Sites affected by this policy

Data collection: website

Non-personally identifying information such as browser type, referring site, date and time of visit may be collected for the purpose of understanding how visitors use the site. This information is not released or shared with anyone not associated with Arctic Circle Press.

Personally identifying information such as IP address, name, email address, website address are collected for users who choose to leave comments on posts. Email addresses will not be posted, only name and website address if the user chooses to share it. This information is used by WordPress to send further comments/responses to users who choose to receive them or by Arctic Circle Press for the sole purpose of communicating with website visitors. This information will not be disclosed to anyone outside of Arctic Circle Press and it’s contractors except in response to a court order or governmental request.

At times, similar data may be collected on other forms for giveaways, book orders, opinion polls, etc. We will not ask for any data that is not necessary and relevant for the purpose stated on the form.

Held on file with WordPress: name and email address of anyone who signs up to receive updates when something is added to the website. Users may unsubscribe from these updates at any time.

Cookies: Arctic Circle Press uses cookies to help identify and track visitors and their usage of this website. Visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers may set their browsers to refuse cookies with the caveat that some site features may not function properly.

Data collection: newsletter

This newsletter is sent through MailerLite and subscribers names, email address, IP address, time zone, time of sign up, and possibly the reason/method for signing up (website sign up, Instafreebie or BookFunnel sign up, other promotion, etc.) are stored on MailerLite’s website (see MailerLite’s privacy policy). Arctic Circle Press uses this information for sending newsletters to subscribers and it will not be shared with anyone outside Arctic Circle Press and it’s contractors. In the footer of every newsletter, you will find an unsubscribe link. You may use it to unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time. This does not delete your personal data from MailerLite or Arctic Circle Press’s records. To have your data deleted, you must contact Arctic Circle Press by filling out this form.

Data Collection: PayHip and Patreon

Both PayHip and Patreon require you to create accounts with them in order to do business. This will include name, email, and delivery address so that Arctic Circle Press may fulfil book orders on PayHip and send rewards on Patreon. However, Arctic Circle Press cannot manage or remove your data from these services. This is something you must do yourself from within their website.

Your rights based on GDPR

  • You have the right to access your personal data and to know how we use it.
  • You have the right to request that we update or correct your personal data.
  • You have the right to be forgotten. In other words, you may request that we will delete your personal data.

At the bottom of every email received from the blog subscription or the newsletter subscription are links to update your data or unsubscribe entirely. This does not delete your personal data from WordPress or MailerLite. To have your data deleted or if you don’t want to wait for the next email, you can contact Arctic Circle Press by filling out this form at any time with your request.
