Last Update: December 01, 2021.
On this page, I (Sam Fury) will do my best to explain what information is collected about you on these websites and how it might be used. If you have any questions about anything on this page you can email me via the contact page.
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: We respect your privacy and are committed to protecting it. Also, we make money from our websites.
Okay, here we go…
This policy only applies our websites. Other people might use information from our websites on their own website(s) – that’s republished content and we can’t control it.
If you want to republish content from any of our websites, 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 Clickfunnels and Twilio Sendgrid to manage and send emails to subscribers. These companies are 3rd-party providers, which may process your data using industry standard technologies to help monitor and improve the newsletter. Find their respective privacy policies below:
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, Facebook pixel, ClickFunnels, and other plugins that automatically track your actions. They may track technical data such as how you found the website, what pages you looked at, what links you click, and other actions you make when on the website. These 3rd-party trackers collect anonymous data. This means that we can’t see that it 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 Products
The majority of income generated by SF Nonfiction Books is via the sale of SF Nonfiction Books products.
Payments are processed by Stripe. 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 our websites that isn’t a SF Nonfiction Books product we may or may not earn a portion of the sale from it. 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 SF Nonfiction Books in return for placement payment or click 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 us know via the contact page.
