ Scott. We only collect email addresses and names.

We are currently in the process of contacting all subscribers and asking them to re-subscribe. A subscriber will be prompted to resubscribe to newsletters every three years. 

Held on file with AppMailer – Email, Name (i.e. rj@rjscott.co.uk | RJ Scott). There could also be an indication of why a subscriber signed up (a promotion for a particular series to enable targeted marketing for a new release in that series).

Held on file with WordPress – anyone who signs up with the website – the site holds your name and email to be able to send you updates whenever something is added to the site.

 

Third Party Tracking

  • We use Google Analytics and Amazon Associates codes, and these use cookies.
  • We embed content from App Mailer Lite
  • We collect information for our email list.
  • We offer freebies on our site.

What counts as personal data?

Personal data is any information that can be used to identify someone, whether through direct or indirect means, including commonly used online identifiers such as cookies and location data. On this site:

  • The consent box in email subscriptions is not pre-ticked by default.
  • We gather emails to enable us to send out newsletters
  • Consent for cookie usage is now included in any signups
  • We do not share a user’s information with any third-party promoters
  • Before users can leave a comment, we will get consent by using a checkbox and disclose that this site will store comments and information relating to the comment such as the date and computer’s IP address. This data is not used in any way by Love Lane Books

Right of access

Data subjects have the right to access their personal data and to know how it is being processed.

Right to be forgotten – this policy allows EU data subjects to request to have all their data deleted from your server or transferred to another company.

Breach of personal data we will notify the Supervisory Authority within 72 hours unless the breach is harmless and poses no risk to the individual. If a breach is concluded to be high risk, Love Lane Books will inform the individual as well.

Personal addresses

When buying signed paperbacks from us (or winning them in competitions) we will collect name, address, email and telephone number (for the postal company). This data is held in secure files and is not shared with anyone outside of Love Lane Books and the postal company who deliver the parcel. The data is deleted from our servers after the books have been sent out. 

In addition, RJ has a note of addresses for people who work with her on proofing, editing, etc. These are not shared with anyone, and the data is used to send out Christmas cards on an annual basis. If you would like your information deleted from RJ's notes then please email RJ, rj@rjscott.co.uk
