This Policy has been compiled to inform those who are concerned with how their Personally Identifiable Information (PII) is being used online. PII 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.
This Policy explains when and why I collect personal information about people who visit my website, how I use that information, and what I do with it.
For the purposes of the EU General Data Protection Regulation ((EU 2016/679) ("GDPR"), I Diana Fraser, am the "data controller'. If you have any questions about this policy, please contact me via my contact details at the end of this policy.
What personal information do I collect from the people that visit my website or blog?
When subscribing to my newsletter, commenting on my blog, or completing the Contact form, you may be asked to enter your first and last name and email address.
How do I use your information?
Your email address will only be used to email you a periodic newsletter you have subscribed to regarding my books, or to respond to a comment sent to me via the Contact form.
How do I protect visitor information?
I only provide articles and information. I never ask for personal or private information like credit card numbers.
I do use an SSL certificate.

Third Party Disclosure
I do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information.
Third Party Links

My website does not use Google Analytics or Google AdSense.
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.
I 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 I will take the following responsive action, should a data breach occur:
I will notifiy the users via email, within 7 business days.
I 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 penalites for violations.
I collect your email address in order to:
- Market to my mailing list, respond to enquiries, and/or other requests or questions.
To be in accordance with CANSPAM I agree to the following:
- NOT use false, or misleading subjects or email addresses
- Identify the message as an advertisement in some reasonable way
