I value your interest in my books, your trust, and your privacy. For your sake and mine, I collect as little information about you as I can to function here, and I am taking every step necessary to protect it. I will never sell or share it.
[Lawful Basis: Consent] I collect your email address and whatever name you choose to give me to create your email subscription, and I do this with a double opt-in process to be sure I have your permission on file to email you. I won’t sell or share that list with anyone. The email list information is solely stored by my email provider (presently Aweber), shared only to the extent required by our terms of service agreement, and where legally required by law.
[Lawful Basis: Legitimate Interests] My email service and content delivery partners (at present Aweber and Digioh) collect data, including but not limited to, clicks, IP addresses and location. I do not seek, see or directly use that information, but it is necessary to their service, collected under our terms of service agreement, and again only shared as legally allowed by law.
Tom Vetter Books, LLC and tomvetterbooks.com Data Collection
Tom Vetter Books, LLC and tomvetterbooks.com collects information on you in three ways.
- [Lawful Basis: Consent] Information that you directly provide by filling out the signup form: A first name/nickname you supplied so that I can address you personally; and your email address, so I can send you the email notices you doubly consented to receive. This information might be able to be tied directly to you because of information you’ve provided. This information is delivered directly to my email service as described above. However, we have closed the email signup mechanism indefinitely, and no new signups will be taken until further notice, as I work through the GDPR requirements to ensure full compliance.
- [Lawful Basis: Legal Obligation] Sales and gifts records. If you previously purchased books from Tom Vetter Books, LLC directly or via tomvetterbooks.com, or won a book via a giveaway, I recorded the sale or gift for IRS tax purposes, to include name, delivery address and/or email address, the book purchased/gifted and the price and fees paid. All online sales financial details were handled via PayPal, and none of your financial information (e.g., credit card) was seen or recorded by me. These sales/gift records will be retained only as required by IRS regulations. Meanwhile, I have closed my online store indefinitely, and no new sales will be transacted until further notice as I work through the GDPR requirements to ensure full compliance. But my books are available from online booksellers whose links can be found on the site’s book pages.
- [Lawful Basis: Legitimate Interests] Some information is automatically collected by the third-party partner hosting this site (at present TigerTech): IP address, implied location, pages visited, and browser type. That information is only used in the aggregate to create a profile of site visitors and types of content that visitors identify with. I do not see or use that information, and it is only shared where required by our terms of service agreement, or as required by law.
If you would like to know if we have any information that is directly attributable to you, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
