Plain English Summary

Your privacy is important.

Children (under 18s) are not eligible to use my services and should not submit any personal information to this website.

CookieLawInfo.com does not actively track you as an individual.

Should you send us an email via the contact form, your name, email address and message will be emailed to me (as you would expect). This information is kept private. I will store this information within our own email system so that we are able to respond to you.

Should you comment on a blog post or web page on this site, then your name, email address, IP address and message will be stored in our website database (as you would expect). This makes your name, website address and comment (but not your email address) viewable by the general public on the website.

The website does use some cookies when you browse this website. These are used to ensure proper running of this website, and also to help us improve your experience when browsing.

We do not use 3rd Party / Tracking / Advertising cookies.

If you don’t know what cookies are or if you would like to find out more – here is a great beginners guide from the BBC.

NONE OF THE INFORMATION WE GATHER VIA COOKIES IDENTIFIES YOU AS AN INDIVIDUAL – IT IS ALL ENTIRELY ANONYMOUS.

The cookies we use are detailed below:

Cookie Type Duration Description
Cookie Footer Persistent One year In the footer of each web page on this site you will see a message alerting you of our privacy and cookie policy. If you’ve seen this message once, you probably won’t want to see it again. We use a cookie to remember this setting. User data is all anonymous.
Post Comment Persistent One year If you leave a comment on the website e.g. on our ‘Social’ page, then a cookie may be stored to ‘remember’ your email address for the next time you post (should you choose the “remember me” option).
WordPress Persistent One year WordPress is the Content Management System (CMS) that runs this website. It uses a cookie when logging in and out and is essential for proper website operation. It is only set if you are a registered user, so for most people it is not set at all. User data is all anonymous.

To find out how to delete all cookies, please read the documentation or help pages for the web browser that you use.

Which organisation is collecting this information

Scribblermax.co.uk is a website owned by Maxine Morrey, a UK-based writer.

How this information is used

If you have chosen to share it with me, we use your email address to contact you in reply to your message, or to send you other email updates. If you have entered your email address to leave a comment on the blog, it is used to identify your comment, however it is not displayed on the website or shared with any third party.

I may also use your email to help resolve issues or disputes, for example if you tell me that you cannot see any of your posts on the website, I would probably search our database using your email address to help diagnose the problem.

Our disclosure of this information

Ido not share your personal information or email address with third parties.

Protection of your information

I use my best endeavour to safeguard the confidentiality of your personally identifiable information but I do not use encryption (such as SSL) or firewalls to further protect the information as it travels across the Internet. I do not believe that the personal information we collect warrants this level of security. It is important to be aware that there is no such thing as “perfect internet security”.

How to correct inaccurate information

Once posted, you cannot change or remove any comments you have submitted on my website pages and/or posts. However, if you would like to have this information removed please contact me and I will do this for you.

You should know that because of technical constraints, all information is never completely removed from my databases. Therefore, you should not expect that all of your personally identifiable information will be completely removed from my databases in response to your requests that it be removed. I will aim to remove all publicly-facing information.

How to contact us

Please use the contact form on this site to contact us.

Changes to the Privacy Policy

From time to time I may update this Privacy Policy in line with website changes that may affect the personal information I gather about you. It is assumed that you accept such changes if you continue to use the site and services. If you do not accept such changes then you should stop using ScribblerMaxi’s website and services, and contact me (details above) if you would like any information removed.
