Privacy Policy

Privacy Notice & Terms and Conditions
This privacy notice discloses the privacy practices for JimmyLeonard.com.

Information Collection, Use, and Sharing
Like most websites, this one collects non-personally-identifying information from web browsers and servers, including browser type, referring link or domain, language preference, and time and date of visit. My purpose in collecting this data is to better understand why people visit the site and how they use it. I use some data analytics tools such as Google Analytics to view this data in aggregate and observe trends.

Some visitors to this website may choose to interact in a way that requires me to gather personally-identifying information. This includes requesting to join an email list, entering a giveaway, or commenting on a book review or blog post. This site runs a WordPress blog, and it does collect potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on posts. Blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left. I infrequently send emails about new releases or upcoming events, and recipients may request to leave the list at any time. Email addresses for mailing lists or giveaways are privately and securely stored in separate domains as noted in the applicable widget. For example, I’ve used HelloBar and Rafflecopter to collect emails. I only share information with services that need to know it to process it on my behalf and have agreed not to share it with others. Some of these services may be located outside of your home country, and by using this website, you consent to transferring your data to them. I am the sole owner of this data, and I do not publish, share, or sell any personally-identifying data. Users may request to leave a mailing list or update their contact information at any time by emailing author@jimmyleonard.com.

Cookies and Affiliate Links
A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer. When the visitor returns to that same website, the browser returns that information. JimmyLeonard.com uses cookies to help track and identify visitors, their usage of this website, and their website access preferences. Visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using this website, realizing that certain features of this website may not function properly without the aid of cookies. In the case of affiliate links, a third party website such as Amazon.com will use a cookie to track any purchase you may make and credit my affiliate account. I’ve made every effort to disclose affiliate links. Users understand that clicking any outside link may result in a cookie stored on their computers. My privacy policy does not cover Amazon or any other affiliate sites or advertisers who may collect cookies and other data from you.

Updates to Policy
While most changes would likely be minor, I may update this policy at my sole discretion. A visitor’s continued use of this site constitutes acceptance of whatever current policy is posted. I encourage visitors to check back from time to time.
