I may change this Privacy Policy from time to time without notice, and I will post any changes here so that you will always know the policies regarding the information I gather and how I use and share that information.

SCOPE OF PRIVACY POLICY

This Privacy Policy covers only information collected on this Site in order to provide you with certain Services such as, but not limited to, all information and opportunities shared with you through my website and email.

I encourage you to review the privacy policies of any Third-Party Sites or services before providing any of them with your personal information.

You may visit my site anonymously. In connection with my Services, I may request personal information from you, such as your name and email address, in connection with your use of, or participation in the Site or Services. I only collect personal information from you if you voluntarily submit such information. I will never intentionally disclose any personal information to any third party without your permission—through opting-in or similar procedures—except as provided for herein or otherwise as permitted or required under Applicable Laws. I do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personal information, except as set forth herein.

I will share information with necessary third parties for the purpose of carrying out the Services. Your participation in the Services constitutes your consent to such disclosure and use of such information. In the event that your personal information is requested as part of my surveys, polls or promotions, such personal information may be added to your registration information.

Note: TheVeganWriter.com use Google Analytics, a very common and trusted analytics solution on the internet.

I use such information for my business purposes, to administer the Site, to better manage the Site, to understand how users use the Site and to improve the Site.

I maintain control of how your non-personal information will be used.

I will comply within a reasonable time and, in any case, within the time limits established by applicable law. I may ask you for additional information to verify your identity.

If you need further assistance with unsubscribing or opting-out of any of the Services, or with redaction of your personal information, please email me at Carole@TheVeganWriter.com for assistance. Please note that I may not be able to remove your information from the records of any third parties who have received your information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

At my discretion, I may determine that your lack of engagement in the Services indicates your desire to opt-out of the Services. For example, you may be removed from my email list if you have not opened an email from me for a certain period of time. You may opt-in again at any time.
