I collect private information, including names, email addresses, and sometimes personal addresses and payment details, in the following ways on the Paperback Kingdom blog:
1 // Through my email lists when you subscribe or opt-in (are emailed a free download). I use ActiveCampaign and occasionally Leadpages for our subscription services, automated freebies, and newsletters, so personal information is shared with these services, but not anybody else.
3 // When I do giveaways, I sometimes require the winner’s personal address to send them physical goods that they have won. This information is not stored, and only kept until the winner has correctly received their items. I do not share or disclose this information to anybody.
Likewise, if the winner receives a free electronic copy of a book, I require their email address. I do not share or disclose this information to anybody, and the email address is not stored or added to my mailing lists.
4 // My services sometimes require us to collect payment details when I send invoices to our clients. This information is not stored, and I do not share or disclose this information to anybody. I generally use PayPal for payments.
