WHO WE ARE
Jaime Reese (“us”, “we”, “our”) is a pseudonym for the author and owner of this website as well as the owner of the newsletter mailing list managed through the MailChimp service. All Jaime Reese books are self-published through a private label, Romandeavor, Inc. Jaime Reese is the only author publishing through Romandeavor. Therefore, only Jaime Reese and Romandeavor, Inc. have access to the information submitted with each newsletter subscription.

However, in a few cases, some of our website features may not function as a result. This website uses the following cookie types: (1) Session/Functionality Cookies.

HOW WE USE YOUR DATA
We may use the information we collect in the following ways:
• To send periodic newsletters containing news, special offers, and general information about goods/services we provide and upcoming events
• To administer a contest, promotion, survey or other site feature or update.
• To follow up after initial correspondence (via email).
• To maintain site security
• To improve the services we provide and overall website traffic information
HOW DO WE STORE YOUR DATA
The security of your data is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
HOW DO WE PROTECT YOUR INFORMATION
Data collected by third parties is managed by their respective privacy policies (as listed above). For data we can access, your personal information is contained behind secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of persons who have special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential. When orders are placed (e.g. signed paperbacks), all transactions are processed through a gateway provider (PayPal) and are not stored or processed on our servers.
We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your information unless we provide users with advance notice. This does not include website hosting partners and other parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or serving our users, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential.
THIRD-PARTY LINKS (text links or graphic/badge links)
Occasionally, we may include links to other websites via a link or badge which the visitor clicks then leaves our site. These third-party sites have separate and independent privacy policies. We therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites. You should exercise caution and look at the privacy statement applicable to the website in question. We seek to protect the integrity of our site and welcome any feedback about these sites and will promptly remove them should they pose a risk to our visitors.
Unsubscribing from newsletters
In the footer of each newsletter, you will find an ‘unsubscribe’ link. Additionally, you can refer to any prior newsletter edition and choose to “update your preferences” by clicking the link also found in the footer of the email newsletter. Within your preferences setting, you can see all the data that is currently collected.
MailChimp does not permanently delete unsubscribe requests. They retain unsubscribe requests for record keeping purposes to ensure you do not receive additional mailers after your “unsubscribe” request. If you would like to have your personal data completely removed from our list, you will need to contact me so that I can manually remove your name and data.
YOUR DATA PROTECTION RIGHTS
You have the right to access your personal data held by the site owner, to know how we use it, and to update or correct your personal data. This policy should help make that clear, but specific questions are always welcome. You also have the right to request that we delete all personal data.
Our website does not address anyone under the age of 13 (“Children”). We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13. If you are a parent or guardian and you are aware that your Children has provided us with Personal Data, please contact us. If we become aware that we have collected Personal Data from children without verification of parental consent, we take steps to remove that information from our servers.
All inquiries and requests relating to your personal data can be directed to Jaime Reese at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will make good faith efforts to resolve requests and respond to such messages in a timely manner.
