Last Update: December 31, 2020.
Please keep in mind that I’m not an expert on these things. I had to research the hell out of becoming GDPR compliant to put this document together, and it’s probably still missing some stuff. If you are a GDPR dude and notice an error, please let me know.
Super short version: I respect your privacy and am committed to protecting it. Also, I make money from this website.
Okay, here we go…
This policy only applies to this website. Other people might use information from this website on their own website – that’s republished content and we can’t control it.
If you want to republish content from this website, please contact me for permission.
When you sign up to the newsletter your email gets collected. You can unsubscribe at any time at the bottom of every email, or by emailing me directly. Things such as if you open the email, click on a link in the email, unsubscribe, etc. are tracked. This means that we can see what actions you are taking. We rarely look at it, but we have the option. This information is stored in the database of our email client. It is not passed on to any other people or companies.
Emails we send include newsletters, website updates, promotional material, and administrative notices.
SF Nonfiction Books uses MailerLite to manage and send emails to subscribers. MailerLite is a 3rd-party provider, which may process your data using industry standard technologies to help monitor and improve the newsletter.
When you leave a comment, whatever information you put is stored in the SF Nonfiction Books database. In most cases, we ignore this information. Occasionally, we may email a user to answer a specific question with sensitive information. Also, if you leave a comment, the information you put will be publicly visible. Things like the name you use, your avatar, the comment, your website link, etc. Your email address will never be available publicly.
Other 3rd Party Services
SF Nonfiction Books uses google analytics and other plugins that automatically track your actions. They may track technical data such as how you found my website, what pages you looked at, what links you click, and other actions you make when on the website. Unlike MailerLite, these 3rd-party trackers collect anonymous data. This means that we can’t see that is was you personally that did the action, but your action is counted along with everyone else’s. We use this anonymous data for marketing and analysis.
SF Nonfiction Books uses security plugins which will log your IP address, operating system type, browser type, etc. This is to protect the website against spam, hackers, and other illegal activity.
Sale of Training Manuals
The majority of income generated by this website is via the sale of SF Nonfiction Books publications.
Payments are processed by either Stripe or Paypal, depending on your preference.
Both of these companies are very well-established and trusted payment processors.
SF Nonfiction Books never gets access to your secure payment details.
This is selling other people’s products. When you buy something via a link on this website chances are we will get a small cut. It does not make the product cost you any extra, in fact, sometimes you will get a discount.
In order for this to work, tracking links are used. You are not obligated to click on any link or purchase anything advertised. Also, we have no control over the actions of the companies selling the products. Products can change at their discretion, and the product availability, sales with the organization, and all transactions with the 3rd-party are not associated or conducted by SF Nonfiction Books.
You should assume that every single link on our site is an affiliate link or compensation link (not every link is, but just assume it anyway).
SF Nonfiction Books is an affiliate for Amazon Associates.
Advertisements from companies such as Google Adsense may be displayed on this website.
If you click on one of these advertisements we are paid a small commission.
Impressions and clicks for these advertisements are tracked anonymously.
If you have any questions or concerns about the integrity of the SF Nonfiction Books website or any of its income streams please let me know via the contact page.
