Privacy Policy

If you do not want to read the "legal speak" that is included below, here is a quick summary of On My Kindle's Privacy Policy:

I only send emails to people that subscribe to newsletters, or authors that request reviews. You should not receive emails from me unless you have initiated contact by emailing me or filling out a form. If you do receive an unsolicited email from me, please contact me at onmykindle1@gmail.com

You are not required to give any information other than your email address for the newsletter; however, you will be asked for your name, email, website, etc... on the Request a Review form.

On My Kindle uses cookies for use in rendering website traffic reports in the Blogger Dashboard to determine the number of visitors the website receives, the pages that visitors view, and the countries visitors are browsing the website from. You can opt out of this by browsing anonymously or turning off cookies in your browser. Doing this will not affect what you are able to see on my website.

If you would like to unsubscribe to On My Kindle's newsletter, there is a link at the bottom for you to do so. If the link does not work, or you cannot find it, you can send the unsubscribe request via email.

I will not sell, or trade, the information that you give me to a third party.

Here is the full version of On My Kindle's Privacy Policy:

On My Kindle Privacy Policy

This privacy policy has been compiled to better serve those who are concerned with how their 'Personally identifiable information' (PII) is being used online. PII, as used in US privacy law and information security, is information that can be used on its own or with other information to identify, contact, or locate a single person, or to identify an individual in context. Please read our privacy policy carefully to get a clear understanding of how we collect, use, protect or otherwise handle your Personally Identifiable Information in accordance with our website.

What personal information do we collect from the people that visit our blog?

When requesting a review, or signing up for the newsletter, you will be asked to enter your email address and other details so that we can better assist you.

When do we collect information?

We collect information from you when you subscribe to a newsletter or enter information on our site.

How do we use your information?

To send periodic emails regarding new reviews posted on On My Kindle.

How do we protect visitor information?

We use regular Malware Scanning, and we do not use an SSL certificate because you will not make purchases from On My Kindle. We only provide articles and information, we never ask for personal or private information like email addresses, or credit card numbers.

Do we use 'cookies'?

Yes. Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer's hard drive through your Web browser (if you allow) that enables the site's or service provider's systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information. We use cookies to help us compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interaction so that we can offer better site experiences and tools in the future.

You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You do this through your browser (like Internet Explorer) settings. Each browser is a little different, so look at your browser's Help menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookies.

If you disable cookies your experience will not be affected, and the site's functionality should not be affected.

Third Party Disclosure

We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information.

Third party links

Because I promote indie authors and their works, there are third party links in 99% of my posts. These are not affiliate links and I do not earn compensation when you click those links to buy a book from online retailers.

The sidebar contains some affiliate links. If you click on them and make a purchase or agree to join a site, I will earn compensation. This fact will be clearly stated in close proximity to the affiliate link. Clicking on an affiliate link will not cost you anything, unless you make a purchase or opt-in to receive emails from a third party.

Opting out:

You can opt out by visiting the Network Advertising initiative opt out page or permanently using the Google Analytics Opt Out Browser add on.

California Online Privacy Protection Act

CalOPPA is the first state law in the nation to require commercial websites and online services to post a privacy policy. The law's reach stretches well beyond California to require a person or company in the United States (and conceivably the world) that operates websites collecting personally identifiable information from California consumers to post a conspicuous privacy policy on its website stating exactly the information being collected and those individuals with whom it is being shared, and to comply with this policy. - See more at: http://consumercal.org/california-online-privacy-protection-act-caloppa/#sthash.0FdRbT51.dpuf

According to CalOPPA we agree to the following:

Users can visit our site anonymously

Once this privacy policy is created, we will add a link to it on our home page, or as a minimum on the first significant page after entering our website.

Our Privacy Policy link includes the word 'Privacy', and can be easily be found on the page specified above.

Users will be notified of any privacy policy changes on our Privacy Policy Page

Users can change the email address that their newsletters are sent to by email: onmykindle1@gmail.com

How does our site handle do not track signals?

We honor do not track signals and do not track, plant cookies, or use advertising when a Do Not Track (DNT) browser mechanism is in place.

Does our site allow third party behavioral tracking?

It's also important to note that we do not allow third party behavioral tracking.

COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act)

When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under 13, the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, the nation's consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children's privacy and safety online.

We do not specifically market to children under 13.

Fair Information Practices

The Fair Information Practices Principles form the backbone of privacy law in the United States and the concepts they include have played a significant role in the development of data protection laws around the globe. Understanding the Fair Information Practice Principles and how they should be implemented is critical to comply with the various privacy laws that protect personal information.

In order to be in line with Fair Information Practices we will take the following responsive action, should a data breach occur:

We will notify the users via in site notification within 7 business days

We also agree to the individual redress principle, which requires that individuals have a right to pursue legally enforceable rights against data collectors and processors who fail to adhere to the law. This principle requires not only that individuals have enforceable rights against data users, but also that individuals have recourse to courts or a government agency to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.

CAN SPAM Act

The CAN-SPAM Act is a law that sets the rules for commercial email, establishes requirements for commercial messages, gives recipients the right to have emails stopped from being sent to them, and spells out tough penalties for violations.

We collect your email address in order to send information, respond to inquiries, and/or other requests or questions.

To be in accordance with CANSPAM we agree to the following:
  • NOT use false, or misleading subjects or email addresses
  • Identify the message as an advertisement in some reasonable way
  • Include the physical address of our business or site headquarters
  • Monitor third party email marketing services for compliance, if one is used
  • Honor opt-out/unsubscribe requests quickly
  • Allow users to unsubscribe by using the link at the bottom of each email
If at any time you would like to unsubscribe from receiving future emails, you can contact me, or follow the instructions at the bottom of each email.
