Third-party email aggregator
We don’t currently subscribe users to our site, although we do allow users to comment. The SUBSCRIBE buttons in various locations on the website will take users to a landing page managed by a third-party email list aggregator program (Mailer Lite), which we use to collect your name and email address for purposes of communicating with you via newsletters and product offers. We will not sell your information or otherwise share it with anyone.
Certain products links throughout our website, primarily those for Amazon.com, include affiliate marketing links that will compensate Open Road Press (https://www.openroadpress.com, the publishing company owned and operated by Tim Bishop), should users purchase any products after clicking on such links. As an Amazon Associate, I earn from qualifying purchases. The price you pay has no bearing on what compensation comes back to Open Road Press. You pay no more or no less than any other customer who lands on the marketer’s website by other means and purchases the same product. All purchases that occur after clicking on these links are managed solely by third-party marketers and are governed by their terms and privacy policies.
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

Embedded content from other websites

Who we share your data with
If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
