Privacy Policy

Who we are

Ink Elves is committed to maintaining the trust and confidence of anyone who reads or visits the website.  In particular, we will not trade, sell, or give away any data that you provide when either commenting on our posts or contacting us directly.  We have created this privacy policy to let you know when and why Ink Elves collects your information, how we use it, how we keep it secure, and when we may disclose it to others.

Types of data we collect

Website Cookies

Cookies are designed to make your website experience more personal.  They are often used when determining which adverts to show you, or to make it easier for you to fill in online forms.

Like most websites, we collect cookies to store information.  You can set your browser to let you know when a cookie is being sent, or set it to refuse all cookies altogether.  You do not need to have cookies activated to read this blog, but deactivating them may result in a poorer experience and may not be able to use some aspects of the site.

This website uses Google Analytics which helps us to see which posts are popular and where our readers originated from.  Google Analytics may track your IP address but they do not collect any personal information.

We do not run any advertisements on this website.

Information Collection and Use

The only time we will collect information about you is if you choose to leave a comment on a blog post.  To do this, you will be requested to enter your name and email address.  You do not have to enter your real name if you do not wish to do so.

If you choose to contact us directly, we will receive your email address and name.  We will not store this if we do not go on to do business together.

Access to your personal information

Under GDPR, you are entitled to view, amend, or delete the personal information that we hold. To do this, please use the contact form on the website.

Website security

Website security is incredibly important to us, but it is important to remember that anything you do on the internet is not 100% secure.  The same goes for electronic storage.  If any breaches of data do occur, we will send an email and place a notice on this website within 48 hours.

Changes to this Privacy Notice

This privacy policy was created on the 4th February 2020 and will remain in effect for the lifetime of the website.  Ink Elves reserves the right to change or update this privacy policy at any time and suggest that readers of the blog check the policy periodically.  By using this website, you agree to the information outlined in this policy.
